Be Bold, Be Strong for the Lord our God Is With Us

Faith, Youthwork and Family…

Jamie Grace – fighter

Seven bucks an hour

Bills stacked on the counter

Got a baby on the way, don’t have to feed

His pride is gettin’ torn down

His confidence is worn out

This ain’t the way he dreamed that it would be

But he won’t ever ask why

‘Cause he’s made up his mind

He’s a fighter, got that fire

When they thought he’d fade away

Throws a fist up, as he gets up

Feelin’ stronger everyday

When he gets down on his knees, he finds

The courage to believe

He’s a fighter, he’s a fighter

Who inspires me

She’s got no time for makeup

‘Cause she’s got three boys to wake up

Never thought she’d have to raise them on her own

And some days she feels like cryin’

But she’s holdin’ on, survivin’

On the love that makes their little house

A home

And she sees it in their eyes

All the reasons why, yeah

She’s a fighter, got that fire

When you thought she’d fade away

Throws a fist up, as she gets up

Feelin’ stronger everyday

When she gets down on her knees, she finds the courage to believe

She’s a fighter, she’s a figher

Who inspires me, oohooo

She inspires me, yeah

She’s been here before

And she’s only eight years old

But she knows the name of every nurse she sees

And though she don’t like the chemo

She waits it out, never losin’ hope that

Someday soon she’ll be cancer-free

She’s a fighter, got that fire

When they thought she’d fade away

Throws a fist up, keeps her head up

Feelin’ stronger everyday

When she gets down on her knees, she finds the courage to believe

She’s a fighter, she’s a figher

Who inspires, yeah

He’s a fighter, he’s a fighter

Who inspires me

He inspires me

The power of Positivity #YesMan

Recently I have heard a few songs that have lyrics inspired by 2 Corinthians 1:20 which says:-

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

I don’t like to sing words that I don’t understand and just singing “yeah, yeah yeah and amen” or “yes and amen” without any background as to what the yes or amen is for, is barmy in my humble opinion!

The idea behind that verse isn’t some feelgood throwaway idea, but that if God has promised it, then YES it will happen! Through Jesus death we have the confirmation or “Amen” which is translated as “I agree“. (so you should only say “amen” if you agree to the wording of a prayer! Someone did once refuse to say it after i prayed for them because he did not agree with all of that i said!)

If God says “Yes“, Jesus has made it possible through his death and resurrection, giving him authority over everything and we should live ready to receive that promise!

It has been said that there are three answers to prayer:-

  • Yes”
  • “No”
  • “Wait”

A good few years ago, I watched a movie called “Yes Man”, I can recall that at the time of watching it, I had a very hesitant nature, I still am quite cautious and self-confidence is still something I am working on.  But as often occurs when I watch a movie, the character and feelings really resonated within me.

In the movie the character lives alone, doesn’t do much outside his own home and has no one to spend time with, avoiding his best friend and not being active in life enough to meet someone to love.

If it wasn’t for God’s great plan and me saying “yes” to who became my wife, i would have been that guy, stuck at home watching DVDs with no friends.

When i have said yes and tried new things, i have a confirmation of God saying “you can do a lot more than you think you can!” I have realised that I am a very capable person.  I should say yes more to things, I need to not overthink, procrastinate and listen to the doubts or doubters.

What has God promised you?

You may be waiting for a “word from God” to tell you what to do with your life but he may already have said it and you have not listened or followed!

Do you need to say yes to God?
