A Bruised Reed

I stole . . . I mean borrowed this from a friend’s social media post and thought it would fit nicely on here;

Good Morning Lord

“A Place for the Weary

Hebrews 10:35
‘Do not lose the courage you had in the past, which has a great reward.’

Is there anything more frail than a bruised reed? Look at the bruised reed at the water’s edge. A once slender and tall stalk of sturdy river grass, it is now bowed and bent.

Are you a bruised reed? Was it so long ago that you stood so tall, so proud? . . .

Then something happened. You were bruised . . .

  • by harsh words….
  • by a friend’s anger…
  • by a spouse’s betrayal. . . .
  • By a recent trauma…

The bruised reed. . . . Society knows what to do with you. . . . The world will break you off; the world will snuff you out.

But the artists of Scripture proclaim that God won’t. Painted on canvas after canvas is the tender touch of a Creator who has a special place for the bruised and weary of the world. A God who is friend of the wounded heart.”
