Isaiah 61:3 says,
“to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
It is beautiful how God says He can give you beauty for ashes. Wholeness for your brokenness. It is never too late for God to work in your life. You are never too destroyed for God to make you a new creation through Christ. He begins his work in your life when you say it is your end. Give Him your ashes, he will turn it into beauty. Trust him when the devil whispers in your ears to look at the wind in your life. You are walking on water don’t drown looking at the wind. You are walking in a miracle when you walk with Jesus.
This is my testimony,
I took the wrong road once or twice when life got rough. When my faith was tested through fire. I became one of those girls that lived for myself, used my appearances to get things done on my own and lived to be served. The world taught me how to gain, be served, be smart, cut off people, hurt people and judge others. For some months, I told myself that God didn’t exist to keep doing the wrong things. Sin became all I knew and darkness was where I lived. I gave up on God for so long but he didn’t. He called me out by my name from the darkness I was in. Jesus is light. He loved me for me, not for who I pretended to be. His love is pure, unconditional and amazing. He gave me another chance, he saw my heart when others saw my face, mistakes, and words. God still called me and put me on the right path. Jesus taught me how to serve, gain wisdom, help others, forgive and love those who hate me. What I write now is not what I use to write before. Writing for the glory of God is my gift. I have lived my life outlaw and now I am living for Christ. I want to share the peace, rest, and joy that I found through Christ. I want to please God in everything I do. In my studies, my work, my home, my writings, my body, my beauty, my relationship, my friendships, the way I dress and the way I live my life. Seek his face in everything I do. Seek his face every day and night. I didn’t just add Jesus in my life I submitted and rededicated my life to him. He took what I called ugly and turned it into beautiful. He healed my wounds, he gave me hope, he saved my soul from the devil, he gave me more than I prayed for and he gave me a purpose to live for. His Grace and Mercy keeps me alive. His love made me love. I am forgiven so I forgive. I am loved so I love. I am his and he is mine (Isaiah 43:1).
I am not here in this world to show my body or the way I look to impress others. I am not who you think I am, not who you say I am and not who you want me to be. I am who God says I am. To help others give a little push to the truth and to impress the world has a totally different meaning. I want to make a difference in people heart than show off to the world what I got. I would rather make a difference in one person life and bring them to Jesus than to be famous and impress billion people. Writing day and night knowing I will touch someone heart keeps me going. Planting a seed in people heart with the words God puts in my heart. Glorifying him in everything I do. That is worth living for, that is what I call life. Being able to show the light to someone that has been in darkness for so long. The world can satisfy your flesh for a day but you are going to want more and more. All my life I heard people telling me what I can’t-do but I rather chose the word of God and hide his words in my heart (Psalm 119:11). No matter how many people are against me God was with me and that is all that matters for me. Having God beside me is so much than having all the people in this world supporting me (Psalm 118:7-9). I remember when I was just a little girl I used to pray daily for God to give me wisdom and for God to make me strong. He heard my prayer, I went to a lot of struggle. He tested me through fire. But through it all he was with me he never has forsaken me (Isaiah 43 1-3). I write what I write because I know how good my Father is. God showed me in action how he loved me (Romans 5:8). How I have a faithful Father. I am thankful for everything I have in my life. My beautiful home, my family, my health, my eyes, my legs just everything. Thank you for providing for me and my family. For always giving me what I need when I ask for what I want. I am thankful for the things I don’t have; God ways are greater than mine. My future is in God’s hand. God let your will be done in my life, not mine. Lord, keep me in your will so I won’t be in your way. There is a joy in my heart that I can’t explain. I have rest, I have happiness and I am grateful every day. He is still working in me. I no longer live in fear and depression. I am whole, loved, I am worthy, I am beautiful and I have a purpose to wake up every morning. If you been through hardships and Jesus came through, you know what I am writing about. I am living for God. He changed my lifestyle. Jesus is Lord.
If you are going through rough time, just humble yourself before God and ask him for his help. You can’t win on your own. He will build your broken family, friendship, your heart and your marriage. He is not a mean and angry God, he loves you so much. You are never alone in this world even when you feel alone you are not. He will never forsake you. He will guide you, give you strength, he will love you no matter what. He will turn your pain into your purpose. You are never a victim but victorious with God with you (Joshua 1:9). Invite Jesus into your life and see your life turn around for your own Good (Romans 8:28). No matter in what situation you are in God can still raise you up & Do great things in you & Through you! Focus on God, not your circumstance. Focus on how big your God is not how big your problem is. Focus on his love, not on the people that caused pain in your life. Focus on God words, he said he will never forsake you. Stop focusing on people that walked out of your life. Focus on how God is going to restore you not on the things that destroyed. God is so big then you can imagine. He is bigger than the giants you are facing in your life. His love is deep and not understood intellectually. God is good no matter our circumstances. Greater and mighty than we can imagine. He is never busy for you. He is only on prayer away. He loves us so much. God is love, Go and have a personal relationship with God. He knows you
Invite Jesus In your life
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
