Jesus Stays

Trouble comes and trouble goes –
Jesus stays – Jesus knows –
No matter what seems to be –
Jesus – LORD – cares for me –

I praise You – LORD 

Jehovah Jireh – Jehovah Rapha
Jehovah Jireh – Jehovah Rapha
By His stripes we were healed
By His stripes we were healed

Sickness comes and sickness goes –
Jesus stays – Jesus knows –
No matter what seems to be –
Jesus – LORD – heals me –

I praise You  – LORD

Jehovah Jireh – Jehovah Rapha
Jehovah Jireh – Jehovah Rapha
By His stripes we were healed
By His stripes we were healed

Trouble comes and trouble goes –
Jesus stays – Jesus knows –
In Heaven – on Earth – eternally –
Jesus reigns triumphantly

I praise You – LORD

Psalm 103

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger forever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; to such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all. Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul.

1 Peter 2:2

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Revelation 19:5-6

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

    Love the praise song Carol Ann. And Psalm 103 was once one of my favorite psalms. I knew it by heart and recited it daily. Hadn’t realized I’d forgotten it. Thanks for bringing it to my rememberance.

    A wonderful post.

    • When the trumpet sounds and the dead in Christ rise first, and those who are alive and remain are caught up together with them in the clouds.., Carl D’Agostino will be shouting, “I don’t believe it!” (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18) Blessings to you, Carl…

      • Well I imagine we’ll all have to do a little modification in thinking when that time comes. I just feel the presence now. As long as our heart is in the right place it’ll work out. Hope He brings chocolate though.

      • Yes, you are right that it will all work out. God’s presence is everywhere. He is omnipresent. His Holy Spirit (God) lives in the hearts of his people, so you should feel His presence now, and so, you do.

        I hope, too, that there will be chocolate in our futures! I prefer dark chocolate. I had a mocha coconut frap at Starbucks yesterday. Delicious! I shopped for groceries while enjoying my Starbucks treat. Blessings to you, Carl…

    • What a nice comment, Len. I appreciate you very much. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words. Another fan of dark chocolate! I tried a new Starbucks frap, mocha coconut. Delicious! I asked the person that made it for me to withhold one squirt of the coconut sweetener. I know it was still a huge dose of sugar, but I really enjoyed it. Blessings to you, gloryteller…
