For Your Splendor Lord

Do y'all ever listen to a song and from the first time you hear it, you feel like it's yours?  I mean, you had such a connection to the words that were sung that it just gripped your heart and you just listened to it over and over? Well, that's how I felt about the song, 
"For Your Spendor", from Christy Nockels latest CD, Glorious.  It's like an anthem for all of us ladies wanting to be the women God created us to be. And being the mom of three daughters and two granddaughters, the lyrics resonated deep within me.

I put together this video for them. It's my prayer.
May they always see how beautiful they are in Your eyes Lord, and that their lives are for Your splendor!

Please read these lyrics then turn up the volume and enjoy!

I'm so concerned with what I look from the outside.
Will I blossom into what You hope I'll be.
Yet You're so patient just to help me see the blooms come from a deeper seed 
that You planted in Me.
Sometimes it's hard to grow when everybody's watching.  
To have your heart pruned by the one who knows best.
And though I'm bare and cold, I know my season's coming.
And I'll spring up in Your endless faithfulness.

With my roots deep in You,
I'll grow the branch that bears the fruit.
And though I'm small, I'll still be standing in the storm.
Cause I'm planted by the river by Your streams of living water.
And I'll grow up strong and beautiful
all for your splendor, Lord.

So with my arms stretched out, I'm swaying to Your heartbeat.
I'm growing with the sound of Your voice calling.
You're bringing out the beauty that You have put in me.
For Your joy and Your glory falling.

With my roots deep in You,
I'll grow the branch that bears the fruit.
And though I'm small, I'll still be standing in the storm.
Cause I'm planted by the river by Your streams of living water.
And I'll grow up strong and beautiful
all for your splendor, Lord.




"They will be called oaks of righteousness, 
a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor".
Isaiah 61:3
