The song, My Jesus by Leeland, was resonating in my spirit all morning today. Funny, I don’t recall hearing the song lately, but nevertheless, there it was… on my heart, where the Holy Spirit brought it. I am so thankful that I know this song and can recall some of its beautiful lyrics. And with that thought, it also made me thankful that I know so many other amazing songs about our Loving Lord. I’m in pure joy and thankfulness today for the love of Christ that surrounds me and awakes me each morning. Through friends, revelations, teachings, meditation, prayer, missions, ministry, fellowship, but most importantly, the Word of God and God Himself. I kept repeating this verse over and over in my mind…
And I’m lost in Your love and Your mercy.
Lord, Your beauty is so overwhelming.
I’m thankful for Your truth.
I’m so in love with You.
My Jesus, My Jesus.
When I got to work, I turned on my computer, started working and listened to the song on repeat for maybe an hour or so. Each time the song played, I gradually found myself cranking up the volume a notch, and sometimes I was holding back my tears of thanks and joy of God in my life. Good thing my computer screen faces windows. : )
I remember the first time I heard Leeland sing. It was at Lakewood Church, maybe about two years ago. Pastor Marcos Witt introduced him to sing Carried to the Table during the tithes and offerings. I have to tell you, Leeland’s voice completely blew me away! It was amazing to see the young man with his bright red hair pouring his voice and heart on stage. Such a beautiful song with a beautiful truth. Tears filled my eyes at the emotion that filled me. Marcos Witt had him play to introduce his sermon for that day about being carried to the table. The whole service was an experience I have not forgotten.
