I love love love love this song.  I heard it at a c3 conference at the start of the year and something just “captured” my heart.  Since then I’ve listened to it at least once a day and its on my nightly worship playlist.

Better is one day in your courts than anywhere elsewhere.

There is nothing like Jesus that satisfies.  In Him I find life.  In Him I find hope.  In Him I find love.

Enjoy.

 

Ever feel like you’re just not there yet?  Or that you take one step forward and a trillion steps backwards?  Or that every time you dream it is dashed by failure?

 

Don’t let your failures hold you back from dreaming again and from living that dream out.

Take a step.

In God’s kingdom nothing is wasted.  There are no missed opportunities or failures, just teachable moments.  Learn the lesson.  Become bigger.

He works all things for good.

Failure is just a bruise, not a tattoo.

The good news of the gospel is that Jesus did not wait until we were loving before He loved us; He didn’t even wait till we asked Him to love us before He loved us—He loved us in our unloveliness. And His love for us births love in us, which bleeds love through us to those around us. ~ Tullian Tchividjian

Steve Backlund once said, “Nothing happens in the kingdom unless a declaration is made.” Declarations are powerful because God has placed authority in our words. As His children, we can…

“I will kneel in the dust, at the foot of the cross, where mercy paid for me.”

As good stewards of the manifold grace of God, each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve one another. If anyone speaks, he should speak as one conveying the words of God. If anyone serves, he should serve with the strength God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.…  1 Peter 4:10-11

Imagine a world where everyone was the same?

It’s not real.  It’s not possible.

Imagine a song that was just one note.

Songs need melody, harmony, lows and highs.

God has uniquely created each one of us to play our own notes.

When we wish away our gifts and wish upon us the gifts and life of someone else we play someone elses note.  We reduce the song.  We reduce the creativity of God.

You are crafted by God to play your own song.

The world needs your song.  It needs what you give, what you contribute.

The world will never discover the beauty you have to offer if you dont.

Your gift is not just for you, expose it to the light and let it feed the world.

Let your song bring healing and hope.

Let your notes tell His story and your story.

Let your notes impart wisdom and grace.

Let your notes lead.

Let them serve.

Be part of the great symphony God has written.

There is no monotone in the kingdom of God.

 

Sometimes there are songs that we need to sing.

Songs that rewrite truth into our hearts.

That renew our mind.

That breathe hope when we can feel hopeless, love when we feel unlovely.

This song is such.

Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought meh?

Ever taken personally someones mean words, taken them to heart, made them a truth?

Have you ever felt like you were not ________________ enough (you can fill in the blank)?

Let me tell your heart this – You are enough.   You are worthy.

Today, look in the mirror and speak the truth that comes from God.

That you are loved.

Called.

Chosen.

That before you were born God purposed you, on purpose, with purpose.

You are His.

You have worth.

Let His truth speak to your heart.

My heart longs for more of God.

To hear Him more.

To know Him more.

To make Him known more.

It is the beat of my heart.

And thus I must make room for this in my life.  Room to worship. Room to spend time with God.  Room to be in His presence.  Room to read His word.  Room to hear His voice.

Other things try to crowd out that space I could carve out for Him.  They fight for my attention and affection.

But my heart belongs to God.

So I choose.

I choose Him.

With my time.  With my action.  With my thoughts. With my worship.

 

Oh no, not another Oceans version you say…. or you might be like ooooh another Oceans version!

I love the song Oceans!  And I love Phil Wickham.  This is an awesome version, live at ONETHING conference and full of passion and prayer.

Take a moment to let God breathe new life into your heart today!
