Have a blessed day! 
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:

"I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"


In Mark 10 we can read the beautiful story of blind Bartimaeus who receives his sight.
"Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.”  
 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
-Mark 10:49-52

In the same way Jesus wants to meet you today and He asks you:
"WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO FOR YOU?" 
What is your answer? He wants to meet all your needs!
You are loved!

Have a blessed October!
Guide me in your truth and teach me...
My hope is in you all day long. 
-Psalm 25:5

I have it all planned out
—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, 
plans to give you the future you hope for.
-Jeremiah 29:11 MSG
 
The other day I red Kris Vallotton's new blog post and it was so powerful and good that I want to encourage you to read it too! (Click here to see the post)
I was touched by his words telling that "Sometimes Jesus asks you to do the thing you’ve been doing just one more time. I feel like this is a “try it again” day—whether that means going to the doctor one more time, going to the healing rooms one more time, calling your son or daughter that you haven’t heard from in years one more time…Today is the day that you can walk out of pain."

I want to encourage you today to also turn your pains into praises!
There’s something very powerful about praising God in the midst of our challenges...it changes our focus from the pain to God who loves us perfectly and whose resources are limitless.

 Kris Valloton's blogpost that I talked about earlier in this post includes
 a powerful declaration of breakthroug!Declare it and start to celebrate!

“I am leaving my pain behind. This is my day of deliverance. This day, the Lord will deliver me from the things that have plagued me and my family for generations. This is the day that the Lord decreed that I would walk out of a place of misery in every area of my life. Today’s breakthrough will affect and infect my children and my grandchildren. We will create a legacy of breakthrough. Hope and peace will be named among the attributes of my family lineage. Our family will create a culture of wholeness. What feeds us and walks us out of pain today will become our strength, and thousands of people will come to our house to get out of pain and find promise!”

 Focus on Jesus and celebrate!

ALL I NEED IS YOU LORD! - so true! 
"All I Need Is You"

Left my fear by the side of the road
Hear You speak
Won't let go
Fall to my knees as I lift my hands to pray

Got every reason to be here again
Father's love that draws me in
And all my eyes wanna see is a glimpse of You

All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord

One more day and it's not the same
Your Spirit calls my heart to sing
Drawn to the voice of my Saviour once again
Where would my soul be without Your Son
Gave His life to save the earth
Rest in the thought that You're watching over me

All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord

You hold the universe
You hold everyone on earth
You hold the universe
You hold
You hold

A Million Lights

[Verse 1]
A million lights
Hanging on the wall tonight
I see it [reaching down?]
Dancing on the evening tide

[Chorus 1]
For You
All the stars are singing
With You
Every day I'm feeling; alive

[Verse 2]
A million days
And everyone has seen Your face
I know I'll never be alone
Even darkness goes away

[Chorus 1]
For You
All the stars are singing
With You
Every day I'm feeling; alive

[Bridge]
Ooh, oh-ooh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, ooh, oh-ooh
Ooh, oh-ooh

Lovely song! 
"It Is Well"
Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
It is well with me

Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can't see

And this mountain that's in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well

So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name [repeat last line during 3rd run]
[x3]

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
[repeat 3x]

It is well it is well with my soul [x3]
ahhhhhhh (softly)

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You Lord
Through it all, through it all
It is well with me.
[x2]
-Bethel Music
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
-Matthew 17:20
I love this new song from Matt Redman!

Gracefully Broken

Take all I have in these hands
And multiply, God, all that I am
And find my heart on the altar again
Set me on fire, set me on fire
Take all I have in these hands
And multiply, God, all that I am
And find my heart on the altar again
Set me on fire, set me on fire

[Chorus]
Here I am, God
Arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Gracefully broken


My heart stands in awe of Your name
Your mighty love stands strong to the end
You will fulfill Your purpose for me
You won't forsake me, You will be with me


Here I am, God
Arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Gracefully broken
Pouring out my life again
Here I am, God
Arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Gracefully broken
Oh, gracefully


All to Jesus now
All to Jesus now
Holding nothing back
Holding nothing back
I surrender
I surrender
I surrender
I surrender

Here I am, God
Arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Gracefully broken
Pouring out my life again
Here I am, God
With my arms wide open
With my arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Gracefully broken
Oh, gracefully

Your power and work in me
I'm broken gracefully
I'm strong when I am weak
I will be free
Your power and work in me
I'm broken gracefully
I'm strong when I am weak
I will be free
Your power and work in me
I'm broken gracefully
I'm strong when I am weak
I will be free

Your power and work in me
I'm broken gracefully
I'm strong when I am weak
I will be free

-Matt Redman

Always remember: GOD LOVES YOU!


"What you tell yourself matters more what you tell to others!"
Have a blessed week! 

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!  


This is such a great question and a great reminder...
Jehovah-Jireh” is one of the many different names of God in the Old Testament and it means
The Lord will provide. 
So truly God is my provider!
Let's remember it!


 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.  So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
-Genesis 22:13-14 

A new song from Hillsong Young & Free ! Love it! 

Love Won't Let Me Down 
VERSE 1
When I was searching
Your love was never far
You made a way to get to me
You were the whisper Leading me to Your heart Forever I belong to You
PRE-CHORUS
Now I can see clearly My God You are for me You won’t let go
CHORUS
Your love won’t let me down
And I know it’s true
Yeah I know that Your love is all around I believe in You
Holding on to You
Holding on and I know You will never fail I want all of You
You never change
Your love won’t let me down
Love won’t let me down
VERSE 2
Right when I need You
You listen as I pray
You’d leave the ninety-nine for me
You paint the sky with Promises of Your grace
So I would find my way to You

 -Words and Music by Michael Fatkin & Alexander Pappas

The Bible tells us that we are wonderfully made:
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
-Psalm 139:14 

Yet how easily we don't appreciate our body or some parts of it. 

But Jesus said in Matthew 19:19 that we have to love ourselves!
The secret of loving ourselves:



 "Loving yourself is the key to a prosperous soul, which is the foundation for becoming wealthy and healthy in every area of your life."
-Kris Vallotton
It is important how we think about ourselves:
So...Think about yourself as God thinks about you- and start to love yourself!
It's worth to love yourself NOW!

Love has name

[Verse 1]
There's a space in every beating heart
There's a longing that reaches past the stars
There's an answer to every question mark

There's a voice that echoes through the pain
There's an ember ready for the flame
There's a name

We will stand in awe of the One who breaks the chains

[Chorus 1]
Love has a name

We will fix our eyes on the One who overcame
We will stand in awe of the One who breaks the chains
