Precious Saviour

May the perfume of Your love
and the sweetness of Your grace
fill our hearts Lord from above,
bring a smile upon each face.

 May the kindness that You show
that brings warmth to many hearts,
as a soft and gentle glow,
be the kindness we impart.

 May the river of Your peace
overflow and bring elation
and the joy of You increase
through the blessings of salvation.

 Precious Saviour, You are awesome!
You are brighter than the sun!
May the preciousness of knowing You
be felt by everyone!

Forever Love

imgp4177 (beautiful sunset)

 Forever Love will take you through the darkest night.
Forever Love will give you strength and be your light.
When doubts and fears assail and stormy seas you face,
with mercy and compassion, He will give you grace.
 
Forever Love will hold you up and won’t let go.
Forever Love will reassure you and you’ll know
that come what may, the word He speaks is firm and sure;
it stands the test of time and helps you to endure.
 
Forever Love says, “I can heal your wounds and pain”.
Forever Love says, “Drink of My refreshing rain”.
The Healer of the broken-hearted soul is He,
with promises of life for all eternity.
 
Forever Love says, “Come to Me, O weary soul”.
Forever Love will cleanse, forgive and make you whole.
His mighty arms are open wide, from east to west,
to comfort you and bring eternal peace and rest.
 
In Christ alone, you will find Forever Love;
the gift of God, sent to us from heaven above.

 If there’s one thing that’s certain in life – it’s the precious love of God. When all else fails … His love never does! It’s His kind of love, forever love, that sustains us through the mountains and valleys of life. “His mighty arms are open wide from east to west” – that includes everyone…. north and south too!!

Thank You Lord for your precious Forever Love  🙂

Look No Further

IMG_4027b


Look no further, child of Mine

though your friends may turn away,
You can trust My love divine
I’ll be there at the end of the day;

just as I was in the morning light,
when you saw the clear blue skies,
when around you things looked bright
and it was easy to arise.

Even in the twilight hour
when the changing scenes unfold,
My love is like a lasting flower,
never can My love grow old.

Every moment that passes by,
thoughts of you are on My mind.
My love for you is the reason why
I gave My Son so you would find

peace, contentment, joy divine –
light to guide you on your way
Look no further, child of Mine
these blessings can be yours today.

Hope Always

Kozzi-beautiful-forest-with-fog-1185 X 1771


HOPE ALWAYS

Hope when doubts assail you,
hope when around you looks grim

Your God will never fail you.
Just anchor your hope in Him.

Hope when the mountains are crumbling,
hope when you feel insecure.
His steadfast love never ceases;
it’s a love that will always endure.

Hope when there’s nowhere to turn,
hope when you need peace of mind,
trust in the words of the Saviour;
His words are healing and kind.

Each day is a brand new dawn,
ever faithful, the skies above;
each day and new every morn,
we can hope in the Saviour’s love.

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

In The Shadows

 

sunrise on the mountain

There in the shadows
you feel deep within;
there in the shadows,
just call upon Him.

There in the shadows
His light will shine bright,
taking your darkness
and giving you light.

There in the shadows
when no-one is near;
there in the shadows,
He’ll free you from fear.

There in the shadows
is Jesus the Lord,
with love everlasting
that He can afford.

Under the shadow
of His healing wings,
filled with His wonder
and joy you will sing.

There in the secret place
of the most High,
under His shadow
You’ll ever abide.

One Thing Stands Sure

flying gull

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!

Fathomless Love

file8371286030197 morning

God’s fathomless love
keeps me day by day,
shines a light within
when my skies are grey,
keeps my heart in tune,
takes me through the night,
points my soul to heaven –
to Jesus, my Light

Morning Tweets!

birds


I hear them in the morning when I rise,
before the slightest glimpse of light appears.
A moment longer I must close my eyes;
their song so sweetly falls upon my ears.

The music of their tweets now fills the air.
Could man himself create a sweeter sound?
In silence I just want to linger there
and relish as the symphony abounds.

I know this time of bliss can only last
a while, for soon demands call me away.
But I’ll not hurry till the time is past,
for now the sounds of birdsong bid me stay.

So tweet and chirp my friends for I am blest
to hear your song as I arise from rest!
