Of this I am CERTAIN.
When God is the one writing your story it NEVER ends with ashes.
The author of CREATION is in the business of restoring the wreckage and all that's broken into something beautiful.
He makes ALL things new.
In the beginning was......GOD. He is the Alpha and Omega. The beginning........and the end. But how quickly we forget that means --- He's the *in between* too. ...in all the details. He knew where we came from. Where we are headed. And how we are going to get there. Do you TRUST Him?????? Be still......and KNOW......He is God. (In ALL of it.)
"Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs." Jonah 2:8 Jonah said it. The prodigal sonlived it. ...........He gave up the grace that was
in his hands to chase after something else he thought would bring him
satisfaction. He was restless and striving for something MORE when
everything he needed he HAD already. The prodigal's brother took for
granted the grace that was his when all along --- everything he needed
was his already! he never left that place of security, provision and
If we stay connected to the source of grace and
CLING to grace and mercy.... CLING to the good things our Father has for
us we will stay in a constant flow of blessings. But if we walk
away??!?!?......we will have cut off that very Life source that was ours
all along. And if we aren't careful...take for granted the blessings
and favor that are ours everyday......
