God, can you pump me up?
The Lord God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
Your words are a lullaby, soothing my spirit, quieting my soul. When I expect a "Here we go, Tami, here we go" shot in the arm, something about perseverance and pushing ahead and running the race, you simply say, "Come here. Be still." You don't put a hand to my back, propelling me forward. You make me take a deep breath. You slow me down. You put wind in my sails as I sit in your presence. You are my source of energy.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in his wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of his glory and grace.
