I Came For You

A year ago, I wrote a reflection for “I Came For You” in my old blog. But instead of redirecting you there, I would be posting it here.


This was part of the lyrics, and is also the title of a worship song by Planetshakers. To give you the context of where this line appeared:


“All it takes is one moment
And just one touch from you
I put aside all distractions
Cause I came for you, I came for you
I need you more than ever
Nothing else satisfies
All my life I surrender
I’ll live for you, I’ll live for you
I came for you, I came for you”

It sings about readiness to receive the Lord. It sings of surrender and letting the Lord take over our lives: take over our concerns, our desires, our decisions, and every aspect of our life.

When this part was sang, I felt this outpouring of love in my heart that translated to a few tears falling to my cheeks. It’s like there was a feeling of a burden being lifted up and carried by someone much stronger, much more enduring, and much more powerful than myself. It seemed like my heart was all of a sudden filled, and my love tank overflowed.

It is such a powerful line.

I came for you.

I think this is what we all feel whenever we go to Mass or to our prayer meetings. We don’t acknowledge it sometimes, but yes, we come to church for God. To feel Him, to show Him love, to listen to Him. To worship Him, to give Him thanks. Because we believe in Him, we come to Him.

I came for you.

When I go to the adoration chapel, I go there to visit the Blessed Sacrament, to pray, and sometimes, to bring out in agony everything that I’m anxious, angry, concerned, worried, and frustrated about. Doesn’t seem like I came for Him, right?

But come to think of it, I did come for Him. I came to pour out myself to Him. I came to surrender myself to Him. I came to offer Him what I’m carrying, whatever burden/load I have at the moment.

I came for you.
I came for you.

As I pour out myself, as I surrender, I empty myself.. And I came for Him to fill the void, the emptiness after I surrendered.

So come to Him! How ever you are, come to Him. Declare that you come to Him when you visit Him. Make this your cry of worship to Him. Because I believed that He can fill, we trust that He can answer, and we know that we will receive.

“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”

Hebrews 11:6 | NASB
