How Can It Be?

Me and Lilly have been rocking out to this song since it came out, it’s been on the playlist and it’s just has a great message:

I am guilty
Ashamed of what I’ve done, what I’ve become
These hands are dirty
I dare not lift them up to the Holy one

You plead my cause, you right my wrongs
You break my chains, you overcome
You gave your life to give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be, how can it be?

I’ve been hiding
Afraid I’ve let you down, inside I doubt
That you still love me
But in your eyes there’s only grace now

You plead my cause, you right my wrongs
You break my chains, you overcome
You gave your life to give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be, how can it be?

Though I fall, you can make me new
From this death I will rise with you
Oh, the grace reaching out for me
How can it be, how can it be?

You plead my cause, you right my wrongs
You break my chains, you overcome
You gave your life to give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be, how can it be?

How Can It Be by Lauren Daigle (Lyrics from AZLyrics)

Sometimes I think for many (myself included) we get lost in the beat, or the sound of music and we forget to listen to the words, what the artist wasn’t just trying to convey with a catchy tune but rather the message linked with it – how powerful a reminder of this alone:

I’ve been hiding
Afraid I’ve let you down, inside I doubt
That you still love me
But in your eyes there’s only grace now

I do this so much, I think that time and time again if I hit a failure that I’ve just failed God so horribly, but in honesty even as the verse that pop’d up from the bible app (1 John 1:9) God’s love doesn’t just stop because of one failure, or one shortcoming, or even a HUGE failure, that’s what God’s grace is all about, something with honestly don’t deserve but He provides freely!

Remember today to don’t just hum the tune, let the words of positive songs be written on your heart as you hum them out 🙂

Being Still.

It’s not always easy to just let go, in the end it’s so much easier, but really who is ever still? This video is a great reminder and I sing it in the truck as Lilly sings along:

A powerful song by Jeremy Camp, the lyrics are beautiful and remind me that sometimes I just need to be still and let God be God.

The Lyrics:

“Be Still”

Lord help me now to face this battle
My strength has failed and my eyes can’t see
Through the waves of doubt that take me under
In the chaos I hear you speak

Be still and know that You are my God
Be still and know that You are enough
Though my heart is racing still You’re in control
Be still and know that You are my God

You brought me rest in times of struggle
I lay my head down at Your feet
The storm in me that I can’t wrestle
Is calmed when I hear you speak

You are faithful
And Your love endures forever
Yes, Your love endures forever
You are able
In You I’ll stand forever
Yes, in You I’ll stand forever
[x2]

Though my heart is racing still You’re in control. That’s something I lose site of too often, and sometimes I have to remind myself that indeed God is in control, and I need to let go of the reigns of my life and let Him lead where I don’t know to even tread. God is Good.
Be blessed folks! Thanks for reading!
