I haven't participated in Then Sings My Soul Saturdays with Amy for quite some time.
Visit her blog to hear other songs that have meaning.
Or join in if you have a song you want to share.
Sometimes I get really overwhelmed with just His Name.
Have you ever just said the Name Jesus over and over again?
Just something about it.
So much power and yet gentleness in one breath.
What was it like for the angel Gabriel who told Mary what she would name her baby?
Were his eyes filled with tears when he said "you shall call his name Jesus"?
When I gave birth to my firstborn, I remember the doctor asking me her name.
Alyssa, I proudly answered with lots of tears.
And you never forget when the nurse hands you your little one and you hold her for the first time.
And then the incoming pour of company wanting to take a look at her.
But Mary was holding Jesus.
Did Joseph understand Who his young bride was holding in her arms?
Was he overwhelmed when Mary said His name is Jesus.
No doctors or nurses making a big deal about His entrance.
No anxious family and friends in the waiting room.
How was it for Mary to hold Him in her arms?
Against her chest?
Counting His toes and fingers?
Did she know as she held Him that He was the One sent to hold her?
To hold her against His Holy chest and hear her heart beat.
Did she know He was sent to save her?
She held the Savior.
The One they would give back to His Father after only 33 years and yet never let go of Him.
Your Name not only brings me to tears, it has the power to bring me to my knees.
I am nothing without You.
You are the only perfect in Me.
I need You.
This song brought me to tears in my driveway the other day.
Watching Shalana walk this journey in complete faith is mind blowing to me and to know that if she didn't have Jesus, there is no way she would be coping.
He is what this life is about.
When life is good.
When life is tough.
When there is health and when there is sickness.
Our sweet Savior who knows we need Him, but sits back and waits for us to ask Him.
If you don't know Him...oh sister, you have no idea Who you are missing out on.
He is amazing and like no other.
