More Than Anything

There’s a song that I hear on the radio and the lyrics always capture my mind. The chorus goes like this:
Help me want the Healer
More than the healing
Help me want the Savior
More than the saving
Help me want the Giver
More than the giving
Oh, help me want You, Jesus
More than anything
What do I like about it? It reminds me that I am confused. That I take the good things of this world and use them for my own purposes. It’s true of everything. Consider the list of things that Solomon provides today in Ecclesiastes 2. Each of them, he acquired in excess. But, it didn’t work. In the end, they amounted to nothing. Meaningless, he says.
This is what I like about Natalie Grant’s song More Than Anything. She gets it right. More than anything, she exclaims, I want the Savior, the Healer, The Giver. Give me Jesus. Solomon figured that out too. Verse 25 says it perfectly, “For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him.”
