Mighty to Save

I LOVE this song!

This is from Hillsong – it is definitely one of my favorite songs ♥

The way I feel it, this song gives a sense of hope as well as elaborating the greatness of God.

To tell you the truth, I LOVE all words in the lyric. But if I had to choose, the refrain is my fav:

“Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave”

So here’s the complete lyric:

Mighty to Save – Hillsong

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and
Let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
Jesus

“…it sure makes a lost boy feel safe.”

Hey guys, I just got this today

and personally I found this to be very heartwarming.

The title of the post is a little section I took from this story.

It’s worth reading, so READ it :)

Hope you like it as much as I do ^^

 


John 3:16

A little boy was selling newspapers on the corner,

the people were in and out of the cold.


The little boy was so cold that he wasn’t trying to sell  many papers.


He walked up to a policeman and said,

“Mister, you wouldn’t happen to know where a poor boy

could find a warm place to sleep tonight would you?


You see, I sleep in a box up around the corner there and

down the alley and it’s awful cold in there for tonight.


Sure would be nice to have a warm place to stay.”


The policeman looked down at the little boy and said, “You

go down the street to that big white house and you knock

on the door. When they come out the door you just say

John 3:16, and they will let you in.”


So he did. He walked up the steps and knocked on the

door, and a lady answered. He looked up and said,

“John 3:16.” The lady said, “Come on in, Son.”


She took him in and she sat him down in a split bottom

rocker in front of a great big old fireplace, and she went

off. The boy sat there for a while and thought to himself:

John  3:16  .   I don’t understand   it, but it sure makes a

cold boy warm.


Later she came back and asked him “Are you hungry ? “

He said, “Well, just a little.. I haven’t eaten in a couple of

days, and I guess I could stand a little bit of food,”


The lady took him in the kitchen and sat him down to a table

full of wonderful food. He ate and ate until he couldn’t eat

any more.. Then he thought to himself:

John !  3:16  .Boy, I sure don’t understand it but it sure

makes a hungry boy full.


She took him upstairs to a bathroom to a huge bathtub

filled with warm water, and he sat there and soaked for a

while. As he soaked, he thought to himself: John 3:16

I sure don’t understand it, but it sure makes a dirty boy

clean. You know, I’ve not had a bath, a real bath, in my

whole life. The only bath I ever had was when I stood in

front of that big old fire hydrant as they flushed it out.

The lady came in and got him.. She took him to a room,

tucked him into a big old feather bed , pulled the covers

up around his neck, kissed him goodnight and turned out

the lights. As he lay in the darkness and looked out the

window at the snow coming down on that cold night,

he thought to himself: John  3:16 …I don’t understand it but

it sure makes a tired boy rested.


The next morning the lady came back up and took him

down again to that same big table full of food. After he

ate, she took him back to that same big old split bottom

rocker in front of the fireplace and picked up

a big old Bible.


She sat down in front of him and looked into his young face.

“Do you understand John    3:16  ?” she asked gently. He

replied, “No, Ma’am, I don’t.. The first time I ever heard it

was last night when the policeman told me to use it,”

She opened Th e Bible to John  3:16  and began to explain

to him about Jesus. Right there, in front of that big old fireplace,

he gave his heart and life to Jesus. He sat there

and thought: John  3:16  — don’t understand it, but it sure

makes a lost boy feel safe.


You know, I have to confess   I don’t understand   it either,

how God was willing to send His Son to die for me, and how

Jesus would agree to do such a thing.   I don’t understand

the agony of the Father and every angel in heaven as

they watched Jesus suffer and die.   I don’t understand   the intense

love for ME that kept Jesus on the cross till the end.

I don’t understand   it, but it sure does make life worth living..


John  3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only

begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should

not perish, but have everlasting life.


Big Daddy Weave – Everytime I breathe

Guys, check this out!

A song sang by Big Daddy Weave.

It has a really good music with wonderful lyrics!

I don’t think I can quote one of my favorite lyrics since I like them all – yes, I seriously do.

I find the lyrics to be very true and heart-warming.

 

BIG DADDY WEAVE – EVERYTIME I BREATHE

I am sure all of heaven’s heard me cry
As I tell You all the reasons why
This life is just too hard

But day by day
Without fail
I’m finding everything I need
And everything that You are
To me

Chorus:
Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never want to leave
I want to stay in Your warm embrace
Oh basking in the glory shining from Your face
And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart
I realize it’s true
That You are so marvelous God
And I am so in love with You

Now how could I after knowing One so great
Respond to You in any way
That’s less than all I have to give
But by Your grace I want to love You not with what
I say
But everyday
In a way that my life is lived

Chorus:
Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never want to leave
I want to stay in Your warm embrace
Oh basking in the glory shining from Your face
And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart
I realize it’s true
That You are so marvelous God
And I am so in love with You

Wrapped in Your mercy I want to live and never leave
I am held by how humble
Yet overwhelmed by Your majesty
Captured by grace and now I’m finding
I am free
You are marvelous God
And knowing You is everything

Winner Quotes

Hey guys :)

Here are some quotes:

Sorry, I don’t have time to make a Power Point slideshow right now >.<

Hope these quotes will motivate and inspire you!

 

There is a millionaire inside of you…you decide who wins.” — Doug Firebaugh



“My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose — somehow we win out.” — Ronald Reagan



Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning. | Denis Waitley



The winner is one who can defeat himself first, the one who has enough courage and strength to face himself, and to make the first and the hardest step when no one expect it.



Only winner knows that route to victory is long and hard, with lot of suffering and sadness… but he is also deliberated how warm is that light waiting for him at the end of the tunnel, worth to fight and live for. With tears in his eyes and wounds on his heart, winner rushes ahead and never counts his steps and victories. Winner always carries deep inside himself story of Daedalus and Icarus, and doesn’t fly too high towards the Sun, and too low towards the sea. Only the ones with big hearts win, the ones who give hand to better one as well to fallen one, the one who can believe in visions and who can hear impossible, the one who has enough courage to observe existing coasts. Winner inside ourselves sleeps and awaits to be awaken by the bells…



God said NO

Hey guys,

so I couldn’t give credit to the one who made this – but just to make it clear, I do not own this.

I posted this cuz I think it’s really cute – not only that, it also contains some truth that we have already known.

So hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

God Said NO!!

 


I asked God to take away my habit.

God said, No.

It is not for me to take away,
but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.

 

I asked God to grant me patience.
image0059
God said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
it isn’t granted, it is learned.


I asked God to give me happiness.
image0065
God said, No.

I give you blessings;
Happiness is up to you.


I asked God to spare me pain.
image00712
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from
worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.


image0082

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.


I asked God for all things
that I might enjoy life.

God said, No.
I will give you life,
so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said… Ahhhh,
