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).

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)

Virtuous Woman

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

Proverbs 31:10-13, 20, 25-31 (NIV)

Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.

Virtuous Woman – Lyrics

Refrain:
Lord, make me a virtuous woman,
Hard-working, caring, and kind,
Keeping a home for my family,
And living Your design.

1. Give me the talent to make
All that my hands can supply.
Grant me the Spirit to manage it well
And bring my husband pride.
Refrain:

2. Cooking and planting to grow,
Nurturing children and seeds.
Lord, may I be a good wife to my husband
And gladly meet his needs.
Refrain:

3. May I have extra to share
And be giving and humble and meek.
For in this way I inherit the kingdom
And make my life complete.
Refrain:

Lord, make me a virtuous woman
Who is living Your design!

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
–Luke 12:6-7 (NIV)

Refrain:
[You’re] too right to be left, you know.
God doesn’t let you here to let you go.
The One who made you one made it so
You’re too right to be left.
Baby, you’re too right to be left.

If I can ask one thing, I ask to live the Truth.

Love Alone Is Real

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

And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three. But the greatest of these is love.*

1. Faith is the stuff of things that you want,
But right now you cannot see.
And faith is the seed that lets you believe
When you ask you will receive.
But whoever would say you only need faith
Is just giving you part of the deal.

Refrain:
The angels rejoice at hearing the voice
Of our Father ever near.
Our God above is a God of love,
Because love alone is real.

2. Hope is the spark that lights up the dark
As it kindles in your soul.
And hope is the thing with feathers that sings,**
And it never stops at all.**
But whoever would say that hope is the Way
Is just giving you part of the deal.
Refrain:

3. Love isn’t blind. It chooses to find
What is good and leave the rest.
And love isn’t dumb. It lets you become
All you could to be your best.
And whoever would say that love’s a cliche
Is just giving you part of the deal.
Refrain: (Twice)

Love alone is real (2x).

* 1 Cor. 13:13 (NASB)

** Paraphrase from
Emily Dickinson.
