Hope

Still here, friends and readers!  Ever had seasons of life where you are just barely hanging on? That’s where I’ve been living for the last month and a half.  At times our calling, work, character flaws and spiritual attacks create a perfect storm of discouragement and depression.  And it’s just hard.  Even though we know these seasons are temporary (please, let them be temporary, right?!), it often effects our productivity as our energy is focused on maintaining the basic foundations of life.  Hence my absence here on the blog.

So I just want to let you know I’m still here and my purpose remains the same: to love, care and advocate for the missions community.

Music has always been cathartic and comforting to me and I love how the Lord gives us words when we need them.  Today I thought I’d share the lyrics of a song which has been particularly dear me lately.  Maybe it will encourage you as well.  There is nothing sweeter to me right now than the truth in this song.

 

“The Faithful Love of Jesus”- Hillary Scott/Ricky Skaggs

There are arms that we can lean into
That always will receive us
An endless love of living truth
The faithful love of Jesus

I pray you know the love I’ve got
The love that never leaves us
The height, the depth
The wind, the breath
The faithful love of Jesus

Beneath our broken hearts and wounds
Where no one else can reach us
It finds a way to heal us through
The faithful love of Jesus

The light that moves
The hand that heals
The voice that speaks
The hope that’s real

I pray you know the love I’ve got
The love that never leaves us
The height, the depth
The wind, the breath
The faithful love of Jesus

Whatever season you find yourself in, I pray you know the faithful love of Jesus and lean into Him more fully.

“Wait patiently for the Lord.  Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord”.  ~Psalm 27:14.
