Lyrics I Feel = LIF

I hope your Valentine week was good....but whether you received candy and roses...sweet nothings in your ears or nothing at all.....never forget...He holds all things together....and He will hold you together too...
Through several difficult days this week I found these lyrics to speak powerfully to me....I implore you to join me in lifting your eyes to Him who is forever the Lover of your soul.

I Will lift My Eyes
Bebo Norman

God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God, be near, calm my fear
And take my doubt
Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can’t climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You

God, my God, let Mercy sing
Her melody over me
God, right here all I bring
Is all of me ‘Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
‘Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
So hold me now

God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now...

While you were going thru the flood I can only know that He was there with you. Music brings such a peace adn I am so glad these were here to comfort you.

I hope you had some breathing room in your spirit today. Praying for some much-needed deep, soul peace...

I was in a music store today and I was enjoying reading the lyrics. Poems and stories and carefully selected words set to music are great.

The verse..'I will kift my eyes to the maker of the mountains I can't climb' is powerful for me!! I pray that this weekend finds your storms calmed and the mountains just grains of sand.

I had a wonderful Valentines day. I managed to get my wife just what she wanted, which feels more like I escaped than did the right thing!
