O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped. (‭Psalms‬ ‭63‬:‭1-11‬ KJV) #PilgrimRest #occupyallstreets

Yesterday was a tremendous time of Worship and Freedom. I shared with you on that one of the greatest messages of Easter is that of liberation.  Christ death equaled our Freedom. He chose us that we might live for Him. Walk in your Freedom. #Easter #PilgrimRest #Occupyallstreets

He has called us to a purpose, His purpose. Stop making excuses why you can't. You can. You're called to a purpose not to perfection. In fact, He will use your/my many imperfections to reach others. Stop making excuses. Go occupy! Get over your you can't. You can! Receive that - so you can tell someone else they can too. #occupyallstreets #freedom #PilgrimRest

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.

We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push into the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love. ~~Sir Francis Drake

This isn't to say you don't have bad days- it is to say, keep them in perspective. Alive?! That that means there's purpose to fulfill. Your good days really do outweigh your bad days...keep going. #freedom #occupyallstreets #PilgrimRest

Everything you are and have should be yielded in His direction. Is your all on the altar of sacrifice? ------------> But nothing, not even my life, is more important than my completing my mission. This is nothing other than the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus: to testify about the good news of God’s grace. (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭20‬:‭24‬ CEB) #freedom #livinggenerously #occupyallstreets #PilgrimRest

The time after service on Sunday can be one of tremendous struggle. Satan is busy attempting to convince you you misheard God, misunderstood Him or that you just missed altogether...don't dig up in doubt what you planted in faith. Thomas asked, "Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?" Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you have really known me, you will also know the Father. From now on you know him and have seen him." Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father; that will be enough for us." Jesus replied, “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been with you all this time? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I have spoken to you I don’t speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me does his works. Trust me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or at least believe on account of the works themselves. I assure you that whoever believes in me will do the works that I do. They will do even greater works than these because I am going to the Father. (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭5-12‬ CEB) #knowHim #occupyallstreets #freedom
