Where is God? Sunday Glimpses

by Nan Jones   @NanJonesAuthor

Oh Lord, I lift up my voice in praise to You for You alone are worthy of our praise. You are the One True God, Maker of heaven and earth. You are mighty, wonderful, faithful, merciful, and good. Your love astounds me. Your grace washes over me like a cool stream of refreshing water in a parched and weary land. 

And Your Presence comforts me when I am afraid or unsettled. Thank You Lord. Yes, Your Presence is my sure place in the storm.

I pray for those who are hurting today - for those who are discouraged and overwhelmed with anxiety. Life is hard, Lord. You know this well. But You also promised us that You would deliver us out of ALL our afflictions as we trust in You and take You at Your word. We choose to believe You, Lord. We choose a thankful heart in spite of our circumstances. 

Come, Lord. Come and inhabit the praises of Your people. Set us free to worship You in Spirit and in Truth. Grant Your children the wings of eagles to rise above the storms and soar with You on heavenly heights. Thank You. Thank You for Your Word that sets us free - if we will only believe. 

We love You Lord. We magnify Your Name and rest in the beauty of Your holiness.

Are you in need of a quiet place to rest your thoughts from this crazy world? Do you feel the need to be reminded of how faithful and merciful the Lord is? That's why I created my facebook page, Seeing Beyond the Veil. It's like an oasis in the desert filled with scripture, worship songs, inspirational quotes ... things that will remind you that you belong to an awesome God. I'd love for you to stop by for a visit.

  1. My precious friend this means so much to me. Before I came over to visit your page I spent much time in prayer and praise. I read several of the Psalms at the end of the book about praising God. So your post just sang along right with me. Combining the two I began to sing in my spirit and felt the flowing of His Spirit within me and I could not help but look up the words for one of my favorite hymns to sing & sign and now I can't get it out of my heart and mind, nor do I want to:

    I stand amazed in the presence
    Of Jesus the Nazarene,
    And wonder how He could love me,
    A sinner condemned, unclean.
    How marvelous! How wonderful!
    And my song shall ever be:
    How marvelous! How wonderful!
    Is my Savior’s love for me!
    For me it was in the garden,
    He prayed: “Not my will, but Thine.”
    He had no tears for His own griefs,
    But sweat-drops of blood for mine.
    In pity angels beheld Him,
    And came from the world of light
    To strengthen Him in the sorrows
    He bore for my soul that night.
    He took my sins and my sorrows,
    He made them His very own;
    He bore the burden to Calv’ry,
    And suffered, and died alone.
    When with the ransomed in glory
    His face I at last shall see,
    ’Twill be my joy through the ages
    To sing of His love for me.

    How marvelous! How wonderful!
    And my song shall ever be:
    How marvelous! How wonderful!
    Is my Savior’s love for me!

    Thank you Jesus for being with me. For never leaving nor forsaking me even when I let my heart doubt and I walk in fear instead of faith. Thank you Nan for sharing this prayer. I love you :-)
