Your heart will be where your treasure is

for where your treasure is, 
there your heart
 [your wishes, your desires;
 that on which your life centers]
 will be also."

"...to the hardest and the dark.."

“Shaking off the dust as we arise
Awake awake our generation cries
Salvation's song will ring throughout the earth...
To carry out Your love to the hardest and the dark

“Take Courage”

"He is able & higher than the mountains that I face"


pc eholuta
Recently I saw a single gray hair on two separate people. I thought, wow, time passes and they were getting older as I certain am. Reading I gained some encouragement and realized God is able, still on the throne, and faithful in every season we face.
"For the Lord is
He is able, He is faithful
Higher than the mountains that I face
Every season, I will press on
For God alone, is on the throne"

“.. leave your declining years to him, and give your present years to him. Live to him now, and he will never cast you away when you are old.(Charles Spurgeon))

“He knows what it is to have a feeling of our infirmities, that he promises, and he is truth as well as love, that they who wait on him shall renew their strength!”
(Wilberforce)

“Even when you are old, I ·will be the same [am he]. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will ·take care of [sustain; carry] you. I made you and will carry you. I will ·take care of [sustain; carry] and ·save [rescue] you.
Isaiah 46:4 (EXB)


On The Throne (feat. Kari Jobe)

I will walk through the fire
Walk through the darkest night
I will walk through the flood
I won't be overcome, I won't be overcome
I will walk through the trial
Walk through the valley of fear
I will walk through the storm
I won't be overcome, I won't be overcome
For the Lord is
He is able, He is faithful
Higher than the mountains that I face
Every season, I will press on
For God alone, is on the throne
I will walk in Your promise
Walk in Your victory
I will walk in Your power
I won't be overcome, I won't be overcome
For the Lord is
He is able, He is faithful
Higher than the mountains that I face
Every season, I will press on
For God alone, is on the throne
Glorious, victorious
Sovereign over all
On the throne
Infinite, magnificent
Reigning over all
On the throne
Glorious, victorious
Sovereign over all
On the throne
Infinite, magnificent
Reigning over all
You're in control
You're in
On the throne
You're reigning
You're reigning

"countless number of sails moving off to the mighty ocean.."



“At times I would rise up, a flash of energetic freedom would dart through my soul, accompanied with a faint beam of hope that flickered for a moment, and then vanished. I sank down again, mourning over my wretched condition.
....My sufferings, as I remember them now, seem like a dream rather than a stern reality.
  Our house stood within a few rods of the Chesapeake bay, whose broad bosom was ever white with sails from every quarter of the habitable globe. Those beautiful vessels, robed in white, and so delightful to the eyes of freemen, were to me so many shrouded ghosts, to terrify and torment me with thoughts of my wretched condition. I have often, in the deep stillness of a summer’s Sabbath, stood all alone upon the banks of that noble bay, and traced, with saddened heart and tearful eye, the countless number of sails moving off to the mighty ocean. The sight of these always affected me powerfully. My thoughts would compel utterance; and there, with no audience but the Almighty, I would pour out my soul’s complaint in my rude way with an apostrophe to the moving multitude of ships.
  “You are loosed from your moorings and free. I am fast in my chains and am a slave! You move merrily before the gentle gale, and I sadly before the bloody whip. You are freedom’s swift-winged angels, that fly around the world; I am confined in bonds of a iron. O, that I were free! O, that I were on one of your gallant decks, and under your protecting wing! Alas! betwixt me and you the turbid waters roll. Go on, go on; O, that I could also go! Could I but swim! If I could fly! O, why was I born a man, of whom to make a brute! The glad ship is gone: she hides in the dim distance. I am left in the hell of unending slavery. O, God, save me! God, deliver me! Let me be free!—Is there any God? Why am I a slave? Meanwhile I will try to bear the yoke. It may be that my misery in slavery will only increase my happiness when I get free. There is a better day coming.”

"...All I did was praise,bow,stay still..."

"Your love becomes my greatest defense
  It leads me from the dry wilderness...
  All I did was praise
  All I did was worship
  All I did was bow down
  All I did was stay still"

"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,  that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 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.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen
Ephesians 3:14-21 (ESV)

Defender 
You go before I know
That You've gone to win my war
You come back with the head of my enemy
You come back and You call it my victory

You go before I know
That You've gone to win my war
Your love becomes my greatest defense
It leads me from the dry wilderness

All I did was praise
All I did was worship
All I did was bow down
All I did was stay still

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, great Defender
So much better Your way

You know before I do
Where my heart can seek to find Your truth
Your mercy is the shade I'm living in
You restore my faith and hope again

All I did was praise
All I did was worship
All I did was bow down
All I did was stay still

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better this way
Hallelujah, great Defender
So much better this way

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, great Defender
So much better Your way

When I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to Your love
You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together
You are the defender of my heart
[x2]

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better this way
Hallelujah, great Defender
So much better Your way
[x2]

All I did was praise
All I need to do is worship
Lord I will just bow down
I'm just gonna stay still
