Strength That Flows – Jasmine’s Journey of Healing
It’s like taking a satisfying, cool drink after exerting ourselves in the heat of a summer day. That moment that fulfills a deep, intense need. It’s the place I always come back to as I begin to rise up after a long, hard battle.
His Word. It washes the beauty and hope of God’s truth over the barrenness of my soul. This morning I felt impressed to pick up a scrap book/journal that I have been making as a gift for Jasmine. As I began to look through the pages I’ve finished so far I smiled as I read this declaration that I wrote for her from Isaiah 43.
Remember who created you, who shaped you. You have nothing to fear. I have chosen you, named you as My own. When you face stormy seas I will be there with endurance and calm; you will not be engulfed in raging rivers. If it seems like you’re walking though fire with flames licking at your limbs, keep going; you won’t be burned. Because I, the Eternal One, am your God. I am the Holy One of Israel, and I will save you. You are special to Me and I love you. So don’t be afraid, I am here. I made, shaped, and created you for My profound glory.
It’s more than just reading these powerful verses. It’s about praying them as I meditate and visualize God bringing these promises to life for Jasmine. It brings me strength that flows down and satisfies the deepest places of my heart.
