There's Always a Song

I am so thankful that there is always a song out there by an artist who can express exactly how we feel during a given time. Sometimes we feel these things on a daily basis, for an extended period of time or just for a moment. 

Jeremy Camp's new album, I Will Follow, has a song called "He Knows." God knew that I would need to hear this album, these songs, these words-at this moment in my life. Here are the words that have resonated with me so deeply since I first heard them a few days ago: 

all the bitter weary ways
endless striving day by day
you barely have the strength to pray
in the valley low

how hard your fight has been
how deep the pain within
wounds that no one else has seen
hurts too much to show

all the doubt your standing in between
and all the weight that brings you to your knees 

He knows, He knows
Every hurt and every sting
He has walked the suffering 
He knows, He knows
Let your burdens come undone
Lift your eyes up to the One
Who knows
He knows

we may faint and we may sink
feel the pain and near the brink
but the dark begins to shrink
when you find the One who knows

the chains of doubt that held you in between
one by one starting to break free

every time that you feel forsaken
every time that you feel alone
He is near to the brokenhearted 
every tear
He knows

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. ~Psalm 147:3 (HCSB)

  1. I LOVE this song!!! And I agree wholeheartedly. So many times I'll come across a song that speaks volumes directly to what I've been going through. It happens so often and I truly look forward to listening and see what I need to focus on. God speaks in all sorts of ways...why not through a song. Lately He's been saying a lot through Kari Jobe's song "Steady My Heart".Thanks for sharing. ♥
