MARK FARNER: I’m Your Captain (Closer To Home – 1970) 2011 LiVE

From: Songfacts — Mark Farner (ex-Grand Funk)

Songfacts: How did you come up with that song? It seems so unusual – so long and it changes gears in the middle.

Farner: Initially the song came to me after I said my prayers one night and I put a P.S. on the end of my prayers. I asked God to give me a song that would touch the hearts of people that the Creator wanted to get to. I got up at 3 o’clock in the morning – I’m always getting up at different times of the night and writing things down. A lot of them are not songs but this happened to be one.

I got up and I wrote it, and as I’m writing it, I’m between the state of subconscious and conscious. I’ve got one foot in dreamland and my pen is writing these words down. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense. It was kind of weird, I thought, as I was writing it. I didn’t sit there on the edge of the bed and read it over and over, I just wrote it down, and when I got to the end of it, I just folded it over and put it on the nightstand. There it was.

Well, in the morning, I got up, I was drinking my coffee, I was looking at the horses out in the pasture, and I got my feet kicked up. I thought, I’ll grab my flattop here. I had an acoustic George Washburn, a resonant guitar from my kitchen – everybody would grab it when they came here. I started playing. Wow, that’s nice, what the heck is that? Then I made that C chord. I made a mistake. I was going for the G and it was a little short and I hit the C. And I looked down because that chord spoke to me in such a way. I’ve never heard that come out, that inversion of the C. I thought, Wow, that’s a cool chord. Then I thought maybe with those words in the other room, maybe that’s a song, so I grabbed the legal pad and laid it down on the table next to my coffee and I just started strumming. “Everybody…” And it just started coming out. …

Petra: ‘Let Everything That Hath Breath’ (Praise the Lord)

I became a Christian in 1974 while reading the Paul and Silas jailer story in Acts 16 mentioned in this song. It was clear to me they had what I wanted. I was trying to find the true source of being able to love others — the one true religion that worked, which I hadn’t found while studying in the Lutheran school system K-12. While in my senior year, I don’t know why, but I decided to start reading the Bible in Acts 1, which I still think is a great place to start.

– –

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord
Let every creature under God’s sun praise the Lord
Let all the mountains, let all the valleys
Let all the hillsides sing of His glory
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord

Israel had a war to fight but the Lord showed them the secret
He said the battle this day is mine, but you must listen how to do it
Put your singers first in front of the rest
Let them praise and sing to me
And you will see the salvation of your God
And watch your enemies flee

Paul and Silas were thrown in jail
For preaching the gospel of Christ
Though in chains they praised His name singing songs in the night
Just then an earthquake shook the place and the chains and the doors were loosened
Then the jailer ran in scared to death and that day he found salvation

Daniel Rodriguez: ‘I’ll Walk with God’ — “I’ll never walk alone while I walk with God”

I’ll Walk with God from this day on.
His helping hand I’ll lean upon.
This is my prayer, my humble plea,
May the Lord be ever with me.

There is no death, tho’ eyes grow dim.
There is no fear when I’m near to Him.
I’ll lean on Him forever
And He’ll forsake me never.

He will not fail me
As long as my faith is strong,
Whatever road I may walk along.

I’ll Walk with God, I’ll take His hand.
I’ll talk with God, He’ll understand.
I’ll pray to Him, each day to Him
And He’ll hear the words that I say.

His hand will guide my throne and rod
And I’ll never walk alone
While I walk with God.

DJ Miko: ‘What’s Up?’ 4 Non Blondes Remix – Demon Kicker!

One of my favorite kick-demon-butt songs, which I heard on the radio one time only, while visiting Nashville, Tennessee, while renting a blue Eagle Talon. I pulled over to focus on the song, which I then tracked down as DJ Miko’s remix of the famous 4 Non Blondes’ song.

Put on THE WHOLE ARMOR of God, that you may be ABLE TO STAND AGAINST the wiles of the devil. 12 For OUR WRESTLING is NOT AGAINST FLESH and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the SPIRITUAL FORCES OF WICKEDNESS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES. … Stand therefore … with all prayer and requests, PRAYING AT ALL TIMES IN THE SPIRIT, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints…. (Eph. 6:11-18)

(vid) Peggy Hall: Encouragement In This Fight Against Evil

Encouraging word from Peggy Hall — unbothered by the haters and shamers!

“I encourage people to not care what other people think. It doesn’t matter what other people think. It only matters what God thinks. … It only matters what rings true for you.”

Peggy loves and quotes Psalm 27:

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.

(6 min vid) “I will NOT forgive IF they don’t repent” — Dead to this world – No place for resentment in the heart of a Christian

Best 6-minute summary I’ve ever seen. George nails it!

– –

SHOULD WE FORGIVE IF THEY DON’T REPENT?

Some Christians say that if a brother does not repent, if they don’t come back to say they are sorry, we should not forgive them. They use the passage when Jesus said “Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.” (Matthew 18:15)

Dear brothers and sisters, a true Christian is a dead man to the world. They don’t keep record of wrong, they don’t care about their pride and their ego. They don’t care about being treated unjustly because they are dead to this world.

The passage that speaks about confronting our brother who sins against us in Matthew 18 is about a fellowship setting. If we are in fellowship together as brothers and sisters, we need to brings everything out into the open. We need to rebuke, correct each other but IN LOVE. This is because we need to stay in one accord and to walk together, we need to agree together.

However that doesn’t mean that we should not forgive anyone who has wronged us even if they don’t repent, not only Christians but also unbelievers.

When Jesus was on the cross, He said: FORGIVE THEM because they know not what they do. The people who crucified Him did not repent prior to Jesus saying that. The same with Stephen when he was being stoned, he said: “don’t lay this to their charge”.

There is no place for resentment in the heart of a Christian. We need to forgive everyone and for anything. We need to trust Jesus to deliver righteous judgment when we will stand before Him. He will repay, it is not up to us to repay.

May God bless you

(music vid) Paul Clark: ‘Abide’ — “Your words are truth and life to me / It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide”

Abide (Paul Clark)

The more I go on with you Lord
I find that I cannot afford
To stay away from your side
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

Your words are truth and life to me
They cleanse and sanctify me
I know it’s power can’t be denied
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

A child of God I know I am
I’ve been washed in the precious blood of the Lamb
But I haven’t touched the hole in His side
But in the vine I’ll Abide

To bring forth fruit this is my aim
And give the glory to Your name
To do the same you must decide
If in the Vine you’ll Abide

Jesus is the Vine
