If I Should Die Before I Wake

 

Hebrews 9:27-28 NLT

“And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.”

 

I want to be in harmony with my family

 

Family matters

Family matters can be difficult at times

Family matters until you check out

 

I want to leave with no regrets

 

2 Timothy 4:5-8 NLT

“But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you. As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my death is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.”

 

I want to be confident of where I’m going

 

Know where you’re going

Know how you’ll get there

Work the plan – get going

 

2 Corinthians 5:6-10 NLT

“So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.”

 

 

 

Worship Set

You Cannot Be Stopped

 – Chris Quilala, Hank Bentley, and Phil Wickham

 

Verse 1

 

The dark tried to hide You

And steal You away

Death tried to keep You

Inside of the grave

The enemy fought You

He tried but he lost

You cannot be stopped

 

Verse 2

 

When we cried for freedom

You tore down the walls

The weight of our burdens

You carried it all

Our fears and our failures

Hang dead on the cross

You cannot be stopped

 

Chorus

 

Mover of mountains

Breaker of chains

Jesus has triumphed over the grave

Sing hallelujah

The battle is won

Nothing can stand against our God

 

Verse 3

 

We stand on Your victory

And shout out Your praise

Miracle maker

You’re mighty to save

Awesome in power

Relentless in love

You cannot be stopped

 

There’s nothing that can stop our God

There’s nothing that can stop our God

There’s nothing that can stop our God

There is nothing (there is nothing)

 

Sing hallelujah

 

The battle is won

Nothing can stand against our God

 

 

10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)

 –  Jonas Myrin and Matt Redman

 

Chorus

 

Bless the Lord O my soul

O my soul

Worship His holy name

Sing like never before

O my soul

I’ll worship Your holy name

 

Verse 1

 

The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning

It’s time to sing Your song again

Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when the evening comes

 

Verse 2

 

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger

Your name is great and Your heart is kind

For all Your goodness I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

 

Verse 3

 

And on that day when my strength is failing

The end draws near and my time has come

Still my soul will sing Your praise unending

Ten thousand years and then forevermore

 

Worship Your holy name

Lord I’ll worship Your holy name

 

 

King Of Glory

 – Todd Dulaney

 

Verse

 

Yes the world will bow down and say You are God

Ev’ry man will bow down and say You are King

 

So let’s start right now, why would we wait

 

Chorus

 

King of glory, fill this place

I just wanna be with You, I just wanna be with You

King of glory fill this place

I just wanna be with You, I just wanna be with You

 

So let’s start right now, why would we wait

We can praise You now in victory

 

So I’ll sing hallelujah until You come again

And I’ll dance in Your presence until You come again

 

Sing hallelujah until You come again

Dance in Your presence, dance in your presence

Dance in your presence, dance in your presence

 

 

Almost Home

 – Barry Graul, Bart Millard, Ben Glover, Mike Scheuchzer, Nathan Cochran, and Robby Schaffer

 

Verse 1

 

Are you disappointed

Are you desperate for help

You know what it’s like to be tired

And only a shell of yourself

You start to believe

You don’t have what it takes

‘Cause it’s all you can do

Just to move much less finish the race

But don’t forget what lies ahead

 

Chorus

 

Almost home

Brother it won’t be long

Soon all your burdens will be gone

With all your strength

Sister run wild run free

Hold up your head

Keep pressing on

We are almost home

 

Verse 2

 

Well this road will be hard

But we win in the end

Simply because of Jesus in us

It’s not if but when

So take joy in the journey

Even when it feels long

Oh find strength in each step

Knowing heaven is cheering you on

 

Almost home

Almost home

 

I know that the cross has brought heaven to us

But make no mistake there’s still more to come

When our flesh and our bone are no longer between

Where we are right now and where we’re meant to be

When all that’s been lost has been made whole again

When these tears and this pain no longer exist

No more walking we’re running as fast as we can

Consider this our second wind

 

Almost home

Almost home

We are almost home

Almost home

Almost home

We are almost home
