Food for thought  13th August 10.....

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Nelson Mandela



"Blessed are the poor in spirit"

Shielded by the mists of merciful tenderness
We find ourselves in posession of vast and awesome wealth, intangible wealth, beyond all earthly recompense.

The great and glorious future that is ours at such great cost to Him,

Who loved enough to lay down his life for His friends

The quiet still waters where he leads rise and overflow from His heart, the spring of mercy, the fountain of joy and love divine.

Priceless are the gifts he bestows on us His children, heavenly and glorious gifts flow gently to our hearts.

Unlocked are His arms to tenderly carry His weary lambs along his road of peace,

Kindness and gratitude He shows in abundance to those who love him.

The weary find rest, the fearful a refuge. The broken-hearted find solace and are cherished.

Sing praises to our God who waits to receive our many burdens, who waits with such inordinate patience to effect our healing.

The sheer expression of his love is gloriously boundless.

Below the fathomless depths of ocean, above and beyond the vault of the skies reaches your love my God.

O, how we need you my God, o, how we need Your love. Bless our need.

Catherine O'Halloran.

Another of my songs.... hope you like it!!

Based upon the Songs of Solomon, where the Beloved experiences the great love of her Lover. As I worshipped I saw myself in a beautiful garden with the Lord.

Song of Solomon 2:3 As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

(I love Jan,my son's, guitar track on this and you'll hear my husband Alan playing the mandolin in the background. )

This song came after making the decision to praise the Lord for a certain amount of time everyday. I had listened to Mike Bickle warning that we would need intimacy and closeness to Jesus to get through the troubled times we would be facing soon. This truth proved to be invaluable to me through the months of continuous trials and tribulations. It helped me focus and stay in the spirit where "ALL IS WELL" rather than look at the circumstances.

I had a sense that it gave Him great pleasure when we spend time in worship, just like the woman with the alabaster box who broke and anointed Jesus with its precious contents. Also when Mary anointed Him with the expensive perfumed nard, Jesus rebuked her critics as she lovingly washed His feet with her hair, and poured the expensive oil on his head. Little did she know that she was anointing his body in preparation for His burial.

To one of the disciples this was an extravagant waste. However this act was so significant that thousands of years later she is honoured for her great sacrificial love.



Luke 7:36-50

Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table. When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

John 12

Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.” He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.

“Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “[It was intended] that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial.You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.”

The Lord is saying: Forget not all my benefits. I have not let you down before. I shall not let you down this time. Rejoice greatly in the manifestation of my deliverance from every situation. Many are the troubles of the righteous, but I deliver you from them all.

12th August 2010

The Lord is saying: Rejoice greatly for my plans have not changed for you. I am working to bring about all you have hoped and dreamed for. I am with you to enable you. Do not look to others or be offended when they do not help or support you. It is I that will get the glory not those you think should be your source.

Prayer Requests

Please send me any urgent prayer requests?

Every thing seems to be quiet at the moment. I've not heard how Sue who has had a brain tumour is . I would love to see her and her husband saved .

I had a dream about another neighbour being refused entry into heaven and the truth dawning on her as she was being sent to hell. She's a lovely person. Please pray for her salvation and for her to believe and accept Jesus.
