“Restore us, O Lord, and bring us back to you again! Give us back the joys we once had!” (Lamentations 5:21 in the New Living Translation of the Holy Bible). I’ve always had a fascination and appreciation for individuals who can restore antique furniture to its original grandeur. A battered, worn and heavily used piece is lovingly and painstakingly returned to the beauty of its unique design. If you need a spiritual restoration today, put your life in the hands of the Master Craftsman. He is willing and waiting to turn your sorrow into joy.
Prayer: Jesus, I need You to renew and restore me today. I am so thankful You do not cast me aside as useless. Instead You refinish my life and show what I am capable of becoming in the hand of the Master Restorer.
