Life Anthems

Life is dynamic. Things can change at a moment’s notice and plans you had can turn on their heads and never be right again. Things could go so well that you are surprised and flustered at the same time. In my view, there is nothing good or bad in life unless God calls it that.

In this season of dynamic change, I have realized many things about life. Life is nothing without God. There is nothing to live for without God. There is only darkness in my way without God. There is no joy or laughter without God. Solutions are neither fulfilling nor lasting without God. My belief in God is pegged on me and him and not what others think about him. The best measure of who I am and who I will become is in God.

Suffice it to say…there is nothing worth living without God. There are songs that are appointed to be the theme of a season. In my current season, one of the anthems is Without You – Artist: Shekinah Glory Ministry

I have heard this song many times before but in this season it has come alive in ways I will try to explain. The journey thus far has been interesting and hard all in one. It has been a season to choose between what looks normal and the word God has spoken to me over the years. I have had to choose between what used to make sense to my mind and what I would want and the spoken word of God. It has been a time when I have spent time evaluating the path he has set me on and made the choice to keep walking with him.

I have made the choice so surrender everything and hold nothing back from him. Left room for him to do what he wants even when I hurt and for a while it hurt then I realized that nothing he does is malicious or intended to hurt me. I realized that it hurt to let go because I was holding on too tight.

If only I could be like Abraham who in the hardest moment of his life when God asked for his son he trusted God no matter what. Or could I be like David who was told he would be king but he was hunted down like a dog by his best friend’s father yet when his hunter died, he wept for him and kept his word to his best friend. Or be like Hosea who under instruction married a harlot because it was God’s instruction and went out after her over and over. Or be like Mary who in the face of a possible stoning for infidelity declared that her son was divinely conceived and trusted God to lead her to the safe delivery of the same.

I am fully convinced that without God…none of these things would have been possible in the lives of these men and women and the course of history would have been different. So it got me thinking…what do I need to understand about life that will allow me to be all I need to be and leave the legacy that I was created to leave? I came fully loaded with everything I need for the divine purpose on my life however, great choice he has set before me is to connect fully with him and allow him to work through me.

Truly, without God, I am nothing. I am who He says I am, I am becoming who HE said I will become. So without Him…I can’t live, I can’t move, I can’t function….


Without You – Shekinah Glory

Without You (life would be full of sorrow and pain)
Without You (there would be no sunshine after the rain)
Without You (my life would simply go down)
Without You (there would be no cross or even no crown)

Can’t live, (move) can’t move, (function) can’t function (without you in my life) without you in my life x2

Without You (there would be no grace and no mercy)
Without You (Lord, my life would be simply empty)
Without You (there would be no hope for a brand new day)
Without You (couldn’t be able to find the words to say)

Can’t live, (move) can’t move, (function) can’t function (without you in my life) without you in my life. X4

Oh Lord, You were the reason why I can reach up and touch the sky
You are my everything x2
Lord, You pick me up, whenever I’m down. I’m so happy that you’re around.
You are my everything x2
Lord, please don’t let me go. Oh Lord, I love you so.
You are my everything x2
I can’t live, I can’t move, I can’t function without your love.
You are my everything.

(I can’t live) Can’t live, (I can’t move, no) can’t move, (I can’t function) can’t function (without you in my life) without you in my life. X4
