music that moves us

For our “Held and Beloved” online study friends, today I’m sharing a song that touched me deeply while living through and then writing the reality of surrender in chapter eight.

This is the real and raw cry of a heart that has been crushed by that thing that laid it flat. When we need help. From the LORD. In that place, He comes close to hold that grief and pain and fear, but also to gently lead us to His right and good path to the other side. Through surrender. Drawing our hearts to give up our own fight and trust His best, leading us to willingly offer even our most valued treasures.

God Help Me by Plumb

I don’t know the future

It’s one day at a time

But I know I’ll be okay with Your hand holding mine

So take all my resistance

Oh GOD I need Your grace

One step and then the other show me the way

Show me the way

Help me to move

Help me to see

Help me to do whatever you would ask of me

Help me to go

GOD help me to stay

I’m feeling so alone here

And I know that You’re faithful but I can barely breathe

Oh GOD I can barely breathe

Oh I can barely breathe

GOD help me

And then, sweet encouragement on my morning run…

Whom Shall I Fear (GOD of Angel Armies) by Chris Tomlin

You hear me when I call

You are my morning song

Though darkness fills the night

It cannot hide the light

You crush the enemy

Underneath my feet

You are my sword and shield

Though troubles linger still

My strength is in Your name

For You alone can save

You will deliver me

Yours is the victory

And nothing formed against me shall stand

You hold the whole world in your hands

I’m holding on to Your promises

You are faithful

I know who goes before me

I know who stands behind

The GOD of angel armiesIs always by my side

The One who reigns forever

He is a friend of mine

The GOD of angel armies

Is always by my side

And just this title on repeat from 7eventh Time Down —> “GOD is on the Move!
