“The More I Seek You” by Steffany Gretzinger has been a beloved song for a while. Recently, as I’ve started to learn more about the feminine/mothering Heart of God this has taken on a deeper and more vulnerable meaning for me.
One of my all time favorites is “It Is Well” by Bethel. It is such a good reminder that in this world there will be trouble…earth quaked, seas shaken and stirred, and seemingly unmovable mountains will threaten and intimidate us in order to get our eyes off of the source of all hope, love, joy, and peace.
Like so many of Steffany’s worship songs the lyrics and melody are so honest and raw they are almost haunting. The first words grip me. Because of multiple layers of shame we hide and so often live with the bondage. We long for rescue. The God of unfailing kindness simply says, “Come out of hiding you’re safe here with me.”
The artist has arranged several popular worship songs into piano pieces that work really well to have on in the background while reading/thinking/journaling, etc. For me, I can’t have music on with the lyrics being sung while I am trying to practice the solitude and hear from God. But the familiar melodies are comforting and inspiring to me.
Amanda Cook and Steffany Gretzinger from Bethel Worship sing this song “Perfect Peace”. This song has helped me remember that perfect peace comes from God and I need to seek it out in Him before I try to manufacture it myself. Spend some time in worship.

At True Pursuit, we believe that God truly is a God of process. He does not hurry and is willing to wait as long as it takes for us to catch up to Him. If we are willing God willing transform us into the person God created us to be. We are in process because God is a God of process. John Eldredge writes more…
