My Reflective Response to Psalm 139:13-16

“For You have created my conscience.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You, for I am awesomely, wonderfully made!
Wonderful are Your works—
and my soul knows that very well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw me when I was unformed,
and in Your book were written the days that were formed—
when not one of them had come to be.”
(Psalm 139:13-16 Tree of Life Version)

My conscience she knew Your creation before she knew You, and You knew me before I was to know of the life journey I was to go on.
You knew my journey was to be a unique expression of Your love, and Your love gives me strength to carry on.
Even when I get anxious or feel uncomfortable with my body, Your love it is what ultimately gives me strength to carry on.
I know that even when hatred is spewed my way and disease gets ravaged upon my body, that it is Your love that will ultimately give me strength to carry on.
For it is the knowledge that I have of the fact that I and my journey are both expressions of who You are that I never ever had the thought of opting out.
And I Know my journey it was written in Your book even before any of it had come to be.

I Am A Beloved Daughter Of The Father

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding
That I hold very close to my heart
‘Cause people they denied me my opportunity to
Have a relationship with my very loving God
The opportunity to explore my femininity and robbed
Me my opportunity to live as a girl
I never got to live as a girl

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding
That I got by always pushing on forward
Even if I needed rest for a while
Eventually I would always go push on forward
To the understanding I can sill get to
Live as a woman who gets a relationship
Ever expanding relationship with her very loving God

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding

(It Will Take) Only Time

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
I’m on the right track
To being close to you

In my heart is where
You will be found living
Giving me the will to
Carry on with your grace
And your love to give

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
I’m on right track to
Bringing people close to you

In place of worship is
Where you will be found
Living, giving people will to
Carry on with your grace
And your love to give

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
I’m on the right track

Given It All Of My Best

I’ve gone and given it all of my best
And no this ain’t my time to go rest
‘Cause you went set me loss on a quest
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
As a result I now have a spiritual leaning
For depth in our Sunday morning worship services see
‘Cause I’ve already had religious introductions given to me
‘Bought things from Judaism to human sexuality in RE
So I wanna take it to the next level
And this might get me perceived as a rebel
But I don’t think I’m alone on this here
‘Cause fellow raised UUs that I’ve conversed do appear
To desire more ritual in worship like I’d here
As you may have guessed I’m saying to watch
What could be if we UUs turned up a notch
Even just one the depth of our religious thought
We’d have more I think staying here from young to old age

Freely Following Jesus

We’ll be following Jesus once again
At least I know I’ll be
I hope you’ll come join me

This time want be like before
Unlike our dads and moms childhoods
It’ll be from our own understandings

That we’ll be freely following Jesus
At lest I’ll freely follow Jesus
I hope you’ll come join me

Saving grace will set us free
And love will guide us on
As we be freely following Jesus

Oh we’ll be freely following Jesus
At lest I’ll freely follow Jesus
I hope you’ll come join me

A Hallelujah Now

Don’t feel you
Around me now
Your not around
Me now I
Need you around
All me now

All I gotta
Do is keeping
Me from you
And me surviving
Rather be living
Life with you

I feel blockage
Around and within
All of me
And it’s keeping
You from being
All around me

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God…

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God…

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God her’s a hallelujah
A hallelujah now

Finally Time

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its finally time
For us to mature
This thing we’ve now
In this sacred space
We’re just being spiritual
Spiritually oh so adolescent

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its time for
Us to be able
To say this thing
In this sacred space
It’s our own spiritualities
That are now maturing

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its finally time
For us to mature

Finally time
For us
To mature
This thing
In our
Sacred spaces
And it’s
Our spiritualities

Holding Back My Piece

I did try to
Find spiritualness today but
Today only brought me
Holding back my piece

I didn’t say this
Is so wrong I
Kept quiet ’cause you
Wouldn’t understand my aching

And my desperate need
To connect more with
The divine and holly
Where is it now

I did try to
Find spiritualness today but
Today only brought me
Holding back my piece

When will I stop
Cowering over in my
Own place and go
Start to be strong

I did try to
Find spiritualness today but
Today only brought me
Holding back my piece

‘Cause you wouldn’t understand
My need to connect
More with the divine
And the holy too

I need the holy
The holy too oh
And the divine also
Oh how about you

I did try to
Find spiritualness today but
Today only brought me
Holding back my piece

I need to speak
To speak my piece
Whether you get it
Get it or not

I did try to
Find spiritualness today but
Today only brought me
Holding back my piece

Silly Smile

I’m doing things the world says I gotta do wen
All I wanna do is sing rocky songs ’bout you
Till I’m overcome with the uncontrollable urge to break out
Overcome with uncontrollable urge to brake out and silly smile

They’ll ask why I can’t wash it off my face
Why I can’t wash off my silly smile, silly smile
I’ll have courage to tell them why I silly smile
And I’ll say it’s all ’cause, ’cause of wonderful you

My silly smile will be the greatest prayer I’ve prayed
Greatest prayer I’ve ever prayed and it’ll be for you
For you and those that need to know you oh
All I wanna do is sing rocky songs ’bout you

All I wanna do is sing rocky songs ’bout you
Till I’m overcome with the uncontrollable urge to break out
Overcome with uncontrollable urge to brake out and silly smile
But I’m doing things the world says I gotta do

With Her Sweet Voice (God Loves Us)

With her sweet voice
She is rocking out
And helping us see
That God loves us

And helping us see

Our hearts, souls, minds
But with God we
Still can live knowing
He’ll make it ok

With her sweet voice
She is rocking out
And helping us see
Even if we struggle
We can have hope
Hope ones again and
This hope it is
It is in God

Hope to live again

With her sweet voice
She is rocking out
And helping us see
That God loves us

God he loves us
