Bless the Lord’s name forever

Sing praises for Holy deeds

His greatness stands infinite

Loving us like tender reeds

 

Witness our Lord’s mighty acts

Share with each generation

His greatness lauds His goodness

Building our firm foundation

 

Recall love works from His hands

Fueled by Grace’s steadfast love

His greatness flows with mercy

Protecting us from above

 

Call on the Father this day

Pray to Him on humble knees

His greatness lighting the way

Watching over all He sees

Some days when my writing journey takes me into something new and challenging, I feel a little bit like an innocent child, willing to plunge in without any worries.

Do you write a daily journal?  This inspiring thought comes from my journal, and much of what is written in my journal comes from reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts.  Thanks to many of you for adding so much to my journal.

Oswald Chambers Quote

We are not saved to be “channels only,” but to be sons and daughters of God.  We are not turned into spiritual mediums, but into spiritual messengers; the message must be part of ourselves.

From 2 Timothy 4:2:  “Proclaim the message; be persistent whether the time is favorable or unfavorable; convince, rebuke, and encourage, with the utmost patience in teaching.”

John Maxwell Quote

From Isaiah 32:8:  “But those who are noble plan noble things, and by noble things they stand.”

Seeking abundant life

Never arrives from man

All will thirst for much more

Accept God’s Holy plan

 

Our Lord’s invitation

Never hidden from us

Just step forward today

Follow God, always a plus

 

Tasting His bread of life

Never bitter to eat

Peace arrives with each day

Listen for its steady beat

 

Our Father’s always near

Never absent with love

Come, come worship the Lord

Read His Word, from above

 

Finding life’s one true joy

Never alone with Him

Invitation welcomed

Filling us to the brim

Feeling weary and lost

How can any prevail?

Desolate road ahead

Actions will surely fail

 

Lost in darkness of life

Our Father lights the way

Filled with His righteousness

God’s road map saves our day

 

Our Lord’s Word speaking truth

Daily meditation

Bible’s meanings ring clear

Leading to salvation

 

Study God’s Holy Word

Share its hope and Good News

Trusting each promise

His commands, we must choose

 

Inhale, breathe it all in

Fed by the “Bread of Life”

Quenched by “Living Water”

Transforming daily life

From the words of American-born missionary and Christian theologian, E. Stanley Jones:  “The Gospel is not so much a demand as it is an offer, an offer of new life to man by the grace of God.”

God will make obstacles serve His purpose.

From Matthew 8:23-27:  “And when He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him.  A windstorm arose on the sea, so great that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but He was asleep.  And they went and woke Him up, saying, ‘Lord, save us!  We are perishing!’ And He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid, you of little faith?’  Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a dead calm.  They were amazed, saying, ‘What sort of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?'”

The burdening of our heart to pray for ourselves or for others is a special demonstration of God’s love.

From John 16:13:  “When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own, but will speak whatever He hears, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.”
