  1. Amen! This makes me think of one from Isaiah- The grass -----, the flower ----: but the word of our God shall ----
  2. @marvelloustime So nice of you to stop by, Becky. Slower than molasses turtle spotted this just now. Thanks so much for praying for us, sis.
  3. @Godismyloveforever Amen. Awaiting our new bodies God promised us. "He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control." (Phil 3:21) What a day that will be! Sorry for the chronic pain you suffer with, dear friend. I will pray for you. Thanks for praying for me and my kids. I love your new pic!!
  4. I am asking for prayer for healing. Today I woke up to lower back pain. It was so bad that I couldn't sit. Thank God- I found my old 'donut cushion' to put under me (One of those foam things with the center cut out to reduce pressure.) The pain is in the sacrum area. It's nice to have a place to turn when in need of prayer. Thanks.
  5. We stand upon Your precious promises. Your Word tells us that when the Enemy comes in like a flood, Your Spirit, O God will raise up a standard against him. We do not want to grieve You because we truly love You. We believe You will live in us and through us. We want to be Your yielded vessels. Though Satan attacks this site at times with false teachings and angry words arise...please enable the body of Christ gathered here to pray one for another and abound in encouragements. While at the same time not compromising the truths found in Your holy word. We thank you for these scriptures that instruct us. They are a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. Your Spirit will guide us into all truth. We praise you. In Jesus' Name, amen.
  6. Praise God!! @JustPassingThru How awesome our God is!! Nothing even comes close to the presence of the Lord. Thank you for sharing your experience so beautifully.
  7. To God be the glory! Great things He has done. "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure." (Phil 2:13)
  8. @JustPassingThru Excellent! I went over and watched several Terry Clark videos after reading your post. I came across one (a scripture song) from his Maranatha days. I posted it especially for you I hope you go over there to play it (and anyone else who is interested.) GBU. Here is the shortcut link to it.
  9. @JustPassingThru This one goes out especially to you because you mentioned Terry Clark in my Lyrics thread. After I read your post there, I went to YouTube to play some of his videos. I found one from back in his days with Maranatha. It is one of my favorite Bible promises. (In fact, it reminds me of yours from Jude 1:24. ) I thought you and others might enjoy this scripture song. "Being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ." (Phil 1:6)
  10. @BeauJangles I am sorry about you losing your beloved pets, brother. That was a shock and sorrow, I know. I commend you for going public with all of this. It will bring more prayer your way. It will also help you feel how much the body of Christ cares about you. When lonely and down, a support system from fellow believers is vital. Count me in as someone who will be here for you in prayer or any other way I can help. Just let me know.
  11. Amen. It is very comforting. This song has special meaning to me, too because it comes from one of the earliest Christian records I ever owned (1974) It was also my first introduction to Messianic music. I wore my Lamb records out! I love that they are heavily based on scripture. Many of the lyrics are pulled straight out of the Bible. Thanks for posting this wonderful song, Sonshine
  12. I just came from a thread titled "Dreadful TV Shows." I was sharing there about how important it is to put the right things before our eyes and in our thoughts. I mentioned a song that was written for a Bill Gaither children's recording but applies to any age. Below are the lyrics: CHORUS Input, output, what goes in is what comes out.. Input, output, That is what it’s all about. Input, output, Your mind is a computer whose Input, output daily you must choose. Let the Bible be your primary feed It’s got all the data you need. Talk to Jesus, all the time That’s the way that you can stay on line! If your print-out reads—to lie or cheat, There’s some data you should delete. Debug your mind of sinful bytes, Then you will operate all right! Who is in control?
  13. Some of you know that I loooove Christian music. Messianic is a favorite of mine and is mentioned in my profile interests. But I also started a thread called " Let us Lift Up The Name Of The Lord-Through Hymns." Then there is Jesus music (from the 1970's to 1980's.) It was the kind I grew up on in my early years of being saved. Keith Green, Petra, Phil Keaggy, etc. I appreciate some of the newer music, too. Recently, I was thinking about how lyrics have the ability to really get you to thinking. They are like mini sermons, in a way. They can deal with important messages ranging from abortion to suicide and everything inbetween. Sometimes a short, but hard hitting message set to music can make more of an impact that a sermon that is soon forgotten. (no offense to sermons, of course. )Plus, you play songs over and over so you often memorize the words in the process. The thing about songs is they are catchy and so they stick in your head. I know some don't care for the contemporary sounds. I understand your convictions and we all have unique tastes in styles. The purpose for this thread is not to debate that. But rather to share Christian song LYRICS that have left an impact on our lives. So I will post a few that speak to me and hope maybe they will do the same to you. I would likewise appreciate hearing some of yours. I hope and pray this thread will be thought-provoking, in a good sort of way. Thanks for putting up with my lol long-winded intro.
  14. @Sower Well said. This is an interesting way to look at it. And so true. Thanks for posting it. My favorite 'go-to verse' about viewing habits (ranging from what you watch to what you read/pictures in magazines) is Psalms 101:3 “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.” I agree with our brother King David in that scripture. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. If we don't bother watching (or reading/looking at) junk in the first place, we won't have to deal with the fallout (of images we'll regret later. OR the need to deprogram our minds from the world's corrupt agendas/worldviews.) I think of it as what has been described as "garbage in/garbage out." What we see/hear is bound to affect us to some degree. Our minds are like a computer taking in data and filing it away to access later. This was captured well in the lyrics of a song especially for children, but applies to all people. It is called "Input/Output (The Computer Song.) I will be posting the words into a separate thread I'm starting...called Lyrics that pack a punch (songs with messages that matter.) I hope some of you will visit and enter hard hitting/important lyrics from Christian songs you know in it. GBU.
