Dear friends, I just thought I’d share four songs that have meant a lot to me during the last few months. These songs have been a source comfort, strength and encouragement in moments when I have felt both very weak and very strong. I’ve pulled out just a line or two that have really spoken to me, I hope they speak to you as well.

We Dance – Bethel Music, You make me Brave
I’ve been told, to pick up my sword and fight for love
Little did I know that love had won for me
(Figure 8 Island, Willmington, North Carolina)
Carry On – Heartland, Alive in You
Because when I’m weak you make me strong
You make me strong enough to carry on
(Redwood National Park, California)
Hoist Your Sail – Archaeologist, Before the Start
Darling lift your eyes, can you see that sunrise
Think of what this brings, a new day that begs to be explored
(View from our apartment in Rio de Janeiro)
Give me Jesus – Bethel Music, Tides
The original hymn is an old African-American spiritual written during the time of slavery in the Untied States.
You can have all this world, give me Jesus
(Cristo Redentor, Rio de Janeiro)
