Verse of the Day – Ecclesiastes 11:8

Ecclesiastes 11:8

Ecclesiastes 11:8

Life can be a real journey some times, day we just want to celebrate life and then the next it feels like it oh so hard to get through.  Just becoming a Christian doesn’t guarantee the easy life, I have found that knowing that I have the Lord with me each day makes the dark days easy.

TIME by JAKE HAMILTON
I’ve been caught up
I’ve been let down
I’ve climbed up the mountain
I got turned around
But You’ve always been steady
You’ve always been true
This has never been about me
I know just what to do

It’s time to love some enemies
Start living and make some memories
It’s time to dream again
And show the world what they’ve been missing
It’s time, this time
To risk it all, to leave it all behind

I’ve been in the glory
I’ve been in the grave
I’ve learned how to sacrifice
I’ve learned to obey
But we won’t stop
Just because things fall apart
Each day offers mercy
It’s a brand new start

It’s time to love some enemies
Start living and make some memories
It’s time to dream again
And show the world what they’ve been missing
It’s time, this time
To risk it all, to leave it all behind

You paid for freedom
But we built religion
But these walls are coming down today
My laughter threatens hell
My gratefulness as well
I may not have it all
But I know I have it all

You paid for freedom
But we built religion
But these walls are coming down today
My laughter threatens hell
My gratefulness as well
I may not have it all
But I know I have it all

You paid for freedom
But we built religion
But these walls are coming down today
My laughter threatens hell
My gratefulness as well
I may not have it all
But I know I have it all

It’s time to love some enemies
Start living and make some memories
It’s time to dream again
And show the world what they’ve been missing

It’s time to love some enemies
Start living and make some memories
It’s time to dream again
And show the world what they’ve been missing, yeah

It’s time to love some enemies
Start living and make some memories
It’s time to dream again
And show the world what they’ve been missing
It’s time, this time
To risk it all, to leave it all behind
 

Verse of the Day – Hosea 4:1

Hosea 4:1

Hosea 4:1

It’s unfortunate that we live in times where this is so true, I was once like this, I couldn’t acknowledge God, let alone love Him.  Then He came when I needed Him most, I didn’t ask Him to, He came anyway and with grace and love, set me free to live again.

GLORIA by JAKE HAMILTON
Another Sunday, another pew
Another prayer going up to you
Sing a song, beat the drum

As the choir starts to sing along

Gloria
King of heaven
King of earth

Gloria
Declare your beauty
Declare your worth

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom, kingdom come

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom, kingdom come

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom, kingdom come

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom come

Aanother meeting, another verse
Another sermon that looks well rehersed
Clap your hands, prepare your hearts
I hear the band is about to start

Gloria
King of heaven
King of earth

Gloria
Declare your beauty
Declare your worth

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom, kingdom come

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom, kingdom come

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom, kingdom come

Sweet Jesus
The blood that frees us
Let your kingdom come

 

Verse of the Day – Luke 12:42-44

Luke 12:42-44

Luke 12:42-44

I am not sure I am always a faithful and wise manager of all that I have, but this last week I have had a turnaround in some aspects of my life, it hasn’t cleared all the gloom this season brings for me, but it has helped to begin lifting it.  Now it is up to me to look after watch I have been blessed with.

I heard this for the first time today and thought it was an amazing song, unfortunately I couldn’t find the lyrics to share.

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

What an amazing promise of God this is.  Knowing that I am His, has been the only thing that has got me through some trying times in the last few years.

EMBRACE by JAKE HAMILTON
I want to feel Your embrace
I want to feel Your arms around
I want to feel Your heart beating
Next to mine, next to mine

And it’s telling me

It’s all gonna be okay
It’s all gonna be okay
It’s all gonna be okay
It’s all gonna be okay

I want to see You Your face
Want to see who I can be
Want to see what You can see
In the mirror of Your eyes

And You’re telling me

It’s all gonna be okay

‘Cause this is the sound of heaven
Invading earth, this is the sound

Philippians 3:15

Philippians 3:15

We will all have opinions and these will differ from those around us, this doesn’t mean I have to argue or try to force my opinion onto others, it is mine to hold and keep, but I should also seek the wisdom of the Lord and let the Holy Spirit be my guide before I speak of it.

MARKED by JAKE HAMILTON
I can hear the deep, deep love of Jesus
Calling out my name, I’ll never be the same
Calling out my name, I’ll never be the same

I’ve been marked be heaven forever and ever
I’ve been marked be heaven forever and ever
I’ve been marked be heaven forever and ever
I’ve been marked be heaven forever and ever

I’m walking in the glory now
And I never plan on coming down
And I never plan on coming down

I can feel the deep, deep blood of Jesus
Wash away my sin, so I can look like Him

I’m moving glory to glory, I’m never looking back
I’m moving glory to glory, I’m never looking back
I’m moving glory to glory, I’m never looking back
I’m moving glory to glory, I’m never looking back

I was made for glory

BEAUTIFUL RIDER by JAKE HAMILTON
How beautiful is the rider on the white horse
How beautiful is the lamb that was slain
How beautiful is the rider on the white horse
Worthy is your name. Worthy is your name

Our only hope was wrapped in hay
Our Fathers promise to show the way
He lived to set the captive free
And died to live Inside of me
He is Savior, He is Lord
Emanuel the living word

How beautiful is the rider on the white horse
How beautiful is the lamb that was slain
How beautiful is the rider on the white horse
Worthy is your name. Worthy is your name

There’s a man who’s wrapped in light
With eyes of fire burning bright
With feet like bronze and a blinding glow
A golden sash and hair like snow
He is King and he is judge
He is mercy and he is love

How beautiful is the rider on the white horse
How beautiful is the lamb that was slain
How beautiful is the rider on the white horse
Worthy is your name. Worthy is your name

Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
And all creation bows before you
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
And all creation bows before you
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
And all creation bows before you
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
And all creation bows before you
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
Your a Lion, your a lamb
And all creation bows before you

 

5 Years Sober

It’s hard to believe that it’s five years since I last had a drink, especially when you consider it was hard to get through a day without a drink.  The truth was, that after seeking help with a phone call to Gareth, I began to gain a level of control.

Then once I began praying to the Lord for help, I began to dislike the taste, it did nothing for me anymore, that initial relief of the first drink of the night, it wasn’t there anymore, the refreshing taste was gone, it began to taste like vinegar, each night it got worse.

So on 29th March 2012 I decided that if I didn’t like the taste of the first drink, then that would be it, no more!

I am thankful to say that it was the worst pint I had ever had, it tasted awful!

And I haven’t had a drink since that night, there have been some big tests of my resolve, but the Lord has seen me through it each time and I remain sober!

Psalm 34:4

Psalm 34:4

I will ever be thankful to God for answering my prayers, for finding my at my depths and delivering me to a new life.  I am thankful for all the members of His kingdom that He led me to, without them, this journey would have been so much harder.

This is just the start, five years it just a ripple, the journey now is really just beginning and I can’t wait to see where it leads me.
