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.

First time hearing this song...

Two verses come to mind:
"he sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise: = Psalm 51:17


"Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out." John 6: 37.

I'm not sure why - it just popped into my mind as I was reading your post and as I started listening to the song.

Be blessed!

"Help me to want you...." powerful words...we in ourselves dont desire the Lord but HE desires to give us a heart that cries out to Him...what a reminder...He is so mindful of us
