I Just Want To Be Where You Are


I am giving You my heart and my soul,

my fear and my doubts,

I know where You are,

there I will feel peace

and won’t feel any pain.

Thank You for Your unconditional love.

Thank You Lord for Your forgiveness

and for all You mean for us.

I will give Him my hart


On this Special day I am bringing for all of you a very important message by pastor Rick Warren . Please read it carefully and enjoy your holidays.

Blessings!

Jesus’ Christmas List

For more than 50 years my family has kept a tradition of holding a birthday party for Jesus. It started when I was 3 years old and asked my mom, “What is Christmas?” My mom told me it was Jesus’ birthday. With terrific 3-year-old logic, I said, “We should have a birthday party!” And we did, complete with a birthday cake, Kool-Aid, songs, cake, and candles.

We’ve kept that tradition going for four generations now. The birthday party for Jesus has become a sacred time where we read the Christmas story and share what we’re grateful for and what we’re giving Jesus, which is one of the most memorable parts of the celebration.

Often, Jesus gets shut out during Christmas. Imagine I planned a party for you and invited many people. Everyone brings lots of gifts, and the invitees trade presents with one another — and you get nothing.

That’s Christmas. We give gifts to everyone but Jesus. But let’s be honest — what do you give the God who has everything?

Actually, Jesus doesn’t have everything. There are four things he doesn’t have unless you give them to him this Christmas:

Give him your trust. Faith is a voluntary matter. Jesus doesn’t have your trust unless you give it to him. He will never force it.

Make Jesus first place in your life. If anything or anyone other than Jesus holds first place in your life, it’s an idol. This Christmas, choose to make Jesus first in your finances, interests, relationships, schedule — and even in your troubles.

Give Jesus your heart. Your heart is what you love, what you value, and what you care about most. Jesus says, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Luke 12:34 NIV). One important way you give Jesus your heart this Christmas is by giving your resources to his work. Jesus doesn’t need your money, but he wants what it represents — your heart.

Bring other people to Jesus. God wants a family more than anything else this Christmas. He wants children who choose to love and trust him. It is the reason we celebrate Christmas. Invite someone to Jesus this Christmas. Tell someone about what Jesus has done in your life.

The Bible tells us that the Wise Men didn’t give Jesus their leftovers when they visited him on the first Christmas but instead gave three very significant and valuable gifts: “They bowed down and worshiped him. They opened their gifts and gave him treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh” (Matthew 2:11 NCV).

As you give Jesus your trust, make him first in your life, give what you value to his work, and bring other people to him, you’re giving him gifts far more valuable than the ones the Wise Men brought.

So tell Jesus “happy birthday” this Christmas. Give him your best.

Chris Tomlin – Never lose sight


“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11, NIV

Names are powerful. From birth, they give us our identity. They immediately tell others who we are. Throughout the Bible, names are important to Jesus. In fact, He was notorious for changing people’s names and then helping them live up to the name He gave them. Yet no name wields more power than that of Jesus Himself. Emmanuel, God with us. And through the ages, the names of the Father have become a source of strength for His children:

Shepherd.
Friend.
Savior.
Messiah.
Jesus.

Ask any longtime Christ follower, and they can likely tell you the name of the Lord that means the most to them and where they were when they learned the meaning and value of that particular name of God. The name of Jesus evokes a peace and a power like no other.

It’s through the name of Jesus that we find everlasting life. Romans 10:13 says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

In His name we find salvation, freedom, and ultimate healing. It’s His name that we call in times of despair. It’s His name that we celebrate and revere in wonder and praise.

There is a name I call in times of trouble
There is a song that comforts in the night
There is a voice that calms the storm that rages
He is Jesus, Jesus

So much is wrapped up in that one name, and the longer we follow Christ, the more we discover that so much of ourselves is wrapped up in those five letters. He is the only one who can tell us who we are because we are His.

Yet culture will relentlessly try to redefine us, calling us names like:

Stupid.
Small.
Ugly.
Insignificant.
Not enough.

But culture holds no power over anyone who belongs to Jesus. The One who stills the wind and the waves knows your rightful name, and He calls you:

Precious.
Beloved.
Beautiful.
Priceless.
Mine.

Read: Philippians 2:9-11

Romans 10:13

Chris Tomlin – Never Lose Sight Devotional (day 2)

Categories: God, Faith, Bible | Tags: , , , , , , | Leave a comment

Prayer – the most important in the morning and before bed time… and all the time


Devotional

My day planner was bursting at the seams. Each small square on the calendar was crammed with conflicting responsibilities: children’s music lessons or play practice, church meetings, work deadlines. Even brief moments of social life required budgeting well in advance. I was so busy that I resented the time I had to spend sleeping. And in the midst of my over-scheduled life, God continued to call me to spend daily quiet time with Him.

How could I fit in one more thing? Didn’t He understand how important all my activities were? The work of the day insisted on its own urgency, so I often rushed through a token devotion and hurried prayer.

Reading through the Gospels, I discovered that Scripture mentions many times how Jesus went away to pray—sometimes early in the morning, sometimes overnight.

When life is overwhelming, setting aside time for prayer feels counter-intuitive. Surely diving into the work of the day will bring more progress than stepping aside for prayer. Jesus understood the pressure of time. His brief years of ministry were limited, and there were so many people who needed truth, forgiveness, healing. His disciples needed to be taught. The Father’s plan needed to be carried out. Yet He made prayer a priority.

As busy as my life might be, I will never carry the weight of responsibility that Jesus did. He came to redeem the entire human race. Yet instead of frantic urgency, He consistently modeled a life of prayer, of retreat, of seeking a quiet place.

Martin Luther said, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” That level of commitment, along with the consistent example of Jesus, inspires me to find my own solitary space and time each day to spend time in prayer.

Faith Step: If your day feels too full, take a risk and schedule some extra prayer first, trusting Jesus to provide what you need for all the other responsibilities.

Read: Mark 1:35
