Whenever things get really hard for me to deal with, I tend to hide from the world. Lately, I’ve been overwhelmed by the things in my life that are hard for me to deal with. However, today I’ve been blessed with a resting peace, and it can only be described as a peace that surpasses all understanding. Hopefully, things will calm down soon, and I will have some peace around me, to go along with the peace I feel in my heart today. In the meantime, I’ve attached a video of John Michael Talbot‘s song that I’ve been listening to since I was a young girl. It’s music soothes my troubled soul.
John Michael Talbot – Hiding Place
Song lyrics to The Hiding Place:
You are my hiding place, O Lord
You saved me in my distress
You are my hid-ing place
You save me from distress
Y-o-u surround my soul
With cries of deliverance
2.Let every good man pray to you
In his hour of need
Flood wa-ters may reach high
But him they shall not reach
Let every good man pray
In his hour of need
CH: You are my hiding place, O Lord
You gaze into the se-crets of my soul
3.A hidden secret wastes my frame
I groan through the night and cry
Through the day
I will confess my sin
My guilt I will not hide
I will confess my pride
And God will forgive
fin: You are my Hiding place, O Lord

Bird, I have never heard this song before. IT IS BEAUTIFUL and will become a favorite of mine I believe. Thanks so much for sharing.
I’m so glad you like it! It is a “go to” song for me when things are getting overwhelming for me.
Are you familiar with the Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns? It is one of the songs that I go to when I need to be reminded in difficult times, that God’s voice is the only one that I need to hear. I posted it a while back —
I’ll check it out..Thank you!

Be sure that you listen to the song My Hiding Place. I had never heard this song before. It is lovely and the words are so meaningful.
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall compass me about with songs of deliverance.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go; I will guide you with my eye.
🙂 Congratulations on writing at 20 Lines a Day!!
Ahh — the Talbots — you age yourself! But then, they are ageless . . .
Glad you got peace. Great thing to have, eh? Love and prayers. Really.
Thank you, Katharine!
Thank you! Wonderful…
You’re welcome…I love that song!
Love that you found your resting place and some sense of peace. Next time things get you overwhelmed check out “Press On” by Selah. It will speak right to where you are at and help you press on through them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAbuBM04LLc
I will! Thank you…
The link was to a You Tube video of the song for you to listen to. You’ll recognize that they even mention in the lyrics looking toward the prize we have waiting for us at the end of our race here on earth.
Birdee, I too have been hiding, we are one in the same. It seems the more I read, the more people I talk to, the more I find that this past year has been a struggle for alot of people! I am glad you found your peace, it brings a smile to my face 😉 Miss You Much and Much Love
I thought I might share the song that helps me through since you shared your beautiful song!
Thank you, Jenny!! I think we get to meet up next week. Aren’t you taking our company Christmas picture? I can’t wait to hug your neck!!
