"We are pressed
on every side by troubles,
but not crushed and broken.
We are perplexed
because
we don't know why things happen as they do,
but we don't give up and quit.
We are hunted down,
but God never abandons us.
We get knocked down,
but we get up again
and keep going"
(2 Corinthians 4:8-9 The Living Bible).

  6. I may try to write another song after hearing those last few lines:

    We get knocked down,
    but we get up again
    and keep going.


    Very inspirational!

  11. Wow! I love these verses :)

    we're going to be memorizing them as a youth group soon this year... each year we intensely memorize a different book of the Bible. this year we're doing 1&2 Corinthians... love the verses!

    Some of my favourite verses are the following:

    For I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in th Son of God who loved me and gave himeself for me (Galatians 2 : 20-21)

    For nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37)

    Thanks so much Susie!

    And go for it, Ashley M! :) It'll be beautiful, i'm sure. ^_^ Then maybe submit it to the creative corner so we can see it! :D

  13. @Rebecca and Erin: Thanks! I will send it in if I write one :D
    Here's the one I wrote before:

    The Meaning of Surrender:

    VERSE 1:
    Lord bring me to my knees
    Show me what it means
    Reveal to me the meaning of surrender
    I want to give to You
    Every part of me
    Lord I just want to surrender

    CHORUS:
    Take my life, every part of me
    Use me for Your glory, God
    Break me, mold me, anything
    Here and now, I surrender

    VERSE 2:
    I give my life to you
    All my hopes and dreams
    Is this the meaning of surrender
    Now I give to you
    Every part of me
    Lord I just want to surrender

    CHORUS:
    Take my life, every part of me
    Use me for your glory, God
    Break me, mold me, anything
    Here and now, I surrender

    BRIDGE:
    Lord I stand before You
    Ready for You
    I give my life to You

    CHORUS:
    Take my life, every part of me
    Use me for your glory, God
    Break me, mold me, anything
    Here and now, I surrender

    VERSE 3:
    Lord, now I’m on my knees
    I know now what it means
    I think I’ve found the meaning of surrender
    I’ve given to You
    Every part of me
    Lord, my life to You I surrender

  21. I would, but it doesn't have music yet, and I can't upload videos.... and I don't think my mom would want a video of me online for everyone to see. (And I can't sing... :P)
