Sunday songs

Sometimes you hear a song dozens of times and it's good, but it doesn't hit you.

And then you hear it, really hear it. The lyrics resonate and the composition swells within you.

While on a short run today, the song "Anchor" from Bethel Music's "You Make Me Brave" album started playing.

And how how these words resonated with me.

In every season, in every change
You are near
In every sorrow,
You are my strength
You are near

A peace in the storm
Your voice I will follow
In weakness I rise
Remembering You hold the world

I’m holding on to hope
I’m holding on to grace
I’m fully letting go
I’m surrendered to Your ways

The anchor for my soul
Father You will never change

I love You, I love You

My great Redeemer,
My constant Friend
You are near
My faithful Father,
You took me in
You are near

I will remember Your promise forever
My Strength, my Defender
I can count on You
You are my Savior, My Hope and my Shelter
Your love is forever
I can count on You
