Verse of the Day – John 6:19-20

John 6:19-20

John 6:19-20

When I first met Jesus five years ago, I was afraid too, I guess I was lost and alone, but He brought me peace, He called me out from where I was, to have faith and walk to Him.  At times I have let me eyes fall from His face and I have fell below the waves, but each time He rescues me, His love never fails.

OCEANS (WHERE FEET MAY FAIL) by HILLSONG UNITED
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Oh, Jesus, you’re my God!

I will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

 

Patiently – Proverbs 14:29

Patiently – Proverbs 14:29

The patient One
Our Christ of kindness
He waited so patiently
For me
Still I turned my face
Turning away from myself
Surrounded by my anger
Wrapped up in my hurt
But He never gave up
The patient One
He waited so patiently
For me
Until I turned to see His face
And my soul rose again
Now I pray I can be like Him
To have patience and understanding
To wait patiently for the time to come
When I will see the promise
Of this new life
Instead of the folly of a soul once so lost

Proverbs 14:29

Psalm 33:18

Psalm 33:18

After another day where craziness has prevailed, after another senseless terror attack, it is in Him we need to place our hope, our hope that the lost of this world will find His unfailing love.

EARTH LIKE HEAVEN by JONATHON DAVID & MELISSA HELSER
The dust that we were made of
Is calling us to free them
The earth that we were pulled from
Is crying, “liberate us!”

The dust that we were made of
Is calling us to free them
The earth that we were pulled from
Is crying, “liberate us!”

We won’t be satisfied
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven
We won’t be satisfied
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven

Like the waters cover the sea
Let the earth be filled with Your glory
‘Till the prayers You prayed become reality
And the earth looks just like heaven

We won’t be satisfied
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven
And the prayers You prayed become reality
And the earth looks just like heaven

Wake up you sons and daughters
You were made for so much more
Wake up you sons and daughters
Start singing, creation’s waiting

Your kingdom come, Your will be done
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven
Your kingdom come, Your will be done
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven

Wake up you sons and daughters
You were made for so much more
Wake up you sons and daughters
Start singing, creation’s waiting

She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking us
She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking us
She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking us

She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking, waking, waking, oh!

Like the waters cover the sea
Let the earth be filled with Your glory
‘Till the prayers You prayed become reality
And the earth looks just like heaven

 

Love Will Triumph – Proverbs 3:3-4

Love Will Triumph – Proverbs 3:3-4

Where a soul falls
Drifting to darkness
There is a way
Love will triumph
If we hold to the Lord
Grace and mercy forgive all
Love conquered from the cross
Now hold that love with faithfulness
Let it be etched upon the walls of your heart
Love will triumph over all
And you will feel the favour of the Lord

Proverbs 3:3-4

Verse of the Day – Psalm 116:1-2

Psalm 116:1-2

Psalm 116:1-2

To wake the morning after your first prayer, knowing that God has answered your prayer for peace, is a feeling I will never forget, the feeling was like nothing I had ever felt before.

COME AS YOU ARE by POCKET FULL OF ROCKS
He’s not mad at you,
And He’s not disappointed.
His grace is greater still
Than all of your wrong choices.

He is full of mercy
And He’s ever kind.
Hear His invitation,
His arms are open wide.

You can come as you are with all your broken pieces,
And all your shameful scars.
The pain you hold in your heart, bring it all to Jesus.
You can come as you are.

Louder than the voice
That whispers “you’re unworthy”,
Hear the sound of love
That tells a different story.

Shattering your darkness
And pushing through the lies,
How tenderly He calls you,
His arms are open wide.

You can come as you are with all your broken pieces,
All your shameful scars.
The pain you hold in your heart, bring it all to Jesus.
You can come as you are.

You can come as you are.

You can come as you with all your broken pieces,
All your shameful scars.
The pain you hold in your heart, bring it all to Jesus.
You can come as you are.

 

Mercy – James 2:13

Mercy – James 2:13

Who are we to judge
When ours scars reflect
The glory of the cross
Though we are torn and broken
We were made new
By the mercy of the cross
We are clothed by mercy
Yet no judgement of the Lord
So shown no judgement in return
Give back them the mercy we receive
For mercy will triumph
When judgement falls

James 2:13

James 2:13

Verse of the Day – Psalm 34:17-18

Psalm 34:17-18

Psalm 34:17-18

I am thankful that my cries were heard, maybe I didn’t cry out directly to God, but He came to rescue me regardless.  Before I knew who He was, before I prayed to Him, His voice told me to listen to certain song, when I heard it’s lyrics I broke down, it was as though the song was written about me, but it is certain that the healing had definitely begun.

I still cry when I hear this song, but it’s a tear of joy, of thanks for being saved.

HEALING BEGINS by TENTH AVENUE NORTH
So you thought you had to keep this up
All the work that you do
So we think that you’re good
And you can’t believe it’s not enough
All the walls you built up
Are just glass on the outside

So let ’em fall down
There’s freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We’re here now

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Afraid to let your secrets out
Everything that you hide
Can come crashing through the door now
But too scared to face all your fear
So you hide but you find
That the shame won’t disappear

So let it fall down
There’s freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We’re here now
We’re here now, oh

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Sparks will fly as grace collides
With the dark inside of us
So please don’t fight
This coming light
Let this blood come cover us
His blood can cover us

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark
