My Favorite at the Moment...
At the moment, this is my favorite worship song. Maybe with the newly discovered knowledge of my Love Languages (2nd being Physical Touch), it makes sense that this song tugs on my heart. I crave to be held in the arms of someone who loves me. This song helps me redirect that desire to be held in the arms of Jesus. Wow! Look at this song...word for word...listen to the words...say them, sing them...whatever it takes for you to connect with Him!
Every line of this song rings with truth...He is good, I am not. He is love, He is Light, He is Hope! Oh my goodness, if nothing else, during this season, my hope in Him has been completely restored. I am so grateful He has taken away all my sins--past, present, and future! WOOOOOO! He is Peace...OH YES HE IS!!! He is True, He is Joy, He is Life! Come on! I hope your close to shouting right now!
When I think of all the pain, hurt, humiliation, rejection, and struggles life allows, I get overwhelmed. I want to shut down, give up, and run away. But, when I am reminded of how He is moving in my life, I am ashamed for doubting.
Right now, the part of this song that just humbles me and fires me up is: "You are here, in Your presence I'm made whole. You are God, You are God of all else I'm letting go..." What freedom! He is with me in every moment of every day! When I am happy and dancing, He's there with me. When I'm balled up on the bathroom floor or hiding under my covers, He is with me. Nothing else matters in comparison to His love for me...so I can let it all go! That is my goal and the desire of my heart...to let go of all that is holding me down and to run as hard as I can into His strong, loving, supportive and ever-open arms!
