A New Song

Its been 4 or 5 years since I've written a song.

This week as I sat at my keyboard preparing for rehearsal the following night, I started worshiping and singing. Mostly I love to sing sounds, not necessarily words. I find comfort in the fact that God reads our hearts, so when I pour out sounds to Him, I know He hears and understands. This type of worship takes me to a secret place with Him.
In my worship wandering, the words of this song poured out:

My soul finds rest in God alone (repeat.... a lot)

Why so downcast O my soul
Put your hope in God alone
He's a redeemer
He is a healer
He has the answer to all of my questions (repeat)

He is in control
He is God alone
God of the heavens
God of the earth
Sovereign, majestic and awesome in wonders (repeat) is He (ending only)

The Lord is good and His love endures
The Lord is good and His love endures
The Lord is good and His love endures
The Lord is good and His love endures everyday

There is such power in the word of God. These are not my words, they came from His word.
They came to me, after a season of testing and trial. They came and washed my heart, infused hope and reminded me that the test always produces a great reward.

Thank you God for your word that brings promise and hope and power that cannot be found from any other source.
