Sometimes, I just need to be reminded that I'm found in the aftermath of what He did for me. I'm not found in the things of this world. I'm not found in my earthly pleasures or desires. I'm not found in what makes me happy. I'm not found in my husband or little boy.  I'm found in the death of Jesus on the cross. From his scars are my freedom. For me to think I'm found in anything else is for me to make a mockery of what Jesus did for me (for you). The times that I fall short and temporarily find myself found in those other things... He extends Grace. I wish I could wrap my mind around His grace. It's mind blowing.

The aftermath of the cross is His resurrection. I serve a living God.
Amen and Amen.

Aftermath: Hillsong United

The skies lay low where You are
On the earth You rest Your feet
Yet the hands that cradle the stars
Are the hands that bled for me

In a moment of glorious surrender
You were broken for all the world to see
Lifted out of the ashes
I am found in the aftermath

Freedom found in Your scars
In Your grace my life redeemed
For You chose to take the sinner's crown
As You placed Your crown on me

In that moment of glorious surrender
Was the moment You broke the chains in me
Lifted out of the ashes
I am found in the aftermath
And in that moment You opened up the heavens
To the broken the beggar and the thief
Lifted out of the wreckage
I find hope in the aftermath

And I know that You're with me
Yes I know that You're with me here
And I know Your love will light the way

Now all I have I count it all as loss
But to know You and to carry the cross
Knowing I'm found
In the light of the aftermath
