“He Restores My Soul”

He Restores My Soul

by Dona Hake

Jesus told us that in this world there would be trouble.  I am quite amazed when people try to live in an ideal place that pain and trouble should never cross their path.   Even as we are under the tender, loving and faithful care of our Shepherd, there will be times in which our soul needs restored.

I love how The Message translation brings to light “He restores my soul.”

Psalm 23:3 (The Message)

True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

There are times in life in which we have all experienced one thing hitting us right after the other.  Many times you can become weary in battle and you feel that there is no rest.  Sometimes life can feel like ocean waves knocking you down one right after the other.  You just know that if you are  able to stand long enough you will be able  catch your breath again.  Sometimes life can make us feel this way.

Let us take hold of the truth that He is able to lift us back up no matter how long we have been down.  His tender touch is able to wipe away the tears from our hurt, pain and sorrow.  He is able to renew to us the strength we have seemed to have lost as our soul has grown weary.  No matter what we have walked through and whether anyone understands, it matters not.  Jesus understands any and all things we have walked through and He will restore our souls as we ask Him to.

If your heart is weary and aching from pain, just ask Him.  He is faithful and loving and ever ready to touch those that look to Him for true restoration!
