You have spent years gradually setting up the different facets of your journey; one step at a time we have been building your story together. There were times you took wrong turns or we made a detour. Often it didn’t look like you expected and sometimes you thought you were alone – but you never were.
For many it feels like endlessly waiting for it all to make sense, hoping for the mighty rushing wind, holding on for the glorious breakthrough. Yes – it seems like a long time coming.
Hand me afresh the parts of your life that don’t make sense to you; submit to me your story-so-far and watch what I am doing with it. Not one moment will be wasted; not one tear shed was missed by my watch and every year lost will be restored to you.
Soon, the crescendo of my victory will break through like never before and you will see the power of the picture I have been painting. You will stand strong and whole, and the majestic mosaic of your destiny in me will be clear for all to see.
It won’t be long now. At that perfect moment, one touch from me will bring it all together
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.Psalm 56:8 (NLT)
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 — my great army that I sent among you.Joel 2:25 (NIV)
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.Psalm 27:13 (NIV)
