Sands of the Soul

Come now to your beachhead, and look upon the sands of your soul. View My endless ocean, and see My waves of love for you. I seek to make your soul smooth and your sands flat by the waves of My charity. I seek to give you peace, and cause an end to all your strivings.

But beloved, look, and come now to this sandy ocean beach, and see the state of your soul. For against you is written in the sand grievous words, and sentences of condemnation. Against you is drawn and marked words and pictures: images of shame, and signs of sorrow and guilt.

Oh child! Let My love bring you to peace, and restore your soul. There is nothing that My Spirit cannot erase. There is no sorrow that My Holy Spirit cannot undo. There is no pain too deep, nor circumstance too difficult for Me to bring victory and joy.1 I am God!

“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” —Isaiah 43:25

Dear one, I have made you, and I will heal you—yes, even your deepest cuts, and your lowest sorrows. All things are within My power. I can restore you, lo, I even long to restore you. I can do it—and if you will let Me, I will do it! No thing is too traumatic, no evil is too wicked. The worse the sin, the stronger My grace; the darker the night, the brighter My light.2 Oh My love, I groan and sorrow for you! How it is in My heart and mind to completely heal you, and utterly bind up your brokenness! I love you. Can you not feel My awesome and burning power that awaits to heal and restore? I would even die to make you whole! And I have. . .

“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;” —Colossians 2:14

Look on these grievous words that the enemy has etched into your soul; look on these bitter and pain-soaked pictures that the devil has indelled into your mind: it is only in sand! Beloved, it is I that holds the keys to your heart, and I will take away all your pain and sorrow.3 This is even My ministry to you. This is My hope and longing for you. I yearn and travail that you would come, and be healed.

Come child, and let these ugly things be washed forever away in the ocean tides of My love. Let these sandy disfigurements be flattened and smoothed into perfect peace, and lo, even joy.4

I do always send My waves to you; I never grow weary to love. I wait, and I groan for you to come and experience My restoration and tranquility. I am a beautiful island sanctuary: My waves are reaching out to you. My beloved, won’t you let Me in? I am ever-present and ever-willing to heal, for My mercy endures forever.5 My waves are incessant.

Come again, sweet child, and see if there has been built in you any stronghold of Satan. Do not swallow his dark lies: My love can make you, even one such as yourself, yes, even you will I make perfectly whole, and perfectly strong. There shall not be found a weak one among any of My children6—this is My will. Let My grace strengthen you.

Look now on this beachhead, and see if there be any strong­holds of Satan: beloved, they are but sand castles! My ocean waves shall crash upon them, and level them to the ground. I shall utterly melt them with the water of My love, and with the salt of My wisdom. The enemies’ lies shall not stand against My truth.

I will make you whole. Do not be deceived, neither be of a doubtful mind. According to your faith, so shall it be done unto you. Why doubt? I am God! Is anything too hard for Me?7 Why limit Me? When have I said, at any time, “I cannot heal such a great sickness”? Or have I ever said, “I am unable to undo such a deep sorrow, or such a grievous sin”? I am God! It is rather My delight to manifest My light into your dark places, and to show My power and grace from your weaknesses.8

My dear and beloved child, come to Me in faith. Trust in Me. Trust in My power to heal and deliver you. All you need is My Spirit. Why do you look to the blade that has cut to be made whole? Precious, let it be. Look unto Me, and be saved; for all you need is the burning love of My Spirit. Be reconciled unto Me. I am all-sufficient.9

I can make you whole. I can renew you both in body and soul. I can restore you to grace and purity. No stain is able to mar your beauty forever. I have made, and I can also re-make. I can erase the pains of your soul. I can wash away the terrible words written and spoken against you. I can erase the terrible pictures that haunt your heart. I can do all these things, and you can be made whole. Do you believe Me? I am God! Do I not care for you and burn after you continually in My heart? Have faith. I am God. I love you.

“Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.” —Isaiah 54:4
