It’s funny, after looking back on some of my old journal/blog entries from April and May of last year i realized something; i thought i knew what God was telling me then…i found out i was half right, but He was teaching me and preparing me for so much more than i ever could have imagined then. May of last year was a horrible month that i cringe at thinking back on, but i grew spiritually during that time. Thank you Jesus for the painful times, because that’s when my walls and defenses come undone and i finally see you, i am drawn to you, and then i become who you created me to be…i become more like You. You make all things new.
Our God makes all things new. He makes all things beautiful in it’s time. I love that. He can take the most horrible situations and the most painful things, and bring His redemptive touch to it and it’s new and beautiful again. Our God is lovely and i’m continuously in awe of Him.
Revelation 21:5 “Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
New and Beautiful, your redemption makes me new –
God makes all things beautiful in it’s time. Oh God make me beautiful in your eyes. Through all life’s trials and wounds, through all the storms and lightning strikes. And through every drop of blood and every tear, and every scar, make your perfect light shine through, and make my cut and bruised heart new. For it is in your eyes i long to dwell, in your presence i make my home, so please dear Jesus make me a beautiful heart and bring your light to shine out the filth and dirt. I am broken, Father. I am lying filthy in the mud. But you pick me up and dance with me. You give me new garments and wash me clean, you make me feel beautiful again.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time.”
Isaiah 61:10 “I will be full of joy in the Lord, my soul will be glad in my God; for he has put on me the clothing of salvation, covering me with the robe of righteousness, as the husband puts on a fair head-dress, and the bride makes herself beautiful with jewels.”
Zechariah 3:4 “And he spoke and said unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from off him. And unto him he said, See, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I clothe thee with festival-robes.”
