Where there is beauty from within
There is a soul who is sold out to Christ
Where there is joy from within
There is the strength of the Lord
Where there is hope from within
There is a soul who is anchored in Christ alone
Where there is love from within
There is a soul who abides in Christ
He alone is the author of love for God is love.
My soul longs for Heaven
My soul longs to see Jesus face-to-face
To feel the warmth of His embrace
To dance by the crystal sea
In front of the all encompassing King
The LORD, the lover of my soul
As He looks down from His throne
Is grieved by all wickedness
He sees in the earth today
As much as I long for HIM
I cannot even begin to grasp the thought
“Jesus is grieved by all the wickedness He sees
And His longing to see the entire world
The way that His Father intended to be from the very beginning.”
I cannot even fathom the depth of His love and plan for me
Yet I know HIS Goodness and Faithfulness lasts an eternity
How great is My God! How loving is My God!
How compassionate is HE who did not spare His Son
But gave Him up for each of us so that we could forgiven
For each of our sins. Praise His holy name!
Steadfast in love and faithfulness
Is the graciousness of God
Full of mercy and gentleness
Oh, highly favored men and women of the Lord
Listen closely to His heart for you
Rise up and praise HIM
Thank HIM for the little things
Thank HIM for the breath to breathe
Thank HIM for a new day
Thank HIM for HIS compassion on you
Thank HIM for the adversity you face
For in it you will grow in HIM exponentially
As you press into HIM and die to self
Let HIS desires become your own
Be HIS hands and feet to this dying world
Smile, nod, or wave at a passer by
Give out of your love and obedience to HIM
Let HIM move through you this day.
You want to be real
You want to be genuine
In all that you do
‘Cause all you see around you
Are those who believe one way
And live another
I’m here to tell you
Stay true to the Author and perfector
Of the faith you hold so dear
‘Cause those who are around you
Are looking at all that you do
To see if what you believe
Is what You say and do
Don’t give up
Don’t give in to the pressures of society
To be like them
Go against the tide
For Your obedience to Christ is worth dying to self
The world will know that YOU are HIS
By Your act of obedience could turn
A village, a city, a nation and yes even the world
Back to The LORD through repentance
For true freedom is only found in Christ alone!
Dare to be different…
Dare to stand in midst of adversity…
Dare to stand and pray for your city…
Dare to stand and pray for your nation…
Dare to stand and pray for your world…
Dare to live for Jesus Christ…
Dare to stand on HIS word…
For the world needs to see the difference…
For the world needs to see and experience the Love of Jesus Christ…
For God is love and everything good that happens in this earth….
Happens because of God’s love being demonstrated through you…
Yes, through you…
So be genuine….
Let your life reflect your belief in Jesus Christ and His word…
Be obedient to His word…
And others will be drawn to Jesus because of your act of obedience…
And love for them…..
When they see you rejoicing and standing firm in your faith…
They too will want to know Jesus…
So, don’t shrink back during adversity and great stress…
Rather pursue God and HIS righteousness…
He will see you through…
Psalm 62:2 Amplified
He only is my Rock and my Salvation, my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be greatly moved.
My Lord is the Rock of stability in my life.
My Lord is the Rock I cling to.
My Lord is the Rock who anchors me in HIS safe harbor.
My Lord is my Salvation.
My Lord is my Redeemer who purchased me with His blood that was shed on the cross.
My Lord is my First line of Defense against all the evil and corrupt things in this world.
My Lord is my Fortress in the midst of battle.
My Lord is my Shelter from the storm.
Praise HIS HOLY NAME
Jesus My Prince of peace
In HIM I have the Victory
Hear my cry
Dear Lord above the heavens
Hear my cry
Release Your presence in this place
From the mountains to the sea
You are the God who encompasses me
You are the God who hears and sets the captives free
May Your presence flood this place
As I come and bow before you this day
Continue to fill my heart with praise
As everyday I am learning to surrender to Your Will
In all things, You are the One who deserves my praise!
