Song of the Week, “More than You Think I Am,” by Danny Gokey

 

Listen here! 

Rumor has it there’s a gavel in my hand
I’m only here to condemn
But let me tell you secrets you would’ve never known
I think of you as my best friend

I love love love this song because it brings to light the complexity of God. We all have our ideas of who we believe God is and what role he plays in our lives, but few of us have truly ventured to find him for ourselves.

This tune makes me want to dig deeper, work harder, and lean in closer to God. I want to get to know him unencumbered by my selfish wants and needs. I want him to be my best friend, my confidant, my everything.

  1. Remarkable. I have only heard a couple Danny Gokey songs. Not this one.

    You’ve inspired me. Songs have influenced me a lot but I don’t think I’ve ever written about it. You’ve inspired me.

    • Aww thanks, I’m glad you were inspired by it! I love this song and music is such a large influence in my life as well. I love sharing why I love the songs I choose every week! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!

  2. I Love the Song and it’s so True , to know God’s good will for us we need God’s Wisdom and empowering through The Holy Spirit as we see confirmed in the Scripture below.

    1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things yea the deep things of God. For what Man knoweth the things of a Man save the spirit of Man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak not in the words which Man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the Natural Man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

  3. I actually enjoy listening to Danny Gokey, especially his song Rise. Thank you for sharing this post. I like that you post a song of the week for each week. 🙂

    • Hi Byron, thanks for stopping by and the subsequent follow!

      I love Danny Gokey and I also like the song, “Rise.” His music is encouraging and always right when you need it 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoy the song of the week portion of the blog. I figure music is a language we all speak, so if there’s a connection to be made, music is always a good starting place.

      What type of music do you generally listen to Byron?
