Inside Out

A thousand times I've failed
Still Your mercy remains
Should I stumble again
Still I'm caught in your grace
Your light will shine when all else fades
Your glory goes beyond all fame

Your will above all else
 My purpose remains
The art of losing myself
in bringing You praise
Your light will shine when all else fades
Your glory goes beyond all fame

In my heart and my soul
I give you control
Consume me from the inside out, Lord
Let justice and praise
become my embrace
To love you from the inside out

Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Neverending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries

These lyrics have been rolling around inside of me for days now.
Probably about a week. I'm not really sure why.
My only conclusion is that these words really are the cry of my heart.

I want to lose myself in my love for God and his love for me.
I want his love to consume my thoughts, my words, my actions...
how I respond to life, circumstances and humanity
I want everything I do to be an inward and outward act of praise.
I am so completely in love with Jesus.

My heart is so moved by his goodness in my life,
the garbage He has pulled me out of
and it inspires me to love others with His kind of love.

lyrics by// Hillsong United

This is probably one of my favorite songs. Its a beautiful reminder that the Lord changes us from the inside out, that his love never fails and although we may be weak he is strong.
