Let My Life Overflow EPK
About the song
When describing the song, every day is a new day. How we approach it can determine the events of the day. With Christ in our lives, we have an advantage over the lost. However, we can find ourselves forgetting the wonders that God provides every day. In fact, it is a precious gift. It is a gift of freedom and grace. As we get filled with the Spirit of God out lives will overflow. Being filled to overflowing will spill out and effect the world around us.
With lyrics like “Every breath that I take brings a song of praise” it’s clear that John Pape is serious about the importance of giving honor and praise to God
Every step I take - I walk with God I place my life right in Your hands Oh how precious are Your thought I can't even count As God fills me with love so grand Pre-Chorus All I have In my life It's a precious gift from my God Chorus Let my life overflow With thankfulness Thankfulness for Your love Verse 2 Every sin I've sinned You freed my soul I offer thanks for lasting grace Every breath that I take brings a song of praise You made me pure now there's no trace Pre-Chorus 2 Here I stand In God's truth It gives me strength to carry on Chorus Let my life overflow With thankfulness Thankfulness for Your love Let my life overflow With thankfulness Thankfulness for Your love Tag Let it overflow Let it overflow Let it overflow Let it overflow Let it overflow

John Pape Bio
John Pape is a independent, self managed Christian songwriter who creates worship and praise music for seekers and believers in the church.
John states his mission “My music ministry is to create songs that will encourage a closer relationship to Jesus. The songs are crafted to help Christians though their daily walk. The songs provide a positive soundtrack for people’s lives.”
John’s songwriting drive is to honor God though words and music. His experience has grown over several years of honing the art of songwriting.
Born and raised in California his musical journey began as a young boy. His first instrument was the violin and her participated in the school glee club. As a teenager he got his first guitar. After a few lessons, he basically self-taught himself with a veracious appetite to learn the guitar.
John was going through a spiritual journey which eventually led him to a small store front church where he heard the gospel and by faith believed in the saving grace of Jesus.
At the time of conversion life had to change. It no longer seemed appropriate to live the rock n roll lifestyle. So, for a season the guitar was set down. After a period of time while reading the bible, he read the parable of the talents. Convicted, that he was not using his God given talent of music he prayed. Then leaving his home to take a meditative walk he passed by a piece of paper on the sidewalk. I voice spoke and said to pick up the paper. Turning around he picked it up and it was a song sheet. Not just any song sheet but a Christian song. Realizing that was confirmation he reached out that week to find a Christian band to join. Within a week he was in a Christian Rock band that wrote original music. This band lasted a few years, but the passion to write songs continued. Some early solo releases included “Tunes for Him” and “Almighty Reigns”
Some of John’s musical influences that help shape his songwriting include Chris Tomlin, Benton Brown, Matt Redman. In addition to these influences, John’s sound is shaped by Maranatha Music, Passion, Vineyard Worship Together and Jesus Culture.
John is also author of the book “Building a House of Worship”. The book was written as a guide to Christian church worship leaders to better minister to the people they serve as they use their gift of music.
Currently John is working on a project to release several new Praise and Worship songs that were written to build and encourage Christians in their daily walk.
“See, God has come to save me.Isiah 12:2
I will trust in him and not be afraid.
The LORD GOD is my strength and my song;
he has given me victory.”
My life is in your hands. Save me from my enemies and from those who are chasing me.
To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
The one who says he resides in God ought himself to walk just as Jesus walked.
1 John 2:6
Thus says God the Lord,
Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
Who gives breath to the people on it
And spirit to those who walk in it,
..rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
