I tap the app for YouTube and I type Casting Crowns by the blinking cursor in the search box. I can’t think of the name of their song I’m searching for. I scroll a bit and then, there it is! Thrive.
I tap the box and tap the play and in as many seconds the music begins sounding from the speaker on my phone.
The notes hang in the air and in my heart and then my favorite part begins to play.
Words I’d rather forgotten about.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
Unplanned, unbidden, sobs well up inside and tears slide down my cheeks. I was not expecting this reaction in myself. The music and words are beautiful and I needed this reminder.
Too often, too easily, I feel sinkable, faith faltering and floundering, instead of floating on God’s grace. I find myself flapping franctically in worry or fear instead of focusing on the joy set before me.
Psalm 77 reminds me with these age-old words…. Verse 7&8 ~ will the Lord reject forever and never again show favor? Has His faithful love ceased forever? Is His promise at an end for all generations?
Verse 12 ~ I will reflect on all You have done and meditate on Your actions.
verse 14 ~ You are the God who works wonders; You revealed Your strength among the peoples.
YOU ARE THE GOD WHO WORKS WONDERS. YOUR WAY IS HOLY.
You are the God who sees me, loves me, works the wonder of producing JOY UNSPEAKABLE, FAITH UNSINKABLE, LOVE UNSTOPPABLE, in me. Because I can’t. I can not produce apart from you.
I lean back against Your comforting, sheltering strength and float upon Your grace and lift my eager face with delight to bask in the reflection of Your light and love.
Hallelujah! My Jesus.
