"Forever Reign"

(by Kristian Stanfill) Forever Reign - Passion - Here for You (Deluxe Edition)

Forever Reign by Kristian Stanfill on Grooveshark

"You are good, You are good
When there's nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You're the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

Chorus:
Oh, I'm running to Your arms,
I'm running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In your presence I'm made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I'm letting go

Chorus

My heart will sing
No other name
Jesus, Jesus..."

Somehow, I had never heard today's song until I was listening to the playlist on Becky's blog yesterday. I then proceeded to listen to every version of it on Grooveshark. This song is so good. And so true. I hope it speaks to you today! ♥

"The faithful love of the LORD never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.
I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my inheritance;
therefore, I will hope in him!’
The LORD is good to those who depend on him,
to those who search for him.”
(Lamentations 3:22-25)

"But you, O LORD, reign forever;
Your throne endures to all generations."
(Lamentations 5:19, ESV)

"His government and its peace will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice
from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven's Armies
will make this happen!"
(Isaiah 9:7, NLT)

"Of all else I'm letting go"

goes hand in hand with the 4th chapter of James I blogged about yesterday

I absolutely LOVE this song! Dan plays it a lot at ACCESS on Sunday nights. You guys should come check out Access one time. Other than the long drive(Woodway Campus) I really think that y'all would love it! I do!

I hadn't heard this song until I started going to First Houston, it's one of my favorite songs now. In fact, I just posted part of the song on my facebook last night. Sooo good!
