God speaks through his word that he takes away our sins and gives us beauty for ashes. It might be a little confusing how someone we can not see loves us so much. God knew we would make mistakes in life and offers us a better way. The Bible not only has stories of other lives, but hope, promises, grace, mercy and the list goes on. Heaven is the goal for each of us. Let the sun shine comes in your heart today and count some blessings.
Isaiah 61:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
The Year of the Lord’s Favor
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion--
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
I find these words great, "I BELIEVE IN YOU".
I find these words great, "I TRUST YOU"
I find these words great, "YOU ARE FORGIVEN"
God has a way out of the our mess ups of life and give us joy, praise and right thinking. Our minds can not forgive ourselves at times of life, but one day God comes in to restore a broken heart and despair goes away. Let us not forget that change is a process. My joy is refreshed every day of my life because I know how forgave me and who is there for me. I have many broken places I could talk about or I can talk bout the greatest of life after sin.
I feel God speaking these words to you today, "I BELIEVE IN YOU SO BELIEVE IN ME" God is a restorer of all things and new beginnings happen each day of our lives. Just like the sky changes, the seasons change and our lives change. We can find that good in one day if we choose to. I know even on my worse day of life, there was good to be found. It's not a game of hide and seek, it's real life with real promises from the word of God. A book that holds truth of our lives can go this day.
GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
