Another Day Strong

italy-2080072_1280

Some days are harder than others
Without your curves under the covers
Waking up knowing I’ll never hold another…like you
But then there’s days when I think everything’s gonna be alright
And nights when my heart tells me I’m gonna survive
Without you snuggling by my side

Another day gone, another day strong
I’ve gotta long way to go, down this lonely road
I don’t feel like I’m getting far, when I’m missing you so hard
But I’m praying one day at a time, since you’ve been gone
I’m another day strong

Some days I’m haunted by your face
Driving by spots where we used to date
Sometimes you appear in crazy ways…out of the blue
Like hearing that song you always sang the wrong words to
When a caller on the radio sounded just like you
Catching the scent of your perfume

I’m moving on, never the same
Changed by love, changed by pain
But your memory will never fade

Another day gone, another day strong
I’m another day strong

The Purpose Of Our Lives

target-755802_1280

Our sin leads to death and heartbreak
Makes life a headache
And this world leaves us
Dissatisfied

Our hearts long for something higher
A Consuming Fire
Who’s grace fights for us
Until we cry

There is no other
Sisters and brothers
Nothing compares to
The Savior seated on high
Let’s tell the world this truth
And live to glorify
The Purpose of our lives

Lord, we question what your Word says
We have our own plans
We lose our way when
We look within

But You have told us to trust You
In all that we do
Not to trust ourselves
For we’re not God

Lord, when we don’t know what to do
Our eyes are on You
When we don’t know what to do
Our eyes are on You
Lord, when we don’t know what to do
Our eyes are on You…
The Purpose of our lives

Tom’s Song

Tom Carpenter
Tom Carpenter

One wretched sinner, saved by grace
Through Christ the Son Who took my place
Once dead in sin, a guilty man
Until I met the Great I AM

He knows the number of my days
Discerns my thoughts, sees all my ways
Sealed with the Spirit – guaranteed
O Praise His name! How can this be?

His way, His path, His narrow road
My life’s journey will yet unfold
And when “God help me!” is my cry
My Sovereign knows, He’s not surprised

Though dark and desperate days find me
I’ll fix my hope on Calvary
For Sin and Death cannot prevail
When Christ, the Cure, has made me well

Behind the lines

This song, and the idea behind the GraceSyllables blog, was inspired because of how God worked through Tom Carpenter’s life and his final days with terminal cancer. Tom passed away February 16, 2010 at the age of 51. You may learn more here along with the compelling words he wrote before he died.

 

Fight

karate-2578819_1920

Don’t fall for the love of money
Be content with all you have
Put off the sin that clings closely
Never pick it up again

Fight the good fight of faith
Lay it down, set aside every weight
To finish the long hard race
We must fight…
Fight the good fight of faith
Fight…
Fight the good fight of faith

So prepare yourself for battle
While trusting Almighty God
For there will be days of struggle
But stay strong in what you’ve learned

One caution, don’t take this lightly
The discipline of the Lord
When He corrects, don’t grow weary
For it proves how much He loves

Behind the Lines

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses (1 Timothy 6:12 ESV).

Troubled

guy-2617866_1920

Verse 1
One of you will betray me
One of you will deny
All of you will be afraid
And scattered into the night

Pre-Chorus
I will lay down my life
I will lay down my life

Chorus
Don’t let your hearts be troubled, troubled
Don’t let your fears get in the way
Believe in God, believe also in me
And when your world starts to crumble
Don’t let your hearts be troubled

Verse 2
There is a new commandment
One that I give to you
That you love one another
With the love which I’ve loved you

Bridge
I will go and prepare a place for you
My Father’s house has many rooms
So keep my commands until I come again
And remember I am coming soon

We Ain’t Workin Anymore

landscape-696825_1920

Verse 1
3am – taking a drive – no other headlights on the road
Just you and yellow highway lines steering my thoughts every mile I go
Even though the radio’s blastin’ all I hear are your words rattlin’ my soul
“We ain’t workin anymore”

Chorus
What ever happened to “we can work through anything” 
What happened to “you’re the best thing that ever happened to me”
How could it be over after we worked so well together
I thought I had the best girl in the world, until…
“We ain’t workin anymore”

Verse 2
I passed your mama’s house and the roof I helped fix over the den
I remember our first date when your daddy said “bring her home by ten”
And there’s the restaurant where we ate, but that was back when it all began
“We ain’t workin anymore”

Bridge
How many tanks of gas will it take before I figure it all out
I’m gonna need the tires rotated and an oil change without a doubt
And if I was paid by the mile I just might could retire
But, baby, I ain’t gonna quit and I can’t be fired
