but i am

Tonight at practice I suddenly felt weighed down by depression.  Allowing my mind to wonder down a destructive path for a bit I mentally told myself to stop before it got any worse.  Forcing myself to quit focusing all my attention on my inner thoughts, I instead focused on the words we were singing and found myself feeling lighter as the depression lifted.  It made me realized (not for the first time) how amazing and wonderful it is that I have God in my life.  I don’t even want to imagine what my life would be like if my faith weren’t such an integral part of who I am.  Tonight when we sang "Breathe" these words were sung with everything I had in me:

And I, I’m desperate for You
And I, I’m lost without You
