music monday// He is with you

life. such a little word-a four letter word yet it holds so much. it's up and down, joy and grief, peace and anxiety, a smooth, calm sea and a turbulent, high tide ocean. it ebbs and flows. in the midst of all of these, my anchor, my sure rock, has, is and will continue to be Jesus. the Word in flesh. 

as i sail through this uncertain sea of life, i hold His promises close to my heart, and i cling to Him for dear Life- the life filled with deep joy even in the most disturbing situation, and the life that awaits me for eternity! He is the anchor of my soul. He is with me and He assures me of it.
 i love this song cos of how it captures snapshots of different kinds of people and what they may be facing.

He is with you~ mandisa
there's a time to live and a time to die,
there's a time to laugh and a time to cry
there's a time for war and a time for peace, 
there's a Hand to hold in the worst of these,
in the worst of these.

He is with you when your faith is dead and you can't even get out of bed
or your husband doesn't kiss you anymore.
He is with you when your baby's gone and your house is still,
and your heart's a stone crying "God, what'd You do that for?"
He is with you.

there's a time for yes and a time for no,
there's a time to be angry and a time to let it go.
there's a time to run and a time to face it.
there is Love to see you through all of this,
through all of this.

He is with you in the conference room when the world is coming down on you
and your wife and kids don't know you anymore.
and He is with you in the ICU when the doctors don't know what to do
and it scares you to the core. He is with you.

we may weep for a time, but joy will come in the morning, the morning light.

He is with you when your kids are grown,
when there's too much space and you feel alone
and you're worried if you've got it right or wrong.

yes, He is with you when you've given up on ever finding your true love,
someone who feels like home. He is with you.

when nothing else is left and you take your final breath, He is with you.
He is with you.

"be strong and courageous. do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you." deuteronomy 31:6

"keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.' so we say with confidence, 'the Lord is my helper, i will not be afraid. what can mere mortals do to me?' " hebrews 13:5-6

"but the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." john 14:26

"...weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning." psalm 30:5

whatever you and i may be facing, He is with you, He is with me. He is with us. it's a truth we need to believe especially on the hard days. He promised never to leave or forsake us. He left His Holy Spirit to be with us, remember? all things are working for our good. He is with you, friend. :)
