There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God (4x)
I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad (2x)There is a fountain full of grace and it flows from Emmanuel’s veins
It came and it healed me
It came and refreshed me
And it came and it washed my sins away
For the past few weeks, I have been asking the Lord to show me what songs mean. I don't want to just sing the words. I want to understand what I am singing about.
At the conference last weekend, we sang this song and the Lord so faithfully gave me a picture. Here it is...
I was standing in a fountain and the Lord was splashing me with water. So I splashed Him back. This wild splashing went on for a while and I felt that He told me that this song is made so that we could have fun together.
Later in our worship time we sang the song "Running" by CFNI. There is a line in that song that says, "leaving everything behind". When we sang that line I was again in the fountain with the Lord only this time, He took my hand and I stepped out onto the bank. Then He told me that the splashing wasn't just having fun, but it was taking care of business too. He told me He was washing me clean as we were playing in the water. So I was a new woman when I stepped out of the fountain. In the water I left my harshness, jugdementalism, criticism, selfishness, pride, anger, my hard heart, sarcasm, and stress.
Thank you Lord for meeting me in such a personal way. You are truly an awesome God!
