Much Of You

I have been so blessed by the offers of prayer and the encouragements I have received lately. I just thank you so much for that. My struggle is ongoing, and some parts of my days are really hard, but I guess that just makes the answers to prayer and the good moments that much sweeter. I will share that while I am in awe of God and love Him and want always to follow Him and seek to share Him, I always long to see more of Him and ache sometimes to see Him move in my life. In this past week I have experienced very needed moments of answered prayer, visible and tangible moments where my heart has swelled with the feeling and the KNOWING that my God is a GREAT God who loves me so dearly and is every bit as big and real and awesome as He has always been and will always be, the same God who parted the Red Sea, who made the sun and the moon stand still, who calmed a storm with his voice.

I heard this song today by Steven Curtis Chapman. It's a great song. I've embedded it so you can listen too and I'll put the lyrics below.

Much of You
How could I stand here
And watch the sun rise
Follow the mountains
Where they touch the sky
Ponder the vastness
And the depths of the sea
And think for a moment
The point of it all was to make much of me
Cause I'm just a whisper
And You are the thunder and
I want to make much of You, Jesus
I want to make much of Your love
I want to live today to give You the praise
That You alone are so worthy of
I want to make much of Your mercy
I want to make much of Your cross
I give You my life
Take it and let it be used
To make much of You
And how can I kneel here
And think of the cross
The thorns and the whip and the nails and the spear
The infinite cost
To purchase my pardon
And bear all my shame
To think I have anything worth boasting in except for Your name
Cause I am a sinner
And You are the Savior
I want to make much of You, Jesus
I want to make much of Your love
I want to live today to give You the praise
That You alone are so worthy of
I want to make much of Your mercy
I want to make much of Your cross
I give You my life
Take it and let it be used
To make much of You
This is Your love, oh God
Not to make much of me
But to send Your own son
So that we could make much of You
For all eternity
I want to make much of You Jesus
I want to make much of Your love
I want to live today to give You the praise
That You alone are so worthy of
I want to make much of Your mercy
I want to make much of Your cross
I give You my life
Take it and let it be used
To make much of You
I want to make much of You
Much of You Jesus
