Steady My Heart

To say the least...it has been a crazy couple of days. We are in the process of buying our first house, which is extremely exciting, but at the same time a lot of work, time, and patience that we are putting into it. We found out yesterday that Harper is going to have to sport some super cute pink glasses for a while to correct her eyes. And to add just one more thing to my plate, for the first time in who knows how long I got in a minor wreck that was, of course, my fault.

This morning I woke up from a restless night due to thinking about the offer we placed on the house yesterday and sweet Harper's eyes...constantly praying that the Lord's will be done in regards to the house, and also that these glasses will correct Harper's eyes and surgery will be prevented. I left the house with a heavy heart and headed up to the gym which eventually led to that minor wreck that I could have done without. It quickly became one of those moments when I was just throwing the question "why?" around in my head. And before I could feel sorry for myself any longer, I was reminded of Kari Jobe's "Steady My Heart". That quickly became my prayer. God, STEADY MY HEART. YOU are in control. YOU are faithful. I can always trust YOU when life gets messy. I am beyond grateful for a God who can wrap his peace around me in the midst of my silly chaotic life. Steady my heart, those three powerful words, are so comforting for me to pray. It's my prayer that when we all get overwhelmed with different circumstances of life, that we can just remember that GOD is in complete control, and just ask him to STEADY YOUR HEART. You will be blessed. I hope these lyrics bless you as much as they have blessed me.

Wish it could be easy
Why is life so messy
Why is pain a part of us
There are days I feel like
Nothing ever goes right
Sometimes it just hurts so much

But You're here
You're real
I know I can trust You

Even when it hurts
Even when it's hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart

I'm not gonna worry
I know that You got me
Right inside the palm of your hand
Each and every moment
What's good and what gets broken
Happens just the way that You plan

And I will run to You
You're my refuge in Your arms
And I will sing to You
Cause of everything You are

You steady my heart
