There’s A Love

1-1202055758tict orange rose


There’s a love that’s like no other.

It’s a love that’s from on high.
There’s none like it in this world,
the love of God for you and I.

Breaking barriers, building bridges,
reaching high and low alike,
it can overcome the darkness
with its penetrating light.

It’s a love that brings forgiveness
and will pardon every sin.
It is found in Christ the Saviour,
as we ask Him to come in.

It’s a love that says “You’re special”.
It’s a love that calls you “Friend”.
If you open up your heart, you’ll find
it’s a love that never ends.

Make A Difference


Let’s make a difference

by things that we say;
help brighten the day,
along our life’s way.

Let’s make a difference
by showing we care,
by just being there
when emotions are bare.

Let’s make a difference
by staying a while,
by sharing a smile,
going that extra mile.

Let’s make a difference
by sharing God’s peace
that brings a release;
help worries to cease.

Let’s make a difference,
it may strike a chord,
bring untold reward
and praise to our Lord.

Let’s make a difference
along our life’s way.
“Lord help us, we pray
to start from today”.

Where Shall I Go?

Where Shall I Go

 A wonderful refuge and shelter is found in the Lord Jesus Christ,
as expressed in my poem “Where Shall I Go?” above.

 “Whom have I in heaven but thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee”
(Psalm 73:25)

God’s Grace, our Strength

Some thoughts for the day:

Dear friends …  I just wanted to share with you some thoughts from moments of reflection. While washing the dishes the other day, I stared out the kitchen window and thought about how I used to worry a lot about how people saw me or thought of me. Before I accepted Christ in my life, I used to feel inferior to others. My life circumstances had not been straightforward and this affected my confidence.

When I came to Christ, I felt such peace and assurance. I knew God loved me and felt I was “somebody” in His sight. As time went by, I sometimes worried again about what other Christians thought of me. This may sound silly, but this was my experience. I felt that others were really moving on with God and my progress was slow. But then as my relationship with Jesus grew deeper, through the Holy Spirit, everything changed and I felt greater peace and assurance.

When we see ourselves through our own eyes and think about our shortcomings and weaknesses, or the way we think others see us, we can feel restricted. But when we see ourselves through the eyes of God, receive His love and what His word says about us – we can make that step forward into victorious living, fruitfulness or new beginnings – knowing for sure that we can rely on His strength. Our strength may fail us, His never will.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9a). “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1)

Prayer:

Thank you dear Lord for Your precious love for us. Thank You that You’re always near, ready to supply all that we need and that it’s all about giving You our weaknesses in exchange for Your strength. Help us not to look at ourselves and what we can’t do, but at You and what You can! Amen.

Love and blessings!
Christine

One Thing Stands Sure

ONE THING STANDS SURE

Thunderstorms may follow clouds of grey
crisp winter snow may fall each day
winds of change may re-arrange
things may often look strange
but one thing stands sure
nought can obscure
Your love that
shines as
gold!
