Tending the Garden of Your Mind

Following a Christian hip-hop song by our summer music interns, Erin Rose, our worship and teaching pastor, delivers another powerful word from the scripture about guarding our minds in Philippians 4:8.  

Here are the words from the song, You've Been Faithful by Eddie James

As I look back over my life
I can see how Your love has guided me
Even though I've done wrong
You never left me alone
But You forgave me
And You kept on blessing
This I recall to my mind
Therefore I have hope
It's because of Your mercy that we are not consumed
Because thy compassions fail not,
They are new every morning
Great is Thy faithfulness

You've been, Lord You've been so faithful


I can never repay You Lord for what You done for me
How You loosed my shackles and you set me free.
How You made a way out of no way
Turned my darkness into day
You've been my joy in the time of sorrow
Hope for my tomorrow
Peace in the time of storm
Strength when I'm weak and worn

Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

The Earth Shall Know - by Urban Doxology

Let us come on one accord
To lift up praises to our King
There is splendor and power all around Him

We will gather all together
Every nation, tribe, creed and color
Put our differences aside
And let our Father be glorified

And the earth shall know His name
And the earth will sing His praise
And all of the earth shall see
The grace of our God
Of our God

Though our appearances change
We are all the same
Saved in Jesus' name
We've been washed by the blood of the Lamb
For by Him we were created in His image
In His name
And through grace His grace
We are called to change
Communities together healing people
Meeting needs
Giving honor to our King

And the earth shall know His name
And the earth will sing His praise
And all of the earth shall see
The grace of our God
Of our God

Heal the land
Meet the need
Set the captives free
