music monday// His daughter

Mistakes in this life are bound to be made. Sometimes we’re tricked into thinking choosing our own way, our own path apart from God is going to bring us fulfillment. Other times we throw ourselves into messes, thinking it’s going to drown out the initial pain we were carrying…only to be left more weary with marks of madness.
 Oh, but the Lover of our souls is always ready to accept us with all of our brokenness. Jesus is calling and waiting for us to do life His way. And even when things fall apart, the Master Weaver knows how to weave the pieces together and create a lovely tapestry of testimonies. Maybe you’re dealing with the aftermath of abuse…maybe you strayed to find comfort in men, and that didn’t turn out great…maybe you mismanaged your funds and your account is swept clean, down to the dregs…maybe you’re facing divorce or the effects of your parents divorce…whatever it may be…when we run to the Healer, He has got to have a way of turning the ashes of your situation to beauty, He’s just got to. We need to trust and give things some time.

His daughter~ molly kate kestner
“Everything’s gonna be alright”
She whispers to herself
She was only 6 years old that night
As she hid behind that shelf
Cause daddy had a little too much to drink
And mama didn’t want her to feel the pain she felt
But she still felt the pain

Well 10 years they came and went
And dad was gone
So she looked for love in other men
And tried to act strong
Oh, broken hearts and scars in only places she could see
Cause she just wanted, she just wanted to feel something

And as she sat there on her bed
Thinking ‘bout what those girls said
Tears streamed down her eyes.
She cried…

if there’s a God out there
Please hear my prayer
I’m lost and I’m scared
And I’ve got nowhere else to go.
I’ve come a long, long way
But I’m not sure I can make it much farther
So if you’re listening, could You give a helping hand
To Your daughter

Well, her path started to change
She reached out and grabbed God’s grace
And finally, she saw a light
Until that night
Where she decided one drink was alright,
And one thing led to another
Next thing you know, 9 months go by,
She’s a mother

And as she laid there in that bed
Stroking that small angel’s head
Tears streamed down her eyes
She cried…

if there’s a God out there
Please hear my prayer
I’m lost and I’m scared
And I’ve got nowhere else to run.
I’ve come a long, long way
But I’m not sure I can be the best mother
So if You’re listening, could You give a helping hand
To Your daughter

Well that baby grew into a boy
Who became her pride and joy
He loved her like no man could
And her heart felt peace,
cause she finally understood God’s love

so as she laid there in that bed,
99 years old
She grabbed her son’s hand and said
“there’s something you must know…”

There is a God up there
Who heard my prayer
I was lost and afraid
And I had nowhere else to go
I had no clue what to do
And then He sent me you

So if you’re lost and afraid
And you feel so alone
Don’t worry child,
Cause there’s a Father who will love you as His own
Just like He loved His daughter
Like He loved His daughter.

Remember the prodigal son who squandered his inheritance? “‘…so he got up and went to his father. but while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms round him and kissed him…’” luke 15:20

“I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who do not need to repent.” Luke 15:7

“and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

Are you starving for affection? Please, don’t run to the wrong people and places. Run to Jesus. How? Read His Word and find what He says about you. How He says He loves you with an everlasting love….sing His truth over your soul…talk with Him…surround yourself with genuine, Jesus loving people who’ll speak truth into your life.

And I know, sometimes you don’t feel His love. but trust me, His love is constant, just like the sun. no matter how much we mess up, when we bring the broken pieces to Him, He knows what to do. Ours is to believe and be patient for the beauty that rises out of the brokenness. Jesus came to bring the lost into the kingdom of Heaven, He came to help those who admit they don’t have life figured out. He’s always calling us to Himself. And let’s be intentional to pursue Him when we run to Him.

xoxo, gen.
