One of my favorite things about God is how creates something out of nothing. Or something alive out of something entirely lifeless.
Blossoms from infertile soil.
Man from dirt.
What in your life do you sense is beyond repair?
Is it your marriage? A broken relationship? A friendship that left you burned?
A wound that’s just too deep? A loss that’s too great? Your ugly past? Your mistakes? Your own self? Your struggles, all the baggage that’s too heavy to ever drop in the dust and really leave behind?
Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
Today, I pray that we could leave that heavy baggage in the hands of our Savior, whose burden is light.
Sweep the ashes right to His feet.
Surrender the wasteland of our dried up lives, let it go to God, that He could pour out Himself, the spring of the Water of Life, onto the thirsty land. Turn and till it into fertile soil. Slowly, new life begins to grow. Soon, it blossoms. Thrives, even, in the light of the Son.
You must allow Him to do it. You must give up the past, the grudge, the anger, the resentment, the struggle, the hurt;
the thing that is death to your spirit, giving Him full permission to bring it to Life again. Make it lovely. Make it new.
Let’s let go and let Jesus. Together, ok?
