“When the LORD brought back the captives… we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The LORD has done great things for them.’ The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, LORD, like streams… Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.” Psalm 126 (NIV)
Dear Risen Savior,
We were sentenced to death but You gave us a promise that we would live. It looked to all the world like everything was lost on Your cross; but even then You were upending death itself. We did not understand what it would cost You to pay our debt. We didn’t know the purchase price was Your life— You did and gave it willingly. Thank you for waking us one by one from the endless nightmare of trying to pay our own way to heaven. You are now our Beautiful Reality, our Ransom.
The stuff of dreams is True! We can be forgiven, washed clean with a new heart; a new start each day, a new eternal destination! We can sow the seeds of this message in the fields of the world. There will be sheaves of joy! Jesus, You are the Dream Maker, the Dream Giver! We who know You are Living the Dream! Hallelujah! We Live!
In Jesus Name Forever
