Beautiful song! 💓
Let our motto be during this week:
"In Jesus name we stand and we say we are free!"
Your love is taking over me, over me Broke me from my chains and set me free Mercy came and died for me, died for me Now I stand in Grace and have been redeemed You're breathing in new life in me, life in me Taking all my shame and my fears released You're the only one for me, one for me Your victory's alive and it reigns in me The cross has won, death overcome We are free In Jesus name, we stand and we say We are free You're breathing in new life in me, life in me Taking all my shame and my fears released You're the only one for me, one for me Your victory's alive and it reigns in me The cross has won, death overcome We are free In Jesus name, we stand and we say We are free -Life.Church Worship 
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
-Hebrews 3:13 NIV

Remember, too, that knowing what is right to do and then not doing it is sin.

Here is a new song from Britt Nicole: 

Be The Change

I been starin at the wall, waitin
I been lookin for a change lately
All the trouble all the pain, we're facin
Someone's gotta be the hope and
Someone's gotta be the love

Too much light to be livin in the dark
Where are we goin, we ain't gettin very far
Why waste time, we only got one life

Don't you know it starts today
Baby, no it's not too late
It begins with you and I
Together we can be the change
So go on let your heart burn bright
Watch it catch like a wild fire
I believe in you and I
Together we can be the change

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Together we can be the change

So many hearts around the world breakin
If I only got one chance, I'll take it
Let my voice be a trumpet that could save em
Someone's gotta be the hope and
Someone's gotta be the love

Too much light to be livin in the dark
Where are we goin, we ain't gettin very far
Why waste time, we only got one life

Face it, one chance we gotta take it

Stand together and change it
We can make this world bright
Turn on all the lights
Face it, one chance we gotta take it
Stand together and change it
We can make this world bright
Turn on all the lights
We can be the change
-Britt Nicole

Have a blessed June!
"This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 
-John 15:12


Make it your goal each day to pursue God’s love
 and then give it away.  
-Joyce Meyer



This week’s featured song is from Casting Crowns called “Oh My Soul".
I just red that the song that was written the very night that Mark Hall found out he had cancer
 and his kidney was going to have to come out.
“I just sat down on the piano and was looking at the verse where David says, ‘Why so downcast, oh my soul. Put your hope in God.’ So the song is me just having a little argument with myself and giving it to Him.”
 – Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)

Listen to this beautiful song!

Oh My Soul” Lyrics
Oh, my soul
Oh, how you worry
Oh, how you’re weary, from fearing you lost control
This was the one thing, you didn’t see coming
And no one would blame you, though
If you cried in private
If you tried to hide it away, so no one knows
No one will see, if you stop believing
Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There’s a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
‘Cause you’re not alone

Here and now
You can be honest
I won’t try to promise that someday it all works out
‘Cause this is the valley
And even now, He is breathing on your dry bones
And there will be dancing
There will be beauty where beauty was ash and stone
This much I know

Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There’s a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
I’m not strong enough, I can’t take anymore
(You can lay it down, you can lay it down)
And my shipwrecked faith will never get me to shore
(You can lay it down, you can lay it down)
Can He find me here 
Can He keep me from going under

Oh, my soul
You’re not alone
There’s a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
‘Cause you’re not alone
Oh, my soul, you’re not alone
- Casting Crowns


 
God's word is food for our souls!

"There are now magic beans! 😀
Just keep going! God has a plan for your life!
Be faithful and trust the process while walking with Jesus!
If you don't grow weary you will see the harvest!"

-Levi Lusko 

 

I love to listen a podcast while I walk outside and enjoy a beautiful spring day...and the other day I listened to a really great sermon from pastor Craig Groeschel called  
"Overcoming the Curse of Comparing". (click here to watch this sermon)
Such a great teaching! And so important because comparing  has never been easier in the history of the world than it's today because of the social media. It's so easy to look for example someone's photo on Instagram and immediately start to compare it to something else....
But  "Where comparison begins, contentment ends..."
... But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant!
-2 Corinthians 10:12 NLT  

 But the thing is that "the fastest way to kill something special is to compare it to something else."

Comparing makes you feel either superior or inferior
—neither honors God. 
-Craig Groeschel

AND OFTEN THE PROBLEM IS:



 "When you compare yourself to others or wish you were like someone else, it’s like saying God didn’t do a good job creating you. But God didn’t make anyone inferior or second class."
-Craig Groeschel 

SO REMEMBER:

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, 
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
- Ephesians 2:10 NLT

YOU ARE UNIQUE. AND LOVED. AND BLESSED.


 
God wants you to live in the fullness and freedom He intends for you. And God has made a way for you to live in freedom! God gave his only son to die on the cross and rose from the grave so you could shake off the prospect of a doomed life. God came to set you free! So really "Here's the first thing to being free is believing you can be free!" 
 So believe it! 
And remember: 
VICTORY IS ALL ABOUT TRUSTING IN CHRIST!

These days I have been humming this song "Live in the Wonderful" by Lakewood Music.
This song truly is uplifting!What a wonderful statement: "GIVE ME FAITH TO SEE THE INCREDIBLE- to live in the wonderful..."


"Live in the Wonderful"
Through the fire
Through the rain
Through every trial
Your love will never fade

Lord, You are true
Faithful still
Oh even when
I'm feeling overwhelmed

Cause there is hope
Beyond the things I see
Even in the dirt
I know I must believe

Give me faith to see the incredible
To live in the wonderful
To wait on the miracle
Give me strength
To reach for the furthest star
To lift every broken heart
To love from these mended scars

Through the flames
Through the flood
Through everything
I'm covered by Your love

Lord, You are here
And I'm amazed
My hopes and fears
Are met by endless grace

Cause there is peace
That only you can bring
Even in my mess
You hold the victory

We're gonna see all the walls come down
We're gonna see the lost in us be found
And believe for every prayer's answer
We're gonna see heaven here on earth
We're gonna see life rising from the dirt
And believe there's power in Your name 
-Lakewood Music

Hi!
Today I want to share with you something different: a song in Finnish- my native language! :) 
The song is called "ABBA" and it is from the Finnish group called Northwind Collective.
Northwind Collective was born in the year 2015 in Finland's capital city, Helsinki by
the worship pastors Rodrigo and Saara Campos (Rodrigo is from Brazil), but the group has 30 Jesus lovers consisting not only singers and musicians but also artists, dancers, fashion designers and media people. Northwind Collective just released a new album called "Isä" (Father) and the song Abba is from this new album.

So... the song is of course in Finnish 👍☺but there is subtitles on the video so you 
see the translation of the beautiful lyrics. Enjoy! 😌

"Abba"
...I throw myself into your arms
Abba
when you touch you heal
...Daddy I love you
You carry me when I'm tired
Daddy you love me...
 
"Jesus says: if you don't quit you win!
Never quit worshipping,
never quit loving, 
never quit fixing your eyes on Jesus.
Never, never quit!"
-Heid Baker 




Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.
- Psalm 107:1

If we really think about it every day we have so many reasons to be grateful...
and when we are grateful we feel better in every way and we can recognize how blessed we actually are. 

A great thing to do every day is to write down 
at least 3 things you are grateful for. 

Today I'm grateful for :
1. ____________________________
2. ____________________________
3. ____________________________

 

I have loved you with an everlasting love;
    I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
-Jeremiah 31:3 

GOD LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT.  
 Always be joyful.  Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
-1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

God does not suggest us to do these 3 things, but He God commands us:
ALWAYS BE JOYFUL.
NEVER STOP PRAYING.
BE THANKFUL.

Have a blessed day!

Mandisa's next album titled Out Of The Dark will release May 19.
Today let's listen to a song from this new album called "Unfinished".


"Unfinished"

Not scared to say it, I used to be the one
Preaching it to you, that you could overcome
I still believe it, but it ain't easy
'Cause that world I painted, where things just all work out
It started changing and I started having doubts
And it got me so down

But I picked myself back up
And I started telling me
No, my God's not done
Making me a masterpiece
He's still working on me

He started something good and I'm gonna believe it
He started something good and He's gonna complete it
So I'll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain't through
I'm just unfinished
I'm just unfinished
So I'll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain't through
I'm just unfinished

I know His history and the kind of God He is
He might make it a mystery
But He's proving I can trust in Him
And yeah, I believe it

So I can pick myself back up
And keep on telling me
No, my God's not done
Making me a masterpiece
No, my God's not done

He started something good and I'm gonna believe it
He started something good and He's gonna complete it
So I'll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain't through
I'm just unfinished
(Yeah)
I'm just unfinished
So I'll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain't through

Still workin'
Still, still workin' on me
He's still workin'
Still, still workin' on me

He started something good and I'm gonna believe it
He started something good and He's gonna complete it
So I'll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain't through
I'm just unfinished
I'm just unfinished
(I'm just unfinished)
So I'll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain't through
I'm just unfinished

Still workin'
Still, still workin' on me
He's still workin'
Still, still workin' on me
Oh, yeah
I'm just unfinished 
-Mandisa
