A Friday Favorite

Audrey Assad


Audrey is fast becoming one of my favorite singers. I love the tone of her voice and her thoughtful, heartfelt lyrics.
Her album has become the soundtrack for this season in my life.





Carry Me

Pain is a forest we all get lost in
Between the branches hope can be so hard to see
And in the darkness we've all got questions
We're all just trying to make sense out of suffering but

You say I am blessed because of this
So, I choose to believe
As I carry this cross, You'll carry me
Help me believe it

Fear is a current we all get caught in
And in its motion faith can be so hard to find
And we all falter 'cause we're all broken
We're all just trying to turn the shadows into light but

You get glory in the midst of this
And You're walking with me
And you say I am blessed because of this
So, I choose to believe
As I carry this cross, You'll carry me


And I know Your promises are faithful
And God, I've seen Your goodness in my life
And oh, I've found Your mercy is a river
Your love is an ocean wide

You say I am blessed because of this
You get glory in the midst of this
And You're walking with me

And You say I am blessed because of this
So, I choose to believe
As I carry this cross, as I carry this cross
'Cause as I carry this cross, You'll carry me

You'll carry me, God
You'll carry me
And Your love is an ocean wide


What's the soundtrack of your life these days?
You know the one album that is on continuous repeat.
Have you found any new (or vintage even!) artists
that speak straight to your heart?

I love Audrey Assad! My favorite album for the last few months is Shawn McDonald's latest, especially "Faithful" and "Don't Give Up." Very appropriate for my life right now :) Thanks for sharing your soundtrack!

Those are great lyrics... I especially like "Faithful." I'm so proud of you for not "Giving Up" and finishing nursing school. Can't wait to see where God takes you next... people are going to be sooo blessed to be under your care! :)
