Verse of the Day – Psalm 89:1-2

Psalm 89:1-2

Psalm 89:1-2

I have tried to keep singing my song, even in the darker moments of life, when the future looked bleak, despite what my mind told me, I knew I had to keep singing and praising the Father, even though the words were hard to find at times, I kept singing.

EVEN IF by MERCYME
They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now, right now I’m losing bad
I’ve stood on this stage night after night
Reminding the broken it’ll be alright
But right now, oh right now I just can’t

It’s easy to sing
When there’s nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I’m held to the flame
Like I am right now

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Well, good thing
A little faith is all I have right now
But God, when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You’d just say the word
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

You’ve been faithful, You’ve been good
All of my days
Jesus, I will cling to You
Come what may
‘Cause I know You’re able
I know You can

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You’d just say the word
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Verse of the Day – Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Yesterday I had one of those moments when I let fear become greater than my faith, I became angry with God in a way.  Then last night when I was praying, I heard the word TOIL, as though I was being instructed to keep working hard, in time I will reap the benefits of my toil.

Sometimes all we have to hold on to
Is what we know is true of who You are
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane
That could never change who You are
And we trust in who You are

Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come

Lord we know Your ways are not our ways
So we set our faith in who You are
Even though You reign high above us
You tenderly love us
We know Your heart
And we rest in who You are

Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come

You’re still the Great and Mighty One
We trust You always
You’re working all things for our good
We’ll sing your praise

Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come

You are God and we will bless You
As the Good and Faithful One
You are God and we will bless You
Even if the healing doesn’t come
Even if the healing doesn’t come

Ecclesiastes 7:14

In conversation earlier with my Pastor, I was reminded that regardless of what it is I face each day, life is still so much better now than when I first met with Gareth over two years ago.

Verse of the Day – Proverbs 3:24

Proverbs 3:24

Proverbs 3:24

I so remember those dark nights of being unable to sleep, that’s why I drank, to drink myself to sleep and escape.  But now, since that first time that I prayed, I have been receiving the sweetest sleep ever.

Why Can’t I Write, It’s My Night Off!!!!

Due to the resurfacing of one of the sports halls at the Leisure Centre, tonight’s karate classes were cancelled, which is great, I get a night off for once, I don’t have to rush down my tea and shoot off for 2½ hours of teaching, yeah, I can write, I can write loads, I can spend the night writing poem after poem, oh yes.

OH NO!!!!!

A big fat creative nothing, all day I’ve had words and phrases pinging around my head that sounded great and lots of ideas as I went about my work, I was so excited to have a night off and spend it writing.

But almost as soon as I got home I fell asleep, until a knock at the door awoke me, then after tea I watched the end of Senna, the documentary about Ayrton Senna, Ben had put it on before I got home, then I picked up one of my notepads, tried to write, nothing, then I picked up my phone, thinking I’d tap it straight into there, nothing would come together, nothing I was happy with, so I went back to sleep.

It seems if I really feel like I want to write, I can’t no matter how much I really want too, if I try to force it out it the word just won’t appear.

The only thing I can write about in these moments, is about not being able to write about something!  How stupid is that, it’s happened before and it’s happened again.  I had some great ideas, but zilch, just this ramble about not being able to write!

Like wise, having written this post, it came to the part where I would usually post a song to go along with the content, well the creativity or lack of it in my tired brain couldn’t find one to fit, so I share this one, simply because I like it and to be honest it fits with yesterday’s post: Finding The Peace From Within The Chaos, much better than this one, so please enjoy.

Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God
You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come
