A Plaque of His Promise

I received a gift plaque from someone close to my heart, to remind me that God will always be with me. It's always comforting when someone tells us they will never leave us and their love is for eternity. Even more when I know my Father in heaven is never going to leave me. I imagined when I have to go through a dying stage in the future, these words are the words that will comfort me and I pray that God's tangible love will see me through as I walk towards eternity with Him.

Let's not think of that day just yet. Presently we need to be sure of God's promises. What God says, It is. In our daily walk with Him, we need to have faith in what He wants to do in and through our lives,therefore yielding to His will knowing that whatever happens, He is in control. And He will see us through everything from broken relationship,financial difficulties, betrayal, and even through deaths of loved ones. He is Jehovah Shammah, the Eternal God who is with us.

We may not understand everything that happens in our life but as we learn to depend on Him, we will see His Word sustaining and strengthening us, His love expelling all fears and we will conquer the darts of the evil one, overcome our fleshly desires and live victoriously.All glory to God.

It's You

Years ago, my friends and I traveled by bus to a 24hours worship and prayer meeting at Tabernacle of David, KL. It was an awesome time praising and worshiping God together with an assemble of people who are hungry for God. Banners, tambourines, ribbons and shofar were all played beautifully unto the Lord.I came to know the pastor's daughter Michelle and she was kind to give my two other friends and I,a CD of her youth group's new album Beyond. Thank you Michelle. The one song that has always touched my heart is the song It's You. It's that feeling that you know it's God in you and He is filling you with His joy and love that makes you connect with the song. I love to lead the church with this song when we are deep in worship. In the link that I gave, its a new version of the song. Melody is still the same.

Its You
When I feel my heart soar,
When I feel my spirit lifted up,
I know, its You.
When I feel it bubbling over,
When I feel such joy I can't explain
I know, its You.

It's You, my Jesus I know it's You,
You've come to set me free,
I lift my hands in worship to Your Name,
It's You, my Lord I know it's You,
Your presence is in this place,
I bow in Your name.

When I feel so clean and new,
When I feel like soaring high above,
I know it's You
When I feel such healing inside,
When I feel Your love surrounding me,
I know it's You.

Jesus Takes The Wheel

This song sung by Carrie Underwood (American Idol winner) speaks about a woman who has gone through a hard year and nearly met her death but God allowed the situation to turn into a triumphant moment, His daughter returned to Him and she had another chance in life to make things better for her and her family. She started to depend on God again starting by confessing she needed Him.

There are times when we acknowledge who God is but we do not give Him the full access to every part of our life. So often we don't realise or sense the conviction on how precious we are to God that we take matters in our own hands thinking it's for our best interest. What about God's point of view? Who do we look to for guidance? Just my ponderings as I listened to this song.

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy
With the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low, on faith and gasoline
It'd been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
She was going way too fast
And before she knew it she was spinning
On a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Sleeping like a rock
And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way, I've been living my life
I know I've got to change, so from now on tonight

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
Just give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Oh Jesus take the wheel

Ohh I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Just from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel
Oh, take it, take it from me
Oh whaaaa ooooh......

Beautiful Children Worship

It's wonderful to see children lift their hands in worship unto the Lord. As they do, I believe they will experience more of God's love and grow in the knowledge of Him. A simple believing heart will bring them closer to their Father in heaven.

Enjoy this song Jesus loves me from Hillsong Kids.

The Ancient Path

This entry is in respond to my previous post on Jeremiah 6:16.My ponderings and wonderings has brought me to this old song of Tom Inglis from the album 'We are One'. The road of a believer is not always without a bump or potholes and it can be narrow and winding but nevertheless rewarding. We are victors and co-heirs with Christ,for He has overcome sin and death, giving us hope and strength to finish the race with our heads held high. I hope this song ministers to you and brings you to the ancient path, the path which God has wonderfully landscaped for you.Be blessed as I'm also blessed!

Jeremiah 6:16

Jeremiah 6:16 (NIV)
16 This is what the LORD says:
"Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.
But you said, 'We will not walk in it.'

I read this verse this morning and it stirred an inquisitive spirit in me to question more on what it is speaking to me. The words that struck out IS
'STAND' - to be still before the Lord
'LOOK' - to consider,observe and study the ways
'ASK' - to ask God of the best option

I looked up further on 'ANCIENT PATHS' and it speaks of ways of life walked by our spiritual fathers of the past.Example when we want to learn something new, we seek teachers who has experience and have the knowledge to show us what is the best way to learn. Likewise it also mean quoting a preacher "God has prescribed for us to walk as found in God’s Word in the Scripture. They are, simply put, “God’s will for us.”

Consequently we will find rest for our souls. I believe in each of our life, we seek peace in all we do. But as much as we know what is right to do, there are times we just don't do it. Just like Romans 7:15 says, I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.. Thank God for His patience, grace and kindness to us.

Word Of God Speaks

How hungry are we for God's Word in our life?
How much do we know of the power of His Word?
Who speaks in our heart daily?
Whose voice do we obey?
What does His voice sounds like?
What does He want us to do?
When must we listen to Him?
When do we spend time listening?
Why do we have to listen to Him?
Why do we need to know everything?

John 1:1
[ The Word Became Flesh ] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Luke 11:28
He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."

Psalm 18:30
As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him
