THE POWER OF GRACE

”But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
/2 Korinth 12:9

When I fall,
I fall into your everlasting arms
You uphold me

I don’t have to have it all toghether
You hold me toghether


I don’t have to be strong
You are strong

I can shake off those heavy burdens
No need of them on my shoulders

Lighter, I can see clearly;

You carry me
So I can be carefree, in the care of God.

You remind me:
”Do not be afraid, I will never leave you. I will never forsake you.

My thoughts and plans for you are only good, I have a future and a hope for you.”

I trust you. You are my saviour, healer, shepherd and friend.

STREAMS OF LIVING WATER

STREAMS OF LIVING WATER

”The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom;like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing.””For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert;the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water;”Isaiah 35:1, 6

”Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, ‘Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” /Jesus John 7:37

WHERE MY STRENGHT COMES FROM


”He gives power to the faint,
and strengthens the powerless.

Even youths will faint and be weary,
and the young will fall exhausted;

but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”
/Isaiah 40:27-30

Many of us thinks that strenght comes from being buzy and doing stuff. But sloooowly I’m starting to realize that it is the opposite. It’s only in the stillness, before God, when I lay my burdens and all my striving down, I find my strenght, true peace, rest, lightness, hope, joy, love and life.

💖

”Come to me all you who are weary,
and I will give you rest.”
/Matthew 11:29 

THE GREATEST GIFT

”For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give.”Romans 8:32

❤

”For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift.So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.”John 3:16

GRACE AND PEACE

”Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
your justice like the great deep.

You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.

For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.”
Psalms 36

❤

When everything around me is shaking.
Your grace and peace covers me.
Fullness of mercy, kindness and love,
ever flowing from your heart.
Like streams of grace, pouring down on us.

GOODNESS AND MERCY

GOODNESS AND MERCY??

”The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.

He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.

He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.

Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.

You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
forever.”

Psalm 23?

”You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”

Psalm 16?

FREEDOM

”I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.”

Psalms 40
