He Restores My Soul

Thanks to Donald Giannatti @wizwow for the awesome photo.

Before I woke I had a disturbing dream. My daughter was speaking to actress Jessica Simpson about 10 feet from me in the middle of a shopping mall. Remember, this was a dream. My daughter wore a beautiful creamy dress, with hair long and curled down her back. She laughed and talked with Jessica without even glancing my way.

Then, she walked away and entered a store. That’s when I spotted an adorable small girl scurrying by her side. Also in a fancy dress, I knew in my heart she was the granddaughter I’d never met. You see, my daughter shut me out of her life. As well as the lives of my two grandchildren.

I’m a grandma, but have never had the blessing of sharing with a precious boy and girl. I don’t know if they’ll ever know me—or I them. This truly grieves me from the bottom of my soul.

Before I opened my eyes, I prayed, “Lord, please take away these images. Please dissolve them from my mind. I then recited Psalm 23. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…and stopped short at the point of verse 3, which goes like this:

He restores my soul.

I whispered this over and over. HE restores my soul.

During this virus crisis are you in despair? Do you have some healing that needs to happen in your life? Turn to the great healer. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus Christ. He will forgive and heal you if you ask. Turn to Him. The Great Physician.

Matthew 11: 28-29 says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Let me know if you have a burden on your soul and need prayer. I’d be more than happy to pray for you.
