First One

We have people

that we go to first

 

with heartache

and anger

and excitement

 

They are the close ones

who listen to our hearts

 

And what if

we sought God first

 

with heartache

and anger

and excitement

 

That He would be the One

to remind us who we are

 

when we forget

and listen to lies

 

That He would be the One

to laugh with us

 

when all is hilarious

 

That He would be the One

to mourn with us

 

when our hearts are broken

 

That He would be the One

to calm us

 

when unfairness plagues us

 

That He would be the One

to be still

 

with us….

 

God with us

 

He is the first

and the best friend

 

we will ever have

 

And we will hear

the most perfect response

from Him alone

So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from His perspective.

Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember) shows up again on this earth, you’ll show up, too—the real you, the glorious you. Meanwhile, be content with obscurity, like Christ.

– Colossians 3:1-4 (MSG)

 

So don’t be afraid. I am here, with you; don’t be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, help you. I am here with My right hand to make right and to hold you up.

–  Isaiah 41:10 (VOICE)

 

For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

– Zephaniah 3;17 (NLT)
