Graceful Praise

Verse 1
I've been through the fire, I've been through the rain
I've been broken and battered, but I'm still standing again
You can't break me down to nothing, no matter what you try
My faith has overcome it, I won't say goodbye

Chorus
We'll seek, and we'll find, the promises you've made
We'll walk around the walls, that stand in our way
Be strong and courageous, be warriors of faith
We'll believe the word of God, and live by its truth and grace
I'll meditate on His word, speak it by my lips
Believe it in my heart, and let my spirit lift
I'll live by elevating His word, it's the only way
I'll rise above the noise, and shine His light each day

Verse 2
I've been through the darkness, I've been through the pain
But I won't let it define me, I'll rise above the shame
I'll hold on to His promise, I'll stand on His ground
I'll let my faith be the anchor, that holds me unbound

Chorus
We'll seek, and we'll find, the promises you've made
We'll walk around the walls, that stand in our way
Be strong and courageous, be warriors of faith
We'll believe the word of God, and live by its truth and grace
I'll meditate on His word, speak it by my lips
Believe it in my heart, and let my spirit lift
I'll live by elevating His word, it's the only way
I'll rise above the noise, and shine His light each day


Bridge
The world needs you, it needs your light
Don't let the darkness dim your shine
You are the hope, you are the way
Rise up, and let your faith be the guide

Chorus
We'll seek, and we'll find, the promises you've made
We'll walk around the walls, that stand in our way
Be strong and courageous, be warriors of faith
We'll believe the word of God, and live by its truth and grace
I'll meditate on His word, speak it by my lips
Believe it in my heart, and let my spirit lift
I'll live by elevating His word, it's the only way
I'll rise above the noise, and shine His light each day


Outro
I'll stand tall, I'll stand strong
I'll let my faith be the song
That echoes through the land
I'll live by His word, hand in hand.

Walls of Faith

Verse 1:
In the house of God, we'll find our way
I’ll raise you in church
Where love and faith will guide them every day
I'll teach them to pray, to trust and to obey
And in His word, they'll find their path to stay

Chorus:
Raising my kids in church, where they'll learn to stand
On the rock of faith, with a heart that's grand
In His presence, they'll find their way
Raising my kids in church, every single day

Verse 2:
We'll sing His praises, we'll lift our voices high
We'll learn to forgive, to love and to deny
The world may try to lead them astray
But in His truth, they'll find their way

Chorus:
Raising my kids in church, where they'll learn to stand
On the rock of faith, with a heart that's grand
In His presence, they'll find their way
Raising my kids in church, every single day

Bridge:
Through life's ups and downs, they'll find their strength
In the love of God, they'll find their length
And when they're old, they'll look back and see
The faith that was planted, will forever be

Chorus:
Raising my kids in church, where they'll learn to stand
On the rock of faith, with a heart that's grand
In His presence, they'll find their way
Raising my kids in church, every single day

Faithful Roots

I can't breathe
And I can't seem to find the words
suffocated by my own sorrow
too weak to carry on
left with no desire
sheer darkness in the storm


Chorus:
I fight my battles on my knees
as I reach out my hands for you
I pray in desperation
a plea of mercy for my soul
every broken whisper unheard
only you can move the mountains
as I cry out for you, the healing power of prayer


rock bottom knows my name
be my refuge from the pain
redirect my broken heart.
give me patience in every struggle
and Holy waters to cleanse my soul
in repentance I find salvation.

(Repeat chorus)


I am driven to despair
the trembles and quakes in me
filled with unanswered prayers
there's purpose behind every problem
I'm reminded that, you are always in control
no struggle lasts forever
you have a firmer hold on me

(Repeat Chorus)

The tears that ran down
they watered the seeds
to grow my faith in the righteous truth
I have trust in your perfect timing
even when I don't understand your plan
to open up new doors.
from the cross to the grave
you rolled away that stone for me
I surrender it all to you
and rejoice in your mighty name
as you heal this season of life
and finish writing my story
the perfector of all glory
I will wait on you.

(Repeat Chorus)

About Me

Bio

Hi! My name is Debbie Presley. I am a woman who wears many hats - a devoted mother of 4 amazing kiddos, a cherished daughter & above all, I am a believer who loves Jesus and lives with a God-fearing heart. Recently, I left the healthcare system and made a decision to take a leap of faith in changing careers. My ultimate purpose in life is to make a positive impact in the lives of others through the power of discipleship through music.

As a mother, I find immense joy in nurturing and guiding my children, instilling in them the values of compassion, resilience, health, and faith. My role as a daughter has taught me the importance of honoring and cherishing my family, and I strive to be a source of love, support, and encouragement for them.

My life is a testimony to others of how good my God is. It is through Him that I find strength, guidance, and unwavering love. I am grateful for the blessings and challenges that have shaped me into the woman I am today, and I am committed to using my story to inspire and encourage others on their own journeys to find peace in his presence like I have.

With every act of discipleship I engage in, my aim is to leave a lasting impact, to share the transformative power of faith, and to be a living testament to the goodness of God!
