Day 1 of 7 in 7: Make Grace My Reality

Going to go for 7 in 7! What’s is 7 in 7? see here.


Day 1: Make Grace My Reality

V1, PC, C, V2, PC, C, V3, PC, C, C

Listen Here

VERSE 1
How many times have I tried and stumbled,
Working so hard, falling on my face,
Curled in a ball, feeling raw and broken,
trying to hide from my past mistakes.…

Day 2 of 7 in 7: Confession’s Lullaby

This one did not come easy… I think the tiredness inspired the style. ;-)


Confession’s Lullaby

Listen Here

Father save me from myself
from my selfish ways
Teach me to place others first
as I live my days

I am weary I am weak
and I make mistakes
though I stumble and fall down
place me on my feet

Help me trust you and obey
To Hear, and then, to do
Help me follow in your steps
Becoming more like you

You are faithful, you are just
You will forgive my sin
I don’t deserve the grace you give
but thank you once again…

Day 3 of 7 in 7: Save Us From This Crazy Busy World

This one doesn’t feel settled yet, but for the purposes of 7 in 7, it’s completed. :-)


Save Us From This Crazy Busy World

Listen Here

VERSE 1
So many things demand my time
So many things fight for my life
How much of what I say and do
makes a real eternal difference for You

PRE-CHORUS
Show me what I don’t need in my life
Show me how to live life as a living sacrifice

CHORUS
We are Your kingdom, here on earth
sent to proclaim the second birth
Help us remember why we’re here
It’s You we love, it’s You we fear
What You’ve done and what You’ll do
We want to be consumed by You
Save us from this crazy busy world

VERSE 2
Distractions assaulting from all sides
Attacking, they steal away my time
The clock ticking fast, time drifts away
What in the world did I do with my day

VERSE 3
My best intentions fall away
The calendar dictates my day
So much to do, I’m sinking fast
Stuck under the weight of these endless tasks

BRIDGE
So many things dominate our time
The meaningless, mundane, won’t last
We have You now – You’re our eternal prize

TAG
Save us from this world…

Day 4 of 7 in 7: Through God and God Alone

Only when, and because, God empowers us, are we able to succeed. Without Him, we will surely fail. When we are obviously inadequate, and He is obviously strong- in us and in our circumstances -God is given that much more glory – because it’s that much more obvious that He must be empowering us.…

Day 5 of 7 in 7: Show Me How to Love Like You

This one came pretty easily… inspired by my day job. Bridge doesn’t quite feel settled, but I’m off to work ’till midnight, so it is what it is!


Show Me How To Love Like You

Listen Here

CHORUS
Show me how to love like you
in all I do
In every action
Every word
Every circumstance
Show me how to be Your hands
and be Your feet
Show me how to love like you

VERSE 1
When I’m tired and I’m weak and overwhelmed
by the mission that you’ve set in front of me
Give me strength to carry on
Long after my strength is gone
only with Your help will I succeed

VERSE 2
Lord, I struggle to have patience and compassion
When those I serve don’t always treat me well
When they’re striking back at me
Give me the strength to be
Your living grace here upon the earth

BRIDGE
Help me remember who You are, where You’ve been,
The sacrifices that You’ve made for my sin
What You’ve done for me
Let me do for You
For the people here on earth that You’ve sent me to…
