Musical Monday

Today's post is a song by one of my favorite musical artists. I've done a couple of her songs before, but she's got a new one that is gaining all kind of popularity in the Christian music scene. As a huge JJ Heller fan, I'm absolutely thrilled for her. This song was used as the music for an audition for So You Think You Can Dance. Since then, it has received all kinds of acclimation. I do hope that folks go back and pick up her back catalog as she is one of the most talented musicians I've heard. There is just something about the singer-songwriter that makes me happy.

Part of the break from blogging has been that there's been a lot going on in our family lately. Lots of good stuff, but I've also had to deal with some more difficult issues as well. These caught me a bit off-balance for a time. There is a sense of equilibrium that has been restored, but those seasons always remind me that there is Someone who holds me close. Someone who knows me and who loves me despite my flaws and my fears. Someone who doesn't change my circumstances, but who has given me friends and family to help me work through them.

So here's Your Hands by JJ Heller.

I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn't there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That You would take my pain away
That You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crooked lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

When You walked upon the Earth
You healed the broken, lost, and hurt
I know You hate to see me cry
One day You will set all things right
Yea, one day You will set all things right

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

Your hands
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave You when...

My world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave...
I never leave Your hands

I'm Back (almost)

Sorry for the long hiatus. It wasn't really intentional, just how life went for a few weeks.

Anyway, I should be back to more regular posting this week. I've got a few ideas that I've been mulling over for the past few weeks and I hope to have some time this week to flesh them out a bit. It's difficult to say how successful that will be, but I'll have a go at it anyway!

I hope that you have had a good start to 2010 and thanks to the couple of you who have been nudging me back to writing again!
