If you had known me for the last several decades, you would know that I’ve walked though some pretty deep valleys.
There has been an awful lot of loss in my life. Both my parents and both of my siblings died of cancer. So my whole immediate family is gone. I lost my beautiful home. I lost my twenty-eight-year marriage and all the dreams of growing old together and sharing sweet milestones with our late-in-life-adopted children. I’ve lost close friendships and I’ve lost relationships that devastated me. I became a single parent when my two special-needs children were only seven years old, creating huge demands on me, both physically and emotionally. I lost my ex-husband, the papa of our children, when they were only ten years old. I have suffered extreme heartache and been in deep depression. I’ve faced fear, anxiety, inadequacy, hopelessness, and still battle loneliness.
Do you ever wonder how I do it? How I live this life?
How have I made it through those hard times to where I can be full of faith, pray for others, remain positive, and fulfill my purpose in spite of setbacks?
There is a war for ownership of our hearts. Only Jesus can defeat–and HAS defeated–the enemy who bombards our wounded hearts with hopelessness, depression, anxiety, fear, abandonment, and many more debilitating emotions.
So I pray, in His name,–“Jesus!” There is power and peace in His name.
This, this song, expresses how I pray over people, my family, the babies, our future. I speak Jesus. Only Jesus.
“I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power,
made available to you through faith.
Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you.”
Oh yes, I want my life to advertise God’s power. In order for this to happen, I have to NEED His power, have to be desperate for Him. And that takes walking through some pretty tricky times, which others happen to witness. Being able to call on God and have Him rescue me has shown me His immeasurable greatness and given me much faith!
There is power in the name of Jesus!
“Your name is power, Your name is healing, Your name is life.
Break every stronghold, shine through the shadows, burn like the fire.”
Do yourself a favor and give this song a listen. It could change your life.
I’m so grateful there are people who write things I feel! That write music which allows me to worship. There are so many gifted writers and musicians! And I praise God for His creative power in them!
How about you? Have you ever heard this song?
Did it speak to you? What do you think of it?
I’d love for you to comment so I know how you feel.
Until next time, may you be hugely blessed by the One who holds the world, and I hope, your heart–Jesus!
