Solid, True, Eternal

Are you looking for something that never changes?

Are you yearning for safety and stability?

Are you afraid of death and the unknown future?

Are you desperate for meaning and purpose for your life?

There is one answer alone that answers all of those questions….

The Glorious, True, Righteous, Risen, Eternal God, Prince of Peace, the Solid Rock

The Lord Jesus Christ who died for my sins and for yours, who rose again on the third day, who lives eternally, and who promises the same eternal beautiful life to all who believe in His Name.

Resurrection Sunday is every day….He lives! Praise God for the solid rock and anchor that holds us and never lets go.

I may not know you personally, but Jesus does. He knows everything about you, and He loves you so much. Please open the door of your heart to Him. He wants to save you and give you peace that you have never known before in your life.

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly rest on Jesus’ name
On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

When Darkness veils His lovely face
I rest in his unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

On Christ the solid rock i stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

– Edward Mote, 1834, “On Christ the solid rock I stand”

Blessings and love to you, Lisa

Thank You

When I knew nothing of You, You knew all about me

When I was lost in the darkness, You were the Light that kept me safe

When I was drowning in guilt, You kept me afloat

When I reached out to You, You heard and answered me

You hung on a cross to pay for all the bad I have done

Even though I was blind to it for so long

But thank You, thank You, thank You.

You are Lord of all, You are King of the universe, You are Everything.

Thank You, Jesus.

Death is no more, You have conquered the grave

For all who believe in You, You made the way

To eternal life, to peace, to joy

You rose after three, You’re alive evermore

You are God, You are Lord, You are King

Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Jesus.

Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire

“We are always either drawing nearer to God or falling away. There is no holding pattern.”

“I discovered an astonishing truth: God is attracted to weakness. He can’t resist those who humbly and honestly admit how desperately they need him.”

Both of the above quotes are from Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, a wonderful book written in 1997 by Jim Cymbala. I heartily recommend reading this accounting of what the Lord is doing at Brooklyn Tabernacle Church. It is energizing, convicting, and is exactly what I needed to read.

We all want change. We look around at the state of the world, of people’s souls, and feel at a loss. God and God alone brings real change. And real prayer and humility and true love to those who are desperately hurting is the way that people see that Jesus Christ is real and alive and that He loves them without measure.

“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” – 2 Chronicles 16:9

Praying with you…..let’s pray and keep praying and then pray some more. Pray continually.

Lord, we humble ourselves before you. Forgive us. Cleanse us. Make us like Your Son through Your Holy Spirit. Help us to love, love without limit like You. Fill us with Your Spirit, for Your Glory, for this time.

Love, Lisa

A Blessing for St. Patrick’s Day

May you always know a love that shares

Their time, their comfort, their life and cares

Like someone who gave up his worldly ease

To return to a land of former captivity

To share the Love that knows no end

To set you free from guilt and shame

Patrick came back to Ireland so long ago

Out of love and calling did he go

E’en though he faced his painful past

No pain on earth could stop his task

And so today, my wish for you

To know the Christ that so loves you.

And just as St. Patrick once declared,

“The Lord is greater than all: I have said enough.”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
