✞ Music “Infected” by 12 Stones


“Infected”

It’s So Pathetic
In A Million Ways
What A Desperate Disgrace
Strung Out, So Proud, Big Mouth
Have We Gone To Far To Change

Brainwashed
Like Hollywood
Spreading Through Your Neighborhood
Built Up, Burnt Down, Watch Out
Now Its Gotten In Our Blood

Time Is Running Out
It’s Running Out, It’s Running Out

I Feel Weak
I Feel Numb
Had Enough
Of This Poison We’ve Injected
Living In This World Infected
Out, Let Me Out
Tell Me How
We All Got So Disconnected
Sick Of Living In This World Infected

It’s Systematic
Livin In This Haze
Sleeping On A Live Grenade
Blacked Out, Face Down, No Sound
We’re Blowin Up This Place

How Long
Can We Endure
When We’ve Tainted All That’s Pure
Selfish, High Risk, Death Wish
What If No One Finds A Cure
Time Is Running Out
It’s Running Out, It’s Running Out

I Feel Weak
I Feel Numb
Had Enough
Of This Poison We’ve Injected
Living In This World Infected
Out, Let Me Out
Tell Me How
We All Got So Disconnected
Sick Of Living In This World Infected

✞ Music “Start Over” by Flame (feat NF)


“Start Over”
(feat. NF)

Everybody’s got a blank page
A story they’re writing today
A wall that they’re climbing
You can’t carry the past on their shoulders
But you can start over
Regrets, no matter what you goin’ through
Jesus, He gave it all to save you
He carried the cross on His shoulders
So you can start over

Don’t let your heart be troubled
Don’t be afraid
To the broken hearted that wished that they’d
Never been born, never been torn, never sinned, never disobeyed
I know you think there’s no hope, but that ain’t true
I know you feelin’ regret
(Like I) brought this all on myself
(Like I) messed it up big time, and this time I don’t deserve God’s help
(Thinking) how can God forgive me after knowin’ what I did (can He?)
After knowin’ that I hid from Him, and I stayed away and backslid
Jesus came for the sick (so true)
Jesus came for the weak (amen)
Jesus came to give good news and have set the captives free (amen)
Jesus came for the poor (amen)
Jesus came with the keys
Jesus came to remove the chains so the prisoners are released

Everybody’s got a blank page
A story they’re writing today
A wall that they’re climbing
You can’t carry the past on their shoulders
But you can start over
Regrets, no matter what you goin’ through
Jesus, He gave it all to save you
He carried the cross on His shoulders
So you can start over

See, His love is deeper than the ocean floor
Run to His arms like an open door
God the Father sent the Son
So men can come and be free and ain’t gotta run no more
Come to me, all who are weary; with heavy burdens, I’ll give you rest
Separated you from the sin, as far as the east is from the west
Thrown in the sea of forgetfulness
What sin? What offense?
And when them waves come crashing in, I’ll calm the winds in your defense
So, whatever it is that you’ve done
He put that punishment on His Son
You’ll never come under His condemnation… Satan and his accusations
So, dry your eyes, lift up your head
Hallelujah! God is not dead!
Plus He gave us His peace, and He took our guilt on the cross instead
Took our place and now we embrace
A clean slate with the eyes of faith
We know unfailing love, unfailing love, it’s not too late, start over

Everybody’s got a blank page
A story they’re writing today
A wall that they’re climbing
You can’t carry the past on their shoulders
But you can start over
Regrets, no matter what you goin’ through
Jesus, He gave it all to save you
He carried the cross on His shoulders
So you can start over

Called To Become

Poetry Logo

Called to become

You are called to become a perfect creation.
No-one is called to become who you are called to be.
It does not matter how short or tall or thick set or slow you may be.
It does not matter whether you sparkle with life or are silent as a still pool,
Whether you sing your song aloud or weep alone in the darkness.
It does not matter whether you feel loved and admired or unloved and alone.
For you are called to become a perfect creation.
This becoming may be gentle or harsh, subtle or violent.
But it never ceases, never pauses or hesitates, only is –
Creative force – calling you.
Calling you to become a perfect creation

My Thoughts 💭

One of our ministers (Nik) just emailed me this amazing poem which was read out whilst on her retreat. Thought it would speak to some of you too! 🙂

Shadow Of The Beast

Shadow Of The Beast

by Steve Rebus

 

A tortured soul, wriggling with sin,

So much horror to know where to begin,

The black hands of Satan hold me from within.

Lord of my heart, Father to my soul,

Stop the firey darts, and take control,

Give me a new start and fill this black hole.

You hear my call, from the shadow of the beast,

No giants too tall, no longer a feast,

Your blood saves all; even the least. 

The eyes of my heart are now open,

Reading the words you had spoken,

Your light shines brighter through the broken.

 My Thoughts 💭 

I’m not sure if this is a poem or if it will turn into a song, but I thought I would share it with you anyway, hope you enjoy! 😀

Not afraid to die

 

This song came to me as I was with Sarah at another Eric Bibb concert, we were sat very high up in the eaves of Cadogan Hall and I felt a sudden sense of danger. I pictured the whole place collapsing and I was trapped under all of the seats etc.

 

When we got home I picked up my acoustic guitar and this song (lyrics & chords) just came straight out. I havn’t edited it since and this happened around 2005. 


Not afraid to die

Music & Lyrics by Steve Rebus

 

Verse 1 G, D/F#, A Asus

On that fateful night

In Cadohan Hall

Eric Bibb’s Blues filling wall to wall.

 

Verse 2

A big explosion

And you were scared

But I was the one trapped beneath the stairs

 

(Chorus) Dsus, G, D/F#, G, A

Please save yourself, before it’s too late

Please save yourself, but don’t you cry

Because I got the Lord in my heart…..I’m not afraid to die

 

Verse 3

You let go of my hand

With tears on your face

The look in your eyes, as you left this place

 

Verse 4

I can feel the heat

Of the flames on my skin

The creak from the roof as it finally caved in

 

(Chorus)

Please save yourself, before it’s too late

Please save yourself, but don’t you cry

Because I got the Lord in my heart…..I’m not afraid to die

 

Solo

 

Verse 5

Remember me

And the life we had

Share your smile and never be sad

 

(Chorus)

Please save yourself, before it’s too late

Please save yourself, but don’t you cry

Because I got the Lord in my heart…..I’m not afraid to die

When you’ve got the Lord in your heart…..don’t be afraid to die

I am not sure if this is an outpouring of my love for Sarah and how I would die for her, or if its trying to show how much inner peace I feel now I follow Jesus, maybe its both?!

 

Please comment and let me know your thoughts! 😀
