for your leaking, cracked soul

I want to chronicle for myself and encourage you with these precious, life-giving Words of Truth. —

“A great deal of land remains to be conquered.” — Josh 13:1 NET

Not that I have already attained this – that is, I have not already been perfected – but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me.

“So then, be perfect.”—Make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge; to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love.

And I pray this, that your love may abound even more and more in knowledge and every kind of insight.

“Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him.” God has revealed these to us by the Spirit.

Consequently a Sabbath rest remains for the people of God.—You will see a king in his splendor; you will see a wide land.

Phil 3:12, Matt 5:48, 2 Pet 1:5-7, Phil 1:9, 1 Cor 2:9-10, Heb 4:9, Isa 33:17

He is the Come Through God.

* “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD.”

Psalm 31.24

* “Waiting with hope is very difficult, but true patience is expressed when we must even wait for hope. I will have reached the point of greatest strength once I have learned to wait for hope.” -George Matheson

* “We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon is, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.” Psalm 33:20-22

We wait IN hope. 

We wait FOR the Lord. 

We are helped and protected BY the Lord. 

We rejoice IN the Lord. 

We trust IN His name. 

And as we hope in God, may his unfailing love rest on us. 

Circumstances will fail. People will fail. Dreams will fail. We will fail.

But Love?” Love never fails.” – 1 Corinthians 13:8

Praying that simple, yet utterly profound truth – Love never fails- would sink down into all the cracks and crevices of my life and yours.

AMEN.
