Mon chéri Père, je t’aime!!! I am forever blessed to know that I am Yours, You are mine, and we are one.  Thank You for continuing to rid me of myself and with Your supernatural help, I pray Your church would be salt and light in this world.  I am SO very glad You desire to form us in Your likeness from the filthiness that surrounds us.  What I picture are children with murky mud all over them.  You took the kids home from the cold and You cleaned them up—dressing them (us) with finest of clothes and fattest of meals plus a future of unending inheritance! You not only adopted and made us Your children, You redeemed and washed us white as snow—making us Your very own so much so that we pray when people see us, they would see You—leaving Your fragrance behind.  You are my confidence and your love is all I need and I know I cannot breathe without You.  When I think of You, I stand in awe speechless.   

I desire to show my love…to be more like You and to know You deeper.  Thank You for Your amazing grace…I pray for a child-like faith.  I pray to continue to enjoy You and Your creation.  May I love and receive love as You would.  I pray to continue to enjoy our everlasting divine romance.  Sometimes I cannot help but to sing out loud and dance to You for Your glory! I am absolutely nothing without You and Jesus, I love…You continue to captivate me with Your love.  Thank You for helping me to surrender my hopes, dreams, life, and everything in exchange for the promises You have made, which I know is the very best!! I know You will never fail me (us), thus I trust You no matter what I go through—those circumstances only serve to draw me (us) closer to You and glorify Your name! Holy Spirit, please rain down on us—be magnified, oh LORD!!

James 1

[21] Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

[22] But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

[23] For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

[24] for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

[25] But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

[26] If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceived his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

[27] Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this:  to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Do you believe God is Sovereign? I was just listening to When I Cried by Elva Frye only to find God concluding the 6th chapter below with a confirmation I continue to hold very dear and close to my heart.  I pray we all know that He is our Daddy for when we cry, He cries with us.  He is near and close to us, His beloveds, and I can affirms yearns for the day of reunion—the marriage supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:9)!  

 

1 Corinthians 6

[1] We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.

[2] For He says:  “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”  Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

[3] We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed.

[4] But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God:  in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses,

[5] in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings;

[6] by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,

[7] by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

[8] by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true;

[9] as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed;

[10] as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

[11] O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open.

[12] You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.

[13] Now in return for the same (I speak as to children), you also be open.

[14] Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.  For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

[15] And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?

[16] And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.  As God has said:  “I will dwell in them And walk among them.  I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”

[17] Therefore “Come our from among them And be separate, says the Lord.  Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”

[18] “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”

 

 

 

Dear God, I stand in awe of You and wait on You for the rest of the life You have given me even after hearing about the 22 Christian Missionary families scheduled to be executed in Afghanistan; You truly have the final say, LORD.  I continue to pray things that break Your heart would break mine!

 

Matthew 24:14

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

 

Go – Mercy Me

 

My life has been instilled
By a hope that never moves
And yet it moves me still
So I’m crying out to You
Use me
So I can take Your fame and glory
For all to see
No matter where Your hand may lead me

[CHORUS]
I will go
I will go
To make You known
I will go

I can’t keep You to myself
My heart is just too small
There’s so many left to tell
That You came for one and all
Use me
So I can take Your fame and Glory
For all to see
No matter where Your hand may lead me

[REPEAT CHORUS]

For a dying world in need
For the hungry and the weak
For the sinner scared to speak
I will go

[REPEAT CHORUS]

LALALALALALALALALA…

2 Timothy 3

[14] But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,

[15] and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

[16] All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

[17] that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

 

I pray for the things that break Your heart to break mine, Daddy.  As Mark Cahill alluded, we are one heartbeat away from eternity.  Where are you heading? Lord, I pray your intercession because as You have instructed us, broad is the way that leads to destruction and narrow is the way that leads to everlasting life.  I want You and need You—I pray we will all continue in the things which we have learned.  So, help us Lord because sin/compromise is destructive and it is not a joke! I cry out to You broken, on my knees & looking at the cross for You, my Savior, showed Your love.  If You can call me out of death into life, You are more than able to do the same to any willing heart.  Thank You Jesus for reconciling everything at the cross for now I am lost in love with You.

 

Lyrics by The House:

 

You Found Me

 

Can You hear me

Can You find me

Can You break through these chains

That define me

 

Can You see me

Can You touch me

Can You break through these chains

That define me

 

Hold me closer and don’t let me go alone

Hold me closer and don’t let me go alone

 

Can You reach me

Can You hold me

Can you break through these chains

That defines me

 

You have found me

Heard my cry

 

Rest In You

 

I come to You and I surrender

Lord, make my will Your own

I find Your grace in my desperation

Restoring faith in me

Where doubt has wounded deep

 

Jesus, You are beautiful

Jesus, You are true

Marvelous and wonderful

I will rest in You

 

I stand in awe of Your endless mercy

My heart You have restored

I fear my past, I’m underserving

Your love’s reminding me

The price You paid for me

 

As Vineyard Music (Over and Over Again) is singing, “…all I can say is I love you—all I can say is I need you—all I can say is I thank You Lord for all that You’ve done in my life…” You are love and do not desire for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.  I pray anyone that reads this would take You seriously by denying themselves, taking up the cross, and following You, Jesus because no one is promised the next breath.  I know I am definitely Your kid under construction and thankful for each passing day is a day closer to You all by the grace of God!

 

2 Corinthians 4

[17] For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

[18] while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

 

Your throne of grace – By the Tree

 

Oh, my Lord
You are so kind
Oh, my Lord
You are so kind

Morning to morning
Day to day
You reveal Your righteous ways

It’s Your kindness that leads to repentance
It’s your blood that brings forgiveness
It’s your mercy that leads me here
To your throne of grace
Your throne of grace

Oh, my Lord
You are so kind
Oh, my Lord
You are so kind

Morning to morning
Day to day
You reveal Your righteous ways

In Your kindness I find repentance
In Your blood I find forgiveness
In Your mercy I find myself at Your throne of grace
Your throne of grace

The below lyrics are by Kathryn Scott.  Simple lyrics, yet unquestionably veracious and in reverence to my King! I thank God for remaining faithful (2 Timothy 2:13) come what may! This is my prayer to my Love, Jesus Christ (Psalm 61:1-2)!

 

I Belong

 

Verse 1
Not angels, nor demons, no power on earth or heaven
Not distance, nor danger, no trouble now or ever

 

Pre Chorus
Nothing can take me from your great love
Forever this truth remains

Chorus
I belong, I belong to you X2

Verse 2
Not hardship, nor hunger, no pain or depth of sorrow
Not weakness, nor failure, no broken dream or promise

 

Search Me Know Me

 

Search me know me
Try me and see
Every worthless affection hidden in me
All I’m asking for is that You’d cleanse me Lord

 

Create in me a heart that’s clean
Conquer the power of secret shame
Come wash away the guilty stain of all my sin

Clothe me in robes of righteousness
Cover my nakedness with grace
All of my life before You now I humbly bring

 

 

These three songs (Hillsong United) amongst others are very precious to me.  Abba Father, I really pray, have thine own way with me for this life I live is no longer mine but Yours (Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.)!

 

All for Love

 

All for love a Father gave
For only love could make a way
All for love the heavens cried
For love was crucified

Oh how many times have I broken Your heart
But still You forgive
If only I ask
And how many times have You heard me pray
Draw near to me

Everything I need is You
My beginning, my forever
Everything I need is You

Let me sing all for love
I will join the angel song
Ever holy is the Lord
King of Glory
King of all

Oh how many times have I broken Your heart
But still You forgive
If only I ask
And how many times have You heard me pray
Draw near to me

Everything I need is You
My beginning, my forever
Everything I need is You (x2)

All for a love a Saviour prayed
Abba Father have Your way
Though they know not what they do
Let the Cross draw man to You

Everything I need is You
My beginning, my forever
Everything I need is You (x2)

 

Deeply in Love

 

In my life You`ve heard me say
I love you
How do I show you it`s true
hear my heart, it longs for more of you
I`ve fallen deeply in love with you

You have stolen my heart
I`m captivated by you
Never will you and I part
I`ve fallen deeply in love with you

You and I, together forever
Nothing can, stand in the way
My love for you, grows stronger
each new day
I`ve fallen deeply in love with you

You have stolen my heart
I`m captivated by you
Never will you and I part
I`ve fallen deeply in love with you

You have stolen my heart
I`m captivated by you
Never will you and I part
I`ve fallen deeply in love with you

 

‘Til I See You

 

The greatest love that anyone could ever know
That overcame the cross and grave to find my soul
And ’til I see You face to face and grace amazing takes me home
I’ll trust in You

With all I am I’ll live to see Your kingdom come
And in my heart I pray You’d let Your will be done
And ’til I see You face to face and grace amazing takes me home
I’ll trust in You

I will live to love You
I will live to bring You praise
I will live a child in awe of You

You are the voice that calls the universe to be
You are the whisper in my heart that speaks to me
And ’til I see You face to face and grace amazing takes me home
I’ll trust in you

You alone are God of all
You alone are worthy Lord
And with all I am my soul will bless Your name

With each passing moments, I realize Jesus Christ is all I want, all I need and I want to know Him more and more! He is sovereign and I continue to see and taste that He is good—It amazes me for I cannot help but to fall more in love with You, Love, and I cannot take my eyes off You and nothing else compares to You for You are my utmost, the One I desire to please with every breath so help me God!! Look to Him for He never fails~

Psalm 52

[8] But I am like a green olive tree

             In the house of God;

       I trust in the mercy of God forever

             And ever.

[9] I will praise You forever,

      Because You have done it;

      And in the presence of Your saints

      I will wait on Your name, for it is

             Good.

 

<Lifehouse – Everything>

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel You
I need to hear You
You are the light
That’s leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose…You’re everything.

How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and You give me rest.
You hold me in Your hands, You won’t let me fall.
You steal my heart, and You take my breath away.
Would You take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause You’re all I want, You’re all I need
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want, You’re all I need
You’re everything, everything.
You’re all I want, You’re all I need.
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want, You’re all I need, You’re everything, everything.

And how can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

<background>How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

Would You tell me how could it be any better than this?

 

<Michael Neale – More and More>

To know You as my Father

To know You as my King

To know You in Your

Resurrection power and suffering

 

To know You as my Teacher

To know You as my Light

To know You as the Lamp

Unto my feet through the night

 

Oh I want to know You

Deeper than before

Oh I want to know You

More and more

 

To know You as my Healer

To know You as my Love

To know You as my Advocate

To Heaven’s throne above

 

To know You as my Savior

To know You as my Lord

To know You as the coming King

Who reigns forevermore

 

To know You as Forgiver

To know You as my Friend

To know You as my Comforter

When all is crashing in

Love Never Fails (1 Corinthians 13:8)—Jesus never fails! May He go with you this day and always as you continue to wait on Him while walking with Him blamelessly for He is the God Almighty (Genesis 17:1-2) and is committed to seeing you through unto eternity!!

 

Go With Me – Kathy Gipson

 

Verse 1

Whatever’s left of my life only You know my days

Where I sit and I stand how I live how I pray

Giving all that I am it is humbling to know

Small or great You are King, guide my feet as I go

 

Chorus

Go with me, before me, behind me my Lord

Make my path one that You approve of

Speak Your will, point the way

Give me words I should say

Make me worthy to serve You

Worthy to Love Go with Me my Lord

 

Verse 2

Whoever I must become In Your eyes I will be

All that You have desired in Your will I am free

Transformed by Your hand it is humbling to know

Small or great You are King, guide my feet as I go

Life is painful

However, God makes it bearable.

Choosing to stand for

Christ means dying to

Self, counting the cost,

And loyally following

Jesus all the way not

Half-heartedly.

 

I was once lost in darkness, bondage,

Or whatever you may call it…

Maybe even wilderness.

Even then, my faithful

Father never failed to

Intercede on my

Behalf until I finally

Took that step of

Faith through the open

Door He long provided.

 

I will also purport that

His timing and manner

Are always perfect.

You see, even though

It hurts to forsake all

That I had once held

Dear and it remains

Painful being that

I am human, I know

My God will never

Fail me. 

 

I know He

Will surely complete

All that He has started

And He has assured me

All wounds would be

Healed (Jer. 30:17)–so, I pray

To continue to relinquish

Myself and all involved

At the altar, one by one,

Knowing He will meet me

There and do the very

Best with it all!

 

At the end of the day,

I am reminded He is

The sole reason I live…

Because when all else

Ran, Doubted and Condemned,

He welcomed me

To rest in His embrace,

Washed me white as snow,

And assured me no

One could ever

Snatch me away from

The palms of His

Hands because He is aware

Of my frailty without

Him—for that,

I am forever grateful

To my Father’s faithfulness

As I continue to fix

My gaze on Him

And rest at the foot

Of the cross

With His supernatural help.

 

Search me and know me (Ps.139)…

Help me for I choose

To walk the narrow way

Crucify my flesh, LORD

And fill me with Your

Holy Spirit because

I desire to be Your

Reflection!
