Reach You Where You Are
I wrote this song just days after the Virginia tech. Tragedy. Like all of us, I was so shocked and sadden by yet another school shooting which would take the life of so many in such a random and senseless act of violence. My heart went out to the family and friends of the loved ones lost in the tragedy and I only wish I could have reached some of the people grieving and given them hope. My intention was to write this song, put it on a CD, and fly to Virginia Tech to give the song away to as many as possible, in an attempt to bring some comfort and peace to the mourners. I never made it out there but, the song was written and eventually recorded and I still believe that it will reach the ones it was intended for in the first place and that it will, in addition to that, reach those going through their own personal trials and tragedies.
Help Me Stand
Alexander Hamilton said: “Those Who Stand For Nothing, Fall For Anything". So true and especially when it comes to our Christian walk. The cool thing about standing as believers is that we don’t stand for “something” but for “someone” and that someone is God Himself. We can’t pride ourselves in the fact that we stand up for God because truly He is the one who allows us to stand for Him. The bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:12 “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” You see, we are all prone to fall and left to ourselves, it is only a matter of time before we do fall. We desperately need God’s help. The longer we walk with Jesus, the easier it is to see that we cannot stand on our own. The song “Help me stand” is a plea for God to help me stand in a world where everyone seems to fall.
For those who desire to stand, here are a couple of really good verses:
Jude 24 “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy”.
Rom. 14:4 “Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand”.
