Verse of the Day – Romans 8:37

Romans 8:37

Romans 8:37

Without Christ within me, there is no way I would have conquered my addiction and moved beyond it, I would not be here today, not with Christ, who loved us though we were sinners.

HOW LOVE WINS (THIEF)  by STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN
My life began like any other man held beneath a mother’s loving gaze
Somewhere between now and then I lost the man I could have been
Took everything that wasn’t mine to take but Love believes that it is not too late
Only one of us deserves this cross, a suffering that should belong to me
Deep within this man I hang beside is the place where shame and grace collide
And it’s beautiful agony that He believes it’s not too late for me

This is how Love wins, every single time
Climbing high upon a tree where someone else should die
This is how Love heals, the deepest part of you
Letting Himself bleed into the middle of your wounds
This is what Love says, standing at the door
You don’t have to be who you’ve been before
Silenced by His voice, death can’t speak again
This is how Love wins

Did you see this moment from the start that we would drink this of cup of suffering?
I wonder, did we ever meet? Childhood games in dusty streets
For all my many sorrows and regrets nothing could compare to just this one
That in the presence of my King I cannot fall upon my knees
I cannot carry You up to Your throne; You instead, will carry me back home.

This is how Love wins, every single time
Climbing high upon a tree where someone else should die
This is how Love heals, the deepest part of you
Letting Himself bleed into the middle of your wounds
This is what Love says, standing at the door
You don’t have to be who you’ve been before
Silenced by His voice, death can’t speak again
This is how Love wins

What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood, nothing but the blood
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood, Nothing but the blood
Because this is what Love say, standing at the door
You don’t have to be who you’ve been before
And silenced by His voice, death can’t speak again
This is how Love wins.

 

You Found Me – Proverbs 29:23

You Found Me – Proverbs 29:23

You found me
In my fortress of pride
Where I let no one in
And would defend to the end
You broke the walls
You ripped them down
And You found me
Trembling upon the ground
In my fading spirit
With tears slowly falling
You raise me up
Took me from that place
And delivered me to
A place of honour
My God, my hope
Forever thankful I stand
Beneath Your grace

Proverbs 29:23

Take My Hand – Luke 8:49-56

Take My Hand – Luke 8:49-56

Lord take me by the hand
Whisper Your word unto me
Ask me rise and I will stand
For now I am down
And the clouds of death gather
I’ve seen these before
Ready to close my eyes to sleep
Remember You spoke to me then
And held my trembling hands
Your word turned my soul
And I was raise from dead that day
Now I’m asking again
Before the clouds close within
Take my hand and speak to me
So I can rise again

Luke 8:49-56

Luke 8:49-56

Come To Me

Come To Me

Come to me
I will Gather you up
All that are lonely
All that are lost

Come to me
I bring peace to all
All that are honest
All that are true

Come to me
I’ll release your burden
All that are tired
All that are aching

Come to me
And I will show the Father
All that are needing
All that are hurt

Come to me
I will give you new life
All that are willing
All that are ready

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
