This is who I am I’ll walk out this Kingdom not as a duty but an honor Now called a son, I’ve been set free from the slavery of sin And when I fall, I stand in the face of darkness and I say, “This is who I am” My father has freed my past, present, and future He doesn’t see what I see, He doesn’t see what you see He sees my destiny and calls me to be a son
This is who I am in the midst of a firefight, You’ve called me a son. This is who I am by the power of the risen death and what You have done This is who I am all I’ve been and who I’ve become This is who I am, who I am I’m a son!
"Some of you need to hear this for the first time, and so this is from our hearts…
The Kingdom of God is for the burnouts, the broken, and the broke.
The drug addicts, the divorced, the HIV positive, the herpes-ridden, the hopeless.
For the outcasts that have been created by the church,
And for the outcasts of our society that have been created by us.
The Kingdom of God is for the brain damaged, the incurably ill, for the barren.
For the pregnant too many times, and the pregnant at the wrong time.
This is for the over-employed, the underemployed, the unemployable, and the unemployed.
This is for the swindled, the shoved aside, the left aside.
The replaced, the incompetent, and the stupid.
This is for the emotionally starved and the emotionally dead.
The Kingdom of God is for the bigoted, the murderers, the child molesters, the brutals, the drug lords.
The terrorists, the perverted, the raging alcoholics, over consumers, the incredibly ugly.
The dumb, the ignorant, the starving, the filled, and the filthy rich.
The Kingdom of God is for everyone and the Kingdom of God is for me."
“Your love has ravished my heart. And taken me over, taken me over. And all I want is to be. With You forever, with You forever.
Pull me a little closer. Take me a little deeper. I want to know Your heart. I want to know Your heart. ‘Cause Your love is so much sweeter. Than anything I’ve tasted. I want to know Your heart. I want to know Your heart.
Whoa, whoa, how great Your love is for me. Whoa, whoa, how great is Your love.
Pull me a little closer. Take me a little deeper. I want to know Your heart. I want to know Your heart. ‘Cause Your love is so much stronger. Than anything I’ve faced and I want to know Your heart. I want to know Your heart.”
I was afraid Your love sent me free I was in debt You paid the price for me I was hurt You took away my pain I was alone until You called my name I was broken and You mended me Before I was You loved me You healed my body and You made me whole No matter what I do You don’t let go
I will sing to the King, I am the ransomed one How I love Your holy name Holy to the Lamb who was slain When I laugh and when I cry You are the reason why How I long to be with You Forever and a day, forever and a day
When I go to bed, You are near When I wake up, You are there When I call Your name, You are here When I walk in faith, You’re everywhere You catch and save every tear I cry You journal everyday all about my life Your love for me reaches to the sky I am Yours, You are mine
I was ashamed, You called me beautiful And now I’m Yours, You call me beautiful I was ashamed You called me beautiful But now I’m Yours, You call me beautiful
“I will not surrender to the power of darkness” - Sleeping Giant.
God is giving me victory over depression. I am no longer have to go through every day feeling defeated, because I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me (Romans 8:37). I have realized that the enemy wants me to accept defeat, but I can fight, and I can have victory in Christ. I am not giving up. I was disarmed with fear and sadness, but no longer. I am picking up the sword of truth and standing in praise to overcome this battle. I will worship. I do not have to give in, I can rise up in the joy of the Lord. That will be my strength in weakness. Joy is not just a feeling; it is Christ in me. He is my joy and He is my strength. He is victory.
I was like a dead person in my depression: it shut me down, it paralyzed me, it put me to sleep.
But a resurrection has come.
“Awake, oh sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you!” (Ephesians 5:14). My eyes are wide open; I’m awake. And I will not surrender to the power of the darkness! Christ shines on me. I will rise in His light.
“In the face of suffering and pain, the Lord, our justice is One. As Hell postures itself like it still reigns, the peace of Heaven will come. I am a child of God, I see all these things- I’m broken. The Lord, our justice is One. I bow my head to the King in submission as His words are spoken.The peace of Heaven reigns, salvation is our banner. I will not surrender to the power of darkness! All my fear has vanished in the presence of Heaven. Can you feel the fire- the fire in my heart? I see dead men walking, I can’t help but prophesy. Life- to the dead you will rise again. Life- to the power of Hell- it can’t have you, my Kingdom is stronger! Fight, you must fight!
I know the weight of all the fear in life. I know its easier to fade and die. But can I tell you what it is you don’t see? There was a King who came and gave His life, for all the broken ones like you and I. It’s in His sacrifice I trust and believe.
Can you feel the fire- the fire in my heart? We are dead men walking, we were born to prophesy! In the face of all Hell- Watch the dead live again! All in the Kingdom are redeemed from the curse with a story to tell- Watch the dead live again! Bringing salvation to all of the hurting, abandoned, and used- Watch the dead live again! All of the nations stare in amazement to watch what we do. The peace of Heaven reigns, salvation is our banner.
As we dance, can you feel the Earth shake? Glory! Can you feel the glory? Glory fall- can you feel the glory of God? Our praise, we dance before the host of Heaven. All that I need is Your presence, so let Your glory fall. Your Holy name can save us, so let Your glory fall!”
This Loneliness Won’t Be The Death of Me | Being As An Ocean
So tired, so tired of showing Love so deep That most aren’t even willing to feel See what I’ve seen Open your eyes and recognize that this is real This season brings darkness so profound I’ve become lost and can’t seem to be found Contorted, racked with pain I know should feel free, yet I continue to sing this sad refrain I can’t sleep and food has lost its taste GOD, I’M SO SICK OF THIS PLACE
