This morning I was driving home from work (well, I was actually driving homeWARD, I was coming here, to The Bean Scene, my email hangout) and the following song came on. It's be Mark Schultz, and it spoke to me so strongly

As a God-follower, I try (frequently, anyhow) to please Him. And I fail, despite all my good intentions. I do a face-plant in the mud and become convinced that I'm a hopeless case. I become very discouraged. The last day or two I have had some of that sadness, and when this song played today it was like a mother picking up her child and rocking it gently, that's how my heart felt. Read it, and listen to it, if you ever get the chance.


Mark Schultz--You Will Carry Me

I call, You hear me
I’ve lost it all
And it’s more than I can bear
I feel so empty
You’re strong
I’m weary
I’m holdin’ on
But I feel like givin’ in
But still You’re with me

And even though
I’m walkin’ through
The valley of the shadow
I will hold tight to the hand of Him
Whose love will comfort me
And when all hope is gone
And I’ve been wounded in the battle
He is all the strength that I will
Ever need
And He will carry me

I know I’m broken
But You alone
Can mend this heart of mine
You’re always with me


And even though
I feel so lonely
Like I’ve never been before
You never said it would be easy
But You said you’d see me through
The storm

Amen! I feel like that almost everyday when I know I am not doing what I should.
God is so loving and forgiving.
He is truly amazing.

Wow, that's really incredible. I'm glad you're able to see Him in this way right now. He loves you.

I love that song... I want to find the track and sing it at church. That song really speaks to me too.

I have been really down the last little while too... That is what I want God to do... pick me up!
Love just hurts... ahhhh! But I walk on... okay.
