Power in a song...

Today while at work, I was listening to my ipod... trying to drown out the noise around me and the frustrations in my spirit and then this song came on and just... arrested me. I stopped and listened and then played it over and over. Granted, this is a song I've had on my ipod for quite awhile and yet... today it just was so... powerful to me. Even now I would like to type it out for you but can't. Take a listen... The song is titled, "Over My Head" by Starfield...

The most powerful part to me is toward the end when he sings:
Ruined for anything other than Your love
I'm desperate to know You, Lord
Desperate for what's in store
Finding my hope in only You, in only You
Take me beyond this door
Lead me to something more
Open my heart up for more of You, more of You

As I listened at work and was overcome by the power of God's love and the power of this song. I was struck by this last part... to be ruined for anything other than Your love (to want nothing BUT His love)... I'm desperate to know You, Lord, desperate for what's in store. Finding my hope in only You, in only You. Take me beyond this door... lead me to something more. Open my heart up for more of You. 

I find myself praying that... to be desperate to know Him more... to be desperate for what HE has for me... desperate for HIM. To find my hope in Him alone. Take me beyond this point in my life spiritually. While walking through a new door physically in terms of a job is important to me... walking through the door to something more in the spiritual realm... more of HIM... just overwhelms me.. it's over my head. Open my heart up for more of You Lord. I want to be lost in your presence Lord.... like I am in this moment and yet to go deeper still. 

Open my heart to see Your beauty around me. Open my heart to experience more of Your friendship... to experience more of YOU.

Hmmm. That should be my theme song, I think. I wish I could focus more on what God wants for me and less on what I want for myself.
