I recently heard this song sung live. It's deep. I WANT to live my life this way. To know true compassion. To build bridges and not walls. To dare to see another's point of view. To risk loving. To share the bread of life with honor...and much more. It's real, friends. Let's spend our days the way we want to spend our lives.

{{I then shall live}}

I then shall live as one who's been forgiven.
I'll walk with joy to know my debts are paid.
I know my name is clear before my Father;
I am His child and I am not afraid.
So, greatly pardoned, I'll forgive my brother;
The law of love I gladly will obey.

I then shall live as one who's learned compassion.
I've been so loved, that I'll risk loving too.
I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges;
I'll dare to see another's point of view.
And when relationships demand commitment,
Then I'll be there to care and follow through.

Your Kingdom come around and through and in me;
Your power and glory, let them shine through me.
Your Hallowed Name, O may I bear with honor,
And may Your living Kingdom come in me.
The Bread of Life, O may I share with honor,
And may You feed a hungry world through me.

-Bill and Gloria Gaither

Disturb us, Lord,
When we are too well pleased with ourselves;
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little;
When we have arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord,
When with the abundance of the things we possess
We have lost our thirst for the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity;
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision of the new Heaven to dim.
---Sir Francis Drake 1577

Love this bro of mine so much😍 praise the Lord for sparing our lives tonight! The last words of the song that was playing when we hit keep playing over in my Mind. "You've never failed and you won't start now". I'm so thankful to be a child of a King who will never fail us. Thank you Jesus!

The work of the Lord is not some thing which you outwardly and objectively take up. It is (if it is the true thing) the outworking of love for the Lord and for those who are the objects of His love. That is very simple, but it goes to the heart of things.
T. Austin Sparks.

"God has ventured all in JESUS Christ to save us, now he wants us to venture our all in abandoned confidence in Him." ~Oswald Chambers

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart...

Thou my best thought by day or by night...

Be thou my wisdom and Thou my true word...

Thou and thou only first in my heart...

Be thou my vision oh ruler of ALL
