Do you remember the first time?

she remembers the first time
As the crowd looked on
With hate in their eyes, their hearts full of self-righteous indignation
His head was bent as he wrote in the sand
and when He looked up, she saw love in His eyes
feeling unworthy she looked down
and saw he had written 'forgiven'

he remembers the first time
the toil the night before with no results
there was something about the way He spoke
the authority in His words, the passion in His heart
the greatest miracle that day didn't have anything to do with fish
for when He changed his name
he knew he would never be the same

she remembers the first time
there had been so many people
pushing and shoving
trying to get close to Him
but not understanding His power
though frightened, she surged forward to touch Him
and she experienced His healing

i remember the first time
His first words
I imagined the look in His eyes
as He said to me
"Come just as you are,
You don't have to be afraid anymore
I love you with an everlasting love"

What about you? Do you remember your first time? It's easy to get caught up with the hustle and bustle of life and forget it's not about religion but relationship. You can't help knowing the Lord without loving Him. He's just that type of person. Encounters with Him don't always come with peals of thunder and bouts of lightening but we can always make them memorable. Leave the place of prayer today with something special in your heart and keep it with you as you go through the day.

Don't forget to keep smiling

Remain blessed and highly favoured

More than

Peace is more than calm
it is a rest of mind
in the midst of the storm
Joy is more than laughter
it is dancing
for my miracle even when it hasn't shown up yet
Love is more than a feeling
it is the knowing
that we are in this together through thick and thin
Faith is more than just belief
it is standing
even when circumstances want to knock me down
Praise is more than singing
it is rejoicing
in any which way because of who God is to me
Prayer is more than speaking
it is superimposing
the will of God over the will of man
Life is more than the acquisition of stuff
it is about what we have done
whom we have served and why we will be missed when we leave
Hi everyone,
Hope you are having a swell weekend! Just wanted to put down some lines although for some strange reason, I can't get the formatting right so that 3 lines form a paragraph. Anyways, in keeping with 7/7/07 I decided to have only 7 verses, however I just noticed that the number 7 occurs 3 times in the date as well so 7 verses x 3 lines! Today is the seventh day of the seventh month of the seventh year. 7=Perfection and 3=completion so I'm believing and trusting God with you that there will be a perfect completion to the issues and situations that you may be facing.
Don't worry about how big it is, God is bigger and we will surely have cause to look back and smile and celebrate because we serve a miracle working God. Not only will we finish what we have started with Him but we shall finish well.
Remain blessed and highly favoured
N.B Please do suggest a title!

Love is........

She asked the question...Is love enough?

Love is the twinkle in your eyes when I show up, the smile on your face when you hear my name

Love is in your words when I am discouraged and you gently remind me of who I really am, that I'm made of tougher stuff

Love is when you hear past beyond the words to how I feel and even understanding what the silence means

Love is when I place my head on your chest and I can feel your heart beats just for me

Love is when I'm tired of the journey and you place my hand in yours and when I'm really weary, you give me a piggy back ride

Love is when I make mistakes, you open your arms to receive me when I come back home

Love is when I go to bed at night and you are there, i wake up and i can feel the breath of your presence

Love is in your giving. Your willingness to lose everything and to take the pain, shame and humiliation that was mine so that we could be together forever

Everyday, I see the expression of your love. You let me know it's not a feeling, it's a doing. I'm really sorry because some days I take your love for granted but I know it cost you everything. I'm glad you chose me, there's so much to say but know this I love you, greater than anything and more than everything. Thank you for loving me in spite of and not only because of.

I love you and yes I think love is enough.

For God so loved the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son that whoever should believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16, capitals mine)

But God DEMONSTRATES His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)
