Haiku #6of7

NameRenata Kreider

After therapy today...

This is a simple song of adoration. Based on Corinthians 11:24 - a reminder to remember the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross as we gather at the communion table.

Haiku #6of7

NameRenata Kreider

After therapy today...

This song "My Life is Yours" is my fifth submission for 7-in-7. This is not a song written for corporate worship, but to reflect on God and his goodness to us. Was inspired by Peter's story. How Christ served him by washing his feet. How Christ gently asked him three times if he loved him after denying him during his crucifixion. We all can relate to Peter's story. These ideas led me to a song about surrender and how God is writing a better story for us. Grace pursues us. Who are we that Christ would come and serve us, wash our feet, die for us?

In full disclosure, I've had this chorus idea from before 7-in-7, but reworked the melody. Everything else is completely new to this song.

7in7 - 2 of 7

A corporate confession from Hebrews 1.

My first 7in7 submission is not a song, but a personal confession. I felt like I should write about how God has been reaching into the deep places of my heart and learning how to trust him. Opening up like this is not easy for me, but maybe it will bring help and encouragement to someone.

Business Cards

NameRich Hart

Featured Image (for preview in feed)

One of the fascinating things you see when you go to Mueller's BBQ in Taylor is the wall of business cards that people have been sticking up there for years, the older ones revealing their age by their darkened complexion from having been exposed to many years of smoke from the kitchen. So many different lines of work and business opportunities are represented, from years ago to the present day. To be sure, people go in there to eat, taking a delicious break from whatever work they do all day long. But as much as they may want to stay in there, they eventually need to return to work, especially if they want to be able to afford the chance to come back another day.

Work is good, and we were made to accomplish, create, and serve others in unique and significant ways. But whatever we do for our vocation, which we can do in a God glorifying way, there is another profound work that God calls us to, and that is to believe in Jesus. Jesus said it Himself, and it makes all the difference for whatever other tasks and opportunities you may accomplish in life. Indeed, it is what grounds any other work in eternity.

‚ÄúThe work God wants you to do is this: to believe in the One that God sent.‚ÄĚ -¬†John‚Ĩ ‚Ä≠6:29‚Ĩ ‚Ä≠ICB‚Ĩ‚Ĩ

A simple song based on Psalm 121. I started another song today that was just about learning the art of surrender & the internal struggles we all have as we grow up. It was my hope through it to kick off a little singer songwriter stuff for the week but I just didn't have the energy to finish it. Somewhere along the way this little melody came so I went with it.

I apologize for the fidelity and crackling, appears all of my cables are bad. That plus I injured my hand pretty bad this morning (ER visit) and had to play lightly and bump up the gain. Therefore, first take recording, and I probably shouldn't have done it in the first place!

Confession: Day #2

A new confession on how God is good but I often choose to believe otherwise.

Featured Image (for preview in feed)

*Deep Breath and Exhale* My first real venture into songwriting!  This is something I've always wanted to do, and for some reason or another it has never quite come to be... until now!  But let's be serious, song writing is HARD, especially with kids.  Therefore, for 2 days, I have 2 verses and a chorus.  I've always wanted my songs to be honest, if I ever got around to writing one.  So this track attempts to tackle acknowledging my insufficient nature but laying it down and giving it to Christ who has redeemed me as pure.

The Baptism

Baptism is a picture of being all in, and when you are, it has an affect on those around you. Reagan's immersion into Lake Georgetown has him sharing with everyone around him a little bit of his experience when he shakes it off. I saw this picture as a metaphor for those who are all in with Jesus, immersed into His Gospel, that it becomes tangibly evident to those around them when they live it out.
