What Do I Know of ‘Holy?’

Have you heard the song — “What do I know of holy?”

The song is performed by Addison Road.  It is amazing.  In this song, she asks what do I know of Holy?  What do I really know of the Creator of the universe?  How small we are.  When I first heard this song, I felt like I had just ran into a wall.  Wow!  I had spent months forgetting who God really is.  He used to be my every breath.  He used to be my BFF. Suddenly through the hurts of life, He was small.  Through the death of a little girl I had spent countless hours praying for life, He became smaller.  Through the disappoints of my own life and the frustrations caused by others, He was pretty much non-existent.  My family tried to speak to me. They tried to tell me but I didn’t listen.

 

Then this song.  It quite literally brought me to my knees.  A mom of three is busy and all of a sudden my list became unimportant.  Everything could wait.  There was only that thirst inside me.  I wanted to listen to every word over and over and over.  So I loaded it to my phone.  I texted the name of the song to my best friend and my husband.  I needed them to hear it.  I needed them to hear my heart poured out through the words of another.

 

I needed to feel.  I needed to remember who my God is.  Who He has always been.  In that instant, He pulled my heart back.  He began to realign my world.  Fire or fury, sacred or beautiful … He showed me my purpose.  The one He planned for me from the very beginning.  The one He spoke in Jeremiah when the words were written – He has plans for me!  He has a purpose!  He has the direction and if I just seek Jesus FIRST and His righteousness, then I would find peace.

 

Admittedly, it’s not always easy to follow His plan.  I heard once that it is easier to die for Christ than to live for Him.  That’s true in my mind.  To die for Him is an immediate reward.  To live for Him can seem like a struggle, particularly while similarly showing His glory to everyone.  It’s a challenge but He promises the reward.

 

So what do I know of Holy?  Nothing.  I am so small and insignificant.  I am one of 7 billion.  Who am I to know what Holy is?  What do I know about the Creator of the universe?Well, I have learned that He loves me.  I have witnessed that to Him, I am significant.  I know that to Him, I am adored.  I know that to the God who died for me, I am worth every ounce of pain He suffered.  In my heart, I realize this now … and as long as He is my focus I will remember this with every breath I take. More importantly, I believe it.It is written;

 

“Be ye holy; for I am holy.” (I Peter 1:16)

 

Blessings always,

Lyrics — What Do I Know of 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?

 

(CHORUS)

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?

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 mighty 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

 

(CHORUS)

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?

(CHORUS 2)

What do I know of Holy?

What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?

And a God who gave life “its” 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?

 

(CHORUS)

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?
