The hopes we've lost, the dreams that died, the visions of life and love that are no more...
"I know that my Redeemer lives"
But when we surrender the past - with all its joys and sorrows, wins and losses, all the remorse and regrets - and leave it at the nail-pierced feet of the Savior, He has a way of bringing beauty from ashes, purpose from the pain, and life from the dead.
"Son of man, can these bones live?"
The One who conquered death itself can still raise the dead things in us - like hope, faith, peace, and the ability to trust Him and smile at the future. We follow a risen Savior, He who was dead but is now alive - and He wants to breathe life on the dry bones and dry valleys of our hearts.
"Surely, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live!"
Friend, God is not done with you... Your best days are ahead of you, His mercy and goodness are following right behind you, and Jesus wants to shine His love and light through you to a dying world that desperately needs Him... Will you let Him?
“Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ, and go out into the irresistible future with Him.” ~ Oswald Chambers
Amen! Let's leave the past behind, and step into the future God has for us.
Love and blessings to you in our wonderful Savior,
