A beautiful song

I have been sleeping in the rocking chair all evening , but I will tell you why later. It has been a long day. It is nearly midnight here, and I have just come to check my email, and a couple of blogs before going back to sleep. But in my bed this time.

I popped over to BooMama's and she is doing a Mandisa giveaway this weekend. Now I had never heard of Mandisa, I have to say, so I went to listen here, because BooMama said to go, and as you all know, we do what BooMama tells us to do. Don't we???? I decided to listen to the other songs she has on her website, and the second one just happens to be called God Speaking. It blew me away. The words are so simple. The message is so powerful. I am already word perfect, and it is midnight, and I had to tell you.

I couldn't work out how to download the lyrics, but here is what I think they are anyway. If these words stay in my head all night, then that is just fine. Go and listen, and you will see what I mean.

God Speaking .................. Mandisa

Have you ever heard a love song that set your spirit free?
Have you ever watched a sunrise and felt you could not breathe?
What if it's Him?
What if it's God speaking?

Have you ever cried a tear that you could not explain?
Have you ever met a stranger who already knew your name?
What if it's Him?
What if it's God speaking?

Who knows how He'll get a hold of us?
Get our attention to prove He's enough?
He'll do and He'll use whatever he wants to
To tell us "I love you."

Have you ever lost a loved one who you thought should still be here?
Do you know what it feels like to be tangled up in fear?
What if He's somehow involved?
What if He's speaking through it all?

Who knows how He'll get a hold of us?
Get our attention to prove He's enough?
He'll do and He'll use whatever he wants to
To tell us, "I love you."

His ways are higher
His ways are best

Though sometimes strange

What could be stranger
Than God in a manger?

Who knows how He'll get a hold of us?
Get our attention to prove He's enough?
Who knows how He'll get a hold of you?
Get your attention to prove He's enough?
He'll do and He'll use whatever He wants to
To tell us "I love you"
God is speaking.
"I love you."

With my very slow dial-up, I don't really ever get to listen to anyone's music. I'm glad you put up the lyrics Linds :-)
I've given you an award. I know I'm not the only one, but the rules say I can so I did!!! You are very special to me.

I never ceases to be amazed how God gives us just what we happen to need at the right time, the right moment, and it speaks so to our heart!!

Wow, what wonderful words! I've never heard of this person, or group, but I love the lyrics. As Susan said, it always amazes me how a devotional or song will have been written who knows when, and suddenly, in a God moment, it comes to us just at the right time. He is so good!
