Good God

I am like an olive tree growing in the house of God; I trust in His constant love forever and ever. I will always thank you, God, for what you have done; in the presence of your people I will proclaim that you are good. Psalms 52 : 8 & 9

I want to run....

As a deer pants for water, so I pant for revival.
I am a youth, drained by constant life demands
Who desires rest 
Wisdom to know whats really important
Strength to accomplish what is necessary

I am one who waits on you, Lord
Renew my strength
Help me soar 
Aid me to walk and not faint
Run and not grow weary
Till your work through and in me is completed.

Many Thanks, Lord

I thank you Lord, for you see me. Day by day as I walk with you, I have come to know that you are hands-on in my life....that you see me, you feel me, you know my thoughts, my feelings and the reasons that form those thoughts and feelings.

I thank you Lord, that even though you are the supreme Judge, you show me mercy where I deserve punishment, you call me to yourself  and remind me that your love is constant.....your constant love for me esp. in times when am not at my best.....overwhelms me.

I thank you God, because you keep promises, no matter how long it takes, I know you keep your word.....and often keep it in the most mysterious, confounding....yet so fulfilling way - and often give more than you promised.

Lord, thank you for everything....and indeed everything.....sometime back, I thought I could repay your kindness....but now what you have given me, I cannot repay. I am forever indebted to you. Your love for me  consumes me. I have not always felt worthy of your love, because I have always been a person who feels that to receive something, I have to earn it. I fall seriously short... in earning your love, yet you give it day in, day out.....and in increasing measure...so I now accept your love, as your daughter and as your friend....my prayer is that my life would honor your love.

Lastly, I thank you that I prayed and shared my heart with you regarding Muthoni my friend who remains in captivity in the hands of warlords in Somali. You have seen and felt my bleeding heart....comforted me and gave me the assurance that she is under your care  and by that she is well.

Many Thanks Lord.

Oh! My God

My God is good. His goodness is so hard to express, explain.....I try to search for words, but none can contain what I feel.....

God's love is constant - at my best and at my worst, the scale remains the same and this humbles me so much.....what depth of love! 

God's comfort and peace while in trouble is unexplainable. The knowledge that even when things are so grim, He is still incharge, He reigns! - having this knowledge when in captivity is so redeeming, knowing that even in chains, I am free, for God reigns above all!

God's forgiveness and justice - that when I deserve punishment, your grace covers me, you condemn me not for my sin, but instead when I come to you in repentance, you forgive me and take away my guilt....Lord, I bow before you in humble adoration

I will tell about your strength on my blog, I will tell BOLDLY of your constant love. 
You have been a refuge for me....  A shelter in my time of trouble..
I praise you, my DEFENDER.

My refuge is GOD
the GOD who loves me.

I depend on GOD alone, I put my hope in Him, He alone protects and saves me....
He is my DEFENDER and I shall never be DEFEATED.

My SALVATION and HONOUR depends on GOD. He is my STRONG protector and shelter!

More than once, I have heard GOD say that POWER belongs to Him - and I BELIEVE Him.

Cross Roads

Sometimes, when I look back and think of all the
could-have-beens in my life,
I often wonder:
Did I make the right choice....
Did I miss a road sign....

Am I on the right track....

C R O S S R O A D S.....

They happen all the time,
Saying goodbye to some,
Choosing only one.
Letting go, holding on... settling for now,
But facing what must come....

Yes, in life we all reach a crossroad sometime.
We make painful decisions and take some risks
as we pursue our dreams.

But one should not stay at the CROSSROADS too long.

For even the birds have to leave their nests sometime
& learn how to fly.

Life's road is long & rough, and there are stretches
when one has to do it all alone.
And should you meet the cross at the road, be
consoled.

Yes, more often than not, the road less traveled
will surely bring you home.

Face the light and the shadow falls behind you.
Turn your back & the shadow stays in front of you.
Indeed, the truth hurts,
but it will surely set you free.

The bitter pangs of parting will give birth to
another moment called GROWING.
So grow on..... until it's time for you to move
on.... and face the crossroads again,
knowing that God loves you and is in control of
everything.

Be strong at the crossroads.
Embrace the CROSS at the ROAD.
The Lord is at the cross, at the road,
at all your CROSSROADS......


(Not mine - a friend sent it to me, and it encouraged me so!)

Finding Rest

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honor depend on God
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
according to what they have done.”

Search Me.

You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue, you, LORD, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you. If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty! They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. Do I not hate those who hate you, LORD, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you? I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalms 139
