He Knows My Name

Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee."



I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands

Chorus
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

I have a Father
He calls me His own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go

Chorus
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

K.I.S.S.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
Albert Einstein

Never Alone....

even if it feels like it sometimes.

His Own

His Own
Written by: Justin Adams, Mary Beth Adams, Drew Hester, Gannin Arnold

Little boy, big dreams
Playing air guitar
Always dreaming about being a star
Little boy, high hopes
Waiting for someone
Who would see him for who he was

Accept him with love that has no strings
Guide him through this maze of life
And never leave

Looking, searching
For a father I could love
Wanting, needing
Feeling something from above
Waiting to hear that I’m His own
His very own

Wasn’t long the young man
Trying hard to stand in the big crowd
Making his way
Doing things a young man
Just shouldn’t do
Needing a strong hand to pull him through

Accept him with a love that has no strings
Guide him through this maze of life
And never leave

Now the little boy’s grown
He has become an object of affection
On center stage Of One great Man’s attention
Lord, it’s You I was looking for

Looking, searching
For a father I could love
Wanting, needing
Feeling something from above
Waiting to hear that I’m His own
Child to a man, now I have grown
I finally feel like I’m at home
Now I’m Your own

Bleeding Love

The lyrics to this song move me, and have been on my mind a lot lately. I happened to catch an episode of "So You Think You Can Dance" and saw this performance. I loved this interpretation of the song.

Closed off from love


I didn't need the pain


Once or twice was enough


And it was all in vain


Time starts to pass


Before you know it you're frozen



But something happened


For the very first time with you


My heart melts into the ground


Found something true


And everyone's looking round


Thinking I'm going crazy



But I don't care what they say


I'm in love with you


They try to pull me away


But they don't know the truth


My heart's crippled by the vein


That I keep on closing


You cut me open and I


Keep bleeding



Keep, keep bleeding love


I keep bleeding


I keep, keep bleeding love


Keep bleeding


Keep, keep bleeding love


You cut me open



Trying hard not to hear


But they talk so loud


Their piercing sounds fill my ears


Try to fill me with doubt


Yet I know that the goal


Is to keep me from falling


But nothing's greater


Than the rush that comes with your embrace


And in this world of loneliness I see your face


Yet everyone around me


Thinks that I'm going crazy, maybe, maybe


But I don't care what they say


I'm in love with you


They try to pull me away


But they don't know the truth


My heart's crippled by the vein


That I keep on closing


You cut me open

Right Action

The four parts of right action are:
Compassion, Understanding, Wisdom, and Acceptance.

Compassion – without compassion no action can be good.

Understanding – without understanding no action can be right.

Wisdom – without wisdom all action is a slave to ignorance.

Acceptance – without acceptance of the consequences, there is no learning, no wisdom, no understanding, and no compassion.

Act not until all 4 parts are within your hand!
