Mellifiluous – Hush!!

Posted: October 6, 2010 in Mellifluous

Such diversity!! The individuals who shared their songs and the songs themselves. Last night i shared about love, acceptance and forgiveness and how we as a group of individuals were making it our single purpose to achieve some level of success in doing just that. Loving people as a demonstration of our relationship with God.

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed over out of death into Life by the fact that we love the brethren (our fellow Christians). He who does not love abides (remains, is held and kept continually) in [spiritual] death.

 The evidence that i am a child of God is my love for others. As a result of my love relationship then comes acceptance. i did not say comes license. If  all i communicate is personal rejection, no one will ever be around me long enough to be touched by God through me. In no way am i condoning the actions that are contrary to God’s word but God wrote it so He can administrate. my attention will be on what that looks like for me. Then following love and acceptance comes forgiveness. i like the way Catherine Marshall says it, “forgiveness is releasing someone from your own personal judgement.” Enough said.

 Ephesians 4:32 And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave you.

Okay so as for today’s song… the connection as i hear it and read it comes from this person being a single mom and the choice to connect and do life together with this group of diverse people. i think the best way for me to participate in this song is to bold the words that speak to me. Again it’s a fun song, it has a rhythm that captures me. It lifts me up, makes me smile and so thank you for sharing your song. 

03 – Irene

Hush little baby baby don’t you cry
Daddy’s gonna sing you a lullaby
Everything’s gonna be alright
The Lord’s gonna answer your prayer tonight

Last night I had a dream you was the homecoming queen
Today you’re 18, happy birthday Irene
Quit school you had to drop out to raise your little child
Doesn’t seem to be anyone around
You got to reach up to touch rock bottom
The powers that be keep you downtrodden
Daughter of Zion, I heard your prayer
Just cast your cares and please beware of snakes
They come in all shapes and sizes
Tempt you, put scales on your eyelids
Don’t waste your sorrows
They’ll give you strength … tomorrow
Your Calvary’s about to come so
Keep your head up, don’t you ever let up
This storm will pass you be ready for the next one

Hey little girl with the pressures of the world on your shoulders
Don’t say that it’s over
I heard your prayers, just cast your cares
And I’ll be there so don’t you fear

Irene I carried you when you was too weak to walk
I took to you when you gave your heart to God
Faithful and true, that’s what I’ll always be to you
Believe in you, believe in Me and these mountains have to move
You have dreams and aspirations
I knew you before creation
Your foundation’s solid
I will give you a palace, restore your soul
You’ll be up for any challenge
Many storms are on the way better sharpen your faith
Count the cost, take up your cross
And wear it every day
Rest in Me and I will give you strength
Blessed is she, Irene who seeks my face

Father I’m stronger than when I first believed

Father i am stronger than yesterday. This person, this song, this relationship helps me to believe and to hope in the future you have for me. And causes me to be joyful, while in the process.

  1. Eve says:

    You heard it – what a blessing. Thank you!

  2. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet
    the easiest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I definitely
    get irked even as other people think about concerns that they just do not recognize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

  3. You’ve made some good points there. I looked on the internet for more
    information about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this website.

  4. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to
    be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I
    desire to suggest you few interesting things or advice.
    Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!
