Holy One

I have this song on my iPod in my iPhone.  I’ve heard it before – it’s one of my favorites – but I heard it with fresh meaning the other day as I was taking a walk.  The song is sung and written by Mark Schultz with Chris Rice on some of the vocals.  If you are familiar with Mark’s music you will know that he writes very honest and moving lyrics that have a universal appeal – making them something that you and I can identify with.  I just knew I had to share them with you today – someone needs to be reminded once again of that gentle friend that came to save all who are lost.  And teach us what real love is all about.

I was thinking about this as I was walking along.  Friends come and go in our lives – but Jesus was special.  He came – got involved – saw his disciples for what they really were – and who they really weren’t – but gave himself anyway.  And in that same way – he sees you and me for what we really are.  There are no secrets from Him.  He wants to be involved – wants to have a special relationship with us.  He wants to be that friend who will not leave – will not disappoint – will not dismiss – will not be temporary.

How many friends do you know like this?  One who will not desert you?  One who is not easily miffed, confused, unfeeling or uncaring?

Jesus is the only friend who sees the good and bad of character – all the flaws and dark things that lurk around the heart –  who is merciful – does not judge with anything but love – does not shame but who shows grace and is willing to restore.  He loves you just as you are and sees only the best in you.  This is a true friend.

I want to challenge you today – get to know the “Holy One” – He is the greatest friend you will ever have.  His influence and presence will make such a huge impact on your life and others around you.  Link up with Him and find purpose in life and one who loves and accepts you just as you are.  His friendship will bring life and hope to you today.

God Bless

Gentle friend
You knew my name
Yet with Your hand You calmed the storm and healed the lame
As You spoke
People came
And as the crowds would gather ’round they called out
Holy One, are You the Holy One, who was sent by God to show the way

I wasn’t there
The night they came
Those who saw and feared the miracles you made
You took the nails
You bore the pain
And as they hung You on the cross and mocked you
Holy One, if You’re the Holy One let your God come save You from the grave

I just heard the news today
I just came to find you but they said You’d gone away
I just wanted to hear You say that you had to go
But that You’d be back again

Early morn
Break of day
Came in time to find the rock You rolled away
I found Your robe
An empty grave
And as I fell upon the ground I cried out
Holy One, You are the Holy One, and You came and gave Your life away

Holy One, You are the Holy One and You came and gave Your life away

I am the life, I am alive, I came to show the way

Another AWESOME Mark Schultz song – Enjoy!!

As You Are

This is my favorite Mark Schultz song.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do – and receive great hope and comfort from the lyrics – as the Lord urges you to just come ‘as you are’ – no questions asked.


God Bless

Come as you
open hands
broken heart
as you are

Come with your joy
and your pain
with your doubt and your shame
as you are

Prodigal daughters and sons
all will be forgiven
no matter what you’ve done
and when the Father sees you
He will run
No matter how far
come as you are

Come, please don’t wait
there’s still time
it’s not too late
to come as you are

Prodigal daughters and sons
all will be forgiven
no matter what you’ve done
and when the Father see you
He will run
no matter how far
come as you are

Prodigal daughters and sons
all will be forgiven
no matter what you’ve done
and when the Father sees you
He will run
no matter how far
come as you are

And when the Father sees you
He will run
no matter how far
come as you are
