Keep On – John 16:33

Keep On – John 16:33

Keep fighting
Keep on
Breaking through
In the darker times
Hard times
Wild times
Just keep on
Keeping on
A time will come
And remember this
Take heart
For He overcome
Overcome the world
For us
For you
For everyone
All I can ask
Is just keep on
Keeping on

In My Trouble – John 16:33

In My Trouble – John 16:33

In my trouble
I hear
I hear You say…

Take heart my child
For I have overcome the world
So all you face
Of anguish and despair
All will fail
Through the victory
That you have in me

Tests Of Time – John 16:33

Though darker days stand before
My heart will find it’s peace
Even in the tests of time
I will find a way
For trouble may come
But this will not be my end
For He who I hold on to
Has overcome this world

Peace In You

Peace In You (John 16:33)

At the end of the day
Even when this world
Has beaten me down
I find my peace in You

As the days flow
Through good and bad
In the deepest of troubles
I find my peace in You

When the world around me
Goes quiet and calm
This heart has overcome
I found my peace in You

Another One Of Those Odd Sort Of Days

So today was a return to the regular work day, back to work, with a bang so to speak.

For the second day running I was up with the alarm, no snooze button, up, changed and pounding the pavement just after 5.15.  My hip still ached after yesterday and a few blisters got a little worse, but I enjoyed it once again.  It’s nice to get back into my old routine, walking again, spending time thinking things through, rather than stewing on them in my quiet times.  Plus as I’ve said before, I need that little bit of routine and when I walked before, I felt my days were far better balanced.

It was when I got to work, things took a strange turn, quiet often the front shutters aren’t open when I get there, today was no exception, when I went to open them, I notice it looked as though the frame of the shutters had been damaged, I certainly didn’t remember them being that way when I locked up Tuesday lunchtime.  When I got inside, the first thing I asked my Boss was have we been broken into?  His immediate answer was, Yes, then proceeded to show me the rest of the damaged he found in the early hours of the morning.

They had tried and failed to get through every door, before managing to get through a barred window.  But the strange thing was after checking all the stock, it looks as though nothing was taken?  So it’s been one of those odd days, police coming in and out, forensics and alarm engineer’s, a real strange return to work for the New Year, I suppose the damage could have been a lot worse, one of the neighbouring companies was ram raided a few weeks before Christmas!

 ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’

John 16:33

So the New Year and renewed routines have started well, even if some things have been a little strange, but at least this year seems to be starting better than the last ended, I feel pretty content at the moment and quiet positive for the future!

LEARNING TO FALL by THIS BEAUTIFUL REPUBLIC
I’ve heard it said a million times
That I should hold on tight to Jesus
But I took this road 
So far from home
And distance came between us
When I walked away 
I knew one day I’d need your grace

So now You’ll find me on my knees
Surrendering ’cause I know that 
I’m really not so strong
And now I’m done fighting for control
Lord You can have this life
That I’ve been holding for so long
I’m learning to fall
(I’m learning to fall)
Let my world crumble

You ran so fast 
To rescue me
While I was barely breathing
You picked me up 
You touched my face and
I began to see more clearly
Though I’m such a disgrace
You still forgave and 
And your love remains

So now You’ll find me on my knees
Surrendering ’cause I know that 
I’m really not so strong
And now I’m done fighting for control
Lord You can have this life
That I’ve been holding for so long
I’m learning to fall
(I’m learning to fall)
Let my world crumble

Take me as an offering
I surrender everything
No more living without You

Take me as an offering
I surrender everything
No more living without You

Take me as an offering
I surrender everything
No more living without You

Take me as an offering
I surrender everything
No more living without You

So now You’ll find me on my knees
Surrendering ’cause I know that 
I’m really not so strong
And now I’m done fighting for control
Lord You can have this life
That I’ve been holding for so long
I’m learning to fall
(I’m learning to fall)
Let my world crumble
