The Easy Yoke

You teach me silence as the rain falls,
And I bury my head deep down into
And we sit and sit and sit.

Please teach me the way of Your rest,
Of living under Your burden.

Not under mine.

Your ways are more gentle,
You make me happy,
But give me more than happiness,

And this outlives it all.

A Song or Two

Music is so healing to me, so filling. Jesus uses it when I'm running near empty or just need to feel something outside of myself that I understand when otherwise my feelings inside myself are too confusing.

Last night, Kayla (one of my dear friends) and I went to a J.J. Heller & Audrey Assad Concert. Oh my goodness. It was so good. It just didn't last long enough!!!

Anyways, I wanted to take a post and share with you some of the special songs that Jesus has used to bless and fill me. I'm excited to share with you . . . I love music about following Jesus.

((The first one is a live feed. The video isn't from last night, but it's a song JJ and her husband sang. It's called "Small."))

This music video is wonderful. :)

And one more Audrey Assad song to wrap it up . . .

You Carry Me

"Blessed be the Lord,
who daily bears us up;
God is our salvation. Selah."
Psalm 68:19

"You carry me all the way,
You carry me everyday.

You carry me to the cross."

This will be worth it, danae. This will all be worth it. - Jesus

Praise Him! He is GOOD. Let my inmost echo this truth, not just my fingers and my mind. Let this be all that I am, Jesus, to declare that even in the fire, You are GOOD. I don't see clearly right now. You do. You are GOOD. "Your love tears me up and when it's done, puts me together." I can trust You. Teach me to trust You. <3
