Everything

I first heard this song three years ago at our ladies' retreat.

For the last three years, the theme has revolved around "Captivating" which you will find referenced at the top of my left sidebar.

It is rare that I can listen to this song without crying.

I also love to listen to it pretty loudly in the car. It makes me feel better about my singing and also lends to the powerfulness of the song.

I have even introduced it to my kids and they love it too.

Last week, I also introduced it to the ladies' in our new bible study, "Esther- It's Tough Being A Woman.". I was a little nervous about that one, but I was told it went over well. But that is another story.

I put the lyrics below and changed some of the capitalization to make sure it indicates what it means to me. I know the song has been used for other things, but this is how I know it.

It is song #28 on my play list if you want to hear it as you read along. I encourage you to turn up and enjoy! It is pretty powerful if you let be.

I also have a link to YouTube if you need that as well.

After my last semi-rant post, I guess I just needed to reassure myself (and maybe anyone else too) that I really do know and understand what is most important.

Enjoy!

Everything
by Lifehouse

Find me here
Speak to me
I want to feel You
I need to hear You

You are the light
That's leading me
To the place
Where I find peace
Again.

You are the strength,
that keeps me walking.
You are the hope,
that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose...You're everything.

How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms,
and You give me rest.
You hold me in your hands,
You won't let me fall.
You steal my heart,
and You take my breath away.
Would You take me in?
Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

And how can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause You're all I want,
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything.
You're all I want
You're all I need.
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need,
You're everything, everything

And how can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this

Would You tell me how could it be any better than this

Everything
