I Am Undone 


Out of the presses of pain comes the souls best wine.” ~ Unknown 

The song “Undone” by Kim Walker Smith on her latest album is this weeks feature. 

I saw the above quote on my friend’s Facebook note after she shared about a painful experience. 

My friend Alane is a gifted wordsmith and has an amazing way with words (she has also been a guest blogger before on Restored Ministries) this is her post, a beautiful note called The Prayer

In our moments of pain we must not be ashamed to share our stories.

You never know who they will touch.

Lastly, when I hear this song I am contantly reminded of Isaiah 6:5-when Isaiah cried out:

Woe is me! I Am Undone; when he saw the Heavenly King of Kings- Our Lord.

Find You Here 

I didn’t think I’d find You here- in the middle of my deepest fear…..

I love these lyrics! See image below:

God is here in the middle of the 

Lonely night

Losing fight

Deep regret

The healing that hasn’t happened yet…..

Another great song by Ellie Holcomb off Red Sea Road Album.

Wonderfully Made 

What if I saw me the way that You see me? 

What if I believed it was true?

What if I traded this shame and self-hatred for a chance at believing You? 

Another beautiful song off the latest album Red Sea Road by Ellie Holcomb.

Chain Breaker 


If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles

If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies

If you’re trying to feel the same old holes inside

There’s a better life

There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain

He’s a pain taker

If you feel lost

He’s a way maker

If you need freedom or saving

He’s a prison-shaking Savior

If you’ve got chains

He’s a chain breaker

We’ve all search for the light of day in the dead of night

We’ve all found ourselves worn out from the same old fight

We’ve all run to things we know just ain’t right

And there’s a better life

There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain

He’s a pain taker

If you feel lost

He’s a way maker

If you need freedom or saving

He’s a prison-shaking Savior

If you’ve got chains

He’s a chain breaker

If you believe it

If you receive it

If you can feel it

Somebody testify

If you believe it

If you receive it

If you can feel it

Somebody testify, testify

If you believe it

If you receive it

If you can feel it

Somebody testify

If you’ve got pain

He’s a pain taker

If you feel lost

He’s a way maker

If you need freedom or saving

He’s a prison-shaking Savior

If you’ve got chains

He’s a chain breaker

If you need freedom or saving

He’s a prison-shaking Savior

If you’ve got chains

He’s a chain breaker

The Best Beauty Regimen 

  
Don’t look to the world’s standards on beauty. 

Let God be your best beauty regimen

Look to Him always as your mirror. 

 Let God paint your lips with His word, your eyes with the ability to see the best in others, your cheeks with the rosy glow of love and joy.  

Let God cover your imperfections and insecurities with His grace and mercy. 

Nothing makes you more beautiful than His Holy Spirit alive within you radiating out to others.         

                        ~ #LiveRestored

Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. ~1 Peter 3:4 MSG 

He Has Your Back 

  

Sometimes do you feel that no one remains faithful? People seem to break commitments so easily these days. When a better offer comes along, they are the first to bolt. Their allegiances are ever changing and makes us wonder who can we count on? 
Sometimes people are not very loving or true. Some people don’t even care if they see us struggling in our weaknesses.  

Somedays it seems like everyone is only out for themselves – and that makes us wonder, who is really for me? Who has your back? 

But do you know who sees your every move? Who is constant and faithful, loving and true, so powerful in everything they do?

Jesus

  
He is Always for us! He has your back! 
As you sing this classic song today- really speak and hear the lyrics.   
Let them resonate deeply with you. Write them on your heart to always be reminded of who He is.  
He is patient, gracious, merciful, true and wonderful in all He does.  
He is Always for me …..and He is Always for you.

You Are For Me – Kari Jobe

Lyrics:
So faithful

So constant

So loving and so true

So powerful in all You do

You fill me

You see me

You know my every move

You love for me to sing to You

I know that You are for me

I know that You are for me

I know that You will never

Forsake me in my weaknesses
I know that You have come now

Even if to write upon my heart

To remind me who You are

So patient

So gracious

So merciful and true

So wonderful in all You do

You fill me

You see me

You know my every move

You love for me to sing to You

I know that You are for me

I know that You are for me

I know that You will never

Forsake me in my weaknesses

I know that You have come now

Even if to write upon my heart

To remind me

I know that You are for me

I know that You are for me

I know that You will never

Forsake me in my weaknesses

I know that You have come now

Even if to write upon my heart

To remind me who You are

To remind me

I know that You are for me

I know that You are for me

I know that You will never

Forsake me in my weaknesses

I know that You have come now

Even if to write upon my heart

To remind me who You….are

  

Out Of Darkness 

  

In the valley of the unknowns, in the shifting and the shadows, in the searching and in the waiting; Let God quiet your soul and usher you into His promises and out of the darkness.
He rescues. 

He stands forever.

He delivers.

He never fails.  

He is with you. 
He is Lord over ALL!

The Majestic album by Kari Jobe is great!

Lord Over All – Kari Jobe

Lyrics:

In the valley of the unknown

I will lift my voice

In the shifting, in the shadow

I know You are with me
Lord over all

You will be my rescue

You will never fail

Lord, through it all

I will choose to trust You

You will never fail
In the searching and the waiting

You quiet my soul

In the stillness of Your presence

I know You are with me
Out of this darkness

Into Your promise

You will deliver me

Eternal Savior

You stand forever

You are my victory
