Here’s a cover Grace and I did a few weeks ago during Open Mic at Baked Dessert Bar! We sang two songs, one of them being “What a Beautiful Name.” But although I’ve heard this song a hundred times at church and in the car, this song has been so close to my heart since last night.
Being obedient to God is not the easiest thing sometimes. Pastors preach it, we hear it, and grasp the importance of it. But when you’re in the grind of actually applying it in your own life while being tempted to give in to what your flesh and natural human desire wants, constantly surrendering can be such a battle. At least for me. For what I thought I “mastered” and learned the lesson from my last relationship, history repeated itself.
The past eight hours have been so painful. After being through a season of the above tug-of-war, I have felt so broken inside which I haven’t felt in such a long time. Seven years to be exact. I’ve found myself running back to God mentally saying, “It happened again, I know, and I’m sorry! I’m here! I need You!” One thing is for sure: I am so grateful for His mercy and grace. It truly is new every morning.
What a beautiful name, “Jesus,” really is. Sin was great, His love is greater. If you’re feeling broken inside, I seriously wish I could give you a hug right now. Remember that He is for you and never against you. Despite your trial and your struggle, you are so loved. You are His masterpiece. His prized possession. The apple of His eye. His Beloved. He wants nothing more than for you to come to Him- just as you are.
“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
