King Hezekiah was overjoyed when Isaiah told him God was extending his life another 15 years. The king was to die in the prime of his life but God had mercy.
How many of us have been granted a grand reprieve? Our lives were full of bitterness, not understanding that God was there all the time. Our existences were filled with nothingness, yet we did not know it. The anxiety and the pain of living filled us with overwhelming despair, masking how truly empty we were in reality. Then, the glorious revelation of Jesus Christ came when He "cast all our sin behind His back." The epiphany of this great act and the realization of the emptiness of our lives as he backfilled them with His love, joy, and peace became our moment of transformation.
If you have not done so, or have lost your way and are “stuck,” please consider the following: Embrace God this day. He desires to turn our nothingness into great somethingness.
