Tune-y Tuesday (by your side)

I didn't have a song ready this week. Normally I write this post a few days early, or stockpile Tuesday songs and schedule them. I don't have that this week.

I'm back in school today and feel both excited and terrified. It's daunting to be going to school pursuing something that I don't have a name for yet.

I'm not career driven. I'm not chasing the dream, or even a dream. I'm just attempting to walk in faithfulness.

As I got ready this morning I turned my phone on to listen to music and this song came on. There is something incredible to me about songs that speak from God's perspective. I need them to remind me who He is and who I am. 

This song brought comfort, pushed me to pray to Him and come back to a place of trust, and was a great start to my day. I hope it encourages you.



Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away


Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run

To where will you run

Cause I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life
And I'll be by your sideWherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Cause I,
I love you
I want you to know
That I,
I love you
I'll never let you go
 
And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you
