You are I am

I recently heard this song for the first time. I adore the chorus! The song talks about our doubts, our struggles, and ultimately what Jesus has done to take that all away. It makes me LOVE JESUS so much more. Do you have a song that moves you like this one does me?

"You Are I Am" by Mercy Me (album: The Hurt and the Healer)
**********************************
I've been the one to shake with fear
And wonder if You're even here
I've been the one to doubt Your love
I've told myself You're not enough

I've been the one to try and say
I'll overcome by my own strength
I've been the one to fall apart
And to start to question who You are

You're the one who conquers giants
You're the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You're the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan's hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

I've been the one held down in chains
Beneath the weight of all my shame
I've been the one to believe
That where I am You cannot reach

You're the one who conquers giants
You're the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You're the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan's hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

The veil is torn
And now I live with the Spirit inside
The same one, the very same one
who brought the Son back to life

Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me

You're the one who conquers giants
You're the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You're the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan's hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am
*********************************

Thank you, Lord, that you are I Am.

Oh there are so many!!!! I'm currently loving Matt Hammit's album... The words and sentiments are so real for the trial we are facing. And, as you say focusing on how Jesus is walking with us through this makes me love Him so much more and yet realize one more time how inadequate my love is for the one who gave it all for me.

Hugs my friend,

Kat

Hi

I am in a very emotional state right now. I have deleted my blog “The Simple Life of Hope”. My father-in-law died nearly two weeks ago, and the following weekend, I found out that my father has leukemia and was told that he had 2 weeks to 3 months to live.

I would like to keep in touch with you, and I will probably even begin a new blog, eventually. I just wanted to let you know what’s going on with me.
