Love Me Too

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).

Listen for the sound of an African grey parrot in this recording. 🙂

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.

Forgiveness 490

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

I pray you end this year with forgiveness. Extend God-guided forgiveness to anyone you feel has hurt you, for your own sake, knowing that God has forgiven you. And above all, forgive yourself for all past mistakes, so you can begin the New Year, and each moment with a clean slate – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I wish you all the best in 2018, and no matter what this year holds, may you seek and find the Presence and Power of God within you!

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.*
–Matthew 18:21-22 (KJV)

Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
–Matthew 7:1-2 (KJV)

*70×7 = 490

Forgiveness 490 – Lyrics

Refrain:
[So] 490 times isn’t too tough,
Forgiving ourselves and each other for stuff.
Never forget all the sins He forgave,
To love and to keep every child that He made.
And 490 times isn’t a strain,
‘Cause we are forgiven again and again and again.

1. The number of stars in the heavens,
And each bless-ed moment we’re livin’,
The total of tears
Through laughter and fears,
That’s how many times we’re forgiven.
Refrain:

2. No human mind and emotions
Can demonstrate such a devotion.
But held in His grace
With our limits erased,
We forgive as deep as the ocean.
Refrain:

3. The tools that we’re using to measure
The worth here on earth of our treasure,
If they never budge,
That’s how we’ll be judged.
We forgive so we live in His pleasure.
Refrain:

Did They Pray? (Shepherd Song)

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Advent 2017 week 4.

On this Christmas Eve, I offer a song about the shepherds. The Good News was not brought to government officials, rich people, or anyone in power. It was brought to simple, humble folks who in faith, believed what they heard. May we be as the shepherds, not only believing the tidings of Christ’s birth, but truly taking them to heart and living each day for God’s glory. I wish you a blessed Christmas celebration and a joy-full New Year made possible by the Spirit within you!

Luke 2:8-20 (KJV)

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Did They Pray? (Shepherd Song) – Lyrics

1. The shepherds heard the good news first.
Why do you think that could be?
Late at night with the moon for light,
Watching over their sheep,
Did they pray? (4x)

2. The angel came, and so afraid,
The shepherds wondered why.
But Christ the Lord, this day is born,
The Savior of mankind.
Did they pray? (4x)

3. When they heard the joyous word,
They believed what it said.
And making haste to Christ’s birthplace,
They found His manger bed.
Did they pray? (4x)

4. Now we have known and heard and shown
The glory of our God.
So with that sweet humility,
Let us take the path the shepherds trod.
Let us pray. (8x)

For Aaron.

Advent 2017 week 2.

1. I heard a baby’s laughter as a child;
I wondered why it made my heart so light.
But as I grew I came to realize,
A baby is an angel come to life.
Refrain:

2. I had a little baby of my own,
So humbled by the miracle of birth.
But he was more than just my precious son,
An angel sent to teach me love on earth.
Refrain:

3. Another living, tender baby boy
Who came to us so many years ago
Still fills our open hearts with peace and joy;
He warms this world that suffers in the cold.
Refrain:

OOO keep our Savior cradled in your heart (2x).

Refrain:
That little ray of hope and faith,
Of purity and love,
The joy that nothing can replace,
A blessing from above.
No matter what the future holds,
The present is the start,
So keep this baby cradled in your heart.
