Starting of a Day

The Magnificat

My soul glorifies the Lord

and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior

for he has been mindful
of the humble estate of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me --
holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him, 
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but he has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but he has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors." - Luke 1:46-55

Magnificent was inspired by the Magnificat, a passage from the Goepel of Luke in the voice of the Virgin Mary...There's this theme running through the album of surrender and devotion and all the things I find really difficult." - Bono

I was born
To be with you
In this space of time
After that and ever after I haven't had a clue
Only to break rhyme
This foolishness can leave a heart black and blue

Only love can leave such a mark
But only love can heal such a scar

I was born to sing for you
I didn't have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb my first cry, it was a joyful noise

Justified till we die, you and I will glorify
The Magnificent

Worship today for you have been given the Spirit of the living God.

Sing today for your life are a joyful poem when you follow the rhyme of the Creator. 

Rejoice for the Grace that is new today!

Amen...and thank you. The crazy thing...I ran up the hill today, singing "Magnificent". It was a "wake up and feel awful about the day" kind of day and I'm so glad that's changed now. Oh, for grace.

The 100% fact of The Bible
"Without Serpent/Satan The Bible would end on Page 2 with something as this...
"And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed and they lived happily ever after
