Worship Wednesday

I actually found this song by 'accident'. This morning while checking my facebook, Adam had a great video called 'albertine' so I immediatly went to Rhapsody to put it on my mp3 player, I ended up downloading the whole album to my mp3 player. I've been listening to it at work. I heard the words

If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy, I can only conclude that I, I was not made for here

Man... holy spirit bumps.

I've been struggling with the knowledge of knowing that I am not seeking God like I should. Not that I don't see Him, but when I feel uneasy about knowing where I am its because I am not seeking Him like I should. Yes, I admit it. So I've been praying more, reading the Word, listening, even though it may be silent.

This song blew me away.

For we, we are not long here
Our time is but a breath,
so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live
I was made to love
I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me Hope,
He's coming for me
Hope is coming for me Hope,
He's coming

I had dinner with Liz and she spoke of how I seem like I have it all together! HA! I explained that she sees me one day a week, and that I'm a mess, that I struggle with a lot of the same things she struggles with. And how thankful I am that God is bigger than my mess, and He covers it! Which Pastor Clark said Sunday, it was like a light bulb went off in my head, stop beating yourself about stuff you're already forgiven for. WOW! Grace! Scales removed!

I feel myself blown away! Blown away by the goodness of God, and as Katie says “It is not always when we have something that we celebrate.” And I have a lot to celebrate!

So anyway, listen to this song, be blessed today, God is good!

Psalm 21 (Message)
1-7Your strength, God, is the king's strength. Helped, he's hollering Hosannas.
You gave him exactly what he wanted;
you didn't hold back.
You filled his arms with gifts;
you gave him a right royal welcome.
He wanted a good life; you gave it to him,
and then made it a long life as a bonus.
You lifted him high and bright as a cumulus cloud,
then dressed him in rainbow colors.
You pile blessings on him;
you make him glad when you smile.
Is it any wonder the king loves God?
that he's sticking with the Best?
8-12 With a fistful of enemies in one hand
and a fistful of haters in the other,
You radiate with such brilliance
that they cringe as before a furnace.
Now the furnace swallows them whole,
the fire eats them alive!
You purge the earth of their progeny,
you wipe the slate clean.
All their evil schemes, the plots they cook up,
have fizzled—every one.
You sent them packing;
they couldn't face you.
13 Show your strength, God, so no one can miss it.
We are out singing the good news!



If I find in myself
desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude
that I, I was not made for here
If the flesh that I fight is at best
only light and momentary,
then of course I'll feel nude
when to where I'm destined I'm compared

Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan
as I wait for hope to come for me

Am I lost or just less found?
On the straight or on the roundabout
of the wrong way?
Is this a soul that stirs in me
is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?
'Cos my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
And avoid the impending birth
of who I was born to become

Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan
as I wait for hope to come for me

For we, we are not long here
Our time is but a breath,
so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live
I was made to love
I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me
Hope, He's coming for me
Hope is coming for me
Hope, He's coming

Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan
as I wait for hope to come for me
For me, for me, for me
