    He is Love

    When no one listens, He listens
    When no one cares, He cares

    Come home running
    He cares, He listens
    His loving arms are open

    Destiny Cry

    Destiny cries aloud in the street of God,
    "Talk to me, I'll tell you a mystery."
    Destiny cries aloud, waiting on the road,
    "Come with me, I'll give you glory."

    Destiny cries aloud, waiting patiently,
    "Choose me, great will be your victory."
    Destiny cries aloud, "Don't you worry,
    Though it's hard, by faith it will be easy."

    Walk not in the way of the wicked,
    Lest you be counted as dead.
    Your soul will be their food,
    If you don't choose what is good.

    Listen to the cry of your destiny,
    Crying loudly while waiting patiently,
    "Come with me now and choose me,
    Enjoy my company unto eternity."


    Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." D...

    Free to Walk in My Destiny

    I'm free from confusion,
    God is my illumination.
    I’m free from evil imagination,
    He helps me in a difficult situation.

    No longer bound by the enemy,
    I’m free to walk in my destiny.
    God has given me the ability,
    To fulfill the dream He has for me.

    I will run after God’s plan,
    My own plan, I lay down.
    I’ll say, "Lord, Your will be done."
    "I'll follow Jesus, Your Son."


    He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. (Colossians 1:13) It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)

    Do Not Worry

    Don’t waste your time worrying
    It will never solve anything
    Don’t be anxious about a small thing
    You don’t know what tomorrow may bring

    Be fruitful and multiply
    See the birds in the sky
    They eat because of His favor
    Though they don’t toil nor labor

    Increase in every good thing
    Don’t be anxious about clothing
    Look at the lilies of the field
    See how beautiful they are arrayed

    He's given you everything good
    The animals and plants for your food
    He's given you everything you need
    Seeds to plant that will surely yield

    Believe God and all His promises
    Seek His kingdom and righteousness
    He will supply your needs in excess
    According to His abundant riches


    But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore d...

    Fly Away

    I have wings like a dove,
    I fly away to find my rest in God.
    I have wings like a dove,
    I fly away and rest in His love.

    Where are those fears?
    Where are those worries?
    They couldn’t win the fight,
    So they vanished from sight.


    "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

    Swim in the sea of His grace
    Dive into the ocean of His love
    Receive the fullness of His grace
    Enjoy the vastness of His love

    Wave after wave, grace for grace

    Let yourself be swept away by the waves
    Let them take you to the deep,
    To the depths of His love,
    To the fullness of His grace in Christ.

    Wave after wave, grace for grace


    And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. (John 1:16)

    Teach you his ways

    The Way

    I was believing a lie,
    Missing out on life.
    Going in the wrong direction,
    Having no satisfaction.

    Short-lived joy,
    Happiness on the surface.
    Life with shallow cause,
    Leading to great loss.

    In despair, I cried to You,
    "Is this all there is?"
    You took it as Your cue,
    To come to my rescue.

    You found me, You showed me,
    You showed me what's true.
    You found me, You told me,
    You told me the way is YOU.


    Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life." (John 14:6)

    Start Dreaming

    Start dreaming
    Start building a dream
    Bigger than the world
    Build it on the Word
    Dream a divine dream
    Base it on His promises
    Forget all your weaknesses
    Picture the dream
    Spend time with Him
    Until the image is clear
    Till you’re free from fear
    Sure you will never fail
    No way the devil can steal
    Your dream, God-given
    Destined to happen
