Held (Natalie Grant)


Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling
Who told us we’d be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
Were asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it’s unfair

Chorus:

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

If hope if born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait, for one hour
Watching for our savior

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held
[Repeat Chorus]

There’s Something About The Song


If you are a music lover like me, you might pick few songs that you can sing your life with. There are songs that fit just right to our current mental and emotional state. Below are the songs that reflect much of my “innermost being.”

Beauty From Pain (Superchick)

Yeah, you read it right. It’s a sad song actually. There are emotions we choose to leave unsaid, silent in the dark. And then there’s hope. It’s like thinking out of circumstances you are into. It’s the hope that matters.

Superman

I bet you saw it coming. The song is like Warrior is a Child by Gary V. It’s the reality contrary to what people are seeing in us outwardly. No matter how tough we are, deep inside there’s something that longs to be just fine. My favorite line is “… looking for special things inside of me.”

Unwell

Not we’re getting depressed 🙂 It’s about getting tired of proving himself, saying that “it’s me! I don’t care whether you agree or not. it’s me!” There are times I’m taking comfort of listening to this song. It’s a realization that it’s not only me that feel that way. Well, I’m not crazy, i’m just a little unwell. 🙂

In The End

This ride is getting bumpy. Here’s for the people who are being unappreciated by the people around them. This one’s for us.

Wait and See

I featured this song in one of my posts. I’m so in love with this song, it reflects most of my early life struggling for my worth. You know what I mean.

Note: You may view the entire playlist here. This is a post on progress, feel free to check once in a while. Thanks!

Live For Today


 

Sittin’ in my room staring at the wall
Wonderin’ about the meaning of it all
Why is it this thing called life
Has got me goin’ crazy
So I open up your word and let it speak to me
The purpose and the plan that you’ve designed
Is clear to see, and I believe

Chorus:
I’m gonna live for today
I’m gonna follow in your way
I’m gonna let my little light shine
Like there’s no tomorrow
I won’t worry about the past
I know my future is intact
So I’ll choose to live my life one way
I’m gonna live it for today

You told me not to worry
About what lies ahead
So I am gonna focus on today instead
Making every moment count and counting
Every single blessing
I’m gonna set my mind on the
Here and the Now
This is what I want my life to be about
And this is How…

Let It All Out


Let it all out
get it all out
rip it out remove it
don’t be alarmed
when the wound begins to bleed

cause we’re so scared to find out
what this life’s all about
so scared we’re going to lose it
not knowing all along
that’s exactly what we need

and today I will trust you with the confidence
of a man who’s never known defeat
but tomorrow, upon hearing what I did
I will stare at you in disbelief
oh, inconsistent me
crying out for consistency

and you said I know that this will hurt
but if I don’t break your heart then things will just get worse
If the burden seems too much to bear
Remember
the end will justify the pain it took to get us there

and I’ll let it be known
at times I have shown
signs of all my weakness
but somewhere in me
there is strength

and you promise me
that you believe
in time I will defeat this
cause somewhere in me
there is strength

and today I will trust you with the confidence
of a man who’s never known defeat
and I’ll try my best to just forget
that that man isn’t me

reach out to me
make my heart brand new
every beat will be for you
for you

and I know you know
you touched my life
when you touched my heavy heart and made it light

Dive – (Steven Curtis Chapman)


 

The long-awaited rains have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
and carved their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah
My heart is racin’ and my knees are weak as I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice, it’s telling me it’s time to
Take the leap of faith
So here I go

I’m diving in
I’m going deep
In over my head I wanna be
Caught in the rush
Lost in the flow
In over my head I wanna go
The river’s deep
The river’s wide
The river’s water is alive
So sink or swim
I’m diving in
I’m diving in

There is a supernatural power in this mighty river’s flow
It can bring the dead to life, and it can fill an empty soul
And give a heart the only thing worth livin’ and worth dyin’ for, yeah
But we will never know the awesome power of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away into this holy flood
So if you’ll take my hand, we’ll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let’s go

This is How We Overcome


Your light broke through my night
Restored exceeding joy
Your grace fell like the rain
And made this desert live
Chorus:
You have turned my mourning into dancing
You have turned my sorrow into joy
Your hand lifted me up
I stand on higher ground
Your praise rose in my heart
And made this valley sing
(Chorus)
This is how we overcome
This is how we overcome
(Chorus)

Wait and See



I was born in Tennessee, late July humidity,

Doctors said I was lucky to be alive
I’ve been troubled since the day that I got here,
Troubled to the day I disappear
That’ll be the day that I finally get it right

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won’t forget,
All the plans HE’s made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet

I never really was that good in school;
Talked too much, broke the rules
My teachers thought I was a hopeless fool, all right.
I don’t know how but I made it through,
It’s one of those things you gotta do
I always had a knack for telling the truth.

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won’t forget,
All the plans HE’s made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet

Still wonderin’ why I’m here.
Still wrestling with my fear
But oh… HE’s up to something,
And the farther out I go,
I’ve seen enough to know
That I’m not here for nothin’…
He’s up to somethin’.

So now’s my time to be a man,
Follow my heart as far as I can
No tellin’ where I’m ending up tonight
I never slow down (or so it seems),
But singing my heart is one of my dreams
All I gotta do is hold on tight.

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won’t forget,
All the plans HE’s made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet

GOD, teach me to trust You
Teach me to follow You
Teach me about You
GOD, bless us
GOD, lead us

Lord of Lords


Beholding your beauty is all I long for
To worship You Jesus is my soul’s desire
For this very heart you have shaped for your pleasure
purposed to lift your name high

Hear and surrender in pure adoration
I enter your courts with an offering of praise
I am Your servant come to bring you glory
As is fit for the work of your hands

Chorus:
Now unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
All of creation resounds with the song
Worship and praise him the Lord of Lords

Verse 2:
The spirit now living and dwelling within me
Keep my eyes fixed ever upon Jesus’ face
Let not the things of this world ever sway me
I’ll run ’till I finish the race

Chorus 2:
Singing unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
All of creation resounds with the song
Worship and praise the Lord
Now unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
All of eternity echoes the song
Worship and praise him the Lord of Lords

Bridge:
Holy Lord
You are Holy
Jesus Christ is the Lord

Chorus 3:
Now unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
Call all the saints to join in the song
Worship and praise him the Lord of Lords

Through It All…


You are forever in my life
You see me through the seasons
Cover me with Your hand
And lead me in Your righteousness

And I look to You
And I wait on You

I’ll sing to You, Lord
A hymn of love
For Your faithfulness to me
I’m carried in everlasting arms
You’ll never let me go
Through it all

Slow Fade – Casting Crowns


Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you’re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see

Heart of Worship (Matt Redman)


 John 4:23

“But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

This song became an all-time favourite of Christians. The message of the song is all about worshipping God from the heart. Sometimes the Sunday service is becoming so familiarized and so formal/casual that we tend to focus on how flawless and how skillful they play with the instruments and they sing songs.

This song touches every heart of a believer whether you are on-fire Christian (as you should have to) or a Christian who grew cold. In Christ, we worship for Him. It’s all about Him.

 

We are serving a living God. And since He’s real, we must be so real before Him. God desires true worshippers. He can’t afford to look at second-rated acdt of worship. Whenever we worship the King, be on our best! Give your all! After all, He gave us everything we have and everything we are right now. Mostly, we worship Him because we love Him, not out of fear of judgment, but out of reverence.

Unless we worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, we can;t have this heart of worship. Desire this night and day. Meditate on His Word. And when he given that heart to us, let’s nurture it day by day. Let’s draw closer to the Throne. For in Him alone we can truly be safe and have a peaceful, meaningful life on earth – a life worthy of His praise.

 Lyrics:

When the music fades
And all is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless your heart
I’ll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the ways things appear
You’re looking into my heart

 

 

Chorus:
I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You, all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry Lord for the things I’ve made it
When it’s all about You, It’s all about You Jesus
King of endless worth
No one could express
How much You deserve
Though I’m weak and poor
All I have is Yours
Every single breath

I’ll bring You more than just a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You
All about You, Jesus
I’m sorry Lord for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You
It’s all about You Jesus

Its all about you
Jesus
