Becoming Like You

Heaven's Crush EP

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was out for a run and I was asking Father God if we would be alright.

After two years, I was hearing God again; I was becoming sure in a daily, hourly, minute-by-minute floodgate of His good presence. Sweeter still, in the last month, He was only saying one thing.

“I love you, Jason.”

We were several months behind on our mortgage, our fridge was nearly empty, our pantry was a ghost town. The bill collectors and the lawyers wanted their pound of flesh.

“I love you, Jason.”

But the question I’d asked Him seemed fair, “Will we be alright?”

I got home as dusk settled. There was just enough time to mow the small unruly patch of grass in our front yard. And there were still fumes in the mower.

I settled into the seemingly mundane routine, but my heart never left fellowship with my good Father.

“I love you, Jason”.

I stood on the front porch in the last light of day with one thought. It was heaven-sent, it was revelatory, it was bigger, and greater, and more powerful than any other thought I’d ever had.

“It’s measureless! His love is measureless!”

At that moment, everything in my life changed.

We would be alright.

… Laughing I went in to kiss Karen and hug the kids. Karen kissed me lightly but then she and the kids ran from me while informing me that I needed a shower.

In the shower, I sang, “I’m becoming like you, I’m becoming like you. Let Your love be all I know, till Your glory becomes my own”.  I leaped from the shower, wrapped myself in a towel, ran into our bedroom, riffled through papers on Karen’s nightstand, found a pencil, then back to the bathroom dripping on the linoleum, I wrote…

I’ve been Your echo, I’ve been Your shadow
But my heart is to know You so I can be Your voice
I’ve stood on mountains, I’ve knelt in valleys
From glory to glory my heart will always be Yours
 
I’m becoming like You, I’m becoming like You
Its the cry of my heart my King, that I’d display Your majesty
 
I’m becoming like you, I’m becoming like you
Let Your love be all I know, till Your glory becomes my own
 
Oh, let Your glory come down
Let Your goodness surround, we’re singing
Oh, this revival sound
It’s shaking the ground, its transforming us
 

Many of you have heard me lead this song in worship over the last years. Many have asked when I would record it.

This song is one of the four that will be on the EP titled Heaven’s Crush. This song is an invitation into transformative Love. There is life on this song and album!

My heart is to release this album with my new book, Prone To Love, which releases Feb 18.

We have 9 days left to raise the funding to get this album mixed. If you feel led, please give. If you can’t give, please consider sharing on Facebook and Twitter. Go to the link below for more information on the album, to give, and share.

“You know, I could control you, Ethan. I could force, manipulate or straight up shame you into obedience, you’re only ten. I can make him behave. But someday my boy, you will be a man and beyond my ability to control. But more importantly son, I don’t want to control you, I want you to control yourself. I want you to value freedom as the Holy Spirit does. Do you understand?”

Look Up & Let Go

Grand Central Station. Spring, 1993. Late afternoon. “I’m here,” I thought.“Don’t look up and don’t let go of your bag,” raced through my head.

The Earth Was Never Flat : The Devastation of Sovereign Control

I would like to suggest that sovereign control is flat earth thinking, it’s an institution unto itself, a broken paradigm, a ruler by which so many have measured everything since the fall of Adam. This devastating narrative has dominated humanities thoughts and perceptions for far too long!

Well Done, Tire

We are designed to live a life of risk and trust, to do valiant acts of faith, to live out our radical acts of surrender, to leave it “all out on the field,” all for the glory of our King, so that when we get to heaven we will experience in those 3 beautiful seconds, those 6 stunning words. We are all living for the, “Well done.”
