By Diana Rasmussen

You are here in my heartache and pain.
You never leave or forsake me.
Your love leaves a mark, when it touches my heart;
You are here Lord, You are my strength.

Your mercy runs deeper than the tallest tree.
Your hope burns like a fire in my heart.
Your grace lets me fly like an eagle.
And your love sets me free to be me.


The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help,

       He rescues them from all their troubles.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;

       he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

 The righteous person faces many troubles,

       but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. (Psalm 34:17-19 NLT)

” When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,  the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.

Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.

Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 

Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT)
