Even on dusty, earthbound paths

to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.” Isaiah 61:3

Claim the promises of the crown of beauty, the oil of joy, and the garment of praise.

The friendship I offer you is practical and down-to-earth, yet it is saturated with heavenly Glory. Living in My Presence means living in two realms simultaneously; the visible world and unseen, eternal reality. I have equipped you to stay conscious of Me while walking along dusty, earthbound paths. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.” 2 Corinthians 6:10

Waiting on and for God

Blessed are all they that wait for him” Isaiah 30:18

When we wait on God, He is waiting until we are ready; when we wait for God, we are waiting until He is ready. A petition presented before God is like a seed dropped in the ground. Forces above and beyond our control must work upon it, till the true fruition of the answer is given. -Streams in the Desert

Submitting to the Lord’s timing is also an essential part of obedience. What would have happened if the army decided to bypass God’s plans for the first six days and skip straight to the seventh day’s march around Jericho? They would have missed the victory. -Dr. Charles Stanley

Everything you are concerned about or that causes you to hesitate, God has already figured it out. Before He called you, He knew how to solve every challenge you would ever encounter.  -Walking With God, Life Principle #5
