03. Choose

Life Light Up
by Christy Nockels



 

Let me be in love with what You love
Let me be most satisfied in You
Forsaking what this world has offered me
I choose to be in love with You
I will choose to be in love with You

Let me know the peace that's mine in You
Let me know the joy my heart can sing
For I have nothing Lord apart from You
I choose to call on Christ in me
I will choose to call on Christ in me


For in the fullness of who You are
I can rest in this place
And giving over this, my journey Lord
I see nothing but Your face


Let me know that You have loved me first
Let me know the weight of my response
For You have long pursued my wandering heart
I choose to glory in Your cross…
I will choose to glory in Your cross!

For in the fullness of who You are
I can rest in this place
And giving over this, my journey Lord
I see nothing but Your face

And I bow down…
Humbly I bow down…
Humbly I bow down…
I bow down…


Written by Christy & Nathan Nockels

Behind the Song:
“This song was written as a prayer for our family a few years ago. We felt the Lord clearly call us in 2004 to lay down our journey as “Watermark” to become available to God in a new and fresh way. There is something to be said sometimes for “clearing the table” in our lives and letting God put back on the table what He desires for us to focus and spend time on. This is what happened with us a few years back and it was only the beginning of God teaching us to choose the things of Him over our own wants and wishes. I love Psalm 37:5, it says, “Commit your way to the Lord, trust Him and He will act.” It’s no small task to “commit your way” to the Lord everyday, but it is required of us in order to stay aligned with where He is going and in love with the things He loves. Since His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts, we are wise beyond words to daily choose to follow and “glory” in the things of God. As God put some things back on my “table” that year, I was surprised at first to realize it was a very focused and intentional season He was calling me to. Really there were only a few things on the table... Him, Nathan and my children... In Psalm 37, verse 4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”. I’ve always read that to mean, “If I serve Him, He will give me what I desire”. During this time of pruning and simplifying God very clearly showed me that the verse means that He is our “desire giver”. He will show me what my desires are to be. All I can say is that the more I have “given over my journey”, the more He has miraculously instilled and fulfilled what I desire. This has brought a rest into my life like I’ve never known. When I commit my way, when I choose to pursue a love relationship with Him, my beloved, He draws near to me and He acts on my behalf in the strangest and most beautiful ways." - Christy Nockels
