It's About A Miracle



It's About A Miracle

What makes Easter special? A lot a people need to know;
It's about a miracle,  about life, about victory.
Easter is a celebration of the Resurrection;
Jesus is alive and gives life to those to whom believe.

He was put to death upon the old rugged cross of shame.
He hung from the nails, had to lift His body for each breath.
Blood streamed from His thorny crown, gushed from  His side to the ground;
There was only one way for our redemption, through His death.

But rejoice evermore, He arose, He lives , He shall reign.
The stone was rolled away, that shout hallelujah day.
Praise His name, praise His name, Jesus lives now forevermore;
In both our heart and heavenly places we will dwell one day.

Jesus  is the light of life,  He is the Resurrection;
He's the Shepherd of our heart, He leads us in paths true.
Just as Easter comes alive in spring, we see it in ev'rything;
When we believe in  the Resurrection , all thing become new.

Chorus:
It's about a miracle, the miracle of grace, our sins in Him erased.
It's about  love, It's about life, A new life found in Christ.
The Resurrection is the victory,  salvation for all who believe.
A new heart, a new direction, a new birth, a resurrection.

It's about a miracle, the miracle of grace.

Pray Today





Pray Today

Let us a pray today for President Trump and also our armed forces as they endeavor to deliver a hurting people.  Our President has had to make a very hard decision.  It is our duty as American citizen to stand up for those that cannot protect themselves.  I'm reminded today of the millions and millions of Jewish, Ukrainian and Eastern European  peoples that were taken by force into the slave labor camps during World War II.  Many of them were very young, I think of my husband's mother who was taken unwillingly from her family at around 13 years of age. 

Millions and millions of people died in the Nazi camps, murdered mercilessly.  Gassed in masses and their bodies thrown together into piles upon piles.  There had to be crying out to God for deliverance from a hell on earth.  They had to watch the Nazi soldiers kill family members and friends.  This is just a small, small corner of the horrific crimes of Nazi terrorism.

I remember my husband's mother told of the day she saw Americans coming into the camp where she was.  She literally saw freedom walking her way.   She was a young adult by the time the GI's came into the camp.  Thousands or more were delivered with God's help.  Many Ukrainians were brought to America where they found freedom.  My husband was born here, in America, as the youngest child.  He would not exist  today if it weren't for the compassion of America.  My husband would not be my husband and my children would not be my children.  We would not exist as a family.   

Sometimes we have to do hard things for the sake of others.  It is our duty to protect innocent people who are helpless to help themselves. 
Nobody likes war and it is a very scary thing, but sometimes what is right to do, requires sacrifice.  We know that President Trump does not want war, but when innocent people are being  helplessly killed, duty demands action. 

I do not pretend to be a scholar on the matters of war, but  I do understand the heart behind the decision.   Pray today that it will not be necessary for future action.  Pray that our warning as Americans, will be heard and heeded by the Syrian government.

Woman At The Well



Woman At The Well


God tells us to be gentle and tenderhearted. When the woman was at the well Jesus treated her with kindness and wisdom, but still said what He needed to say. He could of, smashed her with words of condemnation, but instead, he reasoned with her in His compassion and gentleness. She would not have listened otherwise because she already knew she was nothing. It does matter how you say things. Words should have a heart of love behind them. Some people can not be won unless they know you love them.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, I Praise the Lord, I'm His"



Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  I Praise the Lord, I'm His"


He died and arose and is coming again, He died and arose and he's coming again,  Hallelujah,  I Praise the Lord, I'm His.
He came to save us, and to forgive us, to wash us from our sins.
All I had to do was believe, trust in what he did for me at Calvary.
He came into my seeking heart,  my heart began to change upon that day.

Death could not prevail, He saves lost people from hell;
The devils tremble at the speaking of His name.
 Belief in Jesus releases the captives from sins chains.
Victory came all because of this...What He came to do for all of His.

His love made a way,  on that great Resurrection day.
When God, Emanuel,  God's only Son, won:
For all who will believe, salvation's victory.
He died and arose and is coming again, He died and arose and he's coming again, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  I Praise the Lord, I'm His.

He died and arose and is coming again, He died and arose and he's coming again, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  I Praise the Lord, I'm His.
He came to save us, and to forgive us, to wash us from our sins.
All I had to do was believe, trust in what he did for me at Calvary.
He came into my seeking heart,  my heart began to change upon that day.

He died and arose and is coming again, He died and arose and he's coming again, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  I Praise the Lord, I'm His.

The Goodnight Kiss

Family Affection

The Goodnight Kiss

When my children were little I tucked them into bed every night.  When they got older they didn't want to go to bed, so I called for them to come kiss my husband and myself goodnight.  I refused to go to bed without that contact between us.  It wasn't for myself,  it for us as a family.  If one of us would not live till morning we would know the last thing said before bed was, I love you.  We are not promised tomorrow.  It wasn't out of a personal need to hear I love you or be shown affection, though at times we all need to hear those things, but rather an assurance that my children were taught to honor their parents as the bible teaches. My hopes as a mom was to leave a good memory before closing our eyes at night and making sure everything was alright. 

They would have friends over and we let them stay up a bit longer to visit with them, before bed.  I guess it was slightly embarrassing for them to hear a call from the other room, to have them come and kiss their mom and dad goodnight.  They were becoming too old to tuck in, but not too old to have an exchange of family affection before bed, a reminder that they are loved and forgiven of any negativity of the day.  Sometimes children will harbor resentment towards their parents.  The goodnight kiss is a time set aside before bed to say I'm sorry and I love you, to have a right heart before our eyes close at night.

 I still give my kids hugs and kisses even though they are married.  They are still my kids and they will always be my kids.  I just have two more, the ones they married.

Love Can Last Forever



Love Can Last Forever

Love can last forever;
between two friends.
Who stand strong together;
until the end.

Standing  tall, through it all;
for what is right.
Man and wife holding hands;
Treasuring life.
-------
Love holds on through the storms;
Love holds on through the worst.
Love will keep on loving;
Keep on loving, keep on loving, keep on loving.
------
Through the good and the bad;
I know it's true.
Love can last forever;
Between both me and you.

Jesus our foundation;
On which we live.
Gives us joy in our hearts;
Strength to forgive.
------
Love can last forever;
between two friends.
Who stand strong together;
until the end.

Love holds on through the storms;
Love holds on through the worst.
Love will keep on loving;
Keep on loving, keep on loving, keep on loving.

Upon A Pile




Upon A Pile

Heaven and earth will pass away;
God will judge this earth one day.
He sees the blood of innocent ones;
And with Him it's not Okay.

Each star up in the galaxies;
All the sand within the restless seas;
Each hair that grows upon our heads.
And ev'ry baby that is conceived.

He keeps in mind and keeps account;
And he gives each one their own name.
How loveless to kill a tiny babe;
To smile a win? Oh what a shame.

Oh will they laugh? will they cheer hurray?
When another little life is gone?
God hates the hands  that shed innocent blood;
How long can we let this crime go on?

Little baby, little life, Oh how sweet;
But no one loved you, nor did care.
Cast you aside, without one tear.
Upon a pile of bodies bare.

But God came down and held you near;
With love carried you to heaven's shore.
Though this world tossed you far away.
God's love will hold you forevermore.

God loves the unloved of this world.
An infant babe, thrown upon a pile.
No fear of God, His lightning rod.
God will stand up for every child.

An Unusual Dream I Had


An Unusual Dream I Had

I dreamed something unusual a couple of nights ago.  It helped me in a very important decision. 
I felt as though God was telling me not to be afraid.

I dreamed I had to walk through all kinds of snakes, but they could not bite me.  I dreamed I walked past many dogs that were eating dead animals everywhere, but they could not bite me, I dreamed I found a rope and swung from the rope between two huge boulders and while swinging down between them, there were many spiders and webs.  The spiders could not bite me, nor did the webs hold me and I brushed them from my clothing. 

I know that we are not supposed to trust in dreams, but it really did make me feel confident
that God was going to be with me.  God's word already tells us to be of good courage...

Sometimes in life, we go through difficult things and it's through these things our faith is tested,  It is these times we may become fearful, but faith will help us to continue and trust in God's power and provision. 

Joshua  10:25 And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage.

My God's Love Was There






My God's Love Was There

His love lifted me;
From the sinking sands of sin.
I cried for His help;
I looked for a helping friend.

But none heard my cry;
Cared not if I lived or died.
There I took His hand;
Then He pulled me to His side.

His rescuing love;
Pulled me from the fire;
From the sinking mire;
God became my desire.

He led me, through truth;
His love healed my broken heart.
When this world of grief;
Wanted to tear my life apart.

But God's love was there;
In my grief, In my despair,
Just when I thought no one cared;
My God's love was there.

In the darkest night;
Where there was no shining light.
I'm so glad my God;
Pulled me from the devil's snare.

But God's love was there;
In my grief, In my despair.
There was His Hand.
God became my desire.

A Song About Salvation

January 14th, 2017


Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.



Mathew 14:29 - 33
And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
 Then they that were in the ship came and worshiped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

Here Are Thoughts About Two Views: Salvation

Here Are Thoughts About Two Views:  Salvation


If someone were to ask me "How do people acquire salvation?," It would not be by living good enough.  People who never enter His rest, will do many good works, to earn their way to heaven.  They still will never live good enough. Though this is commendable, from a human standpoint. 

God's word tells us, "Our righteousness is like filthy rags".
That's why God did everything for us at Calvary.  We simply need to trust that His love led Him to take care of it for us.  God sent his Son out of His great love.  He paid the price for us and that made all those that trust, believing upon Christ, good enough.  We can rest in knowing
that we are not good enough and will never be good enough, to make it into heaven on our own.
It's all about what Christ did at his death and at his resurrection.  He did the work required for salvation.  We never could pay our sin debt by ourselves. He paid our debt.  It was paid in full. 
He justified us through faith by "His work" alone. He willingly laid down his life for us.

It only takes one sin.... No one can live that kind of perfect life.  The bible says, If we break one of the commandments, in one point, then we are guilty of breaking all.  That sin could even seem very small to us, but sin is sin.  We are all guilty until Christ declares us innocent through His shed blood, in that we become genuine born again believers.  Then the gift of salvation is applied base upon those terms.

I'm so glad Christ did not leave salvation up to my good works, though I do try to please Him with my life.  When he sees me, He sees someone His Son died for and accepted the gift of His salvation.  Then at the time of salvation, I became a Child of God, as all who will trust Him.  Our works will prove our faith, but our works will not save us.  All the credit will go to Christ for our salvation.  That's called giving Him glory and not our own works. 

Father God,  There are some people who think they could never be saved because of some of the things they've done in life.  I think of Paul who actually persecuted and killed Christians, or the Woman at the well who had seven husbands, or the woman caught in adultery.   All of these people found your mercy and were saved at the moment of belief and trusted in you. I pray Lord you'll speak to hearts today and anyone wanting to accept your gift will call upon your name right now and receive you into their heart and life.

 The people from scriptures, I mentioned, They repented and turned to Christ for salvation.  He did not reject them but made them part of the family of God.  They turned from one life to a life living for God through Jesus Christ our Lord. You can do that too.

When God says something, He never lies.

 Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Let Our Hearts Be Right


Let Our Hearts Be Right

Let our hearts be right,
That in this world we might,
Make a difference;
In somebody's life.

Let our hearts be right,
That by grace we might;
Be the difference;
That brings somebody life.

Devotion and love;
For our God above.
Resistant of sin;
Surrendered to Him.

May our lips reply;
With joy from on high.
That Jesus still lives;
Still loves and forgives.

May amazing grace;
Keep us in God's ways.
Drawing close to Him
In rev'rence and praise.

Let our hearts be right,
As we fight the fight;
That makes a difference;
In somebody's life.

Make This A Diff'rence Year - Text



 Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
(KJV)

Make This A Diff'rence Year

I just want to say,
With love and with thought;
Have a happy New Year.

May God's blessings rest;
Upon you my friends.
That is my heartfelt prayer.

May you grow closer,
May you grow stronger;
In Jesus Christ our Lord.

May you be better:
And never be bitter;
In this troublesome world.

There are many things;
That could bring us down,
Cause us to wear a frown.

May we grow wiser;
Be happy, be bold;
In joy, never act old.

Everything we do,
Let us please the Lord:
Make this a diff'rence year.

May God's blessings rest;
Upon you my friends.
That is my heartfelt prayer.
-------

I just want to say,
With love and with thought;
Have a happy and blest New Year.
