Music inspires me. Music connects me. Music gives me a song.
Music. I am not much on a musician but I am quite a musical consumer.
Music. Gets in my soul.
Music makes me come alive.
Especially worship music.
I love me some passionate, God centered worship!
My new favorite is Elevation Worship, and their song “Jesus I Come”
The part that gets me is the lyric that says
“Thank you Jesus, just as I am I come.. Hallelujah oh what amazing love”
Oh those words just penetrate my heart..
“Thank you Jesus, just as I am I come”
Can I just say what an awesome God do we have?
He does not judge us. He does not have a standard we must meet, but opens his arms freely.
Was Jesus not that perfect representation of God the Father? Hanging there on the cross in love with arms stretched wide.. open. Inviting. Come. I offer all I have.
When defeat seems to be taking the lead. When despair starts to overwhelm the soul. When moving forward seems all but impossible. Hearing those words. Envisioning Jesus. Causes something to rise up in me.. something uncontainable that says.. IT IS NOT OVER YET! The battle has been won. You are not defeated. Christ has already came and defeated all, even death.
As the words, the picture consume me.. I am brought to my knees.. and what more can I say than..
“Thank you Jesus, just as I am I come… Hallelujah oh what amazing love”
