Story

I know the events in my life that have led up to the current state of my heart—-the softened, more humble state of surrender, the gratitude and love I feel.  But all of this still amazes me.  It amazes me how the Lord has gripped my heart.

I know how much I need Him. But not only that, I want more and more of Him in my life, and, in each chapter of my life he proves to me he is there and he has always been there. It is hard to explain when you feel like God has reached down and rescued you—–reached down and claimed you as his child.

I accepted Jesus, my personal Savior into my heart when I was 11 years old. But I will tell you, and I am sad to say, that I have not lived for him every day over the years. But…there is grace. Because of his amazing grace he has been molding me. He is so loving and patient and I am very happy to be on this journey with Him. I believe God has been molding our lives since before we were born.

Jeremiah 1:5     Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

I’ll leave you with a beautiful poem by Isaac Wimberley that brings tears to my eyes.  My God is simply amazing and words cannot describe what he has even done for me.

“The Word”   by Isaac Wimberley

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them.

You see my brain has not yet reached a point
Where it could form a thought
That could adequately describe the greatness of my God

And my lungs have not yet developed the ability
To release a breath with enough agility
To breathe out the greatness of His love

And my voice, my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits
That it’s hard to even send a praise up

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

My God

His grace is remarkable
Mercies are innumerable
Strength is impenetrable

He is honorable, accountable, and favorable
Unsearchable yet knowable
Indefinable yet approachable
Indescribable yet personal

He is beyond comprehension
Further than imagination
Constant through generations
King of every nation

But
If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my words are few
And to try and capture the one TRUE God
Using my vocabulary will never do

But I use my words as an expression
An expression of worship to a Savior
A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise

So I use words

My heart extols the Lord
Blesses His name forever
He has won my heart, captured my mind
And has bound them both together

He has defeated me in my rebellion
Conquered me in my sin
He has welcomed me into His presence
Completely invited me in

He has made Himself the object of my sight
Flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night

But
If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

But what I do have…Is Good News
For my God knew that man-made words would never do
For words are just tools that we use
To point to the Truth
So He sent his son Jesus Christ as THE WORD
Living proof

He is the image of the invisible God
The firstborn of all creation
For by Him all things were created
Giving nothingness formation

And by His word He sustains, in the power of His name
For He is before all things and over all things He reigns
HOLY IS HIS NAME!!

Praise Him for His life
The way He presevered in strife
The humble Son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice

Praise Him for His death
That he willingly stood in our place
That he lovingly endured the grave
That He battled our enemy
And on the third day rose in victory

Praise Him because He rose!!
Hallelujah He rose!!
He is everything that was promised

Praise Him as the risen King
Lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us and we will finally be
United with our Savior for eternity

So it’s not just words that I proclaim
For my words point to the WORD
And the WORD has a name
Hope has a name
Joy has a name
Peace has a name
Love has a name
And that name is Jesus Christ
Praise His name FOREVER!
