nothing is wasted

The steps seem to go on forever.  The path is deep and lingering.  The skies are filled with dark and pain.  While the path was not chosen, it must be taken. Tears well up as the drops of rain fall from the sky.  Will it ever stop?

There is no use asking why.  Only one has the answer.  Many have traveled through this dusty, harsh, and crushing trail.  There is no place to hide.  It must be endured.

When I first started down this path, a wise godly friend whispered this truth into my heart.  “While not your choice, the path has been paved. Why not let God use it to bless beyond your imagination?”  Nothing is wasted.

But God intended it for good, to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.  Genesis 50:20

 Nothing is Wasted

The hurt that broke your heart
And left you trembling in the dark
Feeling lost and alone
Will tell you hope’s a lie
But what if every tear you cry
Will seed the ground where joy will grow
And nothing is wasted
Nothing is wasted
In the hands of our Redeemer
Nothing is wasted
It’s from the deepest wounds
That beauty finds a place to bloom
And you will see before the end
That every broken piece is
Gathered in the heart of Jesus
And what’s lost will be found again
From the ruins
From the ashes
Beauty will rise
From the wreckage
From the darkness
Glory will shine
