Day 40: Restoration

restorationRestoration

: the act or process of returning something to its original condition

PRAY: God, I rejoice that your Kingdom has come to earth through your Son. I know we are in an age of “now-and-not-yet”—your Kingdom is here, but it is still to come. Today, I pray that you would make our nation part of your restorative work on earth. I pray that the results of this election would usher America into an age of joyful participation in the ultimate restoration of your Kingdom on earth.

Acts 15:16-18

“Afterward I will return and restore the fallen house of David. I will rebuild its ruins and restore it, so that the rest of humanity might seek the Lord, including the Gentiles— all those I have called to be mine. The Lord has spoken— he who made these things known so long ago.”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
