Bruised Reed Blog

"A bruised reed He will not break (off) and a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish (He will not harm those who are weak and suffering); He will faithfully bring forth justice.

- Isaiah 42:3

The Bruised Reed is inspired by the hope God has instilled in us through various trials and triumphs.  A bruised reed He does not break; instead, God gently holds us in our brokenness until we are strong again.

Our daughter's special needs taught our family what it meant to be totally dependent on God to get us through.  From daily decision-making to the final moments of her last breath.  

Every day there will be challenges.  Guaranteed.  Our approach to those challenges, however, shape our future.  May you be encouraged to walk with God and if you have no idea what that means, may you have the courage to find out.

May your cup be filled.
