I'm a normal, red-blooded woman in that I'm a total sucker for the song The Way You Look Tonight. It's just one of those lovely songs that gets me every time.
One of my favorite lines in the song is, "There is nothing for me but to love you." And tonight while I was out on an errand, those words kept running through my mind. I was praying, finding myself in a place of total surrender, and realized I'm ruined for all else but trusting God. There is nothing, no one else for me.
There is nothing for me but to love You, LORD.
There is nothing for me but to trust You.
There is nothing for me but to hope in You.
There is nothing for me but to obey You.
There is no real option but for me to put every last ounce of my trust in the One who is totally worthy of it.
Come what may, there is nothing else for me.
Have you found yourself in this place? It's not always an easy place to be, because arriving there usually means you've managed to exhaust a heck of a lot of other options in your own strength.
Nope, not an easy place to be. But a sweet place. A safe place.
And really, the only place.
There is nothing for me but to love You.
