Praises to my Father God,
the Lover of my soul.
Suddenly into His realm I am transported and
freedom wraps its arms around me,
holds me close tenderly
He removes the shackles which have bound me in despair.
Even as I serenade Him with my song,
He releases His Light into my bleak heart
And I embrace my God
With no shame,
With no guilt.
I know He loves me,
I know He does
Even though the world will stone me,
I know my God will stand in my defense,
He will shield me from the stones hurled at me
I know He loves me.
He loved me on the cross,
He loved me when I didn’t know Him.
He loved me when I shamed Him.
He loved me then.
And he loves me now
And from my heart the song rises
I sing my love song to Him.
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Who should call one thing “precious” and another “worthless”?
Think about all of which you have placed a price on.
In the big wide world full promise the selected few call life a playground. In the other part of the world where it's just a gray scale landscape.
A child is molested at a tender age, a teenager is raped repeatedly until she is with child and thrown out like a dirty rag – passers by call her.. “whore, worthless piece of trash, loose…”.
But who was it who ruined her young life? Who is to blame? A baby is born out of wedlock and called a bastard, the stigma will scar her all her life, the cross she will carry to the end of her life.
Human life is worthless but a nugget of gold found in dirty hole, in a third world country is tagged priceless and adorned with rubies and treated with care.
Who sets the standards?
Who gives him the authority to place value on anything?
Is the world’s standard final?
Should one gauge an object with the same measurement for a human life? Who rapes a child and calls her unworthy? Man.Who is man - is he not but dust himself? What is it you call worthy or place a price on? Is it truly priceless? When you would shatter a human life with no second thought why strive for wealth which is here only for a season?
Are our whims and fancies and every bead of sweat we strive to achieve in the only lifetime we have, worth it?
Will it pave us a road to heaven?
