And I Know He Watches Me

This is, and will always be, a very special day for me. It is my dear grandmother’s birthday, and if she were still with us, she would have turned 100 years old today. She introduced me to Jesus as a young child, and has made a profound difference in my life, so I’m posting her favorite hymn in honor of her today. ” I love you Grandma, and I thank God that because of Jesus, and His precious sacrifice for us, I’ll see you again one beautiful day.”  :)

His Eye Is On The Sparrow 

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Loves Like A Hurricane

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh,

How He loves us, oh,
Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all

And we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about the way…

He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Mark McMillan

 

Hosanna!

“And they brought the colt to Jesus, and put their garments on Him; and He sat upon him.

And many spread their garments in the road: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strewed them in the way. And they that went before, and they that followed, cried saying, 

“HOSANNA; BLESSED IS HE THAT COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!”  Mark 11:7-10

No Weapon

No weapon formed against me
Shall prosper, it won’t work.

GOD will do what He said He will do
He will stand by His Word, He will come through

No weapon formed against me
shall prosper, it won’t work.

GOD will do what he said
He will do, He’s not a man ,that He should lie

He will come through

Oh, I won’t be afraid of the arrows by day,
From the hand of my enemy.
I will stand my ground with the LORD on my side
For the snares they have set will not succeed.

No weapon formed against me
Shall prosper, it won’t work.

Isaiah 54:17

Dress for Success

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God…”

Ephesians 6:10-18

I’m Just Sayin’

“If God be for us, who can be against us?”

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:28 and 38

I’m Sorry!

“Confess your faults one to another,and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

      James 5:16

Prayer and Fasting

“…If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

But this kind goes not out but by prayer and fasting.”

Matthew 17:20-21
