Strength of Heart

My little girl is 14.  Do you remember when you were 14?  So much excitement, so much emotion, so much to look forward to…  As a mom I’m excited for her and a little scared.  I fear mostly for her heart.  A broken heart seeps into every area of life.  How can I prepare her for the inevitable?

I read a verse in the Bible today that seems to light the way:

“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.”  ( Psalm 73:26) Discover God Study Bible.

My heart has been broken more times than I can count.  Boys, shattered dreams, friendships gone wrong, friends going to their Heavenly home…so many ways to break a heart…  But unlike Humpty Dumpty, the broken pieces can be put together again by the One who shaped each fragment and holds it in His Hands.

Teach her to give her heart to God, first and without reservation.  He will be her heart’s strength no matter what life may bring…and along the way, let’s remind ourselves to keep doing the same!!
