When our test brings us to the valley. Rejoice. Though the valley is sometimes full of dead bones; just remember it takes only one breathe of God, to bring them to life.
When we feel as if our trials have hung us on a cross; just remember, though they put Jesus in a tomb, He rose again on the third day. It's Friday, but Sunday is coming
Jesus is praying
Judas is betraying, but Sunday's coming.
Pilot is Struggling
the counsel is conspiring
the crowd is billowfying
They don't even know, that Sunday's coming.
the disciples are running, like sheep without a Shepard
Peter is denying, but they don't know, that Sunday's coming.
the Romans beat my Jesus
robed Him in scars
They crowned Him with thorns but they don't know, Sunday's coming.
See Jesus, walking to Calvary
His blood dripping
His body stumbling
and His spirit burdened.
You see, His only prize, Sunday's coming.
the world's winning
people are sinning
and evil is grinning...
the soldiers nailed my Saviors hands to the cross
They nailed my Saviors feet to the cross
Then they raised my Savior up, next to criminals.
It's Friday but let me tell you something. Sunday is coming.
the disciples are questioning, what is happening to their King
The Pharisees are celebrating, that their scheming has been achieved.
But they don't know, that it's only Friday, but Sunday's coming.
He's hanging on the cross
feeling forsaken by his Father
Left alone and dying
Can anyone save Him? Oh, it's Friday but Sunday's coming.
the Earth rumbles
the sky grew dark
My King yields his spirit.
hope is lost
death has won
sin has concurred
and Satan is a liar.
Jesus is buried
A soldier stands guard
and a rock is rolled into place
But it's Friday, it's only Friday. Sunday is coming!"

What do women look for in men?
As I accumulated my "wish list", I started to notice something heart warming & amazing. I did have this perfect Someone. He has been right in front of my eyes for so long. A Prince who waited until I was ready to love Him, because He loved me already. Jesus was all that, plus so much more. I yearned for a Love that I already was given. All I had to do was open up and receive it. When all others left, He was still there. To pick up the pieces and put me back together.

Bye, Bye Letting go isn't always easy. We hang on thinking we could "wear" it later. Knowing when that time comes, it doesn't fit right. It really never did to begin with.
12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not yet achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

I'm so thankful for such a strong "Cord". (Eccl. 4:12). They are firm believers in P.U.S.H (Pray until something happens).

I fall so hard...
The world says: "It's BROKEN, I can't use it." Throw it away.
God Says: "I can't use it, unless it's BROKEN"
God isn't drawn to full. Only empty. (How humbling). MY strength leads me to failure. The Mighty Potter, tells me there is weakness in strength and strength in weakness. (2Cor12:9-10)
The major misconception among us believers is that God is looking for strong people. God is looking for humbled, weak people who GET their strengths from Him. The strength of weakness always begins with brokenness. When is God's grace sufficient to help me? Now. Now that I look around and there is nothing left but the grace of God. God remove what else remains, So I trust only on You.
Stop looking at your weakness and focus on His strengths.
God has used some pretty BROKEN people to do His will. Misfits you might say. God has a habit of pickin' up nobodies and making them somebodies.
Paul was a killer,
So was Moses.
Esther was a poor orphan who God used to save a nation.
Peter denied God 3X.
Yet God still reached inside of them and pulled out only what He could.
Life has done nothing to you that God can't use. If only you leave it in His hands.
I AM BROKEN
"My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made whole in weakness" (2Cor12:9)
