Combat PTSD Wounded Times
December 17, 2017
When you want to give up, it is easy, but doing it is so much harder. You sit and think about your life this far. Most of the times you think about all the other times when you were hurt, used or forgotten about. You think about times when you were broke and broken.
The thing that you should be remembering is all those times when you thought you had no hope, and then came a miracle out of nowhere.
In this life of mine this far, I've experienced many of those times when I just wanted to give up on everything. A few times, I wanted to give up on life itself.
There is one time I had such soul crushing pain, I wanted to give up on the biggest part of me. The work I do for veterans and families. Yes, I know but last year, it seemed as if being hurt was happening a lot more often than being helpful to others.
This is a tough job. Not just tracking these stories but the work I do as part of Point Man International Ministries.
It is the same thing I've done for over 3 decades. I don't tell their stories because they are not my story to tell. Besides, I always believed that any minor miracle created in a veteran's life, came from God and the veteran. I'm not smart enough to say have the things that come out of my mouth. My brain doesn't work that fast. But the story I'm going to share proves how fast God does work and yes, yes miracles still happen.
Miracles Out Of NowhereKansasOn a crystal morning I can see the dewdrops fallingDown from a gleaming heaven, I can hear the voices callWhen you comin' home now, son, the world is not for youTell me what's your point of viewHey there Mister Madman, what'cha know that I don't knowTell me some crazy stories, let me know who runs this showGlassy-eyed and laughing, he turns and walks awayTell me what made you that wayHere I am just waiting for a signAsking questions, learning all the timeIt's always here, it's always thereIt's just love, and miracles out of nowhereTell me now dear mother, what's it like to be so oldChildren grown and leavin', seems the world is growin' coldAnd though your body's ailin' youYour mind is just like newTell me where you're goin' toHere I am just waiting for a signAsking questions, learning all the timeIt's always here, it's always thereIt's just love, and miralces out of nowhereIt's so simple right before your eyesIf you'll look through this disguiseIt's always here, it's always thereIt's just love and miracles out of nowhereI sang this song a hundred, maybe a thousand years agoNo one ever listens, I just play and then I goOff into the sunset like the western heroes doTell me what you're gonna doHere I am, I'm sure to see a signAll my life I knew that it was mineIt's always here, it's always thereIt's just love and miracles out of nowhereSongwriters: Kerry Livgren / Kerry A LivgrenMiracles Out Of Nowhere lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
