Tree roots grow down into the soil and draw water and nutrients to the trunk, branches, twigs and leaves. Our roots must go deep into the Kingdom and draw similar nutrients to our being. This song helps elaborate that for me.
Years ago I enjoyed a CD by Michael Card and John Michael Talbot. Recently two songs from that collection have come to my attention. And yep, I cannot quit humming them. They roll around in my spirit and bring me joy and encouragement. One of those is called “Live This Mystery.” I hope you, too, are able to LIVE this mystery. Here are lyrics from LyricsFreak (not exactly in the order they are sung) and also the recording for your enjoyment and encouragement.
When I consider the secret of the One Who dwells in me That there is truly a presence In the heart for all who believe To listen to a silent call The quiet hunger to give it all As the river seeks to be Forgotten in the sea My life is hidden in Thee I must live this mystery Like a moth around the flame Drawn to the light And to the pain Since my life is hid in Thee I must live this mystery In Him we live, in Him we move In Him all things are made new The mystery of life in Christ Is Christ can live in you I hear the silence , it's clamoring There is only Christ, He is everything In the language of the soul It's burning like a coal There's a voice that is saying "You can be whole" A life where all is new Of timeless moments waits for you With the heart alone you see You must live this mystery
