Sometimes those who have suffered the most, have the most to give.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 “ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,  who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.


Don’t be afraid of deep waters, my love
This journey’s been sent from heaven above
It is at Gethsemane you are purified
In ways you can’t see, so don’t try to hide

Lay it all bare, at the foot of the cross
Let His word cleanse you as you follow it’s path
Clinging to truth, let all else pass away
Let it burn up, it’s not meant to stay

Deep into the waters you go
Let Him enter in to the depths of your soul
Stirring up places where pain still remains
Let Him expose them and pour healing rain

Angels, Holy Spirit’s leading, miracles…..learn how God can be highly involved in an ordinary life….  true stories by Jean Chamblee

Destiny, destiny
You call my name
The answer’s not found
On this natural plane

A calling from heaven
But how can I hear
My spiritual ears
Are not sounding so clear

But wait there’s a Book
With His every thought
How my Creator, came to earth
And did talk

Maybe it’s in there
The place I should look
Instructions for life
In His very own book

There’s proverbs and psalms
And stories of men
That walked with our God
He openly talked to them

It shows their mistakes
And their successes too
How God communicates
To me and to you

He came down as man
So He could relate
Take all of our sin
On the Cross obliterate

All of the things
That stand in my way
Of knowing the God
That made me this way

He’s got the answer
I am unique
The book even shows
Through His word He still speaks

So help me now Lord
As I take a look
To find out my Destiny
Hidden in Your Holy Book.

Empty, empty your heart of it’s pain
Let the tears fall down like rain
They are a tool so long ago
Created with knowledge of how things would go

Again, you will shine like summer’s day
Your heart will light up, your smile like a ray
As your heart returns to where it belongs
To God’s arms alone where in Him there’s no harm

Come again, come again I’ll take you away
Again, we shall experience a brand new day
You know what that means, Yet this time a new
Cherished so rightly from a place made for you

I am yours and you are mine
We will be together til the end of time
Always there for you in our hiding place
That we have built while running this race

Come to me, come to me quickly you’ll see
How sadness eclipsed by life’s melody
You will sing greatly, your voice has it’s might
No longer to dwell in mistakes dark, dark night

Fiery pieces falling ‘round
The heat is plain to see
Fire brings a destruction
But not when on our knees

Beauty comes from ashes
It always seems that way
If we look up to the Lord
And let Him make night day

We must see beyond the veil
Beyond this place we are
Temporarily stuck here
But eternity’s not so far

Living in the moment
Can bring a shattered glass
Our lens must be eternity
Time passes by so fast

Everything has it’s purpose
With our Creator the secret lies
That is why we seek Him out
So hope will start to rise

Something in tomorrow
If we move forth in faith
Not an antiquated term
It’s of this makes our fate

Reaching for our Maker
Quietly we pray
Listening for His answers
On How to live this way

Beauty comes from ashes
If we take that step
To look up to the heavens
Our tears our Father’s kept

Why is pain a place of change
The burning cauldron real
Melting and then molding
Quite like a piece of steel

The emerald and the diamond
Created in the press
Pressure brings a beauty
No other way can dress

Why is there a hunger
In our heart of hearts
To become all that we can be
Even if it smarts

Pain a curiosity
And I still wonder why
It is the grandest instrument
To cause our hearts to fly
