The Story Behind On The Lord's Side

I wrote this song about friendships I have had with females down through the years.  Some of them were girls my age and others have been grown women.  But they all have shared the same traits: mean spiritedness, jealousy, hatred, backstabbing, and selfishness just to name a few.  Now, these characteristics did not come forth all at once, nor did they all come from the same female. As I got to know each one of them, I began to notice subtle comments that were highly unfavorable.  In the beginning, the comments were about other people.  Gradually, I began to hear them make snide remarks about me----to my face.  My mom has quoted the saying, "A dog that will take a bone will bring one." This means, when someone is constantly bringing you information about others, do not think for one second they are not taking information about you to others.  

Furthermore, I have heard the saying, "If they do it with you, they'll do it to you."  If a person talks badly about others, most of the time, they are talking badly about you.  I love what the late Dr. Maya Angelou said.  "When people show you who they are, believe them."

I have grown weary of being around females like this.  They were saying they loved God, but their actions were glorifying the devil. I will not tolerate girls or grown women who mistreat others, and who involve themselves in the affairs of others.  

Now I am to the point where I pay close attention to everything that comes from a "potential" female friend's mouth.  When I hear something disparaging come from their mouths, I do not entertain the thought of fellowship with them.  Life is too short to hang out with a phony Christian. I am living for the Lord the best I know how, and I need people in my life who are doing the same.  If they do not fit the criteria I live by, then there is no way I can socialize with them.  I have to maintain my peace with God.

On The Lord's Side - Song Lyrics

Are you on the Lord's side

I wanna know

If you're on the Lord's side

Then let it show

Are you on the Lord's side

What's the deal

If you're on the Lord's side

Then keep it real

 

You tell me that God has been good to you

How you trust Him every day

But I never ever hear you say that you are saved

You say that you are on the Lord's side

But everywhere you go

You want to start a fight

I wanna know are you

Living a lie

 

Are you on the Lord's side

I wanna know

If you're on the Lord's side

Then let it show

Are you on the Lord's side

What's the deal

If you're on the Lord's side

Then keep it real

 

I heard you say that you're a blessing to other people

But when I hear you talking to them all I hear is evil

You say that you are on the Lord's side

And you testify that He's your guide

But what I really wanna know if you have Him on the inside

 

Are you on the Lord's side

I wanna know

If you're on the Lord's side

Then let it show

Are you on the Lord's side

What's the deal

If you're on the Lord's side

Then keep it real

 

All you want to do is argue

And tell everybody what to do

What kind of person are you

You are not on the Lord's side

You need to open your eyes

And receive Jesus Christ

Then you'll be on the Lord's side
