Beautiful Jesus!

This song has been in my head along with Kristian Stanfill’s “Beautiful Jesus” since listening to “Handel’s Messiah” yesterday.  It was incredible.  If you haven’t heard it .. you should check it out.  You can head on over to SGRWebster.com and watch this video.

I guess this is part of my response …

I can’t figure out how to embed this   haha.

Lifehouse “Storm” lyrics

Passion LA

The Passion regional in LA starts tonight at 7:30.  I’m posting this around 7:30, so that means it will start in about 3 hours.  Love time zones …

Since I come from the previous regional in Chicago, my city is praying for you, LA.  I will be on my knees asking God to help you grasp the width, length, height and depth of the love of Jesus.  I pray that you will have generous hearts, to dig some wells in Africa. I pray that God would do great things in your hearts, to stir up love and passion for Jesus, that will result in glory to His name. 

Can’t wait to hear the things that God is about to do … 

For Molly..

I know how you feel .. really I do.  I hope this song will maybe give you encouragement for tonight.  Isaiah 55:8-11.  God’s will do all that He pleases.  I’m here for you, my friend.

Downhere- “Little is much”

Desire

 Time for another Phil Wickham song?  I think so!

“You made the light and sent it down, to show us who you are, now it’s bursting out my heart”.  Love that line. How true.  And may it be so more and more…

“Desire”

I’m running through the gates of love, as fast as I can
I can’t wait to see You
‘Cause I’m a desperate man
You made the light and sent it down
to show us who You are
Now It’s bursting out my heart

My desire is burning like a million stars
And I’ll keep reaching out
Reaching out for You

I’d be nothing without You
Yeah I would die
If I didn’t have Your hand
If I couldn’t look into Your eyes
Jesus if Your love’s the fuel then I’m the desperate flame
That’s screaming out Your name

My desire is burning like a million stars
And I’ll keep reaching out
Reaching out for You
My desire, is burning with the fire You sparked
And I’ll keep reaching out, reaching out for You

This is glory rising, over a new horizon
I See Your love, I feel Your smile
Your in my heart and I will run with all I have to You

I’m Freaking Out

I thought I would write all three of my college essays today …. I was wrong.  I don’t know what my deal is, but I cannot seem to organize my thoughts on paper very well.  I finished one, but I am not happy with it at all.  I don’t think it accurately reflects my heart, but I just don’t know how to get it that way.  I need help, badly, and I wanted to send everything in this weekend, but now I have musical too.. and I am just freaking out.

Well, despite that, I found a good song.  Take a listen …

Matt Nathanson- “Car Crash”

I’m wide awake and so alive
Ringing like a bell
Tell me this is paradise
And not someplace I fell
‘Cause I keep on fallin’ down

I wanna feel the car crash
I wanna feel the capsize
I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
‘Til I’m satisfied
I wanna feel the car crash
‘Cause I’m dyin’ on the inside
I wanna let go and know
That I’ll be alright, alright

Just push me ’til I have to fly
I’ve shed my skin, my scars
Take me deep out past the lights
Where nothing dims these stars
Nothing dims these stars

I wanna feel the car crash
I wanna feel the capsize
I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
‘Til I’m satisfied
I wanna feel the car crash
‘Cause I’m dyin’ on the inside
I wanna let go and know
That I’ll be alright, alright

So right
It’s all wrong

I’m wide awake and so alive

Typing This Hurts

Yes … typing hurts at the moment. Why? Because I decided to pick up my guitar again after not doing so for quite some time.  I’ve resolved to kind of re-teach myself.  I already know all of the basics (although I had to be refreshed on the tuning technique … long story there).  So here I go … working on re-callousing….. (?) my fingers.

The first song I’m just going to work on is “Our God Reigns” by Delirious , because It’s super easy ;).   Any other songs that are good get-back-into-playing-guitar songs?
