• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

The Secret Depths by Michelle

There used to be this secret place
     that I harbored grief and despair.
My own little refuge where I was
    bound by grudging and resentments.
A secret place I called my own
    full of bitterness and anger.
 
But now….
                ….old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  2 Cor. 5:17 
 
There is this place in which
    I enjoy the secret riches of Christ.  Is. 45:3
My refuge, my hightower
    a stronghold in the storms of life.  Nah. 1:7
A secret place filled with
   Christ within, my hope of glory. Col. 1:27
 
A wellspring of life.
Rest for the weary.
Hope for the hurting.
 
My Deliverer from Evil.
My Rescuer in the Night.
Christ Jesus,
And in Him Alone
I am able to stand.
 
So bury the hatchet and marry Christ, He is Lord of all in this life. 
 
Pursue peace with all men.
Bring honour, where honour is due.
 
Count it all dung, so that I may win Christ.
 
So turn to Christ and let Him be your Saviour instead of  YOU.

  • “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. — John 10:14-15 (NKJV)
