I Will Lift My Eyes by Bebo Norman

God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God, be near, calm my fear
And take my doubt

Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can’t climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You

God, my God, let Mercy sing
Her melody over me
God, right here all I bring
Is all of me

‘Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
‘Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
So hold me now

I know that we are not the only family who feels hurt right now. The heartbreak that has taken place in my family over the last few years is by far the hardest thing that I think we have ever had to face as a family and as individuals. I had asked for continued prayer for my family before because I had said the battles that we face are ongoing. My brother, Brian, has been facing trials of his own for a few years now. Because this website is such a public forum, I don't want to give too much detail, but enough that you will know how to help us pray for this situation. Brian has had to go through some things that most of us would never believe. I have said before that Satan has really thrown a full attack on our family from all sides, starting even before Jeff got sick. Brian's battle is still ongoing and literally our only hope most days is that God would just move in and become the intercessor. As a family and as individuals, our faith has not wavered, and that is why I believe in my heart that we are standing this test and we will win in the end. Just yesterday, we learned that there may be events taking place that may bring some type of resolution to the current situation we are facing as a family. I pray that anyone who checks this site today would just stop and pray for Brian and our family. Please pray that God would be the intercessor and that he would bring the much needed relief that our family needs so badly. I believe in prayer. I know it makes a difference.
