Jeremiah 30:17

For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

I know all too well the feeling of loneliness and abandonment. I've spent many restless nights not being able to figure out why I could not fall asleep. Years of running from my calling, working against my purpose, and being in direct defiance of God's will left me broken spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. It also began to take a toll on my family and close relationships.

One night while at the computer googling the word restoration this scripture leaped out at me from inside the monitor and as I explained to my wife weeping, it felt as if the word of God reached into my chest and begin to minister to the inner parts of my heart and soul. Those feelings of loneliness, grief from the recent passing of my father, brokenness from unresolved hurts and losses were washed away as I sat in tears.


God spoke to those broken areas in my life. His word rushed in to fill and mend the crevices of my heart. He restored my faith and joy on that night. From here until the moment God calls His breath home from this vessel, I AM committed to seeking His face, striving to make sure He is well pleased with me, and proclaiming the precious name of Christ Jesus with the gospel.


For I have wasted many breaths speaking things that don't glorify Him. NO MORE!
