True Love Was Born In A Manger…

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, […]

If It Satisfies You Lord… It Satisfies Me…

Oh, how I love Jesus…Oh, how I love Jesus…Oh, how I love Jesus, Because He first loved me! The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will.

Faith…Believe…Trust…Do Not Doubt

 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.  Matthew 21:21  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Matthew 17:20 There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.  Proverbs 19:21  But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.  Matthew 19:26 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.  James 1:2-4  The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.  Psalm 34:17-18 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly […]

Sing Praises Unto Our King…

Courage…strength… peace… All 3 things I needed this past Sunday morning. Let me take you back to a Sunday morning in my past (as a youngster…probably 12?)…I got up to sing “God so loved the world” only to get half way through, glancing into the congregation, seeing my Great Aunt with tears streaming down her cheeks. Seeing her cry, made me begin crying and I ran back to my seat without finishing the song. The rest of the service, I just wanted to hide under my Momma’s arm from embarrassment and fear… Embarrassment because I was not able to finish the song, crying in front of everyone… Fear… because I was so worried about what everyone would think or say about me. Of course, my Great Aunt came to me explaining she was touched by the song was the reason for her tears. At the age I was though, I just couldn’t understand it. (Yes, I knew Jesus… but not at such a personal profound relationship yet.) I had been in Christmas plays at my church, even sung with others and with a lady that played the piano… I sang at church with a friend who played the guitar and finally made it through without tears. Still yet, I wanted to run and hide because I was so worried about what others may think or how I sounded or what they may say once church was over and they go […]

His Peace…

Peace I leave with you…My Peace I give to you not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 Be anxious for nothing, but everything in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds throughout Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-8 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for […]
