40 Songs for 40 Days – Day 22

Please refer to the March 5, 2014 – Ash Wednesday post for the Introduction to this Music Experience for Lent.

Just a reminder that Day 23 will be posted for Monday. Have a blessed Sunday.

FSFD022 Song Title: Takes Me, Tells Me – Romans 1:16-17 (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read this passage at BibleGateway.com)

The Good News takes me, down on my knees to ask You,

up on my feet to praise You, arms reaching up to worship God.

Down on my knees for praying, up on my feet for singing,

hands reaching up to You, oh Lord!

The Gospel tells me, trust in the Lord forever,

live for the Lord and never, give up on what His message says.

Trust Him with all my heart and live His way with all my strength,

believe, with all my heart and soul!

The Good News takes me, down on my knees to ask You,

up on my feet to praise You, arms reaching up to worship God.

Down on my knees for praying, up on my feet for singing,

hands reaching up to You, oh Lord! Hands reaching up to You, oh Lord!

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

    The Good News shows us both how righteous God is in his plan for us to be saved and also how we may be made fit for eternal life. By trusting Christ, our relationship with God is made right. “From start to finish,” God declares us to be right with him because of faith and faith alone. Paul then quotes from Habakkuk 2:4 to show that as we trust God, we are saved; we have life both now and forever.
