Songs That Speak To Me: Lover of My Soul

I found myself singing this song over and over since I got out of bed this morning, so I took out the time to look at the lyrics and it shook me; the chorus, especially.

I’m sharing it with anyone who is plagued by the spirit of doubt and fear, and every other form of brokenness. Do you ever feel like you’ll never be good enough? ย Do you think your flaws and weaknesses are too great that you hide from life itself?

There’s someone who can fill up every void. He is more than enough. Try Him and see.

Just try JESUS.

Lover of My Soul – Jonathan McReynolds

[Verse 1]
Their human bones are as fragile as mine
I have my flaws, but they have the same kind
I was ashamed ’cause I couldn’t see
That grace says that they’re in the same boat as me

[Chorus 1]
But what I lack
You are full of
And where I’m broken
You are whole
And what I’m doubting
You are sure of
So I’ll trust the Lover
Lover of my soul

[Verse 2]
I’m not afraid of the arrows by day
Nor the darkness that comes when the sun rolls away
Lord, You know that my strength never lasts
But You make up for every weakness I have

[Chorus 1]
And what I lack
You are full of
And where I’m broken
You are whole
And what I’m doubting
You are sure of
I’ll trust the Lover
Lover of my soul

[Chorus 2]
What I confess
You will cover
And what I let go
You’ll control
Lord, my hope is
In no other
I’ll trust the Lover
Lover of my soul

        1. Wow. That’s really amazing. You should share the songs and maybe someone will be inspired to write music to them. Then give a few to your son and see what he comes up with. I love music so much, I play all the musical instruments so well and make great compositions . . . but only in my head ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

          1. I’ve posted several earlier in my blog. My son wrote a 16 piece ensemble to one of my poems and performed it at the university. That was my first “publised” piece. Our genre’s are too different.
            Don’t we all perform well in our heads?
