JD Chandler "Lord Undo Me" by K-LOVE Radio

I don’t really worship these day
I don’t really stand up to praise you with songs
Or prayers or actions
or with anything
I am full of all the right moves
I am full of all the right words
I am full of all the right religion
But it is all just illusion
I am really
Lonely
Lost
Calloused
Jaded
Cynical
Too religious
Too realistic
and well really just to lazy
to worship you anymore
I have lost my first love
I have lost the joy of your presence
But most of all I have lost the fear of your glory

Father I need to see you again
Like Isaiah I want to stand in awe of your glory
To fall down at your feet
To come face to face with your
Perfection,
Radiance,
Goodness,
Holiness,
Awesomeness
I want to stand before you and see you for who you are
and me for who I am
I want to be undone

I want to know me for who I really am
I want to see the depths of my heart
And know that you are the only way
You are the only truth
You are the only life
I want to see me and understand
What it really must have taken for you to
Love me
Care for me
See me
Speak to me
Want me
Communicate with me
Die for me
Die for me
Die for me

Lord, I want to stand in that place where all I can see is your glory
And my sin
Because in that place I can’t help but worship you.
Lord let me come undone
Undo my heart
Lord, undo my heart
break down these walls that I love so much
No, wait don’t,
I’m scared I don’t know if I can handle this
don’t
But I can’t live this way anymore
I can’t stand here in this half-life
this going through the motions life
this not really alive life
Father, I need you so come in and do what you must
Cut out the tumor on my heart
Break down the walls that I love
Lord let me come undone
Undo my heart
let me worship you again

Bold Quotes

If anyone tells you that you can’t possibly do something…read some of these bold statements!

"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home."
-- Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC), maker of big business mainframe computers, arguing against the PC, 1977

"We don't like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out anyway."

"To place a man in a multi-stage rocket and project him into the controlling gravitational field of the moon where the passengers can make scientific observations, perhaps land alive, and then return to earth--all that constitutes a wild dream worthy of Jules Verne. I am bold enough to say that such a man-made voyage will never occur regardless of all future advances."
-- Lee deForest, American radio pioneer and inventor of the vacuum tube, 1957

"You ain't going nowhere, son. You ought to go back to driving a truck."

"Dear Mr. President: The canal system of this country is being threatened by a new form of transportation known as 'railroads' ... As you may well know, Mr. President, 'railroad' carriages are pulled at the enormous speed of 15 miles per hour by 'engines' which, in addition to endangering life and limb of assengers, roar and snort their way through the countryside, setting fire to crops, scaring the livestock and frightening women and children. The Almighty certainly never intended that people should travel at such breakneck speed."

Kids Do The Funniest Things!

A couple of years ago, my little girl Layla started changing her name. First, she was Penny Taylor and then, Rachel Cortez! We have no idea where she got those names!

Do you have a funny story to share about something your kids (or grandkids) have said or done?

Top 5 Unusual Jobs

 

If you think your job is weird, check out some of these!

1. The world's fastest wedding chapel 

Rev. Darrell Best, of Illinois, converted his 1940s fire truck so that he could help couples tie the knot while they're on the road. The vehicle is capable of doing 62mph and several of the ceremonies have been conducted at this speed with the bride and the groom, the two witnesses, and the minister all in the back. 

 

2. Egg Breaker/Smeller

The smell of rotten eggs is absolutely awful, yet there are people that make a living detecting this odor. Egg smellers, also more pleasantly known as egg breakers (but with no less unpleasant duties), are employed to separate yolks and whites for use in food products and sniff out the bad eggs in the batch. 

3. Shark Tank Cleaner

Window cleaning is probably not the most fun of professions. Now add to that the requirement to share your job with one of nature’s most deadly predators while simultaneously being watched by a crowd of onlookers, who are curious if you’ll get eaten. You’re about to enter the world of shark tank cleaning.

4. Worm Picker

To catch a fish you must first catch a worm…or get somebody else to catch it for you. That’s right, for the princely sum of as much as 4 cents per worm you can make your living crawling across Canadian farm fields pulling up wiggling bait and stuffing them into a cup.

5. Bicycle Taxi Driver

Although companies in New York City claim their drivers can make $30 to $40 per hour, in most cities you'll make half of that if you're lucky. The good news is that you'll be trained on the job and see the business from the inside. Invest in a few bicycle taxis of your own and soon you'll be collecting a larger share of that dollar-per-minute average charge paid by passengers.

"Lord Undo Me"

This is a prayer I heard that I want to share with all of you...

I don’t really worship these day
I don’t really stand up to praise you with songs
Or prayers or actions
or with anything
I am full of all the right moves
I am full of all the right words
I am full of all the right religion
But it is all just illusion
I am really
Lonely
Lost
Calloused
Jaded
Cynical
Too religious
Too realistic
and well really just to lazy
to worship you anymore
I have lost my first love
I have lost the joy of your presence
But most of all I have lost the fear of your glory

Father I need to see you again
Like Isaiah I want to stand in awe of your glory
To fall down at your feet
To come face to face with your
Perfection,
Radiance,
Goodness,
Holiness,
Awesomeness
I want to stand before you and see you for who you are
and me for who I am
I want to be undone

I want to know me for who I really am
I want to see the depths of my heart
And know that you are the only way
You are the only truth
You are the only life
I want to see me and understand
What it really must have taken for you to
Love me

Lord, I want to stand in that place where all I can see is your glory
And my sin
Because in that place I can’t help but worship you.
Lord let me come undone
Undo my heart
Lord, undo my heart
break down these walls that I love so much
No, wait don’t,
I’m scared I don’t know if I can handle this
don’t
But I can’t live this way anymore
I can’t stand here in this half-life
this going through the motions life
this not really alive life
Father, I need you so come in and do what you must
Cut out the tumor on my heart
Break down the walls that I love
Lord let me come undone
Undo my heart
let me worship you again
