Bethel Music – Anchor Lyrics

Artist: Bethel Music

Album: You Make Me Brave

Verse 1:
In every season, in every change
You are near
In every sorrow,
You are my strength
You are near

Pre-Chorus:
A peace in the storm
Your voice I will follow
In weakness I rise
Remembering You hold my world

Chorus:
I’m holding on to hope
I’m holding on to grace
I’m fully letting go
I’m surrendered to Your ways

The anchor for my soul
Father You will never change

I love You, I love You

Verse 2:
My great Redeemer,
My constant Friend
You are near
My faithful Father,
You took me in
You are near

Bridge:
I will remember Your promise forever
My Strength, my Defender
I can count on You
You are my Savior, My Hope and my Shelter
Your love is forever
I can count on You

Matthew West – Do Something

 

Bottoms Up June 6, 2014

Have you ever coaxed a sweaty, over-heated toddler from their play for a drink of water? One of three results usually occur:

A. They completely ignore you, silently declaring that what they are doing is more important.

B. Begrudgingly they take a swig, making it clear that it is only because they are forced.

C. They grab the cup with both hands, gulp noisily much of the water, and look at you breathlessly for admiration for obedience.

Obviously, you didn’t offer a drink for your own benefit…apart from your concern for their well-being. It was for their own good. Without water they can not function properly, will get sick, and eventually die. Your providing vital life-sustaining is an act of self-less love.

It is healthy growth where a child realizes that water is important, good for them, and a necessary part of life. Hopefully they will learn to quench their own thirst with H2O without someone waving a sippy cup and begging them to partake.

Consequently, we don’t do God any favors by connecting with him. It is a privilege. A vital, life-giving privilege. Enjoy it. Appreciate it.

Jesus Loves The Little Children

Jesus Loves The Little Children

What is it about kids and their simple faith? I am overwhelmed with a huge sense of responsibility as I teach these precious little ones about Jesus. They hang onto every word I say, and accept each new thought happily and completely.

Last week, I had 52 in my neighborhood Bible club. The most rewarding part of the day, however, was my translator. Wilguemps.

Church (8)

This genuine young man grew-up in our school and is now being used to reach kids just like himself.

???????????????????????????????

His younger brother listened to us intently as we talked of miracles and faith. He beamed with pride at his older brother, and I have great hope that he will follow in his steps.

Thank you, God, for loving the little children!
