In Your Arms

07 Apr

As most of you who read my blog may have caught on with, I like to do random searches for music that reaches my soul.  Nearly every time I go searching, God gives me something that reaches me in a unique way.  This discovery is “In Your Arms” by Meredith Andrews.  The video I found is missing a line somewhere, but it is the best I could get.

I’m turning the world off
Embracing the silence
Walking away from all the voices
That are Screaming in my ear

I’ve been too caught up
I’ve been so stressed out
All of the noise replaced the whisper
That used to be so clear

So I close every door
Put my face back on the floor

And I’m in Your arms
Where I belong
There’s no other place for me
Than right where You are
Some things just don’t change
When I call Your name
You never hesitate to wrap me in endless grace
When I’m in Your arms

I’m letting my fears go
Giving You control
For You are the one who holds me closer
In my soul’s darkest night

Everything I see
Is so temporary
So help me to run the race before me
With eternity in sight

Now I close every door
Put my face back on the floor

To sit at Your feet
At Your table of mercy
To gaze on Your beauty, my Lord
To drink from Your well
And be changed by Your glory
How could I ask for more
Jesus, how could I ask for more

This is the prayer that I need to say many times over and over again.  Many times I find myself needing that space to turn everything off and just get away from it all.  This is not always because things are bad or I am not happy where I am.  I need such space to keep myself steady and focused on what is most important. 

Lately with the many thing going on around me and in me, more than ever it is needed to just run to the arms of Jesus.  Like the song, there is no better place to be.  Think about it.  Jesus is always there, even when we don’t believe that He is.  Yell at Him even, scream at Him, He will be there.  Cry, laugh, get frustrated, come with joy…He will always hold you in His arms.
