Lord I believe, help my unbelief.

"Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."

Isaiah 30:18-21

5683


"Thus says the Lord of hosts, I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, that you should be prince over my people Israel. And I have been with you wherever you went and have cut off all your enemies from before you. And I will make for you a great name, like the name of the great ones of the earth. And I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, so that they may dwell in their own place and be disturbed no more. And violent men shall afflict them no more, as formerly... And I will give you rest from all your enemies. Moreover, the LORD declares to you that the LORD will make you a house. When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom... my steadfast love will not depart from him... And your house and your kingdom shall be sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever." 2 Samuel 7:8-16

Calm down....Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed....instead
Of running around....And pulling all your threads....and
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
But, if it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own....Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own.....Know your own name
And go your own way

And everything will be fine

Hang on....Help is on the way
Stay strong....I'm doing everything

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?

Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault
of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

Simply put, Jesus has taken you from the flock of wandering sheep. Cut off all that strives to hold you back. God promised to fulfill all of you to the utmost.

And so love,

"Go, do all that is in your heart, for the LORD is with you." 2 Samuel 7:3
