Carry on…

DSCN7809DSCN7815Praying for some dear friends and through some things this morning and found myself singing these words….  I love that God doesn’t pull back from the difficult things in life. He calls us to draw near to Him, to trust Him, to walk in His ways. He calls us to greater things than what we can imagine…but sometimes the pathway isn’t what we’d imagine or choose, that’s for sure. I love that He can use all things. ALL things. The requirement  is that we bring them to Him and trust Him…

Carry On

When I walk where I never thought I’d go

When I bear what I never thought I’d hold

When I see what I hoped I’d never ever ever see

I will trust in the Grace of Calvary

DSCN7559

When my world feels like it’s crashing down

When it feels like there’s no solid ground

When the light is so hard to be found

I will pray and just lay my burdens down

(Chorus)

For my Lord is the lifter of my eyes

And He sees what I can’t see with mine

And He uses all I bring to Him

Oh, the offering is where His grace begins

For my Lord is the lifter of my eyes

How He sees what I can’t see with mine

He breathes life into what I thought was gone

He gives grace that helps me carry on, oh, carry on…

When I hear words that cut so deep

When I wish there was just some release

When I find that answers can’t be found

I will trust in the love of Christ profound

When I fear what the next moment brings

Let me stop and trust in unseen things

Oh He loves and lives and leads and stands

Oh my Jesus meets me where I am

DSCN7213

(Chorus)

For my Lord is the lifter of my eyes

And He sees what I can’t see with mine

And He uses all I bring to Him

Oh, the offering is where His grace begins

For my Lord is the lifter of my eyes

How He sees what I can’t see with mine

He breathes life into what I thought was gone

He gives grace that helps me carry on, oh, carry on…

When I walk where I never thought I’d go

When I bear what I never thought I’d hold

When I see what I hoped I’d never ever ever see

I will trust in the Grace of Calvary

For that’s where He carried the cross for me

So I’ll carry on as one set free, oh carry on

 

Carry On ❤ ~
