Like tiny frightened sparrows, shivering in the winter cold, many live their lives on the barren branches of heartbreak, disappointment, and loneliness, lost in thoughts of shame, self-pity, guilt, or failure …
God’s purpose for our lives is to make us whole – which is the way He created us to be – and then to work through us for His glory as we surrender our lives to Him … in His presence is where we find healing from the pain of our past. Prayer draws us closer to God, where we can get a vision for our future and better understand our purpose. Unquote
The year is drawing to a close. We will be celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ when God became man and God was with us – Emmanuel. God is still with us. Praise Him forever more!
Come people! Come into the presence of the LORD! Come into His presence and experience the fullness of joy!
In two months time, it will be Christmas. Let’s prepare our hearts …
Behold! Jesus the Lamb of God!
He who resided in Heaven … willingly descended into our world. He breathed our air, felt our pain, knew our sorrows, and died for our sins. He didn’t come to frighten us, but to show us the way to warmth and safety.
Jesus be the centre (song)
Jesus, be the centre; Be my source, be my light, Jesus;
Jesus, be the centre; Be my hope, be my song, Jesus;
Be the fire in my heart; Be the wind in these sails;
Be the reason that I live; Jesus, Jesus;
Jesus, be my vision; Be my path, be my guide, Jesus;
Jesus, You are Lord! (my poem)
We wanna worship You, Father God;
We wanna serve You in one accord;
Come and light in our hearts a flame;
We wanna honor Your glorious Name;
Through tests and trials, we’re not alone;
We are Your children You call Your own;
Abba Father, Friend, Savior and King;
Praises to You alone, we want to sing;
Consecrate our hearts – we love You LORD;
Your Spirit’s in us, we proclaim You are God;
Fearless and unashamed, we worship You;
Died and revived in Christ, we praise You;
Washed by Your Blood - clothed as Your Bride;
Sitting in heaven with Christ - on Your right side;
Living in Christ, ‘self’ had died;
Led by Your Spirit, ‘flesh’ crucified;
Our voices lifted in one accord;
Spirits united there’s no discord;
Hallelujah! To the King we sing!
Glory to GOD! Our praises ring!
Dear Father God
Because of Your amazing GRACE, we are alive in Christ … for it is by grace we have been saved. Because of Your incomparable POWER … we are raised up with Christ, and seated in Christ in the heavenly realms.
Indeed, we are Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus - to do good works, which You have prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
Help us to do well; Help us to finish well; Amen!
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I declare that - IN CHRIST, we stand united in spirit and in truth, and BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, we are rising up to become a HOLY TEMPLE for You, O Sovereign LORD.
