Relentless Grace

This song by The Vine Band rocked my world today:

You are God
Yet You love me
with a father's love
And I, stand amazed

You are God
Yet it's me you chase
With relentless grace
And I, stand in awe

For You are my God
And my hearts response is
life devoted to worship
For You are my God
And I can't contain it
This praise escaping my lips

With relentless grace
With relentless grace
With relentless grace

Oh this praise In my heart
Is escaping from my lips

With relentless praise
With relentless praise
I will worship You
With with relentless praise

No matter what He is always there ever minute of every day.

"Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit? to be out of your sight? If I climb to the sky, you're there! If I go underground, you're there! If I flew on morning's wings to the far western horizon, You'd find me in a minute— you're already there waiting!" - Ps 139 v 7 - 11

Hear God's voice in your everyday life

One of the questions I am often asked is "How do you hear God's voice?" Its a great question and I am sure there are many answers. But my simple answer is to point people to where and how I hear the whisper of God in my life.

I have never heard a booming audible voice of God. Sorry! But very simply almost every time I pick up the Bible and read a few of the precious words be it on my computer screen, phone or even old fashioned paper it would seem that I eavesdrop on the voice of God.

In a day when the Bible is more accessible than ever it would seem that engagement has followed an opposite curve. I have read that over 70% of Christians seldom or never read God's Word from one Sunday to another.

So buck the trend and do something to make God part of your everyday life.

Check this out taken from the Youversion blog:

What’s the most important voice in your life? You can probably picture a specific person’s face, even hear their voice in your head. That relationship didn’t “just happen.” You work on it. You value it. That’s the kind of relationship God wants with you as his adopted child. And what in your life could be more important than that? He wants you to talk to him, and he wants to talk to you—through his Word.

Starting a new year is the perfect time to freshen relationships and renew dreams. What might your 2013 look like — if you leave space to hear from him?

YouVersion’s Bible Plans make it easy to connect daily with God. People in the worldwide YouVersion community constantly share how much it means to make God’s Word a part of their everyday lives.

The key is to just get started. Here we’ve made a short list to help you turn engaging with the Bible into a daily habit:

  1. If you haven’t already, download the Bible App to your device. 
  2. Get your free YouVersion account.  
  3. Sign up for a Reading Plan.  
  4. Then just start reading God’s Word—or listening to it—a little each day. It really is that simple! 
  5. (Prefer the old fashioned way. Download a reading plan from MKCC website
To help you stick with it, invite your friends! It’s easy to connect to Facebook and Twitter and let them know what you’re reading.

Don't miss out this year in hearing God speak to you everyday!

Mission on Motor Bike

One of my great privileges on my trip to India was to present Pastor Victor Palla with the funds raised to purchase a motor bike for a local Pastor.

A bike gives the Pastor based in remote villages in the mountains outside Palakonda much needed transport as he cares for his church and preaches the Gospel.

Here is Victor's words of thanks:

"Here are the photographs of the Pastor and his family who has been gifted the motorcycle you bought for them. We have purchased this more than 15 days ago and have handed it over to him. 

This Brother is called Murali and is taking care of two churches on the hills. He walks long distance on the hills to take care of these churches. Now this vehicle will help him to move about more quickly and easily. I have been having in mind for a vehicle since more than three years, thank you very much for strengthening our hands to bless him with this vehicle. 

Please kindly continue to remember us in your prayers."

Thank you to those who gave so generously for the purchase of this bike.
