Yet another Mark Schultz song for inspiration!

Erin and I recently purchased Mark Schultz's Broken and Beautiful album, more specifically for a couple of songs we knew were on there. It was the first song on the album, though, that really grabbed my attention. The song is called "40 Days".

We were listening to it today on the way back from a visit to Erin's grandparents when I said that we should add the song to our playlist on the blog and asked her why I thought this. I was thinking of the lyrics, but Erin said something that immediately grabbed my attention: "Because Aidan was in the PICU for 40 days?". I had totally forgotten how long Aidan was in the PICU, but that made perfect sense.

For me, the lyrics say a lot. The lyrics talk about how when we are in the midst of a trial or troubles, we should seek out God, as he provides us with everything we need to make it through.

Here are the lyrics:

Lord, I came to the mountaintop
To be with You
I felt Your grace falling down like rain
And I was made new

But there are times like now when I’m all dried out

And it’s like 40 days out in the desert
Feeling like I’m lost forever
And crying out for You
But in these 40 days I’m going to seek You
With my heart because I believe You
Have brought me to this place
These 40 days

Lord, Your ways are not my own
But I trust You
Lord, You say, “You are not alone,
For I am with you”

But there are times like now when You can’t be found


‘Cause You are with me
You never leave me
Even when my world turns upside down
‘Cause there are times like now when I will
Trust somehow


Well, there is a light at the end of the tunnel…I know
