Your Burdens Roll Away

by Denise Boggs
“Commit your ways to the Lord (roll and repose each care of your load on Him); trust (lean on, rely on and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.”  Psalm 37:5 Amp You have probably found, as I have, that every problem has a weight to it, and some are heavier than others.  If you have committed your ways unto the Lord and are trusting in Him to work things out, then you must release the heavy weight and not take it back again.   Do not worry about it; trust Him.  This does not […]

What is Perfect Love?

by Denise Boggs
“Perfect love casts out all fear, for fear hath torment. And he that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1 John 4:18 We are born with a need for love and fear is waiting at the door when we don’t receive it.  The first time we are touched and held as an infant, the need for love is met, but only for a moment.  As an infant, the ability to hold on to love has not been established.  The ability to hold on when someone says they are holding you is what we call “trust”. Just as […]

God Uses Broken Things

by Denise Boggs
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” Psalm 51:17 We can look at Scripture and be assured that God uses all things, even the broken pieces of our lives.  He will carefully hold each piece in His hand until just the right time, and then He uses it for good to help someone else.  After we have been healed of painful hurts and then repent for our own sinful responses, our testimony of God’s redemption is complete. Before repentance, we tend to blame others or live in denial, […]

He Heals the Broken Hearted

by Denise Boggs
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3 Connecting with people is sometimes very difficult to do.  And how heartbreaking it is when – for whatever reason – we can’t seem to connect even with those who are closest to us. If you have been hurt in a relationship, you may be guarding your heart and fearful of being hurt again. It is very hard and even impossible to connect when you can’t lay your guard down and open your heart. Trust God to heal your heart that has been wounded or betrayed and is now broken.  […]

Learning to Trust Again

by Denise Boggs
“He heals the brokenhearted and bindeth up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 God has made full provision for healing the pain of past so you can trust again. Have you ever trusted someone to love you that did not know how to love?  Or have you ever loved someone that did not know how to receive your love? In both cases you will experience rejection. This type of rejection is very painful especially when it comes from someone whom you really trust. The pain from being hurt by someone you trust is much greater than being hurt by a casual friend.  […]
