I will rise, stand redeemed, Heaven open over me.
To Your name eternally, endless glory I will bring.
Last night as I helped lead that song for our evening worship service, I felt something come over me in a remarkable way. I realized that despite the struggles I have gone through and the ones that I'm still going through, that I will rise. That He has redeemed me. That in those moments when I'm worshiping Him, that Heaven has opened over me.
It can be hard to stand up time and time again. And after so many attempts, it's even easier to want to just give up. It's in those moments that I have to remind myself that I am redeemed. That I'm not who I once was. That God looks down and sees me in my brokenness and my messiness and chooses me anyways. He chooses to draw near to me. Even in the moments that I don't really want Him to.
I encourage you to stand back up. You can rise and be redeemed.
If you can't do it alone, then please, take my hand. I would be honored to take this journey with you. It's hard. And it's uncomfortable a far majority of the time. But there is such beauty to be found in those moments.
You aren't alone in these moments. You were made for these moments. You don't walk them alone. Let us walk with you.
As always you can keep up with me over at ohhaiiitsbrandii.wordpress.com
Until next time,
