The song lyrics linger with a reluctance to leave the divine divide between conscious and nonconscious thought. By now I recognize that this is just one more way that God speaks to me: through music and lyric and poetry and prose. I ask for understanding and patiently wait. Selah – a Hebrew word used in the Psalms meaning to stop, pause and reflect.
It makes no difference to me that the song would never be sung in a religious setting. Some of my greatest prophetic inspiration has come from music not written for the church. God speaks in a multitude of ways, if we but choose to be open and listen.
Leaving some of the lyrics here … to linger a while. Selah.
The Story Words and music by Phillip John Hanseroth All of these lines across my face Tell you the story of who I am So many stories of where I've been And how I got to where I am But these stories don't mean anything When you've got no one to tell them to It's true, I was made for you ... You see the smile that's on my mouth It's hiding the words that don't come out And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed They don't know my head is a mess No, they don't know who I really am And they don't know what I've been through like you do And I was made for you ...
Love & Peace,
My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all are written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:15-16.
