Encouraging words in song
« on: July 07, 2015, 12:51:41 AM »
As I laid in my bed today feeling so overwhelmed with the last several years of life, I went back in time to a place when I so depressed, even before dealing with my current situation with my exdh and his mother. A situation I thought so terrible at the time, I contemplated taking my life. No, I'm not even considering that, far from it, thank God. There was this song that I would always go to, my 'battle song' so to speak, that helped rise me out of that situation. A song that I listened to today, for the first time in over 20 years ago. I just dropped by to say to, towhomsoever this may concern....my prayer is that you are encourage today by these words. Blessing and hope to you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyGeM0-IgR8


Though the pressures of life seems to weigh you down,
and you don't know which way to turn
;
God is concerned and He's working it out for you.

The child that's on cocaine, through prayer he can change.
That marriage that's on the verge of breaking up,
although sometimes you have to walk alone
.
Now you ask yourself, is there a word from the Lord,
you need a blessing and you need it right away;
God is concerned and He's working it out for you.

No peace in the home, and no peace on the job,
the bills are due, and your health is failing too
;
God is concerned and He's working it out for you.

He's working it out,
He's working it out for you.

He's working it out,
He's working it out for.

God cares,
I'm so glad to know He cares,
I'm so glad to know He cares,
and He's working it out for you.


Artist: Shirley Caesar

One of my favorites: "I'm Still Standing" Elton John

You could never know what its like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice.
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide
Behind that mask you use.

And did you think this fool could never win?
Well look at me I'm coming back again!
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I'm still standing
You just fade away!

Don't you know I'm still standing
Better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor
Feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'M STILL STANDING!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!!

I'M STILL STANDING!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!!

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road
Leaving me again
The threats you made were meant
To cut me down
And if our love was just a circus
You'd be a clown by now

Don't you know I'm still standing
Better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor
Feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'M STILL STANDING!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!!

I'M STILL STANDING!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!!

Don't you know I'm still standing
Better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor
Feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'M STILL STANDING!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!!

I'M STILL STANDING!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!!

For you, whoever you are...


Blessings -Laura Story  http://life1019.com/songs/blessings/


We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

ĎCause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know Youíre near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise


We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
As long as we have faith to believe

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world canít satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise




May this song reach down and touch you today. Blessing

And today this, there's a brighter day coming. And though we may not see it, or feel it at times...His promises remains true.  :wave:

Hope In Front Of Me  (Artist: Danny Gokey)  http://life1019.com/songs/hope-front/



Iíve been running through rain that I thought would never end
Trying to make it on faith in a struggle against the wind
Iíve seen the dark and the broken places
But I know in my soul no matter how bad it gets, Iíll be alright

Thereís hope in front of me
Thereís a light I still see it
Thereís a hand still holding me
Even when I donít believe it
I might be down but Iím not dead
Thereís better days still up ahead
Even after all Iíve seen, thereís hope in front of me

Thereís a place at the end of the storm youíll finally find
Where the hurt and the tears and the pain all fall behind
You open up your eyes and up ahead thereís a big sun shining
Right then and there you realize, youíll be alright

Thereís hope in front of me
Thereís a light I still see it
Thereís a hand still holding me
Even when I donít believe it
I might be down but Iím not dead
Thereís better days still up ahead
Even after all Iíve seen, thereís hope in front of me

Thereís a hope still burning
I can feel it rising through the night
And my worldís still turning
I can feel Your love here by my side

Youíre my hope
Youíre the light I still see it
Your hands are holding me
Even when I donít believe
Oh, Iíve got to believe, IĎve got to believe

I still have hope



1BN
You are my hope
