Do you remember the post A Tune For A Song? If I must confess, it wasn’t a post I had planned to write, but as I look back, I see God’s leading hand steering me to do the things that align me with His blessings.
Pondering on the song, I was half expecting anyone to come back to me saying they had a tune, but in the wait, the Lord put in my heart the name of someone I follow here on WordPress. Sue Love. I had seen and listened to original songs the Lord had given her which she shares on her posts, so I understood why He would send me to her. Now here is one thing: I did not know much about her apart from the things she has shared about herself on her blog, but one thing I was certain of is her desire to follow only the leading of God. It’s funny the things you read about people that stick with you. I remember reading a comment she made on an award she got tagged on, and she said she’ll ask the Lord if she should participate. That was a long time ago, but that one thing remained with me. So I asked for her help if the Lord permitted her . . . and she responded.
This post is a testimony that God is not limited by time or distance. It is also a testimony that God is interested even in the smallest details of our lives, like a song, and the words we sing. It is a testimony that we can truly unite as the Body of Christ and love and serve together, unconditionally. It is a testimony that nothing can ever separate us from the love of God in Christ, and every day, He wants to shower that love on us as we choose to love one another, that we can be God’s answer to the prayers of others.
Working on this song with Sue has shown me that there is a deeper level to plunge into with God, and no matter where you are in Him, there’s much more, in fact, we have barely scratched the surface. Working with her has also directed my focus on the Lord, making sure that I’m always led by Him and not by my flesh, seeking to please only Him and no one else, for the glory of His holy name. She has reminded me to stay sensitive to His Spirit which is the inner witness as He leads us to do what will please Him.
I am forever grateful for this experience, for, in it, God has blessed me, not only with a tune, but better words to express what is truly in my heart, and a dear friend in Him, too.
It’s All You

You are the reason I want to dance.
You are the reason I want to sing.
You are the reason, expressing myself,
I serve You in all the ways You lead me.
You are the reason my heart gives You praise.
You are the reason that I am alive.
I bring out Your best moves
Just so I do embrace You;
Sing out loud as You lead just to please You.
Let myself follow You. I don’t care who watches me.
All I want to do is to make you smile.
Let every fibre of me bring You praise.
Your love has lifted my feet to dance.
Your faithfulness leaves me singing for joy.
You, Jesus, are the reason, it’s all You.
Your grace gives me life.
To God alone be all the glory!
