I wish for you

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles. -Psalm 

Life is hard. Everyday is filled with ups and downs, and eventually we are faced with heartbreak and disappointment. Even those we look up to might let us down, and things we thought were set in stone might fall apart. We press on though, fighting and praying and reminding ourselves that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and God has a plan for us; a plan for our lives and a plan for all the ups and downs and disappointments and failures we've experienced along the way. We remind ourselves that this is why our joy and strength is in Him and not things of this world, and we find comfort in Him. The hardest part is waiting for God to take us out of the pain and into the light where we see how He is going to use all of those times that were less than perfect, but in His own time- the perfect time, He will. We will be happier and stronger and more faithful for it, too.

Cry hard, Laugh Loud
Be humble, Stand Proud
And don't be afraid of your fears
Let love break your heart
Just be who you are
All of this 
All that there is 
I wish for you
You can never know which way your world will turn
How the stars are gonna fall
Salty tears they burn
There are lessons you will learn
But you'll be stronger for it all 
Cry hard, Laugh Loud
Be humble, Stand Proud
Hold onto your faith with all your heart
Be careful, Be brave
Be still, but don't stay
In any one place for too long
Remember God's grace
Give more than you take
All of this ,All that there is 
I wish for you
