Day 4: He Won


I am tired of all of it.

When will it be over.

And then I say

"THANK YOU GOD".

Tears run down my face

as they are coming from my heart

as there is so much UN~rest all around.

UN~Rest

in the country

in neighborhoods

in families

in homes

in hearts.

And then I say

"THANK YOU GOD".

Tears are still running down my face

as they are coming from my heart

because

GOD is all WHO I have

and all WHO you have

WHO does not cause UN~Rest.

What if everyone just stopped for a second

and RESTED IN HIM~

would there still be such UN~Rest

in the country

in neighborhoods

in homes

in families

in hearts?

What if everyone just stopped for a second

and said

"THANK YOU GOD"

for CHOOSING to create every single person

in the country

in neighborhoods

in homes

in families?

What if everyone said

"THANK YOU GOD"

that YOU are

LOVE

that YOU are

PEACE

that YOU are

JOY.

What if everyone

stopped for a second and said

"THANK YOU GOD" ~

"Praise the LORD, my soul;

all my inmost being, praise HIS holy name.

Praise the LORD, my soul,

and forget not all his benefits—

 WHO forgives all your sins

and heals all your diseases,

 WHO redeems your life from the pit

and crowns you with love and compassion,

 WHO satisfies your desires with good things

so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s" (Psalm 103)

What if it started with me & you & everyone else

by taking this very second and say

"THANK YOU GOD"

would then all

UN~rest stop

in the country

in neighborhoods

in homes

in families

in hearts?

This moment is the only moment

we all have

so let's

go beyond just saying

"THANK YOU GOD"

&

LIVE IN GRATITUDE

because

GOD went beyond creating us

by

saving us all

in that one moment

of UN~Rest

when the pounding hammer

nailed

JESUS to the cross

just so we would never have to hang on a cross.

That is GRACE.

That is JESUS.

Because that is what GOD did.

So take this moment and shout

"THANK YOU GOD"

because

we all have something to shout about

even in the midst of all the UN~Rest

because that is what

"MERCY DID FOR ME" (listen to the song below)

& you & everyone else!
