Soundtrack to my OneWord

The Lord God Most Powerful has spoken.  He calls to everyone on earth, from where the sun rises to where it sets.
Psalms 50:1 (ERV)



The Lord God, Most Powerful, spoke yesterday. Quietly. Perfectly. Clearly. I’m still shaking off that fog of despair that had me feeling like I was in the shade rather than basking in the light of the Son. But just about the time I think I can’t go one, He speaks. In my listening, I discovered the soundtrack for this year. I found the music to accompany my OneWord

Truth is I’m weak
no strength to fight...But still my soul
refuses to die
One touch will change my life
Take Me To the King

Kirk Franklin wrote a song for actress and gospel artist Tamela Mann called Take Me to the King.  Blogger Chan-lo, describes the song as follows:

 Tamela Mann ... is known for her beautiful voice, but this time she kept it relatively simple (with the help of Kirk Franklin who wrote and produced this record) and instead delivered a song that will speak to and identify with many of our individual struggles.
While the somber feel of the record is evident, Tamela sings something in the first verse that sounded a war drum in my very own spirit:
“…But still my soul refuses to die, one touch will change my life.”
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been to those places when I’m tired of church, tired of praying, and tired of feeling disappointment. However, in those moments my soul knew and understood that I just needed the right word from our King. I also knew throughout all, good and bad, His glory is evident and still remains.
I’ve found a new fight song.  Right there on the radio, commercial radio, by the way, someone was singing my sadness. Someone was singing my despair, my empty feeling, but also my redemption, reminding me that I’ve never been alone, and while this might feel like forever, this is merely a valley I must walk through. I am reminded that this too shall pass.

I am a little less discouraged, and feel the light of the Son again. I am thankfully broken; I am never beyond the reach of His Love.

Take Me To The King 
by Kirk Franklin 

performed by Tamela Mann

Take me to the King
I don’t have much to bring
My heart is torn in pieces
It’s my offering
Take Me To The King

Truth is I’m tired
Options are few
I’m trying to pray
But where are you?
I’m all churched out
Hurt and abused
I can’t fake
What’s left to do?


Truth is I’m weak
No strength to fight
No tears to cry
Even if I tried
But still my soul
Refuses to die
One touch will change my life

Take Me To The King
I don’t have much to bring
My heart’s torn into pieces
It’s my offering

Lay me at the throne
Leave me there alone
To gaze upon Your glory
And sing to You this song
Please Take Me To The King

Truth is it’s time
To stop playing these games
We need a word
For the people’s pain

So Lord speak right now
Let it pour like rain
We're desperate
We’re chasing after you

No rules, no religion
I’ve made my decision
To run to You
The healer that I need

Take Me To The King
I don’t have much to bring
My heart’s torn to pieces
It’s my offering

Lay me at the throne
Leave me there alone
To gaze upon Your glory
And to sing to You this song

Lord we’re in the way
We keep making mistakes
Glory is not for us
Its all for You
