What do I know of holy?

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for more than a week now. Our God is so big. He is so good. Do we know Him? Do we recognize Him when He is at work in our lives?

I continue to see who I am not, and who God wants me to be. I’ve asked myself — Am I willing to be battered into the shape of the vision God has for me? Am I willing to be used by Him? The God who created me, the God who created … everything.

There are days, I confess, when I just don’t want to take the hits anymore. I’d rather sit-up on the mountain top and live in the memory of the vision God has for my life. It’s more relaxing. My pride and my control don’t have to take a beating. But by doing that, I lose sight of who God really is.

As a follower of Jesus, He has called me to be holy. And that is hard to do … without Him. He is the regenerator of my faith. My little “I am” sulks and pouts when God says do. “I am who I am … has sent me to you” (Exodus 3:14). He must dominate. He is my redeemer. Only through Him and my surrender can I be holy.


I made You promises a thousand times
I tried to hear from Heaven
But I talked the whole time
I think I made You too small
I never feared You at all No
If You touched my face would I know You?
Looked into my eyes could I behold You?

What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were might to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees

What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?
And a God who gave life it’s name?
What do I know of Holy?
Of the One who the angels praise?
All creation knows Your name
On earth and heaven above
What do I know of this love?

What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of Holy?
