Wednesday's Word: Marvelous Light

"Marvelous Light"-Charlie Hall

I once was fatherless,
a stranger with no hope;
Your kindness wakened me,
Awakened me, from my sleep

Your love it beckons deeply,
a call to come and die.
By grace now I will come
And take this life, take your life.

Sin has lost it's power,
death has lost it's sting.
From the grave you've risen

Into marvelous light I'm running,
Out of darkness, out of shame.
By the cross you are the truth,
You are the life, you are the way

My dead heart now is beating,
My deepest stains now clean.
Your breath fills up my lungs.
Now I'm free. now I'm free!

Lift my hands and spin around,
See the light that i have found.
Oh the marvelous light
Marvelous light

Lift my hands and spin
See the light within...

This song is not really new, but it is new to me! I heard it at eteens when we went to hear Robyn (eteens is fantastic!). I downloaded off itunes and have been listening to it on my ipod a lot! I would really encourage everyone to spend time during you day worshiping Jesus. It has been a crazy time in our lives with our house not selling, voting on going to two services, and trying to do our complicated taxes this year. So much of our battle is spiritual, and it begins with our thought life. I also have the Bible on cd (dramatized version) that I purchased a long time ago, and I am listening to the Bible throughout the day as well.
