I woke up early and started my usual stretching routine that morning -- twisting and turning a bit so I’d be limber for the day.
During one of my stretches, I hit the floor and read from my little daily prayer calendar.
In it, there was a powerful message about maintaining good family relationships and a scripture reference to the phrase: “Repairer of the Breach” stuck with me throughout the week.
My calendar, “The Power of a Praying Parent,” based on the book by Stormie Omartian, said this: “God tells of all the wonderful things that will happen when we fast and pray. He says, ‘You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach’ (Isaiah 58:12).
"God wants us to restore unity, to maintain the family bonds in the Lord, and to leave a spiritual inheritance of solidarity that can last for generations.”
Looking up the word “breach,” on Dictionary.com, I found it to mean: “an infraction or violation, as of a law, trust, faith, or promise and a severance of friendly relations.”
If you’ve lived a few years relating to others on this planet, I’m guessing you know, just like me, exactly what a breach is.
