how will you grow?

This week I’ve been away at a worship leaders conference called ‘The Week’ down in Birmingham with Worship Central.  It’s been such an amazing time: incredible, incredible teaching, and such sweet times of worship.

One of the images that Ken Costa shared was about how the hopes and dreams each of us have are sort of like acorns.  These acorns can either die as young saplings, or grow into strong oak trees.

I don’t know about you, but I want all of my hopes and dreams to grow strong…

*Song* – ‘Thorns/Flourish’

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been experimenting with a little piano part, and out of it came this song.  I’ve called it ‘Thorns/Flourish’.

It’s really just a song of hope: a prayer for you (and me) to hold onto hope, even when bad thoughts and feeling are trying to drag us down and take over us.

You can always have hope.

Lyrics:

My head’s the place I hide away
When my eyes can’t believe what they have seen.
My head’s the place I make a home,
Where seeds that I have planted grow
And bear no fruit that I can eat but
Thorns which wrap around my feet,
But…

Hold on my dear;
You can flourish even now.
Hold fast to hope.
Thorns can make a golden crown.
A golden crown.

So take your time; it’s what you do.
I will be waiting right here
‘Til you say ‘yes’ to yourself,
Believing you were made the best,
And you’ll grown a new heart,
One that thorns can’t tear apart…

Hold on my dear;
You can flourish even now.
Hold fast to hope.
Thorns can make a golden crown.
A golden crown.

Hold on my dear;
You can flourish even now.
Hold fast to hope.
Thorns can make a golden crown.
