I Am Love

girl and boy praying

I wrote the lyrics for this song reflecting upon my missionary experiences in South Korea.  It came into being after a lot of prayer and thinking how I could best communicate in the language of a child learning English as a second language. I kept the words short, so even children learning English could sing the song with ease and just have a lot of fun with it.

I have my own tune for it, but I’d like to see what tune musicians can come up with. It is about a child’s question, “Lord, how do I know You’re love?” and God’s answer. Please feel free to use this song for community or church fundraising with my blessing.

You could email me at hemingwayca@yahoo.ca with the mp3 file.  70 % of all  proceeds I raise  go towards local and international poverty alleviation. The remaining 30% will be dedicated for the rising costs of my health care for very rare medical conditions, and to support my wife and I through our Master of Divinity studies starting this January at Trinity College in the University of Toronto.  I will be continuing with the studies I had to put on hold eight years ago when I became too ill to continue.

I say a special thanks to Dr. Jonathan Prousky, who is the Chief Naturopathic Medical Officer at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and my intern, Karen Maloney. They and all the medical interns  have worked with diligence, professionalism and persistence on my journey towards my maximum wellness. Jonathan is an all around great fellow it has been my blessing to know for over 10 years. If you get an opportunity to go under his care, you will have someone who will be your coach as you do your part in your journey towards wellness. Of course, being the humble man he is, he would say that all the naturopathic doctors working at CCNM can help you. I fully agree with Jonathan’s belief in that statement.

Naturopathic care has given me back a growing quality of life that I feel demonstrates the healing power of naturopathic medicine. God is using them to improve my energy, focus and overall health.

If you think naturopathic medicine can help you in your healing journey, give them a call. Their phone number in Toronto is (416)498-9763.  You can travel there for treatment or they can refer you to a naturopathic doctor in your area.

I join with Dr. Prousky in fully supporting the great work of Mindful Charity to give all of our children back to us with the beautiful minds God gave them. That should be the journey we all take towards wellness of mind, spirit and body.

Please listen as Dr. Prousky speaks with passion about nutrition over the use of drugs for children with mental health issues.  He is an advocate for more creative solutions in helping children in distress that incorporates better nutrition and lifestyle, addressing issues in a child’s environment and how to de-stress the parents.

I was shocked when Dr. Prousky said 50% of a child’s caloric intake comes from sugar and unhealthy fat. He says that will not help a developing brain.

It startled me when Dr. Prousky said 20% of Canadians will develop a mental health problem within their lifetime. Think for a moment about that statistic. One in five of my fellow Canadians will become mentally ill. That’s shocking! We should do all we can to work towards a healthier society.

Everyone should have the opportunity for a good education and career. Then, we can truly work towards realizing the dream of Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela and Gandhi for  a more beautiful world where everyone contributes, where we all help one another in a spirit of love and brotherhood to soar to our potential.

Here is the video of Dr. Prousky speaking with Daytine Toronto host, Val Cole.

I rest myself in the hands of the Great Physician, because He is the greater healer of all.

I pray this song will be a blessing to your heart and your church.

I AM LOVE

Verse 1
Lord, I want to know
There’s a question on my soul
Please tell me precious Lord how You’re Love
Verse 2
Oh, my blessed child
Your question makes me smile
’cause you want to know
I’ll tell you how I am Love
 
Chorus:
‘cause water talks to the rock
Fish talk to the sea
Eagle talks to the sky
And when you see these things
you’ll know I am Love
Verse 3
But what about Christ your Son?
Your one and only Son
My teacher says that He’s Love
Verse 4
Oh, my blessed child
Your question makes me smile
’cause you want to know
I’ll tell you how my Son is Love
When the wise men came to a manger bare
They saw the baby Jesus there
And they offered to Him their gifts of love
Verse 5
Christ made the lame to walk
He made the blind to see
And He died on Calvary ’cause He’s Love
But don’t forget my child
In all things I’ve created I am Love
Chorus:
‘cause water talks to the rock
Fish talk to the sea
Eagle talks to the sky
And when you see these things
you’ll know I am Love

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. Kevin, I pray for you and and Karen. I hope to meet you both. I admire couples being used together by God. You are living your life to the fullest, continue fighting the good fight.

    • We too hope God opens His door of opportunity to see you and your family in person.

      I still haven’t heard from any of my prayer partners about your situation. I will be writing today to one key prayer partner, who has always responded favourably to the needs of others for help. I’ll keep you informed of any responses I get.

      Have any of my prayer partners emailed you?

      What’s the latest update on the situation with your family and with the aftermath of what happened?

      Marmar, thank you for your prayers. I feel many hands lifted up in prayer for us. I’m pleased to tell you that I am feeling much better. I’m still very sick.I think I have with God’s help turned a positive corner in dealing with my super combo respiratory bug and sinus infection.

      I’ll be sharing a testimony about the improvement with my bug and a physical miracle that happened in a piece called called “He touched me.” The prayers of I’m sure many people are being answered. Please continue to pray for us. The Enemy is afoot because we are seeking to shine for our Lord. The Prince of Darkness does not want us shining Christ’s light, but we will press on and win because God is on our side.

      Please pray we get more doctors for our area. We have a severe shortage of doctors in our town of Englehart and especially in remote regions of northern Ontario. Thankfully, one has arrived. She will be seeing me tomorrow morning. We’re praying that she accepts me as a patient. With my very rare medical conditions she agrees I need to be seeing a doctor, who will get to know how to care for me and coordinate seeing other specialists as needed.

      Yet, the greatest improvement to managing my conditions has come from naturopathic medicine. My health is like night and day compared to six months ago. Even with the bug I’m still able with God’s abiding grace to do His work for His glory. Karen is my co-partner in our marriage and the ministry work we do for our Lord.

      I really hope you and your family get to see Karen. I know you and they will love her. She is a gift from God. Karen has always been in my corner fighting for me and believing in me. I am richer in my life than the richest man in the world because our marriage is a God match. Karen would be the first to say she’s not perfect, but then again none of us are. She is perfect for me. We as Christians are all sinners saved by God’s unmerited grace, the free gift of His love and His compassionate heart.

      We take Romans 8:38-39 as our united testimony.

      “38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”(New International Version).

      The peace and comfort of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and your family.

      Kevin

      • I think of my circumstances as a test of character. Just help me pray that we can get a home before christmas.

        I’m praying for you and your medical conditions. Be strong.

        I would love to have a cup of coffee with you. Knowing that you are praying for me is so much of a comfort. Thank you.
