confident of this very thing

IMG_3769

Dearest one,

He will do it. He will finish what He began.

He redeemed you, and saved you. He called you. He holds you evermore. I am confident, not because of you, but because of Him. He will complete the good work He began. He will work in you that which is pleasing in His sight. He will not let you go; not now, not tomorrow, not on any day until the day when Jesus returns.

Until the day when the sky splits open and the clouds roll back and you see Him face to face. Him, your Lord, your King, your Redeemer. Until the day when all you’ve ever yearned for is answered by His arrival, by His culminating Presence.

He will do it. Start to Finish. First to Last.

 He will.

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 1:6

About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and currently work at two jobs for which I'm very grateful -- part-time at my kids' school, and as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
