Barren field will sprout trees,
The deaf and blind will hear and see,
The dead will raise and begin to breathe—
From all iniquity.
The earth will grown in pain to see
The sons of God declare to be
His full and glorious family;
The beautiful, perfect bride of Thee.
"It is not, then, that God becomes sharing; being triune, God is a sharing God, a God who loves to include. Indeed, that is why God will go on to create. His love is not for keeping but for spreading." Michael Reeves, thoughts from Richard of St. Victor

You, my friends, are called ‘beloved,’ objects of love from the Father as to his Son. This is not something you attain any more than the life you possess. It is yours simply by the goodness of grace tethered to Jesus. #identity #bethelu #panel #fbf
Broken pieces actin’ like we ain’t cracked / Man we all messed up and can’t no one escape that.
We some broken people / Came from broken homes / Broken hearts inside of a broken soul.
Alcoholics, the addicts / English, African, Arabs / Ain’t no riches to fix it / You still broke when you have it.
If you ain’t breakin’ bad and you still chasin’ the habit / It ain’t no wonderland so we still chasing the rabbit.
Ain’t a soul on the planet / That’s better than another / And we all need grace in the face of each other.
"But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells." 2 Peter 3:13
"So as you’re living and ministering in this broken world, what does God call you to do? There’s one sure and reliable answer to the question: he calls you to seize every opportunity to be an instrument of his love." Paul Tripp #remember #dontforget #latergram
All the pieces on the ground;
I shattered all the dreams
I thought I found,
And You put me back together.
I need Your grace for my flaws;
God I’m broken in this mess I’ve made;
I need You to restore me.
"Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, BECAUSE CHRIST JESUS HAS MADE ME HIS OWN." Philippians 3:12 #goodfight #beautifulfeet #slaveofrighteousness #identity
