A PLACE IN THE COUNTRY

A place in the country…

Is where I want to return to be.

It feels just like home to me.

The grass between my toes

Brings back memories of not so long ago.

When life was a much simpler time

And a sense of wonder was all mine.

Through my childhood years and into my youth

It was here that I found my God and Truth.

Growing in Faith and in the knowledge of His Word

I learned to depend and trust solely on the Lord.

While walking through these fields that I have returned

I have never forgotten the lessons that I learned.

I can still feel the gentle breeze of His love upon my face

The trip back to the country was more than just a kind embrace.

God’s grace is still abundantly present in this place.

Blessed with Grace and Joy

His Grace is like the wind,
Breath and life ascend.

Flowing freely on a gentle breeze
Releasing the debt of sin.

Eyes that can now fully see.
Forgiveness granted to
All those who Believe.

Rising through the air
Far and reaching wide to declare,

That Jesus gives us His amazing grace,
Which brings comfort to embrace.

Our blessed hope,
Our strength,
Our Savior;
Declared Worthy
we have found favor.

In His sacrificial love thereof;
our spirits are warmed by thy promise
of heaven above.

Bringing to our hearts which He faithfully employs
Awakening us to an abundance of joy —
Here on earth and for all eternity forevermore.

Salvation provided to whosoever will.
A gift freely given; graciously awaiting
all those even still.

Jesus died to prove His love.
The debt of sin paid for in full
by His precious Blood.

For whenever we feel lost
We can look to — The Cross,

And be reminded that
nothing can ever replace or destroy
His atoning sacrifice,
which proclaims that our lives are
Blessed with Grace and Joy.

THERE IS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR PAIN

There is a purpose for your pain…
Yes… no truer words ever spoken!

For much of my life I have experienced enormous suffering and pain. And I know I’m not alone in that. Many of us wear our scars like a badge of shame. And no matter how much we try we simply cannot not find that healing we all long for.

But.. for me there has been one constant truth during all my suffering. And that is that God loves me. That was as true yesterday as it still is today. He doesn’t see me with eyes of shame. When He looks at me He sees me. The beautiful person He fearfully and wonderfully created. He looks at me with love, compassion, mercy and grace.

What I have come to realize during my life journey is that during all the immense pain and heartache… He has been preparing me.
All this time .. He has been..
Leading me.
Guiding me.
Strengthening me.
Filling me with His wisdom.
Giving me a spirit of discernment.
Instructing me and teaching me how to live in obedience to His Word.
Renewing my mind, soul and spirit with His Truth.
Instilling in me a new found confidence that can only be found in Him, so that I am able to rise above the challenges and the struggles that I face.
Freeing me from all guilt and shame.
And showing me how to claim victory over my life.

And most importantly…
Just simply loving me as His beloved daughter.

For I know my struggles aren’t without a purpose.
God has a perfect plan for my life and for yours.

We need to learn how to recognize that through all the pain and suffering, there are lessons to be learned. And that often times, God is trying to teach us something within ourselves.

Remember to always stay true to your faith. Keep God and His Word close to your heart. Lean on Him for His strength and guidance. He will never fail you.

Learn from the storms in your life and decide to allow it to make you stronger, better and all the more wiser, not bitter for having to go through it. And in time you will realize…

There truly was a purpose for your pain…

God Bless You!
