Tauren Wells – Hills and Valleys

 

My walk with Christ has been one big soundtrack.  I can hear a song and immediately go back to a time when i head this song.  Songs that remind of of the power of God (God’s Not Dead – Newsboys) to the inspiration that i need at that particuar moment (Lauren Daigle.)

Lately, my “go to song” has been Tauren Wells – Hills and Valleys.  According to his Wiki page, Tauren has been in the music industry for more than 15 years.  The song i am currently in love with Hills and Valleys peaked at number 3 in the charts in 2017.  The song speaks to me with where i am at in my walk with Christ.  I  have been through the highs and the lows of life and i recognize that in it all, Jesus has been with me the whole time.  Such a beautiful song that is beautifully wrttien and speaks to the heart.  I hope you enjoy.  God Bless –  PJSLB.

 

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days

And I’ve prayed prayers to Heaven
From my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God, You give and take away

No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

I’ve watched my dreams get broken
In You, I hope again
No matter what I know
I’m safe inside Your hands

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there (to the One who set me there)
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all, You will remain
Over it all

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all, You will remain
Over it all

On the mountains, I will bow my life, yeah
In the valley, I will lift my eyes, yeah

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there (to the One who set me there)
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone (I’m not alone)

You’re God of the hills and valleys (yeah)
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys (You’re the God of the hills)
And I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys (yeah)
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys (You’re the God of the hills)
And I am not alone (God of the valleys)

And I will choose to say
Blessed be Your Name
And I am not alone

What kept Jesus on the cross?

What a beautiful quote from music artist – TOBY MAC.

Free will.  It is something that we all share and have.  As Christians, we are free to act how we like, express our feelings, and do what we want to do.  Our lord and savior, Jesus Christ also had “free will.”  At anytime, Jesus could of said “enough is enough” and not go through all the pain and suffering.  Jesus choice was YOU!  That is how much Jesus loves you.  I pray today that the Holy Spirit moves you with that thought.  You were chosen.  Your life means everything to GOD.  Have a blessed day.  PJSLB

 

When notes become a reminder of God’s love

Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that in good times and bad, God is still sitting at the head of the table. This is the reminder for myself this month written on my desk. Have a great day everyone. God bless. PJSLB

LYRICS COME FROM NATALIE GRANT’S King of the world.

Laura Story – Blessings

In a hectic season in my life, Laura Story has been a voice of reason. PJSLB

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

‘Cause 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 You’re 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

And long that we’d 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 can’t satisfy

What if trials of this life

The rain, the storms, the hardest nights

Are your mercies in disguise
