You satisfy my soul.

You satisfy my soul

You satisfy my soul 

You satisfy my soul

With Your love

You make my heart sing

You lift me on eagle wings

Just when I thought my heart, it would faint

You take the darkest night

And You turn it to shining light

Just when I thought the night had won

Hallelujah, You make all things beautiful

Hallelujah, trials and testing prove there’s gold

Hallelujah, You turn mourning into joy

James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Oh Lord, indeed You are faithful by speaking truth into my life through Your Word. Indeed the Scriptures are a light unto my fumbling feet, and lamp unto my uncertain paths. How gratefully amazed I am, seeing Your mighty hand upon my life and glaring faithfulness in the midst of a hurricane.

Oh Lord indeed You will and have never forsaken me. You remained faithful even when I was not.

Oh Lord if You have persevered to the Cross for me, what should stop me from persevering to the ends for Your glory to be revealed on earth?

Do Not Lose Heart.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. (2 Corinthians 4:16)

It can be tempting to think that the defining moments of our lives happen on stages, in front of camera’s, in our best outfit, when people are paying attention – heroic moments, important speeches, poetic words, generous deeds – done for all the world to see and give us an acceptance check. But the defining moments of our hearts and spirits happen in much darker quieter spaces and times, often when no one is watching – no one is applauding. And its not the moment you win the battle… its not the moment of glory or victory that defines you. Its the moments you fall down but get back up, its the moments you crack but allow his grace to shine through, its the scary terrifying times where you let his peace reign in your heart, when failure kicks you down but his unending enduring love compels you to get back up again – weak but strong, sinner yet saved, lost now found. The defining moments happen behind closed doors, in prayer closets, on knees, in worship, alone and contrite… The challenge is to embrace it, Don’t loose heart. Allow the Holy Spirit to work his deep healing and destiny infusing work within you. I know that my life will not be defined by one glorifying history making moment… it is defined long before I do anything seemingly ‘important’, in the challenging, failure riddled, opportunity beckoning moments in the unseen… What happens there is far more valuable than glory or fame can ever be. So don’t lose heart. Even though your outward man is perishing… lean in, trust in Jesus – your inward man is being renewed day by day… and a new day will come.

The following are excerpts from John Piper’s Desiring God, Meditations of a Christian Hedonist:

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot loose.” – Elizabeth Elliot, Shadow of the Almighty; The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot.

“Most men are not satisfied with the permanent output of their lives. Nothing can wholly satisfy the life of Christ within his followers except the adoption of Christ’s purpose toward the world he came to redeem. Fame, pleasure and riches are but husks and ashes in contrast with the boundless and abiding joy of working with God for the fulfillment of his eternal plans. The men who are putting everything into Christ’s undertaking are getting out of life its sweetest and most priceless rewards.” – J. Campbell White, Secretary of the Laymen’s Missionary Movement.

On December 4, 1857, David Livingstone, the great pioneer missionary to Africa, made a stirring appeal to the students of Cambridge University, showing that he had learned through experience what Jesus tried to teach Peter:

“For my own part, I have never ceased to rejoice that God has appointed me to such an office. People talk of the sacrifice I have made spending so much of my life in Africa. Can that be called a sacrifice which is simply paid back as a small part of a great debt owing to our God, which we can never repay? Is that sacrifice which brings its own blest reward in healthful activity, the consciousness of doing good, peace of mind, and a bright hope of a glorious destiny hereafter? Away with the word in such  view, and with such a thought! It is emphatically no sacrifice. Say rather it is a privilege. Anxiety, sickness, suffering or danger, now and then, with a foregoing of the common conveniences and charities of this life, may make us pause, and cause the spirit to waver, and the soul to sink; but let this only be for a moment. All these are nothing when compared with the glory which shall be revealed in and for us. I have never made a sacrifice.” – cited in Samuel Zwemer, The Glory of the Impossible; Perspectives on the World Christian Movement.

Carried for a thousand miles to show

not for a moment did You forsake me.

And every step every breath You are there
Every tear every cry every prayer
In my heart at my worst
When my world falls down
Not for a moment will You forsake me
Even in the dark
Even when it’s hard
You will never leave me
After all.

After all, You are only good.

You show me the way to life.
