Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
–Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)

We love him, because he first loved us.
–1 John 4:19 (KJV)

1. We wanna be needed in this life,
Makin’ a living sacrifice.
We give in; we give up,
’cause we think that is love.
But He already paid the price.

Refrain:
He says you’ll never find another love like mine.
You can search the universe throughout eternal space and time.
You can choose it or refuse it,
But you’re never gonna lose it,
‘Cause I remain without forsaking you.
O I love you so that you can love me too.

2. We wish to grant their every whim,
Despite the pain we’re living in.
We give up; we give out
So they don’t go without.
But what we need really comes from Him.
Refrain:

3. I know exactly what I sing about,
‘Cause that’s the way I live it out.
I give out; I give way
To the Lord every day.
And I surrender the fear and doubt.
‘Cause
Refrain:

‘Cause there is no other love like mine.
You can search the universe throughout eternal space and time.
You can choose it or refuse it,
But you’re never gonna lose it,
‘Cause I remain without forsaking you.
O I love you so that you can love me too (3x).

Ice and Fire (Sonnet)

The water ever cold is freezing fast;
The ice is taking shape within my mind.
My moments flicker dim and slowly pass,
Engulfing all the warmth I cannot find.

But deep within my heart a fire burns;
I feel the ice inside commence to creek.
A tiny spark that starts a gentle churn,
And rippling strong my heart begins to beat.

I recognize the thawing of the Spring,
As nature gives the ice a knowing shove.
Now even winter stands to dance and sing;
She breathes upon the fire of hope and love.

In wisdom does she will and work so well;
Her fire springs from winter’s hardest hell.

Only in Your Presence that I Could

1. Every day I wake up breathing,
Thinking, knowing, hoping, being,
Every day I wake up me is good, so good.
Every moment I am living,
Praying, moving, doing, giving,
Every moment I’m believing in Your presence, Lord,
‘Cause it’s only in Your presence that I could.
Refrain:

2. Every day I wake up growing,
Seeking, feeling, healing, showing,
Every day I wake up Yours is good, so good.
Every moment I am learning,
Finding, seeing, freeing, turning,
Every moment I’m receiving in Your presence, Lord,
‘Cause it’s only in Your presence that I could.
Refrain: (2x)

Lord, it’s only in Your presence that I could.
It’s only in Your presence that I could.
Lord, it’s only in Your presence that I could.

Refrain:
O I know I couldn’t live without Your love,
And without the breath of inspiration sent from up above,
Your gentle peace and strength,
And Your amazing grace.
I need Your life to make mine any good,
‘Cause it’s only in Your presence that I could.

โ€œWhen a relationship stops working, it usually means that someone has grown.
Someone is now ready to receive more and have more than the relationship offers.
Someone is ready to be loved, honored, and treated the way they really want to be treated. Could that someone be you?โ€
