Wrote this long long time ago for a trench buddy… Chance upon it today. It’s still true. (Edited it a little)
Never once did You leave us alone.
Never once did You leave us in our hardest struggle.
Never once did You turn Your face away from us.
When we were in the darkest night and wondered if our eyes would ever see the light, You were there.
When we were in the stormy gale and wondered if we’d ever live in peace again, You were there.
You were there in the struggle.
You were there in the fight.
You were there all the time.
Scars and struggles on the way.
But with You, we will always come out as victors and conquerers.
We will kneel on our battleground and look back in our lives.
We will see God’s hand in our struggles.
We will celebrate the victories.
I have no doubts about this.
You are always closer than we know.
Always more involved and in control.
We will trust our lives to You – The One who was and is and is to come.
The faithful and just One.
The One called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.
With joy in our heart, we can say “Though this may seem to be my hardest struggle, You are here. You are in control”
Best part is… We can do this with a team.
We can run this race with a ragtag team.
Together at the finishing line we’ll say that we have fought the good fight, we have finished the race, we have kept the faith.
Was just listening to this song “Yahweh” just now… Really love this song and the lyrics..
Hear the sound of faith
When we arise to pray
Our God is with us
Feel the Spirit move
When saints arise to praise
Our God is in us
We hold on
To Your promises
Your faithfulness is true
We will stand
On Your Word that’s strong
Salvation will breakthrough
You’re the strength of our lives
Whom shall we fear
The battle is Yours
The war has been won
No weapon shall prevail
No tongue can rise against
You’re standing with us
You have the final word
Truth and grace be heard
You’re fighting for us
We trust in Jesus’ name
Nothing can stand against
We trust in Jesus’ name
We have the victory
Snippet of my Saturdays… Growing up and old with the best people on earth.
Having being made out of the dust of the ground, a human being as any other creature – a biological entity. The creature existence, however, is insufficient to describe the human being, for man becomes the crowing act of creation and is distinguished as being different – God literally breathes life into man. Unlike the rest of creation, a human being has been created in a covenant relationship to God and has an exceptionally high and distinct value and destiny. The likeness of man to the Creator is in the form and function of personal unity. God designed the human personality to consist of self-consciousness and self-determination, with both freedom and the awareness to respond to God, to other human beings and to the environment. He also designed a destiny for man far higher and nobler than that of any creature. When God said, “Let Our likeness,” He had planned from the foundation of the world a glorious future for those who would choose the redeeming grace of Jesus Christ.
From New Spirit-Filled Life Bible
God created us in His likeness. From the beginning, He has planned for every man to have a great future and a destiny. That includes you. You, yes you, have a future, a destiny and a purpose.
