desparate kids who want some foodMinistry of Mercy                                                                     purpose driven goal from the very beginning:

For from HIM and through HIM and to HIM are all things. Therefore our aim is "To GOD alone be glory forever" (We do what we do because JESUS asks us to) Romans 11:36

My heart is stirred by the stories of missionaries all over the world, sharing the love of JESUS in these times of fear and adversity, yet those missionaries of old were also in times of fear and adversity.  I am truly at peace in my heart knowing that GOD is still in control of all that surrounds us even now.  In divine confidence, I remember that JESUS CHRIST is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in HIM the LORD is always gracious to His people.  I truly believe this with all my heart, soul and mind, because when fear over takes me, this is when JESUS CHRIST himself, comes to my heart and gives me His peace.  Habakkuk  3          (for those who are fearful, Jesus sends His peace.  I pray for the peace of JESUS CHRIST this Christmas season.  What is this peace He offers....It is a peace only He gives, the world cannot offer it.  When you receive His peace, you will know it.  I pray that people all over the world would know and accept the gift of peace that only JESUS can give).

Philippians 2:10-11New King James Version (NKJV)

..."that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."  As believers we should be praising and sharing JESUS.  To Him be the glory. AMEN

Ministry of Mercy serves to give 

Beauty to those whose lives are ashes

Strength to those who live in fear

Gladness to those who are in mourning

and Peace to those in despair.  Luke 4

jesus .001I love this word illustration from facebook of the words I used for 2015.  I can only pray that this is not only words, but my outward expression that others would see JESUS in me.  If you don't think about the possibility GOD can be personal in your life, then I would ask you to consider the Christmas story about HIM, JESUS CHRIST...Who is He?  Plain and simple, JESUS is GOD's Son who was born of a woman, come to earth from heaven, so He could rescue us from sin.  When we believe that JESUS is the Son of GOD come down from heaven to rescue us from our sins, we are adopted into the family of GOD...

JOY IN JESHUA                           One of my favorite artists has explained the christmas story      in a wonderful jewish tribute to the PRINCE OF PEACE   ENJOY this beautiful christmas gift



GOD, who gave to our forefathers many different glimpses of the truth in the words of the prophets, has now, at the end of the present age, given us the truth in the SON.  Through the SON, GOD made the whole universe, and to the SON HE has ordained that all creation shall ultimately belong.  This SON, radiance of the glory of GOD, flawless expression of the nature of GOD, HIMSELF the upholding power of all that is, having effected in person the cleansing of men's sin, took His seat at the right hand of the majesty on high, thus proving Himself, by the more glorious name that He had been given (JESUS CHRIST), far greater than all the angels of GOD (Hebrews 1)   FullSizeRender-5 copy
Thank you JESUS for saving me.  By your Holy Spirit save those who seek You, even pursue those who don't seek you that all would have the opportunity to accept you JESUS as their Savior.cross  Because until the whole world knows, then JESUS will come and take His people home.
