20 Days Of Worship Through Song | Day 2 - The Musings of Mum

When I came up with the list of the songs I’m sharing with you this month, I didn’t place them in any particular order, with the exception of day 1. It was the song that inspired this series after all. Also, had no intention of keeping a ‘theme’ within the songs, however the more I look at the list, the more I see the Lord had a theme in mind.

Today’s song, I Belong To You by Jesus Culture is an almost perfect follow up to yesterday post. I love how the Lord works.

You can be the One that steals my heart
With just a simple thought of who You are
Let Your light shine in the darkest parts
Let Your love fill the world

In his gospel, John tells us exactly who He is:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:1-5

Knowing what the Word of God says about who Christ is, and that He would call us His own is intensely humbling.

I’ll admit that though I always liked this song, it didn’t speak to me until recently. I added it to this list just a couple of weeks ago. For the last couple of months, we’ve had a good friend join us for Wednesday night bible study. This gentleman has been part of our lives for some time, at first serving with us in children’s ministry, later as a friend, and now as family. That night as he stood next to me on that pew his voice filled the air. Arms raised and in complete surrender, he cried out Forever, I belong to You”.

We sometimes sing the songs we know without a whole lot of thought, we know the lyrics, but how often do we really think about them?  Suddenly I remembered who this song was for, and the words left my lips. Have you ever had that happen? My lips would not move, I just stood there and worshipped, unable to speak.

I thought of Psalm 63.

You, God, are my God,

    earnestly I seek you;

I thirst for you,

    my whole being longs for you,

in a dry and parched land

    where there is no water. 

I have seen you in the sanctuary

    and beheld your power and your glory.

Because your love is better than life,

    my lips will glorify you.

I will praise you as long as I live,

    and in your name I will lift up my hands.

I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;

    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

My prayer today, is to be present during worship. I don’t want to miss an opportunity to praise him with my lips, with my hands, with my everything. His breath is life on these dry bones of mine.

Your breath is life, Your word is truth

  1. So true that it’s easy to go through the motions at times and sing songs without really thinking about it, but those moments when we do truly engage and remember who we’re singing to are amazing.

    They are. I don’t want to take even a second for granted, because I know He is paying attention to me all the time.


  3. Tatiana, I LOVE this series! Music is truly a heart language for me – speaks to me in so many way 🙂 Besides worship, it’s also one of the best ways I connect to my kids. I learn so much about them through their choices in music…
    Love your blog, and looking forward to following this series…
    Also looking forward to meeting you at 2:1!

      Thank you Pat! Music is huge in our home, it’s in everything we do. It’s how I communicated with my parents and I see how that’s translated to how I communicate with my kids also. Looking forward to meeting you too ?
