Isaiah 62 - the call of my life

The first time I read Isaiah 62 my heart connected in a way that surprised me. God began to show me then that this was my verse. This was what God was going to do for me, He was going to do this in MY life. And He has done it!

God ent those to me that gave the good news of God's love for ME. He sent those to me that would help heal my broken heart and help free me from my prison.

God has shown me HIS Grace and HE has destroyed my enemy of shame.God sent those in my life that would comfort me as I mourned what was lost and they would care for me.

God then took my ashes and turned them into beauty. He gave me a new name. And then God took the ruins of my life and made something new and wonderful.

I am left with a heart that loves my Lord, a heart that wants to serve Him, a heart that longs to do God's will. Not just God's will for His people but His will for ME!

And my soul wonders why would God want to do all this for me apart from His love for me? He has done this so that I can go into the world and do the same.

I am feeling that God has anointed me to share God's love and grace to the poor and heartbroken. He wants me to tell those in captivity to shame and sin that they can be free.

O how my heart longs to help women rebuild their lives, to know the love of Jesus. To know that His love can and does set them free. I want them to know that they are not unforgotten, unlovable, ruined, dirty, trash, forsaken, but God calls them "Oaks of Righteousness" and He wants to display HIS glory through them.

They need to know! Who will tell them?

I want these women to know that God can raise something new out of the wreckage of their lives, they CAN start over. I want to have the opportunity to share with them that God will take the rubble of their live and make it new.

Oh God my life is yours, use me as you will, show me what it is you are calling me to. Show me what it is that you desire for me. My heart grows restless and I wonder just what you are up to. Are you calling me to something new?


  1. That is awesome! I am so happy for you, for the healing for the hope, for the restoration, and for how He is already using you to touch other's lives. Bless you!

  2. Thanks for the prayers- we certainly need them! God has been gracious to continue to show Himself in the midst of it all. I keep asking when our life will slow down, but it never does. Just when there's a lull, God brings something else to turn our world upside down. Keeps us dependent on Him, so that's a good thing! I have managed to keep up with reading our friends posts, just haven't had time to comment and really respond...but I am reading! :)

  3. I read this same passage you are referring to in my quiet time this morning... isn't God just cool!

    And I wanted you to know that I shared your testimony with my class of girls last night and God moved in mighty ways! It was a wonderful class and I could just see God at work in those girls lives and hearts, there were tears, sharing, hugs, and encouragement... it was a wonderful night! Thanks so much for being willing to share your story!


  4. I read what you write and it is so uplifting. Thank daughter saw me reading your blog and commented on how pretty it was... :-)

    Thank you for sharing what God is doing in your life.

  5. It appears to me God is giving you a burden to get involved in a ministry outside the church; in the highways and byways. He puts the desires in our hearts and it is up to us to put action to them. James 1:22

    I too, enjoy reading your blog and agree it is beautiful. I was going to leave a comment on the blog appearing after this one, but I've said what I wanted to.

    Go forth-see what God can do. Get some of the ladies from the church involved in an outreach ministry. God Bless You.


Leave me some joy...
