Song of the Week - #14 - "I Want To Find My Hope"
Recently, I've been reading Randy Alcorn’s wonderful book called Happiness. The premise is that God wants us to be overflowing with hope, joy, peace, and over the top happiness…that’s right, Happiness! Not because He’s going to give us everything we want or make our lives problem free, but because within Himself is the fountain of life. In our everyday lives, everything we need and want can be found in Him, at His throne.
The prayer of this song is that I may stop looking in so many other places for the things my heart searches for and find my fulfillment in Him. I love singing this song. The cry of it flows out with such a “yes” in my spirit. In fact, when I was writing it, the vamp spontaneously poured out of me…the simple cry, “I want more and more and more and more of You.”
Psalm 36:9 “For with you is the fountain of life,…”
Ps. 16:11 “You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
Ps. 73:26 “God is … my portion forever.”
Ps. 84:4,10 “Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. … Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”
Ps. 27:4 “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
Ps. 34:8 “Taste and see that the Lord is good...”
