Jackhammer

I had a few moments this morning while waiting on an appointment. As I sat in my truck,ipod on shuffle, Rita Springer's "I have to believe" hit my soul like a jackhammer. 

"I have to believe that He sees my darkness. I have to believe He knows my pain
I have to lift up my hands to worship, worship his Name"

"I have to declare that He is my Refuge I have to deny that I am alone
I have to lift up my eyes to the mountain, that's where my help comes from"

Now, I don't expect that this will impact everyone the same as it did me; I believe it was a rhema word for me - a right now word that the Holy Spirit slipped into my spirit at just the right time. I'm always amazed at the gprace of the Holy Spirit. In the midst of our busy lives, I believe He goes out of His way to speak to us and convey His love and care.

Maybe you can use a word of encouragement today. Perhaps circumstances have brought you to a place of weariness. Every good soldier of the Lord gets tired of the fight now and then. Perhaps, too, I'm only writing out of a need for catharsis. In any case, I offer the chorus as a final word of comfort:

"He said that He's forever faithful. He said that He's forever true.
He said that He can move mountains, He can move my mountain, He can move your mountain  too."

Sometimes when the battle grows long - when the doctor's report remains bleak - when it seems like you'll never find a job - when your checkbook continually mocks you - you just have to believe. I just have to believe: Our God is faithful.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I read this at the perfect time. God always knows when to show me things like this piece you wrote. I've been weary lately with some things but God is seeing me through it all. You tied it all in very well with the song also.

I think you did at delightful job on this piece. I could totally understand where you were coming from. Some people call those things coincidences and my heart aches for them. I call them my personal I love you from God. It is so amazing when that happens. I have just a couple of tiny things you may want to check. Be careful when quoting songs that you aren't violating any copyright laws. Most of the older hymns are in the Public Domain, but the newer ones, you're only allowed to use a small amount without getting permission from the author. You also may want to let your story set a day or two because often fresh eyes will pick up typos like gprace instead of grace. I thought your ending was such a nice wrap up. It is so vital in these days when everyone is busy, to use time to commune with God. Something like smiling at the checkout clerk may seem inconsequential to you, but could mean the world to here. We have the ability to spread God's love with just a smile. Your devotion left me with a smile and a warm place in my heart. Thank you for sharing.
