So Will I (Cover)

I have just fallen in love with the words of this song and I sing this as a prayer and an affirmation of my faith and commitment to Jesus Christ.

“So Will I” by Hillsong
God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light
And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapor of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I
God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I
So will I
So will I
Songwriters: Joel Houston, Benjamin Hastings, Michael Fatkin

Your Story. Your Truth.

The Story

We come into this place to experience You, the great I AM…the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Speak Your authority into our lives and introduce Yourself to us in a new way.   Communicate to us beyond what we can see and hear, so that we can fulfill the promises that we make to You and to each other.

Don’t let our own insecurities stop us from living this life. You sacrificed Yourself on the cross for us. You won the battle, and because of the blood of Jesus all people have access to a relationship with a God who will never stop loving them.

Your story, Your truth, lets us know that “there are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” (C.S. Lewis) So, give us the courage to “let go of what we think should happen and just live in what is happening:” (Unknown) God’s love. God’s love is always happening and we should always be sharing the same love that is given to us. We may not reach everyone but don’t let it be because we did not try.

Your Spirit lives on

My mom's handwriting in Visaya.

“God is still speaking” (My mom’s handwriting in bisaya)

“Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.” Ecclesiastes 5:2

Lord, be glorified in our hearts today.   You are in heaven and we are on earth, so let our words be few as Your truth surrounds us today. Repair what is broken in us so that we can go boldly to Your throne and seize Your Word and never let it go.

Remind us that we were not born with fear. Fears are finite but God is infinite.  So even though Your footprints are no longer on this earth, the imprint of Your spirit lives on within us in every moment of our lives.

You see what people can’t see.   You see beyond the walls that we build. You see our hearts. You see us. Let us all just have an amazing encounter with You as Your story unfolds before us. The story of love and how love always wins, how love endures beyond the wreckage of time, and how God’s love will bring healing to all things.

The Same Love

Lord of all creation, space and time, we thank You for the gift of each breath that we take. We pray that You will usher us into Your presence today by taking our gaze off of ourselves and fixing all of our focus on to the living Word of God.

Grab hold of us and let Your truth pour out into our hearts so that we can receive everything that You have to give.   And even when taking one step forward seems too far away, we pray that You would just give us the strength to just get through the awkwardness of trusting You, so that we can believe in the miracles of grace, healing, love and forgiveness.

Give us the strength to face our fears knowing that God is in our side and that God’s love has already won the battle. Reveal to us that despair is not our destination because we never ever have to face these mountains alone.

Through Your Son, Jesus, we can face the cross and experience the presence of the Living God now, today and forever.   For as long as there are people who need healing of the heart, mind, body and spirit, then we can all serve the Lord.  We can serve the Lord by serving all of God’s children with the same love that served us on the cross.
