A path less travelled

Isaiah 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you. Be not afraid for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. And I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."


I put that verse there because it is one of the many that give such a testimony to who God is during certain times in our lives. First, He is present, and in that, He is peace and/or courage. Second, He is God, if I started this explanation, I fear for the upload time on this thing. He is strength, He is our help. Finally, He is our foundation.

This picture above, is very much like the state of my spiritual life as of date. A beautiful desperation. I am in the midst of surmounting, but I must remember how beautiful it is. "Look at the big picture." Yes, it is difficult, and there are times I can barely understand anything. But this is my journey...and it is beautiful. Christ and His presence, His peace, His courage, His very existence is the reason it is beautiful. I am beautiful, because I am His.

I finally wrote a song. One that echoes my heart...

Treasure of All

To the broken
You’re the Healer
To the empty
You restore with joy
To the blind man
You are sight
To the mute one
You ignite a passionate song

You are all this and more

You are God, Lover King
To a world who knows no peace
Gentle Father, Valiant Lord
Blessing all who call on your name
Rain down with Holy Fire,
Treasure of all

To the dreamless
Giving purpose
To the lonely
You are Friend
To the frightened
You are Peace
To the desperate
You are Life

You are all this and more

You are God, Lover King
To a world who knows no peace
Gentle Father, Valiant Lord
Blessing all who call on your name
Rain down with Holy Fire,
Treasure of all

You are all this and more
You are all this and more


Amen?
