I'd like to share with you how this blog came to be.

I pray daily--many, many times a day. I pray for others, for myself, for situations, thanks and praise. I was visiting someone else's blog one day, and I saw that she had a prayer journal, and I thought to myself, "What a good idea!"

As I thought on this, the idea flourished into inviting others to share in this experience. Thus, the beginnings of "The Power of Your Love".

This will be a blog where you can address prayer requests, praises, what are your concerns, joys, sorrows. You could contribute a poem that you may have written, a picture that you love that depicts your love of our Lord, a video, a scripture that is particularly meaningful to you and why, anything that is given to the glory of God.

I have several people who have expressed interest in this, and I am going to be inviting them as authors. If you happen to come across this and would like to be included, please let me know.

And now--my first prayer request:

My Father,

As we begin, I ask your blessings upon this venture. Please utilize this spot to glorify your name, and your name alone. All things have come from you, and I lift up my praise and love to you on this day and everyday of my life.

In Jesus' precious name I pray,


~ written by sailorcross 9/13/08

I recently went back and read what 'sailorcross' wrote upon starting this blog. Isn't it beautiful? Doesn't it just about cover so much of the Power of His love.

I did not come on board until much later (the last of the crew here) and then she and I started "The Lighthouse of Prayer" together to do just what she had hoped to do here. 
I found out back at this time, that she is particularly fond of lighthouses and so our Lighthouse was launched together. There is so much power in God's love and in His Light. He shines His Light in our darkness and reveals, if we listen, to how we can go forth in His Light and escape the darkness. A lighthouse has a purpose to guide the sailors to a safe place. Our Lighthouse of Prayer also has that purpose to guide the lost, the broken, the hurting, the sick, to a Safe Place, the Light of our world - Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He came to be a Light to us and hoped that we would be a light to others, when they may be lost, may be shipwrecked, may be going through a storm or when they just need to find the Rock, a Safe Place, a Refuge to wait it out. 
I just felt that it is important to reflect and be His light and lead you once again to read about the beginnings of "The Power of Your Love"! Because although the Power of God's Love is the most important, He calls on each one of us to share that power that comes from His Love and His Light with others.
This is the importance of the Power. We all must be connected to the Source which gives us this power. The power is given to us through Jesus Christ and by His Spirit. But as the words to the song say, "Lord, I come to You..." we must first come to Him. Surrender to Him completely. Let go of whatever is hindering us or being an obstacle in us to move ahead in our journey. FORGIVENESS is the place where this LOVE is released and shines best (as you can see this word with the folded hands of prayer in this blog's header). 
The next line in the song is "let my heart, be changed, renewed
..." which is only possible by the grace found in Our Lord (the next part of the song). We must change, we must be renewed, but if we could do this on our own, why don't we? Because we need Him. We need the Lord and His grace to change us and free us from anything and everything that is hindering us from walking by faith, in His power, authority and strength daily. Yes, daily we must say, "Not my will, but Thine." I surrender all to You this day! Let's start fresh! 

And we can, and we do, BY THE POWER OF HIS LOVE and Grace as we "come to know" Him and His Grace, "the weaknesses" that He sees in us "will be stripped away" by the POWER OF HIS LOVE!

We (I) have posted this song many times on this blog with different videos. Yet, I will share for my last time, my most recent favorite of "The Power of Your Love" ... and let's allow His Spirit to melt these words into our hearts as our prayer every day... until we see Him "face to face" may the knowledge of His Love as He "lives in us, renew our minds" as His "will unfolds in our lives" in LIVING EVERY DAY BY THE POWER OF HIS LOVE!

Thank You Lord
for the Power of Your Love!

Thank You Lord
for holding me, surrounding me

Thank You
for bringing me near to You
Drawing me to Your side

And as I wait
I'll rise up like an eagle
I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on

Thank You LORD!

With all my love and Yours
I bid 'adieu'

* Dedicating this song to a very special someone for their BIRTHDAY, so they remember the many times that we came before the Father: asking, seeking, knocking but mostly thanking Him for her life and her purpose in His Kingdom, as sisters in Christ... we are ever so grateful!!! 

The FRIENDS FOREVER BEAR SURPRISE left to the Party at From the Heart and so should you! Hurry up ... the clowns have arrived and the balloons are hung! We're ready for cake!

*Comments are off since I really want you to visit our birthday sister in Christ and pour out all that God places on your heart (plus you hopefully commented at my main blog).We should do everyone's birthday like this(yeah,right) ... but we are praising God for saving this dear one's life!

[*I'm reposting this video today and linking with SOS, also to make an announcement for December]
done by the 
Verse of the Day

"His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises." 
2 Peter 1:3-4


I love this song, and it was the Verse of the Day done once again by (oparisg)
Upward Call back in Sept., yet it seems perfect for the upcoming praise and focus I plan on doing for all of December (similar to last year's "31 Days of Praise").

I am sharing Shannon Ethridge's devotional "Completely Loved: Recognizing God's  Passionate Pursuit of Us" and focusing on special aspects of His character (like last year) which was my intention when I started blogging with the hope of looking at the Names of God and His character, which are interspersed throughout this blog and my other blogs... even in the header I did over at aMazing Grace ~ Mazes, Messes, Miracles. When I thought about "COMPLETELY LOVED", I immediately thought of THE POWER OF YOUR LOVE

how could I not... 

So I do hope that you will JOIN me in December to see God and His love for you, wrapped in a special package, and designed just for you as "Completely His" (the first book of Shannon's) diving into a deeper intimacy with our heavenly Bridegroom, Jesus Christ... who humbled Himself to be born in a stable, to save us and give us eternal life and so much more... "Loving Jesus Without Limits" a wonderful series by Shannon Ethridge. This was a very special gift from a dear sister for my birthday and I am so grateful for her. 

Did  I mention that YOU ARE COMPLETELY LOVED by God ... and can be COMPLETELY HIS too!

Come join us over at Soaking on Sonday! Soak in the POWER OF HIS LOVE!

And if you know Beth(sailorcross)(warmharte) or even if you don't, you should - Sunday is her birthday, send her some love and best wishes for a wonderful birthday! Let's flood her with the POWER OF GOD'S LOVE and prayers!

Comments are off, since many of you visit me at SOS! I just wanted you to soak and know THE POWER OF HIS LOVE

"I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' 
and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, 
it will be done for him.
Mark 11:23

What kind of faith does it take to move your mountain?

 “We all have mountains to climb and mountains to move.  Jesus taught His disciples that if they had faith, they could move mountains.  You can too.  When you place your faith, your trust, indeed your life in the hands of Christ Jesus, you’ll be amazed at the marvelous things He can do..."
