Somewhere in the world at this very moment, there’s someone without their partner, there’s someone without their significant other, there’s someone without their sole-mate.

The life giving nourishment of water… sprinkled here, it emulates from man as the dry spring challenges the survival of nature. Inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless where would the world be without it?

Hope of the World

An unplugged version of a worship song written quite a few years ago and featured on ‘The Twelve’ album. It’s now getting an acoustic remake on the unreleased ‘Chapel Songs’ project.

So much has been written about mankind’s need for hope, and there’s never been a time when we didn’t need it. Scripture says, ‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.’ (Romans 15:13 ESV)

Lyrics:
Hope of the world
Shine on us
You are the Answer

Fill up our hearts, fill up our souls
Lure us away from all that’s wrong
Fill up our hearts, fill up our souls
Give us the strength to carry on

Here we stand, blessed with each new day
Here we stand, humbled works of clay

His Words Are Good

Listen carefully to my wisdom;
take to heart what I can teach you.
You’ll treasure its sweetness deep within;
you’ll give it bold expression in your speech.
~ Proverbs 22:17-18 MSG

I was inspired by these verses two years ago and composed this song. It took until this past February for it to see the light of day. And when it did, the light of day was being challenged by the darkness that surrounds our current season.

Our words and actions are dimmed when we rely on our own cleverness, but the Holy Spirit can bring clarity that’s crystal clear, it can strengthen emotions that are confused and fragile, and it can build up character to face the most imposing challenge.

Have I applied these words to my life? That’s a question I ask myself everyday because by nature I want to be in control and take care of my problems, my way! But that’s not how God’s plan is designed. There are many instances where he wants us to bring the issues to him, to allow him to handle the fears and doubts, to acknowledge that he is all loving, and all powerful God!

Friends, in these coming days I’d like to encourage you to allow God to drive, and to enjoy riding as we used to say, shotgun. Allow Him to handle the things that are out of your control (that’s called faith), and pray for the strength and wisdom to handle what’s within your realm. I say this because, His words are good!

Lyrics:
Incline your ear and listen closely
Rest assured his words are good
Apply your heart and know his knowledge
Walk in confidence his words are good

Keep them close; keep them within you
Rest assured his words are good
Keep them ready; on your lips
Walk in assurance his words are good

Listen up and hear the wisdom
Rest assured his words are good
Know his peace and understanding
Walk in freedom his words are good

Save Me (Don’t Let Me Go Under)

During this breath of time, we’re moving in uncharted waters. No one has ever sailed through such a time as this, and whether we like it or not our faith, or lack of, is being revealed to the world. The unknown is challenging our senses, it’s unearthing fears we never knew existed. Those fears are evolving anxiously anyway the wind blows, and they needn’t do that.

We should only worry about what we have control over. The things of life that are beyond our control are what we hand over in faith. I love the vision of Jesus with his hands out. He’s said not to have come with his hands in his pockets but reaching out to us to relieve us of such burdens.

A while back I was in the midst of a deep dive into Psalm 69. As is often the case for me, I was inspired to write and composed a song called Save Me. I’m offering it up today as an answered plea for help and guidance during this unfamiliar season.

There is always hope in the name of Jesus. There is always love in a benevolent God. And there is always faith for the heart that surrenders.

Quicksand underneath me
Swamp water rushing over me
Going down on the count of three
Save me

Bleary-eyed searching for the key
Raspy dry from my endless plea
Darkness surrounding my marquee
Save me

Save me
Don’t let me go under
Save me
O’ God of wonder

O’ heaven and earth praise him
The seas and everything that lives in them
I shout my love and thanks, amen
Saved I am
Saved I am
