He Speaks.

The following was in my inbox this morning. I can’t help but share it. It speaks for itself.

Praying for all of my brothers and sisters. You are all on my heart.

From Max Lucado: 

God Speaks

“Speak, Lord.  I am your servant and I am listening.”  I Samuel 3:9

We expect God to speak through peace, but sometimes he speaks through pain…

We think we hear him in the sunrise, but he is also heard in the darkness.

We listen for him in triumph, but he speaks even more distinctly through tragedy.

Lyrics Can Be Life Changing

My littlest guy turned one year this week! More about the croissant later.

I have a new post in the works.  I’ve been sitting on it for a week. In the meantime, the words below blessed my heart immeasurably the other morning when I heard them in a song.  So much so that I wanted to find them printed and share them.  I discovered that I had them at home.  My husband and I love music and sometimes I forget which artists we own.  The words were printed on the insert inside a CD.  We feel old school–we have a lot of CDs between the two of us.  I do purchase songs on itunes now.  : )  I love having the lyrics printed on the inside of a CD cover though.  When I was a kid, I loved pulling out the accordion fold insert in my cassette covers and reading through all the lyrics.

May the words penetrate your spirit and bring you joy this day.  These words speak so well of what I believe in my heart and spirit to be true according to what God has said in His Word, the Bible.  Everything that was ever prophesied or promised in His Word has either come to pass, or I believe, will come to pass. Sometimes it’s hard to wrap my human mind around that.

I WILL RISE

There’s a peace I’ve come to know

Though my heart and flesh may fail

There’s an anchor for my soul

I can say, “It is well”

Jesus has overcome

And the grave is overwhelmed

The victory is won

He is risen from the dead

I will rise when He calls my name

No more sorrow, no more pain

I will rise on eagles’ wings

Before my God, fall on my knees

And rise

I will rise

There’s a day that’s drawing near

When this darkness breaks to light

And the shadows disappear

And my faith shall be my eyes

And I hear the voice of many angels sing.

“Worthy is the Lamb”

And I hear the cry of every longing heart,

“Worthy is the Lamb”

You can read more about this in I Thess. 4-13-18 and Revelation 5:12 among many other places in the Scriptures.
