Don’t Be Afraid

February 21, 2009

Mark 5:36 (NLT)

Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; celebrate His wonderful name with music.

Trouble? Trust Him…

March 7, 2008

Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.
Psalm 50:15

I’m feeling this song in my spirit this morning…He Is My One Desire!!!

One Desire – Hillsong from the Blessed CD

You gave it all for me
My soul desire, my everything
And all I am is devoted to You

How could I fail to see
You are the love that rescued me
And all I am is devoted to You

And oh, how could I not be moved
Lord here with You
So have Your way in me
Cause Lord, there is just one thing
That I will seek

This is my cry
My one desire
Is to be where You are, Lord
Now and forever
It’s more than a song
My one desire
Is to be with You
Is to be with You, Jesus

Healed – Faith – Trust

February 21, 2008

For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his clothing, I will be healed!”
Mark 5:28

And he said to her, “Daughter your faith has made you well. Go in peace. You have been healed!”
Mark 5:34

But Jesus ignored their comments and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just trust me.”
Mark 5:36

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
Hebrews 11:6

Convinced

January 27, 2008

The leaders were soon convinced that the LORD had sent Moses and Aaron. And when they realized that the LORD had seen their misery and was deeply concerned for them, they all bowed their heads and worshiped.
Exodus 4:31

This passage touched me this morning. I realize that I could not be a child of God until I was convinced that Jesus was born, lived on this earth, died on a cross and is resurrected from the dead and living. We all have to be convinced before we can be His child.  That word just keeps popping out to me.

Word of God … Speak

October 19, 2007

And the Lord came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”
1 Samuel 3:10

Word of God Speak – Mercyme

I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say

[CHORUS]
Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice

[REPEAT CHORUS 2x]

I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
