Inspiration #29

I have no words to say
Don’t know what I should pray
God, I need You
God, I need You
Oh Lord, my faith is tired
And tears fill up my eyes
But I will trust You, I will trust You

Whatever comes my way
You have taught me to say

Amen, let Your kingdom come
Amen, let Your will be done
And through the rise and fall
You’re God above it all
Amen, we’re singing Amen

When I can barely stand
You strengthen me again
I will seek You, I will seek You
Though troubles may arise
My hands reach to the skies
I will praise You, I will praise You

Whatever comes my way
You have taught me to say

Amen, let Your kingdom come
Amen, let Your will be done
And through the rise and fall
You’re God above it all
Amen, we’re singing Amen
We’re singing Amen

From everlasting to everlasting
From everlasting to everlasting
From everlasting to everlasting
From everlasting to everlasting
Amen

-“Amen” by I Am They

Inspiration #28

My biggest storm, your drop of rain
My raging fire, your candle flame
My deepest ocean, is like a puddle at Your feet

My darkest valley, my greatest mountain
They are Your prairie, for You are constant
Your ways are higher than any other
So I will sing

God of the impossible
Maker of all miracles
I stand in awe of You
I am so amazed by how You
Reach into my brokenness
Make me beautiful again
I believe, yes I believe
Nothing is impossible with You

When I am weak, You are my strength
And all Your power is made complete
You turn my failures to victories
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Healer, Healer
I’m restored by a healer
Provider, Provider
I am filled by a provider
Deliverer, Deliverer
I’m saved by a deliverer
Savior, my Savior
I’m redeemed by a savior

—”God of the Impossible” by Sarah Reeves

This song came up when I was looking up some possible worship songs for the youth retreat I was a part of this year. Our theme was anxiety and trusting in God; although we didn’t end up using this song I still love the lyrics (despite the pre-recording sounding a bit corny hahaha). The chorus is probably my favourite and I love the contrasting in the first verse between our worries vs. God. I’ve said it before, and it’s been said many times elsewhere, God is the God of creation; of all things impossible, what makes you think He can’t take care of your storms and fires? lol

Have a listen, and I hope you find it as encouraging as I do:

Inspiration #27

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
–Proverbs 27:17

I was talking to my boyfriend about why church/fellowship is so important to our spiritual growth and thought of this verse.

I also compared the importance of fellowship to the things that help a plant grow. Plants need sun, soil, water, air, various nutrients from all those sources etc. to grow. Too much or too little of any of those parts probably isn’t good, and could result in the plant not growing properly. Our spiritual growth is similar. We need fellowship, we need prayer, scripture, service etc. for us to grow closer to God. If we don’t get enough of something, our growth becomes skewed.

Inspiration #26

You show Your majesty
In every star that shines
And every time we breathe
Your glory, God, revealed
From distant galaxies
To here beneath our skin

You are higher than we ever could imagine
And closer than our eyes could ever see
You are…

[Chorus]
Magnificent, You alone are holy
No one else as glorious as You
Magnificent, Jesus You are worthy
Who can shine as brightly as You do?
Magnificent
You’re so magnificent

You’re lighting up our lives
Illuminate our hearts
With everything You are

You are higher than we ever could imagine
And closer than our eyes could ever see
You are…

[Chorus]

You are higher than we ever could imagine
And closer than our eyes could ever see
We are pouring out our hearts here in Your presence

[Chorus]

–”Magnificent” by Matt Redman

Inspiration #25

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

[Chorus]

You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

[Chorus]

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

[Chorus x2]

Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
Lord, I’ll worship Your holy name

Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
I’ll worship Your holy name

–10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord), by Matt Redman

Inspiration #24

In moments like these
I sing out a song
I sing out a love song to Jesus

In moments like these
I lift up my hands
I lift up my hands to the Lord

Singing I love you Lord
Singing I love you Lord
Singing I love you Lord
I love you

Was at a worship workshop today and this song came to mind when the topic of being a leading worshiper worshipping genuinely instead of just a worship leader

Inspiration #23

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

–1 Corinthians 13:4–13

Been reflecting and kinda internally struggling through some personal things, today this verse came to mind to remind me that love, godly love is an embodiment of many things, and I should trust God with this.

One of my favourite verses too :)
