God is Moving Us
He is good. "He is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit"-Psalms 34:18
He has given me some amazing verses in some strange places.
Zephaniah 3:9 "Then will I purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the Lord and serve him shoulder to shoulder." Oh, we will serve him shoulder to shoulder again. Brothers and Sisters in Christ who have been separated because of this trial we are in.
Zephaniah 3:17, 19 also says, "The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing...At that time I will deal with all who oppressed you; I will rescue the lame and gather those who have been scattered. I will give them praise and honor in every land where they were put to shame. At that time I will gather you, at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes."
Lord, you will do it! I will watch you restore our fortunes before our very eyes. Our shame is cast down. You honor us and lift us up, because of your great love and mercy.
There will be healing and restoration like we have never seen before. Oh Your ways! They are too much for us. We praise You!
I believe God is giving me a new ministry. A ministry I would have never anticipated. I have a burning in my soul and I know it is from the Lord. I am working out the details with Him, as so I do not compromise my family members and those I love. Their stories are theirs to tell. He will make a way if it is His Will.
Oh, how He loves you and me. The consequences of what has happened will never be over in this lifetime, but God will use them undoubtedly for His glory, just like we prayed. I will share more as I feel led.
Thank you for your prayers, your support, your emails of encouragement, and even more important your stories. I treasure them and think of them often and I pray for you as well.
Isn't that what this is all about? Relationships? Encouragement? This is why I started this blog. Where He leads me I will go.
Jesus REALLY is at the helm. We are almost over to the unknown shore. When we get there, it will be hard, but He has already been over there and He has prepared us for it.
