The Bible


God take us back!

God take us back, 2 the place we began the simple pursuit of nothing but You
The innocence of a heart in Your hands … oh God take us back,
to an unswerving faith
in the power of Your name
A heart beating for Your kingdom to reign,
a church that is known for Your presence again

Broken hallelujah's

How many of our relationships are in ruins… perhaps it is your marriage-once a solid fortress, but now only the ruins of a once safe place. Maybe its your relationship with your children….Or even worse… your relationship with Jesus.

Hopefully, for a split second, I caught your attention and with it came the realization I was actually talking to you.
“Still a song of adoration will rise up from these ruins
With my love and my sadness I come before You Lord. May heart’s inthousand pieces, maybe even more. Yet I trust in this moment. You are with me somehow, and You have always been faithful. So Lord even now when all that I can sing is a broken hallelujah, when my only offering is shattered praise, still a song of adoration will rise up from these ruins and I will worship You and give You thanks. You have given me much more than I deserve - How could I doubt Your goodness, Your wisdom, Your grace?
Lord hear my heart at this painful place, when all I can sing is a broken hallelujah when my…

KEEP ON keeping on

A wife’s prayers for her husband have a far greater effect on him than anyone else’s, even his mother’s. A mother’s prayers for her child are certainly fervent. But when a man marries, he leaves his father and mother and becomes one with his wife (Matthew 19:5). They are a team, one unit, unified in spirit. The strength of a man and wife joined together in God’s sight is far greater than the sum of the strengths of each of the two individuals. That’s because the Holy Spirit unites them and gives added power to their prayers.
This oneness gives us a power that the enemy doesn’t like. That’s why he devises ways to weaken it. He gives us whatever we will fall for, whether it be low self-esteem, pride, the need to be right, miscommunication, or the bowing to our own selfish desires. He will tell you lies like, “Nothing will ever change.” “Your failures are irreparable.” “There’s no hope for reconciliation.” “You’d be happier with someone else.” He’ll tell you whatever you will believe, bec…

'n Man se verraad

My man vind die Here, neem ‘n besluit om Hom te volg en vir die eerste keer in die grootste gedeelte van my menswees, voel ek veilig. Veilig dat my huwelik veilig is. Veilig dat my man die Here se aangesig sal soek wanneer groot besluite geneem moet word. Veilig dat wanneer hy besluite neem wat ek nie mee saamstem nie, ek tog sal onderdanig bly omdat ek in hom glo. Glo dat hy my belange altyd op die hart sal dra en my ten alle tye sal beskerm. Elke keer wanneer ons in die kerk is, oor die Here gesels, by bidgroepe bymekaar kom, op aanbiddingskampe is, word my man vir my net mooier. Wanneer hy sy hande uitsteek na die Here en hom aanbid kan ek my oë nie van my man afhou nie. Dis sooo mooi. Ek is verlief daarop om te sien hoe verlief my man op die Here is. Hoe hy Hom aanroep en aanbid. Sulke oomblikke is in my geheue inge-ets en ek neem ‘n besluit dat wanneer donker wolke bokant ons dreig, ek dit sal oproep en daarin gaan staan totdat ek druppend vol van genade daaruit kan tree. En toe ‘n…
