A beautiful Christmas song "Messiah" by Francesca Battistelli.

"Messiah"

Long awaited precious promise
Son of God and son of man
Heaven's glory in a manger
Has come to us in Bethlehem

Messiah
Messiah
Baby born to save us all
Messiah
Messiah
On our knees we fall

All we longed for, all we needed
Shining in this child's eyes
Hope forever, death defeated
Because of this one holy night

Messiah
Messiah
Baby born to save us all
Messiah
Messiah
On our knees we fall

O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
Christ the Lord

Long awaited precious promise
Coming back again

Messiah
Messiah
Baby born to save us all
Messiah
Messiah
On our knees we fall
On our knees we fall

"Somewhere In Your Silent Night" is from Casting Crowns's new album - "It's Finally Christmas".
The message of this song is beautiful: 
..."He knows your hurt
He knows your name
And you're the very reason that He came...
Love will find you..."


"Somewhere In Your Silent Night"

All is calm and all is bright
Everywhere but in your heart tonight
They're singing carols of joy and peace
But you feel too far gone and too far out of reach

Somewhere in your silent night
Heaven hears the song your broken heart has cried
Hope is here, just lift your head
For love has come to find you
Somewhere in your silent night

From heaven's height to manger low
There is no distance the Prince of Peace won't go
From manger low to Calvary's hill
When your pain runs deep
His love runs deeper still
He has always loved you, child
And He always will

Somewhere in your silent night
Heaven hears the song your broken heart has cried
Hope is here, just lift your head
For love has come to find you
Somewhere in your silent night

Lift your head
Lift your heart
Emmanuel will meet you where you are
He knows your hurt
He knows your name
And you're the very reason that He came

Somewhere in your silent night
Heaven hears the song your broken heart has cried
Hope is here, just lift your head
For love has come to find you
Somewhere in your silent night

Love will find you
Love will find you
Love will find you 
-Casting Crowns








 

This quote is famous from A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh book -
but it's a great reminder today for you and for me! 
Especially if we remember who we are in Christ and that it's HE who gives us strength every day!

He gives strength to those who are tired
    and more power to those who are weak.
-Isaiah 40:29 

Have a blessed week! 

 
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
-James 4:8

Advent begins today:
it is  an opportunity for us to remember the moment
 God came down in the person of his Son to reveal himself...
It prepares us for the Christmas...
Take time time to reflect this season the gift of Immanuel,
 “God with us.” 
Draw close to God and He will draw close to you!
 
Have a blessed Advent season! 
 





"Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know."
-Jeremiah 33:2 
 
"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, 
and to him who knocks it will be opened."
-Matthew 7:8

Keep your eyes on God, and thank Him for the victory!  
-James 1:12

"I'm fully known and loved by You
You won't let go no matter what I do..."

Lovely lyrics and lovely song!

Known
[Verse 1]
It's so unusual it's frightening
You see right through the mess inside me
And you call me out to pull me in
You tell me I can start again
And I don't need to keep on hiding

[Chorus]
I'm fully known and loved by You
You won't let go no matter what I do
And it's not one or the other
It's hard truth and ridiculous grace
To be known fully known and loved by You
I'm fully known and loved by You

[Verse 2]
It's so like You to keep pursuing
It's so like me to go astray
But You guard my heart with Your truth
A kind of love that's bullet proof
And I surrender to Your kindness

[Chorus]
I'm fully known and loved by You
You won't let go no matter what I do
And it's not one or the other
It's hard truth and ridiculous grace
To be known fully known and loved by You
I'm fully known and loved by You

-Tauren Wells
 
 
With God's help we will do mighty things! 
-Psalm 60:12

Have a blessed week! 

 
Did you know that scientific research reveals that being consistently grateful can have a positive effect on your health? Or did you know that practicing gratitude causes real changes in your brain that enhance brain function and make you feel better?
The Bible says in Ephesians 5:20:

Give thanks for everything to God 
the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 

A grateful heart sees each day as a gift! 

If gratitude is an antidote for anxiety…
and giving thanks is a real cure for stress —
why relegate thanksgiving to a holiday when 
giving thanks can revolutionize our whole lives?
-Ann Voskamp 

Your attitude really matters:
"The grateful heart is like a magnet sweeping over the day, collecting reasons for gratitude."
-Max Lucado

So let's be thankful -not only today on Thanksgiving day, but every day!
God bless you!




I love how the Message translation says it:
Enter with the password: "thank you".

In the other words :
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
-Psalm 100:4 NIV 

This is really a good reminder for us; to remember the right passwords which is simply THANK YOU...because praise precedes the victory. 
So THANK HIM. WORSHIP HIM.NOW...AND ALL DAY LONG!
THANK GOD
FOR ALL HE HAS DONE,  FOR ALL HE IS DOING NOW AND
FOR ALL HE WILL DO!

 
"Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them." 
-Mark 11:23 
 
Don't talk about your mountain; talk to it! 
Don't tell the world how big your problems are; tell them how big your God is!
 Have a blessed week!
Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.  
-Psalm 136:26
 ♥
...for your Father knows exactly what you need 
even before you ask him!
-Matthew 6:8 

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and steadfast.
-Hebrews 6:19 
 
GOD LOVES YOU!

 
"Then I get lost in Your eyes and find then clarity to life!"

In Your Eyes
Skylines and crowded streets
Calling my attention
The limelight and empty dreams
Grieving my affections
But there is a perfect Voice
Waiting above the noise
Jesus my only choice
When all the lights are screaming
Then I
I get lost in Your eyes
And find the clarity to life
The world when all the colors rage
But I'm not gonna look away, no
I get lost in Your eyes
I've read all the glossy guides
To living in contentment
I've heard all the pretty lies
And all of them are vacant
But You are a love unique
My heart, my identity
Jesus you're all I need
And see the rest is nothing
Then I
I get lost in Your eyes
And find the clarity to life
The world when all the colors rage
But I'm not gonna look away, no
I get lost in Your eyes
Then I
I get lost in Your eyes
And find the clarity to life
The world when all the colors rage
But I'm not gonna look away, no
I get lost in Your eyes

”So Will I“ is written by Hillsong United, but this time the song is performed by GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter and producer Tori Kelly as she recorded the song for the YouVersion along  an exclusive 4-day YouVersion Bible Plan called “A Heart of Worship.”

So Will I (100 Billion X)
VERSE 1
God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light
CHORUS 1
And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapour of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I
VERSE 2
God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice
CHORUS 2
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I
BRIDGE
If the stars were made to worship so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times
VERSE 3
God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die
CHORUS 3
And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender so will I
I can see Your heart
Eight billion different ways
Every precious one
A child You died to save
If You gave Your life to love them so will I
TAG
Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind


Whoever does not love does not know God, 
because God is love.
-1 John 4:8
 
God's word is food for our souls! 
Memorize it. Confess it. 
Let the words of the Bible enter into your mind and descend into your heart... 
And let God's word transform your whole being! 
Have a blessed day! 
 
Have a blessed week! 
We are healed because of his wounds.
-Isaiah 53:5 

Are we enough?
 "The reason is that as long as we believe we're not enough, we also believe we have to make up for it. So instead of running to Jesus, we flee to self-improvement, trying harder, exhausting ourselves. But there is a better way. Receiving. Letting God fill up our "not enough" with his infinite love, grace, and strength until we're overflowing." 
-Holly Gerth 

 So remember : YOU ARE ENOUGH AND YOU HAVE ALL YOU NEED IN JESUS CHRIST!
Beautiful song of God's love for us:
"Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God..."

 RECKLESS LOVE
[Verse 1]
Before I spoke a word
You were singing over me
You have been so, so
Good to me
Before I took a breath
You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so
Kind to me

[Chorus]
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the nighty-nine
I couldn't earn it
I don't deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

[Verse 2]
When I was your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so
Good to me
When I felt no worth
You paid it all for me
You have been so, so
Kind to me

[Chorus]
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn't earn it
I don't deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

[Bridge]
There's no shadow You won't light up
Mountain You won't climb up
Coming after me
There's no wall You won't kick down
No lie You won't tear down
Coming after me

[Chorus]
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn't earn it
I don't deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
-Bethel Music

These days I was reading the devotional Even Now from Life.Church Worship on YouVersion and of course I was listening to the song as well and today I want to share the song with you. Lovely and powerful lyrics: My hope is found in You... Fill every space that's in between with Your promise... You are the strength that carries me... 
Listen to this song, worship God and be blessed!

Even Now

[Verse 1]
Open my eyes so I can see
Steady my heart so I can sing of Your praises
You are the only one I need
You are enough for, You are enough for me

[Chorus]
And even now, I see the clouds
A silver lining's breaking
My hope is found in You
My one defense, my confidence
The anchor to my soul
My hope is found in You

[Verse 2]
Help me to trust in the unseen
Fill every space that's in between with Your promise
You are the strength that carries me
You go before me, You are surrounding me

[Chorus]
And even now, I see the clouds
A silver lining's breaking
My hope is found in You
My one defense, my confidence
The anchor to my soul
My hope is found in You
And even now, I see the clouds
A silver lining's breaking
My hope is found in You
My one defense, my confidence
The anchor to my soul
My hope is found in You

[Interlude]

[Bridge]
I let go, You take control
And I let go, You take control
And I let go, You take control
Jesus, I let go and You take control

[Chorus]
And even now, I see the clouds
A silver lining's breaking
My hope is found in You
My one defense, my confidence
The anchor to my soul
My hope is found in You
And even now, I see the clouds
A silver lining's breaking
My hope is found in You
My one defense, my confidence
The anchor to my soul
My hope is found in You!!!

[Outro]
You are my hope
You're my strength
You are my everything
My hope is found in You

Don’t worry about anything;

Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  
Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.
 His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
-Philippians 4:6-7

wherever you may go and no matter what life brings.”

The last few weeks I have been listening to this song nearly every day! Like it a lot!

Hills and Valleys
I've walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I've felt the pain of heartbreak
And I've seen the brighter days
And I've prayed prayers to heaven from my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God You give and take away
No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I'm standing in Your love

(chorus)
On the mountains I will bow my life to the One who set me there
In the valley I will lift my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I'm standing on the mountain I didn't get there on my own
When I'm walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You're God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

I've watched my dreams get broken
In You I hope again
No matter what
I know I'm safe inside Your hands

(chorus)
On the mountains I will bow my life to the One who set me there
In the valley I will lift my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I'm standing on the mountain I didn't get there on my own
When I'm walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You're God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

Father You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all You will remain over it all

On the mountains I will bow my life
In the valley I will lift my eyes

(chorus)
On the mountains I will bow my life to the One who set me there
In the valley I will lift my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I'm standing on the mountain I didn't get there on my own
When I'm walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You're God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

And I will choose to say
Blessed be Your name
And I am not alone
-Tauren Wells
Have a blessed week!


So today let our prayer be as it's written in Mark 9:24:
