Three Times I Asked Him

by Lisa Olinda on October 6, 2014

Three Times I Asked Him is one of my favorite songs. I remember hearing Ann Gibbs singing this song when I was a teenager and listening to her testimony.

I sang this song after completing a 9 week course on the book of James Soaring Through Life with Wisdom and Grace. I was thinking of a special lady who has struggled with a physical problem that leaves her in constant pain. Her testimony is an inspiration to me to remain faithful to God through the trials of life.

Three Times I Asked Him Lyrics

Three times I asked Him,
Three times I begged Him,
Three times I prayed the prayer:
“Lord, relieve me of my suffering – Give me healing there.”
Three times He answered,
Three times He said it,
Three times I heard Him say:
“My grace is more than you will need, I give it every day.”

Some victories are absolute; the batter over and won.
But others we must face again; the fightings never done.
But in our weakness God displays the power He has to give.
To some He grants an end to pain;
To some the strength to merely live.

Three times I asked Him,
Three times I begged Him,
Three times I prayed the prayer:
“Lord, relieve me of my suffering – Give me healing there.”
Three times He answered,
Three times He said it,
Three times I heard Him say:
“My grace is more than you will need, I give it every day.”

In His Hands

by Lisa Olinda on September 29, 2014

I was going through my videos to watch and came across this video of our 2011 Easter Cantata In His Hands. Enjoyed seeing James and Brad in action as the keys players.

In His Hands

In this poignant gospel presentation, In His Hands, the writer skillfully weaves the perspective of two narrators (James Olinda and Brad Joines): one believing disciple, Jude, and one unbelieving disciple, Judas. Through a first-hand description of Christ’s ministry on earth, each narrator explains His miracles, healings, and personal experiences while watching the life of Christ.Set aside 45 minutes and enjoy this blast from the past.
