in His peace

After a challenging last two months I am rejoicing. Not because I feel the challenges are gone (they aren't), but because of how faithful God has been and how He continues to demonstrate His love for me in powerful ways. Today, I am resting in His peace.

Several encouraging moments reminded me of the sweet fragrance of faith and perseverance amidst uncertainty. Perhaps today God has revealed to me ways He is working in and through my life and I am extremely thankful. I have been stuck with my focus on my circumstances and now I feel like I am free, with my focus on my God. One of my favourite bands Rend Collective Experiment is coming out with a new album on May 17 and I saw them play live the other night! They played their new song My Lighthouse and its my new song of celebration:

In my wrestling and in my doubts In my failures You won't walk out Your great love will lead me through You are my peace in the troubled sea

In the silence, You won't let go In my questions, Your truth will hold Your great love will lead me through You are my peace in the troubled sea

My Lighthouse, My lighthouse Shining in the darkness, I will follow You My Lighthouse, My Lighthouse I will trust the promise, You will carry me safe to shore (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) Safe to Shore (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) Safe to Shore

I won't fear what tomorrow brings With each morning I'll rise and sing My God's love will lead me through You are the peace in my troubled sea

Bridge: Fire before us, You're the brightest You will lead us safe to shore
