A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

The Winds of Your Grace

Music can be a powerful combination of wisdom and emotion tied together in a single package. There were many songs I listened to that gave me strength and encouragement as I healed from my divorce. As someone who speaks the language of music, I hope that I can use what I have written to be a gift to many of you to do the same.

This is a song I wrote and recorded with my band, Steady On, seven years ago. It is a song about being in the place of weariness and falling back on our heavenly Father. In these quiet moments he lifts us up and gives us the power of the Holy Spirit, not just so that we can survive, but so we can serve in strength.

Lying here I don’t want to sleep
Though I close my eyes
I fall away into Your presence
In this dark and silent night

I feel Your arms around me
My tears running down Your shoulder
But the road is too long and the race is to harsh
For this tired little girl to stand up any longer

And though this world may grow weary
I will not grow faint
I will mount up with wings and fly like an eagle
On the winds of Your grace

A silent wind whirls around me
As you lift me higher and higher
You never let go and in me Your strength grows
The world I once knew grows so much smaller

And though this world may grow weary
I will not grow faint
I will mount up with wings and fly like an eagle
On the winds of Your grace

Send me on this race you’ve set before me
I will answer Your call
I will press to mark, Spirit guide me
And may I never fall

And though this world has grow weary
Still I grow not faint
For I have mounted with wings and fly like an eagle
On the winds of Your grace
On the winds of Your grace
Of Your Grace
