I Want The Healer

For the last couple of days, I have had the priviledge of leading worship from the Woods stage at Atlanta Fest just before Chad Wallace took the stage to share a message from his heart. It's been a beautiful experience and I'm looking forward to doing it one more time tomorrow. I have a few stories I want to share about this experience and how God is working, but I think I still need some time to process them myself. But, I do want to share with you a song written by Matt Jackson who shared just after us the last two days.

The chorus of this song is echoing in my heart and I hope will be resonating for the rest of my life:

"I want the Healer, not just the Healing. I want the Giver, not just the gifts. I want the Real Thing, not just Something. I want You. I want You."

Too often, we look for the healing and forget that the Healer is so much more than we could ever hope or imagine. I hope you'll let those words simmer in your heart, as they are in mine, and reach out the Healer, the Giver of all good things.

The Healer
By:
Matt Jackson

I don't want to build this house in vain
I don't want to place another stone unless you show me where it lays
I don't want to do this on my own
I just want to be right where You are where I can see what's in Your heart
You are my life, You are my source
And I'm seeking You until all mysteries are known
You are my life, You are my source
And I'm seeking You alone

I want the Healer, not just the healing
I want the Giver, not just the gifts
I want the Real Thing, not just some thing
I want You, I want You
I want You

You have my life in Your control
And I am letting go and letting You tear down my walls
You are the Builder, I am the stone
You are breaking me and making me; it helps me to see
You have my life, You are my source
And I'm seeking You until all the mysteries are known

I want the Healer, not just the healing
I want the Giver, not just the gifts
I want the Real Thing, not just some thing
I want You, I want You

I'm giving You everything
I'll give it all
'Cause You've given me everything
I'll give it all
