Hosea 2:19, "And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy."
If you have ever experienced a broken engagement, suffered through divorce, death of a spouse, feeling like your current "diamond ring" is not measuring up to what was promised on bended knee - or just maybe you are still waiting for your ring... I have a word of encouragement for you! But first, a little back story:
All everyone can talk about is the Great Solar Eclipse of 2017. Especially in my town, Greenville, SC, because we are in the path of "totality." This means we will see a total eclipse. "The Baily's beads effect (Diamond Ring) is a feature of total solar eclipses. As the moon "grazes" by the Sun during a solar eclipse, the rugged lunar limb topography allows beads of sunlight to shine through in some places, and not in others." At the moment of contact the Diamond Ring will appear....whoa...whaat?!
After viewing the video I heard the Lord say, "I'm going to give you a diamond ring." It was intense. A few days of pondering this I sat down in silence. Then I began to write as the Lord ministered to my heart. I pray this encourages who it will:
The Diamond Ring
"It is known that you have had more than one diamond ring betrothed to you throughout your lifetime. As you sit here in the quiet you are well aware that you now are left with none. Some days it plagues you and the tears come as if straight through the cracks in your heart. A cruel reminder that love below the clouds is but mere mortal and weak. Not only yours, but many other hearts lay numb in the wake of broken promises and shattered covenants. Go ahead and feel the loss. Experience the longing for what was intended because I'm about to show you the greater view.
I have something to say - My Love is strong, says the Lord. There has always been something greater for you. I'm going to give you a sign of My Love. A diamond ring hung ABOVE the clouds where love is pure. A grand display as a reminder that you are Mine and you are loved. Bought with a price. I have called you by name. I am loyal and true. I am the Great I AM. The Beginning and the End. I will never leave you or forsake you. You can always count on me.
I created the moon and the stars now I will craft a diamond ring and hang it in the sky. A reminder of my expansive love for you. My reach is far and wide, yet intimate and safe. Within my arms you will find all you need. You are my beloved. Let this sign be a covenant reminder that you are here for a greater purpose. To not get locked down at ground level but to come up higher. Keep the greater perspective. Zoom out and see. Use wisdom in all things. I have placed this symbol in the sky. I am giving you a ring because I love you. You are Mine: daughter of the King, protected, comforted, embraced, and shielded."
Matthew 26:28, "For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins". I pray this ministers to you. I'm more excited to see the eclipse than ever before. I'm getting a ring from the King of Kings! Bring on the eclipse!!
