This is Your Life

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
And in His word I do hope. ~ Psalm 130:5

This is Your Life

Sometimes life is harsh
Often it is cruel and unkind
But this is not God’s desire for you
He has so much more in mind

Yes, people will hurt you
They will betray and victimize
Those you love most will turn their back
Leaving you feeling empty inside

It is so easy to get lost in the pain
So tempting to ignore the emotions
Will you allow yourself to become bitter and cold
Walking numbly through life, going through the motions

The choice is ultimately yours to make
Choose a life that is miserable, harsh, and empty
Or a life full of richness, beauty, and joy
No matter your choice there is no guarantee

Life comes with no refunds or exchanges
Instead take the bad with the good
Continually searching for what is right
Moving beyond what can be understood

Take the time to admire the beauty that surrounds you
God’s glory and miracles are everywhere you go
For when life becomes dark, and the light seems to be lost
Remember, God has many blessings and lots of love to bestow


In this life there is pain and heartache, destruction and evil. But what man seeks to destroy, God can renew. What sin seeks to crush, God can rebuild. What evil seeks to devastate, God can bring hope! God is the God of miracles. He can restore what has been lost and heal what has been broken. Let God in. Give him the chance to transform your painful past into a beautiful and promising future. With Christ all things are possible.

But the people who trust in the Lord will become strong again.
They will rise up as an eagle in the sky;
They will run and not need rest;
They will walk and not become tired
Isaiah 40:31


Spirits crushed, soul abandoned
Deep within the cocoon
Where do you begin?
Is there light?
Perhaps a ray of hope to heal the hurt inside?
Anguish lurks in the abyss of the heart
But still the beauty strives within
Longing to escape
To be free from the pain
Let God in
He’s calling you
Allow a chance to trust
Accept the change
Fight for freedom
Fly free
Soar above the pain
There is hope where God resides
To transform the devastation
Into the beautiful butterfly
