Outpourings from an imperfect but redeemed & treasured heart of clay.

One of those songs…

I know I’ve mainly posted a lot of songs lately, instead of just writing.  I’ve been “busy” I suppose, and haven’t had the chance to really write out things God is doing.  He is doing a lot though!  Praise His name!

In my time with Him this morning, I was listening to some music that glorifies Him as we “talked”.  Do you have a song that just really impacts you, pretty much every time, no matter how many times you’ve listened to it?  I have quite a few, but this is one that I heard again this morning.  It reminds me of Who this life is about and who I’m living in and for.  That even if we “live” normal lives, He can still be glorified in every little thing we do.

When my focus and desire starts wavering, this song is a great reminder of the Audience I’m living for…

I come on my knees to lay down before You
Bringing all that I am, longing only to know You
Seeking Your face, and not only Your hand
I find You embracing me just as I am

And I lift these songs to You and You alone
As I sing to You in my praises make Your home

To my audience of one, You are Father, and You are Son
As Your Spirit flows free, let it find within me
A heart that beats to praise You
And now just to know You more has become my great reward
To see Your kingdom come and Your will be done
I only desire to be Yours, Lord

So what could I bring to honor Your majesty?
What song could I sing that would move the heart of royalty?
And all that I have is this life that You’ve given me
So Lord, let me live for You, my song with humility

And Lord, as the love song of my life is played
I have one desire to bring glory to Your name

By the way, I normally just listen to the song and don’t watch the video.

Psalms 27:3 is a good verse of what our desire should be.  David’s writing is beautiful, and since he was a man after God’s own heart – I’d say it’s pretty potent stuff to also adopt in our hearts. :)

One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.

This is my desire! Be my One desire, Lord. You’re beautiful.

  2. I actually had never heard "There is a day" by Phatfish, thank you for sharing! :)

    Definitely, In Christ Alone is another one of those songs that always hits me. One of my favorites for sure!
