I have a special place in my heart for people who write great songs. They have a gift that blesses me. I am able to sing a song they’ve written from their heart to God and I can “own” that song as well and sing it to the Lord. It takes talent and/or giftedness to write that kind of song. I’ve written songs before that I thought were really good at the time, but I think they were really meant for just me. I also think that sometimes the exercise of writing the song (the discipline of it) may just be the point. I look forward to singing some of my favorite songs in heaven or just some of the songs written by David, Moses among others. John records a song that was sang as a victory over the evil one. Check this out….“Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the nations. 4 Who will not fear you, Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.” (Revelation 15:3b-4 NIV)
Our God is Greater Our God is Stronger God You are Higher than any other Our God is Healer Awesome In Power Our God (Songwriters: JESSE REEVES, CHRIS TOMLIN, MATT REDMAN, JONAS MYRIN)
Live performance of this song at Passion 2013 here.
There are songs that stir my heart like nothing that is written. I believe that we will worship using songs like this in heaven. When I come to terms with what God has done and is still doing in my life – I want to sing a song that blesses Him and expresses my love and appreciation for Him.
Sing out and sing on!!Pressing On! Dwayne
