God's Grace Reminded To Me...

Note: Please turn off music player in sidebar (under Profile) to view this video.

This last month I have definitely gone through a trial, a really rough time. At times I asked God, "Do you hear me?". Yesterday I was alone in my room, just laying on my bed and my heart was heavy. I have so much burdens on my plate. Just different things going on. I have tried so hard to be a godly wife, godly mom, godly friend. Yet it seems that I am constantly pushed against. Over time, unkind words spoken from people you care about, can weigh you down. Tug heavy on your heart. I know, I know that they say "water off a ducks back". It is not that way for me. Once I make a friend, they are my friend for life. It is very hard to cut people off, either because they continually tempt you down a wrong path, or continually find ways to cut you down. Then I am forced to. My heart breaks in the process. I am not a fair weather friend. I will fight for you to make it. In the last month, I have had such a heavy heart. For friends, for family. These people mean so much to me and I love them. That is just one of the trials in my life right now. And so.... I sat in my dark garage the other night, just watching the rain through the windows. Just wanting to hear the quiet. Then I laid awake in my dark bedroom while my children were sleeping. I asked God, "Do you hear me? How come you won't talk to me? Do you see my fear? My sadness? Are you there? God, I am so weak. I have cried so many tears!" As I thought those very thoughts. My husband came walking in, him thinking I was asleep, quietly turned on his little alarm radio to test the volume for the music to turn on in the morning to wake him up. Just as I finished those thoughts, this is the song that played. It spoke to my heart and I smiled in the dark. Thank you, God, for reminding me that you are there and you collect every teardrop.

Peace Be Still
.
Come to me
You who are weak
Let my strength be yours tonight
Come and rest
Let my love
Be your bed
Let my heart be yours tonight
(Chorus)
Peace be still
Peace be still
Please be still
And know that I am God
And know that I am God
.
Come empty cup
Let me fill you up
I'll decend on you
like a dove tonight
Lift your head
Let your eyes fall into mine
Let your fear subside tonight
(Chorus)
Peace be still
Peace be still
Please be still
And know that I am God
And know that I am God
