Forever Reign

There are some things in this world that are the “one and only.” Nothing else compares and no imitation will do. Like real cheese on a pizza, not that fake cheese. For me, it’s real… And I do mean REAL… Mashed potatoes. Grown in the ground, cooked, smashed potatoes can never be replaced. Period. I can smell instant mashed potatoes a mile away, and they will never do.

The song in my head as I write is reminding me that nothing can compare to the love of God. One Sonic Society is singing the chorus of their song, “Forever Reign.

I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
And nothing compares
To Your embrace
Light of the world
Forever reign

There is no comparison for the real thing. The true love of God. Nothing can take the place of God in my heart. And believe me, I’ve tried to fill that God-shaped hole with food, music, children, things, money… Even Bible study. But to feel the embrace of God through His Word at 5:30 in the morning when I’m alone in my studio… There is no comparison.

Sometimes I get wet with the work of the Spirit when the wave of the gospel floods over me. My sweetest moments in life are when I am working through a passage of scripture or writing about the music He is singing over me, and I feel this wash of warmth and peace. Sometimes I just have to stop and let the tears come and worship for a while.

Light of the World, forever reign!!!
