Song for Sunday and a Couple Books Too!

The Voice of Jesus by Andrew Peterson

I know you've been afraid
Don't know what to do
You've been lost in the questions
I don't know what to say
I'm sure if I were you
I'd proceed with some caution

But I want you to know
When the joy that you feel
Leaves a terrible ache in your bones
It's the voice of Jesus
Calling you back home

I know you've got a lot
Spinning in your head
All this emptiness fills you
Maybe you could try
Laying in your bed
To ask the silence to still you

And you might hear a beat
On the door of your heart
When you do, let it open up wide
It's the voice of Jesus
Calling you his bride

Once upon a time there was a little boy
Who wandered the forest, abandoned
And he heard in the leaves
And behind every tree
The sound of a secret companion

So listen, little girl,
Somewhere there's a King
Who will love you forever
And nothing in the world
Could ever come between
You, my love, and this Lover

So when I kiss you at night
And I turn out the light
And I tell you you're never alone
It's the voice of Jesus
Calling you
It's the voice of Jesus
Calling you his own

Such a sweet little lullabye!

He's written a high powered thriller series, Nathan McBride!
Part Jack Reacher, part Jason Bourne, Nathan McBride is a compelling, conflicted hero. Option to Kill is a masterful thrill ride. Definitely one for your keeper shelf. I couldn’t put it down.”
Steve Berry – New York Times bestselling author of The Columbus Affair 

Description: Book 1 in the series. When a deep-cover federal agent disappears along with a ton of Semtex explosives, the former director of the FBI calls in a personal favor. The missing agent is his grandson and he’s desperate to learn the truth, even it involves “bending the rules.”
Trained Marine scout sniper and CIA operations officer, Nathan McBride, had put the violence of his past behind him, or so he’d thought. Off the books, Nathan’s asked to determine the fate of the missing federal agent and recover the explosives.

But something deeper is going on. A lot deeper. Soon after Nathan accepts the assignment, he finds himself trapped between a ruthless adversary with a blood-chilling plan, and high ranking federal officials who will stop at nothing to see their own brand of justice done.

Happy listening and reading!
