If you’re anything like me, God often uses music to communicate something I need to hear or need help putting words to in my own life. Today was one of those times. As I drove into work, I listened to this song for the first time: https://youtu.be/4oaRYLEIeis
I immediately downloaded it and began playing it on loop for the 45 minute drive. I’m not ashamed to tell you that tears filled my eyes as I listened to the lyrics so beautifully describe the desire of my heart, but so often not the actions/words I live out.
If you have a couple minutes, I encourage you to listen to this song. Really listen to the lyrics. I know it can help you recenter on Christ, like it did for me this morning.
To Lauren (Lauren Daigle):
Thank you for your sincerity in these lyrics and your heartfelt delivery of them!
Great leaders are almost always great simplifies, who can cut through argument, debate, & doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand. -Gen. Colin Powell
