Hezekiah Walker introduced the world to these lyrics:
All of my life I’ve never known You to fail
You remain the same and wonderful is Your name.
There are probably multiple Scriptures he (or the writer(s)) took inspiration from. I’m gonna be nice this time. Kinda. Haha.
Psalm 37:25 is one that comes to mind. While I was thinking of Scriptures, a lil song from back in my church camp days came to mind. I don’t know how to figure out this spacing so I’m gone screenshot it. I’m an old lady 30 something. I own it!
I’ve hinted at some family issues and said I decided to keep the details to myself. That is still true. I will say I sought help. I let people know. I may have touched on this somewhere. But, it’s necessary here too.
Nobody did anything. They made me responsible. They didn’t address my mother. They didn’t take us to my pastor grandfather. There are no words for my father. I had to suffer.
I almost said alone. But I was never alone.
The Creator. The God of the universe. The One who has a title to handle every circumstance that comes my way. He was RIGHT there.
The Bible says that to reign with Him we have to suffer with Him. I’m done being nice. 🤣😂 🗣 is your indicator to look them up.
I’m 99.9% certain that before and during my suffering I uttered those words. I also asked for wisdom 🗣. I asked what my purpose was. I’m pretty sure I probably asked know Him in the power of His resurrection and fellowship of His suffering 🗣. I know what I was talking about in Words, Words, Words firsthand.
But I’m so glad my Savior made some promises. In addition to those in the screenshot, He will take me up when my parents forsake me. Listen. All you need to know is this: That’s All They Know-Keep Building.
Oh. Now they are coming to me! I’m gonna be nice again. Lol. The rollercoaster of it all.
Isaiah 43:2. One of my absolute faves!
Richard Smallwood gifted us with a gem in these lyrics:
The hard thing about a relationship with God is the fact that we have never seen Him in person. We have to take people at their word about Him. Then we have to get in the Word to learn about Him. Then we have to experience some tough stuff to really get to know Him.
It is EASY to get caught up in the cares of life and forget. It takes work to have faith🗣. It takes work to maintain salvation 🗣. It takes work to keep your eyes on Jesus and walk on miracles while the storms of life rage all around you (hey bestie boo Peter. You’d have to dig around these posts to understand. Hahahahaha. Also. 🗣).
I told someone this: life affects everything. It can be difficult to relate to a God we can’t see due to how we have had to relate to the people we can.
That’s why building altars is so vitally important. That’s why rehearsing our testimony is so important. I keep saying it. A test leads to a testimony that is a testament to who God is. We need to recall it and share it with others so they can make it through. 🗣 It’s in Revelation.
When we aren’t focused on the Savior we can become hopeless. That’s how and why Christian folk who we look up to and admire check out of life. I mean, God refused my requests. And I refused to do it myself. 🤷🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️
We gotta look for God in all we are experiencing. Sometimes it’s harder than others. But if you put the people out, it’s easier to hear and see Him.
Go be great. We have all the help you need. We’re waiting on us. Haha.
