Find You Here

A few days ago my sweet nephew Caleb (6 months of preciousness) sent me Ellie Holcomb’s new album because I was texting with his mother about how much money I could make selling non-essential organs and I mentioned wanting her new album but didn’t have room in the budget.  So being a man, he decided to fix the problem by blessing me with it (his parents have done an incredible job with him).

I am fairly certain Ellie read the pages of my journals over the past 8 months to write her new album Red Sea Road.  EVERY SINGLE SONG spoke to my heart in a different way.  It touched on fear, insecurity, how much God loves us, God’s Sovereignty, our hope in Christ, God’s provision.  She even has an entire song about the Red Sea which is one of my favorite stories in Scripture (and I kind of have a crush on Moses).  Do I need to go on?  This is the one I am loving right now.  Let the words wash over you and drive you to the Truth, bury yourself in HIs word.  It is a battle to stay fixed on the Lord, but His peace will drown our fear.  We will never walk alone down a Red Sea Road.

This is the one I am loving right now.  Let the words wash over you and drive you to the Truth, bury yourself in His word.  It is a battle to stay fixed on the Lord, but His peace will drown our fear.  We will never walk alone down a Red Sea Road.

[Verse 1]
It’s not the news that any of us hoped that we would hear
It’s not the road we would have chosen, no
The only thing that we can see is darkness up ahead
But You’re asking us to lay our worry down and sing a song instead

[Chorus]
And I didn’t know I’d find You here
In the middle of my deepest fear, but
You are drawing near
You are overwhelming me, with peace

So I’ll lift my voice and sing
You’re gonna carry us through everything
You are drawing near
You’re overwhelming all my fears, with peace

[Verse 2]
You say that I should come to You with everything I need
You’re asking me to thank you even when the pain is deep
You promise that You’ll come and meet us on the road ahead
And no matter what the fear says, You give me a reason to be glad

[Chorus]
And I didn’t know I’d find You here
In the middle of my deepest fear, but
You are drawing near
You are overwhelming me, with peace

So I’ll lift my voice and sing
You’re gonna carry me through everything
You are drawing near
You’re overwhelming all my fear

[Bridge]
Here in the middle of the lonely night
Here in the middle of the losing fight, You’re
Here in the middle of the deep regret
Here when the healing hasn’t happened yet

Here in the middle of the desert place
Here in the middle when I cannot see Your face
Here in the middle with Your outstretched arms
You can see my pain and it breaks Your heart

[Chorus]
And I didn’t know I’d find You here
In the middle of my deepest fear, but
You are drawing near
You are overwhelming me with, peace

So I’ll lift my voice and sing
You’re gonna carry me through everything
You are drawing near
You’re overwhelming all my fear with peace

[Outro]
Rejoice, rejoice
Don’t have to worry ’bout a single thing, ’cause
You are overwhelming me with, peace!

Don’t have to worry ’bout a single thing
You’re gonna carry us through everything
Overwhelming peace …
