It is those places of which you are most ashamed and want to bury in the past, that I the Lord God am redeeming. I am taking those places and turning them from a pit and trap, into a door of hope.
Just as fresh snow covers and transforms the landscape, so I am transforming your life. Rejoice, for I redeem and make you pure. Your past offers hope to the discouraged. Rejoice and look up, for I AM your Redeemer! Live!
I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt. (Hosea 2:15 NIV)
