🎶“In the flash of a moment when everything changes, if you’re not holding on tight it can be dangerous. The heart is like glass, fragile to break. You can feel strong until you lose all your strength.”
For me, that flash of a moment happened eight years ago. A traumatic event in my family ripped my emotions to shreds, leaving me a blubbering, hyperventilating mass of brokenness.
Until God spoke.
🎶”I will remind my soul hang on and don’t let go. It’s always dark before the light starts to shine. Down in the valley low, there’s still a greater hope. He’s always in control, He’s always good.”
Hope stirred again at the sound of His voice. He sat with me in my distress, wrapped loving arms of comfort about me, and poured out peace until a calmness I could not otherwise have experienced flooded my soul. He reassured me with His presence that He was in control, I was safe and not walking through this storm on my own. I was able to extend forgiveness beyond my former capacity, and experience a freedom which could only come from the hands of a loving Father.
🎶”Nothing’s for certain, chaos can happen. But there is a peace that’s beyond understanding. I can sing in the storm, find songs in the fire. See every chain break when I run to my Father.
🎶My God is good, good, so good – that will never change. My God is good, good, so good – pain won’t steal my praise.”
📖May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope! (Romans 15:14 MSG)
