131/365 Dara Dara Dara

Dara MacLean is quickly becoming one of my favorite artist so you can imagine how excited I was to find out she was coming to Tampa. She performed as part Winter Jam tonight, along with 11 other artists and speakers. Even though her first set left me feeling so disappointed and underwhelmed, her one-song acoustic performance later in the evening reminded me why I’ve listened to her CD at least once a day for weeks and weeks. I was already in a pretty emotionally charged state, so by the time she got to the chorus, all 17,000 people in the room with us had faded away, and I was in that special place that music takes me.

My special place is where I have the most meaningful moments with God, where nothing else matters, where I find a peace that I imagine can only be found in the presence of my Lord.  As Dara finished up the song, I opened my eyes and found that I had been crying. A LOT. I think it was just that I was so filled with the Holy Spirit that it was leaking from my eyes.

It was an incredible night and I’m so glad that God gave me Dara so that we could experience this night. Gil tells a great story and I invite you to read about it.  In the meantime, here’s a shot I took of Dara as well as a video and lyrics to the song that moved me so much.


Yours Forever

I used to walk this town
With my head hanging down
I felt so alone
I was so close to giving up
Lost all hope in love
So far from home
Oh, oh,

Thank You for finding me when You did
You changed my life, now I believe
Your love is all, that I’ll ever need
I promise my heart and all that I am
I’m Yours forever my love

You came and You rescued me
Showed me life as it’s meant to be
So beautiful
You love me so differently
Chase all my fears away
I’m finally whole
Oh, oh,

Thank You for finding me when You did
You changed my life, now I believe
Your love is all, that I’ll ever need
I promise my heart and all that I am
I’m Yours forever my love

I’m with You
You’re right beside me
I feel You near
Right here to guide me
I’m with You
You’re right beside me
To guide me home

Thank You for finding me when You did
You changed my life, now I believe
Your love is all, that I’ll ever need
I promise my heart and all that I am
I’m Yours forever my love
