Wings Of Truth
Whens my time to fly from here
When can I run from all my fears
Lord I don’t think I can hold much longer
But I know you will make me stronger
Lord I know your always near
Youre right there to wipe away my tears
So let me live for you
Let my life lead to You
Hide me in your wings of truth
Let everything about me bow to you
Lord let these praises bring you glory
Let my heart tell Your story
Let the rocks cry out To praise your name
Hallelujah to the Father
Lord I know Im in your thoughts and plans
So I thank you for the comfort I find in your hands
Please help me do the best I can
To show the world, that you really care
This song really....hits me hard. I think about leaving home and going to college and going out on my own for missions. its a scary thing doing this on my own. I keep thinking how its hard and how i'm alone but i remember..i'm not. God is here with me. I'm never alone. I've asked him to be my personal Lord and savior and He is forever in my heart. I feared going away from home and being out on my own and just...how could i do it. Fears of financial problems and just...i let everything be a fear. But i had to let it go. Put it aside and just listen to Him, Jump and he will catch me and carry me. He will make me stronger reminds me of my favorite passage: "I can do all thing through HIM who gives me strength" Philippians 4:13, also knowing he is always near...when i call upon his name he is near and i know that. "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13 also " For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Mathew 18:20
Living for Christ...wow.. is that not what we are called to do??? like seriously whats the point of being a Christian? If you go by the name Christian then you go by Christ. Don't proclaim that name unless you live up to it. The first 6 letters spell CHRIST!! Do you not see that! wow. to live as Christ, well we were made in God's image "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them" Gen. 1:27. We were not made as God and are sinful. But we to strive to be like His Son. and not just in good deeds but with heart. If what your doing isn't for the right reason and for HIM and HIS kingdom then why are you doing it? If i'm living for God my life should reflect that. not just through my church attendance and what i'm all involved with.. thats not the point. My life should be to lead others to Christ. being at The Baptist College of Florida i feel i'm in His presence, or how Nate explained it "Under his Wing." BCF holds truth. when Christ walked the earth people stood to hear him speak. People went to temple everyday to hear about God and to praise Him. But now...we seek worldly desires and false idols and false religions. There is one right way. sorry to break it to you but your wrong. there is a heavenly father who created you out of love and watches out for you and desires to love you and be loved. He offers eternal life in Heaven but its your choice not to accept. But at BCF it reminds me of old days. we all gather to study HIS word and HIS law.Truth is all around us.
"let my heart tell your story" WOW yet again...my heart should be for HIM, why am i not in love with him as he is in love with me??? We talk about those who we love the most..if i love HIM why am i not talking about Him with people?? Can you say Convicting!!! the last for lines...need i say anything. That just..wow. exactly what my heart has been saying. This song..has really hit me hard. I wish you could hear it with the music. Its even more beautiful. But i think the words themselves do enough to just tell me that i've been slacking which i know and can feel. this song...wow. really has hit my heart and broke me down. i hope you like it.
