"The pain will not define us, joy will reignite us"

I’ve come to understand recently that happiness is temporary whereas joy is a fruit of the spirit. This means that no matter what circumstance, the truth always remains about God - he sent his only son to die for me so that I can have eternal life, he loves me a lotttt no matter what I do and he is always with me to guide me! No matter what difficult situation arises, the joy of the truth is always there to spur me on and keep me going.

The pain will not define us
Joy will reignite us
You’re the song
You’re the song
Of our hearts

The pain will not define us

You’re the song

Joy // Rend Collective Experiment

had an idea…

I’ve decided to go through each song on the new Rend Collective album and pick out my favourite lyric from each one. I’ll do an edit/picture/lettering for each one, and tell you all what it means to me. I know I already posted a few, but I’m gonna start again. Hope you all enjoy it, and thanks for the support you all give me already!

Nothing keeps people away from Christ more than their inability to see their need for him or their unwillingness to admit it.
My pastor used this quote in his sermon on Sunday - it’s so true!
Search me, God, and know my heart;    test me and know my anxious thoughts.24See if there is any offensive way in me,    and lead me in the way everlasting.
-Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

-Psalm 139:23-24

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
-1 John 3:1

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

-1 John 3:1

Smile at strangers

Picture a person walking the opposite way to you by the road. You don’t know who they are, you don’t know what they’re going through and you don’t know any of their story - it’s just another stranger, so what have you got to do with them? If you keep your head down and shuffle past them as if they don’t exist, they probably won’t think anything of it - to them you’re just another stranger. But what would happen if you smiled at them? A smile can bring a glimmer of hope, a small burst of joy, an ounce of love. A simple smile could lift their mood and help them have a better day somehow. A simple smile can show someone a glimpse of Jesus’ love. You’re probably not ever going to see that stranger again, so what have you got to lose from smiling at them?

Smiling faces make you happy, and good news makes you feel better. (Proverbs 15:30)

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.-Exodus 14:14

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.
-Exodus 14:14

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. (Psalm 36:5, 7 NIV)

God has set us in his presence forever

Don’t you think that’s an amazing thought? It’s what we were created for. The presence of God satisfies our deepest needs; God brings love, hope, comfort, peace, blessings and strength. Better still, we are always in God’s presence, because he is with us wherever we go.

“You have set me in your presence forever.”(Psalm 41:12b)

Jesus wants us!

Jesus said to the disciples: “You give them something to eat” before he feeds the 5,000.
Jesus wants us to be involved in his ministry. We are not merely recipients, but participants in the coming of the kingdom of God!

I won’t fear what tomorrow brings With each morning I’ll rise and sing My God’s love will lead me through You are the peace in my troubled sea You are the peace in my troubled sea

I won’t fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I’ll rise and sing
My God’s love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea
You are the peace in my troubled sea
