it's been forever, i know. oh, but there's this song, 'forever', i've fallen head over heels with it. it's about my Savior, your Savior, our Savior and what He did on the cross...and as you may know, yours truly is totally into poems, so with the perfect touch of spoken word in the video, i couldn't help but share this piece of beauty by Kari Jobe and Isaac Wimberley.

 the poem goes like this...

If there are words for Him, then I don't have them.
You see my brain has not yet reached the point
Where it could form a thought that could adequately
describe the greatness of my God
And my lungs have not yet developed the ability to,
release a breath with enough agility to
breathe out the greatness of His love
And my voice, you see my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits,
that's hard to even send the praise up
You see if there are words for Him,
I don't have them
My God, His grace is remarkable
Mercies are innumerable
Strength is impenetrable
He is honorable, accountable
Favorable, He's unsearchable yet knowable
Indefinable yet approachable
Indescribable yet personal
He is beyond comprehension
Further than imagination
Constant through generations
King of every nation
But if there are words for Him,
Then I don't have them.
You see, my words are few
In trying to capture the one true God,
Using my vocabulary would never do.
But I use words as an expression,
An expression of worship to a Savior
A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise
So I use words.
My heart extols the Lord, blesses His name forever.
He has won my heart, captured my mind
And has bound them both together.
He has defeated me in my rebellion,
Conquered me in my sin.
He has welcomed me into His presence
Completely invited me in.
He has made Himself the object of my sight,
Flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night.
But if there are words for Him,
Then I don't have them.
But what I do have is good news.
For my God knew that man-made words
Would never do, the words are just tools
That we use to point to the truth.
So He sent His son, Jesus Christ
As The Word, living proof.
He is the image of the invincible God,
The first born of all creation.
For by Him all things were created,
Giving nothingness formation.
And by His words He sustains
In the power of His name
For He is before all things
And over all things, He reigns.
Holy is His name
So praise Him for His life
The way he persevered in strife
The humble son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice
Praise Him for His death
That He willingly stood in our place,
That He lovingly endured the grave,
That He battled our enemy
And on the third day rose in victory.
He is everything that was promised
Praised as the risen King.
Lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us
And we will finally be united with our Savior
For eternity, eternity.
So it's not just words that I proclaim
For my words point to The Word
And The Word has a name.
Hope has a name
Joy has a name
Peace has a name
Love has a name
And that name is Jesus Christ
Praise His name FOREVER!

i hope you guys had a lovely easter, i sure did. our King is alive! hallelujah! :)
