Worship Wednesday – Forever Reign

WorshipWednesday

This song slayed me this past Sunday.  The words are amazing…you are good, you are good when there’s nothing good in me….yes Lord, when my thoughts are dark, when I turn to sin, you are good.  You are joy, you are joy, you’re the reason that I sing…you are life, you are life.  In you death has lost it’s sting!!!!  Because Jesus died for our sins, death has lost it’s sting to those who believe.  I sing because he is who he says he is!  I’m running to your arms, I’m running to your arms, the riches of your love will always be enough!  Nothing compares to your embrace.  Light of the world forever reign…..my heart will sing no other name, Jesus, Jesus.  Each time I sing this song, my prayer is that my heart would sing no other name but the name of Jesus…not the clothes I’m wearing, not the people who like or don’t like me, not my job, not this world, but that I would only sing the name of Jesus.  He is the one I long to please and no one else.  OK, that was a muddled paragraph…thanks for sticking with me…here’s the song and it’s powerful lyrics.  Turn off the lights, close your eyes and use this song as a prayer to the Lord.

You are good, You are good
When there’s nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms.
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I’m made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I’m letting go

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough

Do you believe that?  That God’s love will always be enough?  I do, and that’s why I lost it on Sunday.  I don’t deserve his love, none of us do yet we receive his gift by faith.  Thank you Jesus!!!  If you don’t have that assurance, I’d love to talk to you about that.  I hope you enjoyed this week’s Worship Wednesday!  What are you listening to these days??
