There Will be a Day

So sometimes I struggle with depression. It comes at inappropriate times and usually when I think it is gone for good. I know that God heals and strives for my heart but darn it...I get tired of this trial. It has been almost 5 years since my world seemed to fall apart and I am so ready to not deal with that bit of darkness that is within me. I heard a song the other day on my way to New Braunfels that brought tears to my eyes (you probably can't believe that) and made me Love Him even more for reminding me that pain and suffering are temporary and He is here all of the time. 

Here are the lyrics from Jeremy Camps new song: 
There Will Be A Day 

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth,
that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew

But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we'll hold on to you always

I know the journey seems so long
You feel you’re walking on your own
But there has never been a step
Where you’ve walked out all alone
Troubled soul don’t lose your heart
Cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty that’s in store
Outweighs the hurt of life’s sting

I can’t wait until that day where the very one I’ve lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced
 To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame and misery this is why this is why I sing

  1. My prayer has (many times) been that Jesus would come back and defeat death NOW. Can you imagine the chorus from Heaven as He defeats the enemy and all of his schemes? It gives me goosebumps just to imagine it. I think Beth Moore is right - we'll have to be immortal to survive the presence of that much glory. Praise the Lord!
