We can go through difficult seasons in life. Sometimes this is because of things that are out of our control, and sometimes because of our own missteps. No matter what season we are in, we can know that it has an end which leads to a new beginning.
We bear the image of the creator of Heaven and Earth, and are all intrinsically valuable. We were made for communion with our maker, healthy, intimate relationships with others, and a purpose on planet earth.
Even when we wanted nothing to do with God, He didn’t leave us separated from Him. He so loved the world that He sent His only begotten son to earth to rescue, redeem and restore us back to our original purpose.
Jesus paid the price for our sin through His sinless life, death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. Now we can receive His free gift of salvation and abundant life and be healed, whole and restored.
As we travel this journey of life, we can know that God is with us, for us and on our side. He is leading the way, and as we follow Him we will find ourselves fully provided for, comforted in dark times and led to a table prepared for us, where our cup runs over, where we can dwell with the community of believers, and where goodness and mercy pursue us all the days of our lives.
