Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:1-2 (ESV)
But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.”
Isaiah 43:1 (ESV)
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!
Luke 2:14 (ESV)
Not because stores are decorated with green, red, and golden lights
Not because we listen to Christmas love songs from radio station
Not because we exchange gifts
Because He was born in a lowly place
The place with nothing, not even a blanket or cozy warm bed
Prince of Peace
Because Christ the Savior was born we celebrate CHRISTMAS
Because He sustains me
Even though I am falling right now
He will raise me up
The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.
Psalm 145:14 (ESV)
What A Beautiful Name
Japanese Lyrics: Lauren Horii
Almost three month have passed since I had brain surgery. My neurosurgeon told me that it would take a few weeks to a few years after the surgery to be fully healed from my condition, and that it depends on each patient, case by case. He also told me that he cannot fix all of his patients by surgery, in other words, I may not be one of those in the successful statistical category. If the Lord would not heal me in this world, I believe that I would receive the perfect body and soul when I see Him face to face. So I had peace in fellowship with Him when I went into the operating room. Continue reading
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:13-16 (ESV)
Lauren Daigle “Salt and Light”
Jesus breathed on me, even on me.
The Son of God Himself did this for me.
So I received the Holy Spirit.
And I have peace in Him.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
John 20:21-22 (ESV)
