Everyday Promises – 344

Nor is his ear to dull to hear

Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. Isaiah 59:1 NIV

My marriage was irreparable and I was disillusioned, hurting and feeling guilty for my part in the problems. I was fairly sure that God did not care about my life. I had moved out of the family home and felt that I was beyond his blessing. I thought to myself one morning that God would not want me to teach for him anymore and I would totally understand his decision. I was planning to move back to my Mum’s. I decided to apply for employment in the state system and walk away from my love of Christian service. About a week after these reflections, I had to attend Principal’s meetings. While there an Education Director approached me and after some small talk asked if I would teach at a school about 10 mins drive from my Mum’s home. I was astonished to say the least, as I had told no one of my plans or thoughts. Yet God was in the process of proving that despite my current circumstances he loved me, he would work for me, and he heard even the thoughts I did not dare to whisper. Our God is a God of compassion and infinite love. He cannot shield us from all the troubles of this world, but he is there right beside us. He is ever leaning over us in compassion when our hearts are crushed, and difficulties surround us. You are precious to him dear reader. Take to him everything that troubles your soul for he will never turn you away.
