Worship Wednesday: "Hurricane" by Natalie Grant

When I listen to Natalie Grant's "Hurricane," I think of these verses (and I love this translation, by the way):

"Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you're there!
If I go underground, you're there!
If I flew on morning's wings
to the far western horizon,
You'd find me in a minute--
you're already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, 'Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
At night I'm immersed in the light!'
It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you;
night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to you."
-Psalm 137:7-12 (The Message)

He sees you. No matter where you are. No matter the mess you're in. And He loves you. So much.

Don't turn from love.

Your Turn: What song is on your heart today?

*Friends, I'd like to ask for prayer today for a dear family friend. He's only 17 and just found out he has a malignant brain tumor. They've done surgery but couldn't remove it all, and hope to do so through radiation. Would you please pray that God would keep him family strong, that David would be healed, and that there would be a powerful testimony in all of this? Thank you!


  1. Will be praying for David, for sure.

    Thanks for sharing the song, Linz. Ummm...I still have "Celebration" in my head from listening to it last night after getting my inbox whittled down to seven emails. :)

    1. Thanks for the prayers. And that is totally a reason to celebrate!!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about David, sending up a prayer right now.

    I have not heard this song before, listening now. Thanks! :)

    1. Thank you!! And I like the song...it's a fun combination of depth and peppiness (is that a word?).

  3. Praying for David, my Friend. And thank you for this beautiful post and song for today. Right now, "Glorious Ruins" from Hillsong's new Glorious Ruins project is on my playlist repeating over and over. LOVE.

    1. Thanks so much! And ooo, haven't heard of that one! I'll have to check it out.

  4. Thanks for this encouragement today, Lindsay.

  5. I will be praying for your friend.

    I don't usually have songs on my heart. Instead, I have scriptures on my heart. Right now this is the one I'm dwelling on: Psalms 34:4: "I sought the Lord and He answered me. He delivered me from all my fears."

    I miss you!
