Bandaging My Wounds
Psalm 147:3-4 NLT
He heals the brokenhearted
and bandages their wounds.
He counts the stars
and calls them all by name.
Does it get any more personal than this? God is most definitely paying attention to me. Everyone at some point in life experiences a broken heart and devastating disappointment, and God himself lends himself to personally assist and comfort with his presence, his Word, and his timing. The one who keeps track of inanimate objects in the sky surely notices spiritual humans.
Adam and Eve had many children together, probably the human’s limit for personal attention and care for other individuals. I used to be an elementary school teacher and could loving give personal care and attention for 30 first graders per year. But it was for only 6 hours a day and not on weekends. But the stars are numerous, people are numerous, and God doesn’t forget, leave out, or neglect a single one. This is God whom Believers celebrate. The One, True, Living God doesn’t just look down on what we’re doing, he interacts with his personal care and attention.
I know first hand of your personal care and attention towards me. I have never been disappointed for putting all of my hope and trust in you. You always fill the holes in my heart when I am devastatingly disappointed, and I just can’t thank you enough. I love you and pray in your Son’s name, amen.
