Romans 10:17

Romans 10:17

One thing that has been such a inspiration in the hard times, is spending time with friends and the word of Christ.

WORD OF GOD SPEAK by MERCYME
I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay

From time to time we have to suffer the harsh winter, before we can walk into the new life that spring brings with it.

NEW LEASE ON LIFE by MERCYME
Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul
Come and take me to the river and make me whole
It’s down with the old up with the new
The hard reset my life take two
Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul

I’ve got a new lease on life
They say you only live once
But I live twice
I’ve got a new lease on life
I’ve got a new lease on life
Yeah…

Oh Lord remind me of who I am
My chains have been shattered I’m a brand new man
I’m free indeed, I’m dead no more
At my worst I’m still adored
Oh Lord remind me, this is who I am

I’ve got a new lease on life
They say you only live once
But I live twice
I’ve got a new lease on life
I’ve got a new lease on life
Yeah…

The enemy knows where I call my home, but he’s still trying
To mess up my life in the meantime, so Lord remind me

I’ve got a new lease on life
They say you only live once
But I live twice
I’ve got a new lease on life
I’ve got a new lease on life
Yeah…

Isaiah 44:22

Isaiah 44:22

When sin drove me to the brink, thankfully the Father called me back, I’ll be forever thankful for His grace.

THE HURT AND THE HEALER by MERCYME
Why?
The question that is never far away
The healing doesn’t come from being explained
Jesus please don’t let this go in vain
You’re all I have
All that remains

So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it’s all that I can do
Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord take hold and pull me through

So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

It’s the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood
When mercy takes it’s rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of the weakness we must bow
And hear You say “It’s over now”

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take this heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into your arms open wide
When The hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
And find Your glory even here

Verse of the Day – Hosea 14:9

Hosea 14:9

Hosea 14:9

Sometimes I need a reminder, just a nudge every now and again, to keep walking in His ways, to keep walking with Him.

FINISH WHAT HE STARTED by MERCYME
I don’t have to know you
To know that you will go through hard times
It’s just part of life
Don’t let that moment blind you
And don’t let it define you
Take heart, that’s not who you are

Our god is able, more than capable
And to be faithful until the end
Of it has finally started

No matter what you’ve done
Grace comes like a flood
There’s hope to carry on
He’ll finish what he started
No matter what you face
His mercy will not change
He’s with you all the way
He’ll finish what he started

Remember you’re forgiven
So there’s no need to give into the light, you’re qualified

Our god is able, more than capable
And to be faithful until the end
Of it has finally started

No matter what you’ve done
Grace comes like a flood
There’s hope to carry on
He’ll finish what he started
No matter what you face
His mercy will not change
He’s with you all the way
He’ll finish what he started

This world can started in the now
His faith is now completed
A promise we’ll see when he cried out
It is finished

No matter what you’ve done
Grace comes like a flood
There’s hope to carry on
He’ll finish what he started
No matter what you face
His mercy will not change
He’s with you all the way
He’ll finish what he started

Verse of the Day – Philippians 4:8-9

Philippians 4:8-9

Philippians 4:8-9

Sometime I fall into what’s easy, rather than practising what I have learn, but I’m thankful His peace is with me regardless.

BEST OF ME by MERCYME
Why would I want to try and meet You half way?
Why would I back down when there’s still a fight in me?
Why only give You what I hold in my hands?
Why would I ever jump with nowhere to land?
And why surrender if I won’t go to my knees?

I won’t just give you the best of me
(The best of, the best of me)
When you want, ’cause you want my everything
(My every, my everything)

Who am I to give You just the pretty things?
Am I the same as the one who gives You nothing?
What if nothing was what You chose to do
All because the cost was too much for You?
I can’t imagine where I would be

I won’t just give You the best of me
(The best of, the best of me)
When You want, ’cause You want my everything
(My every, my everything)
Won’t You come and take what’s left
And while You’re here take the rest
I won’t just give You the best of me
(The best of, the best of me)

Not just my heart, but my life too
I belong, I belong, I belong to You

I won’t just give You the best of me
(The best of, the best of me)
When You want, ’cause You want my everything
(My every, my everything)
Won’t You come and take what’s left
And while You’re here take the rest?
I won’t just give You the best of me
(The best of, the best of me)
(My every, my everything)
(The best of, the best of me)

An Eight Year Old’s One Direction Birthday!

It would seem my daughter’s eighth birthday turned out to be a One Direction themed birthday, to say she has a One Direction obsession is an understatement.  Almost half the cards were One Direction, some of the clothes were One Direction and the pièce de résistance, a singing One Direction tooth brush, really who came up with that idea?

More One Direction

A Singing Toothbrush!

This is my favourite photo of my daughter, together with our old dog “Wylie Burp”, he would lay there and let her just sit on his back for ages, she would only have been around two years old at the time.

BEAUTIFUL by MERCYME
Days will come when you don’t have the strength
When all you hear is you’re not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart
They’d see too much

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You’re beautiful

and Praying that you have the heart to fight
Cuz you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you’ve held inside so long
and they are nothing in the shadow of the cross

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You’re beautiful

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skies above
You’re the one He madly loves
Enough to die

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
In His eyes

You’re beautiful
You were meant for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You were meant for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are treasured
You are sacred
You are His

Meet Our New Visitor!

Last night my daughter told me one of her short stories, both her and Victoria had seen a toad/frog in the garden!  I kind of dismissed it at the time, although we are within walking distance of a lake, only  a few minutes away, having been here over five years now I haven’t seen any toad or frog in the garden.

So this morning when I opened the gate to go to work I found the said frog, sat just outside the gate, she seemed to just sit there as I walked by, then eventually turned and shuffled back into the garden.

What You Looking At!

What You Looking At!

Having grown up with garden ponds full of frogs and toads, I don’t mind them at all, although the rest of the family won’t go near it.  But as it’s not doing any harm, I leave it be!

ALL CREATION by MERCYME
Separated until the veil was torn
The moment that hope was born
and guilt was pardoned once and for all

Captivated but no longer bound by chains
left at an empty grave
the sinner and the sacred resolved

And all of creation sing with me now
lift up your voice and lay your burden down
and all of creation sing with me now
fill up the heavens let his glory resound

Time has faded and we see him face to face
every doubt erased forever we will worship the king

And all of creation sing with me now
lift up your voice and lay your burden down
and all of creation sing with me now
fill up the heavens let his glory resound

ohh ah ohhh…ohh ah ohhh

the reason we breathe is to sing of his glory
and for all he has done praise the father praise the son and the spirit in one

And all of creation sing with me now
lift up your voice and lay your burden down
and all of creation sing with me now
fill up the heavens let his glory resound

And all of creation sing with me now
lift up your voice and lay your burden down
and all of creation sing with me now
fill up the heavens let his glory resound

And every knee will bow oh and every tongue praise
the father praise the son and the spirit in one

Verse of the Day – Zephaniah 3:18-20

Zephaniah 3:18-20

Zephaniah 3:18-20

I know that sometimes I doubt the promises our God makes, but why?  I already know He’s has done so many of the things He has promised for me, He keeps doing them each and every day, yet I still doubt!

YOU ARE I AM by MERCYME
I’ve been the one
To shake with fear
And wonder if
You’re even here

I’ve been the one
To doubt Your love
I’ve told myself
You’re not enough

I’ve been the one
To try and say
I’ll overcome
By my own strength

I’ve been the one
To fall apart
And start to question
Who You are

You’re the One who conquers giants
You’re the One who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the One who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the One Messiah
You are I Am

I’ve been the one
Held down in chains
Beneath the weight
Of all my shame

I’ve been the one
To believe
That where I am
You cannot reach

You’re the One who conquers giants
You’re the One who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the One who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the One Messiah
You are I Am
You are I Am

The veil is torn
And now I live
With the Spirit inside
The same One
The very same One
Who brought the Son
Back to life

Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me

You’re the One who conquers giants
You’re the One who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the One who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the One Messiah
You are I Am
(Hallelujah, He lives in me)
You are I Am
(Hallelujah, He lives in me)

Verse of the Day – Isaiah 26:3

Isaiah 26:3

Isaiah 26:3

I fell into a dark train of thought earlier this evening, I let my mind and my eyes drift from where I should keep them fixed.

DON’T GIVE UP ON ME by MERCYME
Will You find me no matter where I am
Will You forgive time and time again
I feel like a child wondering
It’s hard to believe, to comprehend
That You would love me in the state I’m in

When I’m falling
When I’m falling down
When it’s all stripped away
When my world comes crashing
Crashing down
Will You still be with me

Who am I You’d even say my name
Within the same the same breath as grace
You cross every bridge I have burned
You reach for me when it’s undeserved

When I’m falling
When I’m falling down
When it’s all stripped away
When my world comes crashing
Crashing down
Will You still be with me

Oh don’t give up on me
Oh don’t give up on me

Be still I’ll never leave you
When you’re far I am near
My grace will always be greater
Than the sum of all your fears

Be still I’ll never leave you
When you’re far I am near
My grace will always be greater
Than the sum of all your fears

When I’m falling
When I’m falling down
When it’s all stripped away
When my world comes crashing
Crashing down
Will You still be with me

Oh don’t give up on me (don’t give up, don’t give up on me)
Oh don’t give up on me (don’t give up, don’t give up on me)
When I’m falling down (don’t give up, don’t give up on me)
You don’t give up, don’t give up on me

Just A Baby, Growing Up To Quickly

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

Last week my daughter ran into the room brandishing a photo in her hand, when she calmed down from her hysterical laughter we found she had this picture of herself when she was just a few months old, she couldn’t actually believe it was her and that she may of actually looked like that once.

Eve

Eve

This was taken almost seven years ago, doesn’t time fly, now she’s seven going on seventeen, a real madame at times and at others the most loving little girl you could ever wish for.

There one thing she is expert at and that is giving her Dad a hug when he needs one and just lately he’s needed quite a few.

Days will come when you don’t have the strength
And all you hear is you’re not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart
They’d see too much
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You’re beautiful
