Psalm 145: The Lord is gracious

So there is this amazing song by "Shane and Shane" based upon Psalm 145 and it is amazing! Here is the first verse, chorus, and closing!

"One generation will/ commend your kingdom/ to one another/ they will speak of you/ and I will meditate/ on Your wonder/ And they, they will speak/ of Your glorious splendor/ of Your majesty/ everyday I'll praise Thee/ Forever and ever!

The Lord is gracious/ and slow to anger/ He is rich in love/ He is good to all!

All who call on Him/ in truth He is near too/ And He hears there cry/ And saves them!"

So thankful that the Lord is gracious to me, and hears my cry for help! I will stand in awe of your majesty and praise thee forever and ever! Think about these words throughout your day, today! Think about how gracious God is to you and how rich in love He is! Know that when you call on Him, he will hear you and answer you! I hope we all really grasp the great love God has for us, and in turn, devote our lives to bringing glory to Him! Praise God with me today!! We serve an amazing God!

Please go search for this song and listen to it online! It's called "Psalm 145" by "Shane and Shane." It's not only a great song lyrically, but also a very pretty guitar song, so go check it out for both reasons! I know you'll love it! It's one of my favorites!

Prayin for you: Lecrae

So, I know I've been on a Lecrae kick lately, but I can't help it, I'm just writing what I love at the time, so bear with me! : ) So, I have another song of his that I really like, so I'm gonna put the lyrics here for you!! They are really long, but when you find the time, please read them! I think you'll be able to relate!

"Verse 1: Father, I'm praying for a friend, he and I are pretty close. And out of all my friends, for this one I'm concerned the most. He say he reading daily, but he ain't really learning. He been to church but say that he ain't moved by any sermon. His faith's weak, he aint prayed in a week, he wake up and just weep, with his face in the sink. Lord, you gotta help my man, I'm praying for him daily. He ain't sin, but it just seems as if he's going crazy. He say he's feeling trapped, can't even hit up the mall, cause every ladies half dressed, tempting him to lust and fall. He keep the tv off, videos just make him feel, that he ain't really nothing without money, girls, and shiny wheels. The other day he told me, that he felt less a man cause he ain't got a five year plan, or a piece of land. And man it's crazy cause his family thinks so much of him. Plus he's got a godly wife who's always showing love for him. But he's struggling, even though he talk to me, I tell him what to do but he don't listen when he ought to be. I'm scared for him cause there's people that look up to him, he's got some younger siblings how've been changed by what he's done for them. But is it done for him? Lord don't let it be! If he don't wanna talk to you then, father, hear from me!
Verse 2: God, His condition is worsened, since we were last conversin. I'm with him now, and he ain't doin well, of this I'm certain. He say he trying to trust you, doesn't wanna discust you, but he was in the midst of sinners and did not discuss you. And just today his anxiety's got the best of him. He knows Christ but for hours refuses to rest with Him. He's not the best of men but Lord I know he really loves you. And I can't understand why lately he's not thinking of you! People trust this dude! You could crush this dude! Father he needs more of you, I pray you touch this dude! What can I say to him, I'm determained to pray for him, Father empty and break him, I pray you'll just have your way with him! Cause there's a change in him! And the effects are strong! I pray you'll open up his heart before the next song! And when he gets home, I pray he'll open up the sixty-six book love letter, you wrote, and soak it up! Cause he ain't hearing you, and he aint feeling me! And God I know it's killing You, because it's killing me! And matter of fact, there's something else he's concealing see, the person that i've been praying about is really me!"

I so feel like this man all the time!! Totally not doing as God would want me too! Not always doing bad things, just not doing what's best for God! I pray that God will get ahold of us, and get us to pick up His sixty-six book, love letter, and soak it up! That's what we need!! We need that more then anything!! I'm praying for all my friends out there! That we would continue to go after Him strongly! I'd appreciate your prayers for me as well! Where all in this together! But we've got a mighty God who is on our side too! Praise God!! Sorry this was so long!

Lecrae: Don't Waste Your Life

Another awesome Lecrae song is "Don't Waste Your Life"! Here's a verse from this awesome songs!

"I know a lot of people that are scared they gonna die/Couple of em thinking they'll be livin in the sky/So while I'm here living man I gotta ask why/What am I here for I gotta figure out/Waste my life, no, I gotta make it count/If Christ is real then what am I gonna do about/Everything in Luke 12:15 down to 21/You really gotta go and check it out!
Paul said if Christ ain't ressurected/We wastin our lives/Well that implies that our lifes built around Jesus being alive/Every day livin to try to show the world why/Christ is more then anything you'll ever try/Better then pretty women, and sinnin, and livin to get a minute of any women and men that you admire!
It ain't no lie/We created for Him/Out of the dust, He made us for Him/Elects us and He saves us for Him/Jesus comes and He raises for Him/Magnify the Father, why bother, with something lesser/He made us so we could bless Him/To the world we confess Him/Ressurects Him/So I know I got life/Matter fact better man, I know I got Christ/If you don't see His ways in my days and my nights, you can hit my brakes, you can stop my lights/Dude I lost my rights, lost my life/Forget the money, cars and toss that ice/The cost is Christ/And they can never offer me anything on the planet that'll cost that price!"

Wow...that is just verse one, and the other two verses are great too!! We need to live every minute for Christ and show Him to be the greatest treasure we have! Better then anything in our lives! Better then our friends and family and sports and television and books and relationships and food and clothes and cars and computers and what people think of us and what we look like! He needs to be the most important thing in our lives that everything else follows! Oh how I have failed at this all my life, and always seem to fail at! It is such a hard thing to do, and we just need to keep fighting! We are gonna fail a lot, but we need to keep getting up and continue to fight to make Jesus first, cause if we do, He will satisify our hearts with Him more then any other thing in this world! He is the source of true satisfaction and we need to see that! He can bring us true happiness that nothing else can! Please, Father, help us to see that, and help us to make you the center of our lives!! Praying for all my friends out there!! I know we all struggle with this one! I know I do majorly!!
