One True God

I love this song by Mark Harris! I don't have a care that I carry alone ~ But I have a God who's carrying me. Just love that. I thank Jesus that I don't have to carry any of these earthly burdens alone. What a sweet relief that is! Thank you Jesus.

I don't have a God I can put on a stand
Or a God I hold in the palm of my hand
I have a God that's holding me
And I don't have a God that I can create
In the place I live with the money I make
I have a God, He made everything
So I don't need a temporary man made deity
When I got the real thing
I got the real thing

He's the Lord of all the earth
The maker of all things
He alone is the one true God
Kingdoms rise and fall
But even through it all
He remains
The one true God

I don't have a thing that I got on my own
I don't have a care that I carry alone
But I have a God who's carrying me
I don't have sin that He doesn't forgive
And I don't have a heart that is worthy of His
But I have a God who still loves me
So I don't need a temporary man made deity
When I got the real thing
I got the real thing

Lord of all the earth
The maker of all things
He alone is the one true God
Kingdoms rise and fall
But even through it all
He remains
The one true God

Who is this King of Glory
The Lord strong and mighty
Who is this King of Glory
The Lord strong and mighty
Who is this King of Glory
Who is this King of Glory

My Glory and the Lifter of My Head

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
Lord, help me to think on these things, to know that you are in control of my life, that I can't let anyone control me or my thoughts, that it's up to me to let it roll off my back.
1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

We often sing the following song at church, and it always seems to choke me up, and today it is so close to my heart and the murmur of my lips.

1. Lord how are they increased that trouble me

Many are they that rise up against me

Many there be that say of my soul

There is no help for him in God.

But thou oh Lord are a shield for me

My glory, and the lifter of my head

But thou oh Lord are a shield for me

Youre my glory, the lifter of my head.

2. I cried to the Lord with my voice,

And he heard me out of his Holy hill.

I laid me down and I slept

I awoke for the Lord sustained me.


I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people

That set themselves against me round about (x 2)

Lifting My Eyes

Love this song, and today feel like I really need to think on these words. Bebo Norman sings it, and I just love it.

I Will Lift My Eyes
Verse 1
God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God, be near, calm my fear
And take my doubt

Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can’t climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You

Verse 2
God, my God, let Mercy sing
Her melody over me
God, right here all I bring
Is all of me

‘Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
‘Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it
together, God
So hold me now

Haiti Mission

Our church has partnered with some other local churches in the community to bring a little bit of help to Haiti. Collections of food, clothing, medical supplies, blankets, tents, tools, generators and even some toys were taken. Shoes were donated from Rockport Shoe ~ over 700 pairs! What an amazing, giving company! All of the clothing was shrink wrapped according to gender and size, thanks to a commercial shrink wrap machine that was loaned to us. It was a huge effort that took so many people, but what a blessing it will be. Over 100 thousand Christian Tracts were donated to hand out as well. Pray that the donations and the message that come with it will be well received and a blessing to those that they touch.
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Song for a Sunday

This is my favorite hymn!

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

His dying crimson, like a robe,
Spreads o’er His body on the tree;
Then I am dead to all the globe,
And all the globe is dead to me.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Decided to have a little fun in the snow and enjoy the picture opportunity that it presented as well. I love how these pictures came out ~ course it helps that I think the subject of them is just adorable!

I think I enjoy blogging because it is simply, to me, an on-line journal. I have a journal that I like to write in . . . . but seem to always forget! Why does it seem so much harder to write in my journal? I have to attempt to be better about that, and make it a priority. It's enjoyable when I remember to do it! And I love to look back at it. Here are a few pages . . . . . .

He First Loved Us

Valentines Day! My husband bought me a dozen beautiful red roses. He is such a blessing to me and I thank God for him continually. I am blessed to have him, to have our wonderful children.
Our day today was filled with family and love. Nice breakfast together, fellowship at church and a wonderful message. Wonderful cards from the kids ~ some made with love, some bought with thought. Lots of hugs and sweet words. Home to make food for a friend who had an accident. Dinner prepared for my hubby and the kids ~ fillet mignon, asparagus, baby potatoes and carrots, bread and pesto. A sweet homemade dessert. All done in love, served in love and with joy. Could ask for nothing more!
But the most wonderful gift of all? The love our God has for us. A love greater than all others.

Ephesians 2:4-7 (King James Version)
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might.
Deuteronomy 6: 5

For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8: 38-39
