Standing at my pulpit

I know I already did a Sunday song for the week, and I try not to preach. However, I have to say something that I truly believe. It is something that helps fuel my faith. I actually feel quite moved to say it.

God restores our lives and years of wasted time and effort--no matter whose fault it was and no matter the situation. (Face it, we are our own worst enemy at times.)

God controls everything. We need only open our eyes to it all and allow Him to do His work. We just need to believe that He is able.

I tend to feel trapped inside of self-loathing because of my past and what my decisions have done to my life.

I'm not believing that lie anymore...I choose not to. God will restore EVERYTHING--beyond any expectations I could ever have.

Joel 2:25
"I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm [a]—my great army that I sent among you.

Think about how a car is restored. Sometimes new and improved parts are used, sometimes valuable pieces are found to complete the restoration. Other times, old pieces are shined up like new and that nice new coat of paint is applied to make the car look like new...sometimes better than new and most importantly, better than the rusty heap it once was, battered by use and full of dings.

Great thought for today and everyday actually.

It was weird. I was watching something that expressed similar thoughts and I just felt compelled to write it.
