Unfailing love sets me free
Unfailing love You lead me
With Your hand
And all I know
With Your arms around me
Your face is all that I seek
Your love and grace
Pick me up and hold me
You alone are holy .

Great reminder of God’s love this season. How much do you really know about this love that God have for you?
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
Hearing their stories and testimonies reminded me that God is constantly at work in us and around us. Are we willing to partner with Him so that He can work through us? How are you part of the Great Commission today?
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonging to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of His life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow You, You’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed You most You would leave me.
The Lord replied, “ my precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.
Often we go through difficult and hard situations and don't have a sense of God being present. However, when we look back through the hard times we can often see God's hand at work. We may not realise it in the moment, but looking back we can see where God has guided and how He has helped us overcome.
Amidst the hustling and bustling of life, we need to find time to retreat with Him. Finding rest and strength in His presence.
Your love is deeper than the deepest oceans
Your grace is greater than the greatest seas
And Your faithfulness O Lord, it’s enough for me
It’s all that I need
Learning to pray, wait, rejoice and rely on God. Trusting Him, no matter what. He is my strength and joy
I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days
And I’ve prayed prayers to heaven from my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God You give and take away
No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love
On the mountains I will bow my life to One who set me there
In the valley I will life my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I’m standing on the mountain I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You’re God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I’m not alone.
I’ve watched my dreams get broken
In You I hope again
No matter what
I know I’m safe inside Your hand
Father You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all You will remain over it all
