A friend of ours, Jeremiah Jones, an amazingly talented singer/songwriter/worship leader, wrote a song called "Mighty River," the title track for his newest album.
I was listening to this song the other day, and the last line made me stop what I was doing and really hear it again.
"when fear dims the light of my vision,
when sin steals my will and resolve.
Your mercy, I will remember,
that a river of your blood ran down the cross.
You are a mighty river,
A reservoir for the thirsty soul.
My God, and my Deliverer,
You are the only One who makes me whole."
With all the bad going on in the world around us it's kind of hard not to start questioning why.
But then I remember... He knows. He knew.
His blood ran down the cross for this broken world.
It's nothing new to Jesus.
So even though it get's hard and pretty bleak sometimes, we can rely on the knowledge that God has it all under control.
Whether it's waiting on something specific in this world, or sometimes just waiting for Jesus to come back and make it all better, she's got some great wisdom and insight to hear. You should totally go grab her book and read it!
