An old classic:One day on the way home from church a little girl turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the preacher's sermon this morning confused me." The mother said, "Oh! Why is that? The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?" "Yes, that's true," the mother replied. "He also said that God lives within us. Is that true too?" Again the mother replied, "Yes." "Well," said the girl. "If God is bigger than us and he lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"
I wanted to share some lyrics from a few of my daughter's songs. Unfortunately you won't know the tune or hear the guitar...(maybe one day :)She gave us a little concert the other night to show us all the different songs she had and I was suddenly blown away by the DEEPNESS and SIMPLICITY of her words and that most adults to not get this deep in their own Christian life.You can see from her words that she is seeking to find her place- the place that the Lord has for her in this world- and that it is totally up to Him. I pray that as she continues in her music that it will pierce the hearts of many.[b]I Come Before You[/b]Take my thoughts, take my wantsThey are not my own, they are not my ownI come before You nowLaying all that I am, all that I have.. before YouTake my dreams, take my desiresThey are not my own, they are not my ownI come before You nowLaying all that I am, all that I have.. before You[b]My All in All[/b]Why am I wanting the things of this worldWhat I am wanting is not what I needBecause all I need is YouAll I need is You, aloneYou are my All in AllYou are the One that I needYou are the One I hold ontoMy All in All...The things I hold to- I let em goAnd I am wanting You with all that I amBecause, You are my All in All...[b]Prepare a Work In Me[/b]Feeling like a grain of sandThe wind blows me to and froWhat am I to doWhere am I to go refrainI open up my heartAnd You open up Your handAnd I hold on..I hold onPrepare a work in mePrepare a work in meMay your will be done through meMay your will be done through meFeeling like...repeat refrain[b]Coming Clean[/b]You shine down upon my heartYou show me who I really amPlease let me not become deceivedI'm coming clean before the LordBefore the Lord I am coming cleanYou show me what a pure heart isI cast my troubles on YouI'm coming clean before the LordBefore the Lord I am coming clean[b]Need You[/b]Coming out of my shellTrying to make it on my ownAnd I find that it's not easyI need a bit of guidanceAnd it's now that I see YouAnd it's not that I feel YouAnd it's now that I need You--I need You like the mornin' sunAnd I need You when the day is doneAnd I need You always...repeatThanks for letting me share.
