In Ruins No More

'I will build you up again, and you Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt. Again you will take up your timbrels and go out to dance with the joyful.' Jeremiah 31:4

Life is a funny thing.
One day our life can be full of sunshine with birds chirping happily as walk by, and the next day things can completely turn upside down.

But has it ever turned so upside down that you feel you'll stay that way forever?

Some situations can definitely feel that way. Where everything is so grim and dark and the possibility of things being right again seem non-existant.
But it is that way when we hope on the emotions of our boss changing towards their decisions. It will be a grim outlook when we solely hope on the possibility of the world's medicine made by men or on the thin string a marriage is holding on to.

But it doesn't have to be that way! It absolutely doesn't have to be a grim outcome anymore since God sent His son to break us free from the darkness. He made it possible for us to trust in Him alone.
While people's emotions, thoughts, and decisions change, God NEVER changes.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Throughout His word we witness the same pattern of compassion, grace and forgiveness. He wants to lift us up from our darkest place and exalt us to dance with the joyful.

Friend, lift up your tear filled eyes. God wants to rebuild you and wipe your sins away, Virgin Israel. He desires to take you marriage and rebuild it. He wants to take your health and restore it. He wants to take your heart and heal it.

Oh Israel, look to the heavens where our Redeemer and God of wonders pours out His love on us each day!
