Holy Dissatisfaction


This morning, I was reminded of this song from years back. I couldn’t help but play it over and over. It has put a voice to the very cry that is in my heart. There is a pain caused by dissatisfaction and I guess it is good for us to endure it. We need something that will keep us awake at night, something that will cause us to toss and turn in divine unrest. Besides, the Holy One in heaven Himself is consumed with desire for His people.

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet,
till her righteousness shines out like the dawn,
her salvation like a blazing torch. — Isaiah 62:1

Believe (Lyrics)

I say on Sunday how much I want revival
But then on Monday, I can’t even find my Bible
Where’s the power
The power of the cross in my life

I’m sick of playing the game of religion
I’m tired of losing my reason for living
Where’s the power
The power of the cross in my life

I’m not content just to walk through my life, giving in
To the lies, Walking in compromises now
We cry out as a generation that was lost
But now is found in the power of the cross

Chorus:
We believe in You
We believe in the power of Your Word that is true
We believe in You
So we lay down our cause
That our cross might be found in You

I’m not satisfied doing it my own way
I’m not satisfied to do church and walk away
I’m not satisfied there’s no love in my life but You
I’m not satisfied living in yesterday’s hour
I’m not satisfied to have the form but not the power
I’m not satisfied, Lord I am crucified in You
(Chorus)

So we lay down our cause
That our cross might be found in You
