God Will Not Walk Away From Us!

“Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs.” ~~ Isaiah 61:7 

Maybe you have turned and walked away from God in anger and disappointment and tossed away the calling God had on your life. Maybe you felt the the Lord had hurt your feelings, so you left your faith to find a fresh path.

Where you were physically exhausted. Emotional turmoil began to disintegrate your life. Your immature faith lacked the stamina to hold to God tightly. So, maybe for years you wandered through sin, divorce, and miserable meanderings of your own making, whatever it may have been. It was a time of spiritual drought—the years of shame.

Although you may have walked away from God, He did not walk away from you. The Lord will allow you to experience life in the wilderness of doubt, but He will be right there watching over you and waiting for you to return to the call He placed on your life.

Eventually, if you allow yourself to feel His presence in your life. Little by little, the Lord Jesus  will woo you back to Him. And you will feel Him whisper to your spirit, “Let’s start over and do it right this time.” At times like this begin dray close to Him and to study the Bible and allow it to change your damaged spiritual heart. This time don’t let it be head knowledge, but heart knowledge.   

And your faith will get back on track, and even though you do not think God’s calling for you could ever be restored. Thinking you traveled too far off the godly path? Surely, God didn’t want me anymore in service to His Kingdom. Surely, He had more qualified people that could  fulfill His calling.

However, that is not how God thinks at all. The Bible says, “For God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable (Romans 11:29). The Lord desires for us to move beyond the shame of past mistakes and into His calling for our lives. He will restore us to useful service in the Kingdom. It takes time and it is a process, but the Almighty God still has a plan for each of our lives. He intends to replace disgrace with rejoicing, so that we may show our world that we are living miracles.

Do I hear an “Amen”?

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
