Life at a standstill

…or should I say ‘blogging at a standstill’? This past week as been has been one of those weeks where life just gets put in perspective things seem to stand still. Last weekend one of my dear friends lost her baby boy. She was 8 months pregnant, and it was a shock to us all. But through this extremely difficult time we have seen the comfort, grace, and strength that God gives to His children when the most difficult things of life happen. Through the pain, God is here. And we know that my friend’s sweet baby boy is with our God. He will never know the pain and sorrow of this life; He’ll only know the joys of heaven! He is already beholding the face of Christ!… and we look forward to the day that we will join him and the other precious ones that have gone before us!

“There Will be a Day” by Jeremy Camp-

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that trys to grab
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth,
that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew

But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

I know the journey seems so long
You feel your walking on your own
But there has never been a step
Where you’ve walked out all alone

Troubled soul don’t lose your heart
Cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty that’s in store
Outweighs the hurt of life’s sting

I can’t wait until that day where the very one I’ve lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced
To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame and misery this is why this is why I sing….

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face

There will be a day, He’ll wipe away the stains, He’ll wipe away the tears, He’ll wipe away the tears…..there will be a day.
