"Sisters, if we are feeling weighed down by our circumstances, maybe we need to cry out to the Lord: “Restore unto me the joy of your salvation.” (Psalm 51:12)
Maybe what the Lord had to say to the church in Ephesus is for us today, too: “I know that you have persevered and endured hardships for the sake of my name, and you have not grown weary. But I have this against you: You have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember then how far you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first.” (Revelation 2: 3-5a)"
Have you ever asked the Lord to restore to you the joy of your salvation? What did that look like?
Have you in some way or another abandoned the love you had at first?
What would it look like for you to remember how far you have fallen, repent and do the works you did at first? What would it look like for you to return to your First Love?
