Jim Reeves – How Long Has It Been lyrics

How long has it been since you talked with the Lord
And told him your heart's hidden secrets
How long since you prayed how long since you stayed
On your knees till the light shone through
How long has it been since your mind felt at ease
How long since your heart knew no burden
Can you call him your friend how long has it been since you knew that he cared for you

How long has it been since you knelt by your bed and prayed to the Lord up in heaven
How long since you knew that he'd answer you
And would keep you the long night through
How long has it been since you woke with the dawn and felt that the day's worth the living
Can you call him your friend how long has it been since you knew that he cared for you

    Yes there are a lot of meaning's between the lines of a song just take Jim reeves words and music they tell your story and you cannot help but to feel moved by them if you listen to your inner soul and not what some in this world want you to listen to. It is the right thoughts that counts, thoughts that are pure and meaning full to lift someone's spirt and yours. Some folk's just don't get it they much rather cut you or someone down without any thoughts of hurting others we all seem to know some like that. If a song moves you to do some thing for a friend or a love. Do it! Don't hesitate! Do it the and move forward to the next one. Why? Because god is opening your heart for other's to enter.

    You have been going through the fire. God is testing your faith, it is at times very difficult, because our emotions get in the way of our faith. Then his grace that never left us, shines into our heart's in the most simple way& we know the holy spirit is their holding us up through the entire process of refining us to increase our faith & trust in him (jesus) this is our growing place & it's very painful if it is spiritual warfare & all the firey darts are coming at you from all sides, yet the new dawn breaks & we are changed from glory to glory amen.
