how comforting it is to know that when i am overwhelmed, God is not. when i am confused, he is clear and calm. when all my prayers are, “hey. i don’t even know what to pray so i’m just going to sit here with you for a while,” he is near.
"I knew that I had missed,
so I braced my entire being
for the impact of falling hard,
but the next thing that happened
was I am suddenly sinking
in the oceans of God’s grace;
I am completely enveloped,
by the waves of His great love.
I am kept safe, yes, kept safe
inside His arms; I lean on His care."
"And through all of this, there is nothing, absolutely nothing. No fear, no insecurity, no doubt, no hesitation, that will ever, ever stop us. Because we are the sons of the Living God, because we are the children of the Almighty. Because we are the residents of the Kingdom of Heaven. Because we are soldiers in an army of the immortal. And when we speak life, life happens. When we speak healing, healing happens. And when we speak truth, truth happens. When we go, take what we have found, to a dead world, we’ll see it come to life again. When we take what we have found to a hopeless world, we’ll see hope come back. We’ll see the heart of our world start beating again and we’ll see the color come back into people’s faces. And absolutely nothing will ever stop that. Mountains will move before us and oceans will part before us and the dead will raise before us. And the world will know that our God, is a God that heals. And our God is a God that lives. And our God is a God that loves unlike anything anyone has ever felt before. And absolutely nothing will ever stop them. Because we are fearless and because we are His hands and because we are His feet, forever and ever."
