simply put

24 07 2008

sometimes i think that we can tend to complicate life, love and faith so much that we lose the simple essence of what’s really important.

i love the song “simply put” from fred hammond‘s latest album “free to worship”.  i wanted to share the lyrics here and encourage you to dig through all the crap that has piled up in your life over the years that has kept you from really knowing and running in the truth of God’s love for you.  fall in love again with the simple fact that the Lord of all creation considers you his own and not only does he love you, but he likes you… i mean, he is really into you!

i don’t really need to tell someone their future
i don’t really have to see the things that can’t be seen
i don’t need another hyped up church encounter
or another clever new years theme
i’m not looking for another goose bump sermon
or a word that leaves me passed out on the floor
my basic needs are really very simple
to know you love me, you like me
and i am Yours

my learning could go on throughout the ages
but i just need the plain and simple of what’s real
i could memorize and quote a million pages
but i’d rather just express the way i feel
i’ve tried so hard to know the deepest revelation
so i could stand and tell the nations what it means
but i found the greatest gift wrapped in your salvation
it’s really much more simple than it seems

so i relinquish all my witty observations
leave my so called sacred knowledge at the door
when you died you answered every single question
you said you love me, you like me
and I am yours

my learning could go on throughout the ages
but i just need the plain and simple of what’s real
i could memorize and quote a million pages
but i’d rather just express the way i feel
all those complicated things have no appeal
so i’d rather keep it simple, keep it real
yes i’m done with all the things that make it
difficult to know

you love me, you like me
and I am yours
