"Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." ~ Isaiah 43:18-19
I love when you pray for a direct Word from the Lord and He gives it. I prayed for the Lord to encourage me and guide me in His Word. I asked that He would speak to my heart. He is so tender and amazing.
He really does bend down and whisper things to us. He gently shows us, guides us,and shares with us what we need right when we need it.
With our past year (actually...years) my husband and I, well even our children, have had major growing pains. We have felt like silly putty that has been stretched as far as it can go. We have wounds but the Lord is healing them. We have scars but once again the Lord has put His healing balm on them too. We have memories good and bad branded in our minds, hearts, and soul.
My husband and I even though are no longer "Pastoring" have had a hard time letting go of what could have been, what was, and why did it go like this?! This morning the Lord really showered me with encouragement.
I copied these verses down on a index card and I shared them with my husband. I am thankful for the former and old things. But I believe the Lord is doing a NEW thing in our lives and even though we may face the wilderness or a desert He will be ever present. I am so VERY thankful.
Have you been uplifted by the Word this week? What is the Lord speaking to you about? PLEASE share with me. I believe when we share these things we are being Salt and Light to each other.
Blessing today friends!!!
