This morning a dear friend shared a verse with me. It really struck a chord in me so I thought I would pass it along to you as well.
1 "Come, let us return to the LORD.
He has torn us to pieces
but he will heal us;
he has injured us
but he will bind up our wounds.
2 After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will restore us,
that we may live in his presence.
3 Let us acknowledge the LORD;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth."
He will appear... He will come to us. He will heal us. He will bind up our wounds. He will revive us, restore us! Hallelujah!!!
Sometimes I forget that the enemy's hold on me is nothing like the hold that my God has on me. I am so thankful for a God who forgives, who loves, who cherishes, who heals and who wants nothing more than for me to give Him my life. It's funny, I always found myself so afraid to let go and give up control over my life, scared of where it may lead me... Turns out life becomes a lot more fruitful and blessed when you let go and give the control to God.
God walks beside me, He lives inside of me. And so I sing Hallelujah!
