In You there is hope! In You there is life. No one on earth is too far gone, too separated from You to receive Your Spirit of life. I am in awe of Your powerful and amazing grace and Your relentless mercy, Lord. Just as You breathed hope into dry, brittle bones in the book of Ezekiel, You continue to breathe Your life into me and Your chosen people, restoring our souls and starting new life inside.
Your truth tells me in Ezekiel that You will give me a new heart if I continue to seek Your ways:
I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules (Ezekiel 36:26–27 ESV).
Gracious Heavenly Father, Your presence in me is my joy, and I never want to know a single moment apart from You. Protect my heart from the ways of the world because there are times that my soul feels as dry as those bones in the valley. But nothing is too hard for You who created me. You give me life and You will not leave me!
