Sunday Devotional – Breakthroughs

“Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds  for mankind,
for he breaks down gates of bronze
and cuts through bars of iron.” – Psalm 107:15-16 (NIV)

As a writer, there are days when the story gets stuck, when finding words is like fishing in oatmeal, when our own doubts become a bully holding us under the water as we choke and gasp for air. What a gift it is to run to Jesus, to know that He has the power to free us and give us the breakthroughs we need.

Lord, we need Your breakthroughs. Break down the bars of iron that hold us captive, whether in relationships with You, others, our work, or ourselves. Free us by Your love. Amen.

    Sharon, thank you for this scripture. It is so powerful! I shared it on my FB page and also emailed it to a friend of mine. We need to be reminded of God’s might sometimes. I love your books, keep on writing and keep on encouraging us. God bless you!

    Thank you, Sharon! I so enjoy your uplifting spec. fiction and your sentiments here. Our pastor this last weekend had a similar message. It’s so cool how God will continue to bring forward the same loving words, many times from different places and through different people, all to get our attention! I don’t know about other writers, but I think I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to those ‘bars’ of discouragement. God be praised! He can burst through them all! Thank you again for the reminder, Sharon:) May you and all of the other writers here be blessed. Mollie
