Wonderful…

First–check out the blog of Chris Jensen, another friend of mine from Northern California. He is one awesome musician, and is sold-out for Jesus Christ. Link is on the right.

Last Friday, as I was driving through the golden foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, a song popped into my head…I decided to stop my CD player and turn on the radio, in hopes that I might hear this song…the Lord answered my prayer, and the song came on within 10 minutes.

I have spent a great deal of time over the past few weeks pondering the greatness of God, and have been so humbled and mystified by His love for me…for all of us…why does He love us so, when we continually stray from His leading, or we deliberately choose to go our own way…

As I was in Yosemite National Park this weekend, I was just amazed by the incredible beauty around me…by the lack of light pollution that allowed for thousands upon thousands of stars to be visible…of the detailed landscape He has created for our pleasure…

Why? Why did He do this?

I know that the Bible gives us plenty of answers, especially in 1 John…but it is still a beautiful mystery to me…and I like it that way!

If you haven’t heard of this group “Casting Crowns” before, PLEASE check them out! They are absolutely incredible…I am SO thankful that Duane introduced me to them on my 21st birthday, because their lyrics have been so convicting and thought-provoking.

Here are the lyrics to the song…

Who Am I

Lyrics by Mark Hall

Music by Casting Crowns

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth

Would care to know my name

Would care to feel my hurt

Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star

Would choose to light the way

For my ever wandering heart

Not because of who I am

But because of what You’ve done

Not because of what I’ve done

But because of who You’re

Chorus:

I am a flower quickly fading

Here today and gone tomorrow

A wave tossed in the ocean

A vapor in the wind

Still You hear me when I’m calling

Lord, You catch me when I’m falling

And You’ve told me who I am

I am Yours, I am Yours

Who Am I, that the eyes that see my sin

Would look on me with love and watch me rise again

Who Am I, that the voice that calmed the sea

Would call out through the rain

And calm the storm in me

I am Yours

Whom shall I fear

Whom shall I fear

‘Cause I am Yours

I am Yours

What a wonderful song, and what a wonderful God…
