Mid-Day Music Break: Believer

 

 

I dream of tongues of fire
Resting on Your people
I dream of all the miracles to come
I hope to see the coming
Healing of the nations
I long to see the prodigals return
So many hopes and longings in You
When will all the dreams come true?

I’m a believer in Your Kingdom
I am a seeker of the new things
I am a dreamer with some old dreams
Let them now come

I hope to see You come down
Rend the mighty heavens
And let Your glory cover all the earth
To see Your sons and daughters
Come to know and love You
And find a purer passion in the church
These are the things my heart will pursue
When will all the dreams come true?

I’m a believer in Your Kingdom
I am a seeker of the new things
I am a dreamer with some old dreams
Let them now come
I’m a believer in Your Kingdom
I am a seeker of the new things
I am a dreamer with some old dreams
Will You now come

Mid-Day Music Break: Nothing Compares 2U

 

Recently, Jefe was talking with some of  his Ruiz primos about music and Chris Stapleton in particular. It wasn’t until he looked him up that he remembered hearing this tribute to Prince shortly after he died. Now for those that know Jefe, they know he can be somewhat unkind to people who cover other artists songs. However, Jefe was mesmerized by the soul and strength in which Mr. Stapleton sang Nothing Compares 2U. Jefe may not like some of the “new country” but thanks to Chris Stapleton, he has a new hope for not only that genre but music itself.

Midnight Music Break: Sleeping To Dream

JasonMraz

 

Throwing everybody for a loop with the first Midnight Music Break.  I thought it apropos to have a Jason Mraz penned song about sleeping and dreaming.  As a lyricist (as well as a singer and musician), I hold Mr. A-Z in highest of regard.   The way he structures a song and the way he delivers it can be both simplistic and beautifully complicated, especially with the help of one Toca Rivera and his amazing vocals.  Enjoy.  “…I don’t mind”

Mid-Day Music Break: Paradigm

In keeping with today’s post about life’s shifts, how wonderful to know that no matter what happens in life, God never fails.  Stand strong in the knowledge that He will never leave or forsake you. You may fail others.  Others may fail you. God is always there with loving hands wide open saying “I am the same today and forever”.

Mid-Day Music Break: Here Comes The Sun

LosBeatlesThose that know Jefe, know his affinity for los Beatles knows no bounds.  They also know he is a snob when it comes to covers/remakes of classic songs.

Jefe may have the worst of days but if he hears, Here Comes The Sun, his day automatically gets brighter (pun intended).  This beautiful version of said song is wonderful in so many ways.  If you live under a rock and never heard Here Comes The Sun, then you would not know the song is about hope and optimism.  What better place to play such song than an unemployment office.  I think people may miss the symbolic gesture when viewing the first time.  I shared this video with a friend and it went over her head.  That’s OK.  Funny, but OK.

On this Good Friday, be blessed to know that love still conquers all.  There is a hope in knowing that death could not hold him down.  The power of his love is still available to us all.  Look, here comes the son!
