My Playlist

This weeks song is one I had never heard until my friend shared her list of songs with me.  It is titled "Eye of the Storm" by Ryan Stevenson.

I believe that one of the reasons that songs speak to people is because the words can apply to so many situations.  My favorite part of this song is as follows:

When my hopes and dreams are far from me, and I’m running out of faith
I see the future I pictured slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus' name

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm

I can truly feel and understand these words as I go through the grieving process since losing my dad.  I had so many hopes and dreams for my kids with their Papa not to mention my own plans and the simple truth that I really believed that we had years with him still.  Yet despite the tears and the heartache, Jesus is still the peace giver.
