When it was all over
thank you lord that all battles come to an end. all difficulties come to an end, all hardships, all challenges - they don't go on forever, there will always be a place of rest, and with you there will always be a place of victory. certain victory you have won on the cross - a victory upon which all other victories rest as you promised, as you said in your word. thank you lord for the privilege to follow you, for the privilege to call you God, that we get to be saved by you, that we get to live life because of you, thank you that all good things come from you - this gives us real reason to truly call whatever trials and tribulations we may be going through "pure joy". what a God! what a magnificent saviour, extraordinary master!
