The Way It Was


“Many of My children have become discouraged, disheartened and at times even feel that you would quit, give up.  But then ask yourself, “Where would I go?  I don’t want to go back to the way it was.”

I tell you, put your hand in My hand and go forward with Me.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel.  The Light is beckoning you; it is the POWER OF THE CROSS.  You are coming out of a wilderness season.

Yes, there have been mishaps along the road, for things have come across your pathway that you were not expecting; there have been tragedies, loss of loved ones, accidents, and lack.  This pressure that you have been experiencing has been squeezing and molding you, and changing you into the image of My Son.

When the hour was dark and trials came, your heart was aching and the tears flowing, I was at work.  I take these circumstances of your life, and I turn them, and spin them, and change them causing them to work together for your ultimate good.

Thank you beloved for trusting Me, thank you for walking on with Me through every season of life.  Always remember, it is not the way it was, but the way it shall be in My Glorious Eternal Kingdom.  Rejoice and be filled with My JOY!”

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.  He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday,”   Psalm 37: 5-6.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”   Romans 8:28.

  1. Just when it seems it’s breaking through, it gets wild (again)…. there are fantastic words….and more waiting. There is “nothing sure” ahead but going back is not an option. Was given prompting to move but not sure where :-) is one step at a time holding His hand tightly…. praising Him for His faithfulness to me… in Him I trust.keep me close, help me Lord.
