I’ve always appreciated the honesty of Thomas. It mattered not when he heard the reports of others who had seen Jesus face to face the morning he rose from the grave. This doubting disciple wanted proof, and declared he would not believe unless he could see the nail prints in … Continue reading →
When clouds hover near, and threaten to hide
the beauty of His Grace,
I will remember:
Clouds Are the Dust of His Feet
If clouds are the dust of your feet, I lift my arms in praise, while tears pour out, cleansing the dust around my heart. If clouds are the dust of your feet, let me climb the mountain-top with you… hidden from man, but seen through the eyes of my Father. No whirlwind or storm can separate from your love. Draw me near, up close, for it’s at your feet I find mercy and grace. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and the storm,
and clouds are the dust of His feet.
(Nahum 1: 3b)
They placed a crown of thorns
on His head, forcing Him to carry
His cross up Golgotha’s hill.
The perfect Son of God, cocooned
in human flesh; nailed to the cruel
Cross of Calvary. “If He’s the Son of God, they mocked,
let Him come down and save Himself!
Jesus could have come down that day, yet He chose to stay and laid down His life
for you and me. Then as his life’s blood ebbed away, the Lamb of God cried out, “It is finished! Father into Your hands, I commit my spirit.”
Look beyond Calvary’s tree to the veil in the temple, torn from top to bottom,
making it possible for you and me to enter the Holy of Holies… The Most Holy
Place of the Living God.
He descended into hell. But wait! On the
third day, Jesus rose from the grave. Now
with the Godhead’s Glory fully returned,
Jesus appeared to the disciples and more
than 500 witnesses in His glorified body.
Forty days later, Jesus ascended back to heaven and left the message to go and
The Son of God has come down to man, revealed the love of the Father… made forgiveness and restoration possible. One day we shall know Him as He is. We will gaze upon His face, In the place He has prepared… A place in the Father’s eternal house. A new heaven and earth… No more tears, pain, sorrow, or death.
Do you know Whose you are? Have you been given the
privilege of being called God’s own? You can be. This is
the promise made possible by believing in the the good news of the Gospel. Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose again for you and me.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1: 12,13 NASB).
Not who I am but Whose I am I belong to the great I Am That I Am Immortal Invisible Eternal Only Wise God
Not what I’ve done but what He’s done for me for the world
Not where I live but where my Eternal Home is Not this is my home but heaven is my home
Not what I want but what He wants to love Him with all my heart my soul, my strength and my neighbor as myself
Not what I will but what He wills Not my reflection but His glory shining through a weak vessel
