'Oh, praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, you who serve at night in the house of the Lord. Lift your hands toward the sanctuary, and praise the Lord . May the Lord, who made heaven and earth, bless you from Jerusalem.' Psalms 134:1-3 NLT
Advent is here – what does it mean?
According to google – “the arrival of a notable person” – imagine that!
Glory be to the Father and Saviour of our Lord Jesus Christ Who has given us the Light to shine in the darkness And that lights shines in our hearts So we can know the glory of God That is seen in the face of Jesus Christ It time to celebrate and give thanks to our Father For in Christ Jesus the sun is no longer our lights by day Nor the brightness of the moon is our light For in Him alone we have an everlasting light That shines brightly not only in us but radiates outwards
How was your weekend? Hope it was good.
My weekend, it was cold but lovely as I had lunch with friends. Watched the football matches. On Sunday – England played and WON! We are in the Quarter-Final. I was hoping Sengal won as they were the last of the Africans but better luck next time for them. We look foward to England v France – Lord have mercy on us.
On Saturday morning, I went for a long run. As I passed by London Bridge I noticed the river was unusually calm so I stopped to marvel at it. It did make me smile and just stop to take it all in.
And on Sunday at Church we had baptism. Seven people got baptised, praised the Lord and four of them are youth. We give thanks to the Lord our God.
As I watched the still river The stillness of the water How marvellous are the works of God And that my soul knows very well And then a boat went by and the waves came crashing And the peace was gone For then it reminded me that we are like clay jars In which God stores His treasure The real power is not from us but comes from God No matter the storm we are never crushed Even when we don't know what to do We never give up In times of trouble God is with us and when we are knocked down we get up again So this season of Advent is time to look up The Lord our God is good and His mercy endures forever 'I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding or a bride with her jewels. The Sovereign Lord will show his justice to the nations of the world. Everyone will praise him! His righteousness will be like a garden in early spring, with plants springing up everywhere.' Isaiah 61:10-11 NLT
