Derek's Time-Space Warp

A collection of thoughts and experiences as I explore the universe, warping time and space in my vicinity

Sunrise

Once again I’m posting a song (this could be a recurring theme…). This one has been a source of encouragement to me in some of the rougher moments of the last year or so. Recently I’ve found myself listening carefully to these words again, as I’ve been dealing with a heavy emotional blow in the form of a broken-off relationship. If you’re dealing with pain yourself, I hope this song is as encouraging to you as it has been to me.

“The Sun Will Rise Again”
by Rob Rock

You’ve got to break from the past
You’ve got to leave it behind you
You know the feeling won’t last
Don’t let emotions confine you

No matter what we have to face
The sun will shine again
Although the scars will leave a trace
The sun will rise again

Just like a killer of time
Don’t let depression define you
You’ve got to make up your mind
Now it’s your turn to fly

No matter what we have to face
The sun will shine again
Although the scars will leave a trace
The sun will rise again

You know that life isn’t fair
Nobody owes you tomorrow
You’re in the pit of despair
Turn the page on your sorrow

No matter what we have to face
The sun will shine again
Although the scars will leave a trace
The sun will rise again
It’s time to turn another page
The sun will shine again
Somehow this too shall pass away
The sun will rise again

Another song that’s spoken a lot to me lately is by one of my long-time favourite bands, Third Day. If you’re going through a tough time in your life right now, let these words minister to you…imagine that Jesus was saying them personally to you.

“Rise Up”
by Third Day

Well, I was there when you were torn apart
Now a piece of you is gone
Somehow you wish that you could only find
A little strength to carry on

You’ve tried so hard to make it on your own
That your heart has come undone
So I am here to prove that I alone
Have the power to overcome

Don’t let your heart be troubled
This world will never keep you down
It will never keep you down

So rise up, my friend
No, this will never be the end
So rise up, my friend
And live again

I didn’t want you to feel this way
It’s not what life was meant to be
And so for you, my friend, I’ll take your shame
You can give it all to me

‘Cause you’ve wrestled demons every day
And they’ve dragged you to your knees
But in your weakness you will learn to find
That I will always be your strength

In life or in death
Through joy or regret
And all of the secret things you have done
No matter what comes, my friend
Nothing can keep you from the love of God

God bless!
