Prone to Ponder

nothing compares

Nothing compares to the greatness of knowing You, Lord….

I posted these lyrics yesterday. I just realized why these words mean so much to me. I hear them and I feel calm instantly, I feel this love wash over me.

I was having a bad couple days last week, my heart was exhausted because I kept getting attacked mentally. All of this doubt and fear and self-hating and confusion kept racing through my mind. I didn’t even want to be thinking what I was thinking, I wanted to turn my brain off and just be silent and still. Be still, and know that I am God. It was the devil trying to get in and cause me to question myself, what I believe and what I know. “Lord, I do believe, please help me overcome my unbelief!”

I was driving home from work after a day like this and I heard this Third Day song on the radio and it’s exactly what I needed to be reminded of.

Nothing compares to the greatness of knowing You, Lord.

I just felt my heart swell, I was instantly at ease. Because there comes a point where it’s not about simply “believing” anymore. The enemy can try to break my faith or test my beliefs. But nothing compares to the greatness of knowing my Lord and Savior intimately. You can’t convince me of something that disputes the love I have for my God, the grace I have experienced personally in my life, the peace I can have with Him in my heart to watch over me for all of my days. The greatest testimony is the life changed from knowing Jesus.

He, who is in me, is greater than I will ever be and I will rise…
