Good word

The changer of hearts

Breathing life to the dead parts

He’s the answer you seek

Your strength when you’re weak

He’s everything when you’re alone

For a prodigal, your home

A indescribable fulfillment when you’re dry

A comfort for you when you want to ask why

Through the journey, HE is seen

A rock and fortress on which to lean

His Words to me tonight.

‘Trust, declare, believe, stand

I have all of this chaos in MY Hands

I will show who I AM

My purpose, will and plan

Continue, move forward I’ve made the way

Just walk in it, tomorrow’s a new day

To walk out all I’ve purposed and planned for you

So that others will come to know Me as I see you through

Hold My Hand and as I go before you and beside

And remember when you don’t want to be strong, here are My Wings, you can hide

I will hold you close, you will know My presence like you’ve always longed for

I will bring you rest, peace, and release–out from under My Wings you can then soar

Because I have equipped you for such a time as this, to soar like an eagle in flight

And in my perfect timing, all that has been stolen, lost, broken, I will make right.’

Written by my awesome friend, Kara.

Kayleigh is with Jesus

Please pray for Kayleigh's family......she is in the arms of Jesus today.

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for Love is passing by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden’s lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby
Don’t be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk, sometimes we
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain...then
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!

O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can’t contain your joy inside...then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on glory’s side...and
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!

-Chris Rice

You are still a mother.

By Sharee Moore

It is Mother's Day and maybe you don't feel like a mother. Maybe family and friends don't acknowledge your mother status, but I do. I know how it feels to have "angels" in Heaven, but no baby on earth. I remember the intense loneliness .... I remember the burden that Mother's Day brought. It seemed another reminder of what was missing in my life.

I used to avoid church on MD. If I did go I would sit with clenched teeth hoping and praying they wouldn't ask all the mothers to stand. I almost felt like an imposter if I stood up, but a betrayer if I remained seated. I usually ran to the bathroom instead of choosing between the impossible.

So, ladies on this Mother's Day 2009, I pay tribute to you ...

the mother with no living children,

the woman who has fought for motherhood, but has been unable to conceive,

the mom who has a baby on her hip, one in her belly and one forever in her heart,

and the mom who has several in Heaven, while wondering about the survival of the one in the womb ...

This day is for you. You ARE a mother.

Saturday, May 9, 2009
