LORD, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU!
I’m reflecting on our relationship with God whom we love because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). The Psalms and contemporary Christian music are loaded with love songs to God. And some of them, like “You” by Plus One, I can play repeatedly. Its first stanza and refrain go thus:
Me, it was always all about me
My job, my plans, my time was all I cared about
Myself, I only needed myself to get me through my life
But suddenly I found – that
I want, I need, I crave, I breathe
I feel, I hope, I dream, I know
I trust, I lo-oo-ve You

Although God is incredibly high and lofty, though He dwells in unapproachable light, He takes special interest in us His handiwork – finite, weak beings dwelling in vessels of clay. Through His love, we can rise above the limitations of our nature and share His glory.
But it all begins with this kindling of affection in our hearts for Him when we realize how far He has stooped down to raise us up and how much He has paid to redeem us from the corruption of our sinful nature. Then our focus is no longer ourselves, but Him. And the more we gaze in wonder at the beauty of His holiness, the more we are transformed to reflect the same (2 Corinthians 3:18) and we can change lives and situations around us.

You, LORD, it’s all about You!
Kindly share with me something from any song that has blessed your life.
