You who mourn will be comforted
You who hunger will hunger no more
Oh the last shall be first, of this I am sure

You who weep now will laugh again
All you lonely be lonely no more
Yes the last shall be first, of this I am sure

I don’t know why the innocents fall
While the monsters stand
I don’t know why the little ones thirst
But I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first

He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.

THE ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE

So there’s lots of things that feel great but deep down you know they’re wrong. They don’t make you feel guilty enough to stop, and you don’t want to stop because they make you feel happy or comforted. It’s so hard when you know you’re being tempted and you just can’t resist because of the pulls of this earthly pleasure. Whatever it is might not even be clearly ‘defined as a sin’ but if it draws you away from God then it must stop. Sin is not defined by our guilt or its consequences: it is anything that forfeits our relationship with Jesus.

Ultimately, it’s the eternal perspective that matters. “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36.) What’s important is serving Jesus by loving him with all your heart and soul and mind and loving others as a result. And loving Jesus involves denying ourselves, taking up our cross and following Him (Matthew 16:24). It involves saying to God: “I really want to continue doing this thing but I know it’s not right, so please help me overcome it in your strength. I know deep down that your will is the best thing for me, so please help me to resist temptation and follow you faithfully”

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." (Romans 12:2 ESV)

To the Lord your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.
-Deuteronomy 10:14

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is Risen, Matt Maher

You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?
Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the lyre, O God, my God.

Joy // Rend Collective

"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

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!
