Seek His Face Always

LookToTheLord-Ps105-4

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.

Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.
—Psalm 105:1-7

All Things Possible

AllThingsArePossible--Matt19-26As I’ve shared with you recently, life has been rough for me these days. I often feel like this is a new, never-ending season.

Lately I have often felt like I don’t have much to smile about. Those of you who have lived with a shingles breakout know what I mean. So many sleepless nights, or nights when I can only get a 1/2 hour to an hour’s sleep at a time. And that’s just the night! Days … hours … minutes … of seemingly relentless pain, but not “just” pain—we’re talking about pain accompanied by burning and stabbing sensations, and feeling like bugs are crawling on you. Since one of my big problem areas involves my left ear, inside and out, this kind of stuff repeatedly wakes me up from a sound sleep!

Well, I think I’ve made it through the roughest part of this outbreak. My case involves my trigeminal nerve area on the left sidetrigeminal-nerve of my face. If you look at me now, you can barely tell what’s going on inside of me. The blisters/lesions have almost completely disappeared, but there is still a lot happening to my nerves that can’t be seen. I started a steroid regimen yesterday that I hope will help get rid of the remaining pain and perhaps even keep me from having a recurrence in the future, as is common with shingles.

And yet, although I am not very good at smiling through the pain, God has filled me with such joy lately that I can’t help but smile. Take last night for example. I kept waking up with that nerve pain and itching, and had trouble getting back to sleep. The chorus of a wonderful praise song kept running through my mind, something that is short and sweet and easy for me to remember:

I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice
To worship you, Oh my soul rejoice!
Take joy, my King, in what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear…

I often silently sing myself to sleep with this chorus, but last night I was trying hard to remember the chorus to a different song I’ve been enjoying lately and just couldn’t remember it. I drifted off to sleep again for maybe 1/2 hour, and when I awoke there was that other chorus playing loud and sweetly in my head. I absolutely had to smile because God is so faithful and knew I wanted to remember the song so I could sing that one to Him too.

The song I tried so hard to remember and that the Lord blessed me with is “All Things Possible” by Mark Schultz. Here’s the chorus (technically the bridge, but it’s all the same to me):

My God is strong and mighty
My God is faithful
My hope is in the Lord
For He is able

Beloved, I am here today to remind you that our God is absolutely faithful and will provide exactly what we need exactly when we need it. All we need to do is hold on tight and trust that He is strong, mighty, faithful, able… and a host of other awesome adjectives!

Here’s the video of the Mark Schultz song, “All Things Possible”:

In case you have trouble viewing this video, here are the complete song lyrics:

All Things Possible

By Mark Schultz, from his latest album All Things Possible

I will call on Your name
For there’s always a way
When You lead me
And when life knocks me down
I am not counted out
For You’re with me
And You’re with me

Chorus:
Even when it feels like the light is fading
And I’ve lost my way
Still I’m holding on to the One who’s making
All things possible

Even when it feels like my heart is breaking
Hold on, there is strength
Knowing I belong to the One who’s making
All things possible

I know mountains can move
I’ve seen what You can do
In my weakness
So my heart will believe
If I wait I will see
My God doing, what only He can do

Bridge:
My God is strong and mighty
My God is faithful
My hope is in the Lord
For He is able

Smile, Beloved! I’m singing this for all of us today!

Mighty to Save

Happy Sunday!

Zeph3-17-a-new-day

If you haven’t yet heard the song, “Mighty to Save,” you will really be blessed by this today. The lyrics are wonderful and Michael W. Smith’s rendition is my favorite. Please enjoy this video of Michael W. Smith’s “A New Hallelujah” version of this from one of his concerts.

Here are the lyrics in case you have trouble viewing the video:

Mighty To Save

by Michael W. Smith

Faith is rising tonight
Faith is rising tonight
Faith is rising tonight

Everyone needs compassion, a love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness, the kindness of a savior
The hope of nations, yeah, everyone

Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave, yeah

So take me as You find me, all my fears and failures
And fill my life again
I give my life to follow everything I believe in
Now I surrender, now I surrender

Savior, savior, He can move the mountains
Our God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave

Savior, savior, He can move the mountains
Our God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave

Shine Your light, shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King
Jesus shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King

Savior, savior, He can move the mountains
Our God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave

Savior, savior, He can move the mountains
Our God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave

Shine Your light, shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King
Jesus shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King

Shine Your light, shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King
Jesus shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King

A lot to celebrate tonight

Shine Your light, shine Your light on me, shine Your light on me
Shine Your light on me, shine Your light on me
Shine Your light, shine Your light on me, shine Your light on me
Shine Your light on me, shine Your light on me

And all God’s people said… AMEN!

Mighty in Power

Saturday Praises


.

O Lord God of hosts, who is like You, O mighty Lord?
Your faithfulness also surrounds You. —Psalm 89:8

,

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.  —Isaiah 9:6

.

Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” —Revelation 19:6-7

.

Our Mighty LORD!

Lift up your heads, O gates!
    And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord, strong and mighty,
    the Lord, mighty in battle!
Lift up your heads, O gates!
    And lift them up, O ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.

—Psalm 24:7-9

O Lord God of hosts,
    who is mighty as you are, O Lord,
    with your faithfulness all around you?
You rule the raging of the sea;
    when its waves rise, you still them.

—Psalm 89:8-9

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
    praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
    praise him with lute and harp!

—Psalm 150:1-3

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

—Isaiah 9:6
