A Hymn of Sorts...

Oh God, I’m leavin here
But you’re not leavin me
Resurrect me again
I can feel the air fill my lungs
I can see your Will being done again
I’m alive, I’m alive for the very first time

Jesus Christ break my deathly soul
I celebrate your death
I celebrate that I’m recompense
I celebrate your love
Coming from your blood

Oh my God absolve me
Wash away my stains
Tell me I’m forgiven
And that I’m whole again

I am ready
I am ready
I’m alive for the very first time

The End is Always the Beginning

Hey there again! For any of you who actually follow this little blog, I apologize for the inconsistency. Things have been so busy lately! I'm almost ready to graduate, it's crazy! I had a blast at banquet and will soon be off on my senior trip! Anyways, I've been having a thought lately.
With school ending and college beginning, I see a pattern in life: "The end is always the beginning". Think about it, almost every time something ends always begins. It's a simple fact that applies from the simplest of things to the most complex. When today ends, tomorrow begins. When this life ends, the next begins. When high school ends, college begins. Even the very essence of life, the fact that Jesus gave life to us all- it came through his death. Death gives birth to life. There are so many things that seem to contradict simply because the end marks the beginning.
For anyone who happens to stumble upon this blog post, please take heart and be encouraged by what I'm trying to say. When going through someone's death, realize it's a beginning as well. When going through hard times, know all things on this earth have an end, and therefore something new will begin. In my life, I know that no matter what life throws my way, there is always life coming from death. For "if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
