He Bottles Our Tears

He Bottles Our Tears

They cost us nothing; but cost Him everything

… … …

These are gifts from our Heavenly Father

Nothing we can do; but receive them with thanksgiving and obedience

Love … Forgiveness … Joy … Peace

Freedom … Eternal life … Death of old life

Redemption … Salvation

Mercy … Grace

Hope … Compassion

Repentance … Yes, even repentance

Faith … The precious wonder of this priceless gift

Daily blessings

Trials … The heat of the furnace … The hotter, the more it hurts, the more humble we become

Ready to serve

To love even more

Yes, everything is from God

Everything

Our lives are definitely in His hands

Surrendered to Jesus?  Praise God

May your love for Him intensify each and every day

Or are you struggling intensely with internal strife?

At the crossroads and you must move forth?

Choose life

Choose Jesus

The beautiful gateway … the open door … eternal freedom … eternal love

He is calling you today

Frightened of surrender?

Surrender is not giving yourself to a life of bondage

With Christianity, surrender is freedom

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

ARE YOU SUFFERING IN ANY WAY RIGHT NOW?

May God bless all who read this and may the Truth prevail in your life

May you rest in His perfect love for you

May you feel His compassion flow in and through you

May His great mercies manifest in your life today

May your wanderings from fear, hopelessness and anguish be gone

In Jesus Name.  Amen

*      *       *       *       *       *       *

Call out to Him.

He will answer every prayer lifted up … unable to speak … don’t know what to say?

He will give you the words

Maybe you can’t hear them; but they’re there and He can

Each prayer lifted up with genuine tears

Every tear tells a story

Maybe you cannot cry anymore for your tears have flooded your life for so long

He will hear each broken heart – for every broken heart cries unseen tears within

And every broken heart releases love with that pain

He knows

He will answer

He loves you

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.’

John 14:6 KJV

Life’s Thorns

Flowers 006

Every thorn along the pathway of life can either enable or disable us. It can either weaken our faith or strengthen our faith. We can either let it hurt us or we can use it as a step to becoming closer to the precious full bloom that God intended us to be.

Trusting Trust

we walk by faith

Trust means placing both of our hands in the Lord’s hand and allowing Him to lead the way
even though we cannot see the path His light shines upon,
where our footsteps will go,
when we will move,
when we will rest
or know how long it will take to go
where we don’t know where we are going
how we will be able to do what He has planned for us,
how to say what He would have us say,
how to listen when He would have us listen,
how to give when He would have us give
or how to receive what He has in His treasure house for us.

We can trust though, because His love enables us to flow beautifully
in the peace of knowing that in His care, we are safe.

HE WHISPERS HIS LOVE THROUGH ME (A Prayerful Song)

He Whispers His Love Through MeJesus
My Saviour
Be magnified
Be glorified
I lift up Your Holy Name
I lift up Your Holy Name
Oh! Whisper Your love through me
Oh! Whisper Your love through me

Chorus
Turn my ear
And gently hold
My face within Your hands
Look into my oft-crying eyes
And whisper Your love to me

Jesus
Separate this heart
Into welcoming arms
Arms that long to receive
A heart that longs to believe
A heart that longs to believe
Oh! Whisper Your love through me
Oh! Whisper Your love through me

Chorus
Turn my ear
And gently hold
My face within Your hands
Look into my oft-crying eyes
And whisper Your love to me

With Your small, still voice
Drown out my sorrows
And fear of tomorrows
And tell of Your love for me

Chorus
Turn my ear
And gently hold
My face within Your hands
Look into my oft-crying eyes
And whisper Your love to me

Bread of Redemption … Food of Life

Bread of RedemptionYou have given me faith
You have given me life
You have given me sunshine
You have given me shelter
You have given me all
You have given me life.

The good seed is planted
The soil hungry, searching
In the hidden thoughts
Of my heart
Little to start with;
But with sunshine and rain
You always send
I receive
It is nourished day by day.

I must water and let it see
The light each day
Or otherwise what it has become
Will become no more.
Weeds and evil thoughts
Dryness and grudges
Will stop the good seed
From growing and growing
And
Producing good fruit
To be shared with others
Those whose fruit bowl is empty
Those who need to be fed
With Your truth and Your love.

Your hand reaches down
And waters the garden
In my heart.

The garden
Where love is abound
And
Watering-can sprinkles
And sunrays do shine
On every good seed
Where obedience is found.
