    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

A Beautiful Mess

  • You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride. You have ravished my heart with one of your eyes, With one chain of your neck. How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much better is your love than wine! The fragrance of your perfumes than all manner of spices! Song 4:9 WEB

    It is refreshing to see people who are truly in love. When a person first falls in love, they can see nothing but good in the other person. How beautiful, how perfect, oh how smart they are. If someone tries to warn them about how bad this person really is, they just completely ignore it. 'You are wrong! That is impossible!' They may even hit you...

    God loves you this way all the time. He does not see all of your faults and shortcomings. If someone tried to tell Him how messed up you really are, He ignores it. He gave His only begotten Son to take away your sins, who washed you with His own blood. Now we only have to ask for His forgiveness.

    Paul wrote: 'For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.' (Romans 8:38'39).

    If you turn your back and walk away, He would be heartbroken, but He loves you enough to let you go free. You are a beautiful mess to the Lord, and He loves every bit of you and nothing that you do is going to change that. His arms are always open.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for loving me just as I am. Now I choose to love You back. Walk with me, talk with me, and help me get to know You better today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

When I was younger, I yearned to fall in love, and when I finally thought I did, I later learned that it was only infatuation. Falling into infatuation, can be very painful and not rewarding at all. Anytime that I have fallen into something, it's usually been an accident, like falling into a hole, it's rarely been intentional, and often quite embarrassing.

As a result, I don't want to fall in into anything, infatuation, a hole, or in love, I want to choose those things, I taught my children to choose their friends wisely, and their spouses even wiser. part of being of self control, is not allowing our emotions to overpower us, if we allowed this, we would all be basket cases.
