Standard

My head is up in the clouds
I don’t know much about much
I just know I’m crazy about my life

I’m slightly off in a crowd I
don’t really go with the flow
I just Like to take things kind of slow

I don’t give up in a hurry
Nothing you do makes me worry
I take control of the way things go

I wake up late in the mornings
Nothing I do’s ever boring
And if it is I’ll just change my ways

Chorus:
I try to smell the roses everywhere I go
And if it rains I know a rainbow’ gonna show
If it’s the darkest night I’ll wish upon a star
If it’s the end I had the greatest ride by far

I say hey,my head is up in the clouds I don’t know much about much I just know I’m crazy about my life

I’ve showed my fear the way out I, told it to never come back I, walked it all the way out that door

Some people live for the moment
And others plan it forever
I took that moment and made it mine

So come and dance with me baby
Dont let mehear you say maybe
For this may be all we ever have

Embrace the pleasure of being
Entice the nothing we’re seeing
And that’s to sum up all I know

Why did all those things happen to Job?

Standard

I don’t know about you, but I have been wondering about this for years. Why did all those bad things happen to Job? And believe it or not, I found the answer. I heard a sermon in which the answer was given. To me it was so profound, I just have to share it with you too!

First we need to understand why Job was so prosperous. The answer is found in Job 1:9-10 – “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? Read it again! Satan couldn’t stand Job. He hated him, but he couldn’t do anything to Job! Why? God put a hedge around Job and his household and everything he had!

So what changed? Why did God remove the hedge?

We find the answer in Job 3:25 – “What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me”.

Job’s fear of the evil one was stronger than his faith in God!

Fear is something that paralyses us. It takes the joy from our lives. Fear is not from God! Fear is Satan’s way to steal your faith!

Romans 8:15 – “The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

Stop being fearful today. Stop expecting the worst to happen to you. If you carry on, your fears will come true.

Instead, start having faith! You have a Father in heaven who longs to put a hedge around you. He wants to protect you! But you need to have faith. Faith is the only way to please God. Hebrews 10:38 – “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”

Stand up today, say enough is enough, stand on the word and take back what Satan has stolen from you! Start living by faith!

Alabaster Box

Standard

The room grew still
As she made her way to Jesus
She stumbled through the tears that made her blind
She felt such pain
Some spoke in anger
Heard folks whisper
There’s no place here for her kind
Still on she came
Through the shame that flushed her face
Until at last, she knelt before his feet
And though she spoke no words
Every tear she she shed was heard
As she poured her love for the Master
From her box of Alabaster

And I’ve come to pour
My praise on Him-like oil
From Mary’s alabasterbox
Don’t be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
And dry them with my hair
You weren’t there-the night He found me
You did not feel what I felt
When He wrapped His loving arms around me
And you don’t know the cost
Of the oil in my alabaster box

I can’t forget
The way life used to be
I was a prisoner
To the sins that had me bound
I spent my days
Poured my life-without measure
Into a little treasure box
I thought I had found
Until the day-when Jesus came to me
And healed my soul
With the wonders of-His love
So now I’m giving back to Him
All the praise He’s worthy of
I’ve been forgiven
And that’s why
I love Him so much

And I’ve come to pour
My praise on Him-like oil
From Mary’s alabasterbox
Don’t be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
And dry them with my hair
You weren’t there-the night He found me
You did not feel what I felt
When He wrapped His loving arms around me
And you don’t know the cost
Of the oil in my alabaster box
