Even if

Today at Church the Pastor spoke about the troubles in the world today and how it’s okay to feel the full extent of life’s extreme difficulties that can overpower the soul with grief.

I wish we would let people be human and just love them through, instead of feeling so superior in their struggles.

He spoke about how even King David spoke to his own soul “Why, my soul are you downcast? Why, so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.” Psalm 43:5

It’s impossible not to see the sorrow at the effects of devastating hurricanes, ragging fires and cities under water. The World is groaning in pain.

I think it’s not that our brain doesn’t register that God is able or that He can work all things for our good it’s just that right now in that direct moment the pain is surging like a hurricane over the waters of immeasurable worries and faith is the land where it weakens. This is the place where fear faces the power in the wind, and it roars in an attempt at your widespread devastation and all you can do is fall to your knees and cover your life in prayers.

But the thing is God knows when the showers are too heavy and you are being pounded beneath the waves of despair. We don’t have to be afraid to yell out this hurts and to let the screams of pain open up our whole heart to Him. This is me and I’m struggling in the raging storm, knocked down on the edge of bravery’s bottom and even if you let me sink in deeper I know you are in Control.

Even if there’s toothpaste splatted all over the mirror and I am spotted in self-pity, God you see past the sticky messes of my human condition and you wash me in a grace that flows over the untidiness of all my imperfections. Even if I stay longer in this raging storm, I fall down and surrender to the One who knows my deepest fears for Your Grace is greater! Even if you leave me here and I’m covered in scars, I Love you with all my heart because You have been my God through all of it.

When you move, you move me to cries so deep within my soul and it changes me even if I stay down longer; Your Love has come to cover me.
