Just a quick note to let you know I've moved my blog to the following address:

Please visit me at REDEEMED...RESTORED...RELEASED: One Woman's Story of Living Free to read more about what God is doing in my life and how He is working those things to set me free. Thanks so much for following, visiting, reading all about it and supporting me as you have done so many times these last few years. If you follow my other blogs, the posts from all three of my blogs are going to be transferred to the new digs for one big blog about our journey to restoration and freedom in Christ.

A New Jerusalem...

At my counseling appointment on Monday, my counselor asked God to give me a promise for our marriage. Now... Before I even go there I need you to hear this loud and clear: This is not foundational doctrine. This is simply God taking a passage of Scripture and giving me a vision for my marriage. If the truth discovered here benefits you - then take what you can use, but know that this is a promise I am praying over for my husband, my marriage and family. These are words I've heard God speaking over us since Monday night and as I have meditated on these verses the vision has become more clear.

I will include the verse today and write more of what God has revealed to me in the days ahead... It is a beautiful promise. The verse is Jeremiah 33:6-9 (Amplified).

"6 Behold, [in the future restored Jerusalem] I will lay upon it health and healing, and I will cure them and will reveal to them the abundance of peace (prosperity, security, stability) and truth. 7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to be reversed and will rebuild them as they were at first. 8 And I will cleanse them from all the guilt and iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will forgive all their guilt and iniquities by which they have sinned and rebelled against Me. 9 And [Jerusalem] shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth that hear of all the good I do for it, and they shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace, prosperity, security, and stability I provide for it." ~ Jeremiah 33:6-9 (AMP)

Do you see the New Jerusalem in the passage?

Until Tomorrow - Be blessed.

Dear Michelle,
I prayed for you on Monday dear one and am now just reading that you had a counseling appointment that day.
And this is the third time this week I've heard the Amplified version of God's Word mentioned. It's on my wish list.
Love and hugs across the miles.
