I guess the years of escaping to my car, sometimes in the middle of the night, to listen to the worship songs has ingrained so many words of truth on my heart. When my friend was telling me what God can and can't do, it made me think of Lauren in the backseat of my car belting out "Keep me here, Keep me here, there's nowhere else I want to be." I am always amazed at how well she picks up and remembers the lyrics to song after song. Over the years, she has fallen asleep to these songs blaring in her ears. For some reason I needed them loud. This Meredith Andrews song always brings me back to that Peace that many long for and cannot find. There always seems to be one set of lyrics within a song that speak to me, and in this one my heart leaps as I sing, "In your nearness there is healing - What was broken now made whole - Restoration in its fullness - Lasting hope for all who come."
Draw me Nearer - Meredith Andrews
