Getting High

I spent some time getting high this week. It's been a while since I prostrated before the Lord through fasting and prayer.  This was a one day affair and It was awesome....I feel so refreshed and rejuvenated in my Spirit. I was pressing for Higher dimensions in my spiritual life and praising God for all He has done for me. The Hymn below sums it up for me.

Higher Ground (Charles Gabriel)

I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Refrain:
Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,
A higher plane than I have found;
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where those abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

I want to scale the utmost height

Fill My Cup Lord

Like the woman at the well, I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy.
And then I heard my Savior speaking—
“Draw from My well that never shall run dry.”
Fill my cup, Lord;
I lift it up Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.
There are millions in this world who are seeking
For pleasures earthly goods afford.
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.
Fill my cup, Lord;
I lift it up Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.
So my brother if the things that this world gives you
Leave hungers that won’t pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you
If you kneel to Him and humbly pray—
Fill my cup, Lord;
I lift it up Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.

Let Go and Let God

I am so overwhelmed to know that God delights in uncommon, illogical, supernatural manifestation of His power, sovereignty and divinity.  God's ideal does not need to make logical human sense.

Below are a few biblical examples of God defying every human logic/reasoning:

Exodus 15:22-25
Then Moses made Israel set out from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of Shur. They went three days in the wilderness and found no water. When they came to Marah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah. And the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?”And he cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a log,and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.
Human thinking/reasoning: This water is bitter!! How can a log make this water drinkable? this log is not sugar?! If anything, it may make things even worse.
Our Sovereign and Omnipotent God Answers:  Read Job 38-40.

Genesis 41:38-43
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph

Jesus Is My All

Jesus Is All The World To MeLyrics: Will L. Thompson


Jesus is all the world to me:
  My life, my joy, my all.
He is my strength from day to day;
  Without Him I would fall.
When I am sad, to Him I go;
No other one can cheer me so.
When I am sad, He makes me glad;
  He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me,
  My Friend in trials sore.
I go to Him for blessings, and
  He gives them o’er and o’er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain;
He sends the harvest’s golden grain:
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain—
  He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me,
  And true to Him I’ll be.
Oh, how could I this Friend deny
  When He’s so true to me?
Following Him I know I’m right;
He watches o’er me day and night.
Following Him by day and night,
  He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me,
  I want no better friend.
I trust Him now; I’ll trust Him when
  Life’s fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend;
Beautiful life that has no end!
Eternal life, eternal joy,
  He’s my Friend.

Of Brotherly Love

I met my brother in 2007 at church.  I remember during the greeting time when everyone welcomed and greeted each other, he stood by the entrance door observing everyone with a smile just taking everything in.  He had introduced himself to the congregation earlier during or visitors welcome and where he was from. 

After service, as we were driving home, I saw him walking towards the metro station all alone and I felt the need to stop and offer him a ride.

We stopped and offered him a ride but on the way we extended an invitation to stop by our home for lunch first which he accepted. Subsequently we hosted my brother after service each week until it was time for him to return to his homeland across the seas on another continent.

We had such a good time fellowshipping after church each week. We ate, sang, laughed shared stories of life experiences, laughed some more, took pictures and had a great time.  Coming down to the end of his stay, my brother, a very talented and educated artist ske…
