One again, I’ve found a particular song going round my head for the last few day – This time it’s been more the words than the music that have been playing on my mind. The song itself is one which I’m sure many of you will know very well, Lord I Come To You (The Power of Your Love), however that in itself is why the song has been on my mind.
The very first words of this song are
Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
How many times have you been in church and sang a hymn/song without ever really thinking about the words that you’re sing, either because you’re on auto pilot because you’ve sung the hymn or song so often, or maybe just because your mind is elsewhere because you thinking about or worrying about something.
I guess that one question is why this line of this song has been stuck in my head, because I’ve been asking myself, “Am I really giving the whole of my heart to God to change and renew me?”
I too am guilty of singing hymns/songs without really thinking about the words I’m singing, so maybe we all need to be honest with ourselves and with God, and only sing words which we truly believe and agree with.
