Beyond the music Testimony through song is a book to encourage, empower and motivate women and men of today. To understand how ordained, how precious and great we are as children of God. We must discover the treasure we have within us. I have gone through experiences that have taught me the importance of my life and purpose God has for me. But before I was able to come to that understanding and realization I had to believe in whom God ordained me to be and not what people labeled me. I had to know my Identity in Christ.

Song of Declaration Written By Jennifer Meade - Published By Monia Publishing (Socan/BMI) Don’t give up on your dreams No matter what the forecast may be You can live your best life now It’s all about being happy With yourself and all your faults Don’t wait start now Take hold of the promises God has for you Seek and visualize they will come true Start today and live the life you desire Break the mold and rise above to victory To live your best life You must be sure in whom God made you to be What you believe is more than what they perceive It’s all about having faith

The Word

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (KJV) 1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

To be the best that you can be Don’t wait start now Take hold of the promises God has for you Seek and visualize they will come true Start today and live the life you desire Break the mold and rise above to victory Believe that God has more in store for you You’ve got to see yourself as he sees you He knows everything about you All your failures more so He knows your value Start today and live the life you desire Break the mold and rise above to victory

Quotes “The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.” - Elbert Hubbard “A winner is one who accepts his failures and mistakes, picks up the pieces, and continues striving to reach his goals.” - Dexter Yager

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (NIV)

age Of an old mentality Lord you know all that I’ve been through Living a life that was so untrue I couldn’t see right from wrong I was so confused If it wasn’t for your steadfast hand That led and kept me standing with my head held high It was your unfailing love that finally set me free

He gave me a new start a new song A new outlook to life I’m no longer prisoner to the thoughts That held me back inside Now I choose to live in a mindset That’s progressive and not destructive For that fact I know I’m free from the bond-

No longer tied to the past Your love has set me free renewed And that’s a fact ain’t no denying it

Refuse them and say I am loved oh yeah I am great oh yeah I am strong oh yeah In the name of Jesus I am gifted I am blessed oh yeah I am strong In the name of Jesus I’m gifted You can’t express defeat and expect to live in victory Or being surrounded by maybes and negativity You gotta stand up break through and take hold of your life By being positive, affirmative and determined

In This Life

Song of Reflection

Written By Jennifer Meade - Published By Monia Publishing (Socan/BMI) In life we all must face pain What makes you strong is not what you endure. But how you come through You told me you were going through hard times Know that it’s a test that life has thrown your way What you got to do to pass Is be the solution and not the problem And only through life challenges Can you experience change In life we all must face pain What makes you strong is not what you endure. But how you come through You said that you just want to get away I’ve heard that before The answer is not in running but confronting

The Word 1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. (ESV) James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (ESV) James 1:2-4 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

what you fear the most I’m talking from experience I know the cost One thing is for sure no matter how far You run the problem will never be solved In life we all must face pain What makes you strong is not what you endure. But how you come through Listen valleys are there to make you strong So you’ve got to face them head on Don’t you give up don’t you give in Till you reach the top of the mountain Hold on In life we all must face pain What makes you strong is not what you endure. But how you come through

And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. (ESV)

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (NIV) Romans 8:37-39 But in all these things we overwhelmingly

Identity

Written By Jennifer Meade - Published By Monia Publishing (Socan/BMI) There was this man who didn’t know his identity Depended on people just to find security Wants approval by always saying yes never no Compromised cause he didn’t want to be alone Everything he did never gave it any value Waited for someone to tell him you do Wants to be loved seeking others instead of God Compromised cause he didn’t who he was

Your identity is not your stability But a purpose that will unlock others’ destiny Yes a key designed for you by God Trust in Him and let Him lead the way Your existence is a link to your identity Take your place as the soldiers you were made to be Wants to be loved seeking others instead of God Compromised cause he didn’t want to be alone

Say & See

Song of Reflection

Written By Jennifer Meade - Published By Monia Publishing (Socan/BMI) As a human race we’re so funny Always ask for things yet not ready To receive cause we ask with such lack of belief If you ask and in your mind you’re doubting Know you’re blocking what you’re requesting So make sure you say and see And you’ll get everything you need You must focus and have faith

Then you’ll do the impossible So make sure you say and see In order to guarantee You must focus and have faith

Just say it can be done Just say you will succeed Believe in what you ask for Just believe

Just say it can be done Just say you will succeed Believe in what you ask for Just believe

There’s no way you can get anything in life If you don’t speak and visualize The secret is that you must be And you’ll receive what you believe You must focus and have faith

You’re the outcome of your belief system You get out of life what you put in The mind is a tool but if not well used Can be your doom You must see the invisible

When in truth we should be spending each moment Creating joy and happiness Don’t let life get the best of you Get the best of life It’s in those moments that we give life meaning And connect with other beings

What matters most in life is to love And be loved To give it full meaning By connecting with God What matters most in life is to love And be loved To give it full meaning By connecting with God

What matters most in life is to love And be loved To give it full meaning By connecting with God What matters most in life is to love And be loved To give it full meaning By connecting with God Don’t let life get the best of you get the best of life

We spend our time in worry and distress Chasing after status and success

Lucy

Song of Hope

Written By Jennifer Meade - Published By Monia Publishing (Socan/BMI) Lucy is her name She portrays a victim on life’s stage Always complaining justifying Never assumes responsibility Her whole life she focused on receiving Blessings not giving As long as Lucy sees the glass half empty She won’t succeed Lucy is her name She’s a type that never stays in one place Always fighting and yelling Causes a scene wherever she goes Easily swayed by her emotions And pressures in her life As long as Lucy keeps the same attitude She won’t settle down

Lucy by speaking Change will come Doubt keeps silent But by faith you will succeed You may be asking Can Lucy change her life change her ways Yes she can if she holds to The vision she wants in her life It’s not what she does But how she thinks that will make the difference The only person who can change Lucy Is Lucy herself

Welcome To Loveville Song of Solidarity

Written By Jennifer Meade / Dani Brazeau - Published By Monia Publishing (Socan/BMI) The youngest one decided that he wanted to venture on his own Asking his Father for his loaf He couldn’t wait to explore and be on his own Reluctantly the father gave him all he asked hoping that it all would pass Picked up his bag without once looking back Deep inside he knew And left the place that he once called home Welcome to love ville where everything is possible (x2) Welcome to love ville where everything is beautiful (x2)

He was all alone Left to think of what he’d done Father wont be proud of his son But instead he found his fathers with out stretched hand waiting for him to return the lessons here is once you realize put your pride aside and walk towards the place you call home..

The Word Psalm 103: 8-12 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek the LORD while he may be found;call upon him while he is near;let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts;let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind;love does not envy or boast;it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Quotes “There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.” Bryant H McGill “To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.” - Robert Muller “You can’t undo anything you’ve already done, but you can face up to it. You can tell the truth. You can seek forgiveness. And then let God do the rest.”- Anonymous
