Wednesday Worship: The Door

I can’t believe it’s been twelve weeks of Wednesday Worship! I just want to let y’all know how much I have loved hearing the ways God is teaching you through music, and my heart has been ministered to by you. Thank you!

This week I heard a song I hadn’t heard before by Jill Phillips, and I’ve listened to it over and over and over, because, well, I’m obsessive like that. It has really spoken to me of the truth of trusting in Jesus. The Door can be found on her Nobody’s Got It All Together CD. Frankly, anyone who titles their CD Nobody’s Got It All Together has become an instant friend in my mind. Jill just doesn’t know it yet. Written by her husband, Andy Gullahorn, Jill sings about reality with simple melodies and strong lyrics that speak from the heart.

How many times have I come to Jesus with my broken heart, anxious mind, burdens that I cannot bear, and every time He is there to heal, calm, and carry me. Beginning with the day I brought a broken heart and life to Him asking Him to be my Way, Truth, and Life, He has always opened the door. He never hesitates when I ask, seek, and knock. He is always there. He is mine. I am His. My life is not my own. I have nothing to bring him of my own good. Yet when I come with my struggles, He takes them and gives me Himself. So today and every day, I enter His door and delight in His presence.

I come to you with my broken heart in my hands
I come to you with my broken heart in my hands
Since you brought dead ones to life
I know you can do that with mine
So I come to you with my broken heart in my hands

I come to you with an anxious and troubled mind
I come to you with an anxious and troubled mind
Just like you did to the seas
I know that you will bring peace
So I come to you with an anxious and troubled mind

I ask I seek and knock
I ask I seek and knock
I ask I seek and knock
That the door will be opened

I come to you with the burdens I can not bear
I come to you with the burdens I can not bear
Your yoke is easy so I
Can trade them for one that is light
So I come to you with the burdens I can not bear

I ask I seek and knock
I ask I seek and knock
I ask I seek and knock
That the door will be opened
the door will be opened
the door will be opened

I come to you with a life that I do not own
I come to you with a life that I do not own
The door to your kingdom is grace
And you gave your own life away
That the door will be opened
the door will be opened
the door will be opened
the door will be opened
the door will be opened
the door will be opened

Amen! What are you laying in the arms of Jesus today?
