music monday// let mercy hold you

so, you may be wandering through a season where you've been waiting on the promises God has spoken to your heart. and honestly, it's been a while and you want them to manifest already! and it seems the more you wait, the more it looks like it's taking forever for those precious promises to bloom in your life. i would know, cause He has me waiting for some beautiful things. and sometimes i wish i could wish myself away to where He's promised and be doing what He's told me i'll be doing, and be with the people He said i will be with. but winter must come before spring births a new beginning.

oh, and i know the journey also counts. there's so much lessons He's teaching me along the journey. and they can be such tough lessons. but i know i'm being strengthened and prepared for the next phase which promises to be so beautiful. so for now, i'm gonna take it a day at a time, sing my heart out, turn the weariness into wonderful written art, and keep on praying. i'm being taught patience and trust. 
this song has been a source of comfort for me countless times.

let mercy hold you~ jason crabb
when the road is winding through the darkness 
and the load is heavy as your heart is now, 
and you're full of doubt.
when your prayers are crashing into silence
and you're scared that everything you're crying out is gonna hit the ground.

every night is holding back a sunrise
every storm is shadowing a blue sky.
i know it's hard when there's nothing that you can do
just let mercy hold you.

it's in the midst of knowing that you're helpless
when you're left waiting on the promise
and you don't understand.
so let the valley teach you how to sing
and still believe grace is everything you need.
it's only here, you'll see.

that every night is holding back a sunrise
every storm is shadowing a blue sky.
i know it's hard when there's nothing that you can do

there's a cross reaching to the furthest place
there's a love nothing in the world can change.
in it all, one thing will carry you through
so let mercy hold you.

joy is coming in the morning, you just gotta wait for the dawn to break
joy is coming in the morning, don't lose hope.

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

"the Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer, my God is my rock, in whom i take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold." psalm 18:2

"the Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. my heart leaps for joy, and with my song i praise Him." psalm 28:7

"but let all who take refuge in you be glad, let them ever sing for joy. spread your protection over them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You." psalm 5:11

" not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." nehemiah 8:10

with each waking morning and drifting eve, i know i'm climbing out of the valley to the mountain top. no matter how slow the pace, i will keep on moving in Christ. every day that passes by moves me a little closer to sweet bliss. if you're in a valley waiting on the Lord, be courageous. do not lose hope.

xoxo, gen delali
