Driving home from Chicago this past weekend, I spent most of the drive listening to my Hillsong CD “Unidos Permanecemos”, and the song “Me Viniste A Rescatar” came on—-Very similar to the English worship song “Came to my Rescue”. The second part of the song, in that moment, that second, the presence of my drive was really striking to me. The repetition of “Con mi fe, te exaltaré, con amor, te exaltaré, con mi ser, te exaltaré” translating in English to: ”With my faith, I will exalt you, with love, I will exalt you, with my being, I will exalt you.”
I became overcome with the strong sensation and profound realization of my vesselhood—my being a vessel of and for someone so much greater than myself.
- Someone who has a plan I could never contrive.
- Someone who merits all exaltation, and never gives up on reminding me to live a life giving it forth.
- Someone who counters my selfishness, greed, and pride with a gentle reminder of how small, yet capable, I truly am.
- Someone who sees my insufficient gratitude to Him, and still holds me close and dear.
- Someone way more deserving, humble, selfless, loving, helpful, skilled, and worthy that I’ll ever be, but gives me the privilege and honor to feel a portion of this on earth when I give-forth from these character traits.
- Someone who is the fullness of the emptiness I experience in this life.
- The One who fills the vessel, fills my vessel, and calls me out to fulfill my God-given purpose.
My body, my earthly vessel, it simply a means to act out the will of My Father. With my faith, my love, and my being, I shall exalt you.
