“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)

The song I picked for today is an older one, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus. This clip that I found is of Hillsong singing the chorus, the crowd joins in and it is just beautiful! I love this song, I remember singing many other hymns growing up at church and sometimes its just wonderful hearing those old hymns again. The video only has the chorus but I have posted all the lyrics below. Nothing is too much for our God, just listen to the chorus!

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Saviour,
And life more abundant and free.

Refrain
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His Glory and Grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion –
For more than conquerors we are!

Refrain
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His Glory and Grace.

His Word shall not fail you – He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well;
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell.

Refrain
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His Glory and Grace.

He is Faithful

“Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!” Great is Thy Faithfulness by Thomas O. Chisolm and William Runyan

“Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.” Psalm 36:5 (NIV) 

I grew up in a church that sang the old hymns each Sunday. I haven’t had a hymn stuck in my head in a long time. Usually I have a song from Air1 playing in my head. This morning however I woke up with an old hymn on my mind, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” Last night I got a text from a friend saying that they closed the deal to sell their house. They have been trying for a while to sell their home and the day finally came! God is so faithful! No matter the circumstance, whether we feel its big or small He never fails, He is always faithful! The chorus in the song says, “All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—” This was a great reminder for me, there has never been a need that He has not met. For some reason I still allow myself to get worried or stressed about things but eventually I am always reminded of the truth that God is always faithful to meet my needs!
