You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good.
This old world word turned new and coming alive in me
By now we are walking deeper …deeper into Advent
lets keep walking shall we…
We fight hard when you do not see and understand
the blindness of not knowing causes us to fight relentlessly
Have you ever noticed that the people & things that try you the most are the very people and things that causes you to grow in patience the most if only you will choose to rest in the perfect test and choose peace?
That resting and choosing come only from a knowing
that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM
He works it all out so that we can stand to say and glorify His name
to proclaim “ ALL IS GRACE! “
ADVENT – the coming one who comes to make all that evil has slung at us into shining stars raising and praising the One who hung for us
Ann asks and will you join in answering as we continue week two
When have you seen God take what was torn and turn it into a gift?
What evils are you experiencing now that you need God to transform into something good?
In what areas of your life do you feel like you’re coming unraveled? What would it feel like to have your heavenly Father slip a robe of righteousness over your shoulders?
OH world that is spiraling down
I have see you throw some doozies
loss of loved ones…one right after another
a miscarriage of pain and dismay
ripping jobs from hands of both in the home in just a short time span
tearing close friendships away through misunderstanding and silence
drowning whole lives in flood
hospitalization for infection
and when all that hits in a 2 year time frame
its easy to think you have been forsaken and birthed for burden
until you see HIM lacing love and kindness and goodness
like a beautiful patch work quilt
laces of healthy baby boy born
of angel nurses who see need and act in kindness
rebuilding of life and friendships
hope restored and firm footing of Christ
How can we not think He can do it again
God weave your loving hands into the ring hand man
edge out mistrust and being gruff
and cause gentle encouragement to come in
perhaps I mirror ….will you change me too?
I will called those things that are not as though they were
tongues full of love live here
a band of arms safely holding
a grand standing together in knowing
we are for and never against
all inside the arms of HIM
who holds us and in that we understand
it will all work out for GOOD
that’s what He does
takes what is intended to tear us apart
and uses it to take us where we belong
deep inside His heart
