Are You Tired of Searching And Striving?

mountains-1284691_1920“…but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:14)

I’m very conscious that many Christians are weary and tired. Many are in fact exhausted. I mean this in a spiritual sense, hence the need for a place to sit down and draw fresh water to revive a weary soul. And many who don’t know Christ at all are equally spiritually exhausted in their search for truth and life, amidst a myriad of voices and choices, all of which have failed to deliver.

So here is a prayer poem for every one of you precious folk;

Today though you are tired

And your soul is heavy

whilst your burdens are many

and confusion reigns

may you be led to the trickling

of the streams that are running

flowing from the rivers

from the mountain’s terrains

As you sit by the streams

may you breathe in the air

that is fresh and sweet

to sweep away your cares

May you swish your feet

in the cool water flow

and be washed from the world

and it’s heavy, muddy blow

May your heart be quickened

to follow the streams

to search with tranquillity

the source of their beams

as the sunlight splashes

and shows you the way

may you not strive but rather

delay

the cares of the world

and it’s push and its shove

the lies of self-effort

to live by your own love

May you find yourself walking

ever so calmly

toward the river

in an atomosphere balmy

with a spring in your step

and a song in your heart

find yourself walking

in Someone else’s love

May you feel His hand

resting light on your shoulder

May you sense His warmth

permeate you and smoulder

the shame of your past

and the fears of your future

in the light of Him

in His perfect character.

May you find yourself lifted

your shoulders lightened

your legs at rest

and no longer frightened

May you know that within

you are being beckoned

Beckoned and called by

the One who has reckoned

Who’s reckoned all things

in His blood that has done it

That’s settled the matter

though you’ve not even earned it

Drink from that stream,

bathe in that river

Let your head fall back

and be carried hither

by the Arms of His Love

in the River of Life

May you come to know Him

As His Bride, His wife.

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let the one who hears say, “Come!” And let the one who is thirsty come, and the one who desires the water of life drink freely. (Revelation 22:17)

Look, I am coming soon! (Rev 22:7)

Treasuring Him Together – a brother’s blog site

Hello saints! Holy and righteous ones!!!!

Well, I am all a ga-ga about you right now, about this beautiful bride of our Lord Jesus! (of which I am part!)

Well, I have the honour of doing life with a dear brother whose name is Ben Halliday.  Ben has a blog site called ‘Treasuring him together’.  He has just posted his first ‘video’ post on the bride of Christ, although has been blogging for a good few months now. (If I could re-blog his post here I would!)

I’ve had the pleasure of walking with this brother for approximately 2 and a half years in organic church life and have had the honour of seeing the Lord’s life explode in him, as he continues to abide in Him and trust Him in all things.

After just watching his video post on the bride of Christ, I feel compelled to encourage y’all to check it out. It’s only short so I hope you have the time to check it out – just click on this link to go right there.

Getting to Know You Jesus

IMG_2189

Jesus, You are like the sunrise.

When I meet with You, in the quiet place, it is like sitting with You in the dark.

The longer I wait, the closer I am to being present as Your light begins to appear.

It seems I am sitting with You in blackness, not a negative blackness, but where I can’t see.

Then, after a time, it seems to appear that I can begin to see, ever so slightly.

The longer I stay with You, the lighter it becomes.

The more clearly I can see.

The more clearly I understand what is around me…..what You are showing Me.

….You….

Your light begins to flood the earth, the skies, and nothing is hidden from You.

You have seen me all along, and now I see You.

This is how I get to know You Jesus, my dearest, most gentle friend.

Jesus, You are like the Bridegroom coming forth from Your pavillion….nothing is hidden from You. Psalm 19

Jesus is In Love With You

Christ & His Bride

Dear Member of the Bride,

Do you know that you are holy and righteous in God’s sight? Did you know you are a saint? Did you know you, a believer in the Lord Jesus, are already seated with Him in heavenly places? It’s true! You have already been made holy, spotless and blameless! Well, isn’t that a thing!

I hope this song touches you like it does me.  All I can hear is Jesus singing this to us, His church, His most beloved Bride.

Jesus Christ is the ultimate Bridgeroom who is madly in love with His blushing bride, she is His girl, she makes Him weak at the knees.

I pray the Lord Jesus reveals to you through this song, the abounding love that He has for you, as you are part of her, and she is most glorious to behold.
