When I recently pulled up iTunes, I noticed that “Carry Me” by Audrey Assad was my most played song in my library. I wasn’t shocked…it’s my “go to” song when I’m overwhelmed or discouraged. When I become disheartened I turn this on to help turn my gaze back to Abba. I can even pinpoint certain moments when this song echoed my prayers. I’ve danced to this song and I’ve also dropped to my knees while this song filled the room.
I know this is the time that many of us are settling into a new school year and that can be overwhelming. We have all sorts of information and expectations being thrown at us from every which way. Some have been out of school for a while now and life is proving to be more than you can handle. We can become fearful. Stressed. Discouraged. Overwhelmed. Disheartened. Disappointed. We wonder if we will ever reach our goal. We wonder if we’ll make it to the other side. Instead of letting these emotions cloud my vision I choose to focus on Abba.
He will carry me. He will carry you.
