I Have No Fear In Jesus
I have no fear in Jesus,
There is no fear in Jesus,
For there is nothing Satan can do,
To change the Victory
The Lord has Won for me,
And so to Jesus I’ll always be true.
If you should look for Him,
You’ll find Him waiting there,
To share your heavy load,
And ease your every care,
So open wide your door
And let Him Dwell in you
For in Jesus we have no fear.
So come and praise The Lord
For all He’s done for you,
His Love is Perfect,
His Love is Ever True,
So testify of Him,
Uplift His Holy Name,
For in Jesus we have no fear.

When You hung there on that Cross at Calvary
It was the generations ahead that You could see.
Men and women, girls and boys,
All deceived by Satan’s ploys,
And crying out, alone with their misery.
When You hung there on that Cross You bled for me,
Your heart ached for the pain that You could see.
You saw that desperate need,
And with Your death You sowed a seed
That would lead me straight to God through Calvary.
Despite the blackness of our hearts that You saw then,
You still cried ‘Abba, Father – I’ll die for them!
In Your compassion for man’s loss
You went so meekly to the Cross
And gladly paid the price at Calvary.
Oh, My Saviour! What a joy should fill our hearts,
For in Your Master Plan we each have parts!
We all can play a role!
We too can help men to be whole,
Through the Victory won for us at Calvary!

Christ is there for you too, in the midst of the deprivation, in the midst of the squalid living conditions,
in the midst of the violence Christ The Holy Son of God is there with you, walking side by side
Isaiah 53:6 KJV
“All we like sheep have gone astray: we have turned every one to his own way: and the Lord hath laid on
Him the iniquity of us all”
It is a time for prayer, a time for genuinely seeking the Face of God and a
time for repentance. It is a time to turn from believing the disbelieving and catastrophically false and
misleading words of politicians and scientists but to return wholeheartedly to believing and trusting Our
Heavenly Father who will turn all things to our advantage if we lift up Holy hands and pray.
Put your trust in HIM and none other, humble yourselves before Him and intercede for your Nation and He WILL hear you.
Father, this has been a hard lesson to learn.
From windy hills and barren places
I’ve cried out to You to talk to me.
Sometimes Your answer has come so late
I have despaired, and searched my soul
For error or for sin.
I’ve stood on Your Word,
Believed in Your Provision,
And stared at the dark shadows all around me.
But suddenly in the stillness of night,
Surrounded by Your Peace,
I begin to understand.
I perceive the hold my wants and needs
Have upon me and am staggered.
Is it really so important,
What I eat, what I wear,
When You have clothed me in righteousness,
And spread out Your Table before me?
Oh Father, now I truly see,
Nothing else matters – only You.

A Life Of Praise
I place my heart between Your Hands in humble offering,
And sacrifice my will at the foot of Your Throne.
I cast aside all worldly aims and proud ambition
That I might live my life to bring glory to Your Name!
Let it be a sweet savour unto You Lord!
Let my heart beat on with Yours in one accord!
Let my lips cry out to all, my God is Worthy!
Let my life enable others to hear Your Call!
Let my heart lie next to Yours in adoration!
Let my mouth sing out anew with songs of praise!
Let Christians all around bring acclamation
To their God By Whom The Universe was made!

The Way Of The Cross
What would you have me say about serving The Lord?
That it’s fun? That it’s easy?
Should I not speak of those times of inner searching
That will cause you to cry out as one in torment?
Nor mention those occasions when your heart will ache,
And you will thirst as one lost amidst the deserts dry and gritty dunes,
Fearing you will never hear His Voice again?
Moments when the aridity of the Wilderness,
Or the depths of the Valley seem too great for your soul to bear?
Yet if I speak not of these things how do I help you?
For you must crave what lies beyond
the pain of these experiences,
And discover for yourself
the perfection of His Salvation
And the nature of His Greater Plan for you, and all mankind.
Victory lies waiting at the end of your particular tunnel
If you will but pass through it.
If we would have Him change our wooden vessels into chalices
Of gold we must realise that we too must pay a price.
We who earnestly seek to hear the very heart-beat of our Living God
Must also be prepared to spend our time in Gethsemane,
And having endured Gethsemane still have the courage and devotion
To go on to our own personal Calvary.
Only if we have done all these things shall we even begin
To perceive the Wonder of our God, or the Nature of His Love for us.
Shall I tell you that it’s easy…or shall I simply say He’s worth any

Scaling The Peak
Each move I make is another step
Along Your special path,
So many steps must still be made,
And sometimes the climbing seems hard,
But when I reach that shining peak
Where I will meet my Lord,
How tiny will those steps appear
When compared with my reward!

The toll of city life today and the ACTUAL price we pay!
The High Places
It’s easy to delight in Him in the midst of the Golden Field, ripe and scented with the
sweet aroma of herbs and flowers, but it’s not so easy to believe and trust when we
find ourselves on the rocky outcrop to which that sweet-smelling field leads.
We gaze silently at its bleak and barren aspect and turning our heads look back
upon the path our feet so recently travelled with such joy and gladness.
The way ahead does not look welcoming. Can it be the right
path we wonder?
Should we, can we,
go further? Yes, the path IS there but it is here
that we must put
down all our talents and ‘works’ for Him, together with our fanciful imaginings of
glory and power, and gazing steadfastly at Him
learn to WAIT
and to HEAR
we are sure we are following His leading
and not secretly seeking to exalt ourselves
in our ‘service’ to Him. When we have truly
in relation to our work
He shows us we can pick up those burdens again if we will, but now we will know
more clearly what to take. Sorrowfully we look upon Pride and Ambition, knowing
now what a large part they played in getting us thus far when all along we thought we
were being pure and holy. We turn from these and look at the other burdens we
carried up to this point, self-esteem and hidden sin, carefully concealed avarice
and greed, and we feel no desire for these things either. So what is left? We bend
down and pick up that one remaining package we still feel we need, the one
marked ‘Knowledge’ and we carry it for a while. Knowledge of HIM
is first borne,
then known in the mind,
but then when it is experienced, head knowledge must
for we no longer need ‘knowledge’ when He is truly IN us,
our faith is no
longer a burden to be carried like a Cross upon our backs, we ARE faith!
When God shines in us, through us,
people will look at us and perceive HIM
His Beauty and they will fall down and CRY to know the Living God.
shall we truly be vessels, only then
are we full of His Life not our own.
That last parcel called ‘knowledge’ was discarded along the way when we started to be
what our earthbound selves merely had us doing
The external façade
has at last become an internal reality,
but one unpolluted
by earthbound ideals.

The world is full of aching hearts,
Full of fear, dulled hope and pain;
People afraid to count the cost,
Merely hoping it’s not in vain.
So many are trapped in emptiness,
They’re the lost in hot pursuit
Of imagined prizes and worthless goals,
Idols held in high repute.
How God must weep as He watches
While they seek as their common goal
The riches of a transient world,
Not Salvation for the soul.
When will they see the futility
Of their endless toil and strife?
One day they’ll see what their idols cost –
The Gift of Eternal Life!

“Aching hearts, full of fear, dulled hope and pain”,
those few words describe the way far too many of us live our lives today,
refusing to admit what it actually does cost us physically, emotionally,
spiritually, just to get through another day. We know in our hearts that it is
all in vain, that tomorrow will be exactly the same, and the day after that, and the day after that.
The Apostle Paul wrote that “Spiritual truths are spiritually discerned”, but few of us today are
really looking for spiritual solutions for problems we perceive as belonging to our
Modern World, and far too complex for God to be the only answer we need. I did too.
I had no-one to open my eyes to the truth, to guide my feet along the right path.
I met with God when I was very, very small, too young to understand all I needed
to understand so of course I stumbled and fell very often as I grew up.
My childhood was not a happy one and even when I was young I would wonder
‘What is the point? Why am I here? Why was I ever even born?’, but even though
I wandered far from God feeling lonely and afraid, I later discovered
that He had never ONCE let go of my hand, although I had most certainly let go of His!
Why not spend a little time with me on my other website too,
sharing some of my heartache and despair will help you find healing and explanations
for your own. I promise you it’s not a BORING read and it’s only
a click away…JOIN ME, you have absolutely nothing to lose and
so very much to gain!

In a horrifying new development I awake to hear my Mother groaning in the kitchen and our situation goes from bad to worse.
Uplifting and inspiring Christian Verse
(Printed with permission of Sylvia Darling author of "Lost and Found - The Other Side Of Me")
Friendship is a marvellous thing,
A rarity to find !
The meeting of a kindred soul,
A matching of the mind.
A common understanding
When no words need be said,
This is what we yearn for,
Else a part of us lies dead.
Emotions that are never aired,
Like many hurts never shared,
Are seldom fully understood,
To analyse together is good.
Comparison perspective brings
Then once again the spirit sings,
Such are the benefits friendship can give,
So stretch out your hand and start to live !
The Lord would always have us reach out to our Christian brothers and sisters,
especially in times of need or those moments of despair we all experience from time to time.
Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in your heart and don’t let timidity hold you back.
