This morning in worship, we talked about the cyclic nature of our lives and the valleys and mountaintops we inevitably go through. We sang this beautiful and poignant song that I had never heard before. I want to share the lyrics with you. The song is called "Overwhelm Me".
Take not Thy presence from me
for I desire to know You more
For you are worthy of all,
You’re worthy of all I am and more
I need to set my mind on things above,
on the holiness and glory of my God
In the heavens and in my heart
Who created a mountain
And Who set a spark that grew into a flame
that burns deeply for You
Overwhelm me Take me from this place and
put me in the place where You are
Overwhelm me Shake the ground I stand on
I want to be dependent on You…on only You.
