Running Low On Faith - #Music

Today was warm. HOT sometimes, but it was just wonderful to feel the beautiful sun warming up my bones. I didn't even murmur when the vehicle got too hot while I was sitting in it doing my budget. Thank God for sun!

The kids played outside, oh yes indeed it was a beautiful day! And I love the slow calm weekend too.

Hope y'all had a good weekend.

And to introduce you to this really great song I found! Must I saw how much I love the voice, the instruments and the words!



Midnight
He is staring at the bills and rubbing
Red eyes
Ain't adding up to nothing
But some hard times
He's feeling like a failure at life

Head down
Part of him is tempted just to
Skip town
But deep inside he knows enough to
Cry out
God I'm tired of fighting this fight

I'm running low on faith
But I won't run away

Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes
On the only Hope who satisfies, my heart
You are the One I'm running to
Everything that's good and right and true
Jesus, I'm coming after who
You are, You are
The One I'm running to

Late shift
She's working hard providing
For her three kids
She hasn't seen her husband cause
Their stretched thin
Nobody told her it would be this hard
There's no end in sight, but she says
No compromise

Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes
On the only Hope who satisfies, my heart
You are the One I'm running to
Everything that's good and right and true
Jesus, I'm coming after who
You are, You are
The One I'm running to

So much I don't understand
In the middle of this circumstance
But I know my life is in Your hands

Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes
On the only Hope that satisfies, my heart
You are, You are

Everything that's good and right and true
Jesus, I'm coming after who
You are, you are
The One I'm running to

  3. It's been odd here in Nebraska - it was warm this week. Warm meaning in the 50s, but usually this time of year it's -2.

    I like how you put the lyrics on your post. That first song probably hits home with a lot of people.

    I of course love Sheryl Crow.

  6. I like that you post the lyrics! I love the sun too...sometimes it gets so gray for so long in the winter that I forget just how much I love it, until the sun finally comes back out (months later). We're lucky this year, we're still seeing sun here and there.

  8. Great picks. Sheryl Crow used to sunbathe on the front yard of her sorority house, which was across the street from my dorm. At the time, she was a no name as was the other person who went to MIZZOU when I was there. Someone tried to set her up with him. Brad Pitt.

  9. Running Low on Faith was my anthem oh so many times while raising a family. Times really were hard, but like this song goes, Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes
    On the only Hope who satisfies, my heart
    , cause this is the only thing that got me through those difficult, low points. Oh yeah, Soak Up the Sun, baby! Yesterday was a beautifully gorgeous sunny day and it didn't feel like winter at all. Today's forecast sounds like repeat of yesterday, so you won't hear a peep out of me. I'm lovin' this weather and I'll take it when I can get it because it's liable to change on a dime. Looking at the extended forecast Monday looks like it's gonna be a wicked cold day. Well...thanks for the boogie time! Have a good week!
