I Have This Hope
Tenth Avenue North

As I walk this great unknown
Questions come and questions go
Was there purpose for the pain?
Did I cry these tears in vain?I don’t want to live in fear
I want to trust that You are near
Trust Your grace can be seen
In both triumph and tragedyI have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

But sometimes my faith feels thin
Like the night will never end
Will You catch every tear
Or will You just leave me here?

But I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go
[x2]

So, whatever happens I will not be afraid
Cause You are closer than this breath that I take
You calm the storm when I hear You call my name
I still believe that one day I’ll see Your face

And I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me
I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go
[x2]

Filipino Recording Artist TALA is putting me in a good mood

For the past week, I have been missing the Philippines.  I was not born there but its where my families history started and in time, I have been very affectionate to the country.

While searching Apple Music, I came across an artist, TALA.  Normally, I skip new artist and go striaght to the hitmakers of my time like RIVERMAYA, ERASERHEADS, ETC. but this time i decided to click on it.  Boy was i glad i did.

A song called Labi played and within the first 10 seconds, i was hooked.  It was like hearing Erykah Badu singing filipino.

Needless to say, i will definitely be listening to her other songs.  Have a blessed day everyone.

What the bible says about worrying

64913344_2756283861113302_1993445925829214208_n.jpg

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6

My absolute favorite verse in the bible.  From 6th grade worrying about friends, 8th grade worrying about high school, and now being an adults worrying about my family; this verse speaks to whatever stage you are in your life.

Some translations use WORRY while others use ANXIOUS.  The thing is; arent the two one and the same.  Worry leads to you being anxious and vice versa.  In my life, i have used this verse in the literal sense.  I would plead (petition) my case and in doing so at a young age, it has shapped the way i pray to God.  My prayers are personal and intimate.  PJSLB

Trust Me…Listen to Bobby McFerrin and DONT WORRY BE HAPPY!!!.

Lauren Daigle – Billboard Performance and Review

For the record, everyone here at NeedTheSpirit has been a fan of Lauren Daigle since day one.  From her album – Look Up Child to the inspiration of How Can It Be, Lauren has always been a go to when our spirits need “filling up”

On May 1, 2019 something amazing happened.  With just under eight million people watching their TV’s we see Lauren standing on top of a small platform, ready to perform her hit You Say.  What happens next will take your breath away.

 

It sends shivers down my spine to know that millons of people around the world are listening to this song.  I am not exargerating when i say this.  Despite the Billboard Awards having performances from mega superstarts such as The Jonas Brother and Mariah Carey, it was Luaren’s performance that was the most “Shazamed” act of the night.

What an inspiring night that will be in the minds and hearts of millions of people for years to come.  God Bless PJSLB
