First by Lauren Daigle

 

“First” (lyrics)

Before I bring my need
I will bring my heart
Before I lift my cares
I will lift my arms
I wanna know You
I wanna find You
In every season
In every moment
Before I bring my need
I will bring my heart
And seek You

First
I wanna seek You
I wanna seek You
First
I wanna keep You
I wanna keep You
First
More than anything I want, I want You
First

Before I speak a word
Let me hear Your voice
And in the midst of pain
Let me feel Your joy
Ooh, I wanna know You
I wanna find You
In every season
In every moment
Before I speak a word
I will bring my heart
And seek You

First
I wanna seek You
I wanna seek You
First
I wanna keep You
I wanna keep You
First
More than anything I want, I want You
First

You are my treasure and my reward
Let nothing ever come before
You are my treasure and my reward
Let nothing ever come before
I seek You

First

First
I wanna seek You
I wanna seek You
First
I wanna keep You
I wanna keep You
First
More than anything I want, I want You
First
First

A Future Not My Own by Matt Maher

 

“A Future Not My Own” (lyrics)

God slow me down
I’m like a river running
Pressed to the ground
I feel it overcoming
I’m on my knees
I’m incomplete

This is a great unknown
Love is a long and narrow road
Come chase this heart of stone
I need a future not my own

Your spirit groans
Where all my words are ceasing
Can’t do this alone
Lord help my unbelieving
My poverty
I’m incomplete

This is a great unknown
Love is a long and narrow road
Come chase this heart of stone
I need a future not my own
Not my own

We see the start but You see the end
We see in part but Your love sees everything
We plant the seeds but You make them grow
We’re building a house, You’re building a home

This is the great unknown
Love is a long and narrow road
Come chase this heart of stone
I need a future not my own

This world is not my home
I still have miles and miles to go
Come break this heart of stone
I need a future not my ow

Set a Fire

Set a Fire

There’s no place I’d rather be…

I realized that God perfectly planned out my life inĀ the past years. And you know what? I have never been so grateful that I am alive!

Now I was so drawn to the voice of the Lord and I cannot help myself from saying ‘YES’ to His will, even if it means that I have to jump off the cliff again and walk on water like the first time. I am certain that the Lord is with me in this new journey.

I just pray to Him to make this faith of mine even stronger. I lift up myself to Him to help me imitate Him better and be with me in reaching out to the furthest of hearts. It is All about Him and always will be. I am glad that I can partake in this work to show my love for Him. Because more people need to satisfy their longing for LOVE.

My heart burnsĀ only for You, Lord. Make me shout endless praises and bless me with the ability to loveĀ you andĀ other peopleĀ in the best way I can.

You’ve called me to do this and I look forward to seeing more lives being changed in Your name. Jesus you are lovely, set my heart on fire, and to always recognize the privilege of being in Your most holy presence.

I want nothing but You and I want more of You.

I want more of You Jesus!

Staying in love with you Lord will set the world on fire!

God’s Love should become VIRAL!

God's Love should become VIRAL!

I got Chickenpox at 26.

I know what you guys are thinking… i should’ve gotten this sickness when I was a kid but unfortunately I only acquire it now (*laughs).

Kidding aside, I mean seriously speaking at first it didn’t make sense at all. I was supposed to go on a 2 month mission trip to Visayas (my mission area) starting today, but I wasn’t able to go because I got Chickenpox. This illness is highly contagious and easily spreads all over the body and can be really painful. I mean it started as a rash and then after taking my medicine blisters come out from all over. Honestly speaking, my first reaction was to cry. I mean, it hurts so bad and you look horrible with wounds all over and the fact that my plans didn’t turn quite as I expected it to be. I am tempted to question God why He permits this situation to happen in my life at this moment… but I just can’t.

I cry my heart out in excruciating pain while looking at my scars. But His love never fails to enlighten me.

Saying ‘YES’ to the Lord’s will is not an easy thing to do. Sometimes you set out plans for yourself and for other people but still it is His will that matters. Surrendering means leaving your comforts and familiarities. It’s about saying “Yes”, taking that step and actually finding yourself in the uncertain. Saying “Yes” means leaving the perks behind and starting back from the ground. It’s about walking behind the curtain and giving God the spotlight. And doing your stuff excellently in the background. The only thing that matters is that “YES!”

In whatever situation, even in most painful ones, the Lord will call You and there will be countless moments in our lives to say “YES” over and over and over again.

This is not about me, it’s about the God who loves me so much. It’s a first-hand experience of that contagious love of the Lord – when it hits you, you become infected! The effect may seem small at first like a rash but later you’ll realize that it spreads all over your mind, body and soul. It never stops. Sometimes the effect was so great that it sets your heart on fire, setting a fever in you.

Like a chickenpox or to start an epidemic it starts with that one encounter. For all of us, it’s that one encounter with Jesus Christ. Jesus have touched our lives differently. His encounter with one person change the lives of others. Experiencing His love and passing it to a brother or sister to have that same encounter of Christ’s unconditional love. Spreading God’s love should never stop! For His love should become VIRAL!

Spreading an epidemic of God’s love; day to day, person to person, uncontainable, it’s working inside of us. Funny how God reveals his messages sometimes in simple ways other times in the most difficult ones, but the good thing about it is that you’re continuously being reminded by the Lord of who He is. That He is God, He is Love and – wait for it… “He can set the world on fire!”
