There are some days when we just need to lay down all of our defenses, all of our plans, all of our striving, all of our figuring-it-out strength…there are some days when we just need to remember the simplest but best of truths: you are loved. God is faithful. This earth-bound-story that we see with our eyes is not the end of the salvation He has authored, but only the beginning…and so we hope in Him. We hope in the God for whom nothing is too hard. We hope in the God who is all-in-all, first and last, beginning and end. We hope in our God of all power and glory. We hope in His compassionate heart, His mercy, His grace that carries us. We hope in His promises – oh, may we believe Him, the One who promises Light that overcomes Darkness, love that cannot be taken away, and joy that comes in the morning.
“…You, Lord, are our Father, our Redeemer from of old is Your name.”-Isaiah 63:16
“..for great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.” -Psalm 117:2
As Sure As the Sun (by Ellie Holcomb)
There is good news, there is good truth that you could never change
no matter what you do.
You are loved more than you know,
more than you could hope for after everything you’ve done.
As sure as the sun will rise and takes away the night-
His mercy will not end, His mercy will not end.
There is good news, there’s a promise that no matter where you go
you will never be alone.
In the dark, in the doubting,
When you can’t feel anything
Oh, his love remains the same.
Even through the night
Silver stars will shine
Hope of glory’s light
That will wake us once again.
As sure as the sun will rise and takes away the night –
His mercy will not end. His mercy will not end.
