This morning I was reading in Romans, and I was in chapter 7, where Paul is talking about his struggle with sin and how he constantly goes back and forth between doing what he wants to do and doing what he should do in order to please the Lord. And the song "Holy" by Jesus Culture popped into my head. I just thought about how God is holy, perfect, blameless. He is good. He is eternal. But most of all He is holy. Set apart and without blemish or imperfection. Holy.
So this morning after walking the dog, I came back and put that song on and listened to it as I got ready for church. I love the simplicity of the lyrics:
And only one word comes to mind
There's only one word to describe
Holy, holy, Lord God almighty
There is no one like You
You are holy, holy
So this morning in church, worship was good as usual, but then our leader Winston started playing a song on his guitar that sounded much like the one I had been singing all morning. Holy. I thought to myself, no way. There was a new introduction that I had not heard before; it spoke of what it will be like in heaven when we are all casting our crowns at His feet. Mmmm what a sweet image. That thought took me back to my discussion of heaven with the kiddos this week. Good memories.We haven't done this song before and there isn't a Spanish version that I know of. But we sang it. I love hearing the voices of my church family lifted high in both Spanish and English. I love hearing people sing like they mean it.
Una palabra te describirá
Solo una palabra puedo expresar
Santo, santo Dios poderoso
No hay nadie como Tu
Tu eres santo
I was just so overwhelmed by the Father's love for me this morning. We all go around saying that we know God loves us and that He cares for us, but it is so meaningful when He shows us in a deeply intimate way that He cares for us. Worship was wonderful this morning, and it lifted my countenance for the entire day. I love Him. He is way too good to me.
