'"God is our God! He brought up our ancestors from Egypt and from slave conditions.
you are our God, the one who brought us up out of our defeated past and gave us victory over death itself. you are the one who brought us from darkness to light, from being slaves to our own destruction to being your blessed follower, friend and child. you were never too far to rescue us, never too holy to reach out to us, never too righteous to connect with us and bring us out of our hopeless situation - but you didn't stop there, no; you made us go beyond being saved to being blessed for a purpose! you gave us a reason to live and make a difference in this world. you gave us meaning, you have us the will to keep going, you gave us a journey and a destination, and you never left us alone. praise and thank you lord!
