Psalm 119:81-84 “My soul faints for Your salvation, but I hope in Your word. My eyes fail from searching Your word, saying, “When will You comfort me?” For I have become like a wineskin in smoke, yet I do not forget Your statutes. How many are the days of Your servant? When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me?”
Leader, an old song says, ‘some days are diamonds, others are coal’. I bless you with the freedom to allow yourself to experience both. I bless you with the ‘coal’ days reminding you that you are but a sojourner on this earth – perfection awaits us hereafter. I bless you with being reminded that these days are preparation for ‘diamond’ days – if your heart is set to obey God’s principles, any hardship is productive pain. Be wise not to reject those days, but also be honest in relaying your pain to God – He is relational; He can take anything you fling at Him! I bless you with perseverance. I bless you with God’s intervention at the right time, with your full restoration and with you being able to pass on the valuable lessons you have learnt. I bless you with shining like a diamond in a world hungry for hope, joy and peace.
