A Song

I came across Jimmy Needham a few months back, probably in February or March...I don't remember exactly. I loved his voice and the song "Forgiven and Loved" really hit home for me. I liked the song so much that I downloaded his entire latest album from iTunes. While I was working out on Monday the song "Hurricane" came on my iPod (I always have it on shuffle because I can't stand knowing what's coming next. That's why I like the radio so much). Anyway, I've heard the song before, but this was the first time I had really listened to the words. I found them very fitting for my current situation, and I am trying to make this song my prayer during this transition time.

Lyrics by Jimmy Needham

I have built a city here
Half with pride and half with fear
Just wanted a safer place to hide
I don’t want to be safe tonight

I need You like a hurricane
Thunder crashing, wind and rain
To tear my walls down
I’m only Yours now
I need you like a burning flame
A wild fire untamed
To burn these walls down
I’m only Yours now
I’m only Yours now

I am Yours and
You are mine
You know far better than I
And if destruction’s what I need
Then I’ll receive it Lord from Thee
Yes, I’ll receive it Lord from Thee

And it’s Your eye in the storm
Watching over me
And it’s Your eye in the storm
Wanting only good for me

And if You are the war
Let me be the casualty
‘Til I’m Yours alone
I am only Yours
I am Yours alone, Lord

I'm not great at adding videos to my blog, so just go here to listen to the song.

Anyway, just some things I'm thinking about during the move.

Love to you all,
