This song is a Lament. It is my personal experience and expression of the truth that we see set forth by the apostle Paul in Romans chapters 6,7 and 8. Romans 7:21 - 25 (NIV) "So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me , waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man [...]

First things First I have found that the discipline of morning prayer has been a tremendous grace and blessing in my life. Jesus said in Mathew 6:6 “ But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who see’s what is done in secret will reward you.” What a wonderful word and promise this is to us. May this song be a blessing to you, and an encouragement to trust Him in all things as we seek first His Kingdom and it’s righteousness Lyrics [...]
It seems that it is a part of our good human nature to want to share with others that which we have found to be good for ourselves. I have found that the Word of God, both in the scripture, and in the fulfillment of that scripture, The Word made flesh in Christ Jesus, to be the greatest good known to man. I would help any that would come, to come see that love which is our salvation and our healing, the love of God in Christ Jesus poured out for us. This song is an expression of that desire. [...]
1 Peter : 3-5 (NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade --- kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by Gods power until the coming of the salvation that it ready to be revealed in the last time. Lyrics He is Risen, It is finished He is Risen, Savoir Sent [...]
This song is about restored humanity. John 3:16 (NIV) “For God so Loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” God gave His Son for me, and in that my response is to want to give myself for Him. The world that God loves He calls me to love. I receive this as a calling. A calling to see as He sees, hear as He hears, love as He loves. To see in the eyes of every woman, child, and man, the life that God [...]
Sometimes the dam just breaks. It can no longer hold back the grief and sorrow of a lost innocence. But there is the one who beckons the weary and heavy laden and bids them to find their rest in Him, now and forever. ( Mat. 11:28 - 30) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Psalm 51:17 (NIV) Those who sow in tears Will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, Carrying seed to sow Will return with songs of joy Carrying sheaves with him [...]
As faithful as the sunrise, has been my Father in Heaven's Love and Care for me. Through each and every dark night, His Loving Sun has risen on a new and promised day. Lyrics Big old sky fills my eye fills my mind before and behind Big old sky like a grain of sand in the palm of your hand Oh what is man that you consider All my ways, to and fro Who I see and where I go Nothin is hid from your sight I know that I know that I [...]
Trying to navigate our lives in and of ourselves is what we are inclined by nature to do. In the storms and trials of our lives we are reminded of our lack of ability to understand and respond to the unknown circumstances that surround us. Thank God that He teaches and constantly reminds us in His Word that not only is He our creator and sustainer, but also the author and finisher of our faith, a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, the giver of a faith that overcomes the world. This seems to be a [...]
This Song is about True Riches. The Life that our Creator has given us, and how we choose to spend it. To me the answer is summed up in what The Bible calls Wisdom. It was while reading my daily portion of the book of Proverbs that this song was inspired. Proverbs 8:34 (N.I.V.) “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily ay my doors, waiting at my doorway”. Jesus also sums it up when He tells us to “store up for yourselves treasure in heaven where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not [...]
This song is a contemplation on The Golden Rule and all that it implies in our daily living. If I am to love another as I love myself, love then defines the relationship that exists between the two of us. Relationships are a two- way street which come with certain responsibilities. In this context then “Do to others as you would have them do to you,” means that my personal behavior and how it affects and shapes me, would in a secondary manner affect you, and vice-a-versa. Your personal behavior and how it affects and shapes you would in turn [...]
