The Song on Repeat.

Its 4:59 in the morning and the house is too quite. I got “forever” by Kari Jobe on the background music. The song is on its bridge now.

“WE SING HALLELUJAH, THE LAMB HAS OVERCOME”

My heart right now is jumping for praises. And I feel like I am about to cry. Yes I get emotional easily? Who’s not? When you know that the Lord has overcome? would you not be moved?

The song is now on its part where the pastor is reading a poem.

Let me just pause for a while.

“If there are words for Him then I don’t have them.

See my brain has not yet reached the point where it could form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God.

And my lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath with enough agility to breathe out the greatness of His Love.

And my voice, see my voice is so inhibited , restrained by human limits that it’s hard to even sing the praise up, you see, if there are words for Him, then I don’t have them.

My God, His Grace is remarkable, mercies are innumerable, strength is impenetrable, He is honorable, accountable, favorable.

He’s unsearchable yet knowable, indefinable, yet approachable, indescribable, yet personal

He is beyond comprehension, further than imagination, constant through generations, King of every nation, but if there are words for Him, then I don’t have them

You see my words are few to try and capture the ONE TRUE GOD, using my vocabulary will never do, but I use words as an expression, an expression of worship to a Savior, a Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise, so I use words.

My heart extols the Lord, blesses His Name forever. He has won my heart, captured my mind, and has bound them both together. He has defeated me in my rebellion, conquered me in my sin, He has welcomed me into His presence, completely invited me in. He has made Himself the object of my sight, flooding me with mercies in the morning, drowning me with Grace in the night, but if there are words for Him, then I don’t have them.

But what I do have is GOOD NEWS, for my God knew that manmade words would never do, for words are just tools that we use to point to the truth.

So He sent His Son Jesus Christ as THE WORD, LIVING PROOF, He is THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, THE FIRST BORN OF ALL CREATION, FOR BY HIM ALL THINGS WERE CREATED, GIVING NOTHINGNESS, FORMATION.

AND BY HIS WORD HE SUSTAINS IN THE POWER OF HIS NAME. FOR HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS AND ABOVE ALL THINGS HE REIGNS. HOLY IS HIS NAME!

SO PRAISE HIM FOR HIS LIFE! THE WAY HE PERSERVERED IN STRIFE. THE HUMBLE SON OF GOD BECOMING THE PERFECT SACRIFICE.

PRAISE HIM FOR HIS DEATH! THAT HE WILLINGLY STOOD IN OUR PLACE THAT HE LOVINGLY ENDURED THE GRAVE THAT HE BATTLED OUR ENEMY, AND ON THE THIRD DAY ROSE IN VICTORY.

HE IS EVERYTHING THAT WAS PROMISED.

PRAISE HIM AS THE RISEN KING.

LIFT YOUR VOICE AND SING, FOR ONE DAY HE WILL RETURN FOR US, AND WE WILL FINALLY BE UNITED WITH OUR SAVIOR FOR ETERNITY! ETERNITY!

SO IT IS NOT JUST WORDS THAT I PROCLAIM, FOR MY WORDS POINT TO THE WORD, AND THE WORD HAS A NAME, HOPE HAS A NAME, JOY HAS A NAME, PEACE HAS A NAME, LOVE HAS A NAME, AND THAT NAME IS JESUS CHRIST!

PRAISE HIS NAME FOREVER!!!!!!!!”

-Jesus is forever by Isaac Wimberley

This encounter with the Lord where I am in awe of Him. When words are not enough and tears won’t satisfy. When your heart is pumping so many emotions.

You’re just there. Remembering every single thing that the Lord have had done to you.

You’re just there wanting to say “thank you Lord” but you know that thank you is irrelevant because you wanted to say more than that.

My heart is so grateful.

There may be problems. sometimes I feel so sad. so down and so helpless

But the Greatness of God is enough that everything around me becomes shadow and what my eyes see only Jesus.

His goodness.

His Kindness.

His favor.

His Love.

And everything in Him.

Condemned?YES. 

I know how you feel. It may not be as exactly as the intensity of what you are feeling right now. But believe me when I say..

I know how you feel. 

I know how hard it is to avoid the things that’s pushing you to sin again. I have been there. I know how much you wanted to avoid it, but your flesh and lust is greater than your desire to overcome. I know how foolish you became and say that you will just ask forgiveness after.

This particular sin is eating you not little by little but as much as it can eat you at a time. I know how many times you cried and asked for help. And how depressing it is to feel paralysed and just allow sin to consume you. All of you. I know that you feel condemned right now. How unworthy you are to be called a Queen.

Trust me I know. 

There are so many questions in your head. And for each answers it wont satisfy you. 

I have been there. Many times. You cannot imagine how many times I sinned and allowed temptations to happen. How many times I allow the enemy to kill, still and destroy me. ALL OF ME

“I am a loser” “hanggang dito nalang ako” ” wala na akong patutunguhan pa”

these are the thoughts I have in my head. And each thoughts leave wounds in my heart. and this questions can be yours too.

But let me remind you something.

You are the righteousness of God. 

You are His daughter. You are Loved. You mean the whole world to Him that He even gave his only Son so He can call you His own, His Child.

A year in your life will not be enough to discuss all your sins but Your lifetime is never enough to count the grace that GOD have for you. 

10,000 times a day God is looking at you. And yes He saw you sinning. But He is looking at you with so much love.

As if you never sin. As if your perfect. 

God is not looking on who you are today. But who you will be in the future.

For you will be His Queen.

You will be willing to die just to give Him Glory.

You will do great things for Him.

You will be a woman of Faith.

A Giant Slayer. You are strong. Mindful and full of happiness.

For the old has gone. The new has come. 

What happened today won’t matter in the future. For what matters tomorrow is who you choose to become for His Glory.

Wipe those tears in your face. your mascara makes your eyebags darker.

Take a deep breath. Fight again. Smile. 🙂

Make a decision that you will not allow satan to take a hold on you. 

And last.

PRAY.

Heavenly Father. My King. My Savior

The heavens and all the earth are yours. Right now my prayer is that whoever reading this post. A Queen in a making who may be feeling down, upset or condemned. I pray that you comfort them. I pray that you remind them how much you love and care for their souls. That you have forgiven them 2000 years ago. Lord, I ask that you remind them that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. that you already made us Your Righteousness. Forgive our sins. Forgive us if we allow the enemy to tempt us to do what for sure breaks your heart. 

Thank you. For your grace that is never-ending. We promise that we will stand for you. That we will live to make you smile. We love you Jesus. 

Amen.
