What hath I to bring?

Meditations at Gethsemane

O what hath I to bring, when I doth come
to Thee who sittest on Thy throne above?
I look upon my hands, and softly weep,
for who can so compare to Thy great love?
For me Thou comest down from heav’n to earth,
a frail sweet babe, so gentle, harmless, mild.
For me Thou comest down to labour, serve,
amidst the foes who scorn and wrongly chide.
For me Thou prayest, sweeting beads of blood,
that God the Father keep my way in Thee.
For me Thou shedst Thy blood to save my soul,
when Thou wast hanged by them at Calvary.
For me Thou layest down Thy sinless life,
when still I yet had sinned, and was Thy foe.
Such gracious holy love! so pure, divine,
to save this fading dust on earth below.
O, only praise and thanks I bring to Thee,
and raise this pray’r: that…

Good Morning November 30

Powerful post.

Life's Meaning Ministry's Blog

Why were Jesus and the Pharisees at such odds with each other? Jesus didn’t reject the Jewish worship at the Temple or the synagogue. He didn’t reject the laws of Moses. In fact, on a couple of occasions he sent people to them to do as they instructed. Rather, they had established such a rigid system with the laws that they lost all sense of grace and caring for the good of the people. And because they were keepers of the law, their pride of position elevated themselves above everyone else. They had lost sight of all that the law and the prophets were pointing to. It’s easy for us to sit here 2000 years removed and judge them for their hardness of heart, but we must always be careful not to fall into their same patterns of life. Rigidity for the way we’ve always done things is at time…

The Way Of Cain


Genesis 4:16 – And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

We can learn a great deal from Cain. The story of Cain and Abel is found in Genesis 4. Cain represents the world, and he also represents our first nature, our flesh nature. By looking at the life of Cain, the way of Cain, we can understand great truths taught in the written Word of God. We can see what the world is, what the world stands for, and who the world serves. We see the vileness of our flesh, we see that our flesh does not know God, cannot comprehend God, will not receive God, does not love God.

1 John 3:12 says that Cain was of that wicked one. The wicked one is the devil. Cain was of the devil. The devil was…

(un)Converted Income |LoM Part 1/4:Faith

One More Straw

10“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. 11If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? 13No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Luke 16:10-13

Jesus makes a connection here between faith, love, devotion and service that if we ignore we will perhaps inadvertently be pulled into the worship of something other than God–Jesus cites money here because the worship of money is so prevalent. To worship…

” The Law from Your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold ” Psalm 119:72.
The Bible is God’s Word in a sense that No Other Book in the World is God’s Word. It is composed by many authors, over a period of many centuries, yet One Book, is, in itself, the Outstanding Miracle of the Ages bearing aloft its own evidence of its Superhuman Origin. The former American President George Washington said,” It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible “. According to Napoleon,” The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature, with a power that conquers all that oppose it “. Queen Victoria witnessed,” That Book accounts for the Supremacy of England “. Abraham Lincoln assured,” I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from…

Rock, Paper, Scissors, GOD’S LOVE.


In a game of rock, paper, scissors there are no winners. Each ‘weapon’ can win once and lose once and whether or not you pick the right one is guesswork.

Paper beats rock, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper, paper beats rock, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper…

Round and round and round in a never ending circle.

But I’ve found something better.
God’s love beats everything and nothing can beat it.

God’s love endures forever.

God’s love is attainable for all.

God’s love is given freely even though we don’t deserve it.

God’s love is MASSIVE. I can’t even begin to imagine just how big it really is.

So my prayer for the day is that God will pour his amazing love on me today. So much that it overflows. I pray everyone I meet will experience God’s love because I cannot help but share…

Pray When You Don’t Feel Like It

As A Little Child

This is my best advice for all people, in all walks of life, of all ages, all backgrounds, heck, even of all religions and none. Whatever your lifestyle, whatever your past, whatever your vices and virtues, whatever your failures and successes. However much you pray, however “good” you are at it. Pray when you don’t feel like it.

Why? Because we always need God, and He always makes it better. Always.

We always need our Creator, our Father, our Saviour.

Bl. Mother Teresa quote

If you don’t feel you can pray right, pray wrong. Even if you can’t help swearing, swear in prayer. God loves it.

Even the smallest prayer in the worst sinner, opens us to God’s infinite creative love and mercy. Throughout each day, we grow stale (the “righteous” especially), and we need to be reinvigorated. We close ourselves off, from God, from others, from creation, and from ourselves. In this dying world…
