Promise for Today: The Nearness of God
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18 NIV
A bruised reed…
You’ve been there, haven’t you?
No longer bending in the breeze,
you think, beyond repair.
A smoldering wick, flickering…
dreams quickly evaporating,
and you’re wondering, searching, asking…
“Is there hope?”
Always has, always will.
He is close…
as near as your heart.
You may be down,
but you’re not out.
God still has plans for you.
His promises are tried…and true.
