Every now and then,
I hear a song that catches me off guard.
The message hits me deep in my heart,
And makes me pause to look upward and to pray…
Usually, these songs speak to my neediness,
And how God waits for me to see
That I don’t need stuff
or abilities or “ministries” or ANYTHING
but Him.I heard this song this week and it spoke volumes…
…of how we go through life empty,
And God desires to fill us.
…of how we can get cold
And God longs to restore the fire in our hearts.
It’s a call to turn around…
…to make choices and attempt to change.
There is hope.
It is in the resurrection.
Lent’s a long time of living and waiting…
…but Easter is coming!
I pray God wraps you
in the HOPE of the words of this song…
I’m at a loss for words, there’s nothing to say. I sit in silence wondering what led me to this place; how did my heart become so lifeless and cold? Where did the passion go?
When all my efforts seem like chasing wind, I’ve used up all my strength and there’s nothing left to give. I’ve lost the feeling and I’m down to the core; I can’t fake it anymore.
Here I am at the end I’m in need of resurrection. Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead! What I’ve lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption; You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again…
You speak and all creation falls to its knees. You raise Your hand and calm the waves of the raging sea. You have a way of turning winter to spring; make something beautiful out of all this suffering.
Here I am once again I’m in need of resurrection. Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead. What I’ve lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption. You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again…
You have a way of turning winter to spring; make something beautiful out of all this suffering.
