Partial lyrics from Undo Me by Jennifer Knapp
Lord undo me….
I am wanting, needing, guilty & greedy.
Unrighteous, unholy undo me.
Abba father you must wonder why
More times than Peter I have denied.
Three nails and a cross to prove
I owe my Life eternally to you!
Well its time to get down on my knees and pray.
Lord undo me
Put away this flesh and bone
Til you own this spirit through me.
Lord undo me.
What If? by Creed
I know I can’t hold the hate inside my mind
‘Cause what consumes your thoughts controls your life
So I’ll just ask a question
A lonely simple question
I’ll just ask one question
What if? What if?
What if? What if?
What If I?What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?What if your words could be judged like a crime?
**These songs speak to me, so does ‘Sing Mary Sing’ and ‘Mary Did You know?’
Maybe because I’m a mom and thinking about Jesus being a real human with a mom and family, brings it a little bit more real to me.
WE saw The Nativity Story this holiday season. The part that struck a chord in my heart was when the angel told Mary she was to bring forth a child named Jesus and when the angel of the Lord told Joseph, Do not be afraid, for what is happening to Mary is God’s will (my paraphrase, of course)It hit me, they both knew and they were the only ones who knew the baby Mary was carrying was something special, for all the nations, was from God. Can you imagine, no one in the world was for them, she could of been stoned and they together knew. They had this secret, this crazy charge God had given them.
That knowledge had to help form a bond between them knowing they had to cling together for encouragment and love and support.Could they have really known the impact early on? Did they just obey their God that easy? It’s pretty amazing to me.
Compare this: God literally tells Mary and Joseph to have this baby that He will be special and they obey.
Today: millions of women knowingly kill their unborn children, not ever getting to know how special their child could have been…
Lord, Undo Me, put away my flesh and bone!
