NEW: "First Love (Live)"
You're still my first love You're still my only one
God loves us and because of that, He wants us to spend time with Him. Sometimes, I feel myself getting desperate asking God to use me. It is something I desire and something I know He is making me wait for, for a good reason. He has spoken to me through this song and told me that I need to learn before I can teach. We have to spend time in His presence before we can spread it out to others. He has a passion for every one of us, each different from the rest. We are provided with comfort and safety in His presence and we need to acknowledge that before we can go tell others about it. With God as my focus, I will live my life always loving Him first, before all else. Will you do the same?
NEW: "Your Nature (Live)"
Oh, do not stay in Your disappointment But stand up and worship and praise Him Before the breakthrough comes Do not stay in Your disappointment Oh we meet You there
Whatever you need today, God will provide it. Maybe not now and maybe not tomorrow, but in His own timing. He will rescue you because He is good through all things. He is always there as someone to talk to; He always listens. And when no one else understands, He does. The time before the breakthrough is the hardest and it’s a struggle to push through. But you can do it! You are a child of God, and He is beside you every single step of the way!
CLASSIC: "Revelation Song"
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty Who was and is and is to come With all creation, I sing praise to the King of kings You are my everything and I will adore You
When life here gets too much to handle, the only solution is to look upwards. All other “solutions” are only temporary, but God is consistently with us! We were made by Him and we were made to worship Him, as is the rest of the world. So with lifted hands, I will praise Him and with a strong voice, I will declare my love for Him. He is here with us and He is here for us! His gaze is not one of condemnation, it is one of belief. I pray that you will be filled with Him today and you will see the hope, the light at the end of the tunnel.
