Archives For consume

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.

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 (NIV)

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)

I am so bad when it comes to worrying about the “what if.” What are the “what ifs” that I worry about? Well, will I get sick. Will my son or husband get sick. Why does my arm hurt, could it be something bad (or something along this idea)? Will our finances always be taken care of? What would I do if something happened to my husband. When we were trying to get pregnant I worried we wouldn’t be able to. What if that person doesn’t like me. That should give you a little idea about some of the things I worry about. I know I am not the only one who thinks about these things. It is almost like second nature to entertain these thoughts. The only problem is that they are what ifs. They are not the present and reality of what is going on. We can not see the future or control it, so then why do we worry about it? Not long ago I heard my pastor talk about fear. When we fear we are putting our faith in the what ifs. Isn’t that exactly what we are doing when we worry? I felt like he was talking right to me. Right then I decided to give it up to God. Instead of being weighed down by situations beyond my control I am giving it to Him. Now, I will be the first to tell you I am not perfect and I mess up often, in fact just yesterday I worried. But, with God’s help I will not let the life of worrying consume me, I will not put my faith in the what ifs!
