I usually do not put songs on my blogs. I figure that people have too many different tastes & I would hate to make someone click away from mine because the music bugged them too much to even find the mute button. Reminds me of the times I have been shopping & just totally hated the music in the clothing shop & couldn't concentrate on my quest for the perfect pair of jeans!
BUT this song hit me in such a sweet & deep way when I heard it on one of my student's blogs that I sat there & let it play about 5 times through before going to bed last night! It expresses my heart so beautifully.
The singer is Julie Meyer & I know nothing about her or her church or beliefs but she is singing my song here. My history of church and ministry was largely based on what we could DO for others and for God. So I DID a lot of good for a lot of years and I enjoyed it most of the time because I love people. But this push to DO pushed into my time to just BE. To be with God. To be by myself. To be with my thoughts.
Until the day that my God let me know that He treasures my BEING way more than all my wonderful DOINGS. Who knew? So now, I am FREE from all the "shoulds" that ruled my life as a minster's wife and a Christian. This song is about worship. Worship that is not tied to any action at all. Just loving God. Just breaking open my "alabaster box", my heart & emotions, and pouring them liberally on His feet. That worship can look totally different to different people, and it must.
