Heaven’s Hope

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 Beloved, do not fear. He wipes away every tear and death is no more. Mourning, crying and pain are gone. Former things passed away. My Father’s house has many rooms. He’s prepared one just for you. It’s beyond imagination. Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame. He is…

Broken Chains

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 Be. Still. Know. Be still and know. He is God. Stop striving. Come to Me. Trade worldly burdens for easy and light. Everlasting love. Broken hearts bound. Soul’s rest. Captives set free. Life eternal. Tears wiped away. Pain no more. [bctt tweet="Come, all who labor and are laden heavy." username="Liz_Petruzzi"] The enemy kills, steals and destroys. Christ gives peace, hope, love, joy.…

New Song

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Lord is my strength and my song. My salvation. The God I praise. Night presses long. He promises joy in the morning. Walks with me through shadows and valleys. Upholds me with His righteous, right Hand. He is my strength and shield. Help in time of need. Rock of salvation. He rejoices with gladness. Quiets with His…

Mountain of Peace

I am beyond excited about this post - it features the beautiful photography of Theresa Flaminio. I met Theresa on Instagram where her amazing images captured me. (I am in love with her photos of wild horses) For anyone who doesn't believe you can form real friendships through social media, you are wrong. Theresa has become a treasured friend and I'm excited to share her talent of capturing God's creation. I've included a link to her Instagram at the bottom…

Lose to Gain

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes from faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith Philippians 3:8-9 Success. Financial security. Home ownership.…

Abide

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. John 15:15 Apart from the vine, I can do nothing. Remain. Be still. Listen and follow. I cannot grow or bear fruit disconnected. Continue and persevere. He strengthens me. Fear not. [bctt tweet="With God all things are possible." username="Liz_Petruzzi"] Let me not become weary. The harvest is coming. Patient endurance. In my weakness, He is strong. Constant prayer. Blessed are those who remain steadfast. Steadfast in Christ. Suffering produces…

Serenity Now

And she gave birth to her firstborn, a Son. She wrapped Him in cloths and placed Him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. Luke 2:7 In the push and pull of the Christmas season, I long for quiet and calm. To sit at the Savior’s feet and experience the hush of a stable bathed in starlight. I long for tasks to stop ticking through my head like a CNN banner. For quality over quantity.…

A Child is Born

All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 7:11-12 Perfect love. Rock of salvation. His body and blood Heaven’s bridge. I need not fear. Behold and be loved. Inequity removed. Robes for rags. Come, let us adore Him. He…

Weak Made Strong

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 1 Corinthians 1:27 Grafted then drafted. Soldier of light. Sword of truth. Shield of faith. Grow in grace. Strength and power. The Spirit He gives isn’t timid. There is power in His Love and Name. In my weakness He is strong. Glory revealed. God, our Father, heals, transforms, provides, protects, loves without limits or condition.…

Love Endures

Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. John 16:22 O Lord my God, I cry to you for help. The night stretches long but morning will come. Your promise preserves my life. You are my portion, my salvation and grace. You delight in Your people and remember sin no more. Deliver and rescue. Stronghold. Shield and refuge. I trust Your Holy Name. Your…
