“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all...” Psalm 34:18-19
"Sigh... This has been a heart-breaking week. I won't explain it all because it isn't my story to tell, but some dear friends of mine have had one of the hardest weeks imaginable - literally... I have been honored enough to sit with them through some of it and as I have prayed for them and cried for them, these words have echoed through my thoughts: "God is still God and God is still good." No matter what happens or how things appear, that Truth will never, ever change. The other night, I wrote the words to a song - for my friends and anyone else who might need it - for me when I need it. I hope they encourage you wherever and whenever you might need it, too."I still tremble to offer words of any kind to people in situations so much harder than any I've ever faced, but when I wrote this song for my friend, she was encouraged by it - so it gives me more courage to share it with others. I've been reminded of it this week, so I thought I'd post it along with the recording I made for my friend back in 2009.

So thanks to my mom, Carole & her hilarious husband Wayne, and all of the wonderful Campus Bible Church ladies. I was blessed by my time with you this weekend!
|This is one of Carole's beautiful creations! (It says "Shalom" in Hebrew.)|

Lord, You're bigger than the sky above yet closer to me
Than the very air that I breathe
The grandest canyons wide could never hold all Your love
And Your truth is a rock for eternity
Your freedom is like the eagle as it soars
Your Word like a fire that burns in me
The light of heaven shines in the moon and stars at night
The universe sings of Your glory

Last night at our last sharing time at Watershed Church in Kansas City, MO, I felt led to share this song with them. So I thought it would be an appropriate one to share with y'all today. ; ) I wrote it during the crazy summer of 2010 when we were working hard on moving out of our house so we could start training in Abbotsford and I KNEW there was NO WAY we would be able to get out of our house without God's help and strength and supernatural power at work in us and around us. This song was one of the ways I could remind myself of that and plead with God for Him to show me His power at the same time. And as always, He did indeed come through!!!

Breathe and know
My God loves me
He loves me
Jesus loves me
Trust in His love
Rest in His grace
Emily @ Chattingatthesky.com is frequently inspiring me. She and some almost 600 others are participating in a 31 Day blogging challenge/marathon/party... To blog for 31 days in October about something. Anything. When I first heard the idea I thought pretty quickly about sharing my songs. So I'm going to try to do that. Sometimes I hope I'll actually get a recording up here as well so you can HEAR it instead of just read the lyrics - but I can't do that every time.
Or tonight. : )
Sometimes you'll get an explanation about the song and what it means/meant to me and sometimes you won't.
Like tonight. : )
We're at the tail end of our whirlwind tour of Kansas, Oklahoma and even a little bit of Missouri. So breathing is about all I am going to try to do for now. And if I can get an internet connection tomorrow, I'll post another song for y'all to read.
See ya tomorrow... : )
