If I Ain’t Got You Lord

It’s song time again. This time a mash up thanks go out to Alicia Keys, Eric Benet and Tamia

Some people live for the power
Some people think that the physical things define what’s within
And I have been there before, and that life’s a bore
Some people want it all
But I don’t want nothing at all
If it ain’t got you Lord

You see I never knew such a love could be inside of one
And I never knew what my life was for
But now that I’ve open my heart and soul to you I know for sure
You see I was incomplete till the day you I let you into my heart Lord
And I never knew that my heart could feel so precious and pureNow every morning when I wake and open my eyes
I know my heart is beating because you’re by my side

So I cry out and let the whole world know
That you’re my Lord and I’m your child
I let everyone know that I devote my life to you

I don’t need diamonds
big house
Or lots of money
Don’t need the world handed to me on a silver platter
All I need you is you in my life Lord
Because all of that means nothing
If I ain’t got you Lord
If I ain’t got you

There are some people who look everywhere for wealth
And they’ll do anything to find it
Some of them find it but still don’t know happiness
Cause they haven’t open their hearts and souls to you
Haven’t been touched by your Holy Spirit
Don’t know how much happiness you provide How much love you have for us
All from just one touch of your hand
A touch like no other no touch A touch that feels so wonderful

I found my happiness in you Lord
I know your love is pure and true
And as the days and the weeks and the years go by
I know you’ll always be there for me
Your love has already saved my life, my heart and my soul
So I’ll keep praising you each and every day In good and bad times
I’ll let the whole world know you’re my Lord
And I’m your child
I devote my life to you

He’s all over me and He’s keeping me alive

Have you ever walked by a mirror looked into it saw your reflection and thought about just how lucky you are at that moment to be able to do just that.

I have because after a long journey. I realize the Lord is in my heart and in my mind.  I realize that nothing I have accomplished or nothing I will accomplish is done without Him and I realize nothing is impossible with him.

So take a minute today to recognize Him, to praise Him and to thank Him. Do this because you opened your eyes this morning to enjoy yet another day on this beautiful blue ball He has given us. Do this because you know that in good times and bad as the song goes. He’s all over us and He’s keeping us alive!

He Woke Me

Woke up today to another Monday and could hear the rain as it fell upon my window sill. My first thought was ugh!! Monday and to make things worst rain.  Than I thought about it and realized I woke this morning! 

Yes I woke! Thanks to the grace of God my eyes opened to a new day.  

The rain? Well the rain I realized was symbolic of the Lord raining down his blessings upon me. Keeping me one of his children safe as I begin another week!  

Yes the Lord has allowed me to experience a new day and he woke me and for that I am truly blessed. 

Have a blessed week everyone!

Fellow Christians

Ponder this fellow Christians can we really say we are followers of Christ when:

We embrace the immorality of our so called leaders.

Promote racial intolerance.

Turn our backs to the atrocities happening to others simply because they were born in another part of the world.

Let the poor starve.

Let the sick suffer.

Teach our children hate and division instead of love and unity.

All in the name of our own so called “comfort” 

The answer should be crystal clear.

The answer is no we cannot.

To follow Christ is not simply to recite the scriptures but to open your heart and actively follow the teachings of the Lord, even if it causes us a little discomfort now and then.

Happy Saturday. Let us sing his praise.

Good Morning & Happy Saturday We have made it through another work week and we wake to another day because of His glory.

Take a moment to sing his praise and to pray for those who don’t believe or are simply lost. Pray that they too will find their way home. Because once they come home they they will always be welcomed with open arms as we are all because we are now and will forever be His Children and He is all forgiving.

The First, The Last, My Everything

With a nod to Barry White’s classic You’re The First, The Last, My Everything

You put it together, didn’t You?

You definitely put it together, didn’t you Lord?

Isn’t that nice?

I mean, when you really sit and think about it, isn’t it really, really nice?

Nobody but you and me

You’ve put it together, Lord

 

The first, my last, my everything

And the answer to everything

You’re my sun, my moon, my guiding star

All kinds of wonderful, that’s what you are

 

I know there’s only, only one like you

I know you can do all things

No purpose of yours can be thwarted

Lord, you’re all I’m living for

Your plans stand firm

Your love for your children endures forever

I’ll never abandon the works of your hand

You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

 

You allowed me to return home

You let me find you

You forgave all my sins

And in you I’ve found so many things

You’re my strongest defender; the one who saved me

My faith is so great I could only give you

I proclaim to all how great you are

You’re bring us all to a new day

 

I see so many way that I

Will love you till the day I pass out of death into eternal life

You’re all of our realities, yet some of us remain lost

But you still forgive them through Christ

You’re the first, the last, my everything

 

You and me, Lord

Just you and me

You are the first, the last, my everything

 

You stepped into my life And I’m oh, so happy

With a nod to Melba Moore’s classic you stepped into my life

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
Stepped into my life
Steeped into my life

Before you came my way
I had so much worry
Always thought it would never work out
Thought I was alone
That I wasn’t worthy
But then you came to me
Told me I was your child
And you would always love me
All I had to do is have my heart believe
If I wanted to come home I just need to confess
And I’ll be forgiven of any sin

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy

Others look at me and wonder what has happened
You gave me so much more than I deserved
Now I kneel before you and praise you every day
Cause I understand that you’re always watching and protecting me
And I believe that You will work out all my problems
Because I know with You all things are possible

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
