I see You in everything
So I know I am not alone
I know that You will call me home
Can You show me a better way
To live my life
All for Your grace
I want to take hold of You now
To just find out
How to be a better person
How to make You proud
You say that You are with me
And there’s no end to
Unfailing love everlasting
Passion and persistence
I wish I could do it for You too
So I will give You praise
I will give you all
Of my heart still beating
I have heard You in the distance
The distance is in me
When we’re close I can feel You
When I’m far I need You
You are in everything
Remember that the little things which bother you now are exactly that: little. Even if your problems are weighing you down, even if cumulatively they seem impossible to face, even if you are completely overwhelmed and your mind is wreaking havoc on itself, you will not always feel this way. This is temporary. Remember that.
Take a few seconds to breathe, re-evaluate your situation (maybe your attitude about the situation as well), and just look up. Be reminded of who is on your side. Consider how powerful and flat-out inspiring the one who created you is; and you get to talk to Him personally. You get to be honest with Him. You get to ask him questions; ask Him for the things you want and need directly.
The same creator of all your favorite flowers in your garden, every ocean and every creature within them, the tall trees which have withstood years upon years of storms; He created it all for you. For us. He created you for a purpose. And that purpose is one much bigger than any problem in front of you right now because your purpose has the potential to create better longer-lasting effects than your problems ever will, if you so let it.
Let go if you must. Embrace challenges. Let them be reminders that you’re on your way to something better, that maybe this is for a reason bigger than you can see right now, that things will definitely feel better again.
Be fearless for what you may lose,
Because to gain eternity is greater.
Decide to see
Every passing moment as as thing of
The work of a passionate artist.
Think harder about
Why your body feels so much
And your thoughts are in constant expansion.
Your growth is not your own doing,
Is a gift.
