I had prayed once again and asked the Lord for worship songs. He's very faithful to put a diverse mix of songs in my path and began speaking to me as I worship by highlighting lyrics, scripture, giving me a picture and speaking to me about it as I began to create art based on the picture He's given me. Sometimes the song may be in a foreign language and the translation of the lyrics may or may not be provided. I've found it doesn't matter, He is beautifully present and truly inhabits the praises of His people.
He totally wrecked my heart with the song "Beyond Me", by Yadah, performed by MarthaTheTestifier.
Your love, Your peace, Your grace, Your mercy Lord;
You saw the sin, the shame, the fear, the heartache and pain, the struggle to be still and discover Your presence, Your voice. You looked Beyond Me Lord, chose to die for me anyway, give me true life in You. You have shown me great mercy Lord and I will forever praise You. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in in the house of the Lord forever.

(Ephesians 2: 4-5)
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ - by grace you have been saved.
For You. O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon You.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
"Let us therefore come boldly into the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in our time of need."
But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.
