                                                                                        Golden Sunrise 

                                                     Until at last the Spirit is poured down upon us from heaven.
                                              Justice will rule in the wilderness and righteousness in the fertile field.
                                       Righteousness will bring peace. Quietness and confidence will fill the land forever.

                                                                                 ISAIAH 32:15a, 16, 17 NLT

Christ’s reign will change godlessness to righteousness.
     Warmhearted—not steel-cold—toward Me, the redeemed will obey Me.
     Totally devoted to the King of hearts, heaven’s citizens will worship Me.

Christ’s reign will change war to peace.
     Shuttle diplomacy will never be able to settle international disputes.
     Battling with guilt? Rely on My Holy Spirit as your Defense Counsel.

Christ’s reign will change restlessness to rest.
     Impatient? Let the Prince of Peace teach you good things take time.
     Wondering if anybody cares? Let My Spirit comfort your heart.

Christ’s reign will change fear to security.
     Made right in My sight because of My Son’s work on the cross,
          relax in My Presence and look forward to sharing His glory.

Christ’s reign will change sadness to joy.
     Going through tough times? Look forward to looking back on them.
     Hallelujahs will cancel heartbreak—triumph will dry tears.

Christ’s reign will change noise to quietness.
     At last, the din of chaos will disappear in the tranquility of paradise.
     The Prince of Peace will teach saints to sing the sweet music of heaven.

Christ’s reign will change deception to truth.
     Do not listen to the Devil’s lies—he is speaking his native language.
     Be attentive to the Shepherd’s voice—follow the Way to the Truth of Life.

Christ’s reign will change anxiety to confidence.
     Losing sleep worrying about eternity? Let My Spirit encourage you.
     Listen to tomorrow’s symphony of hope—dance faith’s jig of joy today

Cross Roads Retreat Center;  Lowesville, Virginia 


                                                                                 The Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says,
                                    "Only in returning to me and waiting for me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength.”

                                                                                                       ISAIAH 30:15  NLT

Sincerely wait for Me; long for My Presence, and I promise you—
     victory over every evil enemy that would defeat you,
     unfailing love to bring security to your mind whatever happens,
     incomprehensible peace in the midst of life’s hurricanes,
     invulnerable joy no circumstances can destroy,
     the pleasure of My company to counteract your loneliness.

I am your Savior—the Source of pardon in a carnal world.
     Every breath you breathe, I am at work in your heart—
          inspiring your ambition to consistently obey My laws;
          energizing your mind to habitually do as I please.
     Conversion from evil habits to a Christlike lifestyle is My work of grace.
     Trusting Me, moment-by-moment, you become more like My Son—
          this is My dearest dream and your ultimate destiny.

I am your Shepherd—the Source of poise in a crazy world.
     Wearied carrying weighty burdens?  Give them to Me and breathe easy.
     Jittery and anxious?  Let Me teach you and enjoy peace of mind.
     Adversity University hard?  Learn by character-building experiences.
     When life is noisy, step out of the traffic—in stillness know who I am.

I am your Strength—the Source of power in a chaotic world.
     Contrary to popular belief, My power works best in human weakness.
     Empowered by My Spirit, you can be ready for whatever happens next.
     Vitally connected to My Son, you can accomplish all I ask of you.
     Holding My hand, you can survive life’s toughest situations.
     Trusting My promises, you can look forward to a bright future.
     Worn out? Exhaustion tempting you to quit the Faith Marathon?
     Wait on Me and be supernaturally reinforced—
          outsoar timidity, outrun temptation, outwalk lethargy.
     Revisit the waiting room of My quiet zone frequently—and be strong.
