His Testimonies

"Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
by the living Word of God I shall prevail,
standing on the promises of God." -R. Kelso Carter

You tell the Lord, "I am loosing hope!" He answers “Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord... There is hope in your future, says the Lord..." "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." Jeremiah 31:16-17, Galatians 6:9

In the midst of your overwhelming circumstances... trust your Father in Heaven is with you saying, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you." Isaiah 43:2

When you cry, "God, I'm overcome with guilt from past sins" Our Creator declares, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins." Isaiah 43:25

You may pray, "Lord, help my faith to grow!" He says, "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3

"My soul keeps Your testimonies, and I love them exceedingly." Psalm 119:167

Do not allow your feelings, emotions and circumstances to speak to you, but speak to yourself truth from the word of God.
"My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us." - Psalm 62:5-8

"Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
listening every moment to the Spirit's call,
resting in my Savior as my all in all,
standing on the promises of God."

My Theme Song

If I had a theme song I think it would be The Chasing Song by Andrew Peterson.
I really like all of Andrew Peterson's music. I hope you like this song too.

Now and then these feet just take to wandering
Now and then I prop them up at home
Sometimes I think about the consequences
 Sometimes I don't

Well, I realize that falling down ain't graceful
But I thank the Lord that falling's full of grace
Sometimes I take my eyes off Jesus
And you know that's all it takes

Well I wish that I could say that at the close of every day
 I was happy with the way that I'm behaving
'Cause Job, he chased an answer
The wise men chased the Child
Jacob chased her 14 years and he Captured Rachel's smile
 Moses chased the Promised Land
Joseph chased a dream
David, he chased God's own heart
All I ever seem to chase is me

Well, they say a race can only have one winner
And you know you've got to pull out front to win
God knows the only time I'm winning
Is when I'm chasing Him

Well I wish that I could say that at the close of every day
I was happy with the way that I'm behaving
'Cause Samson chased a woman and he chased the Philistines
I'm not quite sure what Jonah chased
But I know he caught the sea
Cain, he chased the harvest
While Abel chased the beasts
David, he chased God's own heart
All I ever seem to chase is me

And Jesus chased the moneymen
And he chased his Father's will
He chased my sin to Calvary
And he caught it on that hill
Saul, he chased the Christians
Till his blindness made him see
David, he chased God's own heart
All I ever seem to chase is me

It's Alright

Olympic Resolve in Prayer Life

We see the passion and determination in the faces of athletes taking part in the Olympics; they give their all to do their very best.

Together as the Body of Christ, we can stand in the gap and pray for the nations with the same fervency and purpose as athletes who compete for a heavenly prize.

The first Friday of every month from 7:30 to 9:30pm, CST you can pray with the GFA family via live streaming services. @: This Friday night, let's believe the Lord will do miracles in the lives of those who have no hope throughout Asia.

Intercede for one another, cry out for the lost, ask God to meet the needs of the helpless and weak. Just like the speaker says in the video above, sometimes it is uncomfortable to know what is going on, we don't always like to hear about those in dire circumstances with great need of our prayer, but what a privilege it is to take on the burdens of others and bring them before the throne of God. "Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" -Gal:6:2
