because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
T.B. LaBerge // Jesus, His Grace and the Gospel
I’ve seen a lot of my failures. over and over again. i’ve repeatedly felt shame and guilt in parts of my life i thought i’ve already been healed from. and then, life throws a curve ball at your face and there you go again, falling.
then i am reminded i am human. these are my tendencies. but that’s why Jesus came to die. for me. for You. for all of us. because He knew. there is only one way that I am restored and renewed.. and it has been and always will be through Jesus Christ.
I don’t deserve it. sometimes, the Good News is too good for me. I can’t approach it or welcome it with open arms, because I feel soo unworthy of it. then I hear Him whisper, "grace." This is amazing grace.
His mercy never comes to an end
they are new every morning, new every morning
great is thy faithfulness, oh Lord
how great is thy faithfulness
Amen. Claimed it.
the comfort of my Jesus can and will never be replaced.
Your sure and steadfast mercies
You have never left me, Lord
Nothing out of the extraordinary happened today. Nothing too exciting, nothing super good.
But I was just reminded that I serve a goood God.
life is moving really fast
"For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.”
my sin, o the bliss of this glorious thought
my sin not in part, but the whole
is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more
praise the Lord, PRAISE THE LORD OOO MY SOUL!
lift your hands and just praise
You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is Your name
i’m gonna fight until i die. that’s the decision i made 3 years ago and i will not go back. i will not give in to agree with the devil. i will choose the light. i will fight for truth. i will fight for faith. i’m gonna fight to believe.. in the things that i don’t see. im gonna fight for the life of faith.
I am feeling like there is no hope, BUT GOD tells me that He is my hope (Psalm 62:5). I am feeling like I am alone in this world, BUT GOD says He will never leave me or forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). My sadness is more than I can bear, BUT GOD promises to carry my burdens(Matthew 11:28).In this waiting “we affirm the wise, strong hand of God to hold us, even when we have no strength to hold Him” (Piper).
"The thought that there beats a heart in heaven that is always loving us, that there moves a tongue in heaven that always pleads for us; that there is an arm in heaven that always fights for us; and that there is a foot in heaven that will be swift to run for our defence—oh! this is a precious consolation."
Charles Spurgeon (via swallowedupbylife)
we sway, take the lead and I will follow
finally ready now,
to close my eyes and just believe
that You won’t lead me where You don’t go
CHRIST THE HOPE OF GLORRY
