“Overwhelm Me”

I have recently been fighting through losing my father.  He has been in the hospital for about two weeks.  As I thought about some of the great hymns and songs that have brought me peace during hard times in the past…I came to a realization.  These songs didn’t meet my needs any more.  “Peace like a river”…not enough.  “Sorrows like sea billows”…if only.  This song came from a desperation to be knocked down by the greatest gifts my God has to give.  So.  Hear my heart.  And echo its cry.  And God…above all.  Overwhelm me.
