Conquering Hate – Matthew 5:44

Conquering Hate – Matthew 5:44

Evil cannot fight evil
And hate cannot conquer hatred
For as they say
Two wrongs don’t make a right
So love will defeat evil
Only love conquers hate
So love those that are enemies
Pray for those that come against
Let love be the warrior that stands
Triumphant until Christ returns

Matthew 5:44

Darkness May Linger – Joshua 10:25

Darkness May Linger – Joshua 10:25

The night is long
Yet it won’t last
Still as it passes
I never leave
Darkness may linger
But it never overcomes
The light I bring
So do not be afraid
Do not be discouraged
I am here tonight
And here I will stay
Beyond the morning come
Forever and always
I stand at your side
Darkness can never win
While I carry the fight

Verse of the Day – James 1:2-3

James 1:2-3

James 1:2-3

I can safely say the last few weeks have been a real test, it certainly hasn’t been easy and there is a way to go yet until I fully recover.  But the difference is now that I refuse to see any of this a problem or to throw my hands up and say why me?  I am just getting on with it, it’s inconvenience, but nothing that cannot be overcome.

I know that given the accident that I had, I shouldn’t be walking, my legs should be broken and crushed, but my Lord’s protection means I just have bad bruising, so who am I to complain, instead I praise God for that protection, I give thanks that there is no lasting damage.  From this I will grow stronger, from this I feel closer to God than I have been in a while.

UNBREAKABLE by FIREFLIGHT
Where are the people that accused me?
The ones who beat me down and bruised me
They hide just out of sight
Can’t face me in the light
They’ll return but I’ll be stronger

God, I want to dream again
Take me where I’ve never been
I want to go there
This time I’m not scared
Now I am unbreakable, it’s unmistakable
No one can touch me
Nothing can stop me

Sometimes it’s hard to just keep going
But faith is moving without knowing
Can I trust what I can’t see?
To reach my destiny
I want to take control but I know better

God, I want to dream again
Take me where I’ve never been
I want to go there
This time I’m not scared
Now I am unbreakable, it’s unmistakable
No one can touch me
Nothing can stop me

Forget the fear it’s just a crutch
That tries to hold you back
And turn your dreams to dust
All you need to do is just trust

God, I want to dream again
Take me where I’ve never been
I want to go there
This time I’m not scared
Now I am unbreakable, it’s unmistakable
No one can touch me
Nothing can stop me

God, I want to dream again
Take me where I’ve never been
I want to go there
This time I’m not scared
Now I am unbreakable, it’s unmistakable
No one can touch me
Nothing can stop me

 

Hopes And Prayers – Job 6:8

Hopes And Prayers – Job 6:8

I have prayed and prayed
And my hope has waned
Yet still I know
That He answers my prayers
One day He will grant
The hopes of my heart
Yet still in the yearning
I find the gift of patience grow
Still I feel His love
Above it all
And that will never wane
Then neither will my hope

Moment Of Need – Exodus 15:26

Moment Of Need – Exodus 15:26

It’s two weeks on
And today I walk
Though I know I shouldn’t
I shouldn’t walk at all
Yet He protected me
The Lord I praise
In that moment of need
When all could be crushed
I rise again
With nothing left broken
My protector, my shield
In the moment of need
I thank You for all
And lift up my praise

Exodus 15:26

Praise? – Matthew 23:11-12

Praise? – Matthew 23:11-12

My eyes have glanced across the room
Looking for the praise of the people here
Yet who am I and what have I done?
Any more than each of those in this room?
But this is human, a trait of us all
Looking to be exalted for all we do
My eyes are falling to my feet below
Who I am is not locked in the praise I receive
Who I am is found the praise that I give
So for now I let it all fall and I carry on
Silent in serving, yet praising in great voice

Matthew 23:11-12

Darkest Night – Romans 14:1

Darkest Night – Romans 14:1

To you my friend
I offer my hand
For I was once
Just like you
How could I believe?
Someone show me a sign
Until I asked for help
And His hand was min
For now I am here
Whenever you are ready
If you ever struggle
Know I am here
And the hand that came to me
In my darkest night
Will be here with me
Ready to reach out to you
In your darkest night

Romans 14:1
