Have you ever been overwhelmed by God?
That is the question I have been asking myself the past couple of days. At SSWC, we learned a new song entitled “Overwhelm Me.” It is a beautiful song. Here are the words to the chorus:
Take me from this place and put me in the place where You are
Shake this ground I stand on, I want to be dependant on You
On only You
What does it look like to be overwhelmed with something? I remember feeling overwhelmed the night I proposed to Heather. The anticipation of that moment finally happening was almost too much to handle. I could literally feel and hear my heart about to beat out of my chest as the words “Would you marry me?” came out of my mouth. My life was forever changed in that moment.
Merriam-Webster.com defines overwhelm as “TO COVER OVER COMPLETELY.” Isn’t that interesting? So according to the secular dictionary, to be overwhelmed by God means to have your life covered over completely by God. Hmmmmmmmmm…
God, please overwhelm me. Cover my life up with you.
