He's More Than Wonderful

I am a fairly musical person. I really enjoy good music and I really love to sing. God often gives me a song that really speaks to me in different circumstances of life. My song right now is "More Than Wonderful". Have you heard it?

He promised us that He would be a counselor
A Mighty God and the Prince of Peace
He promised us that He would be a Father
And that He would love us with a love that would not cease.

Well, I tried Him and I found His promises are true
He's everything He said that He would be.
The finest words I know could not begin to tell
Just what Jesus really means to me.

For He's more wonderful than my mind can conceive
He's more wonderful than my heart can believe
He goes beyond my highest hopes and fondest dreams.
He's everything that my soul ever longed for
Everything He's promised and so much more
More than amazing, more than marvelous
More than miraculous could ever be
He's more than wonderful, that's what Jesus is to me.

I stand amazed when I think that the King of glory
Should come to dwell within the heart of man
I marvel just to know He really loves me
When I think of who He is, and who I am.

For He's more wonderful than my mind can conceive
He's more wonderful than my heart can believe
He goes beyond my highest hopes and fondest dreams.
He's everything that my soul ever longed for
Everything He's promised and so much more
More than amazing, more than marvelous,
More than miraculous could ever be
He's more than wonderful, that's what Jesus is to me.


As I talked to many people in the last few weeks this song kept coming back to me.

He's More Than Wonderful -
When we spend Christmas with the family that we love.
He's More Than Wonderful-
When that money comes just when we need it.
He's More Than Wonderful-
When you FINALLY find a job.
He's More Than Wonderful-
When you see God answer that 'impossible' prayer.
He's More Than Wonderful -
When the cancer test comes back negative.
He's More Than Wonderful -
When that loved one finally LISTENS to the Gospel for the first time!!!

But...

He's also More Than Wonderful -
When the money is gone.
When you spent another Christmas alone.
When the cancer test comes back positive. Very positive.
When you discover that a loved one has once again gone back to
the besetting sin that they have struggled with for years.
When your child is diagnosed with medical issues.
When your spouse will enter Heaven at an 'early' age after giving
his life for missions.
(PRAY FOR THE KALAPP FAMILY!!!).

These are the things that I am thinking when the Lord brings this song to my mind. These are the people that I will be thinking of when I sing this song in church on Sunday morning. Jesus IS more than wonderful. I am thankful for it, and I will be praying that He shows Himself very real in each of your lives today.
