Perfect Love by The O.C. Supertones

Do you need someone?
Are you like me?
Do you fall apart?
You’re just like me.

Have there been times?
You felt so low?
Don’t you forget
You’re not alone

Angels are standing by your bed
Jesus is watching over you
He’ll never leave that’s what he said
Is that what you want ’cause I know I do

(chorus)
I want love love love
I want perfect love. (X3)

Well I pretend
I just need me
I seem so strong
But it’s make believe

’cause I’ve seen love fail
I’ve been betrayed
I’ve seen love pass
I’ve seen love fade

But I know that God is not that way
He doesn’t change from day to day
He doesn’t fail he doesn’t leave
And I want that so desperately

(chorus)

He loves broken hearts
Faith like a child
And now here I come
With just a broken heart
And faith like a child

I want love love love
I want perfect love.
I want love love love
I want perfect love.
Will someone tell me where to find
Some place to ease my troubled mind (X2)

I want love love love
I want perfect love.

This is the Way by Last Tuesday

This is the way I (no)
This is the way we work it out
It’s not about you
It’s not about me
This is the new beginning
This is the day we,
This is the start of what we said,
We thought was wrong was with,
The way we do things,
Let’s meet…
every chance we get

Take take take take one final look
Make make make make this one to
remember
Take our time we will get there
This house is not our home.

Can we talk about it
Can we see what everybody thinks
I know that,
You know that,
We won’t
always agree
On how to start from
Where we left off with our Resolve
But we must move
Move on now
this is our new beginning

This is the way we wanted it to be…
(With every day)
This is the way we wanted it to be…
(With every breath)
This is the way we wanted it to be..

I love what O.C. Supertones Radio at Pandora.com introduces me to 😀

Your Love is Strong

Heavenly Father, you always amaze me
Let your kingdom come in my world and in my life
Give me the food I need to live through today
And forgive me as I forgive the people that wrong me
Lead me far from temptation
Deliver me from the evil one

I look out the window the birds are composing
Not a note is out of tune or out of place
I walk to the meadow and stare at the flowers
Better dressed than any girl on her wedding day

So why do I worry?
Why do I freak out?
God knows what I need
You know what I need

Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong

The kingdom of the heavens is now advancing
Invade my heart, invade this broken town
The kingdom of the Heavens is buried treasure
Would you sell yourself to buy the one you’ve found?

Two things you told me
That you are strong
And you love me
Yes, you love me

Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong

Our God in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Above all names
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us weary sinners
Keep us far away from our vices
And deliver us from these prisons

——————–

In view of God’s great love for us, should we not also show him love? And how then shall we love? By words alone or by extravagant gifts? Certainly not! In John 14:21, Jesus says, “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.” Let us not be dead in action; instead let us love God by obeying his commands. Have you been obedient today?

I wasn’t going to, but I am

here is a song I just wrote:

How Shall I Stand? (Inspired by Luke 21:36)

Glory, Glory, Lord you are grand
Finally coming to heal our land
I am unworthy, wretched and wrong
How then shall I stand?
Lord, please make me stand!

The Son of Man
Is coming in glory
How shall I stand; how shall I stand
Radiant beauty
Perfect is He
How shall I stand
How shall I stand

Out of the darkness I see your light shine
Here comes your kingdom in power divine
Honor and reverence your presence demands
How then shall I stand?
Lord, please make me stand!

The Son of Man
Is coming in glory
How shall I stand; how shall I stand
Radiant beauty
Perfect is He
How shall I stand
How shall I stand

Though I am broken, I cry out to you
Cleanse my heart – unfaithful, untrue
Your perfect blood my only relief
It’s hard to believe I stand
Lord, you make me stand!

The Son of Man
Is coming in glory
How shall I stand; how shall I stand
Radiant beauty
Perfect is He
How shall I stand
By His blood I stand!

Glory! Glory! Lord you are good!
I lift up my hands and cry as I should
This gift you have given, I can’t understand
Why you’d make me stand…
Glory! Glory! Lord you are good!
I lift up my hands and cry as I should
This gift you have given, I can’t understand
Why you’d make me stand
Lord, you make me stand
Your blood makes me stand
Lord, you make me stand

————————–——–

Luke 21:36:
“Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

New Song – I don’t have a title for this one yet

I’m seeking out your face
I cannot see beyond these mountains
This desert’s left me parched
Many miles from every fountain
I break down and cry
I’m asking you why
Why I’m in this place

You’re calling back,
“You don’t need to know, you don’t need to know
My love is all you need to know, all you need to grow
When it seems life is moving far too slow
Oh – you don’t need to know”

Every other guy
I swear, he is the one I’ll marry
I’m tired of this game
It’s left my heart so bruised and weary
I’m in this place again
And asking you when
When will I meet my future

You’re calling back,
“You don’t need to know, you don’t need to know
My love is all you need to know, all you need to grow
When it seems life is moving far too slow
Oh – you don’t need to know”

Then I finally see
All this mystery
Is just the way you show your greatness

Oh!
I don’t need to know, I don’t need to know
Your love is all I need to know, all I need to grow
When it seems life is moving far too slow
Oh- I don’t need to know
Oh- I don’t need to know

God Help Me to Sing

Downhere – “Unbelievable”

Dust, generations, thousands of years of beautiful hope
Men long gone before me, sang to God from this hymnbook
I can hear singing, I can hear singing

Oh, Your love is so unbelievable
It won’t be long and we’ll need another song to sing
Your love is so unbelievable, we sing through the ages
Your love is unbelievable

Buildings, stone by stone, choirs of angels still sing on Sunday mornings
Through the wood, and stained glass windows, paintings of story, dance in colour
I can hear singing, I can hear singing

And can it be that I should gain, unbelievable love, unbelievable love
Amazing grace how sweet the sound, unbelievable love, unbelievable love
For the Lord God omnipotent reigns in unbelievable love

Songs, dust and ashes, I’m not afraid of my journey home

I can hear singing

I don’t know

I dk! I dk! I DK!

*sigh*

Just kidding, I do know. I know as much as I need to know at this moment. I know that I am sinful. I know that because I’ve sinned my punishment was Hell. I know that God is gracious and compassionate – He’s abounding in grace, mercy and love. I know that God took on flesh as Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus led a perfect life. I know that Jesus was crucified and took all the sins of the world on his shoulders. I know that Jesus rose from the dead and thereby conquered sin and death. I know that the salvation that comes from Christ is mine, because I’ve accepted him as my Lord and Savior. I know that I’m forgiven and that when I die in the flesh I will live eternally in Heaven in the spirit. I know that as a child of God I need to put to death the flesh. I know that whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses it for the sake of Christ will find it. I know I want to be the latter of the two. I know that this is a good place to bring Tenth Avenue North and their song “Let it Go” into the picture.

I’ve been holding on so tight
Look at these knuckles
They’ve gone white
I’m fighting for who I wanna be
I’m just trying to find security

But You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one’s who lose control
You say you will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it’s then I’ll find my soul
You say let it go.

Well it’s hard enough to hear
Harder still, to move beyond this fear
We know there’s nothing I can bring,
So tell me what do you want from me?

But You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one’s who lose control
You say You will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it’s then I’ll find my soul
You say let it go, You say let it go

What do I love?
What do I hate?
What will I lose?
What will I gain?
How do I save my soul?
What if I bend?
What if I break?
What will it cost?
What will it take?
For you to save my soul.

You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one’s who lose control
You say You will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it’s then I’ll find my soul

You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one’s who lose control
You say you will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it’s then I’ll find my soul
You say let it go, You say let it go

So – show of hands – who wants to lose their life?
