A Song

For something different I thought I would share a song with you. It really means a lot to me! Recently my Sister and I were chatting in bed and she told me about this song she found and proceeded to play it to me. I wanted to hear it again and again so it has become our staple.

I can't say it would be my choice singer or whatever but just listen to the words.

It inspires me so much to trust God more, especially as lately I've thought a lot about the future and my dreams.

Let me fail a thousand times if that is what I need  Such a courageous statement. I really hate the feeling of failure it is horrible. But if it is what I need.
Let me lose these dreams of mine if I need to taste defeat Wow! It gets harder: it is one thing to fail but amidst my failures I have always clung to my dreams. Defeat. A lost battle.
You walk me through the fire until I see your heart's desire  God is right beside us feeling the pain. He is waiting to reveal His desire. You carry me
And through these dark and raging seas,
Your grace has not abandoned me
And for these  storms I thank my God
For they drove me to the solid Rock
Looking back at a few storms I've been through this is so true and comforting. It is hard to see but storms are God's special gifts.
From the shipwreck of my life you build a truer heart
In my brokenness You shine, my loss is where You start
To form in me your will until my love is a reflection of 
Your love for me
Our weakness is not a burden to Jesus, that is where He starts. He forms us to his will in perfect love.
You pursue those you love
And so we have no need to fear
For these storms will draw us near
To You
No need to fear! To me that is true freedom. Let it all fade and fall behind to draw nearer to You.

What did you think of that song? Have you ever been through times of thinking about the future a lot? Have you been able to look back at storms and see some of their meaning?

  3. What do I think of the song? Well, it spoke to me a lot when I first heard it, and I'm so glad you like it, and now it means something special to you too. Surrender is a hard truth, but I like how you keep going - God's right there with us, and He is not incapacitated by our failings. It's the gospel.

    And you are brave for sharing your heart. I can see God used it. Sending all the big sisterly love and admiration! xx
