Lavishing Love

Brand new song today!! So excited to share this one about the Prodigal Son…let me know what you think!

Finding My Way Back to You
Written by Ben Ward

You overwhelm me with mercy
You overtake me with grace
Lavishing love, more than enough
Goodness I see and taste
So why do I run away?

CHORUS
So unworthy
Still You love me
Undeserving
Yet You celebrate
As I’m finding my way
In Your time and Your place
Back to the look on Your face
Full of mercy and grace
I’m finding my way back to You

All the riches and glory in Jesus
You willingly gave away
Sacrificing Your Son so I could come
Bask in the light of Your face
Why do I run away?

CHORUS

God is Better than Google

Screen Shot 2014-08-10 at 6.06.04 PM Did you know there are 11.944 billion Google searches performed every month? Just think about that for a second. In that second that just passed there were 4,545 searches…and each second that passes…it doesn’t stop…and it’s growing!! We ask Google every question you can imagine. And so many more that we can’t imagine. From the good (new and expecting parents’ searches increase by 2.7%!) to the questionable (Ever looked at the auto-complete suggestions…who’s searching for THAT??), people are unafraid of asking an anonymous computer (I know, I know…) the most intimate of questions. Do we bring the same sort of un-guardedness to God? David says in Psalm 139,“I’m an open book to you…You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence.” How about that? Here’s the beautiful thing: He’s not just for searching; He’s for finding.

Your Name – New Song

Wanted to write a simple song for the people to sing at church for a long time. I have some like Mover of Mountains and I Need You Lord, but I usually end up with way too many words and harmonies for the “common folk.” ;). This one turned out well I think! Let me know if you agree…

Your Name – Ben Ward

When I hear your name
I know everything’s going to be alright
When I hear your name
I know I’ll make it out alive
When I hear your name
Whispered, shouted, crying full of pain
When I hear your name
Everything’s changed

When I say your name
I feel my heavy heart get light
When I say your name
I see wrongs made right
When I say your name
If I whisper, If I shout it, If I sing it it’s the same
When I say your name
Everything’s changed

If all is right
Or much at stake
All I need to hear is your name
All I need to say is your name
Jesus

If all is right
Or much at stake
All I need to hear is your name
All I need to say is your name
Jesus

When I say your name
I see wrongs made right
When I hear your name
I know everything’s going to be alright
When I say your name
If I whisper, If I shout it, If I sing it it’s the same
When I hear your name – Jesus
When I say your name – Jesus
Everything’s changed
