Then Sings My Soul Saturday

This week's song is a little different from my normal post. I'm sharing it because sometimes laughter is good for the soul too.
Have a blessed weekend.

A cheerful heart is good medicine Proverbs 17:22a

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Audrey Assad

I stumbled across this song this week. I'd never heard it before but I fell in love with it. The artist is Audrey Assad. I've posted the lyrics below as best as I can figure them from the video. The words really spoke to me and echoed how my heart feels at times. Sometimes we are afraid to let our faith be real and we need to ask for His help to love Him and want Him. We sometimes have to ask for Him to help us fall to our knees. But still, I think He loves it when we are honest.

What are your thoughts?
Hope you have a blessed weekend.

I'm not afraid to be honest with you today.
The only thing I'm sure of is the view.
I never knew of grace before you called my name,
before you touched my face with your hand.

Even when I'm falling, confused and I'm frightened
and my faith is afraid to be real,
You know me, help me to want you, help me to want you.
You know me, help me to love you, help me to love you.

I'm not alone in this fight but I see .......
You are the rock I said I stand on
Oh I never knew about love before your healing touch,
You always hold that open door.

Even when I'm angry, hurt and broken,
won't you help me to fall on my knees.
You know me, help me to want you, help me to want you.
You know me, help me to love you, help me to love you.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday

Psalm 121

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Check out this band from Atlanta. You'll be blessed.
Have a great weekend!

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Trust You Brandon Heath

Anybody else out there have control issues? Maybe it's my personality, but I like to be in control. I like to have things planned out and know what is going to happen before it does. So... you see where this can sometimes cause problems in letting God direct me and in trusting Him not just in thought but in action. The words to this song really spoke to me this week. I struggle when I don't know where God is leading me... but I'm recommitting to trust Him.

Sweet Blessings,
