New Day

Isaiah 48:10
“Look, I have refined you,
but not as silver;
I have tested you in the
furnace of affliction.”

Today is a new day. Today I look back and say these words to my Heavenly Father:

“Thank You, Father, for the trials. Thank you for holding me through it all. And thank You for delivering me from so much junk while I was in that furnace. Thank You that You are still with me, still working on me faithfully until the day I see You face to face.

“Wow, how I hated those trials, Lord. A lot of it was from my own poor choices and the natural consequences. Yet You allowed it and used it for my good and for the good of Your kingdom. And now that the chains around my heart and around my mind are clinking to my feet, all I can do is thank You over and over!

“Please help me never go back to the bondages. Please may my life be all about YOU and not all about me. I love You, Lord. I love You.”

  • May my life be all about YOU, Lord, and not about me. That should be our constant prayer! Thanks for the reminder, Susan.

  • Thank you for the verses, for sharing your struggles and coming through the other side. I've enjoyed reading your blog especially this, Through the Fire (?), and Unbelief. Really helpful, Susie. Thanks for allowing god to work through you. Lori
