Don’t Give Up

DON'T GIVE UP

There’s a promise in the Bible for you;
the answer to your heart’s cry,
Dear Friend – if you open its pages
and just read .. you’ll soon see why,
Despite the despair and the darkness,
there is hope for you today,
and it’s found in the Lord Jesus Christ
for all who will call on His Name!

A good place to begin to find out about the love of God
is by reading in the Bible the gospels, found in the New Testament.

(eg. start with St John)

St John 3: 16
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life”
(NASB)

~ ~ ~

God bless you !

Sing Your Song

Dear Friends, as we journey through life and unforeseen events occur, whether simple or greatly distressing, our faith may be tested – feelings may get in the way – sometimes we may be anxious, but there’s hope …….

As a glimmer of light on a starless night
faith keeps hope alive.
When days seem long and you don’t feel strong,
faith will help you thrive.

Like Winter, Summer, Autumn or Spring,
life brings seasons of change.
As sure as the sun, trials do come,
but friend – don’t think it strange.

Faith sings a song of joy within
for things still yet unseen;
rejoicing in hope, it helps you to win,
so don’t give up your dream.

Hold onto God through faith in Christ
and always sing your song.
The answer will come, just trust in Him,
each day as you journey along.

God’s word tells us that
“..this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4).

Through Him, we can still stand. Amen!

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!

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

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
