MP3: I Will Run To The Arms Of My Father

I Will Run to the Arms of My Father - Song History
Words & Music: Dennis Jernigan
Received on March 9, 2012

I was fortunate enough to attend and minister at a conference - Legacy 2012 - in Houston, Texas
honoring one of my fathers in the faith, Jack Taylor. One of the speakers was Bill Johnson,
pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, CA. He spoke of the Kingdom of God in his first session
and how we must come to the Father in the attitude of little children. He told a story of God
gracing his own life with evidence of His power and love in a very specific way. One day, sitting
by a lake, he began throwing small pebbles into the water. As he did so, the small fish began
to eat them and spit them back out, thinking they were small bugs. Bill wondered to himself
as a bee flew into his sight, “I wonder if a fish would eat a bee.” At that very moment, the bee
promptly fell into the water - and a fish ate him! Bill was overwhelmed with God’s love and
power in that instant. As soon as he told this story I was reminded of how many times I have had
similar occurrences - and how I take those moments as little surprises of God’s love for me and
presence with me. I missed Bill’s next two sessions because I was so consumed with receiving
this song. I found a piano and poured my heart into this. This is one of my all-time favorite songs
God has given me. I love just being with my own children and I love blessing them - and I am
an earthly father - so how much more does our Father desire to just be with us and to enjoy OUR
presence? Think about Whose you are and who you are as you sing this song...and enjoy the
Kingdom you are a citizen of!

[Jesus said], "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God
belongs to such as these. "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the
kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” And He took them in His arms and began to bless
them, laying His hands on them
.
Mark 10:14-16 NASB

Verse
Sometimes I make life too complicated
Sometimes I just need to stop awhile
That's when I must remember why I was created
I must come to Father like a child

Chorus
I will run to the arms of my Father
Like a lost child gladly found!
Run with joy to the arms of my Father
As He lifts me from the ground!

And He throws me high and He catches me
Like He can't get enough!
And He laughs with me!
And the look in His eye!
The look in His eye!
He just loves me!

I will run to the arms of my Father
To that place where He calls me to dream!
Like a child who believes that His Father is the best
And He's strong enough to do anything!
And He makes me feel like I'm the only one!
And He looks right through me and He says, "Well done!"
And the look in His eye!
The look in His eye!
He just loves me! loves me!

Verse

Chorus
I will run to the arms of my Father
Like a lost child gladly found!
Run with joy to the arms of my Father
As He lifts me from the ground!

And He throws me high and He catches me
Like He can't get enough!

And He laughs with me!
And the look in His eye!
The look in His eye!
He just loves me!

I will run to the arms of my Father

The look in His eye!
He just loves me! loves me!

Bridge
You love me with a love that will not let me go!
Through storm or fiery trial
You love me! I know!
You love me with a love that will not let me go!
Your love, a mighty river!
I want to get lost in the flow!
I want to get lost!
I want to get lost!
I want to get lost in the flow!

Chorus
I will run to the arms of my Father
Like a lost child gladly found!
Run with joy to the arms of my Father
As He lifts me from the ground!

And He throws me high and He catches me
Like He can't get enough!
And He laughs with me!
And the look in His eye!
The look in His eye!
He just loves me!

I will run to the arms of my Father
To that place where He calls me to dream!
Like a child who believes that His Father is the best
And He's strong enough to do anything!
And He makes me feel like I'm the only one!
And He looks right through me and He says, "Well done!"
And the look in His eye!
The look in His eye!

He just loves me! loves me!
