“Come to Me”

I had a rough day on Monday. Just felt stressed, overwhelmed, like I had too many things to do and just not enough time in the day to do them and meet everyone’s needs in my household. It was just a rough day. Ya know, the kind where all you want to do is just cry. And, truly, you don’t know “exactly” why. But then again, that’s part of womanhood! Oh, the joys of being a girl.

Fortunately, Dave and I happen to be part of an AMAZING church here in Birmingham. One that is just alive and on fire for Christ. We started a LIFE Group (Living in Freedom Everyday) 2 weeks ago and it’s just incredible. It’s a 13 week bible study written by Church of the Highlands and it has truly strengthened my faith in just the 2 weeks we’ve been a part of it.

The group is split guys/girls. All the wives meet at one of the leader’s houses and the husbands meet in another house in a neighborhood across the street. I love the opportunity to meet with a group of women and to be doing the same study as Dave so we can talk about it together as well. What great conversation we have had!

The girls start group every week with a worship song. It just really sets the tone for the night and helps to get us prepared to hear a word. I absolutely love it! This past Tuesday we started with this song called, “Come to Me” by Bethel. I had not heard of Bethel before, but the song just touched me in so many ways. Especially after having a really tough Monday, it was just what I needed to get my week refocused on the Lord. I have put the words below as well as the link to the youtube video. I really encourage you to spend a few minutes listening and reading the lyrics. Imagine God is speaking directly to you in the words below. What life it brings! It has been on repeat in our house since Tuesday night. Cori is even learning the words.

I can’t imagine going through this life without Jesus. So thankful for Him. Praying this speaks volumes to you! Happy Friday!


I am the Lord your God, I go before you now.
I stand beside you and I’m all around you
And though you feel I’m far away
I’m closer than your breath
I am with you, More than you know

I am the Lord your peace
No evil will conquer you
Steady now your heart and mind
Come into my rest
And oh, let your faith arise
And lift up your weary head
I am with you, Wherever you go

Come to me, I’m all you need
Come to me, I’m everything
Come to me, I’m all you need
Come to me, I’m your everything

I am your anchor, in the wind and the waves
And I am your steadfast, so don’t be afraid
Though your heart and flesh may fail you
I’m your faithful strength
And I am with you, Wherever you go

Come to me, I’m all you need
Come to me, I’m your everything
Come to me, I’m all you need
Come to me, I’m your everything

Don’t look to the right or to the left, keep your eyes on me
You will not be shaken, you will not be moved

I am the hand to hold, I am the truth, I am the way
Just come to me, come to me
Cause I’m all that you need

“Come to Me” by Bethel Music
