AMAZED
Behind the Song

"This song came to me after I had been looking back over some journals I had written right after high school and during my early college years. I had been involved in some youth ministries and was so amazed at the things I witnessed God doing in other peoples' lives. I saw such a passion and excitement for God. I was confident and secure in His love and purpose. What about now, though? The more I thought about it, I had to ask myself the question, 'Do I still feel that way or have I since lost that fervor as the responsibilities and realities of life have divided my attention?' If you're a Christian, you're probably well acquainted with Psalm 46:10: 'Be still and know that the I am God.' Honestly, being "still" is just not something that comes easily for me. I'm a restless and anxious person by nature. I stew and I worry... and although I say that I've given things over to God, the truth is, that letting go and truly trusting Him is something that I struggle with. To lay it all down at His feet freed from worry for one moment, to bask in His glory and love is my prayer through this song. To let Him open my eyes and change my heart... and in that stillness, to stand amazed in the presence of His greatness." - Kristin
