Waiting here for you - listen now!

A friend texted me today the name of a song that was released in March on the Passion 2011 Album: Here For You. The song is called Waiting Here For You. It was written by Chris Tomlin and is sung by Christy Nockels (who was part of Watermark and sings Glorybaby which ministered to me powerfully after my first miscarriage).

What a sacrifice of praise to tell the Lord in the midst of our waiting that we adore Him. That we're waiting here for Him. On our hardest of days, when it takes everything in us, we can lift our hands in praise...as a prayer of surrender to God acknowledging that we are waiting for Him. Yes we long for our heart's desire...be it a baby, a job, a spouse, healing, finances, or other. But ultimately friends, ultimately, we are waiting for God.

As I'm repeatedly watching this I'm praying for and thinking of my friends waiting: Jenn, TCIE, Jelly Belly, Becky, Patiently Waiting, Kim, Perfect Power, Tea, Elizabeth, Amber, Tasha, Marissa, Sarah, and so many more.

This is a live video from Passion. It's 6 minutes. Watch it in full screen mode, turn it up and make sure your hands are free so you can lift them high in praise....





Waiting Here For You
If faith can move the mountains
Let the mountains move
We come with expectation
Waiting here for you, I’m waiting here for you

You’re the Lord of all creation
And still you know my heart
The Author of Salvation
You’ve loved us from the start

CHORUS
Waiting here for You
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Alleluia

You are everything You’ve promised
Your faithfulness is true
And we're desperate for Your presence
All we need is You

CHORUS

Singing Alleluia
Alleluia, singing alleluia, alleluia

CHORUS

Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
We're singing Alleluia

I'm singing Alleluia
Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Alleluia
Singing Alleluia
