Beautiful Sparrow, forgiven-joy is the wonder of grace and mercy that are unearned and undeserved. It is an amazement of the Holy Spirit deposited in you the instant you believed on Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. It is the awe of communion and fellowship with God himself. It is the shield that becomes your saving help and the hand that sustains and makes you great.
It is the promise of eternal life; the ultimate restoration to full well-being.
When we remember the sin-pardon that’s been given, it cannot help but cause our hearts to be “re-set” in purpose and perspective.
Your salvation story is the fulfillment of the ultimate plan and when this joy is restored, you are unable to respond with anything less than humility and gratefulness.
Jesus, restore to me the joy of my salvation. Bring me to the place of confessing all sin that hinders me from living out of Your Living Water. Cause my heart and mind to re-set in the fact that my soul is redeemed. Sustain me in Your freedom so I can proclaim Your hope to others. It’s in Your Holy Name I pray, amen.
Psalm 51:12-13, Psalm 80:3, James 1:2,
I pray you Live Like You Know …where you are going.
Strength to strength,
