Mark Schultz Album: Stories & Songs Track: Everywhere
(Mark Schultz and Brown Bannister) Psalm 139:7-10
I was thinking of placing an ad Inside a magazine So I could find You
I was picking up book after book Taking a look At trying to define You
I was lookin for proof of Your life Wondering why I couldn't verify YouThen You came and You spoke to my heart Now I see Where You are...
Chorus You're every Time I turn around In every sound You're in the very air I breathe You're up above And now I know You're in my soul You're in the very depths of me And every step I take I take by faith Oh and now I see
I believe... I believe... I believe... Yes, I believe, I believe, I believe That You're everywhere
I was checking the best-seller list For something I missed To spiritualize me
I was following step after step Trying my best To reinvent a new me
I was looking for truth in my life I even tried To psychoanalyze me
Now I'm seeing right from the start You were there In my heart
I believe in the power of the Holy Ghost I believe in the One who has made me whole I believe with my heart I believe with my soul I believe that you laid down Your life for me I believe that You rose up and set me free I believe what I know Oh and I know I believe You're Everywhere
"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; If I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."
I was sitting outside a coffee shop one-morning reading the book "Wild At Heart" by John Eldredge when all of a sudden everything made sense to me. In the quietness of the morning I had a huge moment of clarity from God about who He was, His purpose for me, and what He really meant for this world to be. I wish it could have lasted forever but it faded as quickly as it appeared. It was as if He was giving me a glimpse to show me that the larger story really does exist. I realized that even when I don't perceive God around me it only takes a glimpse behind the scenes to realize that He is everywhere and everything all at once.
