A Spirit-filled Moment

MercyMe writes some awesome, God-centered, God-honoring music. I about cried listening to this today.

“I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I’ve gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It’s never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray…

Bring me joy, bring me peace; Bring the chance to be free; Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there’ll be days; When this life brings me pain;
But if that’s what it takes to praise You; Jesus, bring the rain

I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what’s a little rain
So I pray

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty”

Now that’s some righteous listening.

I had to hold back the rain of tears today as I was driving listening to this song when the words really hit home. I felt an overwhelmed with peace, joy, fear, anxiety, all at once. I was also compelled to expound on the gist of this song to my children since we were just lip syncing it.  Why we mindlessly listen and sing songs with no God-centered purpose is likely b/c of our sin nature, but a fight none the less.  Trials come and go through this journey we call life, and God is not separate from any of it. I cannot honestly say even at this point in my faith that I could say those words truthfully. I have fears and worries, but my Lord God Almighty sees through them all, knows them all, and is sovereign over them all. I lack such faith to sing such words that it scares me. But I know for certain that Jesus is for me b/c the bible tells me so (Rom 8:27, 8:34) and the Holy Spirit intercedes on my behalf. What a peace that knowledge should bring!  It made me draw to my Savior.  I think that’s the point.
