This week’s “Song of the Week” is The Light In Me by Brandon Heath on his latest album, Leaving Eden. The Light In Me is a wonderful song about how God is ultimately our source for living, and the One who put the “Light” in us. The chords and lyrics are below. I hope you enjoy the song!

In the midst of my exams and problems with doubts, hopelessness and loneliness this song reminded me of God’s love and His Father heart. I am still learning that some problems are to big for me to face on my own and that is actually a good thing. It means I need to look and trust in God.
