God Has Been Faithful

Even though it’s truly been the most difficult year of my life, this is one thing I can say for sure: God has been faithul. Often it didn’t feel like He was there, but now I see He was with me every step of the way.

Anyway, since it’s Christmas Eve, I thought I would share a song I heard on my iPod this morning. The lyrics mean a great deal to me…

 

 

 Our God is With Us
   by Steven Curtis Chapman

One of us is cryin’ as our hopes and dreams are led away in chains and we’re left all alone;
One of us is dyin’ as our love is slowly lowered in the grave and we’re left all alone.
But for all of us who journey through the dark abyss of loneliness there comes a great announcement – we are never alone – for the maker of each heart that breaks, the giver of each breath we take has come to earth and given hope it’s birth.

Our God is with us, Emmanuel, He’s come to save us, Emmanuel.
And we will never face life alone now that God has made Himself known, as Father and Friend, with us through the end, Emmanuel.

He spoke with prophets’ voices and showed Himself in a cloud of fire, but no one had seen His face;
Until the One Most Holy revealed to us His perfect heart’s desire and left His rightful place;
And in one glorious moment, all eternity was shaken, as God broke through the darkness that had kept us apart.
And with love that conquers loneliness, and hope that fills all emptiness, He came to earth to show our worth.

So rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel has come!

Have a blessed Christmas!
