Song: Once more

1
God renew in me
The faith I’ve taken for granted
May I once more see
Deep truths you once have planted

2.
Days pass me by
So self centered and jaded
Content with a lie
My passion in You has faded

CHORUS
Lord, reveal to me once more
Your sweet love unending
Your mercy beyond understanding
Your grace never failing
Your wisdom beyond comprehending

3.
No longer I hide
My heart hears your calling
I open my door wide
Eager hearing your knocking

4.
Create in me
A new heart full of passion
And awake in me
Your love full of compassion

CHORUS
Lord, reveal to me once more
Your sweet love unending
Your mercy beyond understanding
Your grace never failing
Your wisdom beyond comprehending

5.
Forgive my sin
Untether my faith in you
Deep within
Rebirth my spirit anew

6.
I give You all glory
For a life that once was wasted
Write a new story
One Your pure will makes sacred

CHORUS
Reveal through me once more
Your sweet love unending
Your mercy beyond understanding
Your grace never failing
Your wisdom beyond comprehending

Purposeless

We grow up looking at screens
Where we see
The lie we are to be
Mighty heroes special and adored

Great life of noble purpose
An awesome hero!
Can you hear it yo?
Everyone wants to be you

It’s infecting our faith
We blend it
We bend it
We desire to be God’s heroes

Is that what God wants you to be?
Or just a delusion?
Your own resolution?
Not content with who you are?

God doesn’t need a hero
Just real you
Only true you
Messed up like you are right now

There is only one purpose
To simply be
For all eternity
For Christ With Christ In Christ

This is the reality that changes
You and me!
Can’t you see?
To be part of God’s reality

To be purposeless yet
In timeless love
With God above
Your life transformed by His grace

P.S.

This troubled world has but one hero
Christ is His name.
Cross is His fame.
Praise be to God forever and ever amen!

Life not taken for granted

Great suffering labours and births a noble purpose
Pure joy discovered under pain’s grim surface
Deep loneliness awakens lost passions and love
Green valleys are best seen from high above
We are as single breath in the vastness of space
Our life but a gift of a timeless creator’s grace
Oh the bitter sweet taste of life not taken for granted
Only an ignorant fool would not have wanted it

The Joy of Today

There is a time when we start to grow old
We realize the value of every little moment
Either reflect with regret what came to pass
Or embrace with joy what the future holds

For those of us filled with regret I say this
All your bitterness will not change the past
Let go and forgive and leave it all behind
And live this beautiful today to its fullest

For at the end we all finish the same way
And life already has so much toil and pain
No need to create more of it ourselves

Find joy in the gift that is your life today

God is my constant

Life passes far too quickly
Learning to embrace changes it brings
Nothing stays the same it seems

Not even we ourselves are the same
Nor our family nor spouses nor friends
Life or death, change never ends

There is no anchor but God
The only constant unchanging
The source of love never ending

With me always

From old books to new
One thing always held true
You are with me always
No matter of my ways
You will not stop loving me
Never lonely will I have to be

From this world into another
You will always be my father
Not time nor even my death
When taking my final breath
I know you will hold my hand
Lead me pass this life’s end

And on this single foundation
I face life’s confrontations
With nothing to fear any longer
In you I am truly stronger
Trusting you to lead my life
In both joy and strife

Delusions of Insignificance

What is our life’s true meaning?
What is our story from the beginning?
We seek more then cameos in a small forgotten play
More than a butterfly effect of things we do and say
We seek a legacy of glorious grander
Of heroism in midst of terrifying danger

But this story isn’t ours.
Not our stage nor our hour
God weaves His message in tapestry of time
And in it we are woven as threads so fine
Our stories woven same as Paul or Job or Cain
All showing God’s glorious love all the same

Would God in His wisdom so divine
Created insignificance or something benign
Then die for it on the cross for all history to see
To give true purpose and to set you completely free
So see your purpose not as the world does
See it in your creator’s loving eyes

Song: Unravelled

Running out of dreams
Few worked out it seems
Desperate
Unresolved
Unravelled

Lord unravel me
Till you find my core my soul
Make me whole again
Fill me with new hope

Fighting demons of my past
Escaping regrets doesn’t last
Remorseful
Guilty
Haunted

Lord unravel me
Till you find my core my soul
Make me whole again
Let forgiveness rain

Fearing what tomorrow brings
Body falling breaking seams
Evanescing
Frail
Alone

Lord unravel me
Till you find my core my soul
Make me whole again
Heal my body and faith

Restored I now stand
Not fearing the end
Forgiven
In faith
Loved

Lord unravelled me
Restored my core my soul
Made me whole again
And I praise you Lord

Two mannas

Living dollar by dollar and day by day
With little as safety for what comes tomorrow
Reliant on God and living in faith
Finding God’s joy in the presence of sorrow

I wonder why Christ in His mighty grace
Does not provide us with dreams of this world
So everyday I must seek his holy face
To live another day till I grow very old

And when I compare my tired long life
To ancient saints living on a barren land
It was this dependance that grew their faith
And tested it with scorching dry sand

And what would befall without such a trial
The ancient saints would remain as slaves
To life of corruption, pride, and God denial
We too may as well dig our graves

Yet you have prevented such a fall
You have provided till the very end
Manna as food to nourish them all
Manna as faith of your sovereign hand
