Day 15: happy tears


What do you think of when you the first words you read are

"WHEN YOU ...."?

It all depends on what words follow the

WHEN YOU~

WHEN YOU encounter the GOOD

or

WHEN YOU encounter the NOT SO GOOD.

We all like the GOOD.

BUT the GOOD WILL always follows the NOT SO GOOD

when

GOD IS IN YOUR STORY

as HE takes you through the NOT SO GOOD

to get to the GOOD

that is oh so much BETTER than you could ever imagine.

And the process takes STEADFASTNESS

to BELIEVE with

ALL YOUR HEART

ALL YOUR SOUL

&

ALL YOUR MIND.

But you don't do it alone.

"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you, ____________(put your name). I have summoned you by name, ____________, you are mine" *(Isaiah 43:1-3)

Therefore "WHEN YOU pass through the waters..."

WHEN your BROKEN FEELINGS cause the waters of TEARS to flow from your being~ "...I will be with you"*

Producing HAPPY TEARS.

And "WHEN YOU pass through the rivers..."~

WHEN your BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS are streaming through your whole soul ~ "...they will not sweep over you"*

And "WHEN YOU walk through the fire..."~

WHEN your BROKEN CIRCUMSTANCES are blazing all around you "...you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze"*

BECAUSE

"I am the LORD your GOD, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior"*( Isaiah 43:1-3)

Therefore

WHEN YOU __________

remember that

"GOD WILL WORK ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM

WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE" (Romans 8:28).

Because

GOD & JESUS & THE HOLY SPIRIT

ARE IN YOUR STORY

through ALL

and

THEY

"WON'T LET GO"

(listen to the song below)
