Thought to share: I know it feels like a mess. I know it looks wrecked. Unrepairable. Beyond fixing. But those are lies. Nothing is so dead that I can’t breathe life into it. Nothing is so ruined that I can’t give you beauty for those ashes. Nothing is beyond MY ability to restore. Give it to ME. Let ME own it and watch what I give you in return, for I make all things new.
Isaiah 61:3 (NLT) To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for His own glory.
Isaiah 43:19 (NLT) For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Revelation 21:5 (NLT) And the One sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then He said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”
