A.J. Gossip – Our work and the Holy Spirit

“Most of us in the Church … still believe mainly in fuss and noise and crowding and organization and machinery. If things drag, we evolve some other type of meeting… There may be no spiritual outcome whatsoever, but we are pleasantly tired, and there is a wind blowing in our faces and so we have the sense something is being done. So long as we are hot and perspiring, are talking and meeting, are bustled and rushed, we feel that things are happening, for we trust in efficiency and busyness, and a certain material capacity far more than in the Holy Spirit.”

… A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), The Galilean Accent, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1926, p. 76

Invisible (RED edit)

It’s like the room just cleared of smoke
I didn’t even want the heart you broke
It’s yours to keep
You just might need one

I finally found my real name
I won’t be me when you see me again
No, I won’t be my father’s son

I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
More than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body in a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible

That’s right
I’ll be in the invisible world

I don’t dream, not as such
I don’t even think about you that much
Unless I start to think at all

All those frozen days
And your frozen ways
They melt away your face like snow

I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
I’m more than you let me be

A.J. Gossip – You are flustered and uneasy…

1105099_orig

“You are flustered and uneasy.  Feel for the hand of God your Father, and be sure that He is your Father, thinking you with a father’s care, and you will find a hand does close on yours.  Or you are disconcerted that so little comes of all your spiritual strivings.  Turn to the Cross again, and, looking up at it, really take in that it is not upon your own poor efforts and weak will but upon God’s eternal plans and dearest wish you lean and that will rally you.  Or you are baffled and beaten, and it seems no use trying further.  Sink your tired, fretted mind deep down into the infinite deeps of God’s unthinkable majesty and patience and … so you will feel strong walls about you, will find yourself in a cool, sheltered place with your breath come again; better than that, will, like Paul, fling yourself unafraid once more into the fight, knowing that He that is with you is more than all they that can be against you; that through Him you can do all things…”

Foo Fighters – All My Life

All My Life

All my life I’ve been searching for something
Something never comes, never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies, but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around and it’s taken away
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

Come down don’t you resist
You’ve such a delicate wrist
And if I give it a twist
Something to hold when I lose my grip
Will I find something in that
So give me just what I need
Another reason to bleed
One by one hidden up my sleeve, one by one hidden up my sleeve

(Chorus)
Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate the taste
Weight keeping me down

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate the taste
Weight keeping me down
(End Chorus)

Will I find a believer?
Another one who believes
Another one to deceive
Over and over down on my knees

If I get any closer
And if you open up wide
And if you let me inside
On and on I got nothing to hide, on and on I got nothing to hide

(Chorus)

All my life I’ve been searching for something
Something never comes, never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies, but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around and it’s taken away
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

And I’m done, done onto the next one
Done, Done and I’m onto the next one
Done, Done and I’m onto the next one
Done, Done and I’m onto the next one
Done, Done and I’m onto the next one
Done, Done and I’m onto the next one
Done, Done and I’m onto the next one
Done, I’m done and I’m onto the next

DONE! DONE! ONTO THE NEXT ONE
DONE! I’M DONE AND I’M ONTO THE NEXT ONE
DONE! DONE! ONTO THE NEXT ONE
DONE! I’M DONE AND I’M ONTO THE NEXT!

(Chorus)

DONE DONE ONTO THE NEXT ONE
DONE I’M DONE AND I’M ONTO THE NEXT…

The New Year – DCFC

The New Year

So this is the new year.
And i don’t feel any different.
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance (in the distance).

So this is the new year
And I have no resolutions
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions

So everybody put your best suit or dress on
Let’s make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
As thirty dialogs bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then i could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways
There’d be no distance that could hold us back.

There’d be no distance that could hold us back [x2]

So this is the new year [x4]
