You are true....Even in my wandering

The worship set at church yesterday was really good.  Music is like words spoken directly to the soul.  The songs weren't new to me--we sing them often actually.  Today, in light of what I was going through last week at this time (see previous post), the words to Hillsong's "Forever Reign" really spoke to me. 

You are good, You are good
When there's nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace

When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You're the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

Oh, I’m running to Your arms,

I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

Lately I have seen no "good" in me.  I feel like darkness has surrounded me more than light, and "wandering" is a good way to describe how I feel most days.  I like the contrasts in the song and the "otherness" of God is comforting.

I was always a daddy's girl.  When I was most upset, I would bury into my dad's side and cry.  Today, as I sang the chorus "Oh, I'm running to Your arms" I felt like that little girl being comforted by her daddy.  Its been a while since I've felt that way toward God.
