Praise the Lord ~ Hillsong United: Even When It Hurts

Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
~ Psalm 150

Though the clouds come and storms rage around you–Praise the Lord. Though life beats you up and tries to destroy you–Praise the Lord. Though the tides may wash over, bringing pain–Praise the Lord. Though grief overwhelms and sorrow surrounds–Praise the Lord. Though death may come and life just hurts–Praise the Lord. PRAISE be to God for he is working all things for your good, that you may obtain eternal life and righteousness! There is nothing in this world that can separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39), nothing that can cause him to leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8), nothing that can take His love away from you! Praise God!

Seek and You Will Find!

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
~ Jeremiah 29:13

Seek_and_You_Shall_Findsm

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
“So do not worry about tomorrow;
for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
~ Matthew 6:33-34

IF….

If you seek Me, you will find Me
If you ask, I will give to you freely
If you knock, the door will be opened to you
If you desire, I will be in all that you do
If you examine, My truth you will find
If you trust, know that you will be refined
If you follow, my abundant blessings will flow
If you listen, you will hear Me wherever you go
If you challenge, you will rise above
If you pursue, you will feel My love
If you pray, My answer you will receive
If you claim, My freedom I will give
If you serve, in life you will rejoice
If you rest, you will hear My quiet voice
If you praise, a cheerful heart you will possess
If you love, you will find true happiness
If you hope, deep joy you will develop
If you surrender, My peace will envelop

All my love and may you seek God first in all that you do, for when He is the center of your life, all else falls into place.  May the God of peace, mercy, and grace hold you in His arms now and always!  ❤

Holy Spirit ~ Francesca Battistelli

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, LORD.
~ Psalm 89:15 ~

Oh, to praise the Lord heart and soul!
Tis the sweetest gift!

It has been a while since I have had some time to sit and enjoy the pleasure of writing! Somehow life just gets busy and time escapes me. Nonetheless, God has blessed me with some time to touch base and share a beautiful song from Newsboys! May this be the mantra of every Christian and may the movement of Christ bring hope and light to a world filled with despair and darkness.

All my love ❤

Lord You Are

I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
May my meditation be sweet to Him;
I will be glad in the LORD.
May sinners be consumed from the earth, and the wicked no more.
Bless the LORD, O my soul!
Praise the LORD!
Psalm 104:33-35

Igniting passion in my heart for more of You
