I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength.-Philippians 4:13 CEB
I have a very dear friend that has been going through storm after storm lately and she is fighting to not let the enemy win.
I was praying for her on a specific event and we were conversing by text on how God had worked it all out. As I hit reply to my text this song shuffled and although I had heard it before, it was the words in that moment that pierced my heart this day and really wrecked me in a good kind of way.
I began to release so many tears and went into a full on squalling bawling doubled over deep grieving kind of hot mess crying… But strangely also a great praising God moment at the same time for the answered prayers in my friends life, for the miracles, for the hard, for the hope of her future, for her health, for her peace and comfort. As I cried I just praised God for the life lessons, for our friendship, and for hours of intense prayer interceding for her.
The words of the song became almost a prayer for not only my friend; but for several more friends and family I had been praying and interceding for, and also for myself.
Read the words as you listen to the song…. Let it fill you with hope and encourage you not to quit!

Out Of Hiding by Steffany Frizzell-Gretzinger
Come out of hiding you’re safe here with me
No need to cover what I already see
You’ve got your reasons and I hold your peace
You’ve been on lock down but I hold the key
And I loved you before you knew what was love
And I saw it all still I choose the cross
And you were the one that I was thinking off
When I rose from the grave
Now rid of the shackles, my victory’s yours
I tore the veil for you to come close
There’s no reason to stand at a distance anymore
You’re not far from home
I’ll be the lighthouse when you’re lost at sea
And I will illuminate everything
No need to be frightened by intimacy
Just throw off your fear and come running to me
And Oh as you run what hindered love
Will only become part of the story
Baby you’re almost home now
Please don’t quit now
