knowing You is everything-

I am sure all of heaven's heard me cry
As I tell You all the reasons why
This life is just too hard

But day by day
Without fail
I'm finding everything I need
And everything that You are
To me

 Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never want to leave
I want to stay in Your warm embrace
Oh basking in the glory shining from Your face
And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart
I realize it's true
That You are so marvelous God
And I am so in love with You

Now how could I after knowing One so great
Respond to You in any way
That's less than all I have to give
But by Your grace I want to love You not with what
I say
But everyday
In a way that my life is lived

Wrapped in Your mercy I want to live and never leave
I am held by how humble
Yet overwhelmed by Your majesty
Captured by grace and now I'm finding
I am free
You are marvelous God
And knowing You is everything

-Every Time I Breathe-

So my favorite line is this song is 'By Your grace, I want to love You, not with what I say, but everyday in a way that my life is lived." I know I've said it before, but that's my biggest prayer and biggest fear. Saying I believe one thing... and totally contradicting what I say with the way I live. I mean really, if I do that than I'm no different than someone who doesn't even know Christ. I can just talk smoother and get more amens. That's so... wrong. I don't know... guess I'm doing some self evaluation right now and really been thinking about this. Definitely not a bad thing to do every once in a while. We should all ask ourselves that more often though... do my words & actions line up with each other? ... be fearful of mediocrity. 

yep, there you have it again... Hannah's random thoughts. :) So I have to wonder how much of what I say really makes sense... like, in my mind it just totally does because I know what conclusion I'm coming to, but when I actually say it out loud... I'm not so sure it does to everyone else. I'm convinced that most people just nod and smile and pretend to get what I'm saying... because let's face it, my mind is constantly going in 179 different directions, and than you take allll that and try to get one logical statement out of it? It's harder than you'd think.... I usually end up with something along the lines of 'if you have 10 ice cubes and 11 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof? Purple, because aliens don't wear hats.' Ooooh yeah, confusing right? No it's not really that bad... but almost. Haha, anyways... hope you all have an amazing and blessed week. 


  1. I got what you were saying and I agree and liked it! I totally know what you mean -- it's so easy to say the right stuff, but living that out is so much different.

  2. Haha, thank you! But yes... it totally is.


Hey, leave me a comment! They make me happy. :)

God bless...
