There is more
More than all this pain
More than all the falling down
And the getting up again
There is more
More than we can see
From our tiny vantage point
In this vast eternity
There is moreThere is more than what the naked eye can see
Clothing all our days with mystery
Watching over everything
Wilder than our wildest dreams
Could ever dream to be
There is more...

Some say we need a miracle
Some say there's no hope at allbut I know that Your love is strong
You must, You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through
Well forgive me, forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

"Someone always pays a price when forgiveness happens. There is a price that has to be paid." -Brant Hansen
Do you make them pay for what they have done?
God's been teaching me much on this subject. And inside I have felt that feeling welling up inside of me indignant and upset because I would much rather at times let the other person pay the price for their own actions. That would be fair!
Life is confusing. And I find the older I get the more confusing it becomes.
I come to find out-- that apparently even though I am not 5 anymore--there is still mentality in females that females are better and males think--well that males are better.
I have an announcement ladies and gentleman...
Men can be really stupid.
But guess what...
Women can be really stupid too.
Shocker I know.
Fact is that--people can just be stupid.
All humans at one point or another in their short lives--make some dumb decisions.
Grant it some more than others.
But we all do it.
God loves us all anyways.
You see all of the pieces
But I see a life I can mold
You see a bunch of blank pages
But I see potential untold
Before you give up
Before your heart breaks
Open your eyes to this picture of grace, and just...
Slow down, take a breath in this moment
Leave all the worries you're carrying
Be still in the midst of this madness
Let go of all that you fear
'Cause I've already set your heart free
So leave all the changing to me
You see the doubt and the questions
But I see the wrestling with faith
You see someone worth nothing
But I see someone I can save
Life is a long road
So hard to follow
You feel like you'll never win
Just trust in my love
And let me take care of the rest
So you can begin

And I need the courage to carry on, 'cause I can't see what's ahead
And there are places I've wished I could be, battles I've wanted to win
Dreams that have slipped through my hands
I may never get back again
Oh, I've lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You
'Cause You can make anything new
Sometimes I just wish we could say all the things that are easy to hear
Ignore the injustice we see and explain every unanswered prayer
But I'd rather speak honestly and wear a tattered heart on my sleeve
'Cause in the middle of my broken dreams, redemption is here
I don't have every answer in life
But I'm trusting You one day at a time
'Cause You can make a weak heart stay alive forever
this is where Heaven and Earth collide
I lift my hands and give my life
This is how my weary heart stays alive
