As I sat here listening to that song and reliving that moment from almost 10 years ago, I admit, I was wondering why it wasn’t like that anymore? Had I forgotten just how powerful God was? What was it that stopped me from being so caught up in all that He is that the cares of this world just disappear?
…the cares of this world…
I had forgotten how big God is. I had forgotten that He holds all of me in His hands. He is in control, not me…and not the cares of this world. I had let my situations and circumstances, no matter how petty or overwhelming they might be, dictate how big God is instead of letting how big God is dictate how small my situations and circumstances were.
As I’m wrapping up this note, another song comes on the radio and its so fitting. “Show Me Your Glory” by Third Day. And that is my prayer. “Show me Your glory…I wanna see Your face,” then I can once again be in awe of You and all that You are, and when I get back to “my life” I won’t settle for ordinary things.
These are the lyrics to “Shout to the Lord” and “Show Me Your Glory”. If you’ve never heard them, you should look them up. They are great songs.
Shout to the Lord
My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love
My comfort, my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You
Shout to the Lord
All the Earth, let us sing
Power and majesty
Praise to the King
Mountains bow down
And the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name
I sing for joy at the works
Of Your hands
Forever I’ll love You
Forever I’ll stand
To the promise I have
Show Me Your Glory
I caught a glimpse of your splendor
In the corner of my eye
The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen
It was like a flash of lightning
Reflected off the sky
And I know, I’ll never be the same
Show me Your Glory.
Send down Your presence
I wanna see Your face.
Show me Your glory.
Majesty shines about You,
I can’t go on without You Lord.
When I climb down the mountain,
and get back to my life,
I won’t settle for ordinary things.
I’m gonna follow You forever
For all of my days
I won’t rest ’till I see You again
