Family Wisdom | November 22

13) Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14) But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15) Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16) For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17) But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18) Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 3:13-18 (NIV)

“Indescribable” by Chris Tomlin

VERSE 1:
From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation’s revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Ev’ry creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

CHORUS:
Indescribable uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful untamable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

VERSE 2:
Who has told ev’ry lightning bolt where is should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gave source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

CHORUS:
Indescribable uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful untamable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

CHORUS:
Indescribable uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful untamable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
Indescribable uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing God
Incomparable unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart
And You love me the same
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

“Good Good Father” by Chris Tomlin

VERSE 1:
I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think You’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper of love in the dead of night
You tell me that You’re pleased and that I’m never alone

CHORUS:
You’re a good good Father
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
It’s who I am

VERSE 2:
I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching for answers only You provide
Because You know just what we need before we say a word

CHORUS:
You’re a good good Father
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
It’s who I am

BRIDGE:
You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways to us
You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways to us

VERSE 3:
Love so undeniable I I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable I I can hardly think
As You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still
Into love love love

CHORUS:
You’re a good good Father
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
You’re a good good Father
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
You’re a good good Father
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
It’s who I am

To break every chain break every chain break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

There’s an army rising up

“Death Was Arrested” by NorthPoint Worship

VERSE 1:
Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin
Lost without hope with no place to begin
Your love made a way to let mercy come in
When death was arrested and my life began

VERSE 2:
Ash was redeemed only beauty remains
My orphan heart was given a name
My mourning grew quiet me feet rose to dance
When death was arrested and my life began

CHORUS:
Oh Your grace so free washes over me
You have made me new now life begins with You

VERSE 3:
Released from my chains I’m a pris’ner no more
My shame was a ransom He faithfully bore
He cancelled my debt and He called me His friend
When death was arrested and my life began

CHORUS:
Oh Your grace so free washes over me
You have made me new now life begins with You
It’s endless love pouring down on us
You have made us new now life begins with You

VERSE 4:
Our Savior displayed on a criminal’s cross
Darkness rejoiced as though heaven had lost
But then Jesus arose with our freedom in hand
That’s when death was arrested and my life began
That’s when death was arrested and my life began

CHORUS:
Oh Your grace so free washes over me
You have made me new now life begins with You
It’s Your endless loving pouring down on us
You have made us new now life begins with You

OUTRO:
Oh we’re free free forever we’re free
Come join the song of all the redeemed
Yes we’re free free forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began
We’re free free forever we’re free
Come join the song of all the redeemed
Yes we’re free free forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began
When death was arrested and my life began
When death was arrested and my life began

family groups

At New Hope we…

Elevate prayer, worship, and the Word
Enable each person and family to grow.

We believe that this happens best when you are connected to a Family Group. Family groups are communities that study the word, pray, and fellowship together every Sunday morning. Our groups are temporarily meeting online during this time, and we would love the opportunity to get you connected today!
