God doesn’t want us to sit in the ashes of the past; He wants to trade our brokenness for healing. He wants to give us beauty for our ashes. The key is that we have to be willing to give up the ashes in order to receive the beauty. Are you willing to trust Him with your past hurts? Don’t waste another day sitting in the ashes. Let God give you joy instead of mourning, and let Him make something beautiful out of the ashes of your life today!
Your Holy Word fills my soul; as I open it’s pages and find Your life within. Page after page, turn after turn, verse after verse and prayer after prayer, You fill me with the richness and goodness of Your truth. As I delve deeply into Your gift to me, Your word; I find encouragement, inspiration, conviction, deliverance, peace, compassion, understanding, guidance and identity. How blessed I am that You have allowed for Your word to be found on this earth- Your living, life-breathing word; Your road-map for our lives, Your manual for our thoughts, Your script for our actions. As I find completion and confirmation in your word; the accounts of Your greatness, the fruits of Your spirit, the love of Your sacrifice and the patience of Your heart for me - are magnified.. Just as the rose grows from within the softened soil; so Your word is growing, sprouting and rooting itself deeply within my heart, daily. May I forever water the garden within my heart; by remaining and dwelling in Your presence, and drinking from Your cup daily. Thank you for the gift and blessing of Your Holy Word, Father. It is the manual for which You designed me to live by, and without it, I would not remain assembled in You, always.
