    Turn on the Light (song) JoAnn McFatter CD Raging Beauty

    I read the other day, about Your glory again
    Of Your splendor and Your majesty
    I read the other day about the beauty
    of your holiness
    And I think I heard my spirit cry

    chorus - What is it that keeps the elders
    falling on their faces?
    What is it that keeps the creatures crying
    "Holy, Holy, Holy" ?
    What is it that keeps the cherubim, seraphim
    and the angels in order?
    Oh, won't someone turn on the light?
    God please turn on the light. reveal you Glory

    Out of the North, Exekiel saw it coming
    Four Living Creatures in a whirlwind of a cloud
    Wheels filled with eyes, the Spirit within them
    Engulfed in a raging fire
    Coals burn ablaze, the appearance of torches
    Lightning flashing, like the wings of an army
    Raging worship - I gotta know

    Chorus

    Come release the holy, holy, holy.....
    Release the holy, holy, holy...

    We know we were born to bask in Your glory
    Your very image our pattern of design
    To be immersed in the fierceness of the worship
    The craving of our souls, the craving of our souls

    Chorus

    Oh, let ther be light - reveal your glory
    The holy, holy, holy...

    Oh, the ancient sound (Holy, Holy, Holy....)
    Every tribe, every tonge, every nation,
    (holy, holy, holy....)
    Filling the earth, with who You are (holy, holy, holy..)
    The One who was, the One who is, (holy, holy, holy...)
    This One, this One who is to come (Holy, Holy, Holy...)

    Her words, her music, which is scripture filled, is very powerful. It feels striped down and naked, removing the barriers between me and God.
    I can only listen to it at certain time, their is nothing casual about it, it fully immerses you.
    I spent one whole summer listening to it, when i was very, very, sick, and afraid.
    This is the first time i've pulled it out in a year and 1/2.

    Ps. 27:1
    The Lord is my light and my salvation-
    whom shall i fear or dread? The Lord is the refuge
    and stronghold of my life- of whom shall i be afraid.

    Ps. 91:4-5
    God will cover me with His wings; i will be
    safe in his care; His faithfulness will protect and
    defend me; I need not fear any dangers at night
    or sudden attacks during the day.

    The worshipping of God is a mighty undertaking, it involes all that we are; body, mind, soul, and spirit.

    "simple adore Him!, Breath in all His raging beauty!
    What are you gonna do with a God like this?"

    I could list scripture that matched with most of this, but don't want to overhelm anyone with too much.
    Shalom

    Hi hon,

    I loved the imagery in this song! Very original, but also central to our faith - our hunger for the holy.

    I really like the comments that you add to the scriptures and all that you share. It helps me to make it more personal, to take in the words in an individual way.

    I hope you'll keep doing that!

    Love, Judy

    I'm trying to be consistent, but sometimes it's hard. These posting really help me to, the blessing is returned.
    God amazes me!
    Yesterday, i posted, but the computor took it, poof!
    This sight gets weird sometimes, i'm sure you've noticed.
    Anyways, i didn't have the heart or strengh to repost it.
    I'm having some really tough days. Yesterday, i think someone mixed me up with wet cement! Then got a migraine on top of it.
    God took care of me, i found out to day, that a friend had interceccory pray for me last night with another couple.
    What a blessing to know, i hardly ever talk to this lady, even tho she's very special. (lives in another town)

    Please don't push yourself too hard, hon. There will be times when you just need to rest, and that will be the best thing!

    You need to take care of yourself, and not get sicker by pushing past your limits.

    I'm so glad that someone was praying for you when you really needed it. I've had that happen to me too, and I felt so loved by God that He would put me on someone's heart, when I was so down.

    Blessings to you.
