Spotlight

Today’s spotlight is on a song.  It’s one that I’ve posted about recently, and there’s a couple of reasons for that.  I don’t know if you remember me talking last week about a welcome rabbit hole both Daisy and I fell into with the song  Is He Worthy, as I found the duo Shane & Shane through mine, and Daisy found a gem of an article through hers.

I know Chris Tomlin has come out with his rendition of the song recently, and as usual, he does an incredible and beautiful ‘job’ with it.  But the song was written by Andrew Peterson, whom we’ve shone the spotlight on before.

Personally,the song is so beautiful that I have loved each of the three versions I’ve posted the past couple of weeks.

If you haven’t listened to it before, I really hope you will today.

Do you feel the world is broken?
(We do)
Do you feel the shadows deepen?
(We do)
But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through?
(We do)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?
(We do)

Is all creation groaning?
(It is)
Is a new creation coming?
(It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?
(It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?
(It is)

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy of this?
He is

Does the Father truly love us?
(He does)
Does the Spirit move among us?
(He does)
And does Jesus, our Messiah hold forever those He loves?
(He does)
Does our God intend to dwell again with us?
(He does)

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
From every people and tribe
Every nation and tongue
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God
To reign with the Son

Is He worthy?Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of this?
He is!
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
He is!
He is!

The lyrics and the story behind it are something Daisy and I were also talking about.  When you read the lyrics, what does it make you think of?  What Scriptures come to mind?  What parts of Jesus’ essence are highlighted here?

Daisy said something and I totally agree….  Today is the last day of March.  Easter is coming in a little over a week, and this song along with what Andrew wrote this song for, makes me look at the whole reason of Easter in a whole new, and deeper way, and it’d be so worth exploring in the coming weeks as we prepare ourselves for the most incredible love story ever to be displayed at the Cross.

Here is the blog of Andrew’s story of the song

I hate that Jesus had to die for me. I despise the thought of putting Him there where I should be.  But I am so overwhelmed and still can’t fathom how much love He has, and am so incredibly grateful for Him.   Thank You Abba, for Your indescribable Son, and thank You Jesus for bearing it all for me, and all of us.

Have a beautiful, blessed Sunday all ♥
