First week of school

Well a week has gone by and I have survived. I'm currently taking Database, International Business, Employee Relations, and Visual Basic.NET. Just pray that I use the time that I have on campus to glorify God and to tell classmates about Jesus. Um, no new songs are coming out yet, but I'm thinking about teaming up with a friend and perhaps performing my song at a coffee house we're having a week from Thursday. Well, I think that's about it. I'll see you guys later, all 5-10 of you that actually read this. Peace and God Bless.

Real

This song is about how real God is to me, thus the title.

Surrounded. Covered in your love.
I'm speechless.
Soaking in Your presence.
I'm trying to explain
What my heart cannot contain
The beauty of your glory,
The most amazing story
Of Jesus who set me free.

Chorus:
I can see You
When I get on My knees
I can hear you on the evening breeze.
I can feel you when I lift up my hands.
Lord you are so real to Me.

(insert face-melting guitar solo here)

You are real (3x)
Reveal Yourself to Me

Picture of me

Because you love me

This is ta new song that started on the way back to the hotel from a main session at Passion 07. When I got back to the hotel, I pulled out my notebook and wrote it furiously on the paper. Verse 1 has been edited slightly and Verse 2 is brand new, but the chorus has remained intact since that glorious evening.

Because You love me,
You hold me,
You call me your own.
Because You say that I can be seated at Your throne.

I will love You forever, for all of my days.
And I will follow You always in all of Your ways.

Verse 1:

I am filled by Your presence
I am humbled by your radiance
Your grace overflows my soul
I wanna spread Your word
I wanna make it heard.
I wanna show the world what you've done to me.

Bridge:

I'll never be like I was before
Because I know my God is knocking at the door.
I don't wanna go back
Don't wanna relive my past
I just want to live for You

Chorus

Verse 2:

You show up each morning
When I put Your Word before me
My heart begins to shout.
When I'm before You each day
And I trust and obey,
I come to learn what life is all about.

Bridge
Chorus
