Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7 NLT
God uses circumstances to draw us closer to the presence of His greatness. He allows us to recognize the power of His love. He helps us discover why we need Him and see what happens when we choose to TRUST.
God reminds us we don't have to handle life on our own. He knows the source of all weakness. He sees inside the empty spaces of our hearts and helps us cope with hope. He opens our eyes and fully restores our souls. He helps us welcome thankfulness.
The Bible says, “I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord” Jeremiah 30:17. NIV. God knows how to heal physical pain and bandage emotional sores. When we’re pushed to the limit, He fixes what is broken and helps us let go of doubt.
God blesses our faithfulness. He shows happens when when surrender anxious thoughts. He helps us see what HE sees in us. “The more we let God take over, the more truly ourselves we will become.”
We will experience the JOY of Jesus as we step in fullness of His love. Then, we will understand how it feels to truly welcome the PEACE of a grateful heart. ♥
Dear God, thank you for loving us through every moment. We will find strength in the love of Your faithfulness and welcome ALL You provide. Thank you for restoring our souls and helping us focus on the gifts of Your greatness. Thank you for the PEACE of a grateful heart. It sets the stage for good to come. Thank you, Lord! Amen
