p.s. i love this song.

The Calmer of the sea
Here in this room with me
So gently welcoming
The weakest things in me
You are the blood over
The door of my heart
What pain You spared me from
How could I know it all?

Oh wonderful love, You died for me
The power of Your life is in me

Father, let Your light shine down on me
Father, let Your light shine down on me
No matter what the day or night may bring
Father, let Your light shine down on me

Oh Jesus, You became what was my deepest shame
That at Your very name
My calloused heart would change
How could You, oh perfect One
Love me, when I have done nothing that’s worthy of
My freedom You have won

Oh wonderful love, You died for me
The power of Your life is in me

Father, let Your light shine down on me
Father, let Your light shine down on me
No matter what the day or night may bring
Father, let Your light shine down on me

Open up the heavens
Poor down Your Spirit
Home me God
Jesus, wherever You lead
I’ll sing harmony
Hold me God

Father, let Your light shine down on me
Father, let Your light shine down on me
No matter what the day or night may bring
Father, let Your light shine down on me

every night (and i mean every single night) while i was in africa, after i got ready for bed and journaled, i pulled the covers over my face and listened to the song above. i love how it reminded me that Jesus was right there, loving on me.there’s also something about “gently welcoming the weakest things in me” that stirs my heart. as i lay there listening and thinking about the day, and mentally preparing for the next it beckoned me to a point of honesty to share what i liked, disliked and what my heart mourned over from the day’s experience. and yet, when i reached “no matter what the day or night may bring” i was reminded that it’s “ok”. it’s ok to feel sad. compassionate. joyful. emotional. it’s all in God’s hands.
