Christ Has Loved Us

“There is no other solution to the marvellous mysteries of His Incarnation and Sacrificial Death but this: Christ has loved us.

There is not a circumstance of our Lord’s history which is not another form or manifestation of love.

His incarnation is love stooping.
His sympathy is love weeping.
His compassion is love supporting.
His grace is love acting.
His teaching is the voice of love.
His silence is the repose of love.
His patience is the restraint of love.
His obedience is the labor of love.
His suffering is the travail of love.
His cross is the altar of love.
His death is the burnt offering of love.
His resurrection is the triumph of love.
His ascension into heaven is the enthronement of love.
His sitting down at the right hand of God is the intercession of love.

Such is the deep, the vast, the boundless ocean of Christ’s love!”

Wonderful News!

I have wonderful news! This morning, I had a long talk with Gracie about all that will be expected of her once we start bonding. She seemed to be following me, until I told her that I go to church multiple times a week. She was a little uneasy about going to church with me so much. She told me "I don't believe in that stuff." So, I felt the need to tell her about Jesus, and after a good, long talk, she made a decision! Gracie accepted Jesus into her parts!!!!!!! :D

And LOOK! She is already reading her bible!!

I think this is going to be a great friendship!! :)

Who Is Like You

The thought of You is baffling, my mind can’t wrap around You
This human cup cannot contain heaven’s glory flood

Who is like you Lord, who was and is to come
Forever worshipped and adored
We pour our hearts here before Your throne
This is for You alone

The sight of You leaves me speechless
One glimpse and I am undone
This weight of glory stirs my soul
And I fall face down

Who is like You Lord, who was and is to come
Forever worshipped and adored
We pour our hearts here before Your throne
This is for You, You

All I can say is holy
All I can do is fall on my face
And cry holy

Who is like You Lord, who was and is to come
Forever worshipped and adored
We pour our hearts here before Your throne
This is for You alone

The Most Hallowed Spot

“Persuaded, as we are, that the foot of the cross is the nearest spot to Heaven, that Heaven’s choicest blessings are found only there; that, beneath its warm sunshine the holy fruit of the Spirit ripens, and that under its sacred shade the sweetest repose is found; that, never is the believing soul so near to God, in such intimate fellowship with Christ, more really under the direct teaching of the Holy Spirit, as when there, we would sincerely employ every scriptural argument and put forth every persuasive motive to allure the reader to this hallowed spot, assured that, once he finds himself in believing, loving adoration at the foot of Christ’s cross, he has found himself at the focus of all divine glory, and at the confluence of all spiritual blessing.”

It Is Well

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
was nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

You Are My All In All

You're everything
the Beginning and the End
the First and the Last, You are
the great I AM.

Jesus, Lamb of God,
worthy is Your name.
Jesus, precious Lamb of God,
worthy is Your name!

I hate death.

Who is occupying the throne today?

“In our vision of ultimate reality, who is occupying the throne today? Are we authentic New Testament Christians, whose vision is filled with Christ crucified, risen and reigning? Is guilt still reigning, and death? Or is grace reigning, and life?

To be sure, sin and Satan may seem to be reigning still, since many continue to bow down to them. But their reign is an illusion, a bluff. For at the cross they were decisively defeated, dethroned and disarmed.

Now Christ reigns, exalted to the Father’s right hand, with all things under his feet, welcoming the nations, and waiting for his remaining enemies to be made his footstool.”

Shepherd, Savior, Pasture Maker,
hold onto my hand,
and You said I AM.
