Are you falling apart?
And He is before all things and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1.17
…who [Jesus Christ] being the brightness of His glory [God’s] and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power…Hebrews 1.3
…and you are complete in Him [Jesus Christ], the Head of all principality and power [rule and authority]. Colossians 2.10
I promise to never pretend to know something unless I’ve walked through it. I do not want to be the person who says I know what you’re going through unless I’ve been through it too.
So, today’s title ARE YOU FALLING APART? Please know that I write from experience. Yes, I have fallen apart — numerous times.
A long time ago in a land not-so-far-away I had a major breakdown. I blamed it on PMS but in all reality it was me allowing the devil to have his way. No need to go into details because they are ugh-ly and ugly but suffice it to say – I was falling apart in a huge way.
PMS, I believe is the acronym for Powerful Move of Satan, because when I had it? All hell broke loose. Not proud, just being honest.
The day of the great falling apart I knew I was in trouble. I had slammed the door of my little sewing room and threw myself on the floor and cried out…
Father God, You have to do something with me and in me or I am going to do something I don’t want to do.
That day Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity came over me in the most comforting of ways. He loved me with an extraordinary grace I have never forgotten.
I was reminded that the God who holds all things together would hold me together IF I submit to Him and His Word. His Word became priority and I began to learn it and meditate on it.
God holds things together. All things.
I love the Hebrews scripture I reference above. Jesus upholds all things by the word of His power. The Word. The Word, Jesus Himself (see John 1) is like the superglue of me. Of you. Of anyone who has placed their trust in Him – and His Word is the catalyst holding us.
If and when you find yourself falling apart – call out to Him. He will hear you and He will send the Rescuer as in my case was the Holy Spirit.
Let Him hold you together!
