Quietly waiting…

This past Sunday in worship at Oakland Baptist Church was Palm Sunday. One of my favorite Sunday’s in the year.

I had the opportunity to lead the congregation in one of my favorite songs, You Will Find Me by Andrew Ripp.  I really enjoy this song because it quietly speaks of God’s majesty.  So many songs we sing in a contemporary worship setting speak of God in grand and bombastic terms with giant choruses and driving rhythms; but You Will Find Me simply states how the great God who created the tiniest raindrop is here for us all, waiting with open arms.

The thought of God quietly waiting for us no matter where we may be,
no matter how weary our soul may be,
no matter how far we may have strewn – is simply beautiful.

Peace,
Mike

    1. No worries – here are the words:
      You Will Find Me
      Andrew Ripp, Ben Rector & Steve Moalkler

      When your soul’s weary,
      when you find doubt,
      when you can’t hear Me,
      lay your troubles down.

      In your dark moments
      when you heart’s weak,
      bring yourself broken,
      You will find Me.

      Who wrote the rain?
      Who wrote the sun in?
      Who calls your name?
      Where are you running?

      I’m gonna be there near of far,
      I wanna meet you where you are;

      Who wrote the rain?
      Who wrote the sun in?

      When you come thirsty,
      when the well’s dry,
      when your soul’s dirty,
      I am by your side.

      When your faith’s broken,
      when you can’t see,
      with My arms open,
      You will find Me.

      Who wrote the rain?
      Who wrote the sun in?
      Who calls your name?
      Where are you running?

      I’m gonna be there near of far,
      I wanna meet you where you are;

      Who wrote the rain?
      Who wrote the sun in?

      You carried all my shame
      when You called my name.
      I am not the same.

      Who wrote the rain?
      Who wrote the sun in?

      You called my name.
      I’m tired of running.

      I’m gonna be there near of far.
      I wanna meet you where you are.

      Who wrote the rain?
      Who wrote the sun in?

      Mmm…
      Mmm…

      You will find me.
