A Hymn of Praise

I’m hanging on to your grace that sustains me
I’m holding on to your mercy that brings life
I’m claiming every promise that you gave me
That you gave me through your perfect sacrifice.
 
And I know just how far I’ve fallen
I know the price you’ve had to pay
And I’m forever ever thankful
So come, my Lord, and have your way
 
I’m hanging on to your grace that sustains me
I’m holding on to your mercy that brings life
I’m claiming every promise that you gave me
That you gave me through your perfect sacrifice.
 
So, Lord I set my life before you
My life’s no longer mine but yours
Take me, break me, mold me, change me
To be more like you my Lord.
 
I’m hanging on to your grace that sustains me
I’m holding on to your mercy that brings life
I’m claiming every promise that you gave me
That you gave me through your perfect sacrifice.

Here on Earth

Everything that we give to God He can use for His glory. Be it time, money, our homes, skills, our minds or whatever – all can be used by God to build His heavenly kingdom here on earth.

Give Me

Lord, give me…
Compassion for all those who hurt
Love for the needy
Grace for the unlovely
Patience for the difficult
Wisdom for the confused
Healing for the broken
Kindness for the desperate
Time for the lonely
Hope for the lost
Sensitivity for the frightened
Peace for the fearful
Life for the dying
Through you my God. Amen.

In Company

The Christian journey is a journey in company. God the Holy Spirit walks alongside us and God has placed us in families, friendship groups and churches. We are there for one another, to encourage, build up and guide. Will you humble yourself and rely on those God has put around you? Will you also be there for them?

Everything

If we are only prepared to surrender part of our life to God we miss out on God working in our whole life. It is usually the area that we fail to surrender that needs God’s touch the most. Don’t hold anything back – God desires our all and we need everything that God has to offer.

Focussed

O Lord, keep me focused on you today. Keep my mind far from that which is unwise for me to think about. Help me to keep every thought captive to you and aid me to set my mind on all that is peaceable, lovely, pure and good. In your Holy Name I pray. Amen

True Freedom

There is true freedom for people who place their trust in God. When we trust Him our fears fade and our faith grows. When we truly trust God He will NEVER let us down.

Back to Him

Hope that never let’s you down
Peace that never fails
Heaven brought to earth surrounds
Purchased with those piercing nails
Life in its fullness for today
A freedom from all sin
Restoration done in God’s own way
To draw us back to Him.

Your Whole Heart

When God has your whole heart it begins to beat as His heart does. You begin to see things in the way God does. You begin to love as He loves and have compassion as He has compassion. When God has your heart you become more like Him. When you give God your whole heart He lovingly mends it and sets its rhythm. God becomes your pace-maker. Are you brave enough to give God your whole heart?

A Clean Sheet

It’s never too late to start the rest of your life over again. God is the God of second chances – always more willing to forgive than we are willing to ask for forgiveness. He loves to give us a clean sheet – even though He knows full well that we’ll mess it up all over again!!
