My Best Friend, Jesus


Shattered dreams.

Focused memories.

Shattered, broken, and restored

All through the lens of the cross.

Who am I that I should harbor memories and shattered dreams?

I am just as guilty as those who wronged me.

As I look through the lens of the cross,

Where my best friend took HIS final breath;

Spoke these words, “It is finished!”

I am suddenly become undone.

My own heart became pierced with the realization,

“My sinfulness crowned HIM with thorns, which dug deep into His head.

My sinfulness beat HIM till He bled.

My sinfulness nailed HIM there to the cross.

My sinfulness pierced His side.

For this reason and this reason alone,

Did HIS Father send send His powerful Spirit to come upon Mary

And she would bear a Son and call HIM Jesus!

With Christmas I remember His birth.

With Communion I remember His death.

With Easter I remember His resurrection and ascension.

“For God, so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. ” John 3:16

Jesus Is With Me


Here it is four o’clock in the morning and I have had little sleep. My mind has gotten away from me a bit and I must refocus my thoughts on Jesus and rely on HIM for my peace and well-being. I have chosen not to digress anymore on what has been nagging me this past night instead I want to dwell and think on some scriptures.

Colossians 3:1-3 NIV

Since then, you have been with raised with Christ, set your minds on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above and not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

Highlights from Psalm 139:1-4,7-8, 11-12, 17-18

O LORD, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You searched out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold you know it all together.

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I feel from your presence?

If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.

How precious to me are your thoughts O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them they are more than the sand. I awake, I am still with you!

Philippians 4:8,9

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is commendable, if there is anything excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on these things.

Dear Jesus,

Thank you that you are always with me and each person that has called you LORD. Thank you that what has caused me to be wide awake is now gone like a vapor in the wind it is no longer on my mind. Thank you for your amazing love and grace that is new every morning.

Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me!

Bless His holy Name!

May His praise and His presence give me rest this day!

Amen!

 

 

 

 

Let Your Song Arise


Let your song arise.

Let your song arise.

Out of the fountain waters

Flowing deep, deep within the soul

Let your song arise

Let it rise with the morning sun

Let your heart boast

With all the things that the Lord has done

Let your song arise

Let your song arise

For even in the painful fiery  storm

The Lord is in the midst of it

Though you may never know the “why”

Then know this: whatever the circumstances of your storm.

IT IS FOR YOUR GOOD AND HIS GLORY.

WE ARE NOT TO BE INDEPENDENT BUT TO BE DEPENDANT ON THE LORD FOR EVERYTHING.

SO, LET YOUR SONG ARISE

FOR THE OLD IS GONE AND THE NEW HAS COME.

Thanksgiving

Sweetly broken

The body and the blood

In remembrance of the King

No greater gift exists

Than His atoning sacrifice

Praise and glory

To the King of Kings

Your body was beaten

Your blood was poured out

For the love You had for humanity

Yet there is Your great love

We celebrate, the tiny baby born in Bethlehem

Jesus You were called

You lived

You died

You were raised to life

Where You sit enthroned

Til this day when You return

To carry me home

I will praise You

Both now and evermore

Psalm 95:6-7 Amplified

Oh, come let us worship and bow down,

Let us kneel before the Lord our maker.

For He is our God and the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.

Psalm 96:6, 9

Honor and majesty are before Him;

Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of  holiness; tremble before Him and reverently fear Him, all the Earth.

Stop for a minute and consider these verses. What does it mean for you personally to worship the Lord, Who Created you? Strength and beauty are in sanctuary or dwelling place, since the Lord sent the Holy Spirit and His dwelling place is within us then We have His strength and beauty within us. The only way we stand in the beauty of holiness is accept His free gift of life as we surrender our lives to Him on a daily basis. We must also realize that the Lord is the God of justice for everyone is deserving of eternal judgement however THE LORD JESUS Christ loved His creation, mankind, so much that died for them. Let Him be the One you come to today and every day.

Be blessed as you go through the rest of your day!

Trust Me


You see me through the darkest night.

You see me through the brokenness.

A heart that was trampled and torn apart; your eyes saw it all Lord.

You speak words of life to very soul.

My heart knows to trust and glorify You.

I will share what You’ve said to me this night for I believe it speaks into many hearts.

Let the tears flow, it’s okay.

You are precious to Me.

He doesn’t know Who I am, I am very grieved by the things he has done in his life and not just to you My daughter. I know your heart and your desires ; even the ones you can’t put into words. Let it go and give it to me I can handle it. I really can.

Whatever is bringing you to tears whether it’s a failed marriage, a person on drugs, lost loved ones. Know that the Lord Almighty is grieved by all of it and He saw it all. Take it all to Him and He will see you through. Precious are You Beloved of the Lord!

proverbs 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord, Lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.

Be blessed!
