When life becomes appalling I turn to God to sustain me – life on earth cannot do it and that’s a praise. Old hymns seem to well up in me like tears that cry out to God. New songs sing themselves in my head:
Sometimes your calling comes in dream/When setbacks and failures, and upset plans/Test my faith and leave me with empty hands/Are You not the closest when it’s hardest to stand/I know that You will finish what You began
Lyrics in paragraph above from a song sung by Downhere: http://www.downhere.com/ called Here I Am found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN1MvK7Y-iY . I don’t always understand how the lyrics speak to the current situation like these do. I do know I am to trust God.
To the songwriter, thank you I think you helped God keep my soul alive one more day.
