Still On The Throne

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.  James 1:17

This morning I was going over a song that I wrote some five or six years ago.  This particular song was written in the midst of my grasping for some sort of familiar foundation.  We were struggling to find a church home and it seemed like we were lost and wandering, unable to discern what was right.  It was a very difficult time of confusion and loss of connection.  We couldn’t seem to hear God’s voice; direction was a mystery.

I wish I could say that this was a unique time of feeling upside-down for me.  The truth is that I still struggle with that same type of feeling much of the time.  We belong to a great church, but those feelings of being lost and disconnected still present themselves.  I don’t know the reason my soul is so restless these days.  I know that God will take me where I need to go to know His rest, never once leaving my side.  He is not finished with me yet.  I will have victory in Jesus.  In the mean time I will remember my God and who He’ll always be; my Rock, my firm Foundation.

God is always good, always.  On my pilgrimage from earth to Heaven, through all the valleys and rough places, I encounter His goodness over and over again.  I remind myself that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Still on the Throne

You’re still worthy
You’re still holy
You’re still righteous
You’re on the throne
You’re still mighty
You’re still Provider
You’re still Jehovah
You’re on the throne

A sacrifice, I lift it up, You are God
A sacrifice, I lift it up, You are worthy
A sacrifice, I lift it up, You are my King

Your name is Jesus
You are Redeemer
You are Deliverer
You’re on the throne
You are my Healer
You are my Fortress
You are my Strength
You’re on the throne

A sacrifice, I lift it up, You are God
A sacrifice, I lift it up, You are worthy
A sacrifice, I lift it up, You are my King

You are holy, holy, holy – You are holy, holy, holy – You are holy, holy, holy – You are holy, holy, holy

So here’s my life, I lift it up You are God
Here’s my life, I lift it up You are worthy
Here’s my life, I lift it up You are my King

You’re still on the throne, You’re still on the throne
