A River of Tears of Joy

Lately, I have been experiencing an unusual contradiction. I find myself weeping, not because I am sad or in pain, but because of the overwhelming joy I feel as the direct result of God’s mercy and grace. God holds back the judgment that I deserve, declares me innocent, forgave me and on top of all that, as if that is not enough, He also blesses me with His incomparable grace as He blesses me beyond my comprehension. “Oh God, you are so amazing!” I say from the center of my soul; for the enemy had a plan to destroy and even as I cooperated with that plan, God rescued me.


I saw my Lord blowing the trumpet of His mercy towards my life; the sound that terrified the enemy and melted my soul with such expression of love. I see the green pastures of God’s prosperity, I see the salvation of the Lord coming down from the mountains of impossibilities made possible, I see the glory of His hope shinning upon my dark hours, I can see now and walk in the promise land of a great future, I see the valley of dry bones that once served as the zeal of my death. Those bones are now rising and standing as a mighty army of the Lord in attention, awaiting the new instructions for an irrevocable call. God did not stop loving me; God did not give up on me! The rainbow still decorates the sky after my storms, announcing that it is not over, that it is just the beginning. This journey will be extraordinary and victory is certain.

I am more than an over comer, not because of me, but because of Him who is mighty, loving and merciful. To HIM and only to HIM be all the glory and honor and power forever and ever AMEN!

  1. My brother, we never need be ashamed of the scars that life has left us with. The scars just mean that the hurt is over, the wound is closed, you endured the pain, and God has healed you!!! Jesus wasn’t ashamed to show Thomas the scars. God has sent His word and healed YOU! The Word continues to be made flesh. Glory to God! I rejoice with you and your new found family this Christmas season. Great is this mystery of Godliness (I Tim. 3:16);

    Love you much my brother and your family………………
