The Past And The Future

The Past And The Future

I won’t let my past
Define me or berate me
I won’t let my history
Chain me or defeat me

I’ll hold to the word of the Lord
For my past has been erased
I’ll embrace His promise
For from the ashes I am raised

All history has been written
My story has been recorded
All to come is to be discovered
My future is mine to be decided

Where I am found
My Father is beside me
Where I am destined
My Father will lead me

As The Stars Shine

As The Stars Shine

I’m not going to let you die tonight
He gave my death that you should live
This isn’t the end just the beginning
Together we have so much to give

So do let go as the stars shine
Let despair fall under the light of the moon
My peace will wash over you
Like the rain washes away the tears

I’ve seen the pain you try to sleep in
I felt the tears as I cried my own
I understand the hopelessness in your heart
But I need you to know tonight this will end

I am here beside and I won’t let go
I will stay until you walk the paths of heaven
Your pain I will carry upon my shoulders
Your burdens I will life from your heart

When you wake beneath the new sun
You world will feel so different
I tell you that you’ll no longer belong to the earth
From this moment you are a child of heaven

Wake my child and open your eyes
See my face and hear my words
I never let you die, I brought you life
Now rise above and embrace the truth

I’m not going to let you die tonight
He gave my death that you should live
This isn’t the end just the beginning
Together we have so much to give

By The Victory

By The Victory

By the victory of our Christ
His cross standing high above our life
We shall see truth
And we shall embrace hope

By the victory within our scars
His healing touch upon our wounds
We shall overcome
And we shall taste freedom

By the victory of love’s great sacrifice
His life given that we may see The Father
We shall come to life
And we shall live in eternity

Your Love For Me

Your Love For Me

Your love for me
Stretches beyond the bounds
Of Earth and stars
Beyond the seas
And far above the mountains

Your love for me
Stretches wherever I go
Either to the heights
Where my spirit flows
Or the depths to which I fall

Your love for me
Is greater than anything
That I could hold
Within this heart
Or that I could ever dream

The Stream And The Sea

The Stream And The Sea

Let our hopes grow
Like a tree beside the stream

Let our fears disappear
Like clouds beyond the sea

Let life be smooth
Like stones below the stream

Let our worries fade
Like ripples upon the sea

Let love be refreshed
Like plants within the stream

Let hate be washed away
Like sands into the sea

Let us be filled with faith
Like the rains fill the stream

Let us meet with Christ
Like the stream meet the sea

Verse of the Day – Psalm 86:5-7

Psalm 86:5-7

Psalm 86:5-7

It feels like I have made this prayer so, so many times, yet still I make it because I know He will always answer me.  Sometimes it’s not the answer I am expecting, but it is always what is best for me.

LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING by RED ROCKS WORSHIP
I see his body breaking,
I see his fingers bleed.
I see the darkness tremble at the crown below his feet.

In the darkest hours there on Calvary,
He was sweetly broken, broken beautifully Broken beautifully

So come on into the waters
Come let the broken sing
Come all you sons and daughters
His Love changes everything
Come when the fear is fighting
And find in the Risen King
Come on and let the Light in
Your Love changes everything

And when the heavens opened
I saw the sins of man
Become a crown of glory as He died and rose again

And in the darkest hours,
And in the valley low
I will fear no evil
‘Cause you’ll never let me go, you’ll never let me go.

So come on into the waters
Come let the broken sing
Come all you sons and daughters
His Love changes everything
So come when the fear is fighting
And find in the Risen King
Come on and let the Light in
Your Love changes everything.
Your Love, Your Love, Your Love changes everything (repeat)

And I can overcome when death has lost its sting
Your love, Your love, Your love

Oh… Oh… Oh…
Whoa… Whoa…

And in the darkest hours
And in the valley low
I will fear no evil
‘Cause you’ll never let me go, you’ll never let me go.

So come on into the waters
Come let the broken sing
Come all you sons and daughters
His Love changes everything
So come when the fear is fighting
And find in the Risen King
Come on and let the Light in
Your Love changes everything.

Your Love, Your Love, Your Love changes everything
Your Love, Your Love, Your Love changes everything
Your Love, Your Love, Your Love changes everything
Your Love, Your Love, Your Love changes everything

Oh… Oh… Oh…
Whoa… Whoa…

 

Within The Bottle – Isaiah 51:12

Within The Bottle – Isaiah 51:12

Within the bottle
A world so crushed
All dreams
Faded into nothing
Everything held
Had become lost
As the turmoil boiled
Within the bottle

I was lost
Could I ever be found?
It seemed the end
Was I all I had
Not to say goodbye
Just to simply leave
Body cold, no life left
Within my bottle

But there I was
Staring at the lifeless
Speaking lies
Of all my worth
Still He came that day
To set me free
From the prison
Within my bottle

As days passed
His comfort He gave
To bring peace
To a torn heart
My God I found
As He found me
Seeking an escape from
Within the bottle

Isaiah 51:12
