You are good you are good

Forever Reign by Hillsong. Not a new song, but one I listen to frequently these days.



I call it the 'you are good you are good' song. I listen to this song while I cook. I listen to it at work. I listen to it at night. I listen to it face down on my porch floor while salty tears stream from my eyes. Because the words are the truth that my heart needs to hear: God is good. God is peace. God is light. God is hope. He's the reason my heart sings. I'm running to His arms...and it's in His presence that I'm made whole. He is God He is God of all else I'm letting go. 


Letting go is hard to do. Letting go of plans and hopes and dreams and expectations. Letting go of control is freeing...yet my flesh resists the letting go. It fights the letting go process as I daily surrender to the only One who is good.

That's why I listen. I hope you will too.

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

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

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

You are more
You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord
You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here
You are here
In Your presence I'm made whole
You are God
You are God
Of all else I'm letting go

Hallelujah forever
All the glory forever
All the praise to You

My heart will sing
No other name
Jesus Jesus
