grace finds goodness in everything

The song can also be interpreted as a personification of God’s grace.

The central character in this song is Grace. Through the song her inner emotions are juxtaposed with how she appears from the outside. Lines like “She carries a pearl in perfect condition” and “when she walks on the street, You can hear the strings, Grace finds goodness in everything” refers to how she is perceived by others. However she holds a lot of emotion and pain on the inside as shown in the lines, “she covers the shame” and “she carries a world on her hips, No champagne flute for her lips, No twirls or skips between her fingertips.” She appears so beautiful to the world and so caring because she holds all the sadness on the inside, where other people don’t see it. Through the song she appears as a solitary person, this is the result of her holding all emotion on the inside, effectively isolating herself. By doing this she makes herself very lonely in her suffering. The line, “she covers the shame,” refers to something in her past that she must hide. Her outer beauty helps to cover a tragic past.

Faith is the substance of the things

Things hoped for

It is the heaven dance

Of things not seen

Don’t you know

I have the faith

To conquer anything

Keep the faith

Don Moen – God Will Make a way :)

Ooooh! How I love this song…. it reminisces me of the time we used to sing and play this together :)….. esp… line marked (1) :D…. yo! He will do somethjin new.. todayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy…yu hu…. 🙂


God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me

He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way
[slow down.. here it slows down… :)]
By a roadway in the wilderness
He’ll lead meRivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today…… (1)
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way

OKay…. here’s d video for u…. its awesome 🙂

Lyrics for God is good all the time :
Chorus:

God is good all the time
He put a song of praise in this heart of mine
God is good all the time
Through the darkest night, His light will shine
God is good, God is good all the time

If you’re walking through the valley
And there are shadows all aroundDo not fear,
He will guide you
He will keep you safe and sound’Cause
He’s promised to never leave you
Nor forsake you and His Word is true
Chorus
We were sinners – so unworthy
Still for us
He chose to die
Filled us with His Holy Spirit
Now we can stand and testify
That His love is everlasting
And His mercies – they will never end
Chorus

Live Life with Gratitude

A BEAUTIFUL verse in the Puranas (epics) says:
Ananda (Bliss) attracts fortune.
Even modern day psychologists say that if our mind is blissful, we attract happy people, happy situations around us. If we are sad and depressed, we attract unhappy people and sad incidents/Our being is like a dish antenna.
If we tune ourselves to joy, we attract bliss; if we tune ourselves to depression, we attract suffering and pain.When we are blissful and deeply grateful, we are showered with more and more. In life, we are not just given what we need; we are actually showered. However, if we don’t understand this, however much we are showered with, we will remain dissatisfied.A small story:
A King saw a small boy beg for alms at the palace gates. He felt pity on him and asked him to stay in the palace for a few days. The boy was expecting a royal room with servants waiting on him but it was not so. The next morning, the boy expressed his dissatisfaction to the King about the room and other things. The King was furious with the boy and ordered his guards to throw him out.The boy met a Sufi Master and told him all that had happened. The Master asked the boy to disguise himself and accompany him back the King’s palace. On reaching the palace, the King invited the Master and the boy to stay in the palace for few days. The Master profusely thanked the King for the offer. He was given the same room the boy had been given earlier. The next morning, the Master expressed deep gratitude to the King for giving him all the possible comforts. The King was overjoyed and handed the Master a thousand gold coins and offered him the guest room to stay in for as long as he wished to.
The Sufi Master thanked the King again and went on his way.From this story you see how our attitude towards life makes a difference. The Sufi Master was deeply grateful for whatever he was given, so he was showered with more whereas the boy was dissatisfied with what was given to him and hence he was chased away.
When you live with an attitude of gratitude to existence for all that it showers you with, you will enjoy life and live it to the fullest.Be Blissful!
