Being Devinely Blessed

On church this past Sunday we sang “Jesus Paid it all”.  Such a beautiful song with beautiful lyrics.  I’m overwhelmed at the notion in this song that I am not just blessed by God through everything and everyone around me, but I am divinely blessed with the very presence of God.

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.

And now complete in Him,
My robe, His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.

    To me it’s amazing how the music we sing at church can speak to your heart sometimes more than the message. The message is a moment for learning, then you spend this time contemplating and trying to figure out how to apply it to your life but it’s the music that’s just so pure and meant as praise for Him and I often find myself emotional during praise because it feels good to say thank you to him in that way.
