Recently I’ve reflected a bit on the duality of an infinitely, purely good God and the insidious, sneaky evil that simultaneously exist.
Innocent battered about.
Yet all can be redeemed and transformed into beauty beyond any ability to imagine ourselves.
In the hands of God we all exist.
In His presence we one day will stand – nothing to hide behind.
Will I find Him guilty?
Or will I be breathless at His feet having witnessed He who will have made all things perfectly right, bringing full justice to completion and I will be near drowning in my own tears of wonder and relief that He has not held MY guilt against me because Jesus’ blood has satisfied the wrath I caused and deserved to be punished for?!
praying hearts open to God’s healing touch
begging miracles open the arms guarding pain
so God-with-us miracles triumph over the enemy’s intent
for isolation and permanent insecurity and destruction
replacing with permanent freedom and thriving community
pleading God to breathe, to blow freedom
into crippled souls resurrection purposes
oh God our damaged souls all need You
have mercy to reverse the damage in hurting children
bringing beauty from ashes of children’s despair
their innocence turned to ash by evil and carelessness
yet a measure of innocence restored by Your healing touch
Your eyes of love seeing their inner being and reaching it
igniting their inner being with radiant hope for a future of Your remaking
a future that testifies to Your tender goodness and unmatchable transformation
