Hallelujah to the King.


My heart is surely fixed on a God who has responded to my cries in the midst of my hopelessness, discontentment and grief. I have successfully endured, and been obedient through a season of calamity. I am drowning in tears as I am finally seeing the fruits of a heart that has been purged, tilled and turned. This process has entirely changed the rhythm of my heart, the depth of my mind and the vitality of my lifestyle. Hallelujah to the King.

Reparation is the very least He has given me. Beyond, He has given me His eyes to further carry out His glory to the end of my days, as I have a truer perspective in all the things that have yet to come and the things that remain behind me. Hallelujah to the King.

Situational imprints of His hands have guided me into recognizing and believing in who He says I am. Running with that perspective of truth I am wholly capable of being fearless, wonderfully wise, humbly confident and... simply enough in all I do.

When I am given a glimpse of His kingdom here on earth; the sin, the shame, the pain, the injustice, and the lies that have been part of my life do not hold a place of comparison. The forever blooming existence of a Father who will make all things right enables me to truly desire His will be done, in all things.

Hallelujah to the King.

Psalm 84:11

My Lord God is a sun and shield.
:: He painfully reveals, yet He is a trustworthy protector

He bestows honor and favor.
:: Remaining in truth, despite it's pain, leads to freedom. The fact that we can find freedom in Him is favor on our lives

He withholds no good thing from those whose walk is blameless.
:: God fine tunes our very essence so that we may have the wise and true perspective to see the irrefutable goodness He gives

  2. I loved the verse from Psalms and the explanation. It gives clarity and insight to God's words. I am glad that you can look into your broken past and see God's fingerprints and where he has lead you. He has amazing plans for you in the future and I can't wait to see where that is!

  5. This is beautiful! I also love the line about freedom. It is so awesome that we have freedom in Christ and that with Him as you put "I am simply enough in all I do." Thanks for sharing these truths and your heart!

  6. "I am drowning in tears as I am finally seeing the fruits of a heart that has been purged, tilled and turned."

    That's some rough stuff, but brings such wonderful returns.

  7. thanks for sharing this, caydin. part of it that definitely stands out to me is that we can be "simply enough in all that we do." and that's not because we actually are enough, but rather because God loves us and allows our insufficiencies. so beautiful.

  10. God is honored in our joy, and honored in our tears when either is produced by honesty.

    Thanks for you honesty here. It takes courage to paint such a clear picture of your struggle...and God's response.

    Praying for you now.
