    Amazing
  • Brianna for verse 3
    Broken in heart broken hearted, to me denotes a deep void of depression or sadness. Even from our lowest point Jehovah can heal mend us and bring us back to a good relationship with him. This scripture highlights how deeply Jehovah God cares for us. When it states he heals our wounds, I think of a Father who tenderly taking care of the cuts and bruises on his child. This scripture draws me closer to my heavenly father knowing he cares so deeply for his creation.

    I WILL JUST LIKE TO SAY IT IS A BLESSING TO BE BLESSED BY GOD TO EVEN HAVE CHILDREN, I HAVE JUST WENT THROUGH A IVF PROCEDURE IN AUGUST AND I HAD 15 EGGS THAT FERTILIZED THAT IS A TRUE BLESSING FROM GOD. I WENT FROM NEVER FERTILIZING NONE TO 15. THAT 'S A BIG DIFFERENCE. I HAD ONE OF MY EMBRYO 'S TRANSFERED IN MY WOMB ON 10 09 14. AND FROM THAT DAY I CLAIMED MY VICTORY AND MADE MY DECLARATION THAT MY FRUIT SHALL REMAIN IN JESUS NAME. I DO BELIEVE IT IN MY HEART THAT IT WILL REMAIN.
