“Greater” – Monday Musical Musings


As you know, I was away at a conference last week. I missed some of the usual things I do throughout the week and one of them was Praise in Motion. I missed the ladies, I missed the movement, I missed being in God’s presence.


IMAG1492So just to remind me of His great love and devotion toward me, during all of our breaks at the conference, music was played. Many of the melodies were familiar and each time I wanted to break out in dance. But I didn’t.


And then, the very last song I heard was “Greater.” It is one of my favorites at Praise in Motion, partly because of the moves. We “lasso” during the chorus and I love it! So it took everything within me to not get up and “get my groove on” (ha, ha).


Compiled with my thoughts and the way my mind works, this song came at a perfect time. Not too early in the conference and not at all. But just when I was thinking, “Shan needs another assistant…I can never do as good a job as these ladies do!”, God reminded me that I am not able to do this job (or any job) without Him.


So “thank you” to the one who chose the music at the Senior Administrative Assistants Conference last week. You spoke to my heart!


So today I will share this beautiful reminder that we can lay it all at the feet of Jesus and stand firm in the truth that He has overcome this world and that through Him, we can stand before Him without condemnation, or fear, or inadequate, or                             (you can fill in the blank). Because greater is the One living inside of you and me than he who is living in the world (1 John 4:4).




Bring your tired
Bring your shame
Bring your guilt
Bring your pain
Don’t you know that’s not you’re name
You will always be much more to me

Every day I wrestle with the voices
That keep telling me I’m not right
But that’s alright

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

Bring your doubts
Bring your fears
Bring your hurt
Bring your tears
There’ll be no condemnation here
You are holy, righteous and redeemed

Every time I fall
There’ll be those who will call me
A mistake
Well that’s ok

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
