Sunday’s Showcase of Truth: Starvation

“If the people around you are dependent

on your words for nourishment,

are they starving to death???”

Words of life

Intention

“We need deliberately to call to mind the joys of our journey. Perhaps we should try to write down the blessings of one day.  We might begin; we could never end; there are not pens or paper enough in all the world.” — George A. Buttrick  (http://www.heartlight.org)

Hurts

“The Hurt and The Healer” by MercyMe

Why?
The question that is never far away
But healing doesn’t come from the explained
*Jesus, please don’t let this go in vain
You’re all I have, all that remains

*So here I am, what’s left of me
*When glory meets my suffering

(Chorus)
*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it’s all that I can do
*Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord, take hold and pull me through

So here I am, what’s left of me
When glory meets my suffering

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

It’s the moment when humanity

Is overcome by majesty

*When grace is ushered in for good
*And all our scars are understood

When mercy takes its rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of weakness we must bow
And hear you say “It’s over now”

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus, come and break my fear

*Wake my heart and take my tears
Find your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

UPDATE:

*As we share our song space the lyrics that pierce my heart.

Dew-Kissed and Clipped

As a thoughtful gift, a dear friend sent glorious flowers.  I pondered the deep colors and became aware how fragmented my feelings are at the moment.  I can’t “feel” the warmth of the beauty.

“God”, I cried out, “this is so not like me.  I am use to the whole experience and then some.”

As He usually does, He rarely answers me directly.  I heard Him whisper “I was up early and saw my flower still kissed with dew.  I hand clipped each flower for you.”

You too have hand clipped gifts through out your day.  If you can’t feel it to the fullest yet, stop and give thanks.  It is part of His intimacy with you.

Just A Drop Can Change The World

Dedicated to Sean Mccleary…

Imagine the life of a gift; just one dollar can wet His Kingdom with living waters.

Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” John 4:10

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of livingwater.’” John 7:38
