A Bruised Reed

A bruised Reed He will not break and a smoldering wick He will not quench until He brings forth justice to victory. Matthew 12:20


Just last week another house in our neighborhood was condemned and demolished. The house had the unfortunate problem of being too close to a storm sewer project gone awry. All the digging, rock breaking and steam rolling weakened it’s foundation. Once decided on the removal of 60 years of family dinners, children playing, and Christmas celebrations took just a few days. 

Around us every day are people just like that little home. Their biggest dreams and most careful plans are often undermined by someone else’s important project. Happy memories fade in the face of dark reality. They teeter just at the edge of life’s cliff. But the King who came to heal wounds and shine in darkness has put us right next to them. He has lit the fire of hope in our lives and by His wounds we have a healing message to share! Whether we wish to be in the demolition or construction business is a choice God is leaving up to us every day! What will you do for the Master builder today?

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
