(A Message inspired by Holley Gerth’s book, You’re Already Amazing)
“…lost in our thoughts, wondering at the way God works. He doesn’t just restore, he transforms. Beauty from ashes – or brokenness.”
– Holley Gerth
Seeing Myself (Resonating Thought): Do you ever wonder at the way God works in your life?
Reflection (Scripture Meditation): Isaiah 55:8-9
Phone Tree Chat (Discussion): Sometimes we just don’t get it. We don’t get how the hard things, the tough things, the things that challenge us beyond our limits can work for our good. We don’t get how any of it can be fruitful. When we are going through the rough patches, it’s all we can do to inhale and exhale. It’s all we can do to lift our heads enough to even turn the other cheek or to find the grace in it all. But it all has a purpose ultimately. For the believer, the one who follows after the LORD Jesus Christ, it is purposed for God’s glory. There is meaning in the seemingly meaningless. There is a higher, more divine purpose. And through it, God is at work to restore, to transform, to heal, and to make whole each one of us. God is at work making His already beautiful creation even more so.
In the Mirror (Question to Consider): Have you ever asked God to show you the work that He desires to accomplish in and through your life or through your life circumstances?
