Love Came Down

Psalm 33:20-22

Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us,even as we hope in you.

I heard this song, "Love Came Down" by Brian Johnson for the first time today and as I listened, God's love flooded my soul. These words spoke to me so clearly in the exact moment I needed to hear them:

If my heart is overwhelmed and I cannot hear Your voice
I’ll hold on to what is true though I cannot see
If the storms of life they come and the road ahead gets steep
I will lift these hands in faith I will believe
I remind myself of all that You’ve done
And the life I have because Your Son
Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours I am forever Yours
Mountain high or valley low
I sing out remind my soul
I am Yours I am forever Yours
The last few weeks my heart has been overwhelmed. To be honest, I get so overwhelmed at times that it has actually been difficult to even breathe. On August 30, 2010, my beautiful friend, Marianne Delcambre, went to be with her Savior whom she loves so much.  While I know that she is worshipping at the feet of Jesus and one day I will see her again, my heart aches that she is no longer here with us.  During the past 15 years Marianne has been a friend who was with me during some of the darkest moments of my life as well as the happiest moments.  We were roommates, bridesmaids in each others weddings, our first daughters were born within a month of each other, both of us served alongside of our husbands in ministry and we shared a love for God and the things of God. I could go on and on about my memories of Marianne, but will share more as time goes by.  The fact is, she is an irreplaceable friend whom I deeply miss.  

While I feel a tremendous loss, the moments that are most unbearable for me is the thought that her beloved husband, Guy, and her 3 precious little girls no longer have her to do life with.  It is in these moments when I feel overwhelmed that God's presence becomes very real to me and I can feel His love come down. I have had a barrage of emotions in the last 3 weeks, some that I've never felt before, but I know that God loves me through my emotions and that is such a comfort. He also loves Guy & the girls with an unrelenting love.  He loves them more than anyone on this earth ever could.  He is present in their times of trouble and he will carry them through.

I have more to say, but this is all for tonight.  I encourage you to read Guy's blog, he is so gifted with words & God's strength has been so evident in him. I believe his words will be an encouragement to you that even in your darkest times, God is there and He loves you so very much.
