“It’s in Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this Message of your salvation), found yourselves home free—signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit. This signet from God is the first installment on what’s coming, a reminder that we’ll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.”
Ephesians 1:13

I grew up in church. My dad was the principal at a Bible College & later became a pastor of a fairly large church. Yet even with that kind of upbringing I find myself in these moments of doubt & disbelief… in short, it is easy for me to wander. I found myself in a season like this not to long ago, and so like any good musician I turned to music to voice my frustration. What I found is as I tried to put pen to paper to say “God where are you? God you are no where to be found…” instead a song came forth of a God who is ever present in my time of need. In a very special, intimate way God began to remind my heart that He is not far off or distant.

This isn’t the best recording of the song… but this has become somewhat of an anthem for our church so I’m excited to share it with you. I hope if you find yourself in a season of doubting or wandering this song can remind you that God is a good father. He sees you today, He knows you, & He is calling you home.

Verse 1:
Before I was born
Before I was formed
You were scheming
You were dreaming of the day
I would run into your arms
feel your love surround me
rivers of grace
overwhelming

Chorus:
I trade all I am for all you are
I trade all I am for you
Jesus

Verse 2:
When I was running away
Seemed I was destined for shame
you were scheming
you were dreaming of the day
I would lift my eyes to you
singing songs of praise
streams of mercy
there overtaking me

Bridge:
Even in my doubting
Even in my wandering
You are right beside me
calling me home
