Anchor | Beautiful Eulogy, featuring Josh Garrels
Anchor of my soul, You sustain
When I’m in the storm, You remain, You remain
Good to me, good to me
…The blood that was spilled protects me
It’s the same blood that cleansed me,
My only defense against my nemesis.
Now I can rest,
Knowing that nothing can come against
Unless the Father gives consent.
Evil intentions will not disturb God’s purposes or interfere,
So who shall IO fear if my anchor is secure?
Learning to consider it pure joy when I’m facing tribulations—
Praising God instead of complaining and getting overtaken with bitterness,
Looking at the pages of the book of James and seeing the ways
That God works through the trials to make us more mature in our faith,
And it reminds me how desperate I am in this desert land,
Thirsty for Your mercy and plan
While You give me the strength to stand.
You’re my greatest pleasure, no matter the weather I face, Lord
You never forsake my fragile life; I’m safe under Your sovereign grace.
…You commanded the cease with ease and with words
You turn a wind to breeze.
Helps me understand that we stand on a solid Rock,
Not on sinking sand.
Through the providence of pain You perfect Your plan.
…It’s profound that with all these sinking ships around me,
He surrounds me and He anchors me with His grace abounding.
Good to me,
Good to me,
Good to me.
“Crazy story ---- so yesterday I mentioned that my car was stolen. Today my wife ran into a guy wearing an "Anchor" T-shirt and he claimed he bought it downtown from a homeless man for $1. We had a merch suitcase in our car with about 10 shirts and 10 or 15 Beautiful Eulogy CDs. What are the chances of my wife running into someone WEARING a shirt that was inside of our stolen car? haha. Crazy! We are praying that those CDS get in a few peoples hands and God uses the music to touch their lives.”—

Entitlement // Beautiful Eulogy
We worship how we feel, we don’t worship Who we should.
Yeah we got it bad, and if God calls it bad we call it good.
We covet what others have, grab whatever we can, whatever we want,
we think it belongs in the palm of our hands, going along with a song and a dance.
Worshipping idols to fulfill our entitlement issues.
Addicted to the feeling we get when we get what we want so we pick and we choose.
Even the air we breath is a gift we receive that we think we’re entitled to. Even the air we breath is a gift we receive that we think we’re entitled to.
And He still hasn’t wiped away all my tears yet my cheeks get wet every now and then. Even when I give my best I know I fall short I get scared when the balls in my court, focused on my performance, wretched and poor it makes the message more real when I preach it. I’m not there yet so I’m reaching, reaching for a goal, to stand before my King and be speechless. Then, never again will I question if his grace is sufficient to cover my sin. Cause death is gone, and all the effects of evil and wrong will be conquered when His kingdom comes. So this is my hope and my prayer. The air that I’ll breath in eternity with lungs that never fail me. If it pleases my Lord, and only by Your grace, use my life till it’s poured out for Your sake. Until then I’ll remain where You have me, with joy when I feel unhappy. And a peace that surpasses all my understanding, my life is in the hands of Your love everlasting.

Who shall I fear if my Anchor is secure!
Anchor of my soul, You sustain!

There’s no scientific system sufficient to measure the distance. Big words and images are limited descriptions. Primitive poetry poking at rain clouds with small sticks and can’t reach high enough to touch it, so we shake our fists and call it quits.
Kites and satellites, unimaginable heights, intangible unseen light made visible to human sight through the incarnation and life of Christ. Fulfilling the promise, faithful and flawless, the Son of God, living among the Godless and lawless lost in sins darkness. But he would shine regardless, of mankind’s infection and blind perception, rebellion and rejection. This is unblemished perfection, relentless love descended with the intention to shed his blood, for the purpose of redemption. Divine intervention, wrap your mind around how he laid his life down so sinners could be forgiven, every knee should bow before the risen. Now through faith and repentance, we can be accepted and enter the kingdom of God where we will sing along with endless, praises.
Who is God that establishes dominion over minions and is moved with creativity and decides to makes men in the image of him. With His words we created and rather than having an understanding of gratitude we became envious and we hated him. And since God is compassionate he condescended and become like us as a representative. Sent for the purpose to make atonement for his own elect and connect the most wrecked of men to throne room of the divine architect. And so the ineffable unapproachable God who invented space and the human heart invaded space to reach the depths of human hearts. Its all a part of his perfect plan sinners in the hands of God holding on a kite string. Connecting a redeemed humanity by the finished work the King of Kings.
