You are more than brave, You’re Courageous…the sea-parting, giant defeating kind. Oh, it may not feel that way in the day to day…but it’s true. Praying you always hear that often and just keep being change-the-world You– Jaime Jamgochian
1 You, God, are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
where there is no water.
2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.
9 Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
and become food for jackals.
11 But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God will glory in him,
while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
Like a rushing wind
Jesus breathe within
Lord have Your way
Lord have Your way in me
Like a mighty storm
Stir within my soul
Lord have Your way
Lord have Your way in me
What’s Inside Your Heart?
How do we size up other people? What do we do to get ahead in this world? Many times, we judge by the way we dress, talk, carry ourselves. Do we have the right accent? Did we come from an exclusive school? People look at the model of our cellphone, the brand on our bags and T-shirts. Is it a designer label? Is the real thing or imitation? They check out the kind of car we drive and where we park it for the night—in an exclusive neighborhood, in a classy condominium?
We live in a world of sham and show, sell and tell. Keeping up can be tiresome, time-consuming and expensive. And what we project can be far from what we really are inside.
Maybe that is why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came into our world without fanfare and in such humble circumstances. He shared his nursery with goats, sheep and donkeys. He grew up in a tiny town called Nazareth, definitely the wrong address to choose in Israel. One apostle was quoted as saying, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” His father, Joseph, was a working-class Jew, a carpenter, and he too was trained as a laborer. Several of His closest friends were uneducated fishermen with rough, calloused hands.
Christ’s true Kingdom is glorious, beyond anything we can imagine. But perhaps he came so humbly to show the world what it had become: boastful, shallow, materialistic, hypocritical.
He also came to give us the real thing—true wealth, prestige, power and influence as children of the living God. What we really are will only be revealed when He comes again.
When Jesus returns as King of Kings to Israel, he won’t judge us by how high up in our career we managed to get, how famous or popular we have become, or how we multiplied our money into millions. He is going to check out if we truly loved God and one another. So let’s focus our lives on that. Let’s not waste time looking good on the outside, buying things for show, winning the applause of men. As the Lord says in 1 Samuel 16:7, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Be blest with a heart that is faithful and full of God’s love!
but if from thence you shall seek the Lord your God, you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and soul. (Deut. 4:29)
The more i seek You,
the more i find You.
The more i find You,
the more I love You
I wanna sit at Your feet
drink from the cup in Your hand.
Lay back against You and breath,
hear Your heart beat
This love is so deep,
it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in Your peace, it’s overwhelming.
For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don’t know which is better.I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me.But for your sakes, it is better that I continue to live.
— Philippians 1:21-26
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
