Hi Jill,

I recently experienced losing a baby and I honestly did not know, and still don't really know, how I will come back from that. It's an experience that hurt me in places I never even knew I had. When I heard you sing Desert Song it brought tears to my eyes and I felt incredibly filled with the grace and peace that only God could possibly provide to fill my brokenness. When I was sixteen I had been struggling with an eating disorder for several years and at a concert I saw you perform at you said something along the lines of our God being bigger than eating disorders and I felt like God was truly using you to speak to me and I'm sure other people there who were struggling. After that night I began devoutly pursuing recovery and while I have had ups and downs and periods of relapse, recovery and hospitalizations I know that my God is the God who made the sun stand still and know that He is the God who provides. The line in Desert Song, I know I'm filled to be emptied again/the seed I've received I will sow, is an incredible reminder to me that our God gives and takes away but that He is still God and will continue to fill me with His grace and love even when the trials of this life empty us, and it is almost comforting to know that I will be emptied again, but I hope I will be pouring out his grace on a broken world. I just wanted to send you a message and really and truly thank you and tell you that God has used your music to bring me incredible comfort and while I hurt more than I ever thought possible right now, I know that God is my victory and He is here and He is who He is no matter where I am.

Really and truly thank you.

Your sister in Christ,
Emily Robertson
