I recently moved back home with my husband after being away for school for almost three years and can honestly say I was struggling with the changes. I felt as if “the world” would flood my mind as soon as I opened my eyes every morning. I had been so used to my quiet time with Jesus in the mornings and now it was everything else; putting my house in some kind of order, bills, family, friends and the list could just go on making me feel overwhelmed with what to do. This morning as the confusion was going on in my head I could hear a song playing “Grace Wins Every Time” by Matthew West, so I begin to listen.
Words can’t describe the way it feels
When mercy floods a thirsty soul
A broken side begins to heal
And grace returns what guilt has stole
And, in the shadow of that shame
Beat down by all the blame
I hear you call my name sayin it’s not over
And my heart starts to beat
So loud now, drowning out the doubt
I’m down but I’m not out
There’s a war between guilt and grace
And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof
Grace wins every time
As I am listening the Lord said, now get up, clean, do what you need to do With ME!
I had been feeling afraid that I would get lost in the shuffle. He showed me that I don’t have to fear because although my environment has changed He never will. He will never leave me or forsake me, instead He will go with me while I do all of the things I need to do, I only need to invite Him. He is so good and loving knowing everything we struggle with and is always there to help us!
