"I made You promises a thousand times
I tried to hear from Heaven
But I talked the whole time
I think I made You too small
I never feared You at all No
If You touched my face would I know You?
Looked into my eyes could I behold You?
What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? What do I know of Holy?
I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees
What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?
And a God who gave life "its" name?
What do I know of Holy?
Of the One who the angels praise?
All creation knows Your name
On earth and heaven above
What do I know of this love?
What do I know of Holy?"

This was the final product:
1. Individual relationships must first be Christ-centered in order to have more quality time in group settings.
Since that time, we have all been striving for more godliness in our time together
Thank you Jesus for your work in us!

A couple days ago I was listening to 93.9 in the morning and a preacher was talking about trusting God, then I finally got it. I have not been trusting God! I keep stressing out and thinking that I am in control when I am not at all, I listened to another sermon about it by Jerry Bridges that was also helpful in setting my mind straight. But then I find myself stressing out again with all the worries of life and I lack faith in the promises of God again... I found myself mindlessly singing along to Jadon Lavik's Tis So Sweet while stressing out and then finally I realized what words were coming out of my mouth:
"Jesus, Jesus how I trust Him!
How I've proved Him o'er and o'er
Jesus, Jesus precious Jesus
O for grace to trust Him more!"
I have no idea how I was able to sing that while stressing out but I see that it takes work to be always trusting in Jesus and it takes a deliberate conscious awareness of reality to keep my mindset correct.
Lord help me trust in you. Amen.
