Just When My Hallelujah Was Tired – You Gave Me a New Song

Just when I gave up, He showed up. The God who knows me. The God who loves me. The One who holds the stars up and brings the sun up every morning.
His mercy is new every morning. He has more patience with me than I have with myself.

His ways are higher than mine, His thoughts are higher than mine. He knows the end from the beginning. 

Who is he? Abba Father, Jesus, the One True God, the Alpha and the Omega. My beginning and my end – the King of Kings who calls me his Beloved.

Have you met him yet? 

He knew you before you were born. He knit you together in your mother’s womb. He know the number of the hairs on your head. He cares for you more than the sparrows.

Come to Him, Jesus. 

He is waiting to hold you in His arms and make all the wrong things right. He is the King of Kings and Justice follows him.He knows. He saw. He will take care if it. 

Just come to the table of grace. 

Release your cares and your hurts – to Him.Be healed and made whole in Jesus Name.

Be still and know I AM.

Abba’s Love

This song started from a picture on a Facebook post from a fellow traveller. I still have to come up with some chords and a melody, but here are the lyrics. Here is the picture and the post -“Write the saddest story using only 4 words”

 

How about it?

Abba’s Love

-Copyright 2016 Diana Rasmussen

Grief echoes like broken windows

In her abandoned heart

Sulking in the darkness

she doesn’t know where to start

 
She’s not sure how to move on

Fears whisper in the wind

Ever since he left this world

and crossed over to the next

 

That’s where the Light breaks through

All the shadows of darkness flee

Abba’s love makes all things new

Abba’s love makes all things new

 
She crawls out of the corner

Leaving behind the despair

One touch from Abba

gave her strength to stand

 
She walks freely through the doorway

into her destiny

The ugly past behind her

Her future’s brighter and secure

 
That’s where the Light breaks through

All the shadows of darkness flee

Abba’s love makes all things new

Abba’s love makes all things new

 

Surrounded by love

Surrounded by mercy

Surrounded by peace

She lifts up her head

 
That’s where the Light breaks through

All the shadows of darkness flee

Abba’s love makes all things new

Abba’s love makes all things new

 

 

  •  For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.  The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again;rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.  And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”  The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. – Romans 8:14-17 NIV

Hallelujah I’m Still Human

Hallelujah I’m still human! Yippee! This living stuff is messy sometimes. There are fights and failings, trials, tribulations, and just plain fumbling around. I’m sure glad God is patient with us and loves us in spite of our messy faces!I’m the middle of my little mess I look up to Daddy God and cry, “Abba, Father!” And He smiles at me as I run into his arms.\

This is the day the Lord has made;We will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24

I love this song. It keeps me humble and real. Love ya! Diana

THIS IS THE STUFF

by Francesca Battistelli

I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please
‘Cause I can’t find my phone

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that’s getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed

This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I’ve gotta trust you know exactly what You’re doing
Might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

45 in a 35
Sirens and fines
While I’m running behind

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that’s getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed

This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I’ve gotta trust you know exactly what You’re doing
Might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

To break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I’ve got a new appreciation
It’s not the end of the world

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff, someone save me
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed

This is the stuff that gets under my skin
And I’ve gotta trust You know exactly what You’re doing
Might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use
This is the stuff You use

Water – Splashing Around with Daddy God

Water

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

This longing inside I just can’t hide
I hunger and thirst for your love deep inside
Let’s smile and laugh until the sun goes down
Let’s play, pick me up daddy please

I dive in your mercy
I jump in your grace
I’m splashing around till I see
The water on your face
Water that flows
Water that races
Water that fills
every empty place

Pick me up, put me up on Your shoulders
Daddy God I need You to hold me closer
Take me in Your arms, spin me around
Let’s play and never let me go

I dive in your mercy
I jump in your grace
I’m splashing around till I see
The water on your face
Water that flows
Water that races
Water that fills
every empty place

“Yet hear now, O Jacob My servant,
And Israel whom I have chosen.
Thus says the Lord who made you
And formed you from the womb, who will help you:
‘Fear not, O Jacob My servant;
And you, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.
For I will pour water on him who is thirsty,
And floods on the dry ground;
I will pour My Spirit on your descendants,
And My blessing on your offspring;
They will spring up among the grass
Like willows by the watercourses.’
One will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’;
Another will call himself by the name of Jacob;
Another will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’
And name himself by the name of Israel.” (Isaiah 44:1-4 NKJV

You Are the Beloved Dreamer

“Silent solitude makes true speech possible and personal.

If I am not in touch with my own belovedness,

then I cannot touch the sacredness of others.

If I am estranged from myself,

I am likewise a stranger to others.”

Brennan Manning (Abba’s Child: The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging)
