Nothing Compares

I was driving home from the church after dropping off something and I started praying about our winter retreat that is only 10 days away! I started praying for the band, I was praying for our small groups, and then this song came on.

And I started praying with a completely different focus! Lord, let them know You, really know You. Let them know You, let them hear Your voice, let Your Word penetrate their hearts Lord, NOTHING COMPARES TO KNOWING YOU LORD, LET THEM TRULY KNOW YOU!!

There are a lot of tangible things that God has done for me, so many things He has given me, His provision is amazing in my life, but honestly, knowing Him, is the greatest thing! Knowing that He loves me just because is amazing, knowing there isn’t a thing I can do to make Him love me more or less.


That just blows me away!

Lord, I can never thank You enough for all You’ve done for me, but Lord, thank You for loving me when I was most unloveable.Thank You for loving me whether I do anything or not. Thank You. Lord, I know You love each person going on this retreat, Lord, start working on their hearts. Lord, let us be so wrapped up in You that in everything we do, and we say, that You are at the center of it all. Lord, let us be reminded that knowing You is the greatest, knowing You love us, really knowing it, believing it, that what it’s all about. Lord, Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Let them know You Lord.
