Songs of Spring to Warm Your Hearts

Spring in Auckland by Karl Hipolito

I know three songs that mention about spring, which I can’t forget. Each time I think about the words or sing it, I am deeply touched and strengthened in faith.

The following song lyrics remind me of the blossom of spring. Just click on the video to listen.


NO DOUBT

@ 3:13

There will be winters in the seasons of our soul
With a cold and bitter wind that chills our lives
But our faith can be building a fire
That will warm us till spring time arrives

This song by Petra is very encouraging. It tells us to hold on and be strong in our faith for help is on the way. Heart-warming, isn’t it?


EVERY SEASON

@ 2:42

Even now in death you open doors
For life to enter
You are winter

And everything that’s new has bravely surfaced
Teaching us to breathe
What was frozen through is newly purposed
Turning all things green
So it is with You
And how You make me new
With every season’s change
And so it will be
As You are re-creating me
Summer, autumn, winter, spring

Nicole Nordeham wrote “Every Season” for a friend whose husband died. She sang this first at the funeral. Nevertheless, I can find an all-season application for this song because I believe that God indeed is re-creating us as seasons change.


PASS IT ON

What a wonderous time is spring,
When all the tress are budding
The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming;
That’s how it is with God’s love,
Once you’ve experienced it.
You want to sing, it’s fresh like spring,
You want to pass it on.

Well, “Pass It On” has been popular in Christian camps. In fact, I could always feel the warmth of this music each time we sing it during bonfires.

I can relate more with the song’s lyrics about spring now that spring has come.

I hope you can feel the warming of your faith as you listen and meditate through these songs.

No Doubt in the Power of Jesus

PROLOGUE

March 10, 2011

I am a Petra Fan since 1985. Among my many favorite Petra songs, “No Doubt” is very relevant to my current situation.

We are embarking on several big projects for the family, projects that we pray would be very successful.

Also, beginning April 1, I will be on a new journey.  I resigned from Central Philippine University effective March 31.  I have started my freelance venture, starting a virtual company, Online Writing Niche.

I am looking forward to establishing an SEO Training Center, the Online Writing Niche Training Center where I will be sharing my online experiences to those who are interested, willing to study, and learn Search Engine Optimization.

Indeed, when you trust and have no doubt in Jesus Christ, all will be alright and everything will work together for good.

Play the song above and as you listen, meditate on the lyrics below…

There are times when you feel like you can’t go on
There are times when you feel like giving in
And there are times when you feel like you can’t try anymore
There are times of trouble in believing
This test of your faith will last
As long as it takes to pass
Till you have no more doubt you’ll endure
And your faith will emerge true and pure

(Chorus)
No doubt it’ll be alright
With God it’ll work together for good
No doubt in the end it will be understood
No doubt it’ll all work out
With faith He can move any mountain for us
No doubt in the power of Jesus
And after all is done we find out
All we really need to have is no doubt

There’s a time to take a reckless leap of faith
There’s a time to be cautious and to wait
And there’s a way of learning from the past
That this time of trouble won’t last
And sometimes we want to think we know
The ways He will choose to make us grow
But it’s never the way of our choosing
And we can’t always see what He’s using

There will be winters in the seasons of our soul
With a cold and bitter wind that chills our lives
But our faith can be building a fire
That will warm us till springtime arrives
Read the full lyrics below and take the blessings…

EPILOGUE

January 3, 2012

After resigning from CPU, the Lord God Almighty provided me a wonderful job as Project Manager of an Internet Marketing company based in Canada.

I left CPU with a bad feeling because after six years of hard work, instead of getting a promotion I was demoted both in position and salary without any valid reason.

However, God raised me up. He provide me a job, promoted me to manager’s position and raised my salary five times the rate that I was receiving from Central Philippine University.

Every time I recall what happened, I smile and give thanks to God because I have seen and experienced how the Mighty Power of Jesus Christ defeated the force of injustice and folly.

Victory is always yours as long as you firmly believe.

NO DOUBT IN THE POWER OF JESUS!
