make me brave, life brings . . .

God, make me brave for life

oh, braver than this.

Let me straighten after pain,

as a tree straightens after the rain,

Shining and lovely again….

God, make me brave for life

much braver than this.

As the blown grass lifts, let me rise

From sorrow with quiet eyes,

Knowing Thy way is wise…..

God, make me brave, life brings

Such blinding things.

Help me to keep my sight;

Help me to see aright

That out of dark comes light.

O Lord our God, under the shadow of Thy wings let us hope. 

Thou wilt support us, both when little and even to gray hairs.

When our strength is of Thee, it is strength

 but, when our own, it is feebleness

 We return unto Thee,

O Lord, that from their weariness our soul may rise towards Thee

leaning on the thing which Thou has created

 and passing on to Thyself

who hast wonderfully made them

for with Thee is refreshment and true strength

Amen

Yes Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so
Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak but he is strong

Yes Jesus loves me
Oh, yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so

Pressing on the up away
Always guide me Lord I pray
Undeserving, and stubbornly never fail to love me still

Yes Jesus loves me
Oh yes Jesus loves me
Oh yes Jesus loves me, for the Bible tells me so
Yes Jesus loves me, love
Oh yes Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so
For the Bible tells me so

(Feels so good to know) that I’m never alone
See, sometimes I’m lonely but never alone
For the Bible tells, for the Bible tells
For the Bible tells me so

See I know that he loves me
Whether I’m right, whether I’m wrong

We have truly lost one of the greats. I always love her songs. Listen to the icon’s still-powerful rendition of Yes, Jesus Loves Me.

How great is your goodness, dear Lord!

Blessed are you for ever!

May all created things praise you, O God,

for loving us so much that we can truthfully speak

of your fellowship with mankind, even in this earthly exile

and however virtuous we may be,

our virtue always depends on your great warmth

and generosity, dear Lord.

Your bounty is infinite.

How wonderful are your works!

You are included in my prayers and this is my prayer verse for each one of you. . .

from 3John1:2: “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” In Jesus Name, may the favor of the Lord be upon you and your household as you fully DELIGHT IN HIS WORDS.

WHATEVER YOU ASK, MAY YOU RECEIVE
WHATEVER YOU SEEK, MAY YOU FIND
WHATEVER YOU WISH, MAY IT BE FULFILLED

I thank God for you! You are one of God’s most beautiful creations!
You are fearfully and wonderfully made and you’re precious in His sight!

Always remember to give thanks to God for He is good and His love endures forever!

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High


To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night


Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery … upon the harp with a solemn sound


For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work …  I will triumph in the works of thy hands


O LORD, how great are thy works… and thy thoughts are very deep.


Psalms 92:1-5
