Your storm won’t last always!!

Psalm 57:1-3 (ESV)

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
    for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
    till the storms of destruction pass by.
I cry out to God Most High,
    to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
He will send from heaven and save me;
    he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

Psalm 107:29 (ESV)

He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.

2 Corinthians 4:17 (NLT)

For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!

As I listen to the words of this song, I am reminded of a time when I thought I had to face the storms of life all alone.  Thank goodness for my Savior and Redeemer who is with me every step of the way!!!

Even though your winds blow
I want you to know
You cause me no alarm
Cause I’m safe in His arms
Even though your rain falls
I can still make this call;
Let there be peace
Now I can say go away
I command you to move today
Because of faith I have a brand new day
The sun will shine and I will be okay
That’s what I told the storm!

 

 

BE BLESSED!!!

Music Monday: In This World, Not Of It

Romans 12:2 (AMP)

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

1 John 2:15-16 (AMP)

15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].

BE BLESSED!!!

John 3:30 (NLT)

He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.

John 13:34-35 (NLT)

34 So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (NLT)

17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin,so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Colossians 3:17 (NLT)

 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

Let the world see Christ in you.  For some, you may be the only Jesus they’ll see! 

BE BLESSED!!!!

Jeremiah 10:6 (NKJV)

Inasmuch as there is none like You, O Lord
(You are great, and Your name is great in might),

Philippians 2:9-11 (NKJV)

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Acts 4:12 (NKJV)

 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Romans 10:13 (NKJV)

 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

 

 

BE BLESSED!!
