This weekend we are singing Only You, I just love this song. The lyrics have been weighing heavily on my heart this week and tonight I understood why.......
Only You can fill my deepest longing
Only You can breathe in me new life
Only you can fill my heart with laughter
Only you can answer my heart's cry
For so many years, I was yearning for something, searching everywhere for it....I kept trying to "fix it" with things of this world....shopping fixes, people pleasing, getting lost in the party scene, etc.....and then I ran smack dab into my Maker, my Heavenly Father.....He filled my deepest longing.....He put the breath of life into me, and I no longer have to search...to yearn, for something to make me feel full...because I am full...full of Him! (it's better than what I used to be full of ! :) Each year I pray that God will show me something new for the Easter season, that I would see the passion in a whole new way, gain new understanding and perspective, and tonight...God showed me where He wants my focus. I am to focus on His power, and what embracing His power means for people's lives. He has pushed my passion buttons and now I am on fire for the services. Praise you Lord for you are Holy, Praise you Lord for you are Mighty, Praise you Lord for you are YOU!, and Praise you Lord for you are Powerful, transformational, beautiful. I praise you Lord for filling me with YOU!
