Here I am to Worship

"Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness. Opened my eyes, let me see"

It's one of the lines of one of the songs we'll sing this week at church. It's also a line that I have sung many, many times through the years.

I remember standing in the kitchen of the married house, and the words just came forth. The song had been stuck in my head, and now I was singing it aloud. It was the moment I realized how true the line was. Over and over again, He had stepped into my dark world, opened my eyes and shown me the truth.

Countless times. Sometimes it was a little something that I had a misconception about, other times, I was just flat out wrong. Often I had chosen - on some level - to look away from the truth, rationalize it or minimize it back in congruence with my perception, or my wish for my life.

When the big truths came to light, the words would get hung in my throat. All I could do is hum and cry, until the chorus:

"Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down. Here I am to say that You're my God.
You're altogether lovely, althogther worthy, altogether wonderful to me"

So, so true in my world. Thank You, God.
