"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

ORPHANS OF GOD


I was playing this song the other day over and over again. For some reason there are certain songs that affect me emotionally and bring me back to the first time I heard the song.

I heard this song over two years ago when I was going to my Thursday night group for Life Skills. A group I was not comfortable with at the time. I did not fit in. Felt like an orphan. I would play this song before class again and again.

The words were very powerful for me at the time. Now.....the words are not only powerful, but meaningful. Shows another aspect of my growth.

But....when I hear this song NOW, it is haunting. For some reason I am uncomfortable with listening to it. And some times I have to turn it off. Because I get painfully and emotionally uncomfortable as my heart begins to reconnect and heal.


Who here among us has not been broken
Who here among us is without guilt or pain
So oft’ abandoned by our transgressions
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

Come ye unwanted and find affection
Come all ye weary, come and lay down your head
Come ye unworthy, you are my brother
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

O blessed Father, look down upon us
We are Your children, we need Your love
We run before Your throne of mercy
And seek Your face to rise above

  2. HI Rosel, thank you for your comment. Glad you appreciated the song. Today, it was my turn for devotionals at work. I brought my guitar, as usual and sang and played, "Everlasting God." One of my co-workers recorded me and has me on a WAV file. I am trying to convert it to MP3 and somehow upload it somewhere on the internet to share with you all. I do not know if I will be successful in doing this. But I will try. Blessings.
