I Wish

I have posted this video before – but I ran across it again today and it seems fitting. I love how real Cindy is – how appropriate her lyrics and how cute she is even when she misses some of the words – it doesn’t even throw her off!

This is for all my friends struggling and recovering from cancer – all those who have lost someone they love – and for all those who like me are searching for answers to unanswered questions of life. My prayer is that you will realize that the love of God is deep and wide – big enough for all these questions, problems, sickness and even death.  And that you may know that you are not alone.

God Bless

That Intangible “Want”

Do you really want what you think you want?

Yesterday I heard the above quote while listening to a message on the prodigal son.  The kind of quote that puts a different spin on things – that gets right to the heart of the matter – just when I thought I had heard every angle on every story in the Bible after hearing them for years.

I took notes – but for some mysterious reason, this morning I went to look for them on my Bible app and they are gone.  Mostly, I just wanted to get the above quote, right – but maybe there is a reason why I lost them.  The whole of the message was wrapped up in that simple question.

In the middle of the message, when the question flashed on the screen, I remember closing my eyes and shutting out everyone around me.  I thought of the things that I have thought I wanted, only to find out later that they would have not been the best thing – maybe even harmful to me.  And I thought about the many times I insisted on having my way anyway.  I thought about the pain of consequence – the people I have hurt – the things I wish I could do over and it humbled me.

We have all done this.  Whether it’s a relationship, position, or finances we are all guilty of wanting something more.  That intangible thing that’s hanging out there – the proverbial “keeping up with the Jones’s” is that force that drives us constantly upward and onward.  The thing that we know for sure – will make us happy.

I remember asking God for something and arguing with Him – it was a very one-sided conversation, but He let me rant and rave for a while.  I was sure I knew what was best for me.  I can remember the time and place where I was – the confusion and storm going on in my mind and heart.  There was one thing I knew for sure would make me happy – be best for me – would take care of all my problems, etc.  I wanted to be right.  And if I’m honest – at times I still think I am.

Cindy Morgan wrote these lyrics, “sometimes heartaches are just blessings in disguise”  I wonder how many times we pray for something, plead, CRY OUT, stomp, fuss, fight, argue, try to justify, and wear ourselves out – only to find out later (sometimes much later) that it was a blessing NOT to get what we asked for.

Oh there are sometimes that God lets us have what we are asking for.  Sometimes it is the only way He can get our attention and bring us into right relationship with Him. It may be a person, thing, or circumstance but we are sure that this one thing will provide that ultimate happiness and fulfillment.

 “Be careful what you pray and ask for – you just might get it” 

Sometimes the things that we get – through our own insistence to be right – can cause us untold misery and consequence down the road.  Because of the selfish nature in which we ask for them – or even feel justified to have them, might seem good – even exciting and fresh – with the promise of lasting fulfillment, but in the end there may be more rippling effects of negative than we could ever imagine.  

Lord – help me to value your protection and wisdom for my life.  Help me to listen to you when you withhold from me those things I think I want and need.  Help me to be sober enough and have enough sense to think about the long-term consequences for my actions.  Help me NOT to be stupid.  Amen

When was the last time you asked yourself the question:  Do you really want what you think you want?

God Bless

The Master’s Hand

One of the very best songs by Christian recording artist, Cindy Morgan.  I love these lyrics.  Take a listen – when was the last time you were touched by the Master’s Hand?

God Bless

I Wish…

I wish…things were different

I wish…my friend didn’t have to deal with cancer AGAIN.

I wish…that a simple “I’m sorry” took care of everything

I wish…people would quit being so stubborn

I wish…there was no “victim mentality”

I wish…everyone would forgive

I wish…I could go back in time with what I know now and fix something

I wish I had my friend back

I wish everyone could get it

I wish everyone was as happy as I am

I wish

I wish

I wish

I would say these lyrics by Cindy Morgan sum up EVERYTHING I’ve been feeling.  This artist GETS IT.  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  Thanks, Cindy.

Take a listen – God Bless.

Wish I didn’t feel so helpless

Wish I didn’t act so selfish

Wish I didn’t wring my hands night and day

My hair was a little bit smoother

My jeans fit a little bit looser

And I always knew the right things to say

I wish I wouldn’t hide what’s been going on inside

And I wish you wouldn’t get scared and run away

Wish I was doin’ better with all the things that matter

I guess I got some learnin’ to do

Wish everyone had someone to  hold them and to love them

The way I’m always gonna love you

I wish wishes came true

I wish there was a cure for cancer

Wish somebody had an answer

And all God’s children never got hurt

I wish Eve never bit that apple

Young men never went to battle

And I didn’t get so mad at the world

I wish I was more like Jesus and could pickup all the pieces

And make a better life for my baby girls

Wish I was doin’ better with all the things that matter

I guess I got some learnin’ to do

Wish everyone had someone to  hold them and to love them

The way I’m always gonna love you

I wish wishes came true

And for everything I’m wishin’ I know someone’s up there listenin’

So I’ll say my prayers when I go to bed

Wish I was doin’ better with all the things that matter

I guess I got some learnin’ to do

Oh I wish everyone had someone to hold them and to  love them

The way I’m always gonna love you

I wish wishes came true

Sometimes wishes come true

I wish, I wish

How You Live (Turn Up The Music)

The Best So Far (Cindy Morgan album)

Image via Wikipedia

This wonderful song written by the great Cindy Morgan is fast becoming one of my favorites.  Recorded a couple of years ago by the group “Point of Grace” it needs to be noted that Cindy’s original lyrics were slightly “edgier” for the simple reason, she said – “Because I’m married”.  But because “Point of Grace” wanted to record it – they asked Cindy to rewrite the first two lines so it could be universal and not just for the married lady.

I love how Cindy writes.  She really seems to get it – the good, the bad and the ugly all mixed up together in wonderful and poignant lyrics that transcend gender, era and circumstance.  I have posted her music videos before to showcase not only her songwriting ability – but also her great and versatile singing voice.  She is also an accomplished pianist and often during videos she is playing keyboards.

This song is about making every moment count.  And as Father’s Day approaches – and we remember our Dads and our husbands  – I want to challenge you to make every moment count with the “Dads” in your life – Hey – TURN UP THE MUSIC!!!

God Bless!

Wake up to the sunlight
With your windows open
Don’t hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress
Use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
Have what you want
But want what you have
And don’t spend your life lookin’ back[Chorus]
Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances
Let it all out
You won’t regret it
Lookin’ back from where you have been
Cause it’s not who you knew
And it’s not what you did
It’s how you liveSo go to the ballgames
And go to the ballet
And go see your folks more than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children
Dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him every night
Don’t run from the truth
Cause you can’t get away
Just face it and you’ll be okay[Chorus]

Oh wherever you are and wherever you’ve been
Now is the time to begin

So give to the needy
And pray for the grieving
E’en when you don’t think that you can
Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow-man
Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
Cause in the end there’s nobody else

[Chorus]

Cause it’s not who you knew
And it’s not what you did
It’s how you live

Letters From War

Not going to lie – I cried like a baby viewing this great song sung by Mark Schultz.  And Co-written with the great Cindy Morgan one of my all time favorite artists.
This is for all you military moms out there! May all your sons and daughters –

Be Safe.

God Bless
