Everything

This song by Tim Hughes, “Everything”, has been running through my mind a lot this past week since I had heard it at church last Sunday.  There have been a lot of engagement announcements and babies being born lately.  I’m so excited for them, but there is always that thought, that want, that desire, in the back of my mind that surfaces.  “Why not me?”  However, the line that keeps coming back to me in this song is “God in my hoping, There in my dreaming, God in my watching , God in my waiting”.  It reminds me how God is in everything, even in my hopes, dreams and waiting.  Providing a peace and comfort to my soul.

EVERYTHING

by Tim Hughes

God in my living
There in my breathing
God in my waking
God in my sleeping

God in my resting
There in my working
God in my thinking
God in my speaking

Be my everything
Be my everything
Be my everything
Be my everything

God in my hoping
There in my dreaming
God in my watching
God in my waiting

God in my laughing
There in my weeping
God in my hurting
God in my healing

Christ in me
Christ in me
Christ in me the hope of glory
You are everything

Christ in me
Christ in me
Christ in me the hope of glory
Be my everything

“Crawl”

Crawl

How long will this take?
How much can I go through?
My heart, my soul aches
I don’t know what to do
I bend but don’t break
And somehow I’ll get through
’cause I have you

And if I have to crawl
Will you crawl too
I stumble and I fall
Carry me through
The wonder of it all
Is you
See me through

Oh Lord, where are you?
Do not forget me here
I cry in silence
Can you not see my tears?
When all have left me
And hope has disappeared
You find me here

And when I have to crawl
Will you crawl too
I stumble and I fall
Carry me through
The wonder of it all
Is you
See me through

When everything I was is lost
I have forgot where you have not
When I am lost you have not lost me(2x’s)

You have not lost me

And if I have to crawl
Will you crawl too
I stumble and I fall
Carry me through
The wonder of it all
Is you
See me through

It is Well with My Soul

I was talking with some good friends last night, and the subject came up about church worship music.  I was lamenting the fact that most churches tend to ignore good hymns in lieu of some of the modern and “contemporary” songs.  I do have to agree that most “modern” rendentions are very poorly done and I was really excited when I came across this YouTube video of one of my favorites.  The story behind “It is Well with My Soul” is heart-wrenching.  Horatio G. Spafford wrote this after losing his entire family to the sea, and he still had the faith to go on and trust in God.

It is Well with My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Refrain:
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Ever Be Enough — Sevenglory

I’ve wandered for so long
Seems like I’ve been down this road before
so alone and fading from the light
I feel your existence
Even now I have to close my eyes
Echoes in my head are feeding me lies
Send me fire from the sky
an angel from on high
My heart cries
Will I ever be enough?
Will I ever see the beauty that’s inside inside of me?
Will I ever be enough?
Will I ever see the way you see me?
I’m lost in emotion
Overtaken by my every breath
Finding strength I never knew I had
A promise
A let down
Back to where I did not know myself
You call to me. It must be someone else
For so long now
I’ve left the thought of gaining any promise of new life
I’m living in the shadows
I look away just long enough
To realize my life will never see tomorrow

4. Superchic(k): Stand in the Rain

I was chatting with a friend today and in our conversation I mentioned that I had started a blog.  The name reminded her of a song by Superchic(k) and when I listened to it, it really reminded me to that I need to stand when going through crazy stuff in life, otherwise I can drown in the rain of life.  Here’s the video and and lyrics:

**************

**************

Stand in the Rain

She never slows down.
She doesn’t know why but she knows that when she’s all alone, feels like its all coming down
She won’t turn around
The shadows are long and she fears if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

She won’t make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering if she stands she’ll fall down
She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything she’s running from wants to give up and lie down.

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
Stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day, whats lost can be found

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain
