It's good to know I belong

In the shelter of Your eyes
I have finally learned the song
It took so long to realise
I just can’t make in on my own
Words are only what they say
But this feeling isn’t wrong
I’m so glad I found my way
It’s good to be where I belong
And I’m gonna stay right here
Coz I’m in the rhythm of Your mind
Tune out the world and rest my head
Beneath the shelter of Your eyes.

Kiss all this hurtin away

I’ve spent my life looking for You
Finding my way wasn’t easy to do
I know You were there all the while
And it’s been worth every mile
So lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
Kiss all the hurting of this world away
Hold me so close that I feel Your heartbeat
And don’t ever wonder away
Mornings and evenings all were the same
And there was no music till I heard Your Name
But I knew when I saw You smile
Now I can rest for a while
So lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
Kiss all the hurtin of this world away
Hold me so close that I feel Your heartbeat
And don’t ever wander away

a Friend 4 life

When I need hope and inspiration
You're always
strong when I'm tired and weak
I could search this whole
world over
You'd still be
everything that I need.

You brought love like I've never known
You gave
life to all my children
And to me, a
reason to go on.
You're my bread when I'm hungry
You're my
shelter from troubled winds
You're my
anchor in life's ocean
But most of all, You're my
best Friend

Am I dead yet?

For as long as I can remember I 've always struggled with negative thoughts…. Thoughts of insecurity; that I’m not clever enough, pretty enough, good enough – especially when I hear of someone else’s success or breakthroughs. I would ponder for days on ‘what have I done wrong’ or ‘did not do’ to have the same favour as others have had. Somedays I don't even give it a thought and then there are days.....
 
For the most part I am content with what I have when it comes to material things. It’s just that I’m at a place in my life where I question the direction of my life. Am I at the right place - my ministry, my job, my marriage, my friends, the choices I make ~ I feel weak, fragile, drained, wearied. It’s as if I’m in a desert place and there is just no way out – whatever way I choose to go on  it’s just not where the oasis is. Maybe I walked straight into the desert because of the mystified choices I’ve made or maybe I just drifted towards the desert .... I don't even know how I got here. Or when.  I just know I am here.
God, can You hear me? I want more. I want out. What am I missing? You know me Lord-----this isn't me. I'm drowning in the quick-sand of life. My visions are blurry and my steps far from steadfast. I'm overwhelmed by all the disappointments, the unanswered prayers. The battle has been hard and fierce. I have failed. I'm terrified and alone - Am I dead?
Please don't take Your Holy Spirit away from me....
Wednesday ~In the early morning hours God woke me up to give me hope
Isaiah 43 .18-9 ~ Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
 
Friday ~ much needed encouragement followed
 
You are about to have significant breakthroughs in a number of areas in your life and circumstances. But you must believe that I am telling you the truth. You have had to face many challenges that have been not only difficult but daunting. Now you will begin to move out of that WILDERNESS experience.
Hosea 2.15 ~ I will give her, her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Anchor as a door of hope; she shall sing there as in the days of her hope, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

because He lives

God sent his son, they call Him Jesus
He came 2 love, heal and 4give
He lived and died 2 buy my pardon,
an empty grave is there 2 prove my Saviour lives
Because He lives I can face 2morrow
because He lives all fear is gone
because I know He holds the future,
and life is worth the living just because He lives
because He lives...4ever I have hope!

8 Characteristics of Believers Who Don’t Give Up in the Battle

Living for Christ is hard—sometimes so hard that we’re tempted to wonder if it’s worth the sacrifice. It is, of course, but difficultie...
