The Sun Still Rises, by Lauren Melendez -
The Lord has been teaching me so much about how constant and faithful He is to His children, even when we fail. He never forsakes us, and that is a promise.
This all inspired a song, and I finally decided to record it. Take a listen, if you like. Or download it for free.
‘I will sing of thy steadfast love,
O Lord, for ever;
with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.
For thy steadfast love was
established for ever,
thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens.’ (Psalm 89)
Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.
Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.
Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee,
Whom in Heav’n but Thee.
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.
Mother’s Day Feast…

Cause now I see I’ll never stop this train.

How many of us have set ourselves aside as if to say, “I cannot do anything else until God appears to me”? He will never do it. We will have to get up on our own, without any inspiration and without any sudden touch from God. Then comes our surprise and we find ourselves exclaiming, “Why, He was there all the time, and I never knew it! — Oswald Chambers
The solution to both greed and heresy is this: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. What once was true about Christ always will be true about Christ, so you don’t need or want new doctrine. And what was once satisfying about Christ will always be satisfying about Christ, so you don’t need or want money as the way to lasting happiness. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever - the same truth and the same treasure. Receive him and be free. — John Piper, on Hebrews 13
God never guides us at some time in the future, but always here and now. — Oswald Chambers
This is my Father’s world,
why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King,
let the heavens ring.
God reigns let the earth be glad.
There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for. — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers (via albinwonderland)

Kayaks and Rivers.
It seems, I’m at the end of it all.
It seems, I’ve fallen further than I have before.
And nothing I do, would fix it.
And nothing I’d say would make things right.
Only Your love can make me new,
And all I can do is look to you.
I’ve failed, so many things in my life.
And yet, the sun still rises on time.
Nothing I do would change you.
Nothing I say would mess you up.
You take my failures and wipe them clean,
and simply to your cross I cling.
I’m not okay,
But You are.
I’ve been so wrong,
but Your love is strong.
