Every day of the week, and most weekends, I receive an encouraging devotional message via text by Sandy Geraldo. I plan to share many of those texts here and hope that they are a blessing to you, too!-lz

How often do we disappoint ourselves. We have such high hopes and pure intentions but inevitably, we find ourselves burnt out with the burdens of life. The messiness of life can leave us feeling exhausted not only physically but also spiritually, in our very souls. We all need renewal and it begins with the compassion of God and a heart ready for change. When the two are put together, we find a new beginning, a soul refreshed, and life revived.
“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.” 2 Cor. 4:16

There is no one like the mighty God we serve! Only He can go before you and make every crooked path straight and every rough place smooth! Only God can turn a set back into a set-up! God is faithful! His faithfulness will never fail you!
“O Lord God Almighty, who is like You? You are mighty O Lord, and Your faithfulness surrounds You.” Psalm 89: 8
God’s promised to never leave or forsake us. He said His Word is a lamp unto our feet, and that He would give us hidden treasures in the secret places in darkness. Nothing is ever waisted with God not even our hurts or pains. He’s promised to turn what the enemy meant for evil around for your good.
” When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through the rivers of difficultly, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2
