This Is The Song I Was Talking About. . .

I don’t have much to say right now…my life is kind of just floating along.  Have you ever been in a place where you just don’t know what to think about, dream about or pray about?  Although I don’t have much trouble in knowing what to pray for minute by minute, I am talking of more to do with my future…you know like making plans? Vacations, more education, self improvement like getting in shape or saving money, etc.  I just can’t get focused on any of those things, I am very hesitant to do so.  I want to because I don’t like not having anything to look forward to.  I used to be good at making plans but not any more…to many times the plans fall through.  I am just in the here and now…the good news is I am not looking back too much any more.  I think this is a good thing!  

I guess I would describe it like this…I am sitting on the beach, watching the ocean roll in, small waves, one after another falling onto the shore…no thoughts in my head, time does not matter and I have no where to be.  Maybe this is what they call daydreaming….Smile
Oh yes and Jesus is sitting next to me in silence!

New Song: What Do I know Of Holy?

You know I love music and the way that the Holy Spirit speaks to me through the words and melody.  I have shared a few with you before but this one is by far one of the most beautiful I have heard. I heard this song Monday morning for the first time and looked all day for it on Tuesday because I didn’t catch the artist name, so today I called the radio station and they told me it was on a newly released album by Addison Road.  I can not tell you how the words touched me.  I have stood in this place a time or two….and it kind of reminds me of the questions that Job asked in the verses that Greg @ Greg’s Blog Pad has been discussing.  I have spoken with several people who say to me, "I believe there is a God."  My next question is "Do you know Him?" Regardless of the answer there is more in that question than seems…believing in God is very different than knowing Him.  Believing in God is very different than believing God.  It is completely taking Him at His word. In reading the words to this song I realize that even knowing Him is very different than experiencing His holiness.  He is Holy. I know He is sovereign through the experiences He has allowed into my life.  How do we know His holiness?  Exactly what do we know of Holy?  What do I know of Holy?  I could not find a link to post it on my Project Playlist player, it is not yet available so I have given instructions to link below so that you can listen to it….enjoy!

What Do I Know Of Holy?
by
Addison Road

I made You promises a thousand times

I tried to hear from Heaven


But I talked the whole time


I think I made You too small


I never feared You at all No


If You touched my face would I know You?


Looked into my eyes could I behold You?




(CHORUS)


What do I know of You


Who spoke me into motion?


Where have I even stood


But the shore along Your ocean?


Are You fire? Are You fury?


Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?


What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

I guess I thought that I had figured You out

I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about


How You were mighty to save


Those were only empty words on a page


Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be


The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees




(CHORUS)


What do I know of You


Who spoke me into motion?


Where have I even stood


But the shore along Your ocean?


Are You fire? Are You fury?


Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?


What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

(CHORUS 2)

What do I know of Holy?


What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?


And a God who gave life "its" name?


What do I know of Holy?


Of the One who the angels praise?


All creation knows Your name


On earth and heaven above


What do I know of this love?

Photobucket

(CHORUS)
What do I know of You

Who spoke me into motion?


Where have I even stood


But the shore along Your ocean?


Are You fire? Are You fury?


Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?


What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

 



What do I know of Holy?


What do I know of Holy?

How Many Kings

You all know how I love music and the lyrics to the songs that touch my heart. Our Christian radio station, KSBJ Christian Radio Station, is playing continuous Christmas music from Thanksgiving to New Years(you can listen on your computer). I love it…so many memories in many of the songs. They have been playing this song the last couple of days and last night during my commute home I listened to the words for the first time. It was so very powerful and soooo much truth in every line! I have added it to my Project Playlist and I hope you take a minute to listen to it.

How Many Kings

by DOWNHERE

 

Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe after all we’ve projected
A child in a manger

Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mothers shawl
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?

Cause how many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn savior
All that we have whether costly or meek
Because we believe
Gold for his honor and frankincense for his pleasure
And myrrh for the cross he’ll suffer
Do you believe, is this who we’ve waited for?
It’s who we’ve waited for

How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only one did that for me

All for me
All for you
All for me
All for you

 

New Song: Give Me Your Eyes by Brandon Heath

Tearful Encounter

 
 
I have been hearing this song on the radio for the last couple of weeks and the more I listen to it, the more I have made it my prayer…God is opening new doors for me and it has been exciting…partly because I knew once I surrendered to Him in certain areas of my life He would do "great and mighty" things…as I told Greg (Blog Quest) instead of being amazed at the things He does I am "delighted". FYI to my last blog entry…I have lost 12 lbs since last Wednesday and have began my daily exercise…at the same time my mind seems to be renewed and refreshed.  I am believing God for the rest on my list!
 
I hope that you are able to to hear my music player because the first song playing is the one below. It may not be your type of music but the words are awesome! May God give us all "eyes to see" those around us in need of the Savior!!!!!
Grace to you

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black tile
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
Are those people going somewhere?
Why have I never cared?

Chorus:
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me your heart for the once forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see
yeah
yeah
yeah
yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide whats underneath
Theres a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
To ashamed to tell his wife
He’s out of work
He’s buying time
Are those people going somewhere?
Why have I never cared?

Chorus

Ive Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all alone
