“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (NIV) 

The worship song I picked for today by Gungor is You Have Me and not only is the song absolutely beautiful but so is the meaning behind it. Life can be a bumpy road sometimes but God never leaves us, He is always there holding onto us. I love the chorus how it talks about God is always faithful and good, we can always count on Him!

You Have Me by Gungor 

[verse:]
Out on the farthest edge
There in the silence you were there
My faith was torn to shreds
My heart out of balance
And you were there

[chorus:]
Always faithful
Always good
You still
Have me
You still have my heart

[verse:]
I thought I had seen the end everything broken
But you were there
I’ve wandered at Heaven’s gate
I’ve made my bed in Hell
But you were there still

[chorus]

You have me
You have me
You have my heart completely (6x)

“Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.” Psalm 47:6 (NIV) 

Last night at the women’s event at church we sang this song. All day today it has been stuck in my head. God is everything we will ever need… He is everything when we feel like we won’t measure up. But, the truth is that in His arms we will always have enough! Praise God!

 

Forever Reign by Hillsong Live 

You are good, You are good
When there’s nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost it’s sting

Oh, I’m running to your arms,
I’m running to arms
The riches of your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In your presence I’m made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I’m letting go

Oh, I’m running to your arms
I’m running to arms
The riches of your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

My heart will sing
no other name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I’m running to your arms
I’m running to arms
The riches of your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:28-29 (NIV) 

 When I listening to this song it just puts me in a good mood. God is always with us. I love the part in the chorus where it says ‘consume me like a fire.’ When we let God consume us we will have “Something Beautiful” come over us! It is a beautiful thing when we completely give ourselves to God.

 

Something Beautiful by NeedToBreathe

In your ocean I’m ankle deep,
I feel the waves crashing on my feet;
It’s like I know where I need to be
But I can’t figure out,
I can’t figure out
Just how much air I will need to breathe
When your wave washes over me,
There’s only one way to figure out
Will you let me drown?
Will you let me drown?

Hey now, this is my desire
Consume me like a fire
‘Cause I just want
Something beautiful to touch me
I know that I’m in reach
‘Cause I am down on my knees
And waiting for
Something beautiful.
Oh-oh… something beautiful.

And the water is rising quick,
And for years I was scared of it.
We can’t be sure when it will subside
So I won’t leave your side,
No, I can’t leave your side.

Hey now, this is my desire
Consume me like a fire
‘Cause I just want
Something beautiful to touch me
I know that I’m in reach
‘Cause I am down on my knees
And waiting for
Something beautiful.
Oh-oh… something beautiful,
Oh-oh… something beautiful.

In a daydream
I couldn’t live like this
I wouldn’t stop until I found something beautiful.
But when I wake up
And all I want, I have
You know it’s still all I need – something beautiful.

Hey now, this is my desire
Consume me like a fire
‘Cause I just want
Something beautiful to touch me
I know that I’m in reach
‘Cause I am down on my knees
And waiting for
Something beautiful.
Oh-oh… something beautiful,
Oh-oh… something beautiful.

“Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious.” Psalm 66:2 (NIV) 

It’s Friday and that means… worship songs! This song is an older one and the band isn’t even the same people anymore, but it doesn’t make it any less wonderful! I loved this song when it first came out and I still love it today. As God’s children, I am sure it is the most beautiful thing for Him to hear us join together worshiping Him! He is worthy of all our praise, He reigns!

 

He Reigns by Newsboys 

It’s the song of the redeemed
Rising from the African plain
It’s the song of the forgiven
Drowning out the Amazon rain
The song of Asian believers
Filled with God’s holy fire
It’s every tribe, every tongue, every nation
A love song born of a grateful choir

It’s all God’s children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns

Let it rise about the four winds
Caught up in the heavenly sound
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals
To the faithful gathered underground
Of all the songs sung from the dawn of creation
Some were meant to persist
Of all the bells rung from a thousand steeples
None rings truer than this

And all the powers of darkness
Tremble at what they’ve just heard
‘Cause all the powers of darkness
Can’t drown out a single word

When all God’s children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns
All God’s people singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns

“Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.” Psalm 105:2 (NIV)

We sang this song at church not to long ago. What a powerful worship song it is! I was brought to tears while singing it just thinking about how great our God truly is. I know that He is great and powerful but sometimes when I just stop and take a moment to truly reflect on that thought I am in awe! There is no one like Him and with Him we can do all things!

Our God by Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman

Water You turned into wine
Open the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like You
None like You
Into the darkness You shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There’s no one like You
None like You

CHORUS
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…

Into the darkness you shining
Out of the ashes we Rise
There’s no One like You
None like You.

Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…

BRIDGE
And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?
And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?
What can stand against?
