Frustrations have gotten the best of me and at times I’ve felt overwhelmed. I am usually a strong and positive person. But, sometimes, I am weak. I call out to God with questions. I want to know He is there.

Sunday, I was listening to the song Reason to Sing by All Sons and Daughters, “I need a reason to sing. I need a reason to sing. I need to know that you're still holding the whole world in your hands. I need a reason to sing.

In the song, singer Leslie Jordan shares this verse, "But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to The Lord because he is good to me." Psalm 13:5-6

She then continues singing, “I will sing, sing, sing to my God, my King for all else fades away. And I will love, love, love with this heart You've made for You've been good always.”

This song was a reminder that He has always been good to me and that His plans are for me. They reminded me to come humbly before Him and give Him my needs.

During difficult times, we often lose sight of His presence; but, He is always with us. Yesterday, I spent time at the lake with baby Sissy. A few minutes after these pictures were taken I was soaked and laughing with you in the water. There was something about that time at the lake that changed my perspective. In those moments together, I could feel His love for me. I could feel His goodness. As I continued to sit at the lake last night, I felt a renewed peace and I remembered why I have a reason to sing.
