desires

I love when God smacks me over the head with a truth and then confirms it with His word when I’m still searching in the depths of my head trying to find a rebuttal…and sure, i’ll probably keep on pondering for a while and searching the Word, but this takes a new twist in my pondering and trust… =)

Psalm 145:9, 13, 15, 16, 19

The Lord is good to all;

He has compassion on all He has made

The Lord is faithful to all his promises

and loving toward all He has made

The eyes of all look to You….

You open your hand

and satisfy the desires of every living thing

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him

 

Not to mention these other lovely verses that go along with it….

Psalm 37: 4

Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Proverbs 13:4

The desire of the diligent shall be fully satisfied.

 

 

iTunes Thursday: Bethel Live (Be Lifted High)

I just bought the new Bethel Live Be Lifted High cd on Tuesday on itunes and I’m just a *bit* in love with it already…and these lyrics are exactly why (I’m a girl who loves lyrics through and through–they make or break a song).

I was afraid Your love set me free

I was alone til You called my name

I was broken and You mended me

You journal every day all about my life.

I was ashamed You called me beautiful

Now I’m Yours, You call me beautiful

~~

His love is fierce

His love is strong

It is furious

~~

God I look to you, I won’t be overwhelmed

Give me vision to see things like you do

Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

Forever all my days I will love You God

~~

He’s bringing hope to the hopeless

and giving His heart to the broken

~~

If He goes to the left then we’re going to the left

If He goes to the right then we’re going to the right

~~

Never to forget the day, Your love broke through to make a way

for hope to rise within my heart again

~~

 

So, go listen to it because it’s lovely.  Any other new music that’s got you listening on repeat?
