The Enemy’s been DEFEATED: It Bears Repeating!!!

So, this is a slightly older praise song.  But some things – like the fact that the enemy of our souls has already been defeated – bear repeating!

Plus, I really like the arrangement and the video intro….  (“Shout Unto God” – Hillsong United, recordes LIVE in India)

It’s Alright

So…. even if this isn’t your type of music (yes, I’m a middle-aged white woman who likes Christian Rap… #DontJudgeMe! 🙂 ), the lyrics are well worth a listen (or a read).

It’s alright

-as performed by J’son & Mike’s Chair

Walls are closing in
I know what it’s like
To fight when nothing at all
In life seems just going right
Pressure’s heavy on you
I’m talking heavy pressure
You look around
And everyone else is doing better
Often you are, You are running but stumbling
Dollars you make, they go out as fast as they’re coming in
Man, and you’re struggling just to stay afloat
Relating to Peter, it’s safer just to stay in the boat
Open the glass cause I’m just too distracted to see
Making no sense on why this stuff
just keeps happening to me
The white flag’s in your head
Ready to wave it
I pray you heard that still voice inside When you be praying, saying

Lay it all down at His feet

Lay it all down at His feet
When it makes no sense

It’s okay
It’s alright
Cause He sees
and knows your needs
It’s alright
It’s okay
It’s alright
So don’t stress
Go to your knees

What son would ask for pie
And his father give him mud
So how much more will the
Father in heaven show His love
From every jot and tittle
Things big and small
Every hair on your head
Yeah, He cares for it all
He sees your needs and knows them From the job that you lose
The car breaking down
Kids giving you blues
So when the weight is on you
Brings you to your knees
Just as where you should be
And cast on Him your needs
That’s why the veil was cracked
This wider grace was shown
To give you access
To the king on the throne
Lay it all down at His feet
When it makes no sense

It’s okay
It’s alright
Cause He sees and knows your needs It’s alright
It’s okay
It’s alright
So don’t stress
Go to your knees

All your worries couldn’t add a
Single moment to your life
Cause when you worry
You don’t trust Him
Turn and run to the light
Don’t be anxious
He’ll give you peace
That transcends all your strife
He’s got amazing plans for you
So run with all your might

It’s okay
It’s alright
Cause He sees and knows your needs It’s alright
It’s okay
It’s alright
So don’t stress
Go to your knees

It’s alright…..

It’s Dangerous to just “Play”at Faith

Some of us have learned the hard way that jumping into to Christianity and “church work” (ministry) in our own strength instead of God’s strength can leave your soul bruised and bleeding.  No more playing for this girl. God has some things to do through me.  #ALLin #FirstFruitFast #AmazingIsHere #ReconnectingIn2016

Feel like you’re in a Spiritual War Zone?

Well, that’s because… you are in a spiritual war zone!  It is a fight.  But when we’re in Christ, we fight from a place of victory because THE BATTLE IS ALREADY WON!

To end my letter I tell you, be strong in the Lord and in his great power.  Wear the full armor of God. Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s clever tricks.  Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places. That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.

 So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living.   On your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong.   And also use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows that come from the Evil One.  Accept God’s salvation as your helmet. And take the sword of the Spirit—that sword is the teaching of God.  Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.

  – Ephesians 6:10-18  ERV
