Recently a song came back into my life and I felt like I needed to share it. I could not tell you just how many times in my life that I have listened to this beautiful “hymn”…but like God often does (as I’m sure you all know)…he quieted the noise in my mind and stilled my soul so the words could be amplified in my heart. Each and every word rang out with such overwhelming and impactful truth. It wasn’t as if I had never heard about Christ’s “love story” before or never understood the incredible sacrifices made…but in that moment I felt it. It rushed over me and filled this weary vessel. I listened to it over and over hoping to remember and to absorb each and every word so that I may carry it with me in every part of who I am.
It’s amazing to me just how often we take this kind of insurmountable love for granted. How could we forget? I was so grateful to find myself in place where I was ready to hear it again…or perhaps I should say…I was so grateful to have been put in a place where I was ready to hear it…and feel it…again.
Psalm 23:2 “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters”
