All You’ve Ever Wanted

“When we fail, Satan throws lies at us. He wants us to remain failures. He whispers, ‘Are you sure you’re even saved? Look at what you’re doing.’ He wants us out of the Word and into the mirror. If Satan can get us to focus on our circumstances and ourselves, he can mire us in numbing guilt and neutralize us. Remind yourself of this truth: I may have tripped a thousand times and stumbled back into church a wretched mess, but every time, Jesus has waited on me. A song hit me. A verse pierced me. A prayer crushed my heart. In some way, God spoke to His wayward child. Just when we’re starting to thrive, the Enemy will try to derail us. He’ll bring up our past. He’ll make us doubt our future. He’ll put obstacles in our way. He’ll even make us doubt whether all of this is real and whether we really belong to God. Even when we do the worst we can possibly do, Jesus catches our gaze. And He says, ‘You don’t have to start again for Me; I’ll start over with you.'”

– Mark Hall, lead singer of Casting Crowns

All You’ve ever wanted,
All You’ve ever wanted,
All You’ve ever wanted was my heart!
Freedom’s arms are open;
My chains have all been broken;
Relentless love has called me from the start,
And all You wanted was my heart…
