Forgive and Never Forget

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:7 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Scarlet turned to snow. “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Rebellion met with red. Nothing is greater than His blood. Nothing it won’t restore, reconcile, redeem. Covenant blood poured out for many. Sin drenched with love. By His stripes, I am healed.…

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.…

His goal is to destroy and lead God’s children away from His will. Just as God has a good plan for my life, satan has one for destruction. He knows my weaknesses. Temptation and sin always…

Rip Tide

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. Revelation 2:5 Undertow of sin carries me far from shore. Arteries so clogged with my will, His lifeblood can’t get through. No longer my first love, the Lord becomes a consolation prize. A…

Garden Weeds

The snake came quietly and the weeds grew tall. Choking weeds that began as seeds - seeds in the heart of a girl. A girl who wanted love and didn’t know her value. A girl who didn’t know she is the daughter of the King Most High and so precious He bled and died for her. A girl who sacrificed herself on the alter of people approval and in striving to win the world, lost pieces of her soul. The…

Temptation Triumph

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. Matthew 4:1-11 NIV God sent Himself in the person of Jesus on a rescue mission. He came to redeem humanity but Jesus didn’t have to experience all He did to accomplish it. He loves me (and you) so much it wasn’t enough to conquer death. Jesus wanted to experience what we experience and know us intimately. He was willing to walk in our shoes…
