Parched and Weary

“Heavenly Father, I thank you for waking me up with a sound mind thirsting to get my day started in You. Lord, I thank you for shaking my soul to cry out in prayer for the precious sheep that are dearly loved by Thee. Lives are living in despair, hopelessness, bondage and fear. This is not how You would have us to live. Day in and day out we can choose You! Day in and day out we can choose to have our thirst quenched from the pain and sorrow, the anger and frustration that we endure from this old world. Father, I don’t want to see your people give up. I do not want to see them live in mental torture. Our physical bodies shall perish one day but Lord our minds can be kept in You. I know this to be true. Hallelujah!! I am standing on faith that those who are parched and weary come to You. I pray that no matter what life brings that we can find the strength to crawl and receive rest, regain a new strength, a peace of mind of mind just beyond the river. Jesus, Your precious Son, is waiting for us! This is our hope. He is our Hope. We will not be left nor forsaken. It is time to come. It is time to stop trying to do things on our own. We need you Lord. We need you right now. May the lame, the deaf, the leper, the sinner, the prisoner, the one fighting addiction, the one who is trapped in their mind come. Let all who are sick and in need of a Savior come. He’s waiting to take us in His arms to love on us and heal us. Just beyond the river we will find rest. Thank you Father God for waking me up and stirring my spirit to call on You. Not just for myself and my family within my walls but for all of Your children around the world who are crying out and are lost. Receive my prayers this day O Lord in the mighty name of Jesus I pray, Amen.”

Jesus says: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV)

My fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, I come lifting you up in prayer praying for your strength and steadfastness in the Lord to be a light in this world sharing the love of Jesus with many. Pray for the nations, pray for the hearts that have turned away from the Lord for whatever reason. Pray for yourselves that you would not lose hope on your own journey with Christ. Though we all grow a little weary and parched at times we know where to go. Jesus is our eternal rest and peace. He will quench our thirst when we are running low. This is a time of refreshing! Let us all follow through with the purpose that God gave each of us. Let us feed His sheep. This is His will. We would not be where we are today had it not been for someone sharing the Gospel with us however it came to us. He chose us so let us show our love and faithfulness back to Him out of obedience and draw men unto Him for salvation, peace and rest in Christ Jesus. Much love to you I send this day,

Terra

“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14 KJV)

A Disturbing Message By Duncan Campbell

“This is what our age needs, not an easy-moving message, the sort of thing that makes the hearer feel all nice inside, but a message profoundly disturbing. We have been far too afraid of disturbing people, but the Holy Spirit will have nothing to do with a message or with a minister who is afraid of disturbing. You might as well expect a surgeon to give place to a quack who claims to be able to do the job with some sweet tasting drug, as expect the Holy Spirit to agree that the tragic plight of human souls today can be met by soft and easy words.

Calvary was anything but nice to look at, blood-soaked beams of wood, a bruised and bleeding body, not nice to look upon. But then Jesus was not dealing with a nice thing; He was dealing with the sin of the world, and that is what we are called upon to deal with today. Soft and easy words, soft-pedaling will never meet the need.”


Oh Glorious Day

Do we deserve the sacrifice that Jesus made for us? No, nothing we have done or ever can do will justify that sacrifice. And yet He gave it for us! Oh just to have the faith of the woman who touched the robe of our Lord.

Casting Crowns - Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)

Lyrics:

One day when Heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a Virgin
Dwelt among men, my example is He

Word became flesh and the light shined among us
His glory revealed

Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day

One day they led Him up Calvary‘s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He

Hands that healed nations, stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me

‘Cause living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore

Death could not hold Him
The grave could not keep Him from rising again

Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day
Glorious day

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day, my beloved one bringing
My Savior Jesus is mine

Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day
Glorious day, oh, glorious day

God Is Gathering His People (via Samuel at Gilgal)

God Is Gathering His People Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. (Ephesians 1:2-3) Think about these verses and the blessings we are told of here. The home of a Christian is in heaven. It may be difficult to see this sometimes but our home is where Christ is. We m … Read More
