You Raise Me Up

I was just sitting here and thinking about the words of a song-"You Raise Me Up." For me the words are so meaningful as I wait on the Lord to reveal what He has planned for me with a decision that I want to make about my job. I am thankful that I have a Heavenly Father I can turn too and to know He is always there.God never leaves us and He is always beside us.

The words:

When I am down and,and my soul is weary,
When troubles come and my heart burdened be,
Then,I am still and wait here in silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up,so I can stand on mountains,
You raise me up,so I can walk on stormy seas,
I am strong,when I am on your shoulders,
You raise me up..........to more than I can be.

Beautiful words and I would like to share a quote:
"When an impossible must happen put it on God's to do list, if you cannot make it happen, and no one else can, there is only one thing left to do, finally look up and trust in God to make it happen."

I wanted to also share a few more things about me as you will see I have been sharing so you can get to know me better. I plan on sharing more on some occasions when I post. So for today:

I love walking by the ocean and by rivers too!
Love surprises and don't we all?!
Love watching the rain fall but dislike being out in it!
Love the snow and cold crisp days
Love my job as a nurse
Love spending my time with my daughters
Love candles and particulary the perfumed ones
Love the changing colours of Fall
Love country walks
Love fruit smoothies
Love rainbows

And a few photos taken in the countryside:



  1. Praise God we can always count on Him to be with us!

    I pray you are having a wonderful week!

  4. Hi Linda! I love that song too. And I loved your post. I am praying that you will know what to do about your job Linda. I've given you enough of my two cents worth in this. :-) We'll pray together over it Linda, & I know the Lord will reveal what He wants you to do. Love you...look forward to an email from you later. Hugs!

  5. Dear Linda ~ Your heart is beautiful! How precious that we can REST in the LORD and KNOW that HE does all things well and is working everything out for our good and HIS glory!
