Two Hands Jars of Clay

I love this song almost as much as I love the message it has, makes me think about what I'm doing for the people who are outside my little world of experience and if I could be doing more..hopefully it stirs the same thoughts in you, and maybe it will stir some action out of us too


Arms that Hold

Here's a song I'm working on, not done yet but I thought I would share what I have so far

Here I am before your throne, broken on my knees
Struggling to see through the dark
I'm waiting here I'm calling out to the God of my second chances
Lift me up and reconcile my heart

Set my heart on fire let my life proclaim that you alone are King
Lift my spirit higher let those around me see that I have been set free

And yours is the voice that speaks through all creation, you're the maker and the author of all time
And yours are the arms that hold the world together, they're the arms that are holding me tonight


In All Things

So, life has been amazing to me so far. I have a decent paying job, that kinda sucks sometimes but hey it pays the bills and that's what matters. I have an amazing girlfriend who's enormous and beautiful heart is totally sold out to God. I have awesome friends I can rely on and who know they can rely on me. Life is great, so this got me thinking, how often do we get into the flow of things going really well for us and forget who made things the way they are? Got me thinking that sometimes maybe it can be even harder to remember God when everything is good, than when everything is bad. It's easy to remember God when things are going downhill in a hurry, easy to say where are you? why did you let this happen? why aren't you helping? Why do we so easily call out to our Maker when our chips are down but never remember to thank Him when we have everything we need? I know I'm guilty of this, are you? I guess this is a challenge of sorts, a challenge to my fellow followers of Christ to remember to be thankful and humbly follow God ANYWHERE He leads us, and not just praise Him when things are good, but when they're bad too, and not just ask for His help when our lives are down, but to ask Him to show us opportunities to share our own goodness with others who aren't feeling so blessed. May you come to see that the God of strength is everywhere, and may you come to praise Him and live in worship, in all things.
