To overcome is to write a new song.

To overcome. That is our song.

We overcome by lifting our eyes and having conversation with God.



O God,  You know …

what a mess I can be …

pour out Your grace.

Undeserved, it’s true, but I ask Lord Jesus, Forgive me. Touch me. Heal me inside. You can see every part of me, I will no longer hide.

I want to move past where I am today. Never to look back. Never. For always.

In Your mercy, dear Jesus, fill me with Your love. That with each step forward  I move like You – unconditionally, without conditions, with every breath I take, high as the heavens, Your love conquers all, these are the steps I now make.

This world is a rude place. I’ve been part of its rudeness. But today is all new, You’ve cleansed my dark heart. Thank You Lord Jesus, for giving me my breath. I breathe in new. I breathe in life. I breathe in hope.

In You I rest, I lay down my strife.

This is my prayer of brokenness today, that the light of Christ might shine like the dawn, in my broken but redeemed life  in some way. “Today, Today!” That is Jesus call.

“I come Lord Jesus! I come, after all.”
