Word of God SPEAK!

It is Sunday morning, and before I get ready for church and all the chaos there (being a working musician equals a busy Sunday!) I want to share one of my favorite songs with you. This song touches me at the deepest core of my being. When it comes on the radio, I have to stop and listen. I have no choice. It’s like the Holy Spirit compels me to stop whatever I’m doing and listen to this song.

Word of God Speak From MercyMe…
I’m finding myself at a loss for words and the funny thing is, it’s okay.
The last thing I need is to be heard,
But to hear what You would say.

Word of God, speak.
Would you pour down like rain, washing my eyes to see Your majesty?
To be still and know
that You’re in this place?
Please let me stay and rest
in Your holiness. Word of God, speak.

And there it is. That’s why I must stop. I want to stay and rest in His holiness. It’s my safe place. It’s where I’m most relaxed and at rest and it’s hard to leave it for the real world.

More lyrics…

I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise.
All that I need is to be with You and
In the quiet, to hear Your voice

This song makes me feel more connected to God than practically any other song. (That’s hard for me to say because I don’t have a favorite.)

So here I am in the quiet of my studio this morning, and I stop everything to listen and write down these words and my thoughts. On this Sabbath when I know I won’t have much rest, I want to be still and know that God is in this place. I can stay and rest in His holiness any place. Any time.
