Like an Avalanche

A special person, namely Katie Nurse inspired me to write my blog post for today. She reminded me of a song that’s just come out by Hillsong named “Like an Avalanche”, hence the title for this blog.

I wanted to share the lyrics because they are so powerful:

 

Beautiful God
Laying Your majesty aside
You reached out in love to show me life
Lifted from darkness into light

King for a slave
Trading Your righteousness for shame
Despite all my pride and foolish ways
Caught in Your infinite embrace

And I find myself here on my knees again
Caught up in grace like an avalanche
Nothing compares to this love love love
Burning in my heart

Saviour and Friend: Breathing Your life into my heart

Your word is the lamp unto my path
Forever I’m humbled by Your love

Take my life
Take all that I am
With all that I am I will love You
Take my heart
Take all that I have
Jesus how I adore You

And I find myself here on my knees again
Caught up in grace like an avalanche
Nothing compares to this love.

Some powerful words: Jesus as Saviour and Friend in contrast with the Servant King. Amazing stuff.

No wonder the writer feels the all embracing grace of God falling like an avalanche. Nothing compares to this love.
