Music Monday // Your Presence is Heaven to Me

Okay, so I know this is cliche'. But I really love the idea of posting a song once a week - and what other day makes more sense than Monday? :) Even if I have to sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' (hey, Micah likes it!) I will sing something. I guess you can call it my "New Years resolution." Today's song is a new worship song we introduced at The Springs called, "Your Presence is Heaven to Me" by Israel Houghton. He is amazing. And this song is amazing.

Isn't it incredible to know that one day we will be face to face with Jesus?! The closest we can get to heaven in this world, is when we are in His presence here on earth. Many just returned from Passion 2013, and I am sure they can testify that they were in the presence of Jesus this week! THAT is heaven on earth. There have been a few times in my life where worship has been so extraordinary - that I literally feel out of this world. And I know in those moments that His presence is heaven.

I hope today that you are blessed by these words.

Your Presence is Heaven to Me

Who is like You Lord in all the earth? Matchless love and beauty, endless worth Nothing in this world can satisfy Jesus You're the cup that won't run dry

Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me

Treasure of my heart and of my soul In my weakness you are merciful Redeemer of my past and present wrongs Holder of my future days to come

Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me

Singing, Oh Jesus Oh Jesus, your presence is heaven to me Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus Your presence is heaven to me

All my days on earth I will await The moment that I see You face to face Nothing in this world can satisfy Jesus You're the cup that won't run dry Nothing in this world can satisfy Jesus, you're the cup that won't run dry Jesus, you're the cup that won't run dry

Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me Your presence is heaven to me

Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus Your presence is heaven to me Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus Your presence is heaven to me
