Fixing What's Broken

It *IS* what it *IS*.Time heals all wounds.
.......that's what *THEY* say.  Whoever *THEY* are.....What do they know?

It is what it is....yes.  But it is not what it shall BE.
                                                         .......and THIS TOO SHALL PASS!

and for the record----*TIME* does not heal all wounds.  Forgiveness, perspective, gratitude, understanding, maturity and grace will mend what's broken.  And those things take time.  Time doesn't heal wounds.  It is JESUS who can heal all wounds.  He has the EXACT measure of grace and peace we need for every moment, every hurt, every disappointment, every season of our lives.  

Hebrews 10:20-21 Now may the God of peace (who is the Author and giver of peace) STRENGTHEN, (complete, perfect) and make you what you OUGHT to be and equip you with everything GOOD that you may carry out His will; while He Himself works IN you and accomplishes what is pleasing in His sight. 

He paid an EXPENSIVE and EXTRAVAGANT price for YOU and in that redemptive work provided a WHOLENESS for you in your entire being.  
                               WHOLE. ENTIRE. COMPLETE. LACKING NOTHING. 

I Thessalonians 5:23-24 May God Himself, the God who makes everything WHOLE, make YOU whole, put you together-spirit, soul and body---and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.  The One who called you is completely dependable.  If He said it, He'll do it.

To *EVERY* thing there is a season and a time and a purpose to EVERYTHING under heaven.

What season are you in? There is PURPOSE in it.  There is a time for things to be broken.  Let them be broken.  There is a time for what lies in ruins to be rebuilt. For things to be fixed and healed.  There is a time for crying.  So cry.  There is a time for laughing.  Then laugh from the depths of your spirit!  There is a time to dance.  So raise the roof.  Let it rip and dance with everything inside of you!  There is a time for being quiet and and allowing the Holy Spirit to just speak.  So stop talking, stop being busy, stop frantically trying to figure things out and just listen.  There is a time for speaking.  There is a time for learning and there is a time to take responsibility for what you've learned and share it.  And yes, there is a time for dying. "Why look for the living among the dead?"........ Leave what's dead behind.

Know what season you are in and be FULLY present in every season you find yourself.  In it all......God is at work.  Know what it is He is doing in that moment and allow the spirit to guide your every thought, every step and every moment through that season.  You will find redemption at work in it all.
