I may have mentioned this before, but I am a musician.  I do not know how it is for people that are not songwriters, but when I hear lyrics that perfectly capture a thought or yearning that I haven’t yet put words to I am captured.

I am really drawn in by songs that take thoughts on my heart and put them to melodies.  To me, that is what defines a great artist.

Once such artist is a worship band from a relatively new church.  They go by the name ELEVATION WORSHIP.

The following song has really stuck with my wife and I and has continually been on our minds.

This has been how I have started or ended many of my prayers in the past months.  I need to know that God is still good and that his love for me is great; especially in the midst of pregnancy issues.  I need to know he is shaping me.

I do not know of a better place to go to build that belief than right to God.  As much as I go to this blog and as much as i go to friends or family, I need to step back sometimes and ask Him to put that belief in me.

You may be reading this at work but I urge you sometime to sit down with this song and help it become your prayer as well.

– Abram

I need you to soften my heart, to break me apart

I need you to open my eyes, to see that You’re shaping my life

All I am, I surrender

Give me faith to trust what you say // That you’re good and your love is great// I’m broken inside, I give you my life

I need you to soften my heart, to break me apart

I need you to pierce through the dark and cleanse every part of me

All I am, I surrender

Give me faith to trust what you say // That you’re good and your love is great// I’m broken inside, I give you my life

I may be weak. Your Spirit’s strong in me

My flesh may fail. My God you never will
