Sara



I've done every devotional, been every place emotional
Trying to hear a new word from God, and I think it's very odd
That while I attempt to help myself, my Bible sits upon my shelf
with every promise I could ever need

People are getting fit for truth like they're buying a new tailored suit.
Does it fit across the shoulders, does it fade when it gets older?
We throw ideas that aren't in style in the Salvation Army pile
and search for something more to meet our needs.

And the Word was, and the Word is, and the Word will be

I think it's time I rediscover all the ground that I have covered,
like - seek ye first - what a verse.
We are pressed but not crushed, perplexed but don't despair,
we are persecuted but not abandoned.
We are no longer slaves, we are daughters and sons,
and when we are weak we are very strong.
And neither death nor life nor present nor future nor depth nor height
can keep us from the love of Christ.
And the Word I need is the Word that was who put on flesh to dwell with us.
In the beginning...

And the Word was, and the Word is and the Word will be.

Stirling lyrics Tracy. Significance, assurance and hope are only as far away as Jesus. But we often look for them everywhere else. The gospel of Jesus is the one word we really need to hear and heed.

[BTW - sorry its taken me so long to comment on your blog!]

Good thoughts. I need to get back to the basics too!

I like Sarah Groves.

so what is the music like, the style

Tracy said...

I think you would categorize it as folk-pop. but I'm not very good at categorizing music style. I think it is more acoustic in nature rather than highly produced. This Journey is My Own has piano as the main instrument.

Tracy said...

No, I just updated my profile when I changed my picture. My birthday's in March. But I'm impressed you noticed.

Priscilla said...

Aha! My best friend as a child was born in January of the same year. Are you December, then? Denis' birthday is Dec. 21. So, he's got birthday, Christmas and anniversary all in the same month. the rest of the year is pretty blah for him... :o)
