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.

A Broken Heart


A tender heart

A spoken word

All is at a loss

When there is a broken spirit

Yet there is hope

As long as you remain in the vine

While this vine supports you all it can

There is only one who knows you

I mean really knows you from the inside out

For He is tender -hearted

Yet filled with justice

The Lord is the one I speak of

Come to Him like I’ve done this year

Rest and call to Him for healing

He will restore you with a fullness of joy

In due time

In the meantime saturate yourself in the word.

May The Lord bless you today!

Love and Grace


Streams of love and grace

From the Lord’s hands

Are flowing over me

As I marvel at His redeeming power

How He continues to mold and make me

Into a vessel He can use

To give and display His glory

He is the Master Craftsman

Who leaves nothing unfinished

He is always working in my life

Though not everything is pleasant

But everything is redeemable

As His plan unfolds day by day

The morning light

Brings a new day to give You praise

How great is my God

How great is my God

He turns brokenness into beauty

As He pours out His love on Me

Father’s love


The Father’s love

Overwhelms me at times

Sometimes tears of joy

Well up and trickle down my face

When I think of all

The circumstances The Lord

Has brought me through

Praise The Lord

For His grace is enough

To see me through all life’s difficulties

There is always joy

When I ponder the works of GOD

So let His praise well up

within you this day!

 

Sovereign Lord


Sovereign Lord

I enter into Your presence

With praise falling from my lips

Arise arise

Sovereign Lord

Scatter the plans of the enemy

Awaken awaken

The hearts of the nations

To proclaim Your Kingdom come

Your will be done

For great are You Lord

Great and marvelous are Your ways

Your kingdom is everlasting

Of Your power

There is no end

Sing aloud

All the peoples of the earth

Proclaim His majesty

To the ends of the earth

Rejoice in Jesus Christ

Who is the Way

Who is the truth

Who is the life

The only God who became a man

Who walked a sinless life

Was nailed to a cross

Becoming sin and bearing the shame

Was buried and then raised to life

Now seated at the right hand

Of Him who sits on the throne

Who Will return to judge the earth

And gather His own

Praise and glory be His forever Amen!
