Writing my blog has provided opportunities to meet the most interesting people! One new friend who follows the blog lives in Australia. She ordered my CD and apparently liked my style.
She wrote explaining she was a poet! Would I be willing to put music to some of her poems? I suggested she send a few and I’d give it a try.
While reading the first poem I was compelled to pick up my guitar. I started playing and then singing. The song was complete after singing it through only once!
It wasn’t just the speed at which it came together. It was the cry of the heart that confirmed to me that this piece was pleasing to God. The poem became a song that day. I made an appointment with an arranger and we recorded it a few days later.
- Give Me A Heart To Love You, Lord – Click here to listen:
Give me a heart to love You, Lord A heart that will always care
Care when I can’t feel Your presence, Lord
But knows You’re forever there
Give me a heart that can love You, Lord
A heart that without You can’t love
Love when the skies are in darkness, Lord
But knows the sweet blessings above
Give me a heart that is able, Lord
To love You unconditionally
Something I could never do, Lord
Unless Your Spirit’s made His home in me
Oh! Give me a heart to love You, Lord
As only Love’s love can love
Bind it with chords of tenderness, Lord
Lift it heavenward on wings of the Dove

- Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Psalm 96:1-2
This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven? Learn more so you can make your most important decision: http://www.godlife.com/gospel/
