Verse of the Day – John 13:34-35

John 13:34-35

John 13:34-35

It is our love for one another that we will be set apart and called His disciples and if we are truly His disciples we shall never deny Him.

STREETS by ABOVE THE GOLDEN STATE
When shadows turn to faces
When faces take on names
When names tell us their stories
Of their brokenness and pain

When love flows through the cities
Through the grid of all the streets
Under bridges in the alleys
Like blood through our veins

Love is real
Love will bleed
Love will heal, love
Love will need

When love is used like money
It turns into our greed
When love is more like water
Then everyone will drink

So, let it flow through all our cities
(Like the rivers fall)
And flood them like the sea
(Love fill us all)
Fill the souls that hunger
Lord, give us what we need, yeah

 

Verse of the Day – Ephesians 5:1-2

Ephesians 5:1-2

Ephesians 5:1-2

Sometimes in this world the hardest thing to do is love, but when nothing else is left, when you’ve tried everything else and nothing seems to change, the only way to overcome what comes is against is to love like Christ.

Love, change the world, yeah
Love, change the world

You can see it when He walks around
You can feel it when He moves the ground
We’re all colored with a crimson stain
Can you see it now?
Can you see Him now?

From the clouds to the world below
From the mountain to the city of gold
Love is coming like an urgent rain
Can you feel it now?
Can you feel Him now?

From the clouds to the world below

Verse of the Day – Romans 5:1

Romans 5:1

Romans 5:1

Though the chaos of my past may still surround me, I still find peace through Christ’s sacrifice for me.

STREETS by ABOVE THE GOLDEN STATE
I lift my eyes to behold Your beauty
And I can feel Your heavenly pull
You meet my eyes, with Your love enfold me
To rest upon, the gaze of my soul

In front of me is the figure I long for
And I will turn to see no one else
But I’m consumed by Your grace and wonder
I’m finding You as I lose myself
I’m finding You as I lose

I, I wanna gaze into Your eyes
I wanna lose my soul in You, You
When I stare into Your eyes
I can see You looking back at me

The definition of my faith is a wonder
I’d rather look to You than know
Lord, I believe and I feel You moving
When I love with the love You’ve shown

The distractions of this world have trapped me
But I’m returning to the rest I’ve known
As a bird flies away and wanders
Returning to my heavenly home
Returning to my heavenly

I, I wanna gaze into Your eyes
I wanna lose my soul in You, You
When I stare into Your eyes
I can see You looking back at me
I can see You looking back at me

I can see You looking back
I, my eyes are on You
I can see You looking
I can see You looking back

I, I wanna gaze into Your eyes
I wanna lose my soul in You, You
When I stare into Your eyes
I can see You looking back
When I stare into Your eyes
I can see You looking back at me

Scenes From My Week

It’s been a mixed bag of weather here over this last week, but there has been the odd moment of sunshine through the wind and rain.  Luckily I managed to catch a few sunrises and sunsets on my way to and from work.

BRAIN FRIED!!!!!!!

I am officially shattered this evening, it’s been a long, long weekend, it’s Sunday evening and I’ve just finished work at 8.15pm!!!!  On a Sunday!!!  Sunday’s are for Church then Karate, but work as well?

I could just close my eyes and sleep, if I wasn’t so hungry and still actually mentally buzzing!

Friday was a great night at Amplified once again, our youth ministry is growing each week, but for me it makes a long day, but I don’t mind.  I work from 7.30am to 4pm, then leave to teach karate from 4.30 to 6pm, then rush home change and out to Church until gone 10pm, a long, but extremely enjoyable day.

Yesterday was a crazy day too, I went for a 3 hour walk first thing, then at 10.30am went to Ursula’s for what I thought would be 3 or 4 hours of architectural work, wrong, eight hours later I walked home with a fried brain!!!!

So this morning another early start at Church to get the cameras set up, then filming the main service, Justin was preaching this week and boy did he cover every inch of the stage, he never stood still for too long, I had to concentrate so hard on the tiny viewing screen to follow him and keep in view, hard work, but I enjoy it, I actually enjoy the test, it helps me improve my camera work, especially with ECTV due to go live in two weeks.

A bit if lunch then off to karate for two and half hours of teaching, then leave there to go back to Ursula’s for another two and half hours staring at a computer screen, now I’m completely brain fried, but I’m not finished yet, I’m back there tomorrow night after work as well.

So now for tea and then, hopefully, a long and peaceful sleep!!!!

I heard this song on my iPod whilst walking yesterday, I’ve listened to it many times, but yesterday morning it really caught my attention, so I thought I would share it with you all.
