♕ Today's Promise: "Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere. Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits." Song of Songs 4:16

"For your Maker is your husband- the Lord Almighty is his name-The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer he is called the God of all the earth. The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit- a wife who married young, only to be rejected, says your God." Isaiah 54: 5-6
I am so blessed while sending this praise report! It was the last day of my three day fast, I was searching for the King, my Beloved's favor. I was alone in my room, nearly time to go to bed when He was guiding me to read Isaiah 54:5-6 again. I've read this so many times, but then God showed me something that never entered my mind like this! He allowed me to become a wife deserted and distressed in spirit, so that He can call me back. I've just realized that the God of all the earth, has gone through all the "trouble" to call "little old me" back. I don't feel so little anymore! He has removed my lover and friend, because He wants me to have an intimate relationship with His Son, my Beloved. He wants me all to Himself. I was overwhelmed at the thought that I, and all you beautiful brides are so loved by God that you were in His thoughts when these words were written in the book of Isaiah thousands of years ago. Now I know what it means when His Word says in James 1:3 Count it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials.
Praise The Lord that I was "chosen" to go through this trial. One of the most painful things a women can go through to be rejected by her EH (earthly husband), but O the joy, when her HH (Heavenly Husband) calls her back! I went to bed with so much joy and peace, but this was not the end. In the early morning hours I was woken up with a beautiful smell in my room. It was fresh and clean (the way I like it), but I knew it was not a familiar smell in my room. I knew it was the Holy Spirit in my room. And guess what was the scripture verse for our Encouraging group the next day? "Awake north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread abroad." Song of Songs 4:16. I just want to Praise my Loving Heavenly Father and my Beloved Heavenly Husband for how wonderful You work all things, just because You love us unconditionally. I am so humbled by the way You made this so personal and intimate. I love You Lord!

The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit a wife who married young, only to be rejected,' says your God" Isaiah 54:5-6
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1: 2-4
