You’re Brand New Now…Ya Gotta Let Go Of Your Past!!

Standard

Isaiah 43:18-19

“Forget the former things;

do not dwell on the past. 

See, I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up;

do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the dessert

and streams in the wasteland.”

Brand new!!

Is that person in the mirror looking back at you?

It’s true!

But, you can’t see it…

‘Cause you’re stuck on what you’ve been through…

You got that white knuckle, red faced…

Kung fu grip on all your chains..

But, that’s not who are…

I’m here to let you know…

You gotta let it go…

You were made for something more…

So, come on…

And let it go!!

Tell me why…

You’d think that you deserve a life of just getting by…

You are alive!!!

Stop taking flowers to the grave of the old you that died…

If God can take your sin and free ya…

Forget, just like amnesia…

Why are you holding on?

I’m here to let you know…

You gotta let it go…

You were made for something more…

So, come on…

And let it go!!

Let it go!

Easter Version of “Hallelujah”

Standard

Kelley Mooney’s approved spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

Be Blessed on this Resurrection Day!!

4-20-14 Easter 024

A crown of thorns placed on His head
He knew that He would soon be dead
He said did You forget Me Father, did You?
They nailed Him to a wooden cross
Soon all the world would feel the loss
Of Christ the King before His Hallelujah

Hallelujah

He hung His head and prepared to die
Then lifted His face up to the sky
Said I am coming home now Father to You
A reed which held His final sip
Was gently lifted to His lips
He drank His last and gave His soul to glory

Hallelujah

The soldier who had used his sword
To pierce the body of our Lord
Said truly this is Jesus Christ our Savior
He looked with fear upon his sword
Then turned to face his Christ and Lord
Fell to his knees crying Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Took from His head the thorny crown
And wrapped Him in a linen gown
And laid Him down to rest inside the tomb
The holes in His hands, His feet and side
Now in our hearts we know He died
To save us from ourselves, Oh, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Three days went by, again they came
To move the stone, to bless the slain
With oil and spice anointing, Hallelujah
But as they went to move the stone
They saw that they were not alone
But Jesus Christ has risen, Hallelujah

Hallelujah!

Amen!

I Know My Redeemer Lives…I Spoke With Him This Morning!!

Standard

Psalm 19:14

“May these words of my mouth

and this meditation of my heart   

be pleasing in Your sight,   

Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 027

Jesus,

You are my Redeemer

You have paid the price

You have delivered us from bondage

You have set things right!

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?

And who told the ocean you can only come this far?

And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?

Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well, I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

All of creation testifies

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 068

This life within me cries

I know my Redeemer lives

The very same God

That spins things in orbit

Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak

And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken

They conquered death to bring me victory

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 071

Now I know, my Redeemer lives

He lives

To take away my shame

And He lives

Forever I’ll proclaim

That the payment for my sins

Was the precious life He gave

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 096

And now He’s alive and

There’s an empty grave!

I know, that I know, that I know, that I know, that I know

He lives

My Redeemer lives

Because He lives I can face tomorrow

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 114

He lives

I know, I know

He lives 

I spoke with Him this morning!

He lives

The tomb is empty

He Lives!

I’m going to tell everybody!!

Job 38

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said…

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?  

…Who shut up the sea behind doors…when I said,

‘This far you may come and no farther”…

    …Have you ever given orders to the morning,

or shown the dawn its place,

…Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea  

or walked in the recesses of the deep?

…Have the gates of death been shown to you?

Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?

Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?   

Tell me, if you know all this.

  …Can you raise your voice to the clouds

    and cover yourself with a flood of water?

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?   

Do they report to you,

‘Here we are’?

Who provides food for the raven   

when its young cry out to God   

and wander about for lack of food?”

1 Peter 2:21-25

“To this you were called,

because Christ suffered for you,

leaving you an example,

that you should follow in His steps.

 ‘He committed no sin,   

and no deceit was found in His mouth.

When they hurled their insults at Him,

He did not retaliate;

when He suffered,

He made no threats.

Instead,

He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly.

‘He Himself bore our sins’

in His body on the Cross,

so that we might die to sins

and live for righteousness;

‘by His wounds you have been healed.”

For ‘you were like sheep going astray,

but now you have returned to the

Shepherd and Overseer

of your souls.”
