speak to me – kari jobe

speak to me

speak to me

I’m listening

speak to me

speak to me

I’m listening

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

Today, I take this time to repent that too often I come before the Lord to be heard. I don’t hesitate to place all my wants and desires before God without taking the time to listen. After a time in prayer I rarely ever sit in silence because I think to myself, “God heard my “cries” and now He will (or has to) deliver, right?” This is the selfish state of my heart.

God, help me establish the habit of listening. Before I bring I need may I bring my heart.

May I lay prostrate before you. I lift up my arms in ‘worship’ and call upon your name. Drown out all the noise. May you hear my voice and speak to me. Speak powerfully. As I yearn to know you more by listening to your still small voice, help me establish a deeper understanding of You. Unlock my ears to hear your voice for your words are healing. Speak to me, for I am listening.

holy spirit (healing poems)

Filed under: Uncategorized — lucyimhome @ 5:16 am
You cannot see the wind, but you can sense its presence. 
In the same way you cannot see the holy spirit, but you can sense its presence in your innermost being as it stirs and awakens the deepest part of your soul. 

We cannot see, but we believe.

A woman of strength

Filed under: Uncategorized — lucyimhome @ 10:02 pm

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape …
but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape…

A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything …
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear…

A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her …
but a woman of strength gives the best of her to everyone…

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be God’s blessings and capitalizes on them…

A strong woman walks sure footedly …
but a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls…

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face …
but a woman of strength wears grace…

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey …
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong…

love & joy

God’s love is the delight and happiness He has in His own greatness and worth, which becomes the fountain of our joy. That truth is the source of our joy–where does your joy stem from?

The One You Need Shane And Shane Lyrics

Filed under: Uncategorized — lucyimhome @ 10:08 am

Hey hey sweet daughter
I am so proud to be your father
Each day is like a gift from God

Hey hey sweet daughter
There’s no music like your laughter
And your smile is like a rising sun

You know I loved you from the start
So come in close
Take my hand for
Daddy shares his heart

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down
But there’s Someone if you just believe
Be your hero like He’s always been for me
Darling, Jesus is the one you need

No matter what you walk through
He will always love you
Just the way you are
For there’s nothing in this world
That I’d walk for my baby girl
That she’ll be happy ever after

The story of your life is still untold
I pray the King of all the Universe
Would make your heart His own

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down
But there’s Someone if you just believe
Be your hero like He’s always been for me
Darling, Jesus is the one

Who will never leave
He’s been there all along
All ready You can find to love

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down
But there’s Someone if you just believe
Be your hero like He’s always been for me
Darling, Jesus is the one you need

sacrifice

Filed under: Uncategorized — lucyimhome @ 10:47 pm

It’s been a long time since I’ve last written, but just a second ago that I was blessed.

I’ve been reflecting a lot these past few days, something I do quite often when my mind wonders. I’ve been thinking about random things like my college years, what I’m going to wear to work, how many days and hours I have left until my big exam, what I’ll get for mother’s day this year, etc. Nothing significant. As I’m being forced to ‘grow up’ these days I’ve been feeling a little off. Like I’m watching time tick past me at a constant rate. Where did it all go? It was just yesterday that I was running around in my underwear with my grandma chasing me down the street to reprimand me for running away from her.

Just like this with every second of our lives, no matter what we do or say, we’ll continue to grow older one year at a time. As I began to reflect the faces of my mom and dad came to mind. I’ve been such a horrible daughter these past 23 years. I mean, I always try to tell myself that with love comes great sacrifice, but today the sacrifices they made for me to have a better life far exceeded this word. For example, today I went to go pick up my car that had been fixed after it was semi-smashed by a tree…I didn’t have to get it fixed neither did I want to, but my dad took the initiative to do so even if it cost him half or even a full days of wage. My dad took the time to clean the stains on my seat, vacuum the floors, fill my gas tank, and he even got an oil change for me. Right after I picked up my car I went to go visit my mom at work and found her place filled with customers (being a beautician she stands on her feet all day long). Even though she was swamped she grabbed my arm and took me to the back room where she pulled out lunch she had packed for herself but was too busy to enjoy.

Sacrifice.

This is something I haven’t been practicing…not for my family, others, and especially not for the Lord. I quickly darted out of my mom’s beauty salon so I wouldn’t cry in front of her. As I sat in my car for a couple of minutes reflecting on my attitude I resolved to be more pro-active with the people around me. Sometimes I need to slow down and recognize my parents. I am so grateful for their love and hard work. I felt a rush of fire or maybe it was the holy spirit. I want to do more with this life rather than to pursue a successful job or have a wonderful family. I want to create somewhat of a dent in the lives of those around me. I never realized how much my parent’s actions would resound in my life but it has. Now it’s my turn to give. I always wanted to ask God why He placed me in this specific family when I crossed the gates of Heaven, but now I know.

If this is the heart that my earthly parents carry imagine what the heart of our Father in heaven looks like.

Praise the Lord for parents and for the ability to get a glimpse at our Father’s heart. Praise the Lord for sacrificing His precious Son on a cross for a sinner like me. I give thanks, and praise today for the Son and for the freedom that I have in Him. May we continue to praise and give thanks to our Father in Heaven for the great and small sacrifices that He’s made for us.

Thank you Abba.

Titus 2

What Must Be Taught to Various Groups
You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us…

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope–the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.

Doing What Is Good:
Remind the people to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility towards all men.
At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self condemned.

I needed this reminder, and rebuke. How refreshing it is. We need to be in a constant state of repentance. Thank you Lord.
