Lyrical Friday - You Ruin Me

Happy Friday beautiful friends.
Update on my Mother: Surgery went well and her eye is physically improving. As for her eye sight, there has been progress. Monday she was able to finally see. It's not the best vision but she can see more than she was able to which was nothing. As the days and weeks come along there will be progress. The doctors aren't able to determine how much progress or even if her eye sight will be fully restored. What they do know is that will definitely need cataract surgery on both eyes. Then will she be able to see clearly. Thank you for your fervent prayers, continue to lift her up as well as the medical staff of Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
Moving into Lyrical Friday business...
JJ Heller is my go-to girl when it comes to days when I just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.  You know, those days when you need to shut out all noises, voices and cares. 'You Ruin Me' definitely ruins me. And that is a good thing, because I am no good for myself. My mind constantly thinks of the worst case scenario, what could go wrong, what is wrong and and dwells on past failures. My heart can be self-centered, desperately wicked,  deceiving, and adulterous. My faith, it wavers, it withers, and doubts. But God's love ruins all of that. His Word ruins my mind, my heart and my faithlessness. As I am ruined, He is magnified in me. My friends, I pray that you too may be ruined, so that He could be magnified in you.
My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Colossians 3:2-3
I will rebuild you, my virgin Israel. You will again be happy and dance merrily with your tambourines. Jeremiah 31:4
You Ruin Me, JJ Heller 

There is no recovery
The damage has been done
Your love is a hurricane that I cannot outrun
You ruin me
You make it so hard to be without you
I thought I was fine 
With both my feet upon the ground
Your love is the ocean 
And I think I'm gonna drown
You ruin me
You make it so hard to be without you
Your love a firestorm
My heart goes up in flames
Oh love, you won the war
And I surrender

P.S. Someone who is unaware of what has been 
happening with my Mother sent me the following verse. 
I wasn't going to share it, but it may be a word from you: 
I will bring the blind by a way they did not know;
I will lead them in paths they have not known.
I will make darkness light before them,
And crooked places straight.
These things I will do for them,
And not forsake them.
Isaiah 42:16

I think that the biggest ruin for man is the sin... But Jesus won with the sin! And it is Good News - Gospel.
