holy experience

I am trying to remember, when I start to feel down, that these little things are the LORD’s way of smiling on me; little reminders from Him that I am not alone and I am loved.

896~”Let the waters rise” mikeschair

I will swim in the deep
Cuz You’ll be next to me
You’re in the eye of the storm and the calm of the sea
You’re never out of reach

God You know where I’ve been
And You were there with me then
You were faithful before You’ll be faithful again
I’m holding Your hand

There’s a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees

So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You

God Your love is enough
You will pull me through
I’m holding onto You
God Your love is enough
I will follow You
I will follow You
