From ashes to beauty

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

 Jeremiah 29:11

”They shall neither hunger nor thirst,
Neither heat nor sun shall strike them;
For He who has mercy on them will lead them,
Even by the springs of water He will guide them.”

Isaiah 49:10

 

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

John 7:38

 

”Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.”

Isaiah 43:19

Jesus- the peace of my heART

 

”I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27

Though storms surround me, I will not be shaken, cause I know you are with me.

Forgiven

forgivness

Your grace speaks louder than my shame,

my mistakes, all my failures.

 

Your blood covers all my transgressions,

through your sacrifice at the cross

i

am

made

clean.

 

Just because of what you did,

not because of what i can do.

 

Your arms are open wide.

Your love will never fail me.

 

All I can do is just to receive your grace

and your grace is enough for me.

 

Through your eyes, i am beautiful.

 

You won´t hold my sin against me,

there´s  no condemnation for those who believe in you.

 

Thank you Jesus- your love is greater than i can comprehend!

 

”Those who look to him are radiant;
   their faces are never covered with shame.”
//Psalm 34

”I said, “I will confess
    my transgressions to the Lord.”
And you forgave
    the guilt of my sin.”
//Psalm 32

I´m yours

I know the Lord is always with me.
    I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.

No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.
    My body rests in safety.

For you will not leave my soul among the dead
    or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.

You will show me the way of life,
    granting me the joy of your presence
    and the pleasures of living with you forever.

Psalm 16
