Lyrics to song “Forever United” by artist Your Memorial.

Lyrics:
“Separated, we all feel this inside our souls
The Fall, displaced us from our union with God, trading true relationship for our desires

We need restoration

Once living without hope
Now brought near by the blood
Mercy for the unworthy
By death on a cross
Transcending flesh and bone
Built on the cornerstone
No longer strangers
Restored to our Maker

Forever united

We long for redemption
To be whole again
Now living stones join together
Rise in freedom

We have a new life in Him
We will remain ’til the end

Eternal, a kingdom safe from danger
Foundation, not built by human hands

This is our redemption

Once living without hope
Now brought near by the blood
Mercy for the unworthy
By death on a cross
Transcending flesh and bone
Built on the cornerstone
No longer strangers
Restored to our maker

Our prideful souls
Resisting to be fully known
Peace floods the heart
As hopeful light expels the dark
Transcending flesh and bone
Built on the cornerstone
No longer strangers
Restored to our Maker

Forever united”

Lyrics to song “Redirect” by artist Your Memorial.

Lyrics to song “Redirect” by artist Your Memorial.

Lyrics:
“For so long I´ve lived my life
as if it were my own,
Rarely did I ever think of You
or that You could ever change me,
My eyes were too blind to see

Your thoughts are not like mine,
Your ways extend
outside the lines of space and time,
redirect my steps towards Your light

Eyes open [3x]

Now I´m beginning to see
this narrow path You have
laid out before me,
I know many are called
but few will answer,
Thank You, Oh Lord!
for reaching down to me

Your thoughts are not like mine,
Your ways extend
outside the lines of space and time,
redirect my steps towards Your light

SHINE THROUGH ME [3x]

That moment
when You stepped in,
The encounter, the day
I turned and ran to You

Your thoughts are not like mine,
Your ways extend
outside the lines of space and time,
redirect my steps towards Your light

I will give thanks
through my walk
and through my faith,
My life is Yours, You set the pace,
You are worthy of all my praise”

O my Savior, help me …

“O my Savior, help me.
I am so slow to learn, so prone to forget, so weak to climb;
I am in the foothills when I should be on the heights;
I am pained by my graceless heart,
my prayerless days,
my poverty of love,
my sloth in the heavenly race,
my sullied conscience,
my wasted hours,
my unspent opportunities.
I am blind while light shines around me:
take the scales from my eyes . . .
Make it my chief joy to study Thee,
meditate on Thee, gaze on Thee,
sit like Mary at Thy feet,
lean like John on Thy breast,
appeal like Peter to Thy love,
count like Paul all things dung . . .
Let not faith cease from seeking Thee
until it vanishes into sight.
Ride forth in me, thou King of kings and Lord of lords,
that I may live victoriously, and in victory attain my end.
Old Puritan prayer

He[Jesus] came to …

“He[Jesus] came . . .
To comfort all that mourn . . .
To give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness
(Isaiah 61:2-3, KJV)
He has taken away our susceptibility to a debilitating, long-term “spirit of heaviness.”
“Do not let your hearts be troubled,” He said (John 14:27). He wasn’t saying, “There, there.” He was saying, “Don’t allow it! It’s bad for you.””

-from p.39 of “Fix Your Eyes On Jesus” by Anne Ortlund.

If your depression, your sadness, is longer than brief …

“If your depression, your sadness, is longer than brief, it starts to become your very dangerous enemy.
Many people don’t realize what a threat sadness is — and any danger which is unrecognized as a danger is all the more dangerous. There is no stigma against sadness. There is no embarrassment, no alarm, no rushing to the Lord to eliminate it.
But God’s Word says, “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).
And when a Christian is sad — whether he realizes it or not, his power is diminished and he’s vulnerable.
A country that has internal unrest is the least able to resist any threatening foreign power. And a believer with sadness inside is the least able to resist any attack of Satan.
Depression is a sinister “fifth column” at work within the Christian community.”

-from p.38 of “Fix Your Eyes On Jesus” by Anne Ortlund.
