Times | Worship Post #1

So i’m going to start doing a series of posts on worship.. not really much typing as it is just music.. an opportunity to break away from the noise and just focus on God. I’m going to post these randomly whenever I’m hungry for Christ. I need more daily worship in my life..and if you do too, then I hope you like this new series. You can click on the categories link to the right and go to “worship time” and see future posts all together..whenever you need a worship fix.

I’ve never heard this song before tonight. & I love it.

I have one friend that I haven’t talked to in a few weeks..this song reminds me of us. Our last conversation was about wanting to be better in our relationships with God, among a few other things. Truth: I miss you.

 “Are you done forgiving? Oh can you look past my pretending? Lord, I’m so tired of defending, what I’ve become. What have I become?”

To me this song is complete surrender to God and the need for dependence on Him.

So close your eyes and let this song be your simple prayer today. Let the melodies and lyrics consume you. Wrap the lyrics around your heart and worship with me.

I know I need You
I need to love You
I love to see You,
but it’s been so long
I long to feel You
I feel this need for You
And I need to hear You, is that so wrong?Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

Now You pull me near You
When we’re close, I fear You
Still I’m afraid to tell You,
all that I’ve done
Are You done forgiving?
Oh can You look past my pretending?
Lord, I’m so tired of defending,
what I’ve become
What have I become?

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

I hear You say, “My love is over. It’s underneath. It’s inside. It’s in between. The times you doubt Me, when you can’t feel. The times that you question, ‘Is this for real?’ The times you’re broken. The times that you mend. The times that you hate Me, and the times that you bend. Well, My love is over, it’s underneath. It’s inside, it’s in between. These times you’re healing, and when your heart breaks. The times that you feel like you’re falling from grace. The times you’re hurting. The times that you heal. The times you go hungry, and are tempted to steal. The times of confusion, in chaos and pain. I’m there in your sorrow, under the weight of your shame. I’m there through your heartache. I’m there in the storm. My love I will keep you, by My pow’r alone. I don’t care where you fall, where you have been. I’ll never forsake you, My love never ends. It never ends.”

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

I’d love to know your thoughts on this new series, what God is doing in your life, or worship in general.


One thought on “Times | Worship Post #1

  1. Love….I have been feeling the same call in my heart lately-I don’t have enough conversations with God, or spend enough time with Him just listening. I used to look at God as a judge in a black robe judging my every move-yesterday when we left church, I was posting on facebook and I typed “…my heavenly Daddy” and I stopped and thought-I’m no longer seeing Him as that judge, but my Dad…My relationship is changing, but I want more of God, just like I know He wants more of me. Thanks for the post!
