“Broken things can become blessed things if you let God do the mending.”
I came across this quote on Instagram the other day and it totally blessed me. I’ve been trying to track down where this quote comes from and I believe it derives from Psalms 147:3.
Psalms 147:3 says, “ He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
Here are a few other verses that comfort me during difficult times:
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12
“More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5
“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Praying these verses encourages you. As I’m writing this, I am also encouraging myself.
