This video has been around pretty long – but in case you haven’t watched it….go watch it! ^^

At the Cross: “…I know you love me.”

This is another all-time favorite song!

It is sang by Hillsong.

The way I feel this, it gives a sense of being loved and protected: an inseparable and  intimate relationship with Jesus.

It reveals His might in overcoming the grave; as well as His unconditional love for all the people.

It sure gives a sense of security: being protected and loved by God :)

At the Cross – Hillsong (more…)

“…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.


Second Chance

Second Chance by Hillsong United – check it out!

The first time I heard this song, the lyric and the melodies stayed in my mind for days ♥

I love the lyric; I love ALL the words there. But, I do have my favs, so here are some of them:

“So it’s with everything I am
I reach out for Your hand
The hope for change
The second chance I’ve gained”

“How could greater love than this
Ever possibly exist”

“Bearing the marks of His love”

“Where a little faith’s enough
To see mountains lift and move”

Isn’t it a wonderful song? :)

So here is the FULL lyric:

 

Second Chance – Hillsong United
You called my name
Reached out Your hand
Restored my life
And I was redeemed
The moment You entered my life

Amazing grace
Christ gave that day
My life was changed
When from my shoulders
Fell the weight of my sin

So it’s with everything I am
I reach out for Your hand
The hope for change
The second chance I’ve gained

On You I throw my life
Casting all my fears aside
How could greater love than this
Ever possibly exist

Consume my thoughts
As I rest in You
I’m now in love
With a Saviour
Bearing the marks of His love

So I’ll wait upon You now
With my hands released to You
Where a little faith’s enough
To see mountains lift and move

And I’ll wait upon You now
Dedicated to Your will
To this love that will remain
A love that never fails

 

 

 

 

 

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

God said NO

Hey guys,

I got this from an email from my mom (she got it from her friends)

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!

 

YOU HAVE TO image0018THIS!!!


God Said NO!!

 


I asked God to take away my habit.
image0021

God said, No.
image00310

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


image0046

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,
finally you have the idea.
