Inside of you…

I found this song that I used to listen to ages ago, and as I pondered upon it, I thought of how true the words are. So many lies are thrown at us “you can’t do this or that”, but we were made to shine! May God help us to be the people He made us to be. Amen!

 

INSIDE OF YOU

As a child you used to dream
There wasn’t anything that you couldn’t do
Learn to fly on paper wings
But somebody told you dreams don’t come true
Some settle for a lie and take it
And try to keep their hearts from breakin’
But you defy the odds
And make it worth the going through

Oh, inside of you there’s a heart full of dreams
Like the gold in a stream to be uncovered
Inside of you lies a soul made to shine
Yes, a child meant to fly and discover
All the wonders God can do
Inside of you

Every day you face the fear
With a measure of faith that you need
And even now all heaven cheers
For the miracle you’re destined to be
True bravery is bought with sorrow
Life is but a gift we borrow
And all the promise of tomorrow waits to be revealed

Where dreams can still come true
All the wonders God can do
Inside of you

My Light

Even when the steps ahead are blurred

The road is dark and my torch flickering

Light of the world, I know You will lead

 

Even when the enemy whisper in my ears

And deafen me with condemnations

You are not worth the cost of His blood

You are not worth the price

For this very reason, I know Christ died

 

Even when my heart is confused

Trying to find a breakthrough

By attempting to figure out

The meaning of this life

And what I’m supposed to be

Here I am to live for His glory

 

Even when questions linger on my mind

When the answers seem mysteries to find

I know one thing today

Though He died for my sins

That old, wretched, blood stained cross

Is the reason of my existence

 

Even when my identity is just on a card

And my sense of belonging has been gone far

Feeling so out of place in this foreign land

Now I found a place to hide

A sanctuary for my soul to abide 

 

Now He lives, the King of Kings

Seated on the throne

To lead His children home

I don’t deserve it at all

But to His free gift of grace to say no?

Is foolishness, as though I can please Him on my own

 

Jesus will lead the way, oh yes He will

To those who trust Him

No matter how deaf or blind

No matter how slow or fast the steps

Willingness of a broken heart is all He asks. 

 

 

Crucified Man

This amazing song by Graham Kendrick summarizes very well the events of Good Friday and our place in it. ❤

My favourite part of the song is: 

“I believe as they beat on His beautiful face
He turned a torturer’s chair to an altar of grace
Where the worst we can do met the best that God does
Where unspeakable hate met the gaze
Of unstoppable love
At the crux of it all there He hangs
I’ve placed my hope in a crucified Man”

All Glory to Him

Romans 11 33-36

 

Reading this passage gave me an absolute confidence in the God that we serve. No matter what the situation is, we can be rest assured that all things are from Him, through Him and for Him, so if not anything else, for the sake of the glory of His name, He will guide us and supply all our needs. Above all, since we are His children, His love for us is deeper than the sea and higher than the sky above. 🙂

 

Be Thou my vision

living water

we search for wells to satisfy us

only to find ourselves thirst again

run to the shower in our bathtub

when we can be cleansed in His rain

look for peace in the tiny streams the world offers

when His everlasting water fall is sufficient to heal our pain

 

should the people of God run away

from the very name that signifies their sonship? – CHRISTian

do we not often neglect why we are here?

when Him turns to me and His to mine

when we decide to take charge of our minds

forgetting that i was crucified with Christ 

and this life i now live is no longer mine

 

let us hold fast to His grace so we can shine

like the sun in the day and the stars at night

that our cups may overflow and flood all around

let the cross never depart from before our eyes

that the world may see we are the temple of the Holy One!

 

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” – Galatians.2:20
