All day, pretty much every day, I have music playing. Sometimes it’s worship music, and sometimes it’s not. While I really like any good music, there is just something about good music that worships the King! So here is what is going to happen…I’m going to start posting some of my favorite worship tunes that are current or old, and include some reasons why I like them so much. The way it will work best is to click play on the video, then read the few lines I have posted. I know you all have better things to do than to spend 5 minutes reading my blog, so thanks!
Cris and I had the privilege of seeing Hillsong United live a couple weeks ago and they were freakin amazing! There is such an amazing feeling of standing in worship with 15 thousand folks making a joyful noise. “Like An Avalanche” is one of my favorite tunes these days! First, I can relate to feeling of finding myself on my knees worshiping the Lord of Grace! In Romans 7:15-17, Paul says, “For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Now If I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin who dwells within me.” When I first read those words in high school I will never forget the feeling I received. I could relate perfectly Paul (and that may be the only time I can say that!). What it comes to is that when I try to do things on my own, I usually mess them up because of my prideful and foolish ways.
But, 2 Corinthians 12:9 also says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in your weakness! Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that he power of Christ may rest upon me.” Knowing this truth, how can we ignore Him and turn away from such an amazing gift?
Jesus, take my heart and take all that I am! With all that I am, I will love you! Take my heart, take all that I have, Jesus how I adore you! And I find myself here on my knees again, caught up in grace like an avalanche! NOTHING compares to this love!
