"Everything" part 2

Yesterday I linked up for the regular Saturday Then Sings My Soul.  I posted a video that I happened to stumble onto yesterday morning but I didn't have time to write a post and explain why I chose it.   

I ended the post briefly with this question  "Who is your everything?


 Here is the video again along with my thoughts followed by the lyrics. 



The video took my breath away.  If  your a regular reader of my blog you know that I love horses.  So seeing this I could appreciate the beauty.  But as I thought about it and thought about the words of the song I began to wonder why someone would put this song with this video. 

I stopped and thought about My Everything and the words of ths song.  Your all I want. Your all I need.  Your are the light thats leading me to the place where I find peace. You are the strength that keeps me walking. You are the hope that keeps me trusting.  And as I thought of the question I know that I want my strength and my hope and my peace to come for Jesus.  I want my heavenly Father through his son to give me strength.  And I want to put my trust in Him.

But I began to wonder about someone, anyone that might not have that Peace.  That might be putting thier hope and trust into a relationship like the one shown in the above video. 

You see I can understand it because that is what it is like.   I have had that kind of relationship with a horse.  And I can tell you that without meaning to that yes, that relationship took precident over my relationship with God.   

One of God's commandents is ...Thou shall have no other God's before me

And, I know how easy it is to let something, or someone come before God. 
Is there something or someone today that if you were to think about it might be Your Everything?  Or can you say He is my Everything. 

Below are the lyrics and the original video.   

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That's leading me
To the place where I find peace again.
You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose...you're everything.
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
Cause you're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything,everything
You're all I want your all I need
You're everything, everything.
You're all I want you're all I need.
You're everything, everything
You're all I want you're all I need, you're everything, everything.
And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Here's the video. 



Each time we show this video in chapel we have boys that finally realize that there are many things that are seperating them from the relationship with God that they crave.  And each time they leave the service with these answers . . . Your all I want. Your all I need. Your are the light thats leading me to the place where I find peace. You are the strength that keeps me walking. You are the hope that keeps me trusting. I know that I want my strength and my hope and my peace to come for Jesus. I want my heavenly Father through his son to give me strength. And I want to put my trust in Him.
