At the beginning
We need You

We need You
Every moment
Every second
Every minute
Every hour
Every day
We need You

Healing Grace

This morning, I made a cup of tea. As the tea bag sat in the hot water, water was seeping through the cup. On a closer look, I did not see any crack on the cup. I threw the cup away.
Sometimes we may look alright on the outside but actually we are all broken up on the inside. The turmoil, anguish, sorrow and pain have numbed our senses. We are at the verge of a collapse. We can no longer function though we continue to go about with our daily activities.
The Lord beckons us to enter into His healing presence. His hand is never to short to touch us. He waits for us with open arms. He speaks hope and restoration to all who choose to lean on Him. He has never failed us. He will never leave us alone to suffer in silence. He is a miracle working God. He turns our broken lives around for His glory. He breathes health, healing and wholeness into our mind, soul and body.

Happy Birthday, Monte!

Today is Monte's birthday.  Happy birthday, Monte! 🎂🎂🎂 God has blessed me with a loving and wonderful husband.  I am blessed by his love, concern, care, support and encouragement.  We have shared the best years of our lives together.  God blows our minds and helps us to see that there is absolutely nothing He cannot do.  Our many challenges and mountains before us pale in comparison to the Lord's amazing power.  He speaks strength and grace and empowers us to soldier on.  We stand amazed at our majestic, glorious, mighty and wonderful God; knowing that what is most important is to see His will and work in us.  We magnify the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

It is Enough

It is enough
Just to know You are with us
It is enough
Just to be in Your presence
It is enough
Just to taste Your goodness
It is enough
Just to know Your mercy
It is enough
Just to touch the hem of Your garment
It is enough
You are more than enough
You are all
We ever needed

Of Christ 
Comes bursting
Through us
When You dispel
All darkness
Doom
And deadness

Eternity

It is not the glitter
Not the gold
Not the silver
Not the sapphire
It is not prestige
Not man's applause
Not our accolades
Not our talents
Not our skills

What matters most
Is Your presence
Salvation
Your hand of love
Your favour
The touch of Your grace
The life and light of Christ
The gifts of the Spirit
The fullness of Your Spirit
Your abiding presence
Your unending hope
Eternity
Your purposes
And plans
Things that 
Moth and rust 
Cannot destroy

Set our hearts
On pilgrimage
Flood us with Your presence
Precious
Pure
Holy

Seal our hearts 
For the courts above
Set our hearts ablaze
Set us apart for You
And You alone

Vulnerable

Some months ago, I had a severe left knee injury.  The injury lingered for weeks on end.  I had difficulty bending my left knee.

One day, I was in the bathroom at home.  I attempted to try to squat and bend my knees.  In my horror, I could not get back up.  I called out to Monte.  He came to my rescue.

I have since recovered from my knee injury but the incident was a lesson on vulnerability.

In our despair and helpless state, God comes bursting through.  He speaks love, strength and hope to us.  He gives us courage to persevere, He gives us hope to believe.  God speaks through our hardships, crises and brokenness.  Just when we feel that we are at the edge of the cliff, the Lord breaks through our defenses.  He reminds us that He is in control.  He cares deeply for us and loves us.  He pours His grace on us.  When we are vulnerable, He protects and covers us with His love.  All who call on His name will receive help and deliverance.  Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised.

Mighty God

We rise with hope
We soar like the eagles
We overcome by Your grace
We call on You
Mighty God
Mighty to save
Mighty to deliver
Mighty to restore
For You are our defender
You are our fortress
You are our tower
Majestic
Glorious
Supreme
Sovereign
God and King

Two is Better than One

Monte and I were married in March 1999.  I am so blessed to share all these years with Monte. He loves, encourages, supports and cares for me deeply.  Love gets richer when we allow the Lord to nurture and bless our marriage.  Two is better than one.  I love Monte with all of my heart.

God has brought us to the mountain tops and the deepest valleys.  Deep sorrow mingled with great joy.  Breakthroughs mingled with set backs.  Failures mingled with success.  Release mingled with pain.  

All we see is the faithfulness of the Lord.  We see miracles.  We feel His leading and guidance.  We see His hand of love.  All that matters is to see His hand at work in our life.  The many challenges propel us to lean on the Lord more than before.  We have unanswered questions and situations that are tough; we have things that we are still grappling.  We allow God to speak into our life and circumstances.  We embrace the loving purposes of God. We will not go anywhere He is not leading us.  He is our rock, our fortress and our only hope.
