THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
The song 'In You I have my being' came as a direct answer from the Lord one day when out of frustration I asked “Lord what is my purpose?” The previous week I had attended a Christian camp and listened to many inspiring testimonies of souls being reached for the Lord and wondered if I could really make an impact for His Kingdom, if I was doing 'enough'. Within minutes the melody of this song along with words from Acts 17:28 poured out of my mouth; “In Him we live and move and have our being”. It was as if the Lord had said to me: “Your purpose is found only in me and in bringing me glory. The way you can reach souls is to continue to do the very thing you love to do for Me”. A weight was lifted - His yoke is easy and His burden is light! God purposes in us to will and to do for His good pleasure. Our purpose is to know Him, the true God Jesus Christ (John 17:3). We have been created for His glory (Isaiah 43:7).
I hope this song can reaffirm in the believer their purpose and identity in Jesus and His purposes in our lives. May we hold onto the reality of the cross of Jesus bringing us into an eternal relationship with God, that we may be confident in the hope of His calling, partakers of the riches of his glory and the greatness of His power!
