Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

I've been listening to Selah tonight, I love their music. They sing a lot of hymns and older songs. Songs with rich words and theology. Songs too of deep experiences. When you hear them your heart swells with understanding, you know what that person was trying to express. You can hear the yearnings of their hearts echoed in your own. I think this song, Wonderful, Merciful Saviour, spoke to my heart the most tonight. Although I Need Thee Every Hour, There is a Fount and All My Praise also touched me.

Wonderful, merciful Saviour
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would've thought that a Lamb could
Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost our way
Oh, we've hopelessly lost the way

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for
Wonderful, Merciful Savior

I'm so thankful for music to lift my thoughts to God's throne, to give means to express my praise. Praise is powerful, not to mention a command. I know when I praise Jesus it honor's him and it changes my heart.
