Day 236 – By the river…

“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” Psalm 94:18-19

Day 202 – Secret garden

“The Lord will comfort Israel again and have pity on her ruins. Her desert will blossom like Eden, her barren wilderness like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found there. Songs of thanksgiving will fill the air.” Isaiah 51:3

(I remembered the first time I watched the movie The Secret Garden. I was probably around 10 years old and something that I watched on the movie stayed inside of me… I didn’t remembered the story per say but I carried the feeling I got from it trough my whole life… I watched it again today after so many years… and now I know why I used to draw a swing with a hat on when I was a child… Somehow when I watched for the first time I grasped the magic of it… I think that gardens bring us back to the creation and that must be something is us that drive us to it… It was at a garden where God chose the first humans to live and if it wasn’t for sin we would’ve been there… The good thing is that God is still offering this garden to us everyday and He will make as blossom and just like in a garden we will be filled with joy!)


Day 193 – Joyful!

“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!” Philippians 4:4


Day 118 – Back there…

“Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.” Psalms 51:8

(When I read this verse last night, I knew exactly where to go this morning… It says: “Let me hear joy” and I just knew I had to go back there and hear the birds freely singing… It is the same place of this post Lonely Bench back in January 23th but a different perspective… God is been so merciful to me these past days and I feel I’m getting to that place I once was…)


Day 114 – Comforting rain…

“The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.” Isaiah 51:3


Day 93 – Ask!

“Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” John 16:24
