Thankful

love-of-christThere is no love greater than the love of God. It is an unconditional kind of love. No human can offer us what God offers. It is a sad situation when we put other things, other persons as our top priority. It leads to dry spells and a lacking of peace and joy, because nothing and no one can compare to this Great God; nothing and no one can satisfy our souls but God. During this season of memorial, that is,  remembering the Death, Burial and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus I am reminded of His love. How on my behalf, and your behalf He took the penalty of sin upon Himself. I see in the Gospels that He didn’t take the sour wine (Matthew 27:34) to numb His senses on the cross, but experienced the full pain of that torturous punishment; my punishment, your punishment. I am forever thankful.  What a great love.

Jesus all to You I owe, sin had left a crimson stain, You washed it white as snow.

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

God is my [our] home

A poem about the wonderful Jesus. I hope you enjoy.

Be blessed.

God is my rock, my home
In His presence is where I belong
He’s all faithful, my entire hope
He’s my shelter from the storm

My God provides all I need
He sees all and watches over me
My God of great comfort
The God who broke my chains and set me free

When He called me that’s when life begun
Now I live, I live for Him
I am His servant
I pray I won’t leave His will undone

God works for the good of those who love Him
All glory to the eternal King
More praises to Him my heart will sing

His mercy endures to everlasting
I just want to be like Him
So more worship, more honour I can bring

Devoted to You LORD am I and many more like me
We live for You Oh God
You Jesus are our home, our life, our all.
