Last Will and Testament, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  Joy 'n' Choices   
Song location

Song Story:   A  10-minute prayer song from God at the altar... complete with melody.
Dedicated to our Eternal God,   27 September 2010
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is --- His good, pleasing and perfect will.”  --  Romans 12: 2 New International Version

I  ____ (fill in your name) do solemnly declare to the world
that as of this moment, I'm of sound mind, and
this prayer song is my TRUE will....
forever......    and ever.........      Amen.

If I should later    speak different words, that
FAKE,  a NON-legal will.  These
here are my words I declare with sound mind:
I  WANT  God's Help to obey Him....
forever......    and ever.........      Amen.

I yearn to live a life that's holy.  God
help me!  I know I'm weak-willed.  God,
strengthen me, make me determined to live
Your Way.... YOUR way....
forever......    and ever.........      Amen.

Sometimes I'm selfish.  Sometimes I say, “This
one little sin surely can't hurt.”  God,
that's NOT my will.  That's when I'm crazy.  I
BEG You, God, Hound me to obey You...
forever......    and ever.........      Amen.

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but
be transformed by renewing your mind.  Then
you'll do God's will.... God's good, perfect will.”   That's
Romans Chapter 12, verse 2.  God's Word....
forever......    Amen.

Warrior Churches (song), by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  Holy Spirit 'n' Church   
Song location

Song Story: 
When's the last time you heard a sermon about  Diotrephes?  
Probably never. We NEED to hear about Diotrephesian 
churches that BICKER and argue to have their own way IN CHURCH.
            Check out what GOD said about Diotrephes to warn ALL of us 2,100 years later..... the book of Third John, Chapter 1, verses 8 to 10.  God through Paul calls him a “MALICIOUS” CHURCH MEMBER “who loves to have preeminence among them...”   The church shepherd (pastor) didn't yet have the lead that God had entrusted to him in that church family ...

        Most sermons about the end of Ephesians 6 concern us as individuals praying for God's help in spiritual battles.  However, the chapter divisions are like helpful bookmarks, but not significant subject dividers.... Paul did not create them.
          This entire book repeatedly refers to The Church, the Body of Christ.  Yes, we can apply it to our own lives at home.  Yes, it does show us how to pray for God's protection.  But it's also directions for the CHURCH people as a group.  God through Paul is telling the entire CHURCH BODY to work and  pray   together  as
united --  not  unTied  --

Church  Warriors  for   God's Truth and Gospel
against God's very real enemy, Satan.
Dedicated to God, who calls churches that bicker "BABIES".   22 April 2011

“Worship Wars” is the phrase 

     used to describe how churches argue
about how, about when, to worship our Great King of Kings.
Matthew 16: 18's the first place where God says the word CHURCH,
and He says HELL there,  

              Warns Church to prepare...
Jesus warned,    “Beware, you Church!”

Some want red, some want blue, choir robes to sing praise to Jesus.
Some want old songs, some want new   to sing praises to Jesus.
Ephesians 4, God warns us, to UNITE with Truth and LOVE,
all knit together as one whole Body.
Ephesians 4:16,     a   “CHURCH”!

VERSE 3   = the Counter-singing part  below, which is sung again through 4 and 5.
 Group 1:                         Group 2:
I want red robes.                I want blue robes.
I want old songs.                I want new __
I want church early!            NO! I want   late   church!
            I want things    __ done  my.... way.
           I am smart,       I know what's  best.
           Would you please     give  me respect?
                   I want things     MY  way.
                  I know the     RIGHT  way.

   If I don't get ... my ... way,  ...I'll leave!   

God calls us as one Church to pray His Ephesians 6 Words.
WARRIOR CHURCH, fighting Night:
    CHOOSE to put on ARMOR of Light.
Pray for God's Truth, for that belt.
Pray for God's faith shield against hell.
Put on righteousness.
Shod your feet with peace.
God warns, UNITE in prayer, Church!  Fight hell!
God calls us, WARRIOR CHURCH, 

 to STAND against hell  PRAYING  His Words.
Make your battles against hell,  not in church walls against yourselves.
Ephesians 4, God warned us to unite with Truth and LOVE.
Put on salvation.
Raise high God's Sword, His Word.    

Ephesians 6:15,    PRAY!  Fight hell !

Stuck On Red (Country Humor Song), by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  Hope 'n' Humor   
Song location
CLICK HERE FOR country version --  AUDIO  download (FREE) 

and you can also CLICK HERE for ROCK version -- free music

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
The radio announcer really did warn the Capital City drivers to avoid a street whose light was “stuck on red.”  But obviously the warning came too late for those already there. I was driving in light traffic elsewhere, but my immediate thought went to all the trials and failures I'd experienced during the week... of how it seemed as if my life was 'stuck on red' with me going nowhere.

    Thankfully, God brought to my memory many other times when I'd felt that way... and later learned great blessings during the wait.  Back to Psalm 46:10, a frequent reference in my songs for a reason!  Blessings I never would have noticed if I'd been racing down my life's road without being forced to stop.  Have you ever noticed the second verse of the 23rd Psalm?

    The Lord MAKES us lie down by still waters to rest.... for our good.
But we must be careful to use the 'stuck' time to remember and talk with and follow our Lord... so we won't need to be stuck 40 years in our life's wilderness before listening to His wise and loving guidance.

Dedicated to our Lord, 15 July 2009

The Beginning
I kid you not -- the radio said,
“Don't take Main Street -- light's stuck on Red.”
That's all I need -- I'm  already here --
Trapped by a Red light,  no escape near.
STUCK at  a Red light,  no escape near.
STUCK at  a Red light,  no escape near.
Stuck on Red, I look AROUND.
People yelling, fears abound:  “How
can we get places in time when
stop lights stay on Red?”  we whine.
 “Why won't God un-stick me?”

Part 1
Stuck on Red, I look ABOVE --
See a sight I once much loved:
Glowing pink sky as sunrise dawns,
Soaring high song-birds floating along
Highways of clouds filled with joyful songs. (echo)
Stuck on Red, yet my hopes do rise!
My life's stuck on Red, but our GREAT God's not!
Proverbs 3:5, Yes, I CAN trust God when
My life's “stuck on red.”  That's rest Time.
Our God will  __ unstick me.

Part 2
Stuck on Red, I look BEHIND.
Think of failures, pains, my dark mind.
Just the thoughts tear at my once-broke heart.
How did I survive that?     Even part?
Psalm  One-Four-Sev'n:  Only God could heal my heart.  (echo)
Mired in mud, all my life seemed then.
I prayed to God, cried aloud to Him.
Like Psalm Fifty-Five,  I was not _ too proud to
cast my burdens all....   upon God. 
God proved He would.... un-stick me.

Part 3

Stuck on Red, I look AHEAD.
My life, my work often seem dead.  Where's
all that fun I once hoped Life
would bring me -- not more stuck red lights?
Dashed are old plans to proudly reach great heights.
(God has a plan to help me reach great heights.)
Stuck on Red, yet I must confess
Jesus brings JOY to my life's distress.  Brings
peace through sorrows, and abundant life, though
My life's stuck on red,  God brings Life.
Past joys proved God.... unsticks me.

Part 4 and More
Stuck on Red, I look WITHIN.
Don't like what I see -- fears, ugly sin.  That's
all I need - long guilt trip is here.
Trapped by self-focus, but escape's here.
God frees me when I ask__ Romans Eight: Two.  <8:2>
I stand in Christ's freedom:  Galatians Five.
Stuck on Red, yet my God's within,   since
I choose to give my life to Him.  

Sometimes God must send me stop lights to
make me rest and trust .....
God loves me.
Psalm 23,  verse 2 :    I'll rest on RED.      
“Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character,
and to find out whether or not you would really obey His commands...
He did it to teach you that people need more than bread for their life;
real life comes by feeding on every word of the Lord.” 
--  Deuteronomy 8:2 and 3b (but see entire chapter)

Logical Way To You, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  LORD 'n' Logic   
Song location

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
I'd  finished most of the song lines before searching Isaiah 9 to find the “Handel's Messiah” source verse that I remembered clearly SAYS that the Christ Child is SON and GOD and FATHER and COUNSELOR.  We know the Holy Spirit is our Counselor, from Jesus's words in John 14 and 15 (KJV).  When I found the verse that needed to be fitted after line i which ends in the Name,  “CHRIST,”   I  loudly said,  “COOL!   IT RHYMES!” 
 I did not PLAN that.    God clearly put the TRINITY into Isaiah 9:6 that all of Israel recognizes as prophecy of the coming Messiah.   Dedicated to our Logical God, 25 November 2012

   For there are three that bear witness in heaven: 
  the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; 
      and   these  3   are one.   
                        (JOHN 1: JESUS = THE WORD)

Let me tell you   ALL ABOUT YOU.  Tell you what YOU like.
Let me tell what will please you,
    anger or delight.
Let me tell you   what I do that _ makes you happy.   AndLet me tell   all people   what YOU  say and what YOU  think.
THAT'S  ABSURD!    Who but YOU can know what YOU think?
   YOU are the only    LOGICAL    

               WAY TO YOU.
NO ONE understands you, except only you.
Anyone who wants to know you must ask YOU.  And
YOU only are who can tell what you think!

    LOGICAL!        LOGICAL!

READING 1.       John 14: 6.  Jesus   is speaking ....
    "I am the way, the truth, and the life.
    No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Let me tell you all about GOD,”   Many people say.
YES, they may be educated,   and even make sense.
But no person REALLY knows God --- knows what God thinks ---
except His Son,  Jesus Christ,  Who  IS  God -- Isaiah 9.

Prophesied,  Messiah,  The One Way to God.
Jesus  Who IS GOD   is the One Way to God.
Isaiah 9: 6  says the SON  IS  Father God.
All who choose Him LORD,  Jesus tells Who God IS.  For
Jesus is God,   THE ONE WAY   TO know  God.
    LOGICAL!        LOGICAL!           


Isaiah 9: 6  --   GOD HIMSELF   is speaking this PROMISE to us ....
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor

                                                                                   [see  John 15:26 and 16:7],  
Mighty God, Everlasting      Father   , Prince of Peace.

John 10:30 "I and [My] Father are one."  -- Jesus
John 15:26,  "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me"  - Jesus

John 16:7  starting earlier:
1  "These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.
2  They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.  
3 And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.
...5  "But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, 'Where are You going?'  6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.

7 to 11  "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper  (King James Version = "COUNSELOR")  will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: "of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.    [Notice Jesus does not here say  "OUR Father"]

12  "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear [them] now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own [authority], but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare [it] to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare [it] to you."

Why Did David's Baby Die? by DianaDee Osborne

This song is about the history recorded in  Second Samuel 12.  
The story begins in Chapter 11.    CLICK HERE for God's Bible Telling.
ALBUM:      Amazing  LORD 'n'  LOGIC   
Song location

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
      I kept the motion of the melody very simple, a lot of "scale runs" (consecutive notes).  Not to make the song easy to sing,  but to make it easy to LISTEN to.  To avoid distracting listeners with "interesting music" so that they can't focus as well on the message of the song.  For this is truly an amazing song story.  Notice that the album is the LOGIC album.  I most assuredly am not super-intelligent.  The connections that I "suddenly" saw on October first were truly connections from God.  I've sought and sought and NEVER heard an acceptable reason from any preacher or book to explain "how could God DO this?"

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
    A lot of research went into this song.  Several translations of concordances were used a lot!   A lot of review went into this song --- a few “hard-sayings-Bible-studying Christ-followers who know I want honesty”  reviewed the lyrics for me. While praying.
    A lot of prayers for wisdom (James 1:5) goes into EVERY song I develop for LORD God,   for one of my deepest awarenesses is that  I  SHALL drift into  “The Error of human teachings”  instead of God's Truth if I depend on my own feelings rather than praying for God's wisdom as I craft HIS  Bible words (not just “ideas”)  into songs.

    The song idea itself is The Holy Spirit's guiding, I  confidently declare.  Persons for whom I cared deeply  kept telling me 
they questioned the ability to trust the Bible words 
about God's compassion 
when He would kill an innocent baby like David's.
    My seeing connections between these scriptures and the LOGIC that wars for the throne  like those of English history would have exploded  throughout Israel if this child lived to adulthood is the Holy Spirit's Wisdom, I  confidently declare. 
    Even trusting God when we don't have PROOF of His compassion -- though we have innumerable EVIDENCES of it both in scriptures and in our lives -- it itself the Holy Spirit's gifting, I  confidently declare.  We each can confidently declare.  
Dedicated to our Lord,

"My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways 
 and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”        
     ---Isaiah 55: 6 to 9, GOD SPEAKING  (New Living Translation)    CLICK  for others 
God is beyond human understanding.
That's why God is God, and we are Not The True God.
Isaiah 55 verse 8 ----  God's  thoughts are beyond ours.
    Even when we don't understand  ---
    Even when our thoughts  question God's Plan.
God's reasons are good and just --  Even though beyond us.
One thing God did has caused doubts in His love.
All  across centuries was asked,   WAS GOD JUST?
Second Samuel, Chapter 12 ---     WHY DID DAVID'S BABY DIE?
    Bathsheba's and his innocent child,
    conceived while her husband was   at war.
God's reasons are good and just -- Even though beyond us.

Second Chronicles 23 shows us,
in Verse 3 that great wars would have come in  Israel.
People fighting, saying this babe was not David's princely son.
    Was not Messiah's LINEAGE Son,
    But was really husband  Uriah's child.
God's reasons are good and just -- Even though beyond us.

This is NOT  an easy topic;  if it's not yet within your  'grasp'  ,  it's ok;  just pray James 1:5  and believe VERSE 6.  In the right time,  God will bring it before you for examination again --- if you are seeking God's Truth.               (continued......... > )

Second Samuel 11          New American Standard Bible - all
  ...... 26 Now when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband. 27 When the time of mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house and she became his wife; then she bore him a son. But the thing that David had done was evil in the sight of the Lord.
Second Samuel 12 
 18 Then it happened on the seventh day that the child died.....
24 Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and went in to her and lay with her; and she gave birth to a son, and  he named him Solomon. Now the Lord loved him .       
Jeremiah 33: 17  "For thus says the LORD: 'David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel...”
Deuteronomy 23 : 2        Persons Excluded from the Assembly
No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the Lord; none of his descendants....

If God had not brought this babe to heaven,
GREAT WARS would have brought death to 1000s of people.
And by God's law, the grown child 

could NOT have entered worshiping.
    Deuteronomy 23: 2,    Conceived out of wedlock =    banned from assembly.
God's reasons are good and just -- Even though beyond us.

  ISAIAH 55: 6 TO 9.   "My thoughts are nothing like your
  thoughts,"  says the LORD. 
  "And my ways are far beyond  ANYTHING     
                             you could imagine.”  -- ISAIAH 55.

Third of Despair and Hope, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  Peace 'n' Passion   
Song location

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
     The key change between verses was an "accident."  This is one of my first songs recorded at Valley Worship & Praise, and I was unfamiliar with the controller board.  I was supposed to hit the button for changing to an octave higher for the piano track.  SOMEHOW... I still don't know how except a "GOD-how"... I hit the button twice in 2 ways, adding the octave I expected but also transposing not 1 but  2  steps up.  We had already done all the other tracks before I finally figured out the cause of my confusion when my bass-playing didn't match the music for the second page.  So I kept the key change -- I quite frequently keep "mistakes" in my music thinking that perhaps they are God's guidance.
            And QUITE often, statistically more often than is human math, we later realize that the mistakes improve the song.
           The key change adds drama to the song that ** I ** didn't think of.  It's God!
Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
This is the true story behind how God started "my"  DiDoReflections ministry of music:
       God  used a story of snowballing horrible church events 

that caused me to have much heart-wrenching deep sorrow .... I even began joking with God that my tears at the altar might grow mildew under the carpet (see song "Broken & Healed Prayer")
into God's  music ministry through me that potentially could bring the MIRACLE STORY of God's yet-again-proven loving (living) 
FAITHFUL-NESS and HOPE to people around His World.

        This story contains too many coincidences to be mere coincidence... And in your life also, 

may you see God's miraculous workings to show You His love, to remind you of Jeremiah 29: 11-14.... He does have a great plan for you.  May the songs on  remind you of Romans 8:28 -- No matter what people and events do to you, God can weave that into the HOPE He has promised to you.
      May the many God-incidences reflected in this song also remind you ------
    God will answer YOU in the time of YOUR despair.  In life,  there will sometimes be sorrow, as Jesus Himself sorrowed -- for example, see Luke 22:44.  But 

with our loving God of HOPE,  
there is NEVER cause for despair amidst the sadnesses of life.
      You just need to humbly and respectfully ask God,   Who has already invited you:          Psalm 145:18 's   PROMISE   from God:  

“The LORD is near to  ALL   who call upon Him,
           To  ALL   who call upon Him in truth.”
Dedicated to our Strengthening God, 24 Jan 2010
1                              [7 March 2008]
It happened on the seventh... and ON THE THIRD DAY, God
sent to me a “man of God” who guided me and prayed.  A
man I had not seen for years but trusted with my life.  A
    man God knew I could turn to......... to survive...... this deep strife.
It happened in one March... and ON THE THIRD DAY,  God
opened a flood gate of songs to comfort Those Who seek.  A
flood to help them know God lifts us “Above Sorrow Sea”s!  A
    flood of HOPE-filled words from God.......  to survive...... this deep strife.
It happened in one March,  and IN THE THIRD MONTH,  I
yearned to serve God with His songs, but was completely stumped.  And
then God sent a web site pro to create this great site,
    Three months after heartbreak started..... 

               God brought the World....  songs of Light.
The third of three months   since heart break first began,  that
December God sent me a recording studio man,  a
God gifted man who loved God and as his ministry,  chose
    to serve God by recording.... God's songs of HOPE..... HOPE for You.
It happened on Good Friday, Jesus died upon that cross.  For
3 days, those who loved Him sorrowed,  grieving for their loss.  But
then Jesus arose again, victorious over the grave!  

Three  days after heartbreak started.... 
      Jesus proved God ..... does give HOPE.
No matter what your sorrow,          

       Jesus offers you His hope.       
John  Chapter 14, Chapter 15,      
                               and 16 give hope.  
Jesus said seek and you'll find. __ 

I'm here!  Just call to Me.  Choose  to believe  
       Jesus loves you..... and turns despair... into HOPE.

Supporting Scriptures:
Lazarus died but Jesus brought back life “on the third day.” 
Jesus died but returned HOPE to the world “on the third day.”

Whatever YOUR sorrow,  
       God will in your right   “third day” bring good out of it...
Romans 8:28.     CLICK HERE   for entire section about God's HOPE

And in the meanwhile, He immediately offers you PEACE.
     --John 14: 15 to 19

Check out some AMAZING verses about THIRD DAY -- including Hosea 6:2 prophecy:
starting with verse 1:   Come, and let us return to the LORD; 
for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.
After two days He will revive us; 
On the third day He will raise us up
       that we may live in His sight.  

  "oh  my  God...."  and this is a prayer of amazement,  not a careless phrase!

I Praise You "DESPITE" (Psalm 71), by DianaDee Osborne

I  PRAISE  YOU  "DESPITE"   (Psalm 71,  46:1)
ALBUM:      Amazing  Grace 'n' Tears   
Song location

 “But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.” – Psalm 71:14

“Why are you cast down, O my soul?  And why are you disquieted within me?  
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him 
for the help of His countenance.”Psalm 71:  5 & 11
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” --
Psalm 46: 1 RSV

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
Dedicated to our Lord, verses June 2007, chorus November 2008.
THE DEDICATION tells a bit of the song story:
This was among the first few songs that I  ATTEMPTED  to write
before God's Holy Spirit began pouring HIS power through me to
write His songs, beginning after that horrendous day 7 March 2008  
(CLICK HERE for full story that's told in  "THIRD OF DESPAIR AND HOPE").  
The music of these verses are,  honestly,  "blah."  
God's words are Great.  MY music isn't.  I'd been trying since June 2006 to write songs
(another song story.... I CHOOSE YOUR CHOICE:).  
           Thinking about these bad attempts........
      One day as I was SADLY praying, thinking of the         
            VERSES below with their   BLAH   music,
    Suddenly I just started "belting out" 
      with JOY the words *AND*  MUSIC
   that now make up the chorus.  Wow, It is
         truly, assuredly, without a doubt:
                      GOD'S SONG.                           

I praise You despite all the troubles I see.
I praise You
despite fears that urge me to flee.
I praise You
despite taunts by Your enemy
that say I can't trust.... in You.      
That say I'm a fool if I do.  
[see what Jesus said in John 8: 44 ]
But You are my Savior.  

You've loved me forever.
I insult Your love when I say “God won't care.”
I insult Your power when I think   my problems are
far more than I ...... can bear......... can bear.

I praise You
despite feeling sad and lonely.
I praise You
despite feeling very weary.
I praise You  TO  spite  tries by Your enemy to
    stop me from praising You,.....

          to stop me from loving You.

FOR  You are my Savior.
You've loved me forever.
I insult Your love when I say “God won't care.”
I insult Your power when I  think  my problems are
far more than I ...... can bear......... can bear.

   I can't unless ......... You...... help   me.

In This Day, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  Word 'n' Worship   
Song location

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
          While waiting for a church worship time to begin, I was flipping through the Bible looking for psalms that are not in the Book of Psalms.
          It certainly seems that God guided me to this one, because the song just flowed out in minutes,  -- in the words of God's Word, in an easy 4/4 rhythm.  The next day I sat at the piano before band practice and quickly sketched out the melody and  chords.  Yet another song that is surely not mine but our Lord's :)
Dedicated to our Forgiving Lord, 11 Sept  2009

In this day, I shall say,
“O Lord, I WILL PRAISE     You!
I have sinned.  Though You were angry,
with me, Your anger turned away!
Behold, God is my salvation.  I will
trust and not be afraid!  For
You the Lord are my Strength and Song.  You
also have become my salvation!”
Therefore with joy, I will draw water from the
wells of God's salvation!  And
in this day, I shall say,  “Praise the
LORD, call upon His name.
Declare God's deeds among all peoples.  Make
mention that God's name is exalted!  Let us
sing to the Lord Who has done excellent things!
This is known throughout all the earth!”

Isaiah 12,  verse 1 through 5. 

ISAIAH 12:2:    “Behold, God [is] my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; 'For YAH, the LORD, [is] my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.”   (NKJV)

Psalm 96 Bass Jammin Praising, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  Psalms 'n' Promises   
Song location
Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
      Claxton Wilson, my Studio #2/Master Studio Producer, was just playing bass riffs one night during our break.  I asked him to record a track, went downstairs for coffee, came back and took his track home with my new songs. A few days later, I finished adding jazz piano bits,  drums, and counter-part  horns.  Later found this Psalm to fit in words From God.   Another song written in less than two hours.  Another gifting song from God.

Psalm 96:  1-6.   Oh, sing to the LORD a new song!
Sing to the LORD, all the earth.
Sing to the LORD, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.
For the LORD [is] great and greatly to be praised;
He [is] to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are IDOLS.
But the LORD made the heavens.

Honor and majesty [are] before Him;
Strength and beauty [are] in His sanctuary. 

Praise Him!   Praise Him!
Praise God all ye people of the entire earth.

Praise Him!   Praise Him,  the LORD who made earth.
Give glory to the LORD God.  
Give Him worship,  Honor.     He is 
Majesty,  God Who rules  ALL nations,  
the King   AND   Judge.
  Holy is The LORD God.  
God is judge over all.  Majesty.
Psalm 96, God is coming to reign!  
Coming to the earth to judge all
with His righteous TRUTH.  God brings salvation!
  Psalm 96, God is LORD of Nations!
Praise Him!  Praise Him!   God   is   THE   LORD.
  God is THE One  God!    God is  THE  One   God!

“Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.
Say among the nations, 
"The LORD reigns; The world also is firmly established, It shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously....For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.”
-- Psalm 96: 9 & 10  (our "job" =  to tell the WORLD about God),  and 13,  For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.

In God's Eye (Classical), by DianaDee Osborne

IN  GOD's  EYE   JOHN 16:33 (Classical) 
ALBUM:      Amazing  Creator 'n' Critters   
Song location

Song Story:  The  Confession:  
Somehow I recorded this entire song with the wrong scripture reference:
It should be John 16:33,  not Chapter 17.  So I pray God helps people "figure it out" since there aren't that many verses in 17.  That they find His RIGHT word despite my mistake.  Another evidence of how much we... I... need His wisdom....
Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   I literally sat at my home studio keyboard controller and was just  “playing” with various chord progressions when this music began to “unfold.” In a few  hours.  This is God's beautiful work.... I just developed His wonderfully creative  ideas.

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
          Not surprisingly, this song was written during a series of dangerously fierce  thunderstorms, rather unusual in December in this part of the world.  Verse 2 was written after the Day of the Tornadoes, when I was in Alabama, USA  (April 2011).
       Since the power had gone off hours earlier -- we were sure the storms were OVER at 2 PM, and we went shopping for food supplies.  The worst storms hit less than an hour after we safely got back to our sheltering house.  We've talked to other people -- Most did NOT know that worse storms were coming.  And -- in our lives-- we never know.  But God is ALWAYS waiting to shelter us.  Matthew 23: 37 has a beautiful picture of Jesus's welcoming arms for you.
         More than that.... this was a song gift from God  during a HURRICANE within my heart...  As I wrote and prayed AMID the storm outside me and the storm within me, God brought this to mind:--- 

No matter where we are, whatever the storm, 
Jesus CAN and  WILL  still do what He promised in John 16:33 -----
Jesus still overcomes whatever the world tries to pound against us.  
Even YOUR,  your..... hurricane  tribulations   and thundering sorrows.   
Dedicated to God,  9 December 2010, renewed 19 July 2011
Jesus:   “In the world you will have tribulation, but BE OF GOOD CHEER:
I  have overcome the world.”   -- John 16: 33  NKJV

In the eye of a hurricane, we may feel peace and calm.  

NOT knowing that the FIERCEST winds and
storm are soon to come.  But
IN GOD'S EYE we have peace and joy,  

           resting in  His LOVE.
In the eye of a hurricane, a FAKE peace can surround  us. 

We don't believe that the WORST storm yet is
about to crush and pound us.  BUT
IN GOD'S EYE we are safe from all 

           hurricanes and Life storms.
In God's eye the worst thunderstorm is  just  a gentle shower.
God calls us through Ephesians 6:  "Just
ask God for His Power.
GOD'S EYE ROAMS across this earth, 

              seeking who will bow to Him.

Jesus called to the raging storm,  

"Peace, be STILL I say!"
Jesus calls to US, "PEACE, BE STILL.."  

Life's storms come your way.  When
you choose to stay IN  GOD'S   EYE,

    He will give you     TRUE PEACE    .

Jesus said,   “In this WORLD   you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer:
            I  have overcome the world.”   -- John 16 verse 33
Jesus said,   “In this world  YOU   will have tribulation, but be of good cheer:
            I  have overcome the world.”   -- John 16 : 33
Jesus said,   “In this world  you will have TRIBULATION, but be of good cheer:
            I  have overcome the world.”   -- John 16 : 33
Jesus said,   “In this world  you will have tribulation, but be of good CHEER:
            I  have overcome the world.”   -- John 16 : 33
Jesus said,   “In this world  you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer:
            I  ...  I .... I,   have overcome the world.”   -- John 16 : 33

READING AFTER VERSE 2:     (during storm music)
No matter WHERE we are, whatever the storm, Jesus CAN still do what He promised in John 16:33.  Jesus STILL overcomes whatever the world tries to pound against you -- even hurricane strength tribulations and thundering sorrows.....
