Thank You Chris Tomlin

Goodbyes suck
Plain and simply put
They are hard and emotional
And right now there are surrounding me in every direction I turn

With all of these goodbyes I just keep crying out to God with the same words
Words that Chris Tomlin wrote but right now I feel like are words just for me

Lord I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the one that guides my heart
Lord, I need You, oh I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

In these last few days at home I have to find my rest in him
I feel like I’m falling apart
But on the inside he is holding me so tight
He is continuing to guide my heart in the direction of his
And I just need him every hour right now to do all of those things
So if in the next few hours you hear me humming a song
You better believe it’s me telling God how much I need him every hour

Goodbyes suck in my life
But I realize that may have nothing at all to do with your life right now
There may be something completely different going on that’s hard for you
Whatever it is take courage in these words

See that God is right there holding you
Know that he isn’t going to let you fall apart
Let him be the one to guide your passions and desires
Just rest in him
Blond woman lying in field
Make sure you tell him how much you need him
He promises he will show up with open arms for you to run to

“The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does.”- Psalm 145:13b

And some of those promises to cling this morning say:

“You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.”- Psalm 139:5

“My soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.”- Psalm 62:5
