*RESTORATION BUSINESS

Isaiah 58:11 “The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
11 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”
(NIV)

************

*God is in the RESTORATION BUSINESS,
Master Builder…is He;
Mending lives…all but destroyed,
Helping us to be…all that we can be.

Is your life falling apart,
Or like a ship…at sea…adrift?
Totally destroyed…in need of help,
And, that help…O please come…swift!

You’ve made a lot of bad choices,
Started off down the wrong road;
A pattern has been set…by you,
And now, you must carry that heavy load.

There is no turning back,
The dye has been set;
You try to change your course,
Still, farther down…you get.

Then, comes the day of reckoning,
We can’t turn back…nor go ahead;
We’re at an impasse…now,
All there is…just a total dread.

*God is in the RESTORATION BUSINESS,
Master Builder…is He;
Mending lives…all but destroyed,
Helping us to be…all that we can be.

When all else has failed,
And, we are at our wit’s end;
We can call upon His mercy,
With ourselves…no longer to contend.

If we could mend our bridges,
And, tear down walls we’ve built;
We would have done it long ago,
Now, we are riddled through…with guilt.

The lines that we have drawn,
The patterns and the maps;
Now, come back to haunt us,
To us…they have become traps.

Relationships have suffered,
We’ve torn-down the building blocks;
Trust and confidence…eroded,
Perhaps it’s time to take stock.

*God is in the RESTORATION BUSINESS,
Master Builder…is He;
Mending lives…all but destroyed,
Helping us to be…all that we can be.

We’re on the way…’tis true,
But…we’re going nowhere;
Just spinning our wheels,
Now, our tires are worn bare!

We need someone to come along,
To come along-side;
Throw up your hands…declare,
“I’m getting off this ride!”

Complete surrender…surrender,
And, wave that big, white flag;
“I cannot do it on my own,
I’ve run into too many snags.”

Just what He has waited for,
Now…He will come along-side;
A new life we’ve been given,
Now…He will be our Guide.

*God is in the RESTORATION BUSINESS,
Master Builder…is He;
Mending lives…all but destroyed,
Helping us to be…all that we can be.

First He will cut away,
All that is rotting and decayed;
Then, He will build again,
And that…without delay.

He will build new bridges,
Bridges to connect;
And, walls that will include,
Not walls that reject.

The lines that we have drawn,
These are gone…too;
The patterns and the maps,
Erased…and made anew.

The building blocks put into place,
Relationships are being restored;
Trust and confidence…increase,
As our Master Builder restores.

*God is in the RESTORATION BUSINESS,
Master Builder…is He;
Mending lives…all but destroyed,
Helping us to be…all that we can be.
