One word for 2015 // Melai

    “... But REJOICE that your names are written in heaven.” – Luke 10:20 (NIV)

At the beginning of this year, the Lord gave me this one word “REJOICE” along with this Scripture: “Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

I’ve been wanting to write about this, I actually wrote down a couple. But I felt that the Lord wanted me to wait. Until one day, the Holy Spirit told me that I should get my pen and my journal, and reminded of this verse in Matthew 10:19 “…Do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say...”

That day came to pass. I sat down still with my pen and journal, and soon after I finished praying, I started to write. And I was amazed as I kept on writing, for I knew they were not my words, clearly they weren’t mine. My heart cried inside, tears of gratefulness - for all He has done, for all His promises, and for HIS UNFAILING LOVE AND HIS AMAZING GRACE.

This is a declaration:

“…. Not what you do for God but what God does for you – that’s the agenda for rejoicing.” – Luke 10:20 (MSG)

Holy Spirit we invite you, come fill us afresh, come fill us anew, and as we read, let our mouths declare your words of truth. Come Holy Spirit, take over.


I will rejoice in the Lord

For He shepherds me –

He is my Good Shepherd.

Nothing can pluck me out of His hand.


He loves me, and I will always

be mindful of His love for me,

and I will live in reliance

of His faithfulness.


He has been so faithful to me

And I know that He always will-

For His faithfulness reaches to the skies

And His love endures forever.


He is my Good Shepherd.


I can rejoice not only in good times.

It does not depend on my situation.

I can rejoice for my name is written in heaven.


“And it’s all because of God’s amazing grace

Because on Calvary’s mountain

He took my place

 And someday, some glorious morning

 I will see Him face to face

All because of God’s amazing grace.”


My life is in His hands

He told me over and over again

that nothing can separate me from Him

Nothing can pluck me out of Jesus’ hands

For I am His –

He has bought me with His blood - His precious blood.

I can rejoice not for what I can do for God

But what God does for me.

And He has done everything for me.

In fact, He had prepared a place for me –

Up there in heaven, where my mansion is.


The Lord loves me,

And not because of what I do for Him

But because He is love.


I will rest in God’s unchanging love

His promises to me are true

Because He is trustworthy in all His promises

And faithful in everything He does.


This journey of life

That I am walking

I am walking with Jesus –

Jesus walks with me  

And He promise me that

He will always be with me to the very end of the age.

He promised me that He himself will go before me

And He will never leave me not forsake me.


I do not know what is ahead of me

But I know in my heart, and in my spirit

That His Spirit lives in me,

It is not I who lives but Christ lives in me.

The life I live now in the body

I live by faith in the Son of God

Who loved me and gave himself for me.


He who promised me is faithful

And He will do it.


At times, when I cannot smile

Because of the pressures of this world,

I will remember that

My Jesus carries me between His shoulders.

So let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him.

For He shield me all day long.


The Lord had promised me

That He will restore me to health

And heals all my wounds.


And in Jesus,

All the promises of God are yes in Him.

So I say Amen.


I will rejoice in the Lord

For I made a choice to rejoice

To rejoice in the Lord!

Not by might nor by power

But by the Spirit!


All to God be the glory for ever and ever Amen.
