Encouragement For The Discouraged!

by Hazel Straub

Have you wondered what good could come out the failures, sins, poor choices, and challenges, in your life? Take heart, God takes what the enemy meant for evil and turns it into good, for those that love him.

The ugly, hard and what shames you, in God’s hands become fertilizer to grow you into show stopping champions, in God’s garden. Rich garden soil that produces the most beautiful roses comes from composted manure. What caused the greatest stench in your life, turns into a fragrant rose-bush, under the skilled hands of the Master Gardener. Rejoice!

I am sent to announce a new season of Yahweh’s grace and a time of God’s recompense on his enemies, to comfort all who are in sorrow, to strengthen those crushed by despair who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful bouquet in the place of ashes, the oil of bliss instead of tears, and the mantle of joyous praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. Because of this, they will be known as Mighty Oaks of Righteousness, planted by Yahweh as a living display of his glory. (Isaiah 61:2-3 TPT)
