Ramshackle Soul

The King has ransomed my ramshackle soul

I was lost and languishing

A wayward wanderer

He bought me and brought me in

I am adopted and adored

He turns my sorrow into song

My pain into praise

I know the heart healer-

He holds my hand

I know the mind mender

He makes broken into beautiful

The Prince of Peace

My Savior

He stills the storm and stirs my soul

My heart is the castle of my King.

*Nepal Mission Trip report coming soon! Thank you for your patience. ❤ 🙂

  1. Thank you for sharing your heart. What a privilege to know the Redeemer of our soul Who will never leave us or forsake us.
    The video teaching you included actually dovetails nicely with the books “Daring to Hope” and “Same Kind of Different as Me.”I look forward to the movie of the latter this Friday.
    Blessings Rachael!
