Is there anyone in your life that you truly believe in?

How about yourself? Do you believe you are capable of achieving all you want to achieve? We must believe in ourselves, that we can do all tasks we set before ourselves. After all if we don’t believe in ourselves, who will?

 

Isaiah 53:4-5 – (NKJV)

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

Do you feel healed today?

I guess for many, we will not be feeling very “healed” today maybe because we’re suffering some physical or emotional illness, or facing some uncertainties in your life. However you are feeling though, I want to remind you today that we are healed!

Still Believe by Kim Walker Smith

Your blood makes the deaf to hear right now
Your blood takes away the curse right now
Your blood heals every disease right now
Your blood sets the addict free right now

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

Your blood mends the broken heart right now
Your blood compels me to forgive right now
Your blood transforms my mind right now
Your blood brings the dead to life right now

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

You’re the higher power
Darkness cannot stand
No longer bound to sin, I am free

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

Oh, all that I need
You are all that I need, Jesus
Your blood is enough for me
Oh, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, yeah

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

All I need
Come cover us right now
Come cover us Jesus
The blood, it opens deaf ears
The blood, breaks down disease
In Your presence, God, it has no place,
Pain has no place, disease has no place, sickness has no place
Weariness has no place, depression has no place
In Your presence, God, In Your presence, Jesus
We find all we need, we find all we need, we find all we need
In Your presence, Jesus
Oh, Jesus, all we need, is in You, Jesus
We believe, we believe, we believe
Tell Him tonight, tell Him tonight
Say I believe, I believe
Sing out in your words tonight
Let faith rise, let faith rise
Tell Him tonight
I believe, I believe You are who You say You are
You are the one who sees me, You’re the one who’s for me
You’re the one who knows me, every hair on my head
You created me, how You love me
You’re the one who has abundant help, abundant light for me
You’re the one who has joy for me, Jesus
I believe, I believe, I believe
You are all I need
I believe, I believe, I believe
Oh, with all my heart, with all I am, even when I cannot see
I will stand with faith and I will believe
Oh, I believe, I believe, yeah

I believe, I believe
I will never stop believing
I believe, You are more than enough for me, God
I will not fear, I will not fear
Cause I believe
I believe

Last night I was doing some work in the house and had some random music playing in the background, when I was aware of a particular song playing, as it stopped me in my tracks! Why? Because it summed up just how I’m feeling…

Be Strong by Delta Goodrem

Are you swimming upstream in oceans of blue?
Do you feel like you’re sinking?
Are you sick of the rain after all you’ve been through?
Well, I know what you’re thinking

When you can’t take it
You can make it
Sometime soon I know you’ll see

‘Cause when you’re in your darkest hour
And all of the light just fades away
And when you’re like a single flower
Whose colours have turned to shades of grey
Well, hang on and be, be strong

We’re taking each step one day at a time
You can’t lose your spirit
Let live and let live, forget and forgive
And it’s all how you see it

And just remember, keep it together
Don’t you know you’re never alone?

‘Cause when you’re in your darkest hour
And all of the light just fades away
When you’re like a single flower
Whose colours have turned to shades of grey
Well, hang on, oh, be strong

No, you’re not defeated, oh
And soon you’ll be smiling once again
Then you won’t have to feel it, let it go with the wind
Time passes us by
And know that you’re allowed to cry

‘Cause when you’re in your darkest hour
And all of the light just fades away
When you’re like a single flower
Whose colours have turned to shades of grey
Well, hang on, oh, and be strong

Oh oh, hang on, hang on
Hang on, be strong
Hold on and be strong

Having said this is how I’m feeling, I can say that while now may feel like my darkest hour, I am confident this is temporary because I know God is with me, will keep me strong, and will get me through these difficult days.

Whatever you’re facing, be strong, because God is with you!

My favourite line from this song is definitely:

Don’t you know you’re never alone?

 

 

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

It can be difficult to cope with life sometimes, can’t it? However, I believe that no matter what problems and difficulties we have to face in life, we will be free from pain, heartache, sorrows and problems  and all our tears will be wiped away when we meet God face to face.

So hold on to God, because He can wipe away all your tears.

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth,
that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew

But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

I know the journey seems so long
You feel your walking on your own
But there has never been a step
Where you’ve walked out all alone

Troubled soul don’t lose your heart
Cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty that’s in store
Outweighs the hurt of life’s sting

I can’t wait until that day where the very one I’ve lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced
To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame and misery this is why this is why I sing….

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face

There will be a day, He’ll wipe away the stains, He’ll wipe away the tears, He’ll wipe away the tears…..there will be a day.

 

Restore me

thank-you-god-for-taking-what-a-mess-my-life-can-be-and-turning-it-around-i-have-faith-and-believe-with-my-whole-heart-and-soul-that-you-my-lord-will-restore-me-and-make-me-be

Just as it says above, no matter how much of a mess your life may seem, it can be fixed – All we have to do  is trust God, because will help sort your life out.

Believe! God can and will help you become who you were meant to be.

Some question whether God exists, whether Jesus really was His son, and even whether he died to save us.

Some question how we can love someone we’ve never met, how we can put our faith and trust in Him just.

Have you ever questioned God’s existence?

I love the following song by Nicole Nordeman where she asks the questions non-believers may be asking, but then asks them what if they, the non-believers, are wrong, that God does exist, and He does love us…

I have questioned God’s existence in the past, but every time I’ve done that, God proves to me again and again that He exists, and He loves and cares for me. So yes, there is hope because God does exist, and He loves every one of us.

What If by Nicole Nordeman

What if you’re right
And He was just
Another nice guy

What if you’re right
What if it’s true
They say the cross
Will only make a fool of you
And what if it’s true

What if He takes His place in history
With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love and came in peace
But then the story ends, what then

But what if you’re wrong
What if there’s more
What if there’s hope
You never dreamed of hoping for

What if you jump
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you
Catch you by surprise
What if He’s more
Than enough what if it’s love

What if you dig
Way down deeper
Than your
Simple-minded friends

What if you dig
And what if you find
A thousand more
Unanswered questions down inside
That’s all you find

What if you pick apart the logic
And begin to poke the holes
What if the crown of thorns is no more
Than folklore that must be told and retold

But what if you’re wrong
What if there’s more
What if there’s hope
You never dreamed of hoping for

What if you jump
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you
Catch you by surprise
What if He’s more
Than enough what if it’s love

‘Cause you’ve been running
As fast as you can
And you’ve been looking
For a place you can land
For so long but what if you’re wrong

What if you jump
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you
Catch you by surprise
What if He’s more
Than enough what if it’s love
What if it’s love

Wow, isn’t that  a great way of reminding us that when we put our trust in God, we can get through anything and everything.

Believe and be strong!

Do you think it means something if a phrase occurs numerous times in the bible?

How about this…

fearless

Do you think it’s just a coincidence that we’re told not to be afraid 365 times in the bible? I don’t, and therefore I trust God to help me overcome my fears each day.

Be fearless, believe in God every day of every year.

If you believe in a God who controls the big things, you have to believe in a God who controls the little things.  It is we, of course, to whom things look ‘little’ or ‘big’ ~ Elisabeth Elliot

I believe, do you?

believe

Every year at this time of year we hear the word “belief” mentioned a lot, but sadly it’s more often than not in relation to Santa, than about Christ. I find it very sad that so many in this world have never known the true love of Christ for themselves. If ever I need a remind of what God needs and wants me to do in my life, to tell other about Him and His love for us, this is the reminder I need.

In the last few weeks when I’ve been out at various Christmas events with Bellshill Salvation Army Band, I’ve been challenged each time one of our band, Daniel McMillan, has song the beautiful song, I Believe. It challenges us to ask ourselves, “What do you believe?“. I’m glad to say, I believe in Christmas, and more than that, I believe in Christ, the Saviour of the world.

What do you believe?
