Look to Him

Bite Sized Thoughts, Christianity, Faith

Look to God, not on your situations.

Even your situations are meant to bow down before Him. Sit, relax, ‘rest’ and watch Him do it. When we humbly admit that we cannot do things on our own, we allow Him to work in and through us. Humility is a position to receive Grace. The ability to be joyful and thankful amid trying times comes from knowing that He is in control.  If I may borrow these words from one of our church leaders, David Kahn, who spoke for our Life Series: “Press your heart unto Jesus’s chest.”  I believe that’s truly where genuine “rest” begins to happen. Try to taste and see that He is good, you will never fail to praise Him.

“Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way!” (Jude 1:1-2 MSG)

Photo: "I've discovered praising God is at the center of contentment. As we praise Him, we find the assurance that He's got things covered ... even babies who cry inconsolably and our longing for significance.

It's there, in knowing God sees us and hasn't forgotten us, we find peace.

And it's there, in every walking-rocking-sleepless night, we find purpose.

My season of life is different now, but I'm still faced with saying "goodbye" to things I love. That "little" boy moves away to college next month, and I'm praying for an attitude like King David's — full of praise, grace and generosity of heart.” - Glynnis Whitwer

Why Do I Pray?

Faith, Life Lessons and Impressions, Poetry, Uncategorized

Because I believe, I  receive

Because I received, I believe

Because I expect, He perfects

Because I am His, life’s a bliss

Because he has it all, my all is his

Why do I pray?

Because he tells me to ask and say

Because not a second I am forgotten.

Because not a blink he fails to listen

Because my every breath shall thank

Because He is whatever I need to fill this ________.

Why ?

I Rise as You Are Risen

victory-over-bad-habits

Life is never the same again

When I found You

How can I ever fathom Your Love for me

When at my worst You gave Your very best

That day when Heaven became silent

You did it just so You can hear me loud today

No other event can surpass the greatness

Of this beautiful exchange

Your Son, sinless and blameless

Became sin so I can be made righteous

He was crowned with the worst thorns

Just so I can have the Best Crown

He thought of me when He died

He thought of me when He was risen

Oh, what a beautiful Love to rest in!

Unconditional, unfailing and unending

Nothing can come between us

Your love for me is greater than anything

It never runs out

Because He won, I will forever win

Because He loves, I can forever love

Because there is Hope in His resurrection,

I can have Hope

Not in what I do

But in who You are and what You have done

Because of that,

I can walk in health and wholeness

Because He is and has everything, I can have everything

I may see darkness

But I look to Your Light

I may have stumbled

But I will continue to run

Worst things may come

But they will never matter

For I know I have the Best

Your love is greater than

my circumstances

I look to You alone

Who made everything good available for me

When You said “It is finished.”

I rise as You are risen

Death has no power since You have conquered death

Everything finds purpose in You

How can I not be moved by this Love

When it is the most powerful thing

the world has ever known?

My heart will sing to you

Make us fall in love with You

More and more

Love is all the You are

Thank You for redeeming me

That cost Jesus’ blood

Lover of my soul, You truly are

I will triumph as You have triumphed!

I will rise as You are risen!

All Glory is Yours!
