My Lighthouse

My girls love to sing.... like ALL.THE.TIME.  They sing pop, Disney, country, Gospel, rap.... you name it, they sing it.  It amazes me that they know the lyrics to so many.  It doesn't matter.  We're in the car, I change the station, they start singing the song.  I remember being able to do that.  Those days are long gone for me.  Even now, Rebecca is in the kitchen singing this little number.

So.... I've been struggling.  I've been having one of those seasons where I wrestle with doubt, feel like I'm failing, feel like He's silent, questioning things.  You ever have those???

We bought some new tunes last week.  Rend Collective's new album.  It's fabulous.  I am partial to their kind of praise.  Anyway, as we drove in the driveway late this afternoon, Caroline punched the CD player to number three... her favorite.  And we sat and sang in the driveway...



He'll use any way He can to remind us of His unconditional love for His children.  

And I'm so grateful.

My Lighthouse

In my wrestling and in my doubts
In my failures You won't walk out
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea
You are the peace in my troubled sea

In the silence, You won't let go
In my questions, Your truth will hold
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea
You are the peace in my troubled sea

My Lighthouse, my lighthouse
Shining in the darkness, I will follow You
My Lighthouse, my Lighthouse
I will trust the promise,
You will carry me safe to shore (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Safe to shore (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Safe to shore (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Safe to shore

I won't fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I'll rise and sing
My God's love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea
You are the peace in my troubled sea

Fire before us, You're the brightest
You will lead us through the storms

(Rend Collective "The Art of Celebration")
