MY TRIBUTE

How can I say thanks
For the things You have done for me,
Things so undeserved,
Yet You gave to prove Your love for me.
The voices of a million angels
Could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be,
I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.
With His blood He has saved me,
With His power He has raised me,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.

Just let me live my life,
Let it be pleasing, Lord, to Thee,
And if I gain any praise,
Let it go to Calvary.
With His blood He has saved me,
With His power He has raised me,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.

To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.
With His blood He has saved me,
With His power He has raised me,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.

After watching this short video...
i pretty much burst into song...

The best kind of "heart-condition"
Is one that brings you
to FRUITION.....
Amen!!!

Exercise is a requirement if you want to build muscle.
Left alone, muscles become soft and weak. In the same way, our spirits suffer when they never face difficulty or struggle.
Apart from the strengthening effects of pain and conflict, our faith would be weak and nearly useless.
This is why God doesn’t remove our fleshly tendencies when we become Christians.
He doesn’t want to change us immediately into perfectly obedient people.
"The tug of the flesh against our spirits gives faith a constant workout."

The apostle Paul wrote in Galatians 5:16 that believers should “walk by the Spirit, and [they] will not carry out the desire of the flesh.” The Holy Spirit is our spiritual trainer committed to getting our spirit into good shape so we can resist temptations.
Our goal should be to get on His exercise plan for healthy faith.

"The Ultimate Challenge"

How many of us...if we were asked this question..
"What's the purpose in your life?"
could answer
"To go to Heaven,and take as many people with me as i can!"

There are basically 5 reasons why we don't share our faith more often...and not 1 of them will hold up when we stand before Christ.
1-We think it's the preacher's job
2-We aren't sure of our Salvation
3-We fear being rejected
4-We've never taken responsibility for learning how
5-Our love for Christ has grown cold....
Paul said....
"Whatever a person is like,
i try to find
common ground with him
so that
he will let me tell him
about
Christ
and let
Christ
Save
him!"

Whatever we perceive to be challenges
in our lives
This must be
the
"Ultimate Challenge"

Oh Lord...
Have Mercy

The only music minister to whom the Lord will say,
"Well done, thy good and faithful servant," is the one
whose life proves what their lyrics are saying,
and to whom music is the least important part of their life. Glorifying the only worthy One
has to be a minister's most important goal! — Keith Green

Matthew 26:6
"While Jesus was in Bethany
in the home of a man
known as Simon the Leper...

a woman came to Him
with an alabaster jar
of very expensive perfume,
which she poured
on His head
as He was reclining
at the table."

Did Christ pour out his soul unto death for us,
and shall we think
any thing
too precious
for him?
Do we give him the precious ointment of our best affections? Let us love him with all the heart.
Those who honour Christ
He will honour.

"His Desire is toward me"...

His desire is toward us, and therefore He became a poor Man,
a lonely Man,
a weary Man,
and a thirsty Man
to win our hearts.
His desire is toward us, and therefore He suffered, bled and died to make us like Himself.
His desire is toward us;
and therefore is He coming again to receive us unto Himself that where He is we may be also.
He seems to say,
"I want you;
I can dispense with your riches, your abilities, and even your service, but I cannot do without you.
I want you so much that I became a poor Man to win your heart;
I want you so much that I died to make you like Myself;
I want you so much that soon I am coming for you to have you with Myself."
And as we enter into His thoughts toward us,
well may we each exclaim,
with great delight,
"I am my Beloved's, and His desire is toward me."

How good, as I pass through a world of sin and sorrow, death and judgment, to be able to look up to the Man in the glory and say, "He is my Saviour."

More wonderful still, as I pass through a world of dangers and snares on every hand, to be able to look up to the Saviour at the right hand of power, and say, "I am His."

But, most wonderful of all, to be able to say,
"There is a home in the glory that awaits me, and a Man in the glory that wants me."
"His desire is toward me."
He wants me so much that in the days of His flesh,
He wept for me and prayed for me, He suffered for me, and died for me;
and all the days of my journey
He is living for me;
and soon—very soon—He is coming for me.
And not till He has me with Him, and like Him, will the desires of His heart toward me be satisfied. But when all the redeemed are gathered home and His "new Name's imprinted on every sinless brow," then shall we realize in a deeper, fuller way that His desire is toward us,
and "He shall see of the fruit of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied."

"Sing, my soul! He loved thee,

Jesus gave Himself for me."

"Love-Note"

You are the map-maker of my destiny
You are the ear that listens whole-heartedly
You are the Hands that cup my face
You are my secret,hidden place
I long to be

Your loving eyes
enraptured
with me.

Take my breath away
Leave me speechless
I gladly surrender to the
weakness
Aftermath of Love's immersion =
All my fears...en-masse desertion

Every day,
the whole day through
I love spending time with you
Lord....

L.B. said...

This theme is so powerful right now....It will not relent...

I believe God wants to Bless
You...with this Truth....
"His Name is as ointment poured forth"....

"An ointment of comfort, protection, and all encompassing love beyond description.
His name is unspeakably Holy.
It's the warm liquid WHISPER of love infiltrating deep within your soul.
It's the ointment.
Let Him pour Himself on you, through you."

This message is destined for every heart that is willing to receive it..today!
He is The Good Shepherd....
"He tends His flock like a Shepherd...
He gathers the lambs in His Arms
and carries them close to
His Heart!
He gently leads those that have young."
Could there BE a more
powerful and gentle picture?!!!!
Oh Lambs....
Be held,and guided,and protected,and LOVED...
In Jesus' Name Amen!

Dealing With Guilt – Ephesians 1:3-14
The struggle with guilt is common to both believers and unbelievers. Its effect on us is the same, whether the source is real or false.

Feeling ashamed can lead us to doubt God’s presence, provision, or promises. We might struggle to believe He loves us. And if the emotions are strong enough, we may even question our salvation. Guilt can cause us to forget we are free from condemnation (Romans 8:1). It can also make us fearful that God is judging us harshly.

Another response to guilt is to try and pay the Lord back for our real or imagined mistakes. To earn His approval, we get compulsively busy and stay that way. Guilt that develops from “oughts,” “shoulds,” and “musts” will rob us of pleasure in our relationships. Time with others is ruined by twinges of guilt over incomplete tasks. This can lead to discouragement and depression.

Because of guilt’s destructive power, we need to resolve it quickly. When we’ve broken God’s commands, the solution is repentance and acceptance of God’s forgiveness. False guilt, on the other hand, is erased by embracing biblical truth.

Remind yourself of three things. First, you are special.
God chose you to belong to Him and is transforming you into Christ’s image.
Second, you are loved. God’s love for you is unconditional, unchangeable, and unending.
Third, you are forgiven. Jesus paid the full price for your every sin. God has permanently forgiven you and adopted you into His family.

God has provided an escape from your burden of guilt. Won’t you accept His offer?

What FREEDOM there is in JESUS!
Reminds me of :
That show Biggest Loser...
when they've lost all their
weight...and trek a mighty hill
with added weight
of what they were before...
and can feel the pressure of all that added
poundage...
What a RELIEF to feel
Light,and sprite,and weightless
in the newfound freedom of
all the excess that is now disgarded!It's as easy as throwing it down!
This is how it is with
unwanted guilt,and oppression!
Today..let us all
grasp the TRUTH of our Full and Complete Salvation
and trek on
lighter..happier...redeemed totally,and
able and FIT
to "do life" in a more healthy ,wholesome way!
See you at the top of the mountain!!!!!
We'll have a picnic!

Esme' S. Africa said...

Rough diamond - you are so right - what joy in being forgiven. What a beautiful Saviour we have. He has forgiven our sins as far as the east is from the west. The sins are in the deepest sea and He remembers them no more. Halleljah ! Race you to the top of the mountain - for that wonderful picnic !!! Esme' S. Africa

rough diamond said...

Hello Esme'....
If i don't get to meet you THIS side of
Heaven
We WILL do the "mountain-picnic"
I have to remind you though,
we won't HAVE to race....
time being eternal...endless....infinite
and forever and all!
We could drag it out and ... depending on the mountain
make it last 1000 years!
Esme'...do you totally get
spun around...
to think of how
Glorious and Majestic
OUR ETERNAL HOME IS!!!
I believe...
when we start to grasp,even in our limited capacity.....
the GRANDEUR and
unspeakable
SPLENDOUR
of Heaven.....VISIONS
OUR EYES HAVE never
BEHELD!
Our hearts hold a new
Love for the lost,
and we are "stretched out"
a little more
towards the
misery,and loneliness
of people
suffering in this
world.....
SHARE THE WEALTH!!!!

Precious Lord...
this morning...i offer a prayer of gratitude
for bringing us together in this way


Bless Ronald
and give him your Peace,and Strength,and Guidance...
THank you for Enlightening him as to "The Desire of Your Heart"
for him....
Thank You that Your Far-reaching Love...touches hearts
all over the world,
performing miracles in the heart!
And all the people said
AMEN!!!
Have a great day Esme'!!!!

O what a wonderful, wonderful day—
Day I will never forget;
After I'd wandered in darkness away,
Jesus my Saviour I met.
O what a tender, compassionate friend—
He met the need of my heart;
Shadows dispelling, with joy I am telling,
He made all the darkness depart.

Refrain:
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul,
When at the cross the Saviour made me whole;
My sins were washed away, and my night was turned to day—
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul.

Born of the Spirit with life from above
Into God's family divine,
Justified fully thro' Calvary's love,
O what a standing is mine!
And the transaction so quickly was made,
When as a sinner I came,
Took of the offer of grace He did proffer—
He saved me, O praise His dear Name!

Now I've a hope that will surely endure
After the passing of time;
I have a future in heaven for sure,
There in those mansions sublime.
And it's because of that wonderful day,
When at the cross I believed;
Riches eternal and blessings supernal
From His precious hand I received.

Hi Ronald, well I thought this blog was being closed out but, I see you are back! I wanted to comment on this video - great list of how to know Gods will! Recently I've been needing to use just such a list in my own life. And yes, it wars with the flesh and yes "Ah, glory to God!" ;) ha.
