Arms wide open

                                                So I'll stand
                            With arms high and heart abandoned
                                   In awe of the One who gave it all

                                            So I'll stand
                             My soul Lord to You surrendered
                                            All I am is Yours
                                                                         ~ Hillsong "Stand" 

There is so much in life that tries to steal us away from Jesus.  

If we would live our lives worshiping our King with arms wide open, then there is
nothing else that we can hold onto besides Him.
Praying that the Lord will continue to rip my idols from my hands. 


  1. AMEN! AMEN!!
    Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
    Look full in His wonderful face,
    And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
    In the light of His glory and grace.

  2. Amen Melissa :) Praying the very same prayer..

  3. Sometimes I could swear that your blog posts are written just for me. It's as if you know what's secretly going on and you are purposefully targetting these at me... haha... you must be in cahoots with God. =) In a Holy Spirit kind of a way. Love you!

  4. This is my all time favorite Hillsong track! Thanks for the reminder as to why.
