Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

“Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

And Jesus Gave to Us | All Remains Praise

December 12, 2017 - Author: Bernadette Saddik

“And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, ‘Take, eat: this is My body.’
And He took the cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
And He said unto them, ‘This is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.'” Mark 14:22-24 KJV

I cut my hair
my heart
one day.
Bled tears of joy
more tears of pain.

What sorrow, Lord,
is this I taste?

“Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, our secret sins in the light of Thy countenance.” Psalm 90:8 KJV

Lord, cut the
bindings from my head.
Lord, bleed away
my dreams misled.

What spaces, Lord,
have You so graced?

“Return, O Lord! How long?…O, satisfy us early with Thy mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90:13a, 14 NKJV

I cut into
much doubt
much rage.
Bled tears of youth
and tears of age.

What sweetness, Lord,
makes way, makes haste?

“Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish Thou the work of our hands upon us…” Psalm 90:17a, b KJV

Lord, cut the
shackles from my hands.
Lord, bleed away
my misplaced plans.

What sickness, Lord,
bides far from waste?

“Make us glad according to the days wherein Thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil…So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalm 90:15, 12 KJV

There will be nothing left, save
for myself now saved…
yet out of all the remains,
for this to remain…

Most Holy God,
my God,
is a gift. A gift I will
strive and race and run to lift
to You in praise
for the rest of my days in
forever as I
–Lord have mercy–
as I pray to proclaim:

Blessed be the name of the LORD
from this time forth,
and even forever more.

“O King of kings and Lord of lords,
how great is Thy goodness!
To the praise of the glory of His grace,
wherein He has made us accepted in the beloved,
blessed be the name of the LORD
from this time forth and even forever more.”
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one God, Amen.

1 Timothy 6:15, Psalm 31:19, Ephesians 1:6, Psalm 113:2 KJV

Breathe, Sing, Dance | Alive in Christ

April 22, 2016 - Author: Bernadette Saddik

“…for it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:12b KJV

Heart sing, come dance, breathe again, vibrant and alive.
Heart dance, come breathe, sing again, vibrant and alive.
Heart breathe, come sing, dance again, vibrant and alive.

Lift your weary head.
Feel the weight release.
Stand up straight,
and pour out all the anguishing debris.

Let’s breathe soundly to salvation-hued freedom tunes.
Lord have mercy. Have mercy on us. Hear us and have mercy.

Breathe in
(Kyrie)
Breathe out
(Eleison)
Inhale and exhale, inhale and exhale
Have mercy.
Lord hear us.
Have mercy O Lord.

Look up at the sky.
Feel the glowing light.
Be still, soul,
and dance tenderly, anxious beating heart.

Let’s sing a deep-rising hymn of our faithful Friend.
Sing heartbeat — lub dub, lub dub, lub dub.

Softly
(Lub dub)
Tenderly
(Lub dub)
For Jesus calls earnestly
Lub dub,
Heartbeat
Sing.

Come dance in the rain.
Feel the raindrops cleanse.
Embrace the grace
and the bright hope falling into place.

Let’s dance in the circle of God’s unending love.
Rain on me, Lord. Rain in me, Lord. Reign in me, Lord.

Eastward
(Rain)
Westward
(Rain)
Throughout the spaces in between
Rain on,
Rain in,
Reign in me Lord.

Let Christ restore green pastures,
And so sing and dance and breathe in joy again.

Vibrant and Alive.

“I will sing unto the Lord, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.” Psalm 13:6 KJV

Jesus, take these words… | A Life of Love

March 2, 2015 - Author: Bernadette Saddik

“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.'” Galatians 5:13-14 KJV

Jesus, take my ears —
Comfort with them, make patience.
Help me hear better.

Jesus, take my eyes —
Understand with them, make light.
Guide me to see more.

Jesus, take my lips —
Encourage with them, make joy.
Let me minister.

Jesus, take my feet —
Outreach with them, make brothers.
Direct me forward.

Jesus, take my hands —
Heal with them, make melodies.
Shape me to do so.

Jesus, take my heart —
Inspire with it, make kindness.
Teach me compassion.

Jesus, take my mind —
Seek with it, make discernment.
Show me Your wonders.

Jesus, here’s my life —
Fulfill my purpose in You.
I give You my love.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20 KJV

Jesus, take these words
