Your Love

Restored August 29th, 2014



Your Love


Your love out loves all earthly love.
Your love loves the unlovable.
Your love cries out to the sinner.
It’s done the unforgettable!

Words can not express your pure love.
Men can not comprehend your love,
Yet sinners can receive your love;
Comforted by your holy dove.

Your love shines of rarest beauty.
Your love was given at great cost.
Through Love, you shed your perfect blood;
And hung from that old rugged cross.

It was love that drove you to die;
and brought life to that cold dark grave.
Now, love is looking down from heaven;
Seeks the souls of the lost to save.

T’was awesome Love, wonderfully shown;
To helpless men lost in their sin.
No greater love, there’s ever been;
Than God came down to die for men.

Jesus Is The Greatest Valentine

Jesus is the greatest Valentine;
His love will never cease to be.

His love is bigger than the world;

I'm so glad that Jesus loves me.


Jesus is the greatest Valentine;
His heart is bigger than the sea.
And He always fills my heart with joy;
I'm so glad that Jesus loves me.

Yes He is the greatest valentine;
I will rejoice eternally.

 I will lift my voice with all my heart;

I'm so glad that Jesus loves me.

Sundrops In My Garden - Letter




 

Sundrops In My Garden - Letter

Susan Y Nikitenko

This is a letter I gave to people in our neighborhood along with a potted Sundrop plant in bloom and a copy of my poem: "Sundrops In My Garden." 


Dear Neighborhood Friends,

   
I would like to share a tidbit or two about my gardens.

  
I'm enjoying my garden this year. One of my favorite flowers is the fireworks primrose.

  It has a cluster of bright yellow flowers that explode mid spring to mid summer. They are shining in my garden right now. This beautiful flower has three different names, it's scientific name, which I know not, the fireworks primrose and the name I love to call them....Sundrops. The're like little smiles that say Jesus loves you. They brighten up your whole garden. Hopefully we are like sun drops shining out there in a mixed up world, in a lost world that needs to find the Way. The way to heaven, The way to forgiveness, the way to hope, the way to God Almighty, Jehovah, The God of heaven, creator God. That Way is Jesus, Jesus said about Himself, I am the Way, The Truth, The Life -no man cometh unto the Father but by me. Jesus is the light of this dark, dark world. Christians need to brighten every corner. I know I've failed in many ways along life's way , but I know where my desire lies and that is to shine for Him. I'm so glad Jesus is my hope and my life. Because He has forgiven me and given me a new name. I am His forever child, and you can be His child too. Let our desire be to shine in His amazing love, by following His plan set out in His Word.

  
I sure feel regret for all the times I've let my Jesus down, but this wonderful flower reminds me of my Savior. When the flower dies the leaves turn a beautiful red and this reminds me of His shed blood for all of mankind. He offers peace, pardon, forgiveness and a home in heaven for all who will believe. True belief causes action. If you thought the sky were falling your belief would move you to shelter. If you believed your child was in danger it would move you to act. If you believed in a dangerous unrepentant hell you would run to God for salvation. Then that belief would move you to live a life pleasing your Savoir.

  Another wonderful thing about this flower is that it comes back every year with more and more blooms. We need to tell others about Jesus and His precious love. We need to be multiplying the kingdom of heaven. Giving the Good news of Jesus Christ- The Story of His bloodshed for sinners and His resurrection.

  Just as my sundrops return every spring.. I know my Jesus will be returning very soon to take His children home. Will you be ready? 

  Be living out the purpose you were born to live, turn to Him with your heart and trust Him. Do things His way. Live your life, His way. Follow His plan. We are not promised tomorrow, this could be your last day, your last moment, turn to Him.


I Hope you enjoy your sundrops.

Love In Christ, Susan Nikitenko


John 3:16-18 says

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.


John 1: 1-9 Says

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

Just A Thought:


Jesus Loves You!

Amazing Grace Missions Gives Out Little Books With Yellow Smiley Faces On The Front - That Say:  Jesus Loves You.  They Have Been Giving Those Little Smiley Face Books To People For Years, Mostly To Children.   I Remember Getting One When I Was A Little Girl At The "State County Fair In W.Va.  When I Was Around Ten Years Old. I Never Forgot That Little Book. 



Sundrops In My Garden

(Also Known as Fireworks Primrose )
By: Susan Y Nikitenko
June 2010

Shining in my garden;
Like smiles everywhere.
Are Bright Yellow Sundrops;
Examples of God's care.


They brightly grace my garden;
They give my heart a lift.
Cause I know they're precious;
And given as a gift.


Jesus is the Son of God;
He is the Way, the light.
He is like a Sundrop;
That blossoms very bright


He gives the burdened joy;
He sets the captive free.
He shines into the heart;
and saves so willingly.


Won't you be a sundrop,
In life's garden, to grow?
Will you Shine for Jesus
In His love will you go ?


Will you tell the story
Of His blood shed for men?
Will you sacrifice your time
And give your all to Him?


When the sundrop is done;
and It's leaves turn blood red.
Please Remember dear friend;
What our Savior once said.


"It is finished", He cried ;
With His blood flowing free.
and His hands stretched out wide;
on that torturous tree.


He gave himself for you;
He gave himself for me.
He arose from the dead;
and won the victory.


Available to all;
A life beautifully new.
His hand is extended;
While He calls now to you.


While watching from heaven;
perhaps Angels display.
Heavenly Fireworks;
When one sinner is saved.


Will you trust Him today?
Will you cry out His name?
Will you bow to His will:
Or remain now, the same?


Won't you be a sundrop,
In life's garden, to grow?
Will you Shine for Jesus
In His love will you go ?


Will you tell the story
Of His blood shed for men ?
Will you sacrifice your time;
And give your all to Him?

One Day, That Day, Today


One Day, That Day, Today

Susan Y Nikitenko
January 23,  2012 

One day my sin became ;
A burden to me.
I wanted to be free;
 I grieved desperately.

One day, In tears  I cried;
"My God please help me.
Without you, I will die;
Living worthlessly."

One day, in His comfort;
I felt Him hug me.
At my lowest despair;
He said He loved me.

One day my heart was changed;
Like a new morning.
My goals were rearranged;
By Gods adorning.

One day I found New Life;
Like a flowing stream.
Found in God's gift alone;
His great love redeems.

One day, a new sunrise -
Happened in my soul.
The day I believed God;
His truth made me whole.

One day, I found new peace;
And a new future.
Because I have a home;
In Jesus that's sure.

One day, a new desire;
Filled my hearts burning.
To please God of heaven:
My greatest yearning.

But one day I failed Him;
I cried on the floor.
I heard a still small voice;
"Go and sin no more".

One day I understood;
What grace really meant.
God's love rescued me;
A mercy heaven sent.

One day, I'll dwell with Him;
In glory's bright land.
I'll gladly see Him;
Then kiss His scared hands.

That day, will be prefect;
I see it, in dream.
A beautiful greeting;
A heavenly scene.

Today, belongs to Him;
I belong to Him.
I am a child of God;
Loved and forgiven.

Stand Still


 

Stand Still!



Stand Still.

Oh, children of God.
See the work of His hands;
Amazing creations and lands.

Stand Still!

And know He is God.
Consider the heavens above.
In awe consider His love.

Stand Still!

Know you are heaven made.
Your hands, your eyes,
Your mind, your heart,
You, His miracle, human art.

Stand Still!

See how wonderful He is.
Perfect, Holy Lord;
Deliverer of the world.

Stand Still!

Worship and adore Him;
Our Redeemer, our Friend,
The Beginning, the End.

I now stand still.

I see you Lord.
I love you Lord.
I need you Lord.

In Worship;
I stand still.

Jesus Was Forsaken - The Valentine of Hope

 


Jesus Was Forsaken

The  Valentine of Hope
---
Jesus asked why on His darkest day.
He suffered with pain our sins to pay.
He was forsaken on Calvary;
So you and I could be ever free.

He was forsaken for you and me;
That murderous day on Calvary.
His children will not be forsaken;
For His blood was shed for men's  sin.

A love gesture written in His blood;
Jesus forsaken, because of love.
The greatest act of love ever sown.
The greatest act of mercy ever shown.

In letters of love it's been written.
He died so we could be forgiven.
For God so loved the world that He gave;
The only answer for men to be saved.

Jesus, a merciful valentine;
True love, none so precious, none so kind.
Such goodness there has never been;
See His heart, see His love, see Him?

Jesus, a perfect white rose of grace;
Defeated the power of the grave.
The  valentine of hope for the world;
Our victorious risen Lord.

Jesus asked why on His darkest day.
He suffered in grief our sins to pay.
He was forsaken on Calvary.
T'was true love given for you and me.
---------

Perhaps Jesus asked Why -
So We Would Ask Why?
Jesus was forsaken - 
So we would never be forsaken.


A mother could forsake her child, a husband could forsake his wife, a grown child could forsake his sickly parents, but God will not forsake his children.  Because Jesus took upon himself our sin.
Jesus was forsaken because of sin.  

This Is Real Love
Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Curves

New River Gorge Bridge Pictures, Images and Photos



Curves

By: Susan Y Nikitenko
January 16th,2012

I grew up in the hills of W.Va.  If you have ever visited W.Va. you know that it has very sharp winding roads.  Even though I grew up riding in a car going around those sharp curves,  I still become very tense when we drive home to visit my mother.  My mother lives on a hill that has some extreme curves that are very narrow.  It is quite frightening  because people who are used to these roads fly carelessly around the bends.  When driving around these curves my husband blows the horn for a  long time to let others know we are coming.  I close my eyes and slightly wine as we go around the  narrow bends that have no railings.  I do not feel comfortable with being blind or uncertain as to what is coming at me. 

Sometimes life is the same way.  We are going about living life as normal and all of sudden life throws us a curve.  You can't seem to avoid it, because there's no place to turn around.  We can't see around the corner and we become afraid.  We say in our hearts,
" Lord help me I'm afraid  I don't know what's going to hit me next." 

It's during these times fear wants to overcome our faith.  It's during these times we must read and recall the promises of God, keeping our armor intact.  God knows what's around the corner.  We need to be asking direction and guidance when it is not clear where we are going or what's around the bend. 


Prayer:


Lord Jesus, hold my hand as I go around the curves in life.  Help me to keep trusting you even though I can't see what's in front of me.   Help me make all the right decisions and keep me sane midst the confusion that life sometimes brings.


You are my shield and you are my light.  Praise you today and forever.

Ps 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

He'll Move Your Mountain


 

He'll Move Your Mountain


(song) By: Susan Y Nikitenko
April 12th, 2011
It's faith that moves mountains.
It's faith that will please;
Our Father in heaven;
Who witnesses these;

A child that will love Him;
Who prays ev'ry day.
A father, a mother;
Who teach God's true way.

A tongue that will speak truth;
A heart that is right;
A longing to serve Him;
With all of our might.

Faith is the victory;
The old Hymns proclaim.
Our God has moved mountains;
And He's still the same.

The God of the Bible;
Moves mountains today;
For those who will trust Him;
And humbly obey.

He will move your mountain.
He will part the sea.
He'll answer from heaven;
Providing your need.

He cares for His children;
And He hears their cry.
Our Father of mercy ;
No doubt, will supply.

So don't get discouraged;
And keep to the test.
Tell Jesus your problem;
And He'll do what is best.

“What Must One Do to Be Reborn?”


“What Must One Do to Be Reborn?”


While reaching out to win the lost;
  We reached out with the Word.
We gave the gospel here and there;
To some we seemed absurd.

A man stopped by upon a cane;
This man, He was not old.
He listened, hard to all my words;
The gospel to him told.

A man, he must be born again;
To enter heavens gate.
Repent my friend and turn to God;
Before it is too late.

His eyes, they looked straight into mine;
With seeking words, he asked.
“What must one do to be reborn?”
Stunned with his words, I gasped.

Oh, joyful day, a seeking heart;
Who truly wants to know.
This humble man cried out to God;
Christ washed him white as snow.

He said to me, I almost died;
A car wreck changed my life.
Within the wreckage my heart cried,
“My children and my wife!”

My sinful life flashed before me;
The fear I felt was true.
“Please Lord,” I cried, “Don’t let me die.”
“I’ll give my life to you.”

“Today is my new beginning,”
That’s what he said to me.
And off  He limped upon his cane;
Saved for eternity.
