Grace of God

October 27, 2007

For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people.
Titus 2:11

If Not For Your Grace – Israel & New Breed

Where would I be
If not for your grace
Carrying me
Through every season
Where would I be
If not for Your grace
Came to rescue me
And I want to thank You
For Your grace

Grace that restores
Grace that redeems
Grace that releases
Me to worship
Grace that repairs
Visions and dreams
Grace that releases
Miracles

Keep Yourself Pure

October 23, 2007

If you keep yourself pure, you will be a utensil God can use for his purpose. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.
2 Timothy 2:21

Carefully Guard What?

October 21, 2007

With the help of the Holy Spirit who lives within us, carefully guard what has been entrusted to you.
2 Timothy 1:14

Although Paul is speaking to Timothy – he is speaking to each of us. What exactly have we been entrusted with? Verse 13 gives us the answer:

Hold on to the pattern of right teaching you learned from me. And remember to live in the faith and love that you have in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 1:13

Cling tightly to your faith in Christ, and always keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.
1 Timothy 1:19

tr.v.   ship·wrecked, ship·wreck·ing, ship·wrecks

1. Nautical
1. To cause a ship to be destroyed, as by storm or collision.
2. To cause (a passenger or sailor on a ship) to suffer shipwreck.
2. To ruin utterly.

Protected by Faith & Love

October 12, 2007

But let us who live in the light think clearly, protected by the body armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.
1 Thessalonians 5:8

Faithful is Our God 

Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God
Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God
Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God
I’m reaping the harvest God promised me
Take back what the devil stole from me
And I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all
Yes, I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all

Holy, holy, holy is our God
Holy, holy, holy is our God
Holy, holy, holy is our God
Holy, holy, holy is our God
I’m reaping the harvest God promised me
Take back what the devil stole from me
And I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all
Yes, I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is our God
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is our God
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is our God
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is our God
I’m reaping the harvest God promised me
Take back what the devil stole from me(12x)

And I rejoice today(8x)
For I shall recover it all

Planted Along a Riverbank

October 11, 2007

But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing delicious fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8

Follow God’s Example

September 27, 2007

Follow God’s example in everything you do, because you are his dear children.
Ephesians 5:1

Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:10

Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do.
Ephesians 5:17

You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.
Matthew 5:14

I know this is really a departure from what I usually post on this blog, and some people may not like the music, but my heart is just BOOMIN! So…gotta post Toby Mac’s Boomin’ on this Saturday..

I’ve been around the way
I’ve been around the block
I got the keys to the city if the gates are locked
And a freak like me ain’t ‘bout to stop
I got a hand full of dreams and a heart full of God

Everywhere we go they wonder where we’re from
Well its diverse city ya’ll welcome to come
It sits high on a hill you can see it for days
And even if you can’t you can hear our praise
We go …

‘Cause we’re boomin’ out the stereo system
This goes out to anyone listening
Boomin’ out the stereo system
Here to rep the most high with this one
Boomin’ out the stereo system
This goes out to anyone listening
Boomin’ out the stereo system
‘Cause we rock for sure in stereo

If you’re looking to slide, come slide with us
And if you’re looking for a ride, it’s a big old bus
We got black folk, white folk and Middle East
Mexican, Filipino – Jesus Freaks
Got a Haitian Princess, an Aussie Mate
East Coast, Midwest to left side of the states
And when the bus rolls, it’s out the dirty south
Tennessee and we keepin’ it good and loud we go

I got portable sounds to lift me up
Portable sounds to take me higher
Portable sounds to lift me up
So don’t even try to get in my head

The Light

September 21, 2007

The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:4-5

Great Light of the World by Bebo Norman

Sometimes at night
I am afraid
I cover my eyes,
Cover my shame
So here in the dark
Broken apart
Come with your light
And fill up my heart

Oh great light of the world
Fill up my soul
I’m half a man here
So come make me whole
Oh great light of the world
Come to impart
The light of your grace
To fill up my heart

The wind of this world
Can push us around
Folding us up
Backing us down
But here in the dark
I’m not alone
So come with your strength
And carry me home

Oh great light of the world
Fill up my soul
I’m half a man here
So come make me whole
Oh great light of the world
Come to impart
The light of your grace

Oh great light of the world
Fill up my soul
I’m half a man here
So come make me whole
Oh great light of the world
Come to impart
The light of your grace
To fill up my heart

The light of your grace
To fill up my heart

A Wide River

September 20, 2007

The LORD will be our Mighty One. He will be like a wide river of protection that no enemy can cross.
Isaiah 33:21

You Must Come In At the Door

God’s got a way…That you can’t go over
God’s got a way That you can’t go under
God’s got a way That you can’t go around Him
You must come in at the door
You must come in at the door

He’s the way
the truth and the life
if you want to see Jesus you’ve got to live right
you must be saved
from all of your sin
Marvel not
you must be born again
You must come in at the door
