restoration

“He prays to God and finds favor with him, he sees God’s face and shouts for joy; he is restored by God to his righteous state”  Job 33:26

Reading this verse today, brings my prodigal to my mind continually today and deeper in my heart (if that is possible).  This is what I want, what I desire, what I pray for my prodigal.  There is no other joy than the joy God gives each of us.  I long for the day I see my prodigal restored, the shackles of deceit broken . . . restored to a right relationship with the One he called Abba Father.  I long to see him standing firm, firmly planted just like that oak tree on CHR — “that {he} may be called a tree of righteousness, a planting of the Lord, that HE may be glorified” (Isaiah 61:3).  The tree may be in the season of winter now, but I believe, I have faith, spring will come again to him and he will turn his heart to You and grow that You will be glorified.  I have prayed for him, and his brother and his sister, even before each were born and now I will not give up.  Seasons change.  Darkness passes.  HIS light can and will overcome any darkness.

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
