Verse of the Day – 1 Kings 2:3-4

1 Kings 2:3-4

1 Kings 2:3-4

It’s been an up and down sort of week, in some moments I feel low and other I feel myself, some things have gone well and other things just won’t fall into place.  But through it all, the highs and lows, I have held on to the Lord, I have tried to keep His commandments, although at times I know I have failed in the low moments.

I actually feel like I am in a slightly better place than I was last week, in being in honest about how I feel, I have actually been able to deal with it better.  There is still a long way to go and a few battles to be fought over the next month or so, but I am putting up a fight with the Lord at my side.

If I keep doing that, keep fighting, keep praising and keep praying, I believe the new year will bring something new, something great.

THE ANTHEM by JESUS CULTURE & JAKE HAMILTON
I can hear the footsteps of my King
I can hear His heartbeat beckoning
In my darkness He has set me free
And now I hear the Spirit calling me

Wake up child
It’s your time to shine
You were born for such a time as this

I can hear a holy rumbling
I’ve begun to preach another King
Loosing chains and breaking down the walls
I want to hear the Father when He calls

This is the anthem of our generation
Here we are God, shake our nation
All we need is Your love
You captivate me

I am royalty
I have destiny
I have been set free
I’m gonna shape history

If I Am Defeated – Revelation 20:4

If I Am Defeated – Revelation 20:4

If I am defeated
I will still praise Your name
If I am to die
My last word will be Your name
For to me You are life
Without You I am death
For it was You that defeated the grave
Whatever I face still to come in this world
Upon my lips will forever be Your name
And I will fight the fight
With Your love as my shield
And I fall I will still praise Your name
For when You return to the world
On that day still to come
I pray I will rise again

Fire Within The Night – Nehemiah 9:19

Fire Within The Night – Nehemiah 9:19

In darker times
You never abandoned me
I saw the fire within the night
Like a column of light
Rising up to the heavens
I followed it into the morning light
And throughout the day
Which once felt like night
You were there once more to lead
Until I was free from the pull of the night
And released to live forever free

Nehemiah 9:19

To The Battle – Numbers 14:8-9

To The Battle – Numbers 14:8-9

Is there a place where I should be
A place You’re trying to lead me
To get there will there be battles?
For now I am afraid to fight
Do they guard the home You have for me?
To keep me from Your promise
And how will I break through their sentry?
To take the promise You have for me
Lord, lead me into this battle
Be my shield, my armour, my sword
With their scorn they won’t defeat me
If I have Your words to return
So lead me Lord and protect me
Be at my side as I fight through their lines
Until I reach the promise You have for me
And dwell in these blessed lands

Numbers 14:8-9

Numbers 14:8-9

Missed Your Voice – Psalm 71:17

Missed Your Voice – Psalm 71:17

In my youth
You spoke to me
Still I missed Your voice
You tried to lead me
Teach me Your ways
But I got lost in this world
Still when the time came
You were still there
Forever at my side
And then I heard Your voice
And found Your ways
Following You until I was home
And from that day
I praise Your name
For the great deeds
You have done in me

Psalm 71:17

Verse of the Day – 1 Thessalonians 5:4

1 Thessalonians 5:4

1 Thessalonians 5:4

I guess there will be times where we feel like we are slipping back into the darkness where we once found ourselves.  This has been true for me so many times, but only by clinging to the Light He brings have I been able to put the darkness behind me.

STRONG ENOUGH TO SAVE by TENTH AVENUE NORTH
You fought
But you were just too weak
So you lost
All the things you try to keep
Now you’re on your knees, you’re on your knees

But wait,
Everything can change,
In a moments time you don’t have to be afraid,
Cause fear is just a lie
open up your eyes

And he’ll break
Open the skies to save
Those who cry out his name
The One the wind and waves obey
Is strong enough to save you

Look
Now is not too late
Lift up your head
Let the rain fall on your face
You’re not far from grace
You’re not too far from grace

And he’ll break
Open the skies to save
Those who cry out his name
The One the wind and waves obey
Is strong enough to save you

And he’ll break
open the skies to save
those who cry out his name
the One the wind and waves obey
is strong enough to save you

I know the weight of this world can take you down like gravity
And I know the current of yourself can take you out
Out to sea
But hold on, hold on

And he’ll break
Open the skies to save
Those who cry out his name
The One the wind and waves obey
Is strong enough to save you
 

Season Of Rain – Psalm 42:1-2

Season Of Rain – Psalm 42:1-2

The season is cold
Winter so near
The rains fall outside
Still the feeling’s so barren
Empty and dry
My soul it cries out
To taste the living water
Only the Son can bring
Where can I turn?
Of, where can I find?
All that I need
To revive who I am
Let His rain fall
To refresh this soul
So these dry lands disappear
And I thrive in rain

Psalm 42:1-2
