Not God's Business, by DianaDee Osborne

NOT GOD's BUSINESS
ALBUM:      Amazing LORD 'n' Life
Song location  http://dianadeeosbornesongs.com/2009---2011-Song-List.php 
Song Story: 
         I needed a  thin binder for new band music, so was cleaning out papers from an old binder.  In it I found some music drafts from a year earlier that I had forgotten all about.  One was the first draft of this song.
        I liked the words, went down to my home studio, and started looking for guitar loops in my files that were in the key of C.  I liked the foundation one I've used, and then started hunting for bass loops... this song's was about the 3rd loop I tried... and I loved it.  I decided to use flute rather than piano for the melody, created high piano 'fill' and drum beats that matched the melody.... 2-1/2 hours later, I completed the song, including these final sentences for the music sheet:

“EPHESIANS 3:20-21... God is WOW.  Just ask Him...  When you invite God  'into your business' you will be UTTERLY  ASTOUNDED  by what He will do in  partnership  with you.  Eph. 3: 20-21 "for His glory''.

Dedicated to God,  15 April 2011, renewed 3 Feb 2012

LYRICS
1
God's NOT IN THE BUSINESS of preventing tragedy.
God's NOT IN THE BUSINESS of making our lives  here  happy:
    God has just one goal... that should be OUR goal:
     Relationship with God,  who loves you.
2
God's NOT IN THE BUSINESS of making us a big success.
By this worlds standards, the greatest FAILURE was JESUS,
    who died on a cross.   The world just won't see:
    Restoring you to God   WAS   His Goal.

CHORUS
John 3: 16  LOVE for you.
2 Peter 3: 9 LOVE for you.
First Timothy 2:4 LOVE for you ---
     but  you must pray Romans 10:9 ---
    Accept God's gift.   God gave YOU free will to choose
    YOUR OWN BUSINESS.


REFERENCES that are ESSENTIAL  to your life:
Deuteronomy 30: 19 and 20.
GOD IS SPEAKING:
     "I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that  I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose  life, that both you and your descendants may live;  that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He [is] your life and the length of your days...."

Hebrews 7:25;  Hebrews 7 and 8 explain why Deuteronomy 30 is ALSO promised to non-Jews.
CONCERNING JESUS:
"Therefore  He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them."
