Sometimes rain comes quickly

When Summer turns to Fall

Sometimes leaves fall swiftly

Troubles come to one and all

Winter’s frosty boney limbs

They’re never long behind

Wrapping ’round our cloudy hearts

Stranded—lost long blind.


But every wing that’s tattered

Can be mended once again

And every leaf that’s fallen

Can be gathered by a friend.


Oh Jesus friend of sinners

There is no sweeter name

The anchor for our wandering hearts

Our umbrella in the rain

The One who’ll always go before

The One who’s love will never change

As Springs, long dormant, hopeful bulbs

To life, we’ll rise again.

I created this picture when I was really struggling with depression. It does get better.  In fact, it gets better and better.  Hang in there, and pick up your umbrella.

It Gets Better

I’ve tasted sorrow
And I’ve known shame
I’ve been the hurt
I’ve been the lame

My Lord already paid the cost
He came to seek
And save the lost.

For blood is thicker
His family comes first
If you’re bones are dry
You need not thirst

Just come to the well
Be revived and renewed
In Him we find life
He was thinking of you.

“Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the cross: He became a curse, and at the same time dissolved the curse. And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham’s blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God’s life, his Spirit, in and with us by believing—just the way Abraham received it.” –Galatians 3:13-14

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” –Romans 10:9-10
