Joy and Peace in the Ashes of Disappointment

There is a peace and joy that falls like heavy snow over the dusty ashes and wet tears of disappointment. Although my heart feels broken and weary, I am leaning upon the arm of The One who calls me the apple of His eye.  The One who promises to never withhold any good thing.  The One who sovereignly ignited the flame to purify and call forth the light of true holiness.  My heart experiences His peace and joy settling heavy and deep, covering and bringing relief.  God's promises are real and true!

My weary heart finds rest upon the pillow of His redemptive perfect Love.  I must continually hold my heart still, so The Father's tender hands can wipe away the blinding dust of evil's lies from my eyes.  The Father longs for me to see with eyes of genuine faith.  His gentle voice calls me to shake the dust from my garments and stand. . . to stand tall and gaze back down the path I have travelled.   The Spirit says, Remember, my child! Remember my goodness!  Gaze back upon the towers of stone monuments marking your path.  I have and will always been faithful to you! Stand in awe and worship. It will all be worth it!
