I Belong - Kathryn Scott

For the first song of this blog, I have chosen I Belong by Kathryn Scott (listen on her My Space page here.


Lyrics for "I Belong"
I BELONG© Mildred Rainey & Kathryn Scott


Not angels, nor demons, no power on earth or heaven

Not distance, nor danger, no trouble now or ever

Nothing can take me from your great love

Forever this truth remains

I belong, I belong to you

Not hardship, nor hunger, no pain or depth of sorrow

Not weakness, nor failure, no broken dream or promise

See what Kathryn has to say about writing this song here.


Relevant Bible Verses:
John 14:6 - (NIV) - Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Romans 8:34-35 - (NIV) - Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

Think on these things:
1. Another name for Jesus is "the Truth". How do your thoughts on the line "forever this truth remains" change when you think of it with "Jesus" replacing "truth"?

2. Sing this song to Jesus (no criticisms on voice quality allowed :)). How does this feel?

Just click on "comments" and let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear from you.

Welcome to Songs of Faith

Greetings from your Sister in Christ. I have started this blog to serve as a central meeting place for a study of Christian music. Songs can be contemporary, traditional, gospel, even mainline as long as there is an element of the worship of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

For the inital format, I'll post a link where you can listen to the song along with the lyrics. I'll also post a couple of bible references and some questions to get us thinking about the song.

Songs will be posted weekly on Sunday evenings. I welcome anyone to comment on the current or any previous post as long as your comments are in the positive light of Jesus Christ. Any comment that I deem inappropriate will be deleted.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope that you find that the topics discussed here will help strengthen your faith in Jesus. Please feel free to send this link (www.ashlimoore.blogspot.com) to anyone you would like to share this study with.

Also, if anyone has suggestions for a song, please pass it my way.

Enjoy in the Name and Power of Jesus Christ.
