Sketch inspired by the hymn, “how firm a foundation” at church

How often in a desert have I cried out for thee„,

“Fear not I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed, For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.  I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

When through the deep waters I call thee to go,  The rivers of sorrow shall not thee o’erflow,  For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,  And sanctify to thee, thy deepest distress. 

When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply. The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.”

I just find myself so privileged, that I can just cry with You, cry alongside You, cry that portion of pain You felt for me with You, so grateful that You’re right here with me, already having felt it all, completely understanding, holding me together, and just crying with me„,thank You, thank You so much, always and forever„
"He knows all your pain, he knows all your pain, you’re not alone you’re not alone."

Marker illustration, inspired by song called “the reason” by Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf)
Lyrics: All my life I searched for something To satisfy the longing in my heart But everytime I come away emptier than before
**And now I finally see the reason Because I was made to be yours alone I’m giving you my life, so take me ‘Cause I could never live without you now I’m giving you my life so take me ‘Cause I could never live without you now
There were times I cried myself to sleep at night Only to wake up wishing that I didn’t
(**)
Thank you for never giving up on me! When I looked to everything else but you You bled and you died to be with me! Why would you do something like that For someone like me?
(**)
Now I finally see the reason Because I was made to be yours alone

This is freaking amazing.
Someone should try and get Lacey to see this. She’d adore it. 

waaaaa„„!! Thank you so much!!! please! :’D that would be so awesome„„,!!
