Rebuilding Ruins- Ezekiel 11:19

"I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. " Ezekiel 11:19

I've always been a work in progress. Years ago, I completely destroyed my life. I would like to say it was the fault of abuse among other things, but I can't. Ultimately, I was the one who messed up. I chose the wrong path and I've been paying for it ever since. I sat, wallowing in the darkness, alone and full of hate. I was a despicable creature who only cared for myself. But He saw me, He saw something in me, that I didn't see. A beauty.... Change that I didn't know was there. So, God fought for me. Slowly, I found Him. He had been waiting for me all along. Despite myself, He loved me. Now, these desolate ruins are being restored, slowly but surely because of His enduring and powerful love. I will never be the same. Now, I love life, because He has given me purpose. I'm so different than who I once was, it's amazing. I want you to know that it doesn't matter what you've done, Jesus loves you. God created you for a purpose. No one can take your place.
