"Glory is rising
Yeah glory is rising
Beautiful beautiful the sound
Of redemption's song"
I know what it is to fight for faith. To grasp at grace. To praise through pain. To hide hurt and struggle for strength. To have questions with no answers and a heart longing for healing.
I know what it is to fall to my knees. To cry out in desperation. To plead for peace. To hold someone in your arms for a fragment of time and the memory of it forever. I know loss. I know tragedy.
Then Glory Rises about it all. And brings with it, redemption...
And I know...
...what it is to find faith. To rest through grace. To laugh with joy. To rejoice in new life. To love unconditionally. To dance with freedom.
To find peace with unanswered questions and to hope for tomorrow. To have my broken heart put back together and filled with a new kind of love.
To unwrap gifts of mercy. And to rock glimpses of heaven in my arms.
It is my deepest hearts desire to live a life fully, completely...and in honor of my girls. To take what I have been through and use it to show, teach, inspire, and encourage others that there is incredible hope and great joy after tragedy and loss. I want nothing more than to touch those who are hurting, love on those who are in need, and lift up those who are broken. To make a difference, one step at a time. All for the Glory of Him.
I can think of no greater redemption.
These are just bits of my story, but it is still being written.
