As the deer pants after water,
Lord, our souls yearn for You,
Come and quench the thirsting within,
As only You can do.

Forgiven and cleansed by Your blood,
Oh, how our spirits soar,
The void within is filled, and yet,
Our souls thirst for You more.

You are our Great and Mighty God,
Creator of the earth,
Our Redeemer, Shepherd, and Friend,
We praise You for new birth!

You are the Fountain springing up,
Water of Life within,
The River that so freely flows,
Washing away our sin.

Your Holy Spirit satisfies
As nothing else can do,
As the Deer pants after water,
Lord, our souls pant after You.

~ Author Connie Campbell Bratcher ~

Psalm 42: 1-2
"As the hart (deer) panteth after the water brooks,
So panteth my soul after Thee, O God.
My soul thirsteth for God, for the Living God."

Romans 5: 1-5
"Therefore being justified by Faith,
We have peace with God
Through the Lord Jesus Christ.
By Whom also we have access by faith,
Into this grace wherein we stand,
And rejoice in hope of the Glory of God.
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also,
Knowing that tribulation, worketh patience.
And patience, worketh experience,
And experience, worketh hope.
And hope maketh not ashamed,
Because the love of God,
Is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost,
Which is given unto us."

Colossians 3: 12-17
"So, as those who have been chosen by God,
Holy and beloved,
Put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility,
gentleness and patience.
Bearing one another,
And forgiving each other.
Whoever has a complaint against anyone.
Just as the Lord forgave You,
So also should you.
Beyond all these things,
Put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
To which indeed you were called in one body,
And be thankful.
Let the Word of Christ richly dwell within you,
with all wisdom teaching and admonishing,
One another with Psalms and hymns,
And spiritual songs, singing,
With thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Whatever you do in word or deed,
Do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus,
Giving thanks through Him to God the Father."

1st John 4: 18a
"There is no fear in love,
But perfect love casteth out fear."

1st Corinthians 13: 11-13
"When I was a child,
I spake as a child,
I understood as a child,
I thought as a child,
But when I become a man,
I put away childish things.
For now we see through a glass darkly.
But then face to Face,
(When we see our Lord Jesus in Glory)
(We will see things clearly, have all wisdom)
Now I know in part,
Then shall I know even as I am known.
And now abideth,
These three,
But the greatest of these is charity."

Matthew 25: 8
Jesus answered the, saying
"Verily, I say unto you,
In as much as ye have done it,
Unto one of these my brethren,
Ye have done it unto Me."

Psalm 25:4-7
"Show me Thy ways, O Lord,
Teach me Thy paths,
Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me,
For Thou art the God of my salvation,
On Thee do I wait all the day.
Remember, O Lord, Thy tender mercies
And Thy loving kindnesses,
For they have been ever of old.
Remember not the sins of youth,
Nor my transgressions.
According to Thy mercy,
Remember Thou me, for Thy Goodness sake, O Lord."

Isaiah 41: 10-13
"Fear thou not for I am with thee.
Be not dismayed for I am thy God.
I will strengthen thee,
Yea, I will help thee,
Yea, I will uphold thee
With my right hand of my righteousness.
Behold all they that were incensed against thee,
Shall be ashamed and confounded.
They shall be as nothing,
And they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them,
And thou shalt not find them,
Even them that contended with thee.
They that war against you,
They shall be as nothing,
and a thing of naught.
For I the Lord, thy God, will hold thy right hand,
Saying to thee
Fear not I will help thee."

Joshua 1: 9
"Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and be of good courage,
Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed,
For the Lord...Your God, is with you, wherever you go"

Revelation 3: 20-22a
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock,
If any man hear My voice,
And open the door, I will come in to him,
And will sup with him, and he with Me.
To Him that overcometh.
Will I grant to sit with Me in My Throne,
Even as I also overcame,
And am set down with My Father in His Throne.
He that hath an ear, let him hear."

\o/ Praise the Living Word of Almighty God - Jesus Christ \o/


His hand, His precious nail scarred hand,
Changes lives of sinful men,
Giving peace and joy within.
It knocks at the door of the heart,
Ready new life to impart,
And lift from the state of sin.

Our souls are rescued as we pray,
Crying out from miry clay,
It is by His hand weíre freed.
That hand we heard so softly knock,
Plants our feet on solid Rock,
And it meets our every need.

His precious hand is always there,
Lifting the burdens we bear,
Oh, how He loves you and me!
The hand of Christ, our Lord and King,
Is the hand to which we cling,
Till His Glowing face we see.

When we reach Heavenís gate, my friend,
His hand will welcome us in,
As He greets us at the door.
In that great and glorious place,
We shall see our Saviourís face,
And praise Him forevermore,
What a Precious Hand Indeed!

John 18: 31
"Then said Jesus...
To those Jews, which believed on Him.
'If ye continue in My Word.
Then are ye My Disciples indeed.
And ye shall know the truth,
And the truth shall set and make you free."

Matthew 5: 11-16
"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you,
And persecute you,
And shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,
For My sake.
And be exceedingly glad,
For great is your reward in Heaven.
For so persecuted they the Prophets,
Which were before you.
Ye are the salt of the earth,
But if the salt have lost his savor,
Wherewith shall it be salted?
It is thenceforth good for nothing,
But to be cast out,
And to be trodden under foot of men.
Ye are the light of the world,
A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle,
And put it under a bushel,
But on a candlestick,
And it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men,
That they may see your good works,
And glorify your Father, which is in heaven."

Be Patient..Be loving...Be Gracious...Forgiving...Kind,
It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
One look upon His Face, all tears and sorrow will erase,
Be bold, be courageous, be faithful and obedient to God's Word
It will be worth it all when we see Jesus, in our eternal Home, Heaven.

Cars are not the only things being recalled by their creator.
Be ready, dear hearts, cling to Jesus, He is our Savior and deliverer.

May our Almighty God Who watches over us and guides us from above.
Grant you the richest blessings of His everlasting love.
May He grant true happiness and everlasting joy to you.
On this very day and always, this whole year through...Amen

May our hope and strength be in Jesus Christ and may He
Lead, feed, fill, guide and provide for each and everyone of us.
As we trust in the Lord our God with all of our hearts, minds
And Spirits, and lean not upon our own understanding,
but in all of our ways, we shall acknowledge the Lord,
And the Lord, shall direct our paths...This is God's Word,
His desire is that we walk in health and prosper as we prosper in His Word.

Please dear hearts, be sweet, loving, kind, reflections of Jesus today,
Be the Light to the lost, the hurting, the world, be like Jesus today.
Be all the Lord desires in you, how to know? Read God's Word.
God's Word is our instruction book, our road-map for life...Remember
You may be the only "Bible" a hurting, lost soul ever read
