"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like 
a merchant looking for fine pearls.  
When he found one of great value, he went away 
and said everything he had and bought it".  
Matthew 13:45-46 (NIV)

Lord, ignite our souls,
renew in us Your vision
Take away the things
That take us away from You
Nothing we can hold,
Nothing can compare
To the riches found in following Your Word


Revive us, renew us, cleanse us from sin
For only You, Lord,
Can change us from within
Remake us, so we can present ourselves again
a living, holy sacrifice;
Acceptable and pleasing to You

Lord, I need Your touch;
I need You to restore me
Take away this hardened heart,
That pulls me away from You
Bring me to the place
Of pure and true devotion
Focusing my eyes on You and You alone

Revive me, renew me, cleanse me from sin
For only You, Lord,
Can change me from within
Remake me, so I can present myself again
a living, holy sacrifice;
Acceptable and pleasing to You

Cause us to hunger after You,
To see You as our only goal
Giving all for just one pearl,
The greatest treasure of the soul



I've been so  blessed to hear your songs, especially "Song To My Shepherd", 
"How Awesome Is This Place", "Search Me, O God", "Abba, Father" and 
also Julie Joyner's song
"Rest In Me".

These songs have ministered me so much during this busy time before Christmas....
Special greetings to Julie, she has a lovely singing voice!
(Lea, from Finland)



Rest in me child; wait and see
Listen to my voice and follow me
Be still and hear what I say

I will love you and watch out for you
Guide your steps and show you what to do
I know what's best for you

I would never lead you astray
Or draw you into danger
My plans for you are holy and just
I have your best in mind and I love you

Trust in me child; precious one
Know that I am God
And see what I've done
Don't worry about tomorrow

I have made you;  understand
I knew what you would do 
before your life began
Oh, come to me my little one

I love you with an everlasting love
I will never leave you or forsake you
In spite of all the things you've ever done
The price was paid in full and I love you

I have made you
Please, please understand
I knew what you would do
before your life began
Come to me my little one

Chorus 2

 I love you... Ooh, I love you...



Warm wind blow, breathe on me
Send Your loving life through my soul
Cradle me in Your arms
Blow me where revival flows

For so long I'd been cold
Bitter winds turned my heart to stone
Frozen and lifeless, waiting for spring
isolated and alone  (chorus)

Then one day You broke through
Your warm breath, melting my soul
My heart had softened,
New life had sprung,
Your hope was causing me to grow (chorus)

Warm wind blow, breathe on me
Send Your loving life through my soul

Our 30th anniversary summer conference is approaching.... over 400 people
have registered so far to the conference.  IŽm sure that it will be
wonderful time in the Word of God and the fellowship of saints.

Next week on Saturday weŽll have a missions night during the conference
and we are planning to sing two songs in the Saturday evening meeting:
"You Are Awesome, God !!" and "Rest In Me".
