Song: Holy Spirit descend on me

>> Click here to play video

Holy Spirit descend on me
And fill my heart with Your eternal fire
and love divine.
And strengthen my faith once more
And open my eyes.
Give me the light of Your love that I
may shine on all I find.

Come and teach me Your ways, O Lord,
And open my mind so that I can see
the way ahead.
Take all of the mist away
And make the road clear.
Keeping me strong through the trials I face,
my faults, my doubts, my fear.

Fire within my heart,
Fire within my soul,
Fire to take me anywhere I have to go.

I surrender my all to You
The gift of Your love and Your grace are all
I ever need.
Let Your passion burn in me
And let me stand tall.
Give me the mind and the skill to speak
Your word to one and all.

Fire within my heart,
Fire within my soul,
Fire to take me anywhere I have to go.

So I stand here prepared, my  Lord,
You wash away all of my doubt and fear
and take control.
You cleanse me and make me new
And I am restored.
Fill me with power and the strength to do
Your will for evermore.

April 3rd (from the Coronavirus Journal)

In this beautiful world (click below to listen)

In this beautiful world we care for nought
We do not do the things we know we ought
We have one planet, that is all.

In our arrogant ways, we think we are above
Mother Nature’s Laws that are from God above
We bring destruction on ourselves.

Now there’s an enemy we can’t see
It’s so small.
Yet so powerful and mighty it be,
A reminder that we
Are not rulers at all,
Our position in this universe is really quite small.

We’ve been given this world in which to live,
Some just take what they can, while others give
If we’re divided, then we fall.

Now there’s an enemy we can’t see
It’s so small.
Yet so powerful and mighty it be,
A reminder that we
Are not rulers at all,
Our position in this universe is really quite small.

Let’s consider it all, there’s only one
The Ruler of all is God alone
He is beside us through it all.

He brings salvation to us all.

Inspired by:

(1) the damage humans are doing to the planet;
(2) the coronavirus – reminding us we are not as powerful as we think we are;
(3) 2 Corinthians 4:16-18   “So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.”
