O, Church Arise


Prior to Steve Lawson’s message at this year’s Shepherd’s Conference, Keith and Kristyn Getty led the worship. Steve was clearly moved in the Spirit when he took the stage. His message was titled: The Invisible War and was based on the book of Job as applied to the sanctifying work done by our Sovereign Lord in our lives to prepare us for eternity and, of course, for His glory. I have downloaded that message and have watched it again and again. Continue reading

Always There


by Todd Agnew
I’ve been leaning on things I’m finding unstable
I’ve been standing on things that are unsure
I’ve been surrounding myself with things I’m finding
Unable to fill me
Unable to still my trembling soul

CHORUS
But You’re always there when I turn around
Even though I’ve been running for so long
You’re always there when I cry out
Even when I’ve been silent for so long
You’re always there when I need You
I need You

I’ve been reaching for things that are no good to me
I’ve been wrestling with things that are bringing me down
I’ve been losing sleep over things that really don’t matter
I know You want better
But it’s so hard to see Your side

CHORUS
But You’re always there when I turn around
Even though I’ve been running for so long
You’re always there when I cry out
Even when I’ve been silent for so long
You’re always there when I need You
I need You

Can You hear me
Can You hear me calling
Cause it’s been so long
And I’m sorry
That it’s been so long, so long

CHORUS
But You’re always there when I turn around
Even though I’ve been running for so long
You’re always there when I cry out
Even when I’ve been silent for so long
You’re always there when I need You
I need You

CHORUS
But You’re always there when I turn around
Even though I’ve been running for so long, so long
You’re always there when I cry out
Even when I’ve been silent for so long, so long
You’re always there
When I need You
I need You

My Desire by Jeremy Camp


You want to be real
You want to be empty inside
You want to be someone laying down your pride
You want to be someone someday
Then lay it all down before the King
You want to be whole
You want to have purpose inside
You want to have virtue and purify your mind
You want to be set free today then lay it all down before the King

Chorus:
This is my desire
This is my return
This is my desire to be used by you

You want to be real
You want to be emptied inside
And I know my heart is to feel you near
And I know my life
It’s to do your will
It’s to do your will

(Chorus)

All my life I have seen where you’ve taken me
Beyond all I have hoped and there’s more left unseen
There’s not much I can do to repay all you’ve done so I give my hands to use

(Chorus)
