When the heart is overwhelmed
When I cannot hear your voice
I’ll hold on to what is true though I cannot see
If the storms of life they come
and the road ahead gets steep
I will lift these hands in faith I will believe.
I’ll remind myself of all that you’ve done
And the life I have because of your son.
Love came down and rescued me Love came down and set me free
I am yours
I am forever yours
Mountains high or valley low
I sing out and remind my soul
That I am yours
I am forever yours.
I was super edified after listening to a couple’s story. Their sharings’ were honest, lovely and enlightening. I was amazed by how they choose to live in Gods will- surrendering all their problems and worries to the Lord with so much faith and it inspires me. To want to be like them, living their lives in full hope of the Lord’s promises for them. All that they face, struggles and difficulties, they learn and grow together, like how marriage is a vocation, it is something that you are called to- in obedience to the Lord.
Not how the world thinks marriage is or with an end goal in mind- to have a blissful marriage, a married life, have children, companionship, etc. But marriage itself calls both a husband and wife to many things. Only when both make an effort to surrender their lives to the will of God- will they find fulfillment. What matters most is how they should come together in mutual understanding and acceptance of one another’s viewpoint, which they themselves may not entirely agree with- and the act of dying to self shows love beyond one’s own selfish needs.
Each person has a vocation that God has called us to be. What makes life count is how we choose to walk in faith- every single step of the day- In obedience and trust. Start developing your relationship with Jesus today and allow Him to reveal Himself to you.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” – Matthew 6:33
Have no fear, He says, for I go before you always, walk with me, and I will give you strength, not from self but therein lies from God the Father, the holy spirit, the angels, the saints, your guardian angels and the many brothers and sisters in Christ who gives you hope, courage and faith.
“You have been set apart as holy to the LORD your God, and he has chosen you from all the nations of the earth to be his own special treasure.” – Deuteronomy 14:2
“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” – 1 Peter 2:9
“But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them.” – 1 John 4:4-5
