How Deep I sit here right now, I'm feeling a bit on the nauseous side, so this won't be a long one ;). But, nauseous or not, I am still overflowing with thankfulness from a wonderful Sunday. To be honest...the morning was a somber one... My husband couldn't have picked a more beautiful, worshipful set of music to go along with the message from Mark 14, as Pastor Scott preached through the agony Christ experienced in Gethsemane.

It's hard to know?? All that Christ suffered for us. We have never felt the wrath of God as Christ did, as He carried the sins of the world to the cross. And as believers, because of the great agony Christ suffered on our behalf, we never will! is definitely hard to wrap my mind around such an amazing gift of love the Lord gave us, around ALL that he sacrificed for us, and around all that He is still doing for us.

And now, I can't help but post the lyrics to one of the songs we sang in church yesterday. It is by far one of my fact the whole CD is one of my favorites, and so incredibly gospel focused. The songs often make me want to cry, but that is never a bad thing. :)

How Deep

You were broken that I might be healed
You were cast off that I might draw near
You were thirsty that I might come drink
Cried out in anguish that I might sing

How deep is Your love
How high and how wide is Your mercy
How deep is Your grace
Our hearts overflow with praise
To You

You knew darkness that I might know light
Wept great tears that mine might be dried
Stripped of glory that I might be clothed
Crushed by Your Father to call me Your own
