You Are Mine (By Third Day) Video, Lyrics and Musings



It doesn't take much
For my heart to break
And you have done it
For what's seems the millionth time

Whenever I hear
Of your saving grace
And how you gave your life
In exchange for mine

Sometimes I wonder why you even love me
And why you ever chose to call me child
Then I remember
It's by your sacrifice
I can say that
I am yours and you are mine

It doesn't take much
For me to shed a tear
And you have done so many things
To make me cry
Whenever I think
Of all that I've done wrong
And everything that you have done
To make it right

It doesn't take much
For my heart to break
And you have done it
For what's seems the millionth time


*****

I woke up in the middle of the night with such anxiety in my heart. And I felt really discouraged. What do I keep on worrying about things I do not even know about .. about things that I do not have control of. And then I wondered, is this lack of trust? Do I really trust my Lord and my God? If I do, then why do I worry? Why do I worry when I know in my heart that nothing is impossible with God. Why am I anxious when I believe in God ... when I know and believe that God is able, and that He exceedingly provides to those he loves. And that I know that nothing... nothing could separate me from the love of God...

I do not know the answer. But God does. And He is patient. He is patient with me more than I can tell.

I wondered around Facebook and Allison's twit/post caught my eyes. She said she's loving the song "You Are Mine" by Third Day. I love many of the worship songs sang by Third Day, and so I clicked her link to listen to it (as I had not heard that one before). The rest of the story is a precious reminder that God meets us where we are. He met me, right here...right now...and my heart is broken. So here's goes the lyrics that makes my soul sings:

Sometimes I wonder why you even love me
And why you ever chose to call me child
Then I remember
It's by your sacrifice
I can say that
I am yours and you are mine

It doesn't take much
For me to shed a tear
And you have done so many things
To make me cry
Whenever I think
Of all that I've done wrong
And everything that you have done
To make it right

Let's watch and listen to it one more time:

I too often wonder He puts up with me when I break HIs heart over and over. But Praise Him He does.

Liza you are fine this is a part of the journey it keeps us humble and ever connected. If all went well we would feel to independent.
Love One Woman

Liza - that song is amazing! We love it here.

Praying against fear, worry and anxiety for you!

Fear and faith do not exist together. Close your eyes and look for Him - He is there - never leaves you nor forsakes you. Close your eyes and breath in His truths - open your eyes to His word when these moments take you over - speak it out loud. Let His truths set you free!

He has already blessed you and all of us with everything we need to conquer fear and worry. You are sealed by the power of His Holy Spirit. NOthing can take His love away - NOTHING!

Blessings,
Jill
