By Ramone - September 26, 2007
I was at a prayer meeting last Wednesday night and since the foreigners outnumbered the Japanese three to two, the two Japanese wanted to sing the worship songs in English (they asked a few questions about some words, so it was also kind of educational for them).
The first song we sang was "You are My King (Amazing Love)".
I'm forgiven because You were forsakenI was there at the prayer meeting because the Lord had led me to share a prayer burden with them, and to be honest I was more thinking about that than I was worshiping. But during the song I just got knocked over with God's love! His love is so big, bigger than the burden He'd given me to pray for! I wrote,
I'm accepted, You were condemned
I'm alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again
Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it's true
And it's my joy to honor You
In all I do, I honor You
You are my King, Jesus, You are my King
"Your love is so big, so awesome, so powerful, so incredible! It knocks me off my feet and I bow!"All I could do was just bow before Him in worship of His awesomeness. After that we sang, "The Power of Your Love". The verses were a little difficult for the Japanese because they essentially formed a very long run-on sentence. It was good for me because often we just sing things and don't really ponder the meaning. When you ponder the meaning and take it apart, it gets more of a chance to sink into your heart and become truly personal.
Lord, I come to You
let my heart be changed & renewed flowing from the grace that I've found in You
Lord, I've come to know (that) the weaknesses I see in me
will be stripped away by the power of Your love
