I’ll be home for Christmas

Posted in Holiday with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2009 by rylanreed

I’ll be home for Christmas, and definitely not in my dreams, but actually there! I am sure getting excited for Christmas:) Even those here in South Africa are getting excited, with all the decorations they have in the malls.  But they don’t have Thanksgiving, so the only thing they can look forward to is seeing red and green and white, but probably not, only in their lights:)

Came to my rescue

Come to my rescue

Falling on my knees in worship

Giving all I am to seek your face

Lord, all I am is yours

My whole life I place in Your hands

God of mercy humbled I bow down

In Your presence at Your throne

I called, You answered

And you came to my rescue and I,

I want to be where You are

In my life be lifted high

In our world be lifted high

In our love be lifted high

I do like this song, but some people could look at this as a song singing about us and not fully about God and Jesus Christ. It is tough though to figure out what exactly are biblical songs that are directed at God and not focused too much on us as humans.  This song still has a good message to it, even though it might be skewed in the focus of the song.  The part I am mostly focusing on is the chorus, where it says “I called, You answered; And you came to my rescue and I, I want to be where You are.” God did come to our rescue and we should want to be where He is, but us calling Him is something I don’t believe is true.  No one is going around saying “Hey God, I’m here! Help me out!” Usually, we rebell and want to do our own thing. It is not until the Holy Spirit come’s upon us and puts the regreat of what we just did.  God called us, those that are His children and the elect.  Our sinful natures did nothing before God sprouted a response in our soul.

This is how I think that part should go: “You called, I answered; And you came to my rescue and I, I want to be where You are.”  Another thing with the song, is a lot of times Christians just sing it and never really think to understand what they are saying.  “Falling on our knees; giving all we are; all we are is His; whole life in His hands; humbled we bow down; Life, world, love, God should be lifted high”.  These things are huge in someone’s life, becuase of how much we want to be able to control somethings.  We should be giving our alls to Him, and I even know of myself that I don’t do it all the time, but we need to keep that thinking constantly in our minds and ask God for help as well.

The National Anthem ~ Veterans day

This is the first video I saw of the four girls from Lubbock, Texas and was amazed by their harmony. This is great, at a Texas Tech Basketball game:

A good video of how the girls think of the different songs they sing:

Also, Happy Veterans day.  Thanks to all of you who served in our Armed Forces, either in battle on in the offices making the calls and the machinery that helps those out in the field.  And dad, thanks for serving for 21 years in the Air Force!!

Seeing some new red

There was some red that most in Huskerland didn’t want to see on Saturday. So, on that note, I will start looking to some better red colors… Christmas. Only a couple more months away!!!

Oh happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away.  He taught me how to wash, fight and pray; and he taught me how to live rejoicing yes, He did oh yeah, every, every day!

These girls are incredible, and the one that is soloing, is the youngest and started singing in this group where she was 4.  Chose for yourself which one ya think is better.  Me personally, I like both of them…
