Ephesians 1:3-6, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” For more, read all of chapter 1.

Colossians 2:10, “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”

 

Complete in Thee

Complete in Thee! no work of mine

May take, dear Lord, the place of Thine;

Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,

And I am now complete in Thee.

Complete in Thee—no more shall sin,

Thy grace hath conquered, reign within;

Thy voice shall bid the tempter flee,

And I shall stand complete in Thee.

IMG_0127 

Complete in Thee—each want supplied,

And no good thing to me denied;

Since Thou my portion, Lord, wilt be,

I ask no more, complete in Thee.

IMG_0134 

Dear Savior! when before Thy bar

All tribes and tongues assembled are,

Among Thy chosen will I be,

At Thy right hand—complete in Thee.

IMG_0147 

Yea, justified! O blessed thought!

And sanctified! Salvation wrought!

Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,

  And glorified, I too, shall be!

Psalm 142:4-5, “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.”

The truth that I have been overwhelmed with of late is the fact that My God is good.  I’ve been through a lot in the last year, but today my heart is overflowing with the goodness of God.  He has answered so many prayers.  He has granted some desires of my heart.  He has ministered to my grieving heart in too many ways to share in a blog post.  I have learned that no matter what is going on in my life, God is good. In the middle of sorrow, surgeries, delayed answer to prayer, earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, misunderstandings of language and culture…God is good!

Psalm 119:68, “Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.”

The Lord is good—Tell it wherever you go.

The Lord is good—Tell it that others may know!

Tell of His blessings and tell of His love,

Tell how He’s coming from Heaven above:

The Lord is good—Tell it wherever you go.

How Great Thou Art!

Asuke

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the *worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the *rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:

And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then *I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, My God, how great thou art!

~Carl G. Boberg
