For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love towards those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:11-12
walkthesame:

I am Alive
Christ was tortured, hung on a cross and shut in a tomb but no worldly transgression could stop the power of God. In three days (as He promised) He rose again showing that anything of this world was powerless against Him.
Did you know that Christ lives in you? Yes He does and what that means for each of us as followers of Christ is that, nothing of this world can overpower us when we have Christ on our side. We are able to live just as we are today because Christ lives in the midst of us. We are never alone and we don’t have to be afraid. 
Nothing remains hidden from the sight of God. He knows it all!

You have listened to fears, child,” said Aslan. “Come, let me breathe on you. Forget them. Are you brave again?
C.S. Lewis, Prince Caspian (via cattedrali)

Overcoming fears

Some fears can rob us of our confidence and fulfilling God’s purpose for us, like the fear of being different, the fear of looking foolish or the fear of what your friends think of you. But God has a purpose for each one of us as He says in Ephesians 2:10 and we shouldn’t let fears get in the way.

Take the story of David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17. Goliath was the voice of fear, stopping the Israelites’ purpose for victory. The Israelites were scared, and fear robbed them of their purpose. But in verse 26, David says: “Who is this Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” Why should fears stop us fulfilling out God given purpose? David knows that God will help him in the next battle. It was in the unseen place that he learnt the battle cry of trust, when he was looking after sheep: “The Lord who delivered me from the law of the lion and from the law of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this philistine.” If we learn to start trusting God with little things, then when big battles come our way we’ll already know how to fully rely on God. Finally, Jesus says in John 12:27 that his soul is “deeply troubled” but He still wants to glorify God. He will not let fear cripple his faith. May we all follow Jesus’ example and seek to glorify God however we are feeling, and not let fears rob us of our God-given purpose.

Stop making people discipleship projects and make them brothers and sisters
"There’s no place I’d rather be, than here in your love, here in your love"

"There’s no place I’d rather be, than here in your love, here in your love"

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Jesus - Light of the World

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)

Bring your darkness to Jesus. The darkness can never ever extinguish the light. Follow the light that Jesus can bring into your life. Often we don’t like following, we just like receiving. Press into Jesus and move on closer to him.

Follow Jesus.

help find God’s lost children

God’s heart is broken over a lost generation. He wants people’s hearts because he loves them. He wants to see the lost get found. He isn’t angry and doesn’t want us to be angry, he wants us to help find his lost children, so we should never abandon the search.

Everyone knows what the church is against, but let’s tell them what we’re for.

Love.

It’s so easy for me to read about all that is going on in Iraq and condemn those terrorists, with it never even crossing my mind that they could be saved. But the thing is, what they are now is just the same as what I was. Yes, me, the good, church-going, moral little girl. I was a sinner in need of a saviour, and that is exactly what they are. My sin, along with theirs, nailed Jesus to the cross, and I was guilty before God, just like they are. So please, when you hear about and pray for that situation, don’t be self-righteous and don’t write these persecutors off as “too bad to be saved”. Instead, pray for them, because they need a saviour just like you.

'But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you’

- Matthew 5v44

preach it sista, so convicting

Funny how we pridefully thought we are the ones seeking after God when He is truly the One who has been chasing after us.

Reign us in You, O Lord.
