Sons and Daughters

It’s been a challenging week at the Wells house.  A door we thought would open did not open, and truthfully, we are still reeling a bit.  Not doubting God nor His plan (although there were certainly moments of that the past week), but just not sure what to do next.

One of the songs that has really spoken to my heart the past few weeks is Sons and Daughters from Fellowship Church (we sing it at Keystone).  Here are the words:

Love, Walked among us

Love laid down His life to steal sin from us

Oh Love has a name

Jesus crucified, alive today

Lift your voice and sing it out

For all that’s held us down

Where is it now?  Where is it now?

Look and watch it fall

The walls that trapped us in and held control

Lift your voice and sing it out

For all that’s held us down

Where is it now?  Where is it now?

Lift up our heads, Glory has risen

Open our hands, we’ve been forgiven

Nothing can shut what the Father has opened

Nothing can lock what the Father has broken through

Lift up our voice, Joy it surrounds us

Sing and rejoice, the King’s come to crown us

Nothing can shut what the Father has opened

Nothing can lock what the Father has broken through

Sons and daughters of the King

Lift up your voice and sing

Love drove the darkness out

When Jesus rose and life poured out

Sons and daughters of the King

Lift up your voice and sing

God’s brought us victory

We’ve been set free!  We’ve been set free!

Here’s the truth on a Monday morning.  Nothing has changed in heaven in the past week.  Yes, we had a disappointing week.  There was a day where I simply could not lift my head and I could not stop the tears that fell.  But even in that hurt I knew the truth – that God loves me and has a plan.  These hopes and expectations have been placed in Justin and me for a reason, but it simply is not time.

So what do we do?  We choose to trust.

To rest.

To worship.

To rejoice.

To wait, still longer.

God’s brought us victory.  We’ve been set free.  We’ve been set free.

Here’s a Youtube clip of the song, if you are interested.
