in all things, there is {good}

there is Good

 

Do not be overcome by evil,

but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:21

     You wake up thinking that today is going to be a good day when in the end it turns out badly. And you sit down at the end of the day wondering what happened? How could everything go from being great and then go to horrible in a flash?

     You lay awake in the middle of the night, staring up at the ceiling, tears slipping down your cheeks because it’s the only thing you can seem to come up with to make you feel a little better, when in fact, it only makes you feel worse.

Is this it? Where’s the rainbow that is promised?

     You close your eyes and wait for something to happen. And then you hear a small voice whisper to you, “I haven’t left you.” You breathe in, thoughts circulating through your mind. Suddenly you feel stronger than ever. You finally feel like you can make it through this hurdle. And you can—you will.

His plans are Good and not Evil.

For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is righteous, whatever is clean, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any uprightness and if there is any praise – think on these.

Philippians 4:8

in all things, there is {hope}

There is Hope

What strength do I have, that I should hope?

And what is my end, that I should prolong my life?

Job 6:11 

Darkness finds it’s way to even the brightest places. But remember, you have a candle inside you, light, and her companion: Hope.

Hope is a small candle, sometimes it shines brightly, and sometimes it doesn’t. But it is there. It is a matter of believing and feeling it is there even when it feels as though it is not.

But I continually hope,

And shall praise You more and more.

Psalm 71:14 

But even when you cannot see hope anywhere, keep your faith, because Hope is right in front of you.

Hope is the sun that hides behind dark clouds. No matter what, it still shines bright.

 

But we who are of the day should be sober,

putting on the breastplate of belief and love, and as a helmet,

the hope of deliverance.

1Thessalonians 5:8

in all things, there is {light}

In All Things There Is Light

He has redeemed my being from going down to the Pit,

and my life sees the light.

Job 33:28 

There is a candle inside of you. Feel it? This flame burns 24/7, it doesn’t go out unless you let it. Sometimes it burns ever so brightly, and then there are times when it barely flickers.

There is a fire inside of you, like a furnace that must be fed to keep it alive. Sometimes it is barely giving any heat, that you don’t even feel as if there is anything there.

For with You is the fountain of life;

In Your light we see light.

Psalm 36:9 

 

 It burns, this light.

Some days, it almost extinguishes.

But It Is There.

The people who were walking in

darkness have seen a great light;

upon those who dwelt in the land of

the shadow of death a light has shone.

Isaiah 9:2 

 

The sun shines bright—it never fades. At night it goes down and the moon comes out—a reflector of it’s light. Sometimes clouds come to cover the lights that give us illumination in the day and night—but they never last. The sun always rises.

The Night Always Goes Down With The Moon.

And The Day Always Rises With The Sun.

Lifting You Up

 

 

Above is a recording of my song In Your Arms, but this time on the guitar. I hope you like it!!! (:

 

 

Lifting You Up

 

Take a look at the sky, He’s watching

Somewhere beyond the horizon

He’s watching…you now

Beneath the dark skies, He’s lighting

Up the dimness with a fire

It’s glowing…it’s rising…

Waiting here, the Maker of the stars

He’s holding you near

Lift up your eyes…

The whole world beyond, where you are

Filling up the spaces in your heart

He’s Lifting you up…lifting you up

The wars you rage, you don’t have to be afraid

He’s fighting them for you

And He’s lifting, lifting you up

Turn your head around, and keep your eyes ahead

Don’t be fearful of where you’re led

You’re heart’s still beating…strong

Waiting here, the holder of your soul

He’s always near

And will never let you go…

You have a sword of fire, in your hands

Remember the promises of His plans

Keep holding on, keep holding on

Take a look at the sky, He’s watching

Somewhere beyond the horizon

He’s watching…you now

In My Heart

In My Heart

 

I don’t know how You see

Beyond these broken pieces

That I have carelessly left at my feet

How do You see any beauty?

Or find any light where it’s dark?

How do you fix a heart?

 

Show me what You see inside me

Show me the pages of my story

The ones, where You intervene.

 -

Light of my heart, Light of my life

You shine Your love, when I can’t see

You’re never too far, for me to reach Your hand

And though I’m broken,

You keep me from falling apart

I always find, You’re here,

Here In My Heart

 

something beautiful

Something Beautiful

 

I’m a wreck

I’m a sinking ship

I’ve been down so that I can’t get up

How many times have I fallen?

How many times have I been broken?

 

I’ve got scars

I’m falling apart

And it’s all my fault

How long will it be until I learn?

How many times will You…

 

Pick me up and put me back together

Will You just hold me forever?

Will You hold me, hold me tight?

How many times will You breathe your life into me?

Though I’m torn and I’m far from where I need to be

You find me where I am

I fall into Your hands

And You take and mold me

Into something beautiful

You take and mend me

Into Something Beautiful

 

I break apart

I’ve got a broken heart

But You whisper Your love back into me

How did I go on without seeing?

Where I am, there You are…

 

And when there’s nowhere that I can run to

I run to You

When I am standing in a hurricane

I know the wind and rain wont knock me down

‘Cause You are holding my hand…

 

 

{in all things there is} Healing…

there is healing

 

He bore our sins in His body on the timber, so that we, having died to sins, might live unto righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

1Peter 2:24 

 

Pain lasts for a while, but with His Healing, we wont have to live with it forever. He heals us. He has the power to heal sickness, brokenness, everything.

 

He wants YOU to come to him for healing.

Yes YOU. He can touch your heart. He can stitch you back together and make you better than you were before.

 

He doesn’t want you to suffer. He wants to love you! So let Him put all your brokenness away and make you brand new.
