In A World That Breaks

Today has been so powerful because our team faced the fear that is plaguing our world, the city of New Orleans, and the community.

"And I will fear no evil for my God is with me.
And if my God is with me, whom than shall I fear?
Whom than shall I fear? Oh no you never let go.
I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
there will be an end to these troubles
but until that day comes still I will praise you."

The consequences of sin and the devils work is obvious through this community's corruption, crime, and depression. It is so easy to be absorbed into the cloud of hopelessness but the power of the Cross is mightier than any force in this universe. God has the power to heal, to protect, and to save. This is the truth that we cannot forget.

I see heartbreak on every face
Hurt we can't erase
Dreams that fade away
Like we're all just lost at sea

We need, we need an answer, a hope
And an end to the searching
We need, we need a portrait of grace
Just one steady thing
In a world that aches
In a world that breaks

Somehow before life began
You saw broken man
But You had a perfect plan
You would send your only Son
The Holy gift of love
And He would be enough
To erase all the pain of man

You are, You are the answer, the hope
And the end to the searching
You are, You are the portrait of grace
You're the one steady thing
In a world that aches
In a world that breaks
