Sometimes a song can express exactly what I'm feeling and needing to say,
but don't know how to.
Sometimes when I don't even realize that I need to say it.
Every now and then, I can have something that's been weighing on my heart
for the past few months
or the past few hours
that I'll know I need to take to God
and I just won't know how to.
I have trouble letting go of things.
I am able to say
"God I can't handle this.
Please, help me.
Take this from me.
You're so much more capable than me."
But I'm not always able
to actually let go.
I want to.
I've often prayed for the desire to want to let go.
Because you need that before you gain the actual ability, right?
But, sometimes, I'll have this
weighing on me so heavily
or maybe I'll push it to the back of my mind
and try to deny that it's weighing on me
I'll hear a song
it could be a song that I've heard countless times
or one that's brand new to me
and my heart
will just break.
It'll bring tears to my eyes.
finding songs that speak the words
that I can't find to say
no matter how desperately I want to say them.
Eden by Phil Wickham
is one of those songs for me.
The first time I heard it, I was sort of mesmerized.
I got chills.
By the end I was smiling and crying at the same time.
I wanted to hear it again
and it describes the way I feel about God
in a way that I never could find words for.
I still get chills
and sometimes a little teary
I hear it.
I hope you like it, too.
Do you have a song that speaks to you
like this one does to me?
