Pattern for this Prayer Square coming soon
This square is inspired by Isaiah 45:19
Is 45:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert.
I have never felt closer to my savior then in the midst of a storm when he came near to me.
The Bible says he is near to the broken hearted. It's true.
I had never felt his presence before when all in my life seemed to fall apart. My father was dying of cancer and my husband and I were headed for divorce. That is when I really began to seek God with everything within me. That is when I found him.
Jer 29:13-14 And ye shall seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
I think I must have read through Isaiah two or three times during that wilderness time. I had never seen things the way I did when I was hurting the most. It's like the Bible came to life and became so personal. There were times when I swear that God was speaking in my ear.
Is 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine.
I do not regret the wilderness places because God showed his mighty hand in my life. He showed me his healing love and his saving grace. Where would I be now if I had not experienced it? He brought me out. I was able to witness to my father before he died and God saved my marriage.
He is still doing wonders in my life. I am just amazed by him and overwhelmed by his love.
