The Path

My mind is tired

The path is worn 

I’ve been pushing up this hill forlorn 

The weight of another day ahead

The road long traveled 

Is wearing my tread. 

But I still have breath

And I’m still alive 

The way isn’t clear 

But I still can rise

I can’t see the answers 

But I’m still assured 

That my Lord is my Savior

I haven’t been spurned.

For He goes before me 

I’m hemmed in on all sides 

With a whisper He reminds me 

He takes care of His bride 

He’s my humble Shepherd 

Who turns the tides 

My mighty God 

Who brings dry bones to life. 

Though my mind is tired 

And the path is worn 

I will tread it with faith and receive my reward

For the Lord is with me

He’s my shield and sword 

No foe shall claim victory 

While my Jesus is Lord.

Restoration 

Our God is a God of restoration. Jesus not only died to restore our relationship with our Father God, and to bring those dead in sin to life, but God continues to restore all the dry areas of our lives. Nothing is impossible for our mighty God. Take heart! Jesus lives and has overcome the world! He will do a good work in all of those who abide in Him for He mustn’t lose even one of them. (John 6:39)

“Yes, He does restore the hope of all those who wait for a miracle.”

Yes He Does/Stars Go Dim

The Valley of the Dry Bones 

“The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel.  Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them.  I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’”

Ezekiel 37:1-14
