Colby and I went to Harvest America this past Sunday night which was live in Dallas and broadcast nationwide. Thanks to some friends, we got awesome seats and got to hear one of our favorite bands live, For King and Country. Mercy Me and Phil Wickham also played.

I posted one of Mercy Me’s songs, The Hurt & the Healer last year. Well recently I have been listening to one of their newer songs, Greater, on repeat. Mercy Me played it live Sunday night and it gave me such a new meaning after seeing the lyrics on screen.

No matter what we face, God is greater. He desires for us to bring our doubts, fears, hurt, tears, shame, guilt, and pain to Him. Our identity isn’t based on any of those things, but based on what He calls us – redeemed. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I have!

Bring your tired
Bring your shame
Bring your guilt
Bring your pain
Don’t you know that’s not you’re name
You will always be much more to me

Every day I wrestle with the voices
That keep telling me I’m not right
But that’s alright

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

Bring your doubts
Bring your fears
Bring your hurt
Bring your tears
There’ll be no condemnation here
You are holy, righteous and redeemed

Every time I fall
There’ll be those who will call me
A mistake
Well that’s ok

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

Greater - Mercy Me

    So fun! My friend’s brothers are in For King and Country! I’ve never really listened to them, though. I should give it a listen today.

    LOVE all 3 of those artists. I bet that show was incredible. So funny how seeing someone live and also the lyrics on screen just bring it all home that much more…and turn us into even bigger fans, which I guess is the point. Ha! Glad ya’ll had a blast!

    THIS is my favorite song right now! I love the beat but the words make me cry every time. Have you heard why they wrote it before? They have a little segment about it on the radio and it made me love it even more. Sorry I’ve been MIA, friend! I’m so ready for life to calm down! Next week I’m thinking it will! 🙂
