What shakes you up will not shake you apart. Nothing can penetrate God’s inner ring of protection for you. Watch for the good God will do. God will help you overcome evil with good. Bad times must not become an excuse for bad conduct. It’s important to continue living right when everything is going wrong. Keep these principles of faith & the peace God promised Israel will be yours as well.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank-you for stabilizing me when I am shaken & surrounding me when I am defenseless. Help me to go on doing good while I trust you that you always work for my good. Amen.

By a friend.

Come brother’s and sisters
to rebuild our walls;
yes, there is sin so hot it blisters,
that makes our courage fall,
But God.
He has called us to fellowship
so do not stifle the friendship
with fear;
it has no place here!
Church, you are not alone
because in the body of Christ we are one.
We have home,
because we have the Son.
Look to the eastern sky
and see the sunrise in your brothers eye;
bring praise together as the darkness ends
and labor alongside your friends.
Bear each other’s burdens
and let the chains be broken
as we raise each other up;
let hope and joy and peace be awoken
as we work with our hands
as if to the Lord.
Brothers and sisters let’s seek His plans
and meditate on His Living Word
so that all our work is acceptable and pure
no matter where we trod,
so even if we are unsure,
we are always the Children of God.

Alabaster stone,
Make it Your home,
holy, broken, set apart;
make it my heart,
pure and holy for You.
Cleanse it and empty me
until all I have is praise
poured out like costly oil,
like your blood on this soil,
thank you for Your Grace come down.
Oil wash over,
like a crown
let it drip down Your lips that speak peace,
Your eyes that see the best in me.
Make my heart broken
at the feet of my crucified, risen King;
on my knees every hope is awoken
and every man of every tongue sings.
Majesty! Hallelujah!
Be the incense of joy,
the essence of hope,
and the intent of my worship.
Beautiful Savior,
I offer my life as my gift;
use it as you wish,
to bring you pleasure
as I am emptied
and you are lifted high;
Lord be glorified.

Living Water from the courts above
flow down
and wash over us in love;
let Your glory ring around
as the saints join in the sound,
the song of freedom.
Oh Holy Water
pour out on Your children
and give us life worth living;
give us hands and hearts for giving.
Sweep over all this land
and free up the greedy hand;
bring to equal
kings and debtors.
Make mighty men to fall
and loose our fetters;
Spirit of God come down like rain
on a parched ground,
mighty to rule and reign,
Lord reclaim your crown.
Loose the floodgates
and flood over our lives
bringing vision to our eyes,
and purpose to our path.
Trod down the grapes of wrath
and make the darkness flee
as the Water of Life
washes over me.
