My 1st book, Beach Blessings, has been published!

Standard

Hey, everyone! Letting you know what I’m up to!

In my 1st book, Beach Blessings, I share my thoughts about God while enjoying and photographing His beautiful scenery at the beach. The beach gives me time to relax and savor the moving of His Holy Spirit, while listening to the contemporary Christian music on my phone.

I’m praying my book will bring Holy Spirit peace and calm to your heart as you drink in God’s beautiful scenery and learn of His faithful promises to you.

Please feel free to comment, ask questions, share prayer requests, or declare praise reports, when you’re directed by the QR code to my YouTube Channel at the end of my book, or simply share your thoughts while on this blog.

Please take a moment today to listen to the beautiful music and lyrics to: “Beloved” by Jordan Felice and “Testify” by needtobreathe.

Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.”

To get an autographed copy, or copies, of Beach Blessings, simply click on the PayPal button. Each book is $15.00 (+ shipping and handling).

Here’s a great idea, purchase two, keep one and give one as a gift!

Beach Blessings has 6 chapters, contains beach photos taken by me, along with Scriptures, contemporary Christian song suggestions to listen to, and devotional questions at the end of each chapter. Great for Bible studies.

My 2nd book, Let God Build It, and my 3rd book, a Christian fiction illustrated children’s book, called The Little Star That Couldn’t Shine, will both be published soon, also.

All God’s Blessings! Pastor Renée Joyce Debrowski

Easter Version of “Hallelujah”

Standard

Kelley Mooney’s approved spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

Be Blessed on this Resurrection Day!!

4-20-14 Easter 024

A crown of thorns placed on His head
He knew that He would soon be dead
He said did You forget Me Father, did You?
They nailed Him to a wooden cross
Soon all the world would feel the loss
Of Christ the King before His Hallelujah

Hallelujah

He hung His head and prepared to die
Then lifted His face up to the sky
Said I am coming home now Father to You
A reed which held His final sip
Was gently lifted to His lips
He drank His last and gave His soul to glory

Hallelujah

The soldier who had used his sword
To pierce the body of our Lord
Said truly this is Jesus Christ our Savior
He looked with fear upon his sword
Then turned to face his Christ and Lord
Fell to his knees crying Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Took from His head the thorny crown
And wrapped Him in a linen gown
And laid Him down to rest inside the tomb
The holes in His hands, His feet and side
Now in our hearts we know He died
To save us from ourselves, Oh, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Three days went by, again they came
To move the stone, to bless the slain
With oil and spice anointing, Hallelujah
But as they went to move the stone
They saw that they were not alone
But Jesus Christ has risen, Hallelujah

Hallelujah!

Amen!

I Know My Redeemer Lives…I Spoke With Him This Morning!!

Psalm 19:14

“May these words of my mouth

and this meditation of my heart   

be pleasing in Your sight,   

Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 027

Jesus,

You are my Redeemer

You have paid the price

You have delivered us from bondage

You have set things right!

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?

And who told the ocean you can only come this far?

And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?

Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well, I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

All of creation testifies

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 068

This life within me cries

I know my Redeemer lives

The very same God

That spins things in orbit

Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak

And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken

They conquered death to bring me victory

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 071

Now I know, my Redeemer lives

He lives

To take away my shame

And He lives

Forever I’ll proclaim

That the payment for my sins

Was the precious life He gave

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 096

And now He’s alive and

There’s an empty grave!

I know, that I know, that I know, that I know, that I know

He lives

My Redeemer lives

Because He lives I can face tomorrow

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 114

He lives

I know, I know

He lives 

I spoke with Him this morning!

He lives

The tomb is empty

He Lives!

I’m going to tell everybody!!

Job 38

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said…

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?  

…Who shut up the sea behind doors…when I said,

‘This far you may come and no farther”…

    …Have you ever given orders to the morning,

or shown the dawn its place,

…Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea  

or walked in the recesses of the deep?

…Have the gates of death been shown to you?

Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?

Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?   

Tell me, if you know all this.

  …Can you raise your voice to the clouds

    and cover yourself with a flood of water?

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?   

Do they report to you,

‘Here we are’?

Who provides food for the raven   

when its young cry out to God   

and wander about for lack of food?”

Job 19:25

1 Peter 2:21-25

“To this you were called,

because Christ suffered for you,

leaving you an example,

that you should follow in His steps.

 ‘He committed no sin,   

and no deceit was found in His mouth.

When they hurled their insults at Him,

He did not retaliate;

when He suffered,

He made no threats.

Instead,

He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly.

‘He Himself bore our sins’

in His body on the Cross,

so that we might die to sins

and live for righteousness;

‘by His wounds you have been healed.”

For ‘you were like sheep going astray,

but now you have returned to the

Shepherd and Overseer

of your souls.”

Isaiah 53

“Who has believed our message   

and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

He grew up before Him like a tender shoot,   

and like a root out of dry ground.

He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him,   

nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him.

He was despised and rejected by mankind,   

a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.

Like one from whom people hide their faces   

He was despised, and we held Him in low esteem.

Surely He took up our pain   

and bore our suffering,

yet we considered Him punished by God,   

stricken by Him, and afflicted.

But He was pierced for our transgressions,   

He was crushed for our iniquities;

the punishment that brought us peace was on Him,   

and by His wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,   

each of us has turned to our own way;

and the Lord has laid on Him   

the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,   

yet He did not open His mouth;

He was led like a lamb to the slaughter,   

and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,  

so He did not open His mouth.

By oppression and judgment He was taken away.   

Yet who of His generation protested?

For He was cut off from the land of the living;   

for the transgression of my people He was punished.

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,   

and with the rich in His death,

though He had done no violence,   

nor was any deceit in His mouth.

Yet it was the Lord’s Will to crush Him and cause Him to suffer,   

and though the Lord makes His life an offering for sin,

He will see His offspring and prolong His days,   

and the Will of the Lord will prosper in His hand.

After He has suffered,   

He will see the light of life and be satisfied;

by His knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,   

and He will bear their iniquities.

Therefore I will give Him a portion among the great,   

and He will divide the spoils with the strong,

because He poured out His life unto death,   

and was numbered with the transgressors.

For He bore the sin of many,   

and made intercession for the transgressors.”
