    READ: REVELATION 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 17:14; 22:1-5 Worthy, worthy is the Lamb,Worthy is the great I am.He was slain in my stead,Bruised and buried, He rose from the dead.Ruling now in majesty,Day and night He pleads for me.Clothed in robes of purest light,The Lamb returns, dispels the night.King of kings upon His throne,High and holy is [...]

    READ: PSALM 25:16-18; 1 PETER 1:3-13 Lonely, sad, life isn’t what I hoped Desperate, scared, I feel alone No one is for me, I stand by myself Many are against me, I can’t face them I need mercy, need someone to help I need strength, need to be held I cannot go forward on my [...]

Can He heal my shame? In pain, I scrabble on my hands Battling through loud crowds. [...]
