“On the surface not a ripple
Undercurrent wages war.
Quiet in the sanctuary
Sin is crouching at my door.
How can I be so prone to wander?
So prone to leave You?
So prone to die?
And how can You be so full of mercy?
You race to meet me and
bring be back to life.
I wake to find my soul in fragments,
Given to a thousand loves.
But only One will have no rival…
Hangs to heal me, spills His blood.
Curse-reversing Day of Jesus,
When You finally seize my soul…

Freedom from myself will be
The sweetest rest I’ve ever known.”
(Chris Rice)

I have yet to find the above song online, I have it on CD in my car presently. I hope to be able to post it… for it is simply beautiful!

Until then, below is an equally moving song, along the similar theme…


“He has formed me from the dust and to dust I shall return. He has made me in His light and to light I shall return. And I’ll be free at last… to lay it all down… and the sun will never rise again, for He will be my light. My heart will never, never, never break His heart again.” (2nd Chapter of Acts)

You live your life like a tornado.
Destruction follows everywhere you go.

And you have no plans to stop or slow.
I will not let this bitter root grow in me.
I will not let you leave that legacy,
But it gets so hard when pain is all I see.
And every time I find healing, you’re making a new mess,

And I am learning the real meaning of forgiveness.
And I tried to remove myself from your path,
But I keep on waking up in the aftermath.
So I pick up again and say I won’t look back.
And I will not let this bitter root grow in me.
I will not let you leave that legacy,
But this constant fight is breaking me.
And every time I find healing, you’re making a new mess,
And I am learning the real meaning of forgiveness.
And it hurts when you hit at the hearts of the ones I love;
When everything you touch is rubble and dust.

And it gets so hard to know how to trust,
But I will not let that bitter root grow.
I will not let it, no no.
But it gets so hard.
And every time I find healing you’re making a new mess,
And I am learning the real meaning of forgiveness.

(Lyrics by Sara Groves)

“They say Jesus is doing nothing
They say evolution took His place
There’s no God that created the world and
No Savior for the human race

They say God is powerless
He laughs aloud as we cry in pain
It’s just a part of his sick, sick humor
Forcing us to appreciate

[CHORUS:]
You say that God is dead but you’re rippin’ me off
You can’t infect my mind with your vanity
You say that God is dead but you’re rippin’ me off
You can’t infect my mind with your vanity
You’re rippin’ me off They say God doesn’t even exist
We made him up just to numb our pain
They can’t believe in a loving God
Who doesn’t believe in atheists

[CHORUS]

We take too much.”

With so much love and so many things to be grateful for… on this “day of love” — Valentine’s Day… How could I ask for more?

“There’s nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon
Waking to the sunlight, and being cradled by the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissing Mama’s face goodnight
Holding Daddy’s hand
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more

Running barefoot through the grass
A little hide and go seek
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat
Dancing in the dark, when there’s no one else around
Being bundled ‘neath the covers, watching snow
Fall to the ground
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more

So many things I thought would bring me happiness
Some dreams that are realities today
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that I’ve made along the way

So if there’s anything I’ve learned
From this journey I am on
Simple truths will keep you going
Simple love will keep you strong
Cause there are questions without answers
Flames that never die
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
So thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord
How could I ask for more.” (Cindy Morgan)

“The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.” Marianne Williamson

“Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again.
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just wont let me forget.

In this life
I know what I’ve been,
But here in your arms
I know what I am.

I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
‘Cause I’m forgiven.

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I wrestle with my pain, struggle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry.

When I don’t think and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ’cause I’m forgiven.”

(Sanctus Real)
