Embracing His Grace

Have you ever felt this way
Like your heart is lead astray

Have you ever felt so empty yet so full at the same time
Fear, stress, anger, selfishness having gotten the better of me and mine

Have you ever had to step out and start again
when life throws a curve, a dead drop, a spin

Have you ever felt completely dry
like a dessert without moisture left to die

There is a message you need to hear
there is only one that dries every tear

There is only one who really can relate
He has felt it all, your every state

He lived his life fighting off both physical and spiritual storms of raging wind and rain
Dying on a cross for us was not enough, he chose to rise up and with us remain

For even though he ascended into heaven his spirit is always there
It is beside us, beneath us, with in us, living hope available everywhere

It does not matter who we are, what we do, how deep a pit we have buried ourselves in
He is still God and our Holy loving father, who over came death to conquer all our sin

So my dear one how ever you feel, how ever awful things around you appear
there is hope, there is peace, there is joy and victory to be found instead of fear

There is healing, there is truth, there is unconditional love, there is grace
Embrace your Jesus as he holds tight to you, hear his voice, see his face

I just wanted to dedicate my page today to my friend Debbie whom right now is the hands and feet of Jesus to orphans in Africa. She is a nurse and loves her Big Daddy J.C. You can bet Satan would like to get her down and keep her from doing what she does best, Love on others! So I call out to those of you that read my Blog to pray for Debbie and other missionaries like her. Pray for a daily filling of HIM! Pray for her to witness victory everyday over satans plan to destroy the little guys she holds, tickles and ministers to. Pray for her finances to not be a burden and for worries to flee as God is ever present with her during her six month time away from home.

Ephesians 6:18
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.\

Lord help us all be like Debbie. Let us be your hands and feet whether our mission field is in Africa or right in our own back yard having a picnic with the neighbors. Praise you for you are good to us! Amen

I call out "Sanctuary!"

Psalm 26:8 I love your sanctuary, Lord,
the place where your glorious presence dwells.

Psalms 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
The world and all its people belong to him.

Psalm 20:1-2, 4-5 In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry.
May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you...
May he grant your heart’s desires and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory and raise a victory banner in the name of our God.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.

Psalm 63:1-3
O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.

May today be a day we call out "sanctuary sanctuary" as in the days of old. Where one would enter a church and by law be safe from harm. May we be able to cry out and feel His embrace protecting us from harm. May we know the power and security of his strong arms surrounding us. May we know joy in His presence to praise Him and feel the love pouring out upon us from our big daddy J.C. May this day be lived in His sanctuary as we trust in Him and rely on His foot hold beneath our feet. Praise God for this place of rest, peace, renewing, and joy! Thank You God for your sanctuary is a real place we can dwell and remain in you and you in us. For where ever we are there you be:)

amen Jesus name be Praised!
