Filling Life's Potholes with God's Perfection

Perfection Road offers encouragement to those longing to live like Jesus,
so they may confidently travel the road toward God's perfect love.

Praise the Lord!

I know it’s not Tuesday, but …

I came across a song as I walked at the farm today that I had never heard before. I stopped in my tracks when I focused on the words. In a few short minutes David Crowder completely described my freedom journey. Don’t jump ahead and listen to the song until you read the lyrics that I wished I had written. (By the way, the You in the first stanza is God.) I have a feeling some of you can relate to this. Thanks for allowing me an extra post this week. Sometimes, I feel the Spirit nudging me extra hard to share!

Praise the Lord

I used to shake You like an 8-ball.
I used to shoot You like a gun.
I used to hold You like a hammer.
Try to nail down everyone.
I used to keep You in a steeple.
Used to bind You in a Book.
I used to take You like prescription
without knowing what I took.

But now, I just don’t buy it anymore.
No, I’ve tried and I’ve tried to know everything for sure,
but I find I know less as I come to know You more.
You’re not who I thought You were,
Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

Your love’s an ocean, not a river;
A symphony, not just a song.
I don’t think everybody’s right.
I think we often get it wrong.
I think that when we get to Heaven
we’re gonna laugh when we can see
how hard we try to make it
and how easy it should be.

And so, I just don’t buy it anymore.
No, I’ve tried and I’ve tried to know everything for sure,
but I find I know less as I come to know You more.
You’re not who I thought You were,
Praise the Lord!

Providence is endless,
mercy is a mystery,
and fear is no good reason
to believe in anything.

So, I just don’t buy it anymore.
No, I’ve tried and I’ve tried to know everything for sure,
but I find I know less as I come to know You more.
You’re not who I thought You were,
Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

Happy Thursday!

P.S.¬†Business demands, aged parents, setbacks, and a loved one’s surgery has delayed¬†Freedom for the Good Little Church Girl‘s birth. Satan is on the run, and I feel intense “new book labor pains” – so it won’t be long now. Praise the Lord!

    Those lyrics are beautiful! I especially loved the metaphor that He is a symphony not just a song:) Thank you for sharing!! Glad to have a new tune to run with this morning!
