Happy Birthday To Me ( by Fenny West)

Happy Birthday To Me

O Give Thanks 

O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good and His mercy endures forever. 

To Him Who does great wonders, His mercy endures for ever. 

To Him who predestined me and brought me into being, for His mercy endures for ever. 

Give thanks to the Great God of Glory. His mercy endures for ever. 

To Him who gave life to me, and furnished me with various gifts, His mercy endures forever.

Give praise to the Lord of Lords, my Saviour, who died for me, was raised back again to give me a New Life, for His mercy endures forever. 

Give thanks for the Holy Spirit, my Standby, Teacher, Comforter, Guide, Enablement, Anointing, Intercessor and Advocate, for His mercy endures forever. 

Give glory to the God who has a great plan for me, for His mercy endures forever; a plan that shall be accomplished, fulfilled with finesse, for His mercy endures forever. 

Ascribe Greatness to the Lord, my Rock, my Strength, my light and my salvation, my  joy, my sufficiency, for His mercy endures forever. 

Thank you, Lord for adding another year to my life. My life shall sing your praise, glorify You, yield mammoth Dividend for You and Your Church and my world, in Jesus’ mighty Name. 

I shall fulfil my destiny, in Jesus’ Name, not by might, nor by power, but by Your Holy Spirit.

I thank You that I am on earth at such a time as this. Every jot and tittle of Your plan shall be fulfilled, in Jesus: Name. I shall be ready and willing and waiting and well able for any task or assignment, in the Day of Your power, in Jesus’ Name. 

Happy Birthday to me! Hallelujah!

How Do You See ( Fenny West)

How Do You See

https://youtu.be/hqHlIRZnF38

What we take for granted
Is longed for by many.
O that we would be grateful,
Count all our blessings,
Name them one by one,
Give glory to the Holy One,
For His love, goodness and kindness.

When you see through the eyes of God,
You will be greeted with such joy, awe,
Dumbfounded, exhilarated and elated.

Lord, help me to see through Your eyes.

Exude Joy, Eschew Anger (by Fenny West)

Exude Joy, Eschew Anger

Exude Joy, Eschew Anger
Joy lifts, anger destroys.
Embrace joy unspeakable
Dispel anger and its danger.

Draw from the well of joy-
The joy of the Spirit within
Let His presence exude joy
And ward off wrath and its wiles.

Sing for joy, sing praises
Give thanks with a dance.
Name your blessings one by one
And give glory and honour.

 

for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Neh8:10

Now the Day is Far Spent ( by Fenny West)

Now the Day Is Far Spent

Now the day is far spent, Lord 
Night is creeping upon us. 
Soon we’ll see the Day of the Lord, 
Coming, rushing upon us. 
O that we would see the rainbow 
On the cloud, a sign to us. 
Faithful God, who keeps His promise 
Coming even as He said. 

May we work while it is day, Lord
In the night no man can work. 
Always doing what You say, Lord. 
Standing always on the Rock. 
O That we would see the good field. 
Vast and plenteous with harvest. 
That we would join hand to hand, 
Reaping precious souls for God. 

Now we’ll raise the banner of praise, 
For You Lord, Who’s the Most High 
Regardless of what the world says 
With our eyes, we kiss Your eyes. 
We bow down, O Holy Spirit. 
Work in us  to work through us.
Rekindle the holy fire. 
Here we come, Lord, here we come.

The Parallel and Paradox … ( by Fenny West)

The Parallel and Paradox of the Wooden Art

https://youtu.be/F7qXKab5S5g

How incredible insightful and instructive!

The Wood artist sees what we do not see
And painstakingly uses his tool to chip off, cut out, carve out, garnish until the beautiful masterpiece emerges out of the wood to our amazement, admiration and wonder.
This is exactly what God sees in you and I. We may look useless on the outside but there is masterpiece waiting to find expression in us.
And as we yield to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God does His miracle of transformation by chipping off, carving out, garnishing, polishing until the masterpiece which was there, emerges for all to see, admire and glorify God for.
Today, yield to the Holy Spirit to work in you as to work through you. See yourself as a masterpiece awaiting manifestation. Yes, often the pruning can be painful, but see the joy ahead, like Jesus and submit yourself to the Master Crafts-Man Who knows your end from the beginning.

: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of the sons of God.  Ro8:19
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph2:10
John15:1} I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. {15:2} Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. {15:3} John15:1-3

1John{3:1} Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. {3:2} Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

How Loving and Caring (by Fenny West)

How Loving, How Caring! 

“I heard Him say, “Go there and speak” 
But I ran away, boarded a ship
Like the Titanic, I was bold.
I was wise in my way, in my eyes. 
Unbeknown to me, I leaked and was weak. 
I had betrayed myself, my soul sold. 

And down I went, drowning 
to a point of no return. 
Then I remembered my fault 
And cried out to Him. 
In the depths I raised a hymn of praise, 
I worshipped my Maker for His mercy, 
His wisdom, power, sovereignty. 
Like Paul and Silas, I was not silenced, 
Even in the rain, pain and grave. 

He was moved, quickly forgave
Commanded an earthquake 
To wash me ashore. 
And there I was, 
Even with a pillow 
Under my head. 
How loving, how caring!
