Holly Ridge Happenings

If I didn’t know what it hurts like to be broken, then how would I know what it feels like to be whole. 

If I didn’t know what it cost like to be rejected, then I wouldn’t know your love coming home. 

If I didn’t know what it looks like to be dirty, then I wouldn’t know what it feels like to be clean. 

And if all of my shame hadn’t drove me to hide in the shadows, then I wouldn’t know the beauty of being free. 

Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok. 

Cause the One who holds the world is holding onto me.

Jesus Steps In

When before God I humbly stand, There’ll be no one there to hold my hand, No one telling me what to say, Just me and God face to face. 

My Book before God will be opened wide, nothing I can change or try to hide, every account has been accurately written: 

There the works I’ve done will speak for me. Did God’s commandments, I faithfully keep? Now Jesus steps in as my witness, before my Father, He will confess, I am His; and truly blessed. For I have a right to the tree of life; step through the gates, and into the city,

Is Patient, is kind, 

It does not envy, 

It does not boast, 

It is not proud, 

It is not rude, 

It is not self-seeking, 

It is not easily angered, 

Keeps no record of wrongs, 

Does not delight in evil, 

Rejoices with the truth, 

Always protects,

Always trusts, 

Always hopes, 

Always perserves.

Never Fails.
