It Will Not Be Unredeemed
I will just go ahead and ask you to forgive me now, this is going to be one of those rambling posts. My head is all over the place right now. I was basically pregnant for 2 years, so my body is just done. I decided to start slow and just walk again. After Evan, walking was my therapy. I would put my ipod in and just walk and talk to God while listening to praise and worship songs. I would also cry a lot while walking and I was probably that crazy lady who cried on the walking track! I figured so much out on these walks and talks with God. Anyway. The other day when I turned into the parking lot of the park, I started crying. I just did not even think it would be emotional. I had been to the park several times, just not to walk. I held it together somewhat. I just kept looking at Carolina asleep in her stroller while I was walking and listening to a lot of the same songs on my ipod and just was overcome by so many emotions. Then the song Unredeemed by Selah came on and I lost it. I was that crazy crying lady walking the track again. It makes me uncomfortable when people look at Carolina and say God is good and faithful. God is good and faithful, but I think He was good and faithful through everything we went through with Evan, when we needed Him the most. I feel comfortable with redeemed. When I was crying I cannot describe the emotions overwhelming me. They were tears of hope They were tears of sorrow They were tears of Joy They were the tears of someone redeemed.
The cruelest world The coldest heart The deepest wound The endless dark The lonely ache The burning tears The bitter nights The wasted years
Life breaks and falls apart But we know these are Places where grace is soon to be so amazing It may be unfulfilled It may be unrestored But when anything that's shattered is laid before the Lord Just watch and see It will not be unredeemed
For every choice that led to shame And all the love that never came For every vow that someone broke And every lie that gave up hope We live in the shadow of the fall But the cross says these are all Places where grace is soon to be so amazing It may be unfulfilled It may be unrestored But when anything that's shattered is laid before the Lord Just watch and see It will not be unredeemed
Places where grace is soon to be so amazing It may be unfulfilled It may be unrestored But you never know the miracle the Father has in store Just watch and see It will not be Just watch and see It will not be unredeemed
