I remember putting this song on repeat in college and listening to it over and over again. I’m sure annoying my roommates.
"Not everything is gonna be
The way you think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try and make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly You won't give up on me
And I shall believe"
Matt Brouwer “I Shall Believe”
Now, I’m doing it again. Not because I’m wallowing (well maybe a little), but because I want the reminder that even though sometimes life doesn’t turn out the picture perfect way you thought it would, God doesn’t give up on you.
Today, I’m celebrating 6 years of motherhood. My oldest daughter, Emily, turns 6 today, but I’m not with her. She is visiting her Dad.
Not the picture perfect Kid’s Birthday celebrations that I thought would happen. It feels like a part of me has died, but I’m still kickin’.
I Shall Believe.
"Broken in two
"I know You're on to me
That I only come home
When I'm so all alone
But I do believe"
When things don’t go the way you plan, you either can run away from God, or run to Him.
"Open the door
And show me Your face tonight
I know it's true
No one heals me like You
And You hold the key"
He can unlock you from wallowing in depression when things don’t turn out the picture perfect way you thought they would.
"Never again will I turn away from You
I'm so heavy tonight
But Your love is alright
And I do believe"
