On my way into town I often take a shortcut through the countryside. On the south side of the road stood three trees, strong and proud, and oh so beautiful. The other day I drove past the property again and found this heartbreaking sight.

I had to pull over to the side of the road because my tears were obstructing my vision. This fallen tree reminded me of my own brokenness. It also reminded me that I am not alone in my pain. In Psalm 34:18, David wrote these words:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

I felt closer to God that day than I had in a long time. Perhaps He can help you navigate this season of your life as well.
