God Helps Us When We Have A Crushed Spirit

Last night, I was watching the Olympic trials. In one race, an athlete got tangled up with other runners; fell. She got back up ran a little farther and dropped to her knees. She did that three times before finally crossing the finish line. Then, fell to her knees a final time. That young lady had a crushed spirit.
I’ve been there. There have been times in the race called life that I’ve dropped to my knees. Others have as well. What causes this?
It could be loss of a job. It could be sickness. It could be death. It could be disappointment. It could be that life just hasn’t turned out like you thought it would.
The Psalmist understood hurt. He said, “The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit” (Psalms 18:14)?
A crushed spirit is tough. It can lead to depression. It can lead to drug or alcohol addiction.
If you have a crushed spirit, God will help you pick up the pieces. It may take a while but God will help U.
