Job 23:10 and Matt 12:20 "Bruised Reeds" (January 17)

My God isn't going to let me break.
Matt 12:20 "a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench"


  1. Are any of you going to the SSMT? I cannot remember if I registered so I'm waiting to hear if I did. I think yes, but maybe not. I can take these cancer meds for the rest of my life but there is a tradeoff. Two of my friends recently went off the meds after 5 years and both now have their second cancer diagnosis. I believe I'll stay on it but it does a number to my memory. I'm a bruised reed within and without and He is a Good God writing His Story. There's so much more than what we can see. My Love to you all. So, who is going to the SSMT?

  2. "But he knows the way that I take" really spoke to me today. There are so many times when I just don't know, but He does. I am reminded again this morning, that I don't always have to find the path, figure out the way, know the directions...I need to hear the whisper behind me saying, "This is the way walk in it" (Isa. 30:21). I am bruised, but will not break. Thanks be to God.

  3. Where are all of our peeps?

    Annette? Praying for that baby soon to appear...

    Jan? I am missing you! Are you snowed in???

    It is so good to come here and read today's passages and share our thoughts.

    Any of you who may be new here, or shy, please leave a comment if you want to join in! We are all just tickled to find a welcome place to share our love for our Lord. None of us have "arrived." We are walking by faith and opening our ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to us today. His Word is a delight. It speaks to each one of us in a different and perfect way.

    Come on! If you want to leave a are sure welcome to jump in anytime.


  4. Bev, I won't be in Houston for the SSMT. I know it will be a treat for all who get to go. I've enjoyed the scripture I memorized this past year and God has been good to bring them to my heart and mind often. I need to really fill my heart with His Word. I AM A NEEDY GIRL when it comes to getting up every day to face the challenges that lie ahead. I just need Jesus. All the time.

    I will be thinking and praying for all of you that get to go to the event...

  5. Nise', I am with you.

    I am bruised but will not break. Thanks be to God!
