Jesus is My Story and My Song

I don't usually just post words to a song, but I heard this song earlier this week for the first time on a new CD and I just can't get it out of my head. I listen to it at least 5 times a day at work. Sometimes when the Lord wants us to share something, that's how he tells us. He just keeps bringing it back to my mind. It is "Befriended" by Matt Redman - it's not as powerful when not to music, but I pray that the Lord will minister to souls that are hurting, hungry and seeking.

Befriended.... befriended by the King above all Kings
Surrendered... surrendered to a friend above all friends.
Invited.... invited deep into this mystery.
Delighted... delighted by the wonders I have seen..

This will be my story....

This will be my song.
You'll always be my savior.
Jesus, You will always have my heart.

Astounded... astounded that Your gospel beckoned me.
Surrounded... surrounded but I've never been so free.
Determined... determined now to live this life for You.
You're so worthy.. my greatest gift would
be the least you're due.

This will be my story...

This will be my song.
You'll always be my Savior.
Jesus, You will always have my heart.

I've never heard that song...I'm gonna check to see if it's on You Tube. The words are beautiful!

Thank you for sharing it, Beth!

Dear Beth,

I've never heard these words in song either, but I love them and they do minister to the mind, heart and soul, just as you do dear one. I find coming here like a resting place for me too. Your posts fill me and comfort me as you and your posts are all about Him. You love Him so and that is refreshing to me.

I love you dear sister.

Peace, Love, Hugs & Prayers,
