In Silence


Lord, will you never answer
Has my sin kept you away
What have I done, or not done
How long do I have to wait

All I hear is silence, not the peaceful kind
It’s screaming at me, your will, not mine
But I want answers now, I need your help
Where is your presence, in silence
In silence

Lord, I’m pleading for mercy
Is there not another road
Is this my fate, is it too late
To change the path I must go

He opened not his mouth
As they led him out
Like a sheep before slaughter
In silence

Behind the lines

For the times when there seems to be no answer and we have to trust Him and wait.

Psalm 28

To you, O LORD, I call;
my rock, be not deaf to me,
lest, if you be silent to me,
I become like those who go down to the pit.

Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
when I cry to you for help,
when I lift up my hands
toward your most holy sanctuary.

Sing a Soothing Song Over Me

concert-1335779_1920When sin and sorrow seize me,
When the darkness overcomes,
Lord, take me where mountains sing,
Where the rocks and waters hum,
Where lyres find an ocean breeze,
And the waves and palm trees strum.

Sing a soothing song over me,
Like David played for Saul,
And chase away my enemies,
My heartaches, and my faults,
Lift my heart with Your Voice of Peace,
To take away my grief,
And raise a melody of grace,
To bring my soul relief.

When demons taunt me to fear,
And the harps of nature fail,
Take me to the Tree of Tears,
Where Satan’s old songs were nailed,
Then teach me the Psalmist’s cheer,
Where Lyrics of Hope prevail.

When the dirge of death is queued,
And my final breath is played,
Remake my voice for Your tune,
As an instrument of grace,
Then I’ll sing it back to You,
As an everlasting praise.

Behind the lines

The thought of God singing over us, soothing our souls, then one day teaching us our unique song so we can sing it back to Him. If He rejoices and sings for us, what language does He use?

The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

The Battle Prayer


The battle prayer goes out to war,
It sweats and fights to find the Lord,
But He already knows.
For He ordained our enemies,
To drop our hearts upon their knees,
So prep your battle clothes.

The battle prayer goes out for men,
To see the Christ and hope in Him,
And leave their sinful ways.
For many trust in strength of self,
In strongholds our hearts long have held,
Where idols gather praise.

The battle prayer goes out in faith,
When humbled warriors seek His face,
And bring their grief and fears.
For He does not leave nor forsake,
He strengthens us when terrors rage,
Emmanuel is near!

The battle prayer goes out for peace,
And pleas for help will never cease,
Until the war is won.
For in His name our hearts cry out,
Reveal Your glory and renown,
O Jesus, will You come?

The battle prayer goes out to war,
It sweats and fights to find the Lord,
And He’s found, Peace is found,
Yes, Christ is found – in victory.

Behind the lines

Psalm 20 is a song and prayer to prepare for war and it applies to our battle of faith. It anticipates victory in the Davidic King, the Son of David, who reigns forever, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. He is our Victory. He is our Hope. Come, Lord Jesus!
