On that day, God promises to collect the strays, gather the scattered; all the dreams that were banished, returned; all the friendships that were lost, reunited. The bits of you that were left behind due to your brokenness or due to harm done to you will be gathered back into your soul. The whole of you that God dreamt you to be will be collected and united and you will walk in the joy of being re-membered. Hang on to this hope.
If you’ve ever had a sprained ankle, you know how difficult it is to carry on a normal life without pain or inconvenience. God promises to rescue the lame. The parts of your life that are “sprained” will be made whole. Praise the Lord! Debby
Boy, this is a good word for us today. God has a plan to remove all that afflicts us, all that burdens us, all that we carry on our bent back. But, today, we must carry it; and we carry it with the strength that hope provides. Hang it there, the calvary is coming. Walk forward in hope. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. Amen.
Sorry, this is two minutes, instead of one, but worth it. God knows our sorrow for what is lost or missing and promises restoration and solace, if we let it happen. Will you?
Another thought on God’s quiet love over you from Zephaniah 3. Today, be still and quiet with your Lord, enjoy each other’s company.
