Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High   

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord,

“He is my refuge and my fortress,   

my God, in whom I trust.”

4-27-14 Walk-Palms Nursing Home!! 011

Surely He will save you   

from the fowler’s snare   

and from the deadly pestilence.

4-27-14 Walk-Palms Nursing Home!! 105

He will cover you with His feathers,   

and under His wings you will find refuge;   

His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

4-27-14 Walk-Palms Nursing Home!! 116

You will not fear the terror of night,   

nor the arrow that flies by day,

 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,   

nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side,

to guard you in all your ways;

they will lift you up in their hands,

You will tread on the lion and the cobra;   

you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

“Because he loves me,”

says the Lord,

“I will rescue him;  

I will protect him,

for he acknowledges My Name.

I will be with him in trouble,   

I will deliver him and honor him.

Great God Almighty…Rock ‘n Roll For Your Soul!!

1 Corinthians 15:22

“For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”

I just can’t believe
Where my life was at
All that I know is that my heart was broken
And I don’t ever wanna go back

Ain’t no explanation
How I saw the light
He found me and set me free
And it brought me back to life

Blame it on the transformation
Changed down to the core
His love is real
And I can’t sit still
‘Cause my name’s not shamed no more

Great God Almighty, gonna change this
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed

Come on and shake, shake, shake like you changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed

Maybe He came to you
When everything seemed fine
Or maybe your world was upside down and hit you right between the eyes
No matter when it happened
At 7 or 95
Move your feet ’cause you are free
And you’ve never been more alive

Great God Almighty, gonna change me
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me
Great God Almighty, gonna change me
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me

Matthew 18:3

And He said:

“Truly I tell you,

unless you change and become like little children,

you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Job 13:15

“Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him;    

I will surely defend my ways to His face.”

11-29-13 Walk 009

We must come to the place…

Where we will serve Him no matter what!

-Even if life seems to be going against us…

(True faith rises when it’s tested in the valley!)

-Even without encouragement from others…

(Sometimes you may need to stand alone…and say,

“As for me and my house we will  serve the Lord!)

-Even when we don’t understand everything He’s doing…

(Sometimes it’s when you don’t know His plan and purpose

that you build your greatest work for God!)

Do people ask how you can still praise the Lord…

With all that you’ve gone through???

Circumstances can’t possibly change…

Who you are forever in our Lord!

Since your life was changed

Long before the rainy days…

It’s now forever settled in your mind!

I’ll never turn my back on You…

Oh, Lord!

You’re my only shelter from the storms…

I’ll draw even closer through these times!

So I pray…

“Bring me joy, bring me peace…

Bring the chance to be free…

Bring me anything that brings You glory!”

Though there will be days when this life brings me pain…

If that’s what it takes to praise You…

Jesus Bring the Rain!

I am Yours regardless of the dark clouds that may loom above…

Because You are much greater than my pain!

You made a way for me by suffering Your destiny…

So tell me…

What’s a little rain???

You’re Holy, Holy, Holy! 

My Lord God Almighty!!

11-27-13 Walk 012

This prayer means you take what God gives you…

And you use it for His glory!!

We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus,

so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”

Your love crossed the canyon between us…

You came to save me!

In Your mercy…

You ran to me…

Your forgiveness embraced me…

It called me by name…

Hallelujah!
