For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 NIV)
The other day I came across an old CD I hadn’t listened to in years. It was a sunny day and I was driving along to the gym. I couldn’t wait to roll the windows down, pop in the CD, and do my best karaoke rendition of SWV!
Not only was I looking forward to singing along, but I was looking forward to singing from the heart. You know the kind of singing you do when the words of the song sound like you wrote them yourself? The kind of singing where you can insert your name and the name of the one you love (or used to love) into the words of the song and remember when….yep, that’s just what I was expecting.
That’s just what happened at first. I sang my heart out during the first two tracks. I was gearing up to belt out track three, the infamous “Weak,” and The Holy Spirit showed up. All of a sudden the words of the song took on a whole new meaning:
I get so weak in the knees I can hardly speak.
I lose all control and something takes over me.
In a daze and it’s so amazing, it’s not a phase.
I want you to stay with me, by my side.
I swallow my pride; your love is so sweet.
It knocks me right off of my feet.
I can’t explain why your loving makes me weak.
Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with God’s grace and goodness that I get weak! Sometimes I feel like I am in a daze when I am surrounded by His presence and yearn to have Him with me always! Sometimes I have to swallow my pride and do what it is that He has called me to do because He loves me so much! The chorus to the song sums it up; sometimes I can’t explain why the love of God makes me weak!
When I arrived at the gym, I sat in my car just thanking God for loving me and for allowing me to experience His love on a level that is so amazing.
Thank You for Your unconditional and unfailing love. Thank You for Your constant reminders of Your love for me and that Your love surrounds me everyday. I pray that I will be able to live a life that is worthy of the way You love me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
Ladies, today I EMPOWER you to get weak from the power of God’s love. Let the Holy Spirit overcome you till you are falling on your knees and thanking Him for the love He showers upon you!
Describe a time when the Holy Spirit overcame you and led you into sweet, divine worship.
