“Remember”

An unremarkable Saturday, my usual running around.

Radio on, cruising and ruminating on my to do list.

And so grateful that I am still able to do just this…the routine…the mundane…the unremarkable.

I have learned to push back on the inevitable creep of fear and uncertainty that sneaks in to undo me.

But not always.

Today was one of those days…some unwelcome worry…until I heard the music.

An angel tapping me on the shoulder…hey there…I am here…do not fear.

A clear message…I am not on this journey alone…my prayers are heard and I have an army to rescue me from the darkest places of my mind.

“Remember” and “Rescue” from Lauren Daigle’s new album, “Look Up Child” are a powerful reminder of the faith that grounds me and keeps me strong and filled with hope even in my trials.  Lauren’s soulful vocals, inspiring lyrics and simply beautiful arrangements are a gift from above.  I hope you find this album as inspiring as I do.

“In the moments when we don’t have it nailed, when we don’t have it figured out, what is the one thing that we could do? Look up.” – Lauren Daigle

Remember

Lauren Daigle

In the darkest hour, when I cannot breathe
Fear is on my chest, the weight of the world on me
Everything is crashing down, everything I had known
When I wonder if I’m all alone

I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember, I remember
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there

I will lift my eyes even in the pain
Above all the lies, I know You can make a way
I have seen giants fall, I have seen mountains move
I have seen waters part because of You

I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
You have always been faithful to me
I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there

I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness

I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there, with me

Rescue

Lauren Daigle

You are not hidden
There’s never been a moment
You were forgotten
You are not hopeless
Though you have been broken
Your innocence stolen

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you

There is no distance
That cannot be covered
Over and over
You’re not defenseless
I’ll be your shelter
I’ll be your armor

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you
I will never stop marching to reach you
In the middle of the hardest fight
It’s true, I will rescue you

I hear the whisper underneath your breath
I hear you whisper, you have nothing left

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you
I will never stop marching to reach you
In the middle of the hardest fight
It’s true, I will rescue you

Oh, I will rescue you
