your name

Somebody was writing your name yesterday in the sky with an airplane. I had to take a picture. Even your name is strong...I remind myself of that often.

i'm back

There are so many things I have on my heart to do since coming back from Africa. It's hard to have my heart in two different places. I want to make a difference there more than ever, while not diluting what I am trying to do to make a difference here. I'm sure you will help me sort all of this out. I know you have a plan.

Love you,

One of my favorite songs of all time...had it in my heart all week long...

Help me Lord to reach as many people as I can for Your glory...

This is an excerpt from my Steams in the Desert devotional today:

"And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered" (Joel 2:32).

Whosoever means me, for it means anybody and everybody who calls upon God. I will therefore follow the leading of the text, and at once call upon the glorious Lord who has made so large a promise. My case is urgent, and I do not see how I am to be delivered; but this is no business of mine. He who makes the promise will find ways and means of keeping it. It is mine to obey His commands; it is not mine to direct His counsels. I am His servant, not His solicitor. I call upon Him, and He will deliver. --C. H. Spurgeon

Deanna here again:

Yes, the case is urgent. But you are a covenant keeping God and you do the delivering. We are just expected to simply obey. Making that personal, I am expected to obey.

I will give all for you, Lord. All. Holding nothing back ~ surrendering absolutely all to you.

All means all. Just like it says. But that's so loaded. I don't think any of us really knows what we are saying when we say "all" until more things unfold that you require of us. But more and more I'm finding new ways to offer you my all. I never dreamed of what just might be required of us in the end times. It all seemed so far away before but now I sense your coming is so close at hand.

I am preparing myself for whatever you may ask of me.

I am Your servant. Be it unto me according to Your Word.

Thank you Jesus that you promised to be with us always even unto the end of the age.

I trust in you.

best friend

Queen? No... this is my version for you, Jesus...

Ooh, you make me live
Whatever your love can give to me
It's you, you're all I see
Ooh, you make me live now Jesus
Ooh, you make me live
Oh, you're the best friend
That I ever had
I've been with you such a long time
You're my sunshine
And I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you (Ooh)
Oh, you're my best friend

Ooh, you make me live
Ooh, I've been wandering round
But I still come back to you (still come back to you)
In rain or shine
You've stood by me Lord
I'm happy at home (happy at home)
You're my best friend

Ooh, you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you, to help me forgive - oo oo ooh
Ooh, you make me live now Jesus
Ooh, you make me live

Oh, you're the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I'll never be lonely
You're my only one
And I love the thing
I really love the things that you do
Oh, you're my best friend

Oh, ooh, you make me live
I'm happy (happy at home)
You're my best friend
Oh, oh, you're my best friend
Ooh, you make me live
Oo oo ooh
You, you're my best friend
