I HAVE TO BELIEVE I AM WHO I AM IN I AM (Song Lyrics)

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
Because in Him, I live and move and have my being
So I am all that He says I am, and that’s the truth
Lord, in Your mercy, give me eyes opened, all seeing

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
His Word says I’m His child, beautifully created
Healed, worthy and cleansed, safe, forgiven and bathed in love
Lord, I’m so sorry I took so much time and waited

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
No more condemnation, no more wandering alone
You’ve given me rest, peace, that the world can’t comprehend
Lord, You have turned my heart to flesh, where once there was stone

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
Made every whit whole, and Your Name do I magnify
Justified, glorified, I now have the mind of Christ
Lord, You found me, I was lost, Your word, did satisfy

Yes, in Christ, I am no longer hurting
In Christ, at last I am finally me
’Cause in Christ I am no longer searching
For eternal love that can set me free

I AM NOT INVISIBLE (Song Lyrics)

withered flower

Chorus
I may be invisible to you
I may be invisible to you
You may not hear what I say
You may not see what I do
But I am not invisible
No, I am not invisible
To the One who loves me through and through

Every day that I feel unloved
I cherish the One who loves me
Every time loved ones pass me by
I look to the One who loves me
Every smile that goes unnoticed
I smile at the One who loves me
Every tear that in silence falls
I leave with the One who loves me
Every night when I’m all alone
I praise the One who is with me

’Cause every season it will bring
Times of feeling so neglected
The sun keeps shining, the moon glows
The stars twinkle, a new day dawns
Life passes by, breaths keep breathing
And I feel so invisible
As I pour out those given gifts
It’s no good trying to please man
Mustn’t hope for recognition
When what you give is rejected

Chorus
I may be invisible to you
I may be invisible to you
You may not hear what I say
You may not see what I do
But I am not invisible
No, I am not invisible
To the One who loves me through and through

Praise God, my heavenly Father
For I will never leave His sight
So what, there’s no recognition
With man and with those that I love
Yes I may be invisible
Yes I’d love to be heard, admired
But if you do walk right past me
And my words bounce right off your heart
Yes it hurts; but I’ll no longer
Try to be seen, I’m in His light

I’m not invisible, no I’m not
I’m here with my wonderful Saviour
He holds my hand, shares our secret plan
Tells me one day I will understand
The reasons for others’ behaviour

Set As Flint

Walkout along the narrow way
Hand in hand with Jesus
And nothing or no-one can ever make us sway
Either to the left or right or fumble lonely in the dark
For our living God He holds us close and if in obedience
We’ll never part

Isaiah 50:7
For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
