Verse of the Day – 2 Corinthians 9:6

2 Corinthians 9:6

2 Corinthians 9:6

Do we sometimes sow the wrong thing or if we are honest, are we truly sowing the word of truth to others?

ALL AT WAR by DOWNHERE
I’m learning to stand
The more that I fall down
It’s the law of inversion
And it’s all turned around
And I’m staggered
By the clash inside my soul
So purposed for good
But inclined for evil

It’s justice and mercy
The old dichotomies
All along the front lines
Of my heart
In both doubt and belief
The sinner and saint
The old arch enemies
All at war in me

I was born depraved
But created for the divine
With death in my bones
In my heart eternal life
I’d love for Eden
But I’d kill for Rome
I’m native in a land
That is not my home

You are the beginning
And You are the end
Into your great reversal
I am born again
A beautiful redemption
You leverage even sin
In me your final victory
I know You’ll win

Into light, from the shadows
Into life, from the grave
Into love, into love
 

Verse of the Day – Ezekiel 44:15

Ezekiel 44:15

Ezekiel 44:15

These priest remained faithful when Israel drew far from God, they proved faithful and were drawn closer to God as a reward.  Through Christ we no longer are required to give sacrifice, He was the great sacrifice for our sins, but our faithfulness will still be rewarded.

When those around us may move ever further from God, we must remain steadfast and faithful.

REMEMBER ME by DOWNHERE
The brightest stars of history
The triumphs, failures, infamy
Just blend into tapestry
The ebbing waves of memory’s beach
Will mark the sand where waters reach
Impressions are all they leave
Words forgotten, never to return
But these precious few are flames that always burn

“Remember Me, remember Me
Every time you drink, and every time you eat
Remember Me, remember Me.”

So we drink the wine and break the bread
Our senses will remind our heads
From now until Kingdom comes
Proclaiming what is carved in stone
A death that only One could own
So many would come to know

A life begotten which cannot be earned
The promise that will not be overturned
The blood that spilled, the body broke
Will not depart my frontal lobe
The Great Rebirth of 33, it was, it is, will always be

“Remember Me, remember Me
Every time you drink, and every time you eat
With every word you speak, and every breath you breathe
Remember Me, remember Me.”

So take the bread, take the wine
Look beyond this mortal time
And wait for the Kingdom

Verse of the Day – Psalm 42:8

Psalm 42:8

Psalm 42:8

I am thankful that in the harder times His song is with me in those dark nights, sometimes that is all I have to cling on to, the only sound I can make is my prayer to my God.

LITTLE IS MUCH by DOWNHERE
What is the measure of a life well lived
If all I can offer seems too small to give
This is a song for the weaker, the poorer
And so-called failures

Little is much when God’s in it
And no one can fathom the plans He holds
Little is much when God’s in it
He changes the world with the seeds we sow
Little is much, little is much

Who feels tired and under-qualified
Who feels deserted, and hung out to dry
This is a song for the broken, the beat-up
And so-called losers

Little is much when God’s in it
And no one can fathom the plans He holds
Little is much when God’s in it
He changes the world with the seeds we sow
Little is much, little is much

Consider a Kingdom in the smallest seed
Consider that giants fall to stones and slings
Consider a child in a manger
Consider the story isn’t over
What can be done with what you still have

Little is much when God’s in it
And no one can fathom the plans He holds
Little is much when God’s in it
He changes the world with the seeds we sow
Little is much, little is much
 

Verse of the Day – James 1:5

James 1:5

James 1:5

Many times have I found myself not knowing which way to turn, getting myself into a mess trying to find a solution.  But I only find that when I pray and let God speak into my situation do I find my way, the right way.

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

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, You gave everything
And “I love you” could not be said
A better way

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 – 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
