i needed to be encouraged...and i thought just maybe YOU did too maybe your THIS is cancer, divorce, rejection, discouragement, depression, loneliness, or something so terrible it shouts but remains unnamed? whatever is pounding loudly in your mind, your body, your soul, let me...let US be YOUR balcony person today..yes?
let me hug you with my words. let me wallpaper your soul to mine. let me encourage you to sing God's song, and let me remind you that the song in YOU is His idea
hear me when i say the apostle paul did not lie when he wrote, " long ago, even before He made the world, God CHOSE .. US! me and you..to be His very own
i'm leaning way, way over your balcony railing; i'm waving my coat above my head, and i'm yelling above the frightening noises of your world, " i love you! i believe in you and your abilities! you can do it! keep at it! keep on!! He's here beside me..our Abba..and He's beaming with delight in YOU! yes, that's right, He's here, and He's not sitting down
YOU are His child, He is your father. His coat is off too, and we are both in your balcony cheering YOU on together!! --excerpt from balcony people by joyce heatherley
