For all this is true

THE PROMISE is eternal. It’s true.

For all the hurt you suffer,

for every frustration you endure,

for each second of darkness you pass through waiting for the dawn —

— you lay down a foundation.

FOR EVERY contradiction,

for every betrayal,

for any insult and injury you feel —

— your strength takes shape in the struggle.

FOR EVERY mistake you make,

for all your shame and failure,

for all your misery —

— it cuts and forms a bleeding wound.

FOR EVERY sin you confess,

for when you open up your heart to God —

— humility flows within you and from you.

FOR KNOWING that no matter what you’ve done,

or failed to do —

— the love of Christ cannot be changed.

FOR HIS broken flesh,

for his precious blood,

for every wound cleansed and cured by grace —

— the glory of God shines in your salvation.

FOR WHEN the risen Lord takes you by the hand —

— you walk upon the waters of fear and failure.

FOR WHEN the dead silence of shame and sorrow ends —

— new life bursts into an everlasting, joyful song.

. . . . . . .

In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39

  1. Dear father in heaven , I confess and confess and confess!! i have not laid down everything, because i keep picking it back up, and i fail to put on the full armour just parts! i know that you have forgiven me for my transgressions and i have tried to ultimately forgive my transgressors! I am always looking for the will that is my way because being without my precious grandson who you willingly trust to my care, and now done what you have always told me he would do and find, his missing links! he is doing just that! but his absence and the trerrible abuse that took place when he was a boy is doing the same now, the devil has a stronghold and i know you know! And i am trying to combat this demon on my own that has my daughter who is the main subject of all the backlashing sin! and its creeping into my soul!! But father, there are 7000 promises in the bible and i just know you have one in there for this situation! Only you know it all the way! you know my shortcomings and wrong decisions and wrong opinions that i am using because this demon is strong , been with her for a longtime! I do praise you for the strong glimmers of hope i see with my precious boy, and the words that are drawing me back to you, i am truly at awe and going to find my way back, please please, show mercy and bring my boy back if it is your will!!
    in you songs most precious name i pray,
