Hey there friendlings,
Today I have gone through all of my FAVORITE songs in the Hillsong United, Empires album. I have found verses in the song that I believe significantly stand out to me.
1.Here Now, Madness.
“Still my heart,
Let your voice be all I hear now .
What this means to me: I will let my heart be calmed and I will listen to Him. This will entitle me to His freedom!
2.Say the word
“and when you say it is done, it is done”
What this means to me:This is so significant in my life because I know that in every challenge I face that brings me down, He’s already paid the price and I don’t have to live in pain.
No measure knows Your worth
Where mercy finds me first
If you sought perfection
I’d die tryin’ to reach it
But this broken heart is all You want”
What this means to me: It says it all, God cannot be measured by how great He truly is because it’s impossible, He’s just too great! He finds me and surrounds me with positivity and grace. He seeks perfection and if I were to seek it too, I’d fail. But in the failure, He wants to love me.
3.Touch the sky
“My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground”
What this means to me: With God, my heart is finally found a place to call home, I am in complete freedom, This all happened because I let Jesus be in control of my life. Even when I’m falling physically, I’m growing and being held up, spiritually. When I give him my life and surrender, I am on top of the world.
4.Street Called Mercy
“Every breath I take
Is a breath to say
I am Yours now forever”
What this means to me: Every step I take, every breath I make, is for and from him and everything I do is to exalt him.
5.When I lost my heart to you
“Trading crowns to wear my shame
The Prince’s throne for the cross that bore my thorns”
What this means to me: Jesus traded his crown with mine. He took my shame on the cross to make me perfect. He was superior even when he was on the cross.
6.Even when it hurts
“Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder, then I’ll sing Your praise”
