Generation Cedar

Lord, wash over me Your loving kindness, Your gentle spirit, and whisper love while I wait.

Hold me in your arms just now, and carry me through this dark place.

For I know your love is better than life.

Let me love the valleys more than all else, for they lift me to You.

Let me cherish the empty places, for they fill me with You.

Let my tears cleanse away the clutter like rain that brings fresh life again.

Thank you that You know my heart when it’s impossible for anyone else to

And let me rest in that knowing as my faith look up to Thee.

Spread the love

  1. My heart grieves for your sadness and I will be praying for you and your family. I am so glad that we serve a God who is all-sufficient to carry you through whatever you are experiencing.

  2. Oh wow ! I do not know what is the reason for this post. But ss someone whose choices are not yours, who comes from a different culture and has tried hard to understand what is going on around me, if you are feeling alienated, are harshly judged by others who do not know you or your heart, especially christians, when you are trying your best, I can absolutely relate with you.
    As you said, only God knows our hearts. Please know that even for someone who is as different from you as me, your website and ministry have helped. That is the only reason I keep coming back. Since I find more things I agree than I disagree with you. Even though our paths on this may be totally different.

    God Bless you

  4. Praying for you Kelly, your little one and your whole family. Though I don’t know you in person, you are my sister, and God has given you a special place in my heart. I hurt with you right now, and attribute it to the unity found in Christ Jesus. My tears mingle with yours as the Lord captures them all in a bottle. This is a brave and trusting prayer you pray. Know that you are being held. Sending gentle hugs and a tender heart…. praying.

  5. I am praying for you today Kelly, may God uphold you and bring you through.

    This song has helped me. I hope it may help you, I certainly don’t intend for it to add to your burden.

    Tree63 \ Blessed Be Your Name

    Blessed be your name
    In the land that is plentiful
    Where the streams of abundance flow
    Blessed be your name

    Blessed be your name
    When I’m found in the desert place
    Though I walk through the wilderness
    Blessed be your name

    Every blessing you pour out,
    I turn back to praise
    When the darkness closes in, Lord
    Still I will say…
    Blessed be the name of the Lord
    Blessed be your name
    Blessed be the name of the Lord
    Blessed be your glorious name

    Blessed be your name
    When the sun’s shining down on me
    When the world’s all as it should be
    Blessed be your name

    Blessed be your name
    On the road marked with suffering
    Though there’s pain in the offering
    Blessed be your name

    Every blessing you pour out,
    I turn back to praise
    When the darkness closes in, Lord
    Still I will say…
    Blessed be the name of the Lord
    Blessed be your name
    Blessed be the name of the Lord
    Blessed be your glorious name

    You give and take away
    You give and take away
    My heart will choose to say
    Lord, Blessed be your name

  7. Blessings to you and thank you for these thoughts. It is a joy to wake up and find your posts in my inbox. You bless me everyday…thank you!
