Unredeemed.

This late night writing is becoming a habit. Huh...I should try sleeping more and thinking less. Oh well.

Today I worked on a short video for my childhood church, on what I've been doing, who God has called me to stand up for.....where He has called me to go.

I've been doing lots of research lately about human trafficking...and I thought that I was getting used to the numbers, the stats, etc...and then I read this one...which I have posted and tweeted....

"The Average lifespan of a (human trafficking) victim is 3-7 years. (found dead from attack, abuse, AID's, other STD's, malnutrition, overdose or suicide)        arkofhopeforchildren.org

We read a lot of stats.....we get used to a lot of numbers....this one scared me. I don't know how up to date it is......or where it originates from....but the reality is....I am not surprised by it....okay, I am surprised by it.....but it makes sense. It really does.


And so, when the day is filled with research or preparation or pondering.....I go to this song.... 



Unredeemed.......Selah

The cruelest word, the coldest heart
The deepest wound, the endless dark
The lonely ache, the burning tears
The bitter nights, the wasted years

Life breaks and falls apart
But we know these are

Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
It may be unfulfilled, it may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered
Is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see, it will not be unredeemed

For every choice that led to shame
And all the love that never came
For every vow that someone broke
And every life that gave up hope

We live in the shadow of the fall

But the cross says these are all

Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
It may be unfulfilled, it may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered
Is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see, it will not be unredeemed

Oh, He will wipe every tear
Will not be, be unredeemed

Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
It may be unfulfilled, it may be unrestored
But you never know the miracle the Father has in store
Just watch and see, it will not be

Just watch and see, it will not be unredeemed

And I am so thankful....that it will not be...unredeemed.
G'night.
