Would I know You now?

Here is a great throw back Thursday!

Enjoy and God Bless!

 

Wayne Watson
Would I know You now if You walked into the room
If you stilled the crowd–If You light dispelled the gloom
And if I saw Your wounds–Touched Your thorn pierced brow
I wonder if I’d know You now
Would I know You now if You walked into this place
Would I cause You shame–Would my games be Your disgrace
Or would I worship You–Fall down upon my face
I wonder if I’d know You now
Or have the images I’ve painted
So distorted who You are
That even if the world was looking
They could not see You–The real You
Have I changed the true reflection
To fulfill my own design
Making You what I want
Not showing You forth divine
Would I miss You now if You left and closed the door
Would my flesh cry out “I don’t need You anymore”
Or would I follow You–Seek to be restored
I wonder–I wonder
Will I ever learn
I wonder–Would I ever know You now

Falling

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

What does it mean to rest in the shadow of the Almighty?  As I pondered over this verse this morning, chewed on it while taking my morning walk and drinking in the beauty of the early day, I also wrestled with the concept.  Does this mean that if I don’t dwell in the shelter of God – I won’t find rest?  Yes…and no.  Mostly yes.
Real rest comes from feeling safe.  Knowing that no matter what you do, good or bad – or what others have done to you – you can always comes back and rest under his great arms of love.  Just fall in.  Feel completely loved.  No matter what.
I believe if it’s safety you’re looking for – you’ve come to the right place.  This song is one I can’t shake since the first time I heard it – I pray it will be a blessing to you today.
God Bless
My canyon of transgressions,
It echoes through my troubled mind
Reminding me of desperation,
And of the peace I long to find

I wrestle with this world around me,
I forge the chains that hold me down
But it was your love, a dead world’s pardon
You gave it all, you gave for me

I’m falling into your love overwhelming,
I’m falling into your grace
I’m falling in where my heart knows no wrong
I’m falling into you

To you my life I will surrender,
Surrender heart, mind, flesh and soul
Reveal to me, reveal your calling,
It is your will I long to know

Shine On Us

This is one of my favorites written by Michael W. and Debbie Smith – sung by Philips, Craig and Dean. Enjoy!

God Bless

Maybe I’m Amazed

If you did not see this performance – you need to.  Caleb Johnson is a name we will be hearing a lot in the future.   He has proven that he can sing any style equally well – and I will be surprised if he does not win this competition.  I think he did Paul McCartney proud this week!

God Bless

Too Many Tears

This song played this morning on my Spotify station.  I could not get the tune out of my head and decided to look it up on youtube.  What I found was a beautiful slide show of pictures from our recent history – at least over the last 50 years or so.  I hope you enjoy the poignant message in this song as much as I did.

 

God Bless

“Too Many Tears”

Did you see the first man on the moon?
Have you seen the first light of day?
When there wasn’t someone stuck inside
Something like the moon
Something like a star that’s lost its way
Did you go to Dallas on that day?
Have you been to where they broke a dream?
Where there really isn’t room for doubt
Somehow we got lost
And the truth is buried somewhere in-between

And everyone, everywhere
Take time and dry your eyes
‘Cause too many tears, too many tears
Have been cried
Just look into that beautiful blue
That beautiful blue, blue sky
And know too many tears, too many tears
Have been cried

The mystery of why they had to leave
I’m only one of thousands saying why
Why a balcony in Memphis Tennessee
Seems trapped in time
Just an angry finger pointing at the sky

Would you wait to stand inside his shoes?
And is the best all you have to give
The barefoot man lived a simple life
I guess he knew
Something’s die so other things might live

So everyone, everywhere
Take time and dry your eyes
‘Cause too many tears, too many tears
Have been cried
Just look into that beautiful blue
That beautiful blue, blue sky
And know too many tears, too many tears
Have been cried

Oh come on everyone, everywhere
Take time and dry your eyes
‘Cause too many tears, too many tears
Have been cried
Just look into that beautiful blue
That beautiful blue, blue sky
And know too many tears, too many tears
Have been cried

My Prayer For You

A couple of weeks ago I heard this song while listening to one of my stations on Pandora.  The artist is Sandi Patty – and she is singing this on a family cruise.  Her husband and family happened to be in the audience that night and she dedicated the song to them.

The lyrics to this prayer are personal to her,  yet relate-able to all of us.  Sometimes I am overwhelmed with problems of the day.  Insecurities that would try to rob me of the tiniest of blessings.  I feel good one day, the next I’m faced with emotions that threaten to overcome me.  It is in times like these that this song is a comfort.  It is a solid reminder of the love of God in my life – even when I don’t feel it.  He is holding me, giving me peace and strength to go on.  Helping me to make good choices, to set myself apart from mediocrity and complacency.  And most of all – to learn to share with others and give my life away.

If you are like me and have those good and bad times, this is a great reminder of the love that God has for you.  Not just when you’re feeling up and things are going your way – but in the not so great times, when things are dark and foreboding.  When there seems like there is no help in sight – or anyone who understands.

This song is for you.

God Bless

 

 

That you would know the love of God
That you would grow to love his truth
Savor him and know that he is good

To know he dances over you
And that he finds delight in loving you
He made you he formed you for his own

I pray you’ll always keep the faith
And find your life in God alone
When darkness comes you’ll hide inside his love

Cause when the night takes over day
Jesus will always be your only way
His hand will calm the fears that cloud your soul

That you will give your life away
And that your hands will always share his tenderness
Your feet will walk the road that leads to peace
That you’d bring honor to his name
That you would know him well
And make him Lord

This is his plan; this is my prayer for you
This is his plan; this is my prayer for you
This is my prayer for you

Belong

This song by Chris Rice came on my Pandora Radio station today while I was getting ready for the day.  I’ve heard it before but this time it really grabbed me.  So much so I just knew I had to find it and post it.

I hope it speaks to you today.

God Bless

Words and Music by Chris Rice

Fading memories ignored
I crawl across the forest floor
Pool reflects an orphan child
Dirty, lost, alone and wild
Fatherless and nameless still
Fallen heart and broken, will
there ever be a place where I belong

I cower ‘neath the monster trees
And try to stand on tired feet
But gravity knocks me to the ground
Where I give up, and tears roll down
I claw the dust and beg the end
Curse the day that I began
to hope there’d be a place where I belong

I hear a sound I recognize
You lift my chin and seek my eyes
Song of love You sing to me
I ache to sing it back to Thee
“Father Love prepares a place
Brother Jesus leads the way
Follow to the place where you belong!”

How did I miss this wondrous song?
The forest sang it all along
“River rinses all your shame
Father offers you His name
Father Love prepares a home
Brother Jesus leads you on
Follow to the place where you belong!”

“Father Love prepares a place
Brother Jesus leads the way
Follow to the place where you belong
Follow to the place where you belong!”

You Won’t Let Go

You will LOVE this song!  Such a comfort for all of us who have ever struggled with faith, circumstances or change.  When we fix our mind on the “anchor for my soul” we can be assured that He will sustain us and never let go.  Powerful new song by Michael W. Smith.

Enjoy and God Bless

No shadow comes without the light making a way
No raging storm can ever defy one word of faith
My heart remains sure in the wind, sure in the waves

You are the anchor for my soul
You won’t let go
You won’t let go
No matter what may come I know
You won’t let go
You won’t let go

No valley low, changes the truth
So I’m not afraid
You hold me close
You lead me through and light up the way

Neither life, neither death,
The highest high, the deepest depth
Nothing can
Nothing can separate
Neither tears, neither trial
Certain as the sun will rise
Nothing can
Nothing can separate

My heart remains sure in the wind, sure in the waves, always

Brethren, We Have Met To Worship

I listened to a medley this morning in my bathroom while getting ready for the day.  Fernando Ortega came on my Pandora Radio station.  It was a medley of hymns – and this song was right in the middle of them.  I recognized it because for about a year we attended a United Methodist Church in Renton, WA.  This hymn was a favorite and I remembered it because of the beautiful melody.  Timeless with a gentle lilting motion, I think you will agree that it is soothing in a way that all great acoustic piano music is.  And in case you wanted to know what this hymn is all about – I have posted the lyrics below the video.

Enjoy and God Bless

“Brethren, We Have Met Together” is one of the oldest published American folk hymns. The lyrics were written by George Atkins and first published in 1819. The traditional tune, Holy Manna, is a pentatonic melody in Ionian mode originally published by William Moore in Columbian Harmony, a four-note shape-note tunebook, in 1829.[1] Like most shape-note songs from that century, it is usually written in three parts.  (Taken from Wikipedia)

Brethren, we have met to worship and adore the Lord our God;
Will you pray with all your power, while we try to preach the Word?
All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down;
Brethren, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Brethren, see poor sinners round you slumbering on the brink of woe;
Death is coming, hell is moving, can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers, and our children sinking down;
Brethren, pray and holy manna will be showered all around.

Sisters, will you join and help us? Moses’ sister aided him;
Will you help the trembling mourners who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior, tell them that He will be found;
Sisters, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Is there a trembling jailer, seeking grace, and filled with tears?
Is there here a weeping Mary, pouring forth a flood of tears?
Brethren, join your cries to help them; sisters, let your prayers abound;
Pray, Oh pray that holy manna may be scattered all around.

Let us love our God supremely, let us love each other, too;
Let us love and pray for sinners, till our God makes all things new.
Then He’ll call us home to heaven, at His table we’ll sit down;
Christ will gird Himself and serve us with sweet manna all around.

Furious

This morning we visited a local church.  This was the first song of the morning – and it made a lasting impression on me, I could not shake the lyric all through the morning session.  I knew I had to find it and post it.  I pray it will speak to you and bless you as well as you continue through your day.

 

God Bless

 


Furious:
By Jeremy Riddle

Nothing can tear us from
The grip of His mighty love
We’ve only glimpsed, His vast affection
Heard whispers of, His heart and passion
It’s pouring out…

His love is deep, His love is wide
And it covers us
His love is fierce, His love is strong
It is furious
His love is sweet, His love is wild
And it’s waking hearts to life

The Father loves and sends His son
The Son lays down His life for all
He lavishes His love upon us
He calls us now, His sons and daughters
He’s reaching out…

… and its waking hearts to life
He is waking hearts to life
He is waking hearts to life
