strangely dim


Y'all, this song is so encouraging to me right now! I had to share it with you guys. God totally knew I needed this. No matter what the circumstances may be, God is still God and He has it all under control!

I've got all these plans piled up sky high
A thousand dreams on hold
And I don't know why,
I got a front row seat
To the longest wait
And I just can't see
Past the things I pray
Today

But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face
And don't look around
Any place I'm in
Grows strangely dim

Sometimes where I stand
On this narrow road
Is in a raging storm
Or a valley low
But oh

When I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face
And don't look around
Any place I'm in
Grows strangely dim

I don't know, I don't know
What tomorrow may hold
But I know, but I know
That You're holding it all
So no matter what may come

I'm gonna fix my eyes on all that You are
'Til every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
Let all my worries fade
And fall to the ground
I'm gonna seek Your face
And not look around
Til the place I'm in
Grows strangely, strangely, strangely dim

I may not see my dreams coming to pass right now. I don't know what tomorrow has in store, but I do know that God's working behind the scenes of my life. I shouldn't be afraid, or worry myself to death about things that are simply out of my control. I need to keep my eyes focused on Him and everything else will fade away ♥

  2. Thanks for sharing this song! I'm slowly getting over my anxiety and obsession for planning my future and it's tough to put everything you know into God's hands, but sometimes we need to trust and believe with all of heart that everything is going to be okay. Thank you x forever for sharing this song! It's beautiful and inspiring...you're inspiring!

    Aloha,

  3. I loooove that quote- so so so much! There is so much truth to it and it really just makes you stop and think, "Huh. Yeah. God's got this all under control." :)
