He Woke Me

Woke up today to another Monday and could hear the rain as it fell upon my window sill. My first thought was ugh!! Monday and to make things worst rain.  Than I thought about it and realized I woke this morning! 

Yes I woke! Thanks to the grace of God my eyes opened to a new day.  

The rain? Well the rain I realized was symbolic of the Lord raining down his blessings upon me. Keeping me one of his children safe as I begin another week!  

Yes the Lord has allowed me to experience a new day and he woke me and for that I am truly blessed. 

Have a blessed week everyone!

Fellow Christians

Ponder this fellow Christians can we really say we are followers of Christ when:

We embrace the immorality of our so called leaders.

Promote racial intolerance.

Turn our backs to the atrocities happening to others simply because they were born in another part of the world.

Let the poor starve.

Let the sick suffer.

Teach our children hate and division instead of love and unity.

All in the name of our own so called “comfort” 

The answer should be crystal clear.

The answer is no we cannot.

To follow Christ is not simply to recite the scriptures but to open your heart and actively follow the teachings of the Lord, even if it causes us a little discomfort now and then.

Happy Saturday. Let us sing his praise.

Good Morning & Happy Saturday We have made it through another work week and we wake to another day because of His glory.

Take a moment to sing his praise and to pray for those who don’t believe or are simply lost. Pray that they too will find their way home. Because once they come home they they will always be welcomed with open arms as we are all because we are now and will forever be His Children and He is all forgiving.

The First, The Last, My Everything

With a nod to Barry White’s classic You’re The First, The Last, My Everything

You put it together, didn’t You?

You definitely put it together, didn’t you Lord?

Isn’t that nice?

I mean, when you really sit and think about it, isn’t it really, really nice?

Nobody but you and me

You’ve put it together, Lord

 

The first, my last, my everything

And the answer to everything

You’re my sun, my moon, my guiding star

All kinds of wonderful, that’s what you are

 

I know there’s only, only one like you

I know you can do all things

No purpose of yours can be thwarted

Lord, you’re all I’m living for

Your plans stand firm

Your love for your children endures forever

I’ll never abandon the works of your hand

You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

 

You allowed me to return home

You let me find you

You forgave all my sins

And in you I’ve found so many things

You’re my strongest defender; the one who saved me

My faith is so great I could only give you

I proclaim to all how great you are

You’re bring us all to a new day

 

I see so many way that I

Will love you till the day I pass out of death into eternal life

You’re all of our realities, yet some of us remain lost

But you still forgive them through Christ

You’re the first, the last, my everything

 

You and me, Lord

Just you and me

You are the first, the last, my everything

 

You stepped into my life And I’m oh, so happy

With a nod to Melba Moore’s classic you stepped into my life

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
Stepped into my life
Steeped into my life

Before you came my way
I had so much worry
Always thought it would never work out
Thought I was alone
That I wasn’t worthy
But then you came to me
Told me I was your child
And you would always love me
All I had to do is have my heart believe
If I wanted to come home I just need to confess
And I’ll be forgiven of any sin

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy

Others look at me and wonder what has happened
You gave me so much more than I deserved
Now I kneel before you and praise you every day
Cause I understand that you’re always watching and protecting me
And I believe that You will work out all my problems
Because I know with You all things are possible

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy

You can tell everybody – He’s the one

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

I believe in Him no matter what life may bring me
Praised him to all who hear my voice
Had my faith tested but never did I fold.

Well it ain’t that hard when you believe
Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I been through the worst but I still give my best
God stands with me through the storms
Then he works it out so I know I’m blessed.

Stand up now and face the sky
Don’t let your troubles consume you
It’s time to do what must be done, come home and praise him
For He is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with a skillful psalm.

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

He’s got all the answers to your questions
He has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
If we confession our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
For He is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know His name name trust in Him, for He has never forsaken those who seek Him.

He’s the one
Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is

6:00 a.m. and I know he will work it out

The alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. and as I open my eyes blessed to have another day on this earth I immediately smile armed with the knowledge that without Him I wouldn’t be alive.  I rub the remnants of sleep out of and raise my eyes to praise him for I understand I may not always be worthy but know that I am his child and He still loves me. Today like all days Satan will lurk in the shadows attempting to cast doubt on my faith through pain and angst. This I do not worry about because I understand that the Lord is the greater force. So I simply turn my troubles over to Him confident He will work them out.  Because I know it is true that to be without is not His will and there is a cattle on a thousand hill and they are all mine to claim in his holy name.  So I praise Him for what he has given me and for what he will give me as I open my soul to the blessing He will rain down on me.
