Hidden

This past weekend, thanks to the generosity of a Watermark staffer, I had some awesome tickets fall into my lap — so Kelly, Abel & I caught our first concert as a family! Josh Garrels was the headliner and was fantastic. For us though, Will Reagan ended up stealing the show with his stripped-down set (guitar, cello, keys) to open the evening.
If I’m being honest, I wouldn’t say that either of us are particularly ‘moved’ by most worship songs… Obviously we enjoy hearing & singing the truths therein, but I don’t think it’s the primary way that we connect most deeply with the Lord. That said, something about Will’s sound/style struck a chord with us (guitar pun intended). Most of his songs didn’t have a circular progression or even a clear chorus, more like you’re just listening to him sing passages from Psalms. Anyway, it works and comes across very sincere & very powerful.
He plays with a compilation of artists called United Pursuit, who just released an album called Simple Gospel that we picked up.  One song titled “Hidden” touched our hearts on Saturday and has stuck with us, as it embodies in many ways the perspective that we are striving to live out in this season of uncertainty. We wanted to share the lyrics, and hope they will challenge & encourage you…

There was one when I was young
Who knew my heart; He knew my sorrow
He held my hand, and he lead me to trust him

Now I am hidden in the safety of your love
I trust your heart and your intentions
Trust you completely; I’m listening intently
You’ll guide me through these many shadows

As I grow, and as I change
May I love you more deeply
I will lean upon your grace
I will reap because your goodness is unending

You are my vision! My reason for living!
Your kindness leads me to repentance!
I can’t explain it – This sweet assurance
But I’ve never known this kind of friend

The sun, moon, and stars
Shout your name; They give you reverence
And I will do the same
With all my heart I give you glory

I want to seek you first! I want to love you more!
I want to give you the honor you deserve!
So I bow before you! I am overcome by the beauty of this perfect love!

Now I am hidden in the safety of your love
I trust your heart and your intentions
Trust you completely; I’m listening intently
You’ll guide me through these many shadows

Seeing Dr. Magee again one week from today (Mon 9/28 at 2PM) and will send out another update on Abel’s health the following day.
