Praying through the names on my prayer list the other morning, I was overwhelmed with the needs…
“Everyone I pray for has something weighing on them Father, pulling them under… so many burdens“
I waited quiet, unable to whisper even one more prayer, the only sound in the house, a worship song coming from another room. As I waited there on my knees, the words from that song filled up my consciousness.
“… (He) Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
and I realize just how beautiful You are and how great your affections are for me.”
“The things that you think are weighing everyone down are things I’m using to pull them into my grace.” The Father seemed to whisper as the song played on…
“Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all”
I went to YouTube and found that song, I’ve heard it before but this time I let the words sink deep, over and over I took it in, the truth I keep forgetting…that grace sometimes doesn’t look much like grace when we’re going through it.
But I can trust the grace-giver in my life and in the lives of those I love because… oh how He loves us…
~ Asking the grace-giver to open your eyes today, to see in some small way, just how very much you are loved ~
If you have a few minutes hit play…xo
