Can you believe we are almost through with the first six months of the year?   Six months already, I can’t seem to wrap my head around that number.   What have I done during these months?  I know our world has certainly had its share of changes, but what about me; what […]

Daily Prayer – 13 June

Advertisements

Good morning, Heavenly Father! Thank You for a new day. Thank You that Your compassion is renewed every morning and never fails. Great is Your faithfulness and Your steadfast love, O Lord! I don’t know what all is going to happen today, and how much I’ll get done, but You do. So I give this day to You. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, Father. Energise me for Your work, because You know how tired these bones are. Awaken me to the wonder of Your salvation, and quicken my spirit to the reality of Your work in my life. Lord, my mind is filled with creative ideas, but they’re all jumbled. Holy Spirit, come and hover over my mind like You hovered over the waters at creation and speak order out of the chaos! Help me to cease striving and to trust that You will give me all I need today to do the work You’ve given me to do. You will be faithful to complete the good work You’ve started, and as I step out into my day, I declare Your sovereignty over every area of my life. I entrust myself to You and ask that You use me however You see fit. This day is Yours. My body is Yours. My mind is Yours. Everything I am is Yours. May You be pleased with me today. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Are you in the shallow?

Advertisements

I have, for the last three mornings, woken up with a song in my mind….Watch this space for a post for anyone who feels far from the shallows…

Jesus comforts – “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1

Jesus can bring you back from the shallow and into the deep where deeper connections and relationships are formed.

Move Far Away From the Shallows!

Tell me somethin’, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?

I’m falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longin’ for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

Tell me something, boy
Aren’t you tired tryin’ to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I’m falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longing for a change
And in the bad times I fear myself

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We’re far from the shallow now

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Whoah I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We’re far from the shallow
