...neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Neh 8:10

It is a most precious thing to feel the weight of seperation, silence, aggression wash over you, from all many quarters and still know the presence of the Lord in the midst of it all. The Rock is firm, the anchor holds and the promise of calm in the midst of the storm rings true.

It is such a blessing to know that we have inherited the Spirit of Jesus who has conquered every grief, every trial, every temptation through his determination to trust His Father no matter what!

Thank you dear Saviour for your efforts on our behalf. Your Character is so precious, your mind is so beautiful, your heart is so strong and yet so tender. I worship you Son of the living God. To you I give  power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. I bow with the 4 living creatures and the 24 elders and honour your mighty name.

Indeed the Joy of the Lord is my strength. I praise you Father for your most excellent Son. How proud you must be of Him! How much you must love Him! Upon no one else could your Government rest with such security, wisdom, power and knowledge.

I know that you hear me Father through your most excellent Son - the Lord Jesus

Amen
