We Love God!

God: "I looked for someone to take a stand for me, and stand in the gap" (Ezekiel 22:30)

Two great truths: 1. there is a God, 2. you're not Him

A cheerful spirit is one of the most valuable gifts ever bestowed upon humanity by a kind Creator. It is the sweetest and most fragrant flower of the Spirit, that constantly sends out its beauty and fragrance, and blesses everything within its reach. It will sustain the soul in the darkest and most dreary places of this world. It will hold in check the demons of despair, and stifle the power of discouragement and hopelessness. It is the brightest star that ever cast its radiance over the darkened soul, and one that seldom sets in the gloom of morbid fancies and forboding imaginations.

votive candle

Broken and spilled out

One day a plain village womanDriven by love for her LordRecklessly poured out a valuable essenceDisregarding the scornAnd once it was broken and spilled outA fragrance filled all the roomLike a pris’ner released from his shacklesLike a spirit set free from the tomb

Broken and spilled outJust for love of you JesusMy most precious treasureLavished on TheeBroken and spilled outAnd poured at Your feetIn sweet abandonLet me be spilled outAnd used up for Thee

Lord You were God’s precious treasureHis loved and His own perfect SonSent here to show meThe love of the FatherJust for love it was doneAnd though You were perfect and holyYou gave up Yourself willinglyYou spared no expense for my pardonYou were used up and wasted for me

Broken and spilled outJust for love of me JesusGod’s most precious treasureLavished on meYou were broken and spilled outAnd poured at my feetIn sweet abandon LordYou were spilled out and used up for Me

In sweet abandon, let me be spilled outAnd used up for Thee
