Walking Into Pain...

Where do I even begin with how wild this last week was???? It was one of those weeks I walked into expecting I may encounter loved ones facing heaps and mounds of pain. One of my BFF's had her second and, Lord willing, final surgery for cancer. Another BFF made the final move to live 17 hours away.

Somehow this ended up being an AMAZING week. God is so good.

Was there pain?? Yes, there was. Was there brokenness? MOST CERTAINLY. Still in that brokenness and pain there was something far greater- love, dignity, forgiveness, blessing, growth, healing...

I hope to share with you in more detail all that God is teaching me. For now it is in my heart to share a song that speaks my heart's message tonight. I don't really know why I'm posting this. Maybe it's the song some of you need to hear tonight.

Much love to you. As some of you walk into pain know you are not alone and definitely not without hope.


Call On Jesus

Verse 1:
I'm so very ordinary, nothing special on my own.
Oh, I have never walked on water,
And I have never calmed a storm.
Sometimes I'm hiding away from the madness around me
Like a child who's afraid of the dark

Chorus:
But when I call on Jesus,
All things are possible
I can mount on wings like eagles' and soar
When I call on Jesus,
Mountains are gonna fall
'Cause He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I call

La la la la la, la la la la la

Verse 2:
Weary brother, broken daughter,
Widowed, Widowed lover you're not alone
If you're tired and scared of the madness around you
If you can't find the strength to carry on

Chorus:
When you call on Jesus,
All things are possible
You can mount on wings like eagles' and soar
When you call on Jesus,
Mountains are gonna fall
'Cause He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue you when you--

Bridge:
Call Him in the morning', in the afternoon time
Late in the evening' He'll be there
When your heart is broken,
And you feel discouraged,
You can just remember that He said
He'll be there

Chorus (2x):
When I call on Jesus,
All things are possible
I can mount on wings like eagles' and soar
When I call on Jesus,
Mountains are gonna fall
'Cause He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue me (back to top first time, 2nd time finish with "when I call")

La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la-a-a
