I just don't know if I have heard such clear voices. They make this beautiful song even more attractive.Read More
Thank you Lord, for being faithful, when I, a wandering sheep, didn't even notice your presence. Remind me daily of your faithfulness, keep it at the forefront of my mind and may my every action be made in light of this truth: You are faithful and Your plan for me is good. In the precious name of your son, Jesus, Amen.Read More
This is my story...
I'm telling it to you through this blog and as M. Craig Barnes says in his book, Sacred Thirst, "[Life] is defined by the God who loves you. In other words, you are not the central character, not even of your own life's story. This is not meant to demean you; it is meant to set you free".
This is why we are debtors to Grace. Because He made the first move! While dead in my sin, I would never have been able to see or feel my need for Him. That's just how bad off I was. So He came looking for me. He wounded me with a longing to know Him and because He is kind, He continues to pursue me. This has been blowing my mind lately so this hymn has been a place of prayer and worship for my soul. I hope the truth found in this song bring the same enlightenment and thankfulness to your spirit as well.Read More
Another anthem of mine.
I clung fast to this song, among other things, during one of the darkest and most broken times in my life.
I wanted to share this song with you today before talking about that brokenness on Tuesday.
I have always loved this old hymn, but somehow over the last month or so it has become my anthem.
I have sought out it's haunting harmonies and empowering lyrics repeatedly and sing it prayerfully with tears in my eyes.
The artist from this recording penned a very vulnerable and beautiful blog post about this song's significance to her.
I found it so relatable, so touching, that I have re-posted it here.
