Matthew West and Mark Hall of Casting Crowns wrote a song called “Thrive” and the words speak to my heart today. My world feels worn and weary and many a dream has died these past number of weeks. Amidst this all, I know and I believe that we are planted by the water and His water flows through us filling our hears and flooding our souls so that we can do more than just survive, but thrive. My heart's desire:
Here in this worn and weary land where many a dream has died
Like a tree planted by the water we will never run dry.
So living water flowing through, God we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls with one desire.
Just to know You and to make You known, we lift Your name on high
Shine like the sun, make darkness run and hide.
We know we were made for so much more, than ordinary lives
It’s time for us to more than just survive.
We were made to thrive.
Into Your Word we’re digging deep to know our Father’s heart
Into the world we’re reaching out to show them who You are
