"Make us glad according to the days in which You have afflicted us, The years in which we have seen evil. Let Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands."-Psalms 90:15-17 NKJV
Beloved, God do chastise us out of love for wrong doing and unrighteousness. He is also merciful not to cast us away entirely as He forgives and draw us to Himself again. As we purge ourselves of our unrighteousness, may the Lord replace all our self inflicted affliction with His glory and beauty in Jesus merciful name. Happy Sunday!
