Verse of the Day – Acts 1:26

Acts 1:26

Acts 1:26

We don’t need to cast lots to be called a disciple of Christ, this we inherit when we call Him saviour.  Sometimes it’s a hard act to follow, those twelve set the bar so high.

When I feel down, it’s hard to feel like a disciple, but the good news is that Christ walks with me through these seasons and this I still spread, that whatever you go through, Christ will go through with you.

GLIMMER IN THE DUST by HILLSONG UNITED
I was lost in a moment, a glimmer in time
Like a child chasing shadows, my back to the light
I was lost in a fog till You caught my eye
Through the smoke and the mirrors, a glimmer of life

I know there’s a place I belong
Where I’ll see the fullness of love
A child face to face with my God
Lost in Your awesome wonder
While I wait, I will not be afraid
My faith will remain all the same
My hope in the things not yet seen
Found in the greatest of these

I found love in a moment, exploding in light
At the cross where the curtains, were ripped from my eyes
I found heaven in pieces, in glimmer and dust
Broken glass in reflection, till we shine like the sun

I know there’s a place I belong
Where I’ll see the fullness of love
A child face to face with my God
Lost in Your awesome wonder
While I wait, I will not be afraid
My faith will remain all the same
My hope in the things not yet seen
Found in the greatest of these

I know that You love me
I know that You love me
Your love never fails
Your love never fails

When all’s said and done
All that matters is love (I know that You love me)
So let love take over (I know that You love me)
Not just in part but in all that You are (Your love never fails)
Let Your love take over (Your love never fails)

NOT TODAY by HILLSONG UNITED
Trouble won’t throw me
Won’t break me
Won’t scare me
No more
Fear must have thought I was faithless
When it came for my heart

‘Cause I got a song that will never die
I know Your love is the reason why

I’ll sing the night into the morning
I’ll sing the fear into Your praise
I’ll sing my soul into Your presence
Whenever I say Your Name
Let the devil know not today

Tell me did the enemy panic
As You took up that cross
Tell me did the darkness cry mercy
As You rolled back that rock

‘Cause I know Your life is the life in mine
I know Your love is the reason why

I’ll sing the night into the morning
I’ll sing the fear into Your praise
I’ll sing my soul into Your presence
Whenever I say Your Name
Let the devil know not today
Whenever I say Your Name Jesus
Let the devil know not today
Not now not ever again

Your love stood down death
Crushed the devil’s head
Fear is just a liar
Running out of breath
The fight beneath Your feet
I’m standing on Jesus’ Name
So let the devil know not today
Let the devil know not today No no
Not now not ever again Jesus
Let the devil know not today

Kind and gracious words can make a difference to a persons day, sometimes we just need to hear something that lifts our soul.

TAKE HEART by HILLSONG UNITED
There is a light
It burns brighter than the sun
He steals the night
And casts no shadow
There is hope
Should oceans rise and mountains fall
He never fails

So take heart
Let His love lead us through the night
Hold on to hope
And take courage again

In death by love
The fallen world was overcome
He wears the scars of our freedom
In His Name
All our fears are swept away
He never fails

So take heart
Let His love lead us through the night
Hold on to hope
And take courage again

All our troubles
And all our tears
God our hope
He has overcome

All our failure
And all our fear
God our love
He has overcome

All our heartache
And all our pain
God our healer
He has overcome

All our burdens
And all our shame
God our freedom
He has overcome

All our troubles
And all our tears
God our hope
He has overcome

All our failures
And all our fear
God our love
He has overcome

God our justice
God our grace
God our freedom
He has overcome

God our refuge
God our strength
God is with us
He has overcome

Proverbs 22:4

Our pride holds us from the Lord, it is our humility that brings us closer.

CLOSER THAN YOU KNOW by HILLSONG UNITED
I tempered the storm
Though your faith was small
I prayed while you slept
And the night waged war
We stood by the fire
And we walked on sea
And we drank of the wine
That was made of Me

Don’t turn your eyes from Me
For my love won’t be undone
Don’t hide your face from Me
For my light has surely come
Surely come, surely come, oh

I carried that cross and I felt your pain
I took up your crown and I wore your shame
And death was a fire and its teeth were grim
But I left it behind along with all your sin

Don’t turn away from Me
For my love won’t be undone
Don’t hide your face from Me
For my light has surely come
Surely come, surely come

Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Lift up your voice and sing
Know that My love won’t let you go
And I won’t forsake you
Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Know I’ll never leave you
So lift up your voice and sing
Know that my love won’t let you go
And my light has surely come
Surely come, surely come
And I’m closer than you know
And I’m closer than you know

SO WILL I (100 BILLION X) by HILLSONG UNITED
God of creation
There at the start, before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark and fleshed out the wonder of light

And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapour of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship, so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star, a signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises, so will I

God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain, no syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science, follow the sound of Your voice

And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature, so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky, a canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You, so will I
So will I, so will I

If the stars were made to worship, so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence, so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness, so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high, so will I
And if the wind goes where You send it, so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence, so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times!

God of salvation
You chased down my heart through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world abandoned in darkness to die

And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You, so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender, so will I
I can see in Your heart, eight billion different ways
Every precious one, a child You died to save
If You gave Your life to love them, so will I

Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire?
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind

Psalm 19:7-8

Psalm 19:7-8

The ways of the Lord are just, without them I would not have been able to celebrate my Son’s 16th birthday today.  All though I have failed from time to time, He sets me right again, time after time.

SPLINTERS AND STONES by HILLSONG UNITED
Fate
Holds nothing on the providence I know
No longer bound to things of wood and stone
When all I had to offer was my worst
You saw my heavy heart and loved me first

Your beauty staring down my brokenness
You chose to throw Your heart into the mess
Compassion crashing down upon my debt You were there

All this time
Like a river running through my failure
You carried me all this time
Like the splinters buried in
Your shoulders You carry me now

Hallelujah
If ever now my heart cries hallelujah
If ever now in the wonder of Your grace
A thousand times a thousand years my soul
Will say

Grace
You saw the crushing weight my flesh deserved
You kneeled and wrote forgiveness in the dirt
And one by one the stones fell where they lay
As one by one my accusers walked away
With nothing left to throw they made a cross
And knowing only love could count the cost
You were there

All this time
Like a river running through my failure
You carried me all this time
Like the splinters buried in
Your shoulders Your love carried all my shame
Jesus how my soul will praise You
You carried me all this way
Like a diamond in the scars upon
Your crown You carry me now

Hallelujah
If ever now my heart cries hallelujah
If ever now in the wonder of Your grace
A thousand times a thousand years
My soul will say
Hallelujah
Forever now in the greatness of my Saviour
Forever now in the brightness of
Your Name Jesus on this rock I’ll sing Your praise

Psalm 147:11

Psalm 147:11

We are so blessed that we have a Father that delights in those children who love Him and place their hope in Him.

FATHER by HILLSONG UNITED
To bring this world to life
To heal this heart of mine
Your grace enough
Your grace enough

To mend this world in need
To break the chains in me
Your grace enough
Now this means love

The weight of all our sin upon His shoulders
That we should all be called
Your sons and daughters

Father
Let heaven and earth collide
In the endless wonder
Of Your love upon the cross
We will follow
And offer this life forever
To see Your love unfold

Adopted as Your own
Alive to make You known
Now this means love
This means love

For the lost and for the broken
For the slave and for the orphan
For everyone to realize Your love

From the famous to the faceless
From the beggar to the king
For everyone to realize Your love

You restore the broken hearted
You bring freedom to the captive
For one and all
Forever this means love

All Your children come together
All Your sons and all Your daughters
Your grace enough
Forever this means love
Singing

Your grace enough
Forever this means love
You gave it all
For one and all
Your grace enough
Forever this means love

 

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

SEARCH MY HEART by HILLSONG UNITED
Search my heart
And search my soul
There is nothing else
That I want more

Shine Your light
And show Your face
In my life
Lord have Your way

Hear my cry
And hear my prayer
Draw me close
I know you’re near

Give me strength
And give me grace
To walk with You
Lord, all my days

So with all my heart and all my soul
With all I am, Lord, I will follow You

You took the cross, You took my shame
Restored my life, now I live to worship You

Without You I am nothing
Without You I am nothing
Without You I am nothing
