We Belong to You

Lately, I have been trying not to post others words, however, today I changed my mind!

I was longing to enter into worship and to know my God in a deeper way. The first thought I had was to go and listen to music at Spirit and Song. In my journey of listening to various worship songs, I found this song "We Belong to You" by Trevor Thompson.

I must say this song pours forth my heart desire: That as a community of people who follow Christ we will awake each day saying, "Lord God, Father in Heaven, we/I belong to you." These words are going into my journal.

I have attached the link please do listen and perhaps as I did you will join in and sing letting these words become your own.

We Belong to You

We belong to you, O Lord of our longing,
We belong to you.
In our daily living, dying and rising
We belong to you.

1. In the waters of your mercy,
When the old becomes the new,
Souls united in the myst'ry:
We belong to you.

2. Filled with gifts and filled with goodness,
Spirit breathing life into
All who seek to find their purpose:
We belong to you.

3. When we share the bread you’ve broken
With the many and the few,
We are blessed and we are broken;
We belong to you.

4. We are called to share your word, Lord,
In all we say and all we do.
As our journey moves us onward,
We belong to you.

Love to all

You write good word, but when you share words from others they are also good! I esp liked this line: "In the waters of your mercy,
When the old becomes the new,
Souls united in the myst'ry:
We belong to you."

His redemption is a mystery, isn't it? Why would he want to redeem us? Love. And the depth of that love is unfathomable and mysterious. Can't explain it, just glad we have it!

Good post.

Hey Warren thanks for the comment. I like that line also...when souls unite. The Christian journey is not about an individual journey but the journey we have together. Amen to the day we will understand fully.

To be reminded that we belong to Christ is sooo awesome! And we know what that means...nothing can ever separate us from His love...I am at deep peace right now and I will carry this as I go to work this weekend. Blessings to you sister.

Sometimes we find echoes of ourselves and our longings in the words of others. I think that's a good thing.

This song reminds me of Jesus telling Martha that Mary had chosen the better think...I downloaded this song on my laptop so I can listen some more.

For some of us, words are the greatest talent we have. We don't do as well with pictures or music. I think they are all important in the praise of God: music, pictures, words. I like your words.
