For Your Splendor

Dear Grady & Wren,

This morning while I was driving downtown to work, I was listening to the newest Christy Nockels album.  Christy is one of my favorite female artists, not only because of  her amazing vocals, but because she helps lead me to the throne with her songs.  This morning, that is exactly what happened.  I came to a stop light when the chorus of For Your Splendor was playing.  As I waited for the light to turn green, you two began moving around in my tummy and I began to meditate on the lyrics. Tears came to my eyes and I started singing and praying the words of this song over your lives as well as mine.

My sweet precious children, as your mother, this song speaks deep into my heart.  My prayer is that the words of this song [mainly the chorus] will be applied to your lives.  
For Your Splendor

I'm so concerned with what I look like from the outside
Will I blossom into what You hope I'll be
Yet You're so patient just to help me see
The blooms come from a deeper seed that You planted in me
Sometimes it's hard to grow when everybody's watching
To have your heart pruned by the one who knows best
And though I'm bare and cold, I know my season's coming
And I'll spring up in Your endless faithfulness

[Chorus]
With my roots deep in You, I'll grow the branch that bears the fruit
And though I'm small, I'll still be standing in the storm
'Cause I am planted by the river, by Your streams of living water
And I'll grow up strong and beautiful, all for your splendor, Lord

So with my arms stretched out, I'm swaying to Your heartbeat
I'm growing with the sound of Your voice calling
Your're bringing out the beauty that You have put in me
For Your joy and for Your glory falling

[Bridge]
Raise me in your love, love, love
Raise me in your love
Raise me in your power
