Merry Christmas! // God Will Give Strength

by Grace 26. December 2017 18:39

Merry Christmas Everyone!

A day late...

I hope you all had a blessed day! 

And while I'm here... (:

 

God Will Give Strength

Chorus 1: God will give me the strength to go on

God will give me the strength to go on

When it seems there is no way

Night will turn to day

God will give me the strength to go on

 

Verse 1: I'm struggling to answer Gods call

The load is so heavy and I stagger 'neath it all

My feet and heart are weary

And my spirit is so low

But God is here with me and I know

That (Chorus 1)

 

Verse 2: Perhaps you're struggling like I've been

You have lost all hope that you could possibly win

Keep your head up weary pilgrim

Wear a smile and sing a song

You will find the courage before long

For...

Chorus 2: God will give you the strength to go on

God will give you the strength to go on

When it seems there is no way

Night will turn to day

God will give you the strength to go on

 

Now let's hear from you!

How was your Christmas? What were your highlights of the day? Did you like the song?

Looking Higher, Reaching Farther

by Grace 19. December 2017 10:26

Hello everyone!

You don't mind if I post songs that have nothing to do with Christmas during the Christmas season, do you?

If you answered no to that question, then good. If you answered that you do mind, don't look at this post until Christmas is past and you'll never know I posted it during the Christmas season unless you read this part of the post or look at the date on the top.

Here's a song I wrote recently (oh, by the way, if you couldn't tell already, it's not a Christmas song). I haven't completely decided what order I want the verses to be in, but I'm thinking this is probably how I'll keep it. Hope you enjoy!

 

Looking Higher, Reaching Farther

Chorus: I'm looking higher, I'm reaching farther,

I want what's better, I want what's best

And so I'll stand uncompromising

Whenever I'm put to the test

So I'll keep walking on the narrow and straight

I'll be watching, and I will wait

I'm looking higher, I'm reaching farther

Than this world could ever dream

 

Verse 1: I'm not defined by what others say

Or by the standards of the day

I am defined by my faith in Jesus

And what he's done for all of us

 

Verse 2: I will not settle for the first man

Who says he loves me and asks for my hand

I'm waiting for the one God has chosen

I'm waiting for a godly man

 

Verse 3: When I am ever tempted to fear

I will remember that the Lord is near

I'll trust in Him; I'll fear no evil

For everything's in God's control

 

Verse 4: I won't judge my worth by how I feel

'Cause what I feel often isn't real

I get my worth in Christ alone

The greatest status ever known

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you like the song? What did you think about the order of the verses? Did you have a favorite verse? Were you irritated that I posted something that wasn't Christmas-related during the Christmas season? If so, I don't really want to know...

Song Suggestion: Thankful

by Grace 24. November 2017 17:48

Hey everyone!

Here's a song for the Thanksgiving season! It has a little mix of bluegrass and southern gospel. I've not been too impressed with some of this group's more recent songs (a little too modern for my taste) but I did like this song. The track for this song kind of makes me think of the Bontragers a little bit (I posted a link to their song "I Have Been Blessed" a few weeks ago).

Well, anywho, let me know what you think of this song!

Thankful

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you like the song? What are you thankful for? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Our Lives are Passing Times

by Grace 7. November 2017 10:42

Hey everyone! Today I finally have some of my own inspiration to share with you! 

Let me know what you think!

 

Our Lives are Passing Times

The years are flying quickly by,

And time is flying fast;

And someday that is coming soon,

Our lives here will be past.

What have we done with what we have

To make our lives worthwhile?

Have we reached out to troubled souls?

Or giv'n the world a smile?

God's given so abundantly,

More than we'll ever know;

The least that we can do for Him

Is His great love to show.

Our lives are spent most selfishly-

In gaining for our pleasure,

And though things we get or want aren't 'bad',

It's all just earthly treasure.

And while we're  spending all our time

Enjoying what we've got,

We forget the ones who really

Haven't got an awful lot.

God's given so abundantly!

The least that we can do

Is to reach out with what we've got

to help a soul or two.

It isn't truly thankfulness

To hide with all our stuff,

And then ignore the ones

Who haven't near enough.

We would not have anything

If it weren't bestowed by God,

So we should help the weary souls

Who harder paths now trod.

You can't bring earthly things to heav'n,

And soon I'm sure you'll find,

It matters not what we'll bring with us

But what we'll leave behind.

 

And hey, just for the fun of it, if you can tell what rhyme scheme I used, comment below and let me know! Perhaps I'll do a post on rhyme scheme soon.

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you like the poem? Any suggestions on how to make it better???

Patience my Child

by Grace 7. August 2017 21:45

Hey all! I'm back! Fire off the cannons!!!

Here's a song that I wrote recently. This is something God's been telling me a lot recently! If I have my way, this will eventually make it onto our CD, but my way doesn't always happen in circumstances like these... Oh well. We'll see what happens. At any rate, here it is and let me know what you think!

Patience My Child

CHORUS: Patience, patience my child

Patience, patience my child

I have the answer

And remember

That I'll not forget your name,

Patience, patience my child

 

VERSE 1: I was wrestling through a struggle

So I lifted it in prayer

And I waited for a while

But my prayer for this trial

Didn't seem to have an answer

I great despair I asked Him

If He had heard my cry

He smiled at me, and this was His reply

(Chorus)

VERSE 2: When you're faced with life's decisions

And you ask God what to do

But it seems the Lord above

Who's always looking down in love

Wasn't looking down at you!

Stop fretting for a moment

Know that He will make a way

If you listen close, you will hear Him say

(Chorus)

 

Now let's hear from you!

 

Did you enjoy this poem? Is God currently teaching you this lesson too?

When Life is...

by Grace 26. July 2017 18:24

Hey all! Sorry I've been gone so long. Life got a hold and wouldn't let go! I wrote this today on the whim. Let me know what you think!

 

When Life Is...

When life is a smog that I can't see through,
Help me to lean more heavily on you
When life is misty with tears from a loss
Help me to trust you, not count you as the cause
When life is hot and I'm full of pride
Help me to step down and let you decide
When life is cold with rigid fear
Help me remember you're always near

Help me remember you're the Author of Life
And that you're in control through joy and strife.

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you enjoy this poem? Are you in any of these areas of life right now? Have any title suggestions? My title wasn't to good... Do you think I portrayed my theme of "Pointing Life back to God" well? Did you miss my presence in the blogosphere?Wink

P.S. Keep a lookout for the new page on the sidebar that's coming soon!! Smile

The Blessed, Holy Trinity!

by Grace 7. July 2017 23:45

Hey everyone! It feels to me that it's been a while since I've posted anything! I guess it probably hasn't been too long though. ;)

The Trinity is a very beautiful thing to me. We've been learning a lot about this recently in church, and that's what inspired me to write this poem. I hadn't realized how amazing and inspiring the Trinity was until about a month ago. I mean, of course, I've always known God is three in one and that is the Trinity and that God is absolutely pure and holy, but I didn't know the depth of His beauty was until I had heard more on the Trinity.

Without further ado, here's the poem!

 

The Blessed, Holy Trinity

The sacred, divine Trinity

A holy doctrine unto me

Three in one

One in three

The Blessed, Holy Trinity.

 

This awe-inspiring Trinity

Together saves and blesses me

The Father, Son

And Spirit be

The Blessed, Holy Trinity.

 

The sacred, lovely Trinity;

It reaches down to you and me.

We don’t deserve

This grace of thee

The Blessed, Holy Trinity.

 

The Son has died for you and me

The Father blesses me and thee

The Holy Spirit

Dwells in me

The Blessed, Holy Trinity.

 

Because God is the three in one

Of disagreements, there are none.

The harmony!

The Unity!

The Blessed, Holy Trinity!

 

This Unity, this Trinity

Is very beautiful to me

I overflow

With praise of thee

The Blessed, Holy Trinity!

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you enjoy this poem? Have you ever realized how amazing the Trinity is?
