the old songs still ring true…

Sometimes the old songs are the most healing. I remember listening to this years ago, yet it contains the truth I needed today. What a good God I know and love, who does not change and uses the same truth to lift me up again and again.

 

I’m swept away by the wonder of Your love
How One so great could love this one so small
And when I realize the distance between Your heart and mine
I’m amazed when You call me to Your side
I come to You
Not in my own strength
But in my weakness I embrace the One who’s strong
I come to You

To glory in Your grace
You’ve accepted me
In my frailty
So in humility
I come to You

I stand in awe at the power of Your grace
How One so great would suffer in my place
And when I realize the difference
Between Your thoughts and mine
I’m amazed when You call me to Your side

I surrender all I am
Lay my heart within Your hand
Knowing in my weakness You are strong
I come to You
Not in my own strength
But in weakness
I embrace the One so strong
I come to You
To glory in Your grace
You’ve accepted me in my frailty
So in humility

I come to You

 

(Bob Fitts, “I Come To You”)

 

My weakness becomes strength when I bring it to Him. I’m learning it again today, and will again tomorrow, and the next day and the next. I want to keep learning.
