We serve an incredible God. Each day, He literally paints us a picture of His love for us. He allows the sun to rise and set and shows us how far He has cast our sins, as far as the east is from the west. (Psalm 103:12) Every day, He stretches out His arms and says "Come, all that you are and all that you have. I love you and I want to fill you with my embrace."
Things may look rough now. It may seem as though you have nothing left and that God isn't even listening. But just wait, good soldier of the Lord. He has wonderful things planned for you, things you would never be able to dream up yourself. I don't know about you but, I have some pretty big dreams. To think that He has plans even greater than those dreams is absolutely amazing. It definitely makes waiting on the Lord much easier.
I love the word explosive. Many times, I feel like this is exactly what God's love and blessing is like. The oceans of life may be pounding you, pushing you to the shore, but all of a sudden you feel the breath of air from the Holy Sprit and you feel the power to stand.
So this is my declaration. That whether I know it or not, the Lord is working in my life. His face is shining upon me and He is calling me blessed. I declare that I make mistakes, but I am still loved. I declare that I may not look like that model on the cover of that magazine, but I am a daughter of the Most High. I declare that every one of you is special in the sight of God. You are loved, cherished, and cared for. This is my declaration, that I will ever sing for joy even in my darkest of days, because He is planning something for me far better than my dreams.....
