Hurricane

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the last week or so. It expresses my current relationship to God well; I need Him to help me seek Him; I need Him to help me submit joyfully (ooo, that little word that makes all the difference!); I need Him to help me stick it out in spite of myself, because He knows that I am the consummate wandering heart.

I highly recommend that you get on iTunes–or, if you’re a cheapskate like me, Youtube–and give it a listen.

“Hurricane” by Jimmy Needham

I have built a city here
Half with pride and half with fear
Just wanted a safer place to hide
I don’t want to be safe tonight

CHORUS
I need You like a hurricane
Thunder crashing, wind and rain

To tear my walls down

I’m only Yours now
I need you like a burning flame
A wild fire untamed
To burn these walls down
I’m only Yours now
I’m only Yours now

I am Yours and You are mine
You know far better than I
And if destruction’s what I need
Then I’ll receive it Lord from Thee
Yes, I’ll receive it Lord from Thee

(Chorus)

And it’s Your eye in the storm
Watching over me
And it’s Your eye in the storm
Wanting only good for me
And if You are the war
Let me be the casualty
‘Til I’m Yours alone
I am only Yours
I am Yours alone, Lord
