We Were Made To Thrive - #Music

It's been a very interesting summer so far. I'm so delighted to have my children with me. They do enrich my life. I can't figure out why so many parents want so much to get rid of their children.

This song is so beautiful. It's one of my favorites! I hope you enjoy and I look forward to visiting with you all.

Don't forget to visit the hosts and enter all the giveaways!

HUGS and Happy Thriving!

Here in this worn and weary land
Where many a dream has died
Like a tree planted by the water
We never will run dry

So living water flowing through
God, we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls with one desire

Just to know You and to make You known
We lift Your name on high
Shine like the sun, make darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive

Into Your word, we're digging deep
To know our Father's heart
Into the world, we're reaching out
To show them who You are

Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable
Love unstoppable, anything is possible
