This chapter in Isaiah has come up several times this past week from a dear family member, and then today at church. And I was also able to talk about this with Haven this afternoon. It’s so amazing how her little mind soaks all this up….it’s such a different stage….to truly be able to disciple our children in Christ….it’s tough, yet a privilege and I know that God has equipped me.
Haven and I talked about darkness and how in the darkness, we get to shine b.c we have Jesus in our hearts. Some people don’t know Jesus. How our greatest significance is found in the darkness. I heard that today and it just stuck…where there is light, the darkness has to flee. The greater the darkness, the brigther You shine. It’s not us, it’s Him. It’s His grace, His love, His mercy, His kindness that leads to repentence. Godly sorrow. It’s very humbling….yet so needed and so freeing. Pouring it out to Him until it’s all out and your chains are gone…..
I’m so glad we are worth it to Him. I’m so grateful He pursues us and doesn’t let us go….I believe He will do what He says He will do.
Isaiah 60. Read it. Out loud….for your family.
