With Everything...

Sometimes it's crazy to think that we are supposed to surrender EVERYTHING when we choose to follow Christ. What does that look like? Is that even possible to do when you live somewhere like America? How do you allow only Him to consume and saturate your whole life?

We're learning that it's a journey... one that is not ever really ever "easy", but one that brings more freedom with every step of surrender. I think there's a reason that I can't ever seem to get this song by Hillsong United out of my mind.

It has been an indescribable experience to watch so many of the Journey students live this out in freedom:

Open our eyes To see the things that make your heart cry To be the church that you would desire Your light to be seen Break down our pride And all the walls We’ve built up inside Our earthly crowns And all our desires We lay at your feet

Let hope rise And darkness tremble In your holy light That every eye will see Jesus our God Great and mighty to be praised God of all days Glorious in all of your ways Oh the majesty The wonder and grace In the light of your name

With everything With everything We will shout for your glory With everything With everything We will shout forth your praise With everything With everything We will shout for your glory With everything With everything We will shout forth your praise And our hearts will cry Be glorified Be lifted high Above all names For you our king With everything We will shout forth your praise With everything With everything We will shout for your glory With everything With everything We will shout forth your praise With everything With everything We will shout for your glory With everything With everything We will shout forth your praise
