The More I Seek You

The band at our retreat this weekend led a song that that I don't remember hearing before. I love the lyrics and I am still trying to soak them up. I think it might be the only reason I didn't have a nervous breakdown with everything I had going on this weekend. Here's how it goes:
The More I seek You
The More I find you
the more I find you
The more I love you

I want to sit at you feet
Drink from the cup in your hands
Lay back against you and breathe
Feel your heartbeat
This love is so deep
It's more than I can stand
I melt in your peace
It's overwhelming

While we were singing this on Sunday morning, I had Jack sleeping in my lap. His head was against my chest and I had my arms wrapped around him. While my comprehension of something so divine will never be complete, I feel like I have a deeper understanding of how God feels about me now that I'm a parent.
