Stopped in My Tracks

The wind and waves surround me, and I’m tossed, feel like I’m drowning.  I am tired, I am weak, I need You here with me.

‘Cause I can feel the rising tide, but I don’t have the strength to fight.  I feel clouded and confused, I need You here with me.

In the chaos of the storm, I have drifted far, far away.  But I call out Your Name ’cause You are just a breath, a breath away.

Then through the shadows, Your light appears.  I’ve known You’re with me, but now it is clear.  I can feel You, Jesus all around.

Like sun on my skin, warm to the touch.  Here You surround me and I am held by love.  I can feel You, Jesus all around.

Now hope is rushing through my veins, with everything You’ve rearranged.  I am peaceful, I am brave when You’re here with me.

All my questions find their answers here.  When You come, You change the atmosphere.  I am focused, I am clear, when You’re here with me.

In the chaos of the storm, I have drifted far, far away.  But I called out Your Name ’cause You were just a breath, a breath away.

Then through the shadows, Your light appears.  I’ve known You’re with me, but now it is clear.  I can feel You, Jesus all around.  

Like sun on my skin, warm to the touch.  Here You surround me and I am held by love.  I can feel You, Jesus all around.

There is nothing in this world that will satisfy my soul like You do. (repeat)

Then through the shadows, Your light appears.  I’ve known You’re with me, but now it is clear.  I can feel You, Jesus all around.

Though the storm it rages, I won’t be moved.  I won’t be shaken, I’m anchored in You.  I can feel You, Jesus all around…

I Can Feel You by Jenn Johnson of Bethel Music

So, while my music-finder (aka my son, Logan) had worship music playing via YouTube, the opening lyrics of this song stopped me in my tracks.

I should have, most definitely could have, written this song.  (See previous post, titled “Redirected and Refocused” before you click on this song…the parallels are unbelievable.)
