You Brought Me This Far: Lift My Life Up

Songs have the power to change our mood, speak to our feelings and lift us up. This song is one that many people find inspiration in.

Lift My Life Up

I love how God uses music to speak to my heart when I’m feeling impatient, hurt, or just need to be encouraged.  It’s almost been a year since we were officially home study approved to adopt and in my impatience I can be so easily discouraged by the waiting.  I heard “Lift My Life Up” by Unspoken on the radio while driving down the road today.  As I listened to the words of the song and looked in the rear view mirror at our sleeping daughter, I was reminded of how long we prayed and waited for her and what a blessing and absolute joy she is in our lives.  She is our answer to many prayers.  I know our next child is worth the long wait as well and today I was reminded again that God already knows what our future holds and I have to remember to give all of my worries, fears, doubts, etc… to Him, daily.
