What faith can do

In the car, on my way home from work today, I was contemplating why it is that I, of all people, got stuck with IF. I was passing by a bus stop and watching a mom struggle to cross the street with her toddler and infant in a shopping cart. All I could think was "Why the hell does she get to have babies and not me? I'm sure I would be a better mother than her!" That's when I heard myself. Seriously?!? Was I really judging someone I knew nothing about? Is that what IF has done to me? So, I turned on the local christian radio station in hopes of hearing something a little more encouraging than the pop music I was listening to. Then, I said a prayer. Just a short prayer asking God to help me change my attitude. That was when this song came on the radio..

"What Faith Can Do" by Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don't have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That's what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise


It was just what I needed to hear.

Jade reads your blogs too!

Posted by Picasa

So, where have I been? hmmm... Actually, I've been right here. I have still been reading your blogs, just not really commenting and really not posting. For some reason, words have seemed to escape me. I think about posting something all the time, but when it comes down to it, nothing. That's kind of how I have been feeling all around lately. Just kind of "eh". A little empty. It's no surprise, really. I am doing my best to maintain my sanity while playing an endless waiting game. So, sometimes I'll be here and sometimes I won't. Easy peasy.

Love you girls!
