original weeping

There is life and glory after the death of a thing in your life. When you give up things that mean so much to you, things that have taken My place, you will grieve. Because setting aside falsehood feels like death. But I have called you to take up your cross and follow Me. I promise you life after death.  After you have surrendered and mourned your loss you will begin to experience My power at work bringing forth newness and hope. I want you to set aside your mistrust of Me and believe Me. The things you can hold in your hands are lies that will harm you. They can’t satisfy you. Only I can satisfy you, for you were made for Me. I don’t have plans to harm you. I have plans to give you a hope and a future.  ~Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

Isaiah 55:2 Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen. Listen to Me and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
