FIX IT IF YOU CAN, part 4, conclusion

Fourth: There’s the kind that when they’re broken only God can fix.

Back in the closets in our hearts, there are the broken things that we have given up on. We tried. And tried. But couldn’t fix them. I remind you GOD CAN! And He often does. Sometimes he does it after we have given up. He “bottles” our tears.* He hears and cares. But sometimes he comes up against the stubborn will of man so it takes longer than we want.

They have been assigned to things we cannot understand. The unseen world. That supernatural spiritual world that is not made up of matter, at least not matter science can study in a laboratory. Broken hearts, broken minds, broken spirits, broken bodies. All manifested in the form of addictions, mental disorders, human trafficking, child and elder abuse, crime, violence, torture, and wars.

This was the kind of issue that caused Daniel to fast and pray intensely for 21 days. Finally, an angel appeared and said that Daniel’s prayers had been heard the first day he prayed, and the answer was sent; however, it had been held up by the “prince of Persia” and “prince of Greece.” Other places in the Bible refer to the princes and powers of the air. A Christian’s warfare is not a time of playing Patty Cake.

The Bible does not give us (Christians) the right to command angels, but we do have the right to ask God to command angels. LET US GO BOLDLY AND HUMBLY TO HIM, and say, “Lord, I can’t but you can.

*Psalm 56:8 “put thou my tears in thy bottle” Also a scripture in Revelation refers to the tears in a cruise as an incense. I don’t claim to understand that. I just know it helps me to know there is a record or some means of my prayerful tears lasting until long after I have departed this land.

******

I’m very tired tonight, my dear friends; I hope I am not leaving too many loose ends. It boils down to our need to help fix what we can fix, but we are not expected to fix everything by ourselves. Unity in prayer with fellow Christians sometimes helps. But when all is said and done, we cannot fix the world. But it is fixable and God will do it. I support his plan to bring that day when He Himself is our King and our world will be fixed. Glory to His Majesty! Our Creator God! Our Fixer!!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. It’s so good to know we don’t have to fix everything … and that God cares enough to fix the things we cannot fix. Thanks for an encouraging post.

    Yes stubbornness I know because I am to a fault most of the time. It has helped me a few times in my life, but it has also been a hindrance as well. I would say I need to pray foolish stubbornness would be removed, because it can be useful at times like when doctors want me to do things I don’t feel is right for me. God has fixed a lot in me in the past 16 years though anger, really bad temper, bitterness, long held grudges, and a pretty hard heart. There is still much to go like I am still trying to get over a potty mouth it isn’t as bad as it once was, but I still do it from time to time. I smoked for 42 years and quit 7 years ago, but I still vape I have cut down to 1mg of nicotine, but have not been able to let go yet, but I feel it getting closer. Being antisocial that is a big one because well to be honest I don’t like the company of most people and I like my own too much it seems. I call myself The Rough Christian for a reason I am rather rough around the edges.

      Well, the potter knows how to smooth out the rough. He has a tender hand but sometimes the turning and molding can be painful and or tedious. Keep cooperating with Him in making yourself the way He wants you to be. One thing he always wants is for us to commit our will to Him. I’ll do what you want me to do, dear Lord. And I’ll be as graceful as I can. What we lack in gracefulness, we can make up for in gratefulness. 😀
