a better way

If you haven't listened to any of Jason Upton's prophetic music.... let me just say that you should. the lyrics, the passion, the yearning to become closer to our father are immensely powerful. the lord is using him, as well as other worshipers and singers like Misty Edwards and Rick Pino to bring forth truth and the word of God to our lives. developing a certain level of intimacy&relationship with Jesus, our best friend, is so important.

I was listening to jason's open up the earth (disc 2) cd and the fourth track a better way is simply reaching the inner parts of me. it is true, Jesus is SHOWING US A BETTER WAY! he is alive, living, in us. everyday... when we read the word, pray, talk with those that encourage us; he is showing us how to become carriers of his word and his desires. he died for us and rose again!

seek the father. seek your father. we are his sons and daughters.

come to him. don't be afraid. he wants you to run to his arms and be close with him.

luke 11:5-10 and he said to them, "which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, 'friend, lend me three loaves;

'for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and i have nothing to set before him';

"and he will answer from within and say, 'do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; i cannot rise and give to you'?

"i say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.

so i say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. for everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened."

i would have given you a youtube video on this of the song, but unfortunately i couldn't find the song as a video. it is on itunes however. thanks for reading.

"... cry out from the broken us a better way, we're crying out, crying out, please show us a better way...theres gotta be a better way... break the chains, break the chains, break break break the chains!... show us the better way...walking with you father God, walking with you father God..." ~jason upton
