I seek You will all my heart

“10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
  11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.”

NIV Psalm 119:10-11; KJV Psalm 119:10-11

Read Psalm 119

Lord, I need you and I seek you every day. When I am happy I seek you, even more when I am sad. When everything goes smoothly I need you, but even more when things go wrong. Be with me Lord, that’s my prayer today and be with all who trust in You and all who seek You and all who are still not aware of You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Letting God take control

Read 1 Samuel 3

“So Samuel told him everything, hiding nothing from him. Then Eli said, “He is the Lord; let him do what is good in his eyes.”

NIV 1 Samuel 3:18; KJV 1 Samuel 3:18

all You want me to be

I’ll be all You

Want me to be,

I’ll try to be

Even more.

It is not easy,

To let go of ‘I’

And that’s what

I’m aiming for.

A lot of help

I will need,

And Your support

Along the way.

Be with me and

Make me strong,

I will continue

To pray.

My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord

” My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
    Let every creature praise his holy name
    for ever and ever.”

NIV Psalm 145:21; KJV Psalm 145:21

Read Psalm 145

I WILL PRAISE MY LORD

I will praise my Lord,

I will praise His Holy Name.

I will shout at the top of my voice:

My Lord is my rock.

I will praise my God,

I will praise His Love and Compassion.

I will proclaim to the world:

My God is my solid ground.

I will praise my Deliverer,

I will praise His Mercy and Grace.

I will sing all of my days:

My God is my loving Savior.

Lord I will praise Your Name

Eternal Life

“23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

NIV Romans 6:23

I am a sinner just like you and in a perfect and pure presence of God Our Creator, there is no place for sin. Where the light rules, there is no place for darkness. To be able to get rid of our darkness and eternally dwell in light, we need help. Divine help. We can’t do it on our own. We can be good, we can be kind, we can be loving, still there is a nature to us that is not perfect and not pure. Despite that, God LOVES US! He is merciful. He is just. He is good. Accept God’s gift today: Salvation and Eternal Life through Christ Jesus.

Read Romans 6

Let us return to the Lord

“Let us examine our ways and test them,
and let us return to the Lord.”

NIV Lamentations 3:40; KJV Lamentations 3:40

In times when I didn’t know God, I went through hard times and trials and it was so difficult to bear it all. I was breaking under the weight of problems and constant worries, many nights I cried myself to sleep and didn’t have much hope for the next day, much less for the future. I felt left alone and desperate until I found Jesus. Everything turned around for the better from that point on. It didn’t happen over night, but as I learned to trust God and pray and seek His will for my life, it made an enormous difference. This is my humble call to all of you out there who are struggling in any way. Examine your ways. Examine your heart. Is there something missing? Seek God. Invite Him into your heart, give it all to Him. Return to Him. You will feel the change in your spirit and in your heart. It will be joyous, uplifting and GOOD!

A Fortified Tower

” The name of the Lord is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.”

NIV Proverbs 18:10; KJV Proverbs 18:10

Read Proverbs 18

As a fairly new believer I am just amazed about the fact that our God is always there for us. Living without God and leaning on your own strength all the time is very hard. Going to the Source of all creation and love is essential to have a happy and purposeful life. All I want to say is just that I am so grateful that God has touched my heart and revealed His love and His grace to me. I am grateful for loving Christian people who have been (and still are) there for me and who have shown me with their actions Jesus’ love and compassion. I feel safe knowing that my God is there for me every second of my life. I run to Him every day, I thank Him, I praise His name. I am covered by His unfailing love.

Pure and Faultless Religion

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Sermons We See

(By Edgar A. Guest)

I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day;

I’d rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way.

The eye’s a better pupil and more willing than the ear,

Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear;

And the best of all the preachers are those who live their creeds,

For to see good put in action is what everybody needs.

.

I soon can learn to do it if you’ll let me see it done;

I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run.

And the lecture you deliver may be very wise and true,

But I’d rather get my lessons by observing what you do;

For I might misunderstand you and the high advice you give,

But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.

.

When I see a deed of kindness, I am eager to be kind.

When a weaker brother stumbles and a strong one stays behind

Just to see if he can help him, then the wish grows strong in me

To become as big and thoughtful as I know that friend to be.

And all travelers can witness that the best of guides today

Is not the one who tells them, but the one who shows the way.

.

One good person teaches many, we believe what we behold;

One deed of kindness noticed is worth forty that are told.

Who stands with those of honor learns to hold their honor dear,

For right living speaks a language which to every one is clear.

Though an able speaker charms me with their eloquence, I say,

I’d rather see a sermon than to hear one, any day.

Do not let your hearts be troubled

“1 Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

NIV John 14:1-4; KJV John 14:1-4

Our Savior’s message is clear and to the point. Have faith, believe and do not be troubled! You are taken care of! When the time is right He will come back and take you where He is. What a great message of Hope! One thing you are asked of – TO BELIEVE.

Many people have a hard time believing in God. I used to be one of them. I tried to explain everything with the mind, reason, logic and the facts. I had my heart locked away in a dark place. Once you let your heart out and let your heart lead the way, you will recognize God and you will see that He has been there all along, waiting for the right moment, waiting for your heart to be ready to receive Him and His Love. 

Read John 14

Going Home

Do you believe this?

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

NIV John 11:25-26; KJV John 11:25-26

The promise Jesus gives to Martha before he resurrects Lazarus is still the same and still valid! It is repeated throughout the Scriptures numerous times “WHOEVER LIVES BY BELIEVING IN ME WILL NEVER DIE.” Read it again!!! What a message of Hope did our Lord leave for the generations to come! So, do not fret, do not worry, just believe. The price for your redemption has already been paid. Believe in Jesus Christ, let Him into your heart, follow His commandments and be sure:  He Keeps His Promises! BELIEVE!

If we claim to be without sin…

“8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”

NIV 1 John 1:8-10; KJV 1 John 1:8-10

Today my prayer is that all that have been taught to be pure and without sin, may see the light of God and become aware that everyone is a sinner. I pray that all who believe their good works will make them deserving of the eternal life become aware that it will not. I pray that all who have hope but they are not quite sure if God will have mercy on them, become aware that they don’t have to doubt anymore. To all who have recognized themselves in all of the above: Jesus died to pay the price for our sins. Our hope and assurance is in Him. Believing in Him cleanses our sins, makes us pure and deserving of eternal life in Heaven. There is no other way.
