Grounded For Life, by DianaDee Osborne

GROUNDED  FOR  LIFE  (Ephesians 3: 16-20)

ALBUM:      Amazing  Word 'n' Worship   
Song location

Song Story:  
        I was amused by a parent threatening his teen with this title phrase.  Humor inspired this quiet song that  directly quotes the Ephesians 3 prayer for the salvation of people we love and dearly yearn to accept Jesus as their Savior and their life-long Lord.  
       The music "just came to me" quickly when I checked my journal for an "unfinished son" 2-1/2 months later.  As in -- within an hour, it was completely sketched out the melody and chords.  Still amazed by God's giftings.  Still asking both my studios, "This doesn't sound familiar, does it???!"  And they who know lots of songs by lots of artists always say no.  Only Answer = God.
Dedicated to our Lord,God our FOUNDATION, 24 June 2010 lyrics, and 6 Sept  2010 music
I pray on knees that God grants you,
from God's riches of His Glory to be
strengthened with MIGHT through His Holy Spirit in you.
I pray you'll  let Christ dwell in your  heart.           

           Ephesians 3: 16 and 17.....
I pray that you will, by God's grace, be rooted and GROUNDED
in Love, to be able to comprehend with ALL followers the
width and length, height and depth of God's Love.       

                 Ephesians 3: verse 18...
I pray on knees that you will know
Jesus yearns to give you LIFE... that you'll
know His love passes understanding, and you'll
be filled with ALL of God's great fullness 

          He wants for Your life.   
                                Ephesians 3: verse 19...

    I pray you'll see God wants to
    ground you for LIFE, not death!
    Second Peter 3, verse 9.  God yearns to give you 

               Life that's grounded in God,
        Who CAN do Exceedingly, abundantly
        MORE than you ever could ASK... or think,  
            by His POWER  that works in You---  
            ----- IF you ask...       Ephesians 3, verse 20.

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, ...
that He would grant you... 
to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 
that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; 
that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 
may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the 
width and length and depth and height— 
to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; 
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  ...” Ephesians 3: 14-19 NKJV
