Today marks a new day. An understanding of where this day will take you is deeply connected to where you have been. It is God who has brought you here, and it is God who will take you through this day and this season of life. Your story is God’s favorite to write. It is the story of how He binds up the wounds of the broken-hearted, how He brings them to Himself to be made new, and how He then releases them with a renewed sense of purpose, strength, anticipation, and hope.
“Oh my soul, bless God.”
From head to toe, I’ll bless His holy name!
Oh my soul, bless God,
Don’t forget a single blessing
He forgives your sins – every one.
He heals your diseases – every one.
He redeems you from hell – saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy – a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness – beauty eternal.
He renews your youth – you’re always young in His presence.
God brought you here from the hollow, the pit. You have been honest about your pain and open to God’s hand. In the midst of strife and brokenness, God’s plan for renewal was taking form. He met you in your time of need. He spent time with you there, and to your open heart he offered His love that was clothed in forgiveness, redemption and renewal.
God’s redemption became alive in you. Grace was embraced and a new heart was being formed in you. God redeemed your life and set you back on the path where once again, you are free to pursue the God given desires of your heart. Purpose, strength, and hope have returned, and you look to the future with a new vision for what life can become.
God forgives, God redeems, and God renews!
