What Else Matters, Really?

This song just started playing, and it hit me deep in my spirit. Does that ever happen to you? Music is so visceral, but some music is anointed. I believe this is one of the latter, because I hardly know this song, yet as it began to play I had to stop my work to listen. I didn’t even know the whole lyric, but somehow I knew this was the song of my Autumn of 2016. I searched online for the lyrics, but I didn’t really need to read them. I know the Holy Spirit was telling me, “This was you.”  Last November, I wrote briefly about what I was going through (LINK ), and my Aunt Barbara left me a very faith-filled comment that I could hardly receive at the time. The Holy Spirit brought her words back to me, as I was listening to this song.

“Sounds like God is preparing you for the next level of intimacy with Him. Hang in there and keep your heart on Him. What else matters really? You know, ‘Seek first….'”

A breakthrough did come—a milestone, as the song says—and I shared about that, too (LINK).   Now, today, the Lord has used this song to show me His hand, how He has been working right along, even in my unfaithfulness and unbelief.  I can look back at that spiritual chaos, because it is really in my past. Praise be to God.

So, I share this song with you today, for all of my Brothers and Sisters in the fight. Hold fast to Him. Everything may seem totally awful right now, but if you will just surrender and let God have His way, He will bring you through! Take Aunt Barbara’s words for yourself. Hang in there, keep your heart on Him, and seek first the Kingdom of God. What else matters, really?

“WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING (SOMETHING HEAVENLY)” by SANCTUS REAL

It’s time for healing, time to move on
It’s time to fix what’s been broken too long
Time to make right what has been wrong
It’s time to find my way to where I belong
There’s a wave that’s crashing over me
And all I can do is surrender

Whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there’s peace
It’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
But I’m giving in to something Heavenly

Time for a milestone, time to begin again
Re-evaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow Your will
Or just climbing aimlessly over these hills?
So show me what it is You want from me
I give everything, I surrender

To whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there’s peace
And though it’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
I’m giving in to something Heavenly, something Heavenly

Time to face up, clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I wanted to say for so many years
Time to release all my held back tears

Whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You’re up to something bigger than me
Larger than life, something Heavenly

Whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This is something bigger than me
Larger than life, something Heavenly, something Heavenly
It’s time to face up, clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
