Devotional Thoughts

As we draw near to the Lord, He draws near to us, then as we spend time in His presence we become changed. He is holy, pure and compassionate. His heart is touched with our needs. To be in His presence is to touch Love.

 

Lord, help us to be close to You,
to be touched by Your love,
"Love divine, all loves excelling"!

 

Praying

Heart, Soul, Mind



Give me a humble heart, O God,

a heart that looks at You;

a heart that isn’t concerned with self

but keeps Your glory in view.

 

Fill my soul with love, O Lord,

the love that never fails;

the love that shares Your joy and peace

and all that this entails.

 
Give me a made up mind, O Lord,

a mind that is renewed;

a mind that thinks upon the things

that are lovely, pure and good

 
O may my praise and worship, Lord,

ascend to heaven’s throne

through daily living the life that pleases

You and You alone.

Hold Me

Hold me, Lord, enfold me, Lord

Embrace me from above

Lord, I come to meet with You

Expressing all my love

In worship ~ in Your presence

As I look upon Your face

My heart consoled, You make me whole

And I receive more grace

Devotional Thoughts

Jesus said that we should
"love God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind, and love our neighbour as ourself"
(Luke 10:27)

Jesus said:

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me"

(Revelation 3: 20 (NASB))

Devotional Thoughts

No matter what we are going through in life, we can be sure that there is a loving Saviour watching over us. He truly cares, so much more than we could even imagine. The Lord longs to show us the magnitude of His love. Just imagine, the King of kings, for Whom there was no room at the inn, for His birth on this earth, opening His heart's door to us. All we need to do is open our heart's door to Him .. and He WILL come in.
