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

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?
