Wonderful story! I dare you to do it again

At a Wednesday evening church meeting a very wealthy man rose to give his testimony.
“I’m a millionaire,” he said, “and I attribute it all to the rich blessings of God in my life. I can still remember the turning point in my faith, like it was yesterday:
I had just earned my first dollar and I went to a church meeting that night.
The speaker was a missionary who told about his work.
I knew that I only had a dollar bill and had to either give it all to God’s work or nothing at all.
So at that moment I decided to give my whole dollar to God.
I believe that God blessed that decision, and that is why I am a rich man today.”
As he finished it was clear that everyone had been moved by this man’s story.
But, as he took his seat, a little old lady sitting in the same pew leaned over and said: “Wonderful story! I dare you to do it again!”

for KING & COUNTRY – burn the ships

Comment of the group

Are there ships you need to burn in your life? What from your past has kept you silent and held you back from freedom? This album, ‘Burn the Ships’ was conceived when my wife, Courtney was battling addiction and all that comes along with it…. She one day chose to literally “flush the pills”, and never look back. Now we invite you to stand with us – leave the past behind, step into a new day, and ‘Burn the Ships’.

The ships (struggles, bad habits, insecurities, distractions, and addictions) in our lives that need to be burned. Your ship is the largest negative aspect of your life that consumes you, your thoughts, and your daily being. These ships look completely different for each individual, yet everyone has them.

My comment : Sometimes we need to turn the page and look forward. Do not look backward. What you wanted to keep. Let it go. Your ship sometimes needs to be burnt. Your ship is the symbole to your old life. You still can go back with your ship. If you burn it you should stay. Your problem is past.

 

Step into a new day
We can rise up from the dust and walk away
We can dance upon our heartache, yeah
So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
And don’t you look back

For king and country – joy

For King and country – Joy

 

Recently I just discover this group. I must say that I am falling in love with all their production. The fist title I discover was joy. I was sad and just listening to this gave me simply joy.

For King and Country is a Christian pop duo composed of Australian brothers Joel Luke Smallbone. In 2015 they win the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song.

They declare :

The power of music can impact our mood, emotions, our day. But when you merge the strength of music with the heart, hope and passion of the Gospel… it has the ultimate power not only to change someone’s day, but to impact them for eternity. This is why we write music and sing songs – we hope that people will be moved, encouraged and stirred to live a life for Someone greater than themselve

 

verse 1: Luke Smallbone]
Lately, I’ve been reading, watching the nightly news
Can’t seem to find the rhythm, just wanna sing the blues
Feels like a song that never… stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

[Pre-Chorus: Joel Smallbone]
Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
Before my heart, heart, turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three

[Chorus 1: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you

[Verse 2: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Yeah-eh, back when I was young, my eyes were full of life
But now that I am older, I live at the speed of light
Feels like the cycle never… stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

[Pre-Chorus: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
Before my heart, heart, turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three

[Chorus 2: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night
Oh, with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you

[Bridge: Luke Smallbone]
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay

[Turn]

[Chorus 3: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
And I choose joy
Let it move you, go let it move, go let it move you
Oh, I choose joy
Let it move you, oh let it move, let it move you
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night
Oh, with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose joy
Go let it move you, go let it move, go let it move you

[Outro: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay

 

An other joyfull song : Family Force 5 This is my year

Warriors for Christ’ Facebook Page Shutdown

An outspoken West Virginia pastor who has openly criticized the LGBT movement with his ministry “Warriors for Christ” is now facing another battle after Facebook shut down the ministry’s page for what it calls “hate speech.”

In a press release posted on Tuesday to his personal Social Cross page, Penkoski informed his followers, instead of petitioning Facebook to put his page back up again, he and four others are are now petitioning the Federal Court in the Northern District of West Virginia to enjoin the Governor and Attorney General from legally respecting, endorsing, and recognizing gay marriage or any statute that asserts that sexual orientation is a civil rights matter.

Although the Facebook page was reinstated on Jan. 2 after an online petition was launched calling for Facebook to republish the page, Facebook administrators again took the Warriors for Christ page down last Friday.

While Penkoski said he did not receive an explanation the first time the page was unpublished on Dec. 29, he says he did receive an email from Facebook explaining why the page was removed on Jan. 5 and left with no way to appeal the decision.

The Facebook policy on hate speech states that content is removed if it “attacks” people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender and gender identity.

“These are not violations of community standards,” Penkoski said of the posts removed by Facebook. “Facebook may not like it but it is not a violation of anything. It is not hurtful. It is not obscene. It’s not attacking. It’s not threatening. We are Christians. We don’t do that.”

Penkoski is one of the founders of the new Christian social media alternative launched last year called SocialCross.org. The platform was inspired by Penkoski’s own personal suspensions from Facebook for posting about his opposition to the LGBT agenda. Over 12,000 users have joined the site.

Слова и музыка Ковалева Н.А. (KNA)
Любовью Твоею
I
Мы предаем Христа ежедневно,
Не дорожим минутой бесценной,
Куда спешим, так пряча взор?
Но Ты стучишь к нам в дверь неизменно
И к сердцу ключ подбираешь степенно,
Зачем идем дорогой слез?
А может быть ты вспомнишь?
Как Божий Сын страдал,
Где на кресте Великий бесславно умирал,
Там кровь Его стекала, что и есть вся жизнь твоя,
Он умер, не считая, кто больше грешен ты или я?
Кто больше грешен ты или я?
Припев:
Любовью Твоею мы спасены,
Любовью Твоею вновь рождены!
Любовью Своею Ты создал меня,
Любовью Твоею живет вся земля!
II
Стремись к добру и свету, беги от сети зла,
Бог любит человека, путь спасенья есть всегда,
Он искупил нас жертвой, Агнец заклан за тебя,
Живи теперь с надеждой, взирая в небеса!
Взирая в небеса!
Припев:
Любовью Твоею мы спасены,
Любовью Твоею вновь рождены!
Любовью Своею Ты создал меня,
Любовью Твоею живет вся земля!
Живет вся земля!

 

 

English translation

Words and music Ковалева Н.А. (KNA)
By Your Love
I
We betray Christ daily,
Do not cherish a minute of priceless,
Where are we hurrying, so hiding our eyes?
But You knock on our door invariably
And to the heart you select the key sedately,
Why are we going to dear tears?
Or maybe you’ll remember?
As God’s Son suffered,
Where on the cross the Great ingloriously died,
There His blood was drained, which is the whole of your life,
He died, not counting who is more sinful than you or me?
Who is more sinful than you or me?
Chorus:
By Thy love we are saved,
By Your Love are born again!
By Your Love You created me,
All earth lives by your Love!
II
Strive for the good and the light, run from the evil network,
God loves man, the way of salvation is always,
He redeemed us with a sacrifice, The Lamb was slain for you,
Live now with hope, looking to heaven!
Looking to the heavens!
Chorus:
By Thy love we are saved,
By Your Love are born again!
By Your Love You created me,
All earth lives by your Love!
The whole earth lives!
