Psalms 27:8 You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”
Psalms 25:5-9 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O Lord! Good and upright is the Lord; therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way.
1 Chronicles 28:9 know God and serve Him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. If you seek Him, He will be found by you but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.
This is a love story. One that is very unusual, very different. You will not find this love here on earth, its love that goes beyond the stars, the moon and the sun; it comes from heaven above.
Its love that’s so strong it will forgive you and still love you. Its love that has so much mercy for you that it will make you stronger because of that mercy. It is love that ends all love. This love is so magnificent, so wonderful, so glorious, and so strong; there is nothing in this world that compares to it. Whose love am I talking about? I am speaking about the love that the Lord has for you! It’s never ending and forever lasting.
Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Acts 17:27 “That they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us.”
Ephesians 3:17-19 So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
1 Chronicles 28:9 know God and serve Him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. If you seek Him, He will be found by you, but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.
By me J.L. Russell 12/3/12
Our soul is heavy with burdens and worries.
It seems we’re always in a hurry.
This world goes on whether we are here or not.
May we realize one day those worries were for naught.
If only we had given those burdens and worries to the Lord.
Our life could have been more.
Don’t hold back, tell Him all that’s on your mind.
I guarantee the weight in your heart will get less in time.
He is strong, trustworthy and faithful, it’s true.
He is there when no one else is able to be with you.
Open up your heart to him and let it go.
Then you will feel the love begin to flow.
I promise you what you tell Him will go no further.
If there’s any one you can trust, its God our Father.
Matthew 11:28-29 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
