~To truly abide and adore my Lord means I can press on until He returns, praising Him wholeheartedly! Annie Hawks said,
"I remember well the circumstances under which I wrote the hymn 'Abide with me'. It was a bright June day, and I became so filled with the sense of the nearness of my Master that I began to wonder how anyone could live without Him, in either joy or pain. Suddenly, the words I need Thee every hour, flashed into my mind, and very quickly the thought had full possession of me."

I heard this song this morning and was struck by it's message.
We are worn.
So many I know are worn.
We are striving to honor the Lord through our brokenness, but sometimes it is too heavy.
I love how the video shows restoration and as I read the Word today,
He brought me to one of my favorite verses.
Psalm 32:7, "You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance."
Praying today that even though we are worn...
we will find safety in His arms,
peace and encouragement.
"Let me see redemption wins Let me know the struggle ends That you can mend a heart that's frail and torn I want to know a song can rise from the ashes of a broken life,
