Love Lift Me

Welcome to my brothers and sisters who are currently walking with the Lord, and also, in hopes, to future brothers and sisters searching to fill an emptiness. My Powerhouse family is absolutely leaping with joy at finally being able to reach you where you are! We have faithfully waited upon the Lord in spirit and in truth, through petitions and prayers, to have this opportunity to throw open this door into our house. This is a house the Lord has been constructing, building, one body part at a time, so as to glorify His name. Now please, if you will, join with me in this moment by laying your daily cares at the feet of Jesus, and allow yourself some valuable time to be loved on through our hearts sold-out to Jesus, poured-out for you. God spoke with me back a couple of weeks ago that our first message to you was to be a much needed message, and that message is ….. an ALL-encompassing one, love. As you have certainly heard and or read in 1 Peter 4:8, the action of love covers a multitude of sins. Yet this can not just happen on thoughts or even through good intentions. This my brothers and sisters, is where I can testify to every heart reading this post, every heart in need, every heart experiencing an emptiness, (is) found in Powerhouse. Why and how you may be asking yourselves. Jesus is the answer to both; hearts changed to become like His. It is no accident I am here welcoming you, for it was a year and a half ago I was welcomed into the body of Powerhouse of Praise. I walked in their door, seeking truth where I had found it lacking in one place after another. That day, the day the Lord made, set aside for my filling, my taking, my receiving, was set into motion, a new beginning. Little did I know that not only was my heart searching for the fullness of truth in the preaching and teaching of His word, but my heart was in such an injurious state, lacking forgiveness, living in fear of being rejected again, that my walls were so high, separating my heart from what it needed the most, love. My love tank was seriously depleted!. Walking in that door, I began to immediately discover 3 vital working, walking and living personal attributes within that house _ _ _ truthhumility, and most of all, love. It was not until I stepped out, stepped into, that I began to have eyes to recognize how badly I was in need of a love that can tear down all that binds and separates. I had entered into a house of the living God! Arms that embraced me were arms which extended out from hearts changed by the truth of who Jesus Christ IS, the price He paid for our freedom to know that kind of love, to experience that truth filled love. That precious day _ _ _ “Love Lifted Me” _ _ _ towards a new journey, a new beginning, of discovering God’s history of His all encompassing, perfect and ever enduring love for His creation, His true plan of salvation from the beginning of time, that Jesus came to fulfill. This my brothers and sisters, will certainly be an open topic of many great discussions and testimonies as the Holy Spirit leads, in a future posting.


So, in my part of welcoming you to our first online “open house”, I will leave you with these thoughts to chew upon, hoping they will serve to nourish —————————-

for I am firmly believing in the reliability, truth, ability and strength found in You.

ake evident to me where to walk,

for I freely transfer the possession of self __ to You.”


Love Lifted Me    by: James Rowe 

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more;
But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me.
Love lifted me! Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me.

All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling,
In his blessed presence live, ever his praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true merits my soul’s best songs;
Faithful loving service, too, to Him belongs. [Refrain]

Souls in danger, look above, Jesus completely saves;
He will lift you by His love out of the angry waves;
He’s the master of the sea, billows His will obey;
He your Savior wants to be, be saved today. [Refrain]

May our Lord and Savior richly bless you THIS day,

Your sister-in-Christ
