New Song

Tonight at church I learned a new song. Here are the lyrics:

Let my life be Your love song
Everyday sing to You
May my heart always please You
As a sweet offering
I am satisfied in You
Come be glorified in me
All of my life You've been faithful
My Savior my King and my Friend
All of my life I will lay down
To love You with all that I am

Pretty cool, huh? Just FYI, it's called "Love Song," written by Glenn Packiam and is on an album by "Desperation Band."

Tonight's church service was so great. It was one of those where you think, "Ok, God, I get it. This service was tailor made for me." The songs, the sermon, it all addressed things we're specifically going through right now. Thank you, Lord.

We also sang an old favorite hymn of mine called "Blessed Assurance." Again, here are the lyrics:

1. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.

2. Perfect submission, perfect delight,
visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
angels descending bring from above
echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

3. Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

These songs made me think about how, if God would've done nothing else in my life after He granted me salvation, that still would've been more than enough. The fact that I could stand in front of the Great Judge on Judgment day, and He would pronounce me as pardoned, pure and blameless because His Son had already taken my punishment...really is more than I could ever ask for, or deserve. That's why I like the line in the new song, "I am satisfied in You; Come be glorified in me." God has given me so much more, grace upon grace...A family, friends, etc. It's very awe-inspiring!

Anyhow, to hopefully balance the venting of my last post, things have been going better. No more sleepless nights so far! Charlie's still needing a lot of discipline (I won't go into the cornstarch incident today...) but overall we're surviving. ;)

And to end on a happy note, here's Charlie boxing on the Wii tonight.
