He's got the whole world in His hands

"And the arms that hold the universe, are holding you tonight, you can rest inside, it's gonna be alright; And the voice that calmed the raging sea, is calling you His child, so be still and know He's in control, He'll never let you go!

You can hope, you can rise, you can stand; He's got the whole world in His hands"

I absolutely love this song! It's called "Arms that Hold the Universe" by Fee!! I love the bridge so much (Which is the second paragraph of the quote) that I wrote a song with that as my chorus! This song touched me so much! The arms that hold the universe is holding me! He is in control and will never let me go! Because of that I can hope, I can rise, and I can stand! He's got the whole entire world in His hands! It's amazing to think about! It makes me so thankful to God! So, to all those who are reading this and are having tough times or aren't feeling well...to all those who need a comforter...God is that comforter! For the arms that hold the universe, are holding YOU tonight, You can rest, IT'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT!

Praise God! Thank you God!!

Lamentations 3:21-26

"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. 'The LORD is my portion,' says my soul, 'therefore I will hope in Him.' The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD."
~Lamentations 3:21-26

Our pastor preached on this passage today, and it was such a great message! He explained how the author was writing this during the deepest of hardship for the nation of Israel. He related their situation to what it was for us on 9/11, except have that feeling be drawn out for a full 2 full years instead of a few days! This hit me...I remember exactly what I was doing and the feeling I had when that all happened, and I was only 9 years old! I can't imagine that fear being drawn out over a 2 year period! This is the fear the Israelites were facing! But the author found hope in the steadfast love the Lord! This is so comforting! God's mercies are new every morning...great is thy faithfulness, dear Lord! The Lord is with us in our toughest times, and in or best times! I pray that we would all always wait on the Lord and seek after Him! It's the only thing worth living for! Thank you, Father, for being there in the best and worst of times!

Knowing you

I was at music practice tonight, and a song hit me! The song "Knowing You" really hit me as so amazing! The lyrics are so simple, but so great!
"Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You; There is no greater thing. Your my all, Your my rest, Your my joy my righteousness, and I love You Lord!"
It is such a simple message, but I think that's why we take it for granted! Knowing Jesus is such an amazing thing! We can speak to Him through prayer and His word! How amazing is that? The all-mighty creator of all things allows us to personally talk to Him, and inspired the pages of the Bible we read! He is the one who fills us with joy, and makes our joy full! And not only that, but He is our source of righteousness! Without Christ we are all hopeless sinners, heading for hell! But Christ made a way to be reconciled to God! That is the most amazing thing about "knowing Him"! That is one thing we should constantly be in praise about! Thank you, Jesus, for shedding your blood for me and all my other brothers and sisters in Christ! I love You, Lord!!
