If I Cry – Lamentations 3:49-50

If I Cry – Lamentations 3:49-50

If I cry
Will You hear?
Do You hear the tears
Hit the floor?
Still I know You’ll come
You always do
Until then I’ll cry
For this is hard
These tears are my pain
And when You’re here
I’ll cry once again
This time in joy
As my heart rejoices

Verse of the Day – Psalm 121:1-2

Psalm 121:1-2

Psalm 121:1-2

One year ago today Victoria and my two children moved out of my house and I was left alone, devastated.  I felt like there was no way forward, everything I had hoped for had gone.

With nothing left but to lift me eyes to the Lord, He lifted me from my despair and gave me the strength to make it through.  Over this last year I have grown, I have had set backs, but made it through, thanks only to the Lord.

ENTER THE GATES by BRYAN & KATIE TORWALT
My eyes on Your faithfulness
O God let me not forget to sing in the valley
To look toward Your goodness
My heart set on who You are
You’re the light that consumes the dark
The joy and the strength to lift up my hands and sing

I enter the gates with nothing but thanks
I want to magnify Your worth
I want to bring You more than words
I enter the gates, come reckless with praise
I’ll bring a heart that wants You first
All for Your glory

My feet on the battle ground
My weapon will be my sound
I will not be silent
My song is my triumph

I enter the gates with nothing but thanks
I want to magnify Your worth
I want to bring You more than words
I enter the gates, come reckless with praise
I’ll bring a heart that wants You first
All for Your glory

Sing, My soul will sing
My soul will make this place an altar
Make this place an altar

I enter the gates with nothing but thanks
I want to magnify Your worth
I want to bring You more than words
I enter the gates, come reckless with praise
I’ll bring a heart that wants You first
All for Your glory

 

Shadows – Matthew 4:16

Shadows – Matthew 4:16

From depths of darkness
Beneath shadows of doubt
I saw the light of the One
And reached for the way out

The battle is never over
Darkness will always try to rise
Still I’m looking towards His light
Not listening to the shadow’s lies

Matthew 4:16

Matthew 4:16

Stars – Psalm 8:3-4

Stars – Psalm 8:3-4

The night is clear
Your stars so bright
Set by a careful hand
The beauty of the night
The Maker’s hand
Who set the heavens in place
Formed the moon and stars
That same hand moulded me
For He who put the beauty in the sky
So fearfully and wonderfully made
Made us to be like stars
To shine within His grace

Psalm 8:3-4

Psalm 8:3-4

Shut Down – Philippians 2:13

Shut Down – Philippians 2:13

Have I shut down this soul?
Let the shadows grind it to a halt
To stop the work You do in me
Putting a halt to the work You do through me
How do I clear the blockage?
Reset the wheels to go
Only by giving You control
Letting everything else go

Philippians 2:13

Philippians 2:13

Reaching? – Psalm 36:5-6

Reaching? – Psalm 36:5-6

Is it me that has to reach?
Is it I who must pull down the mountains?
Can I ever part the clouds?
To see the love of heaven
Or am I just being human
So lost and so blind
For Your love reaches everywhere
There is nowhere I could hide
Your love reaches the heavens
It’s spread so far and wide
And I don’t need to reach for it
It’s already all around me

Psalm 36:5-6

Psalm 36:5-6

Verse of the Day – Luke 24:17

Luke 24:17

Luke 24:17

Christ spoke with His followers upon the road they were travelling, He sat with them, ate with them, still they didn’t recongize Him, not until their eyes were finally opened.

This is like my life, I can see now how traveled with me, how He spoke to me in the times I couldn’t see Him, not until my eyes were opened to the Saviour, the One who died for my sins.

BEAUTIFUL JESUS by JONATHAN DAVID & MELISSA HELSER
Hey Jesus, won’t You come
And dress me in Your thoughts
Pick out Your, favourite ones
I’m holding out my heart
You cover gray, empty space with
Colour from Your well
Deep love, pouring out and
Filling up my shell

Beautiful Jesus
My glorious friend
The One who never grows weary
And stays till the end
Oh, how I love You
I cannot begin to say
All of the reasons that I love
To sing Your Name

Holy Spirit, won’t You come and
Cover me in light
Illuminate the, dark space with
Colour yellow bright
Like the stars, coming out and
Filling up my night
The glory of Your, promises
You make wrong things right
Oh You make wrong things right

Beautiful Jesus
My glorious friend
The One who never grows weary
And stays, till the end
Oh, how I love You
I cannot begin to say
All of the reasons that I love
To sing Your Name
Beautiful Jesus
My glorious friend
The One who never grows weary
And stays, till the end
Oh, how I love You
I cannot begin to say
All of the reasons that I love
To sing Your Name

Oh, how I love You
Oh, how I love You
Oh, how I love You
Jesus
Oh, how I love You
Oh, how I love You
Oh, how I love You
Jesus

No one’s like You
Keeper of my heart
Beautiful Jesus

No one’s like You
Keeper of my heart
Beautiful Jesus
