Verse of the Day – Isaiah 40:25

Isaiah 40:25

Isaiah 40:25

I have searched for many things, in places that I should never have gone, but the only place I found true hope and peace, was in the presence of God, to Him, no one can compare.

THE MORE by DOWNHERE
I met You like a little child
Wide-eyed and mystified
That You could love even me, yeah
So I’m here to testify
That it’s been an amazing ride with You
And I have never walked alone
Wanna give You every moment, every minute
It takes a lifetime to know You, to know You

And the more You show me, the more You grow me
The more Your glory becomes all there is
And the more I know You, the more I need You
The more I love You, the more You become to me

Fast-forward to the golden years
A smaller pride and a bigger fear
But still, no way are we done yet
I pray that You would keep me mystified
In every way that I will still abide in You
Till You come to take me home
Wanna give You every moment, every minute
And take a lifetime to know You

To know You
And the more You show me, the more You grow me
The more Your glory becomes all there is
And the more I know You, the more I need You
The more I love You, the more You become to me

I wanna give You every moment, every minute
I’ll take a lifetime to know You, Lord
Keep me, draw me closer every moment of my life

And the more You show me, the more You grow me
The more Your glory becomes all there is
And the more I know You, the more I need You
The more I love You, the more You become

The more You show me, the more You grow me
The more Your glory becomes all there is for me

 

Verse of the Day – Romans 6:9-10

Romans 6:9-10

Romans 6:9-10

I strive to live my life as Christ, to live for the Father, though I try, I still fail, but I will endeavour to keep trying.

A BETTER WAY by DOWNHERE
I’m not alone, I really believe
You never go, You never leave
Here and now, You always stay
“I love you” could not be said a better way

It’s everything You’ve promised
There’s no greater love than this from prophets until today
A man laying down His life for His friends
Your sacrifice has spoken, You gave everything
And “I love you” could not be said a better way

I am forgiven, I clearly see
It’s why You came to do all you did for me
Trading earth with heaven, You took my place
“I love you” could not be said a better way

It’s everything You’ve promised
There’s no greater love than this from prophets until today
A man laying down His life for His friends
Your sacrifice has spoken, You gave everything
And “I love you” could not be said a better way

Because You redeem, I know what’s to come
Everything I could lose here, You’ve already won
So You have my surrender with passion obey
“I love you” could not be said a better way

It’s everything You’ve promised
There’s no greater love than this from prophets until today
A man laying down His life for His friends
Your sacrifice has spoken

And “I love you” could not be said
And “I love you” could not be said
And “I love you” could not be said
And “I love you” could not be said a better way

 

Verse of the Day – Matthew 6:33

Matthew 6:33

Matthew 6:33

So many times I seek to get through things on my own, moving back into solitude and my own thoughts, rather than seeking God and the family He brought me to.

LET ME REDISCOVER YOU by DOWNHERE
Your spirit hovers over my waters
Your love burns longer than the sun
The skies of thunder echo Your wonder
Your praises can’t be oversung

The whole universe is witness to only a part of what You’ve done

So let me rediscover You
And breathe in me Your life anew
Tell me of the God I never knew
Oh let me rediscover You

You see my weakness
My pride, my blindness
You wield Your power through them all
Of all the mysteries still
The greatest to me is that You’re faithful when I fall

How can I say I know You
When what I know is still so small

So let me rediscover You
And breathe in me Your life anew
Tell me of the God I never knew
And let me rediscover You

Let me cry “Holy holy holy” (Holy holy holy)
Let me awaken to Your majesty
And see a glimmer of Your glory
Let me abide in You

So let me rediscover You
And by Your grace I’ll follow through
Reveal to me the God I thought I knew

Let me rediscover You
And breathe in me Your life anew
Tell me of the God I never knew
And let me rediscover You
Oh oh oh
Let me rediscover You

Tell me of the God I never knew
Jesus let me rediscover You

 

Verse of the Day – Psalm 116:1-5

Psalm 116:1-5

Psalm 116:1-5

I believe for most of us, these verses say it all.  I thank the Lord, that He is gracious and full of compassion for us all.

HOLY by DOWNHERE
Father, Composer of Love
Oh great God of Abraham, who gave his only son
You are the same, Yesterday, Today
Forever you are faithful
And your covenant remains

Holy is the Lord most high, whoa
Holy is the Lord of lights
Holy is the Lord of life
You are holy, holy
You are holy God

Spirit, a flame in my heart
The same who burned in Isaac calls, and sets me apart
You are my joy, my comforter and peace
You guide my dreams, reveal the truth, and move in me to sing

Holy is the Lord most high, whoa
Holy is the Lord of lights
Holy is the Lord of life
You are holy, holy
You are holy God

Who was and is and is to come
The Father, Spirit and the Son
Holy, holy, holy one
Holy, holy God

Who was and is and is to come
The Father, Spirit and the Son
Holy, holy, holy one
Holy, holy God

Jesus, my brother, king and friend
The heir of Jacob, Son of God
Beginning and the end
You bore my shame, and in death carried my sin
Worthy lamb, who gave your life
Now I can live again

You are holy, holy, you are holy
Holy is the Lord most high
Whoa, holy is the Lord of lights
Holy is the Lord of life
You are holy, holy, you are holy God

Who was and is and is to come
The Father, Spirit and the Son
Holy, holy, holy one
Holy, holy God

Who was and is and is to come
The Father, Spirit and the Son
Holy, holy, holy one
Holy, holy God

Verse of the Day – Psalm 73:23-24

Psalm 73:23-24

Psalm 73:23-24

Even when I feel I’m alone, I need to remember that I am always in God’s presence.

STAND WITH ME by DOWNHERE
I won’t go alone
Even though I like it on my own
When i think that I’m self-contained
I am quite out of control

It’s the weakness in me
Which wants to look so strong
The strength in me
Looks more like the prodigal son

Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me, my friend?

I can’t hold the line
But for the shortest time
The lie is to try to find
A reason why

Help is a word
I have learned to never use
Because I always win
And of course I never lose
But now it’s breaking through

Will you, stand with me?
Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me, my friend?

We’re broken inside
But it’s not by our might
That the Spirit will fight this darkness
And press into the light

I’ll grip the sword
Will you press the shield?
As we wage this war, together
We both will heal

Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me, my friend?
Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me?
Will you stand with me, my friend?

Verse of the Day – Luke 1:37

Luke 1:37

Luke 1:37

My strength alone was never sufficient to break a habit, only with God did I find the strength and the will.

SOMETHING HEAVENLY by DOWNHERE
All the angels see all the angles
with a view from both sides of the line
If I had not such a blind spot
would I have a less difficult time?
Surrendering my ways
I would hang on every word you say

I’m so far from what I wanna be
oh I really am my own worst enemy
Please don’t let me get the better of me
take this earthly thing and make it finally
something heavenly
I wanna be heavenly

Air is cleaner
grass is always greener
for the crowd of hosts up where they are
If I could visit I’d just contaminate it
why so big a place for me in your heart?
to leave your glory home
just to make a broken man your own

I’m so far from what I wanna be
oh I really am my own worst enemy
please don’t let me get the better of me
take this earthly thing and make it finally
something heavenly
I wanna be heavenly

If I try to soar
I will fall for sure
so let your grace break through
and lift me up upon it to be with you

I’m so far from what I wanna be
oh I really am my own worst enemy
please don’t let me get the better of me
take this earthly thing and make it finally

I’m so far
stay close to me
oh oh oh
I’m so far
stay close to me
your making me

something heavenly
I’m gonna be heavenly

Verse of the Day – 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

I thank you all for your prayers and thoughts for my uncle, all my family can do now is place our prayers and our hopes in the Lord.

HOPE IS RISING by DOWNHERE
I’ve lost all my earthly optimism
That it’s all going to be alright
That the good will win this fight
Somewhere between youth
and disappointments
the dream became despair,
the love became a lie

Just now, I’ve reached
the end of my line
Just now, I’m too tired
to keep on trying

Hope is rising,
it’s a sunrise for the end
Hope is rising,
and it’s breathing for me again
Hope is rising again

Soon beneath the roses I will lie
All the memories of my days,
gathered to the sky
Soon every work
will find its worth
And all my strength returned,
to the water and the earth

Just when I reach
the end of my life
Just when my eyes
dim out the last light

From the sorrow, from the fear
From the loss and from the tears
From the darkness, from the pain
From the fall and from the grave
