I would like to tell you that recurring themes show up in my songs because I’m really good at focusing on concepts until I perfect them. I would LIKE to tell you that but I’d rather be honest. The existence of recurring themes in my songs is due to the simple fact that I can be a little hard-headed when it comes to learning lessons.
“Only in You” is a reminder that joy comes from exactly one source – my relationship with my Heavenly Father. Period. When that relationship is being nurtured, inner joy is palpable. When I am setting aside time to be with my Abba my sense of purpose is well-defined and the next step is crystal clear. It’s when I start worrying about what others think, when I allow my focus to be misdirected, that I find myself struggling. I start to doubt my calling and purpose. I start to second guess what I’m supposed to do next.
So this song draws my focus back to the ONLY source of joy and the only being able to confirm my sense of purpose. It’s that simple and that difficult.
I find my greatest sense of worth
In the presence of my King on bended knee.
You will make known to me the path of life; In your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. ~Psalm 16:11
