More Than I Could Dream


From my sister, Victoria, "I would tell people it's not enough to lead people to Christ....you have to show them how to live for Christ, and the best way to do that is live your life in front of them."

Abiding in Christ, in the secret place,
is my desire
To live a life of faith,
as I'm transformed and changed to trust and obey
It's only through Christ, and his mercy and grace


Thank you, Lord, for giving me this life
Thank you, Lord, for my heart's desires
Thank you, Lord, for blessing me,
more than I ever could dream


In this world of  hurt, filled with broken/ lives,
 we're called to serve
and to redeem the time.
With God's word as our guide, we work side by side
Together we learn to live our lives for Christ


Thank you, Lord, for giving me this life
Thank you, Lord, for my heart's desires
Thank you, Lord, for blessing me
more than I ever could dream

This life you have given, I offer to you.
I pray I'm found faithful in all that I do
Thank....you,.... thank...... you,
for more than I  ever could dream
More... than I...could dream..................


 
This song is based on information given to me, by my sister, Victoria. Here's what she had to say:

I would tell people it's not enough to lead people to Christ....you have to show them how to live for Christ, and the best way to do that is to live your life in front of them. People need help living a Godly life....so we help them...We're invested in the lives of the people we lead...we're with them every day...pretty hard to hide your life when you're living it in front of them....

I woke up this morning at 4:13...my first thought was, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" which is Philippians 4:13. I like it because God has put me in a position in this ministry where I have had to trust him completely for everything....so many things that only through Christ could I have done any of it.

 Something I would sing to the Lord is, "THANK YOU! For giving me this life, transforming me, using me to help others and blessing me with the desires of my heart.

I don't know if this is a phrase or a theme, but I believe the key to life is obedience. There are things that I know are right to do...and I pray every day that I do them. It is my desire to live a life that is pleasing to God. That really is my life goal.

Favorite chapters...all of these tell us how we should live.
Romans 8 & 12 (Romans 12:1,2)
Psalm 91 (Psalm 91:1)
Galatians 5 & 6
Colossians 3
Ephesians 5 (Eph 5:16)
Philippians 4 (Phil.4:13)
