A reminder that everything is a gift from God, both the good times and the sad times.

 

Every beat, every beat
is a gift, is a gift from God
Every breath, every breath
is a gift, is a gift from God

Every cry, every cry
is a gift, is a gift from God
Every step, every step
is a gift, is a gift from God

Every choice I make
Every life You gave
Everything I have
Everything I am

Every day I live
Every trial I face
Every tear I’ve cried
Every one of these nights
Is a gift, from God

Every choice you make
Every life He gave
Everything you have
Everything you are

Every day you live
Every trial you face
Every tear you’ve cried
Every one of these nights
Is a gift

Here’s a song I wrote last week for a songwriting class I am currently taking at UCLA, for fun! 

Being single is a hard season in a person’s life. Since the second grade I’ve been looking for the One God has in store for me. If I must continue waiting, might as well have fun while doing so! Here’s a song to my future wife, wherever you are. Hope this encourages the singles out there! (I definitely need encouragement… 😦   )

“Having Fun Writing a Simple Love Song to my Wife

Sitting here writing a love song
to my wife, a simple melody
Using the I, vi, IV, V chords

For the lyrics, letting it go
Having fun, just pen and paper flow
With the words I wish to say

Chorus:

In a simple song and a melody
Like a child learning the Do Re Mi
Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do

Do to you I say I do, I do
Re(Ray) of light from my morning star
Mi Forget about me cause it’s all about you, you, you
Fa I’m falling, falling for you
Sol(Soul) Destined to be yours alone
La (Love) you forever
Ti Till eternity

Do, Re, Mi, Sol, La, Sol, Mi, Re, Do
Sol, La, Ti, Re, Do

God put a song in my head this morning so I decided to write it out! God never ceases to amaze me; I don’t know what else to say! Praise God!

“What is it about You?”

(V 1)

What is it about you,
that makes me so intrigued by you,
it’s the way that you love me even though I, don’t always love you

What is it about you,
that gives me hope the way you do,
it’s the way that you catch me and lift me up, everytime I fall

(C 1)

Jesus, my Best Friend,
you make me fall in love, again and again

Jesus, my All in All,
you’re my Everything, and I’ll always sing of your love

(V 2)

What is it about you,
that lets me put my trust in you,
it’s the way that you answer back every prayer, every time I call

What is it about you,
that makes we want to spend my life with you,
it’s the way that you hold me close in your arms, and say
“I’ll always be with you!”

(C 2)

Jesus, my Best Friend,
you make me fall in love, again and again

Jesus, my All in All,
you’re my Everything, and I’ll always sing…

Jesus, my Lord my God,
I’ll worship you, because you are the King

Jesus, my Greatest Love,
Won’t you take me back into your warm embrace, today.


Thank God! :]
