What can I sacrifice?

“What can I sacrifice – when everything has been given to me?”
My greatest gain I count as loss – compared to Jesus on the cross.
Philippians 3:7 “However, what things were gain to me,
these have I counted loss for Christ.”
1 Timothy 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
Sacrifice your discontentment for Godliness.
I’m overwhelmed by the depth of His love.
He became a sacrifice for me. What can I sacrifice?

I’m Overwhelmed

I’m overwhelmed – by the depth of your love
and how much you give to me
I’m overwhelmed – by the price that you paid
and gave it to me for free

I’m so in awe of you – at times don’t know what to do
I’m overwhelmed – and I’m starting to see
that you’re overwhelmed with me

I’m overwhelmed – that your mercy endures
and your goodness is there for me

I’m overwhelmed – when my faithfulness fails
that your faith is still with me

I’m overwhelmed – You’re overwhelmed with me
So overwhelmed, that you’re a part of me
I’m overwhelmed – by the depth of your love
and how much you give to me

About this book

The essence of this book is the focus on the love of God that surrounds us. With your heart and mind set on the love that is around you, the lies that confound you are dispelled.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, these writings are all about God’s Love and are Mark’s gift back to the One who first loved us. Within this book you’ll find writings similar to the Psalms
and also find it can be used as a devotional.
With personal verses written to God, for and about God, this book spans twenty years of Mark’s spiritual walk through life with Him.

There are also brief insights describing what Godly loving and living is, that you may find helpful with the daily trials of life that you may be facing, as well as with your spiritual journey.
We are “Surrounded by His Love” not by enemies. We are not captives – we have been freed.

Scripture footnotes have been added to each writing, opening up a much broader understanding of their contents. The rhythm, rhyme and brevity of these writings will allow you to absorb the heart and healing of the messages.
The layout of the book is truly a love concordance as well as an interactive scripture guide for the reader to meditate on and to write their own affirmations and thoughts of love.
Because Mark carries the song of the Lord in his heart, most of the writings have melodies within them. If you listen carefully in your spirit, you will also hear the love of God resonating within your heart as you read them. You may find yourself singing them.

This book is prefaced with “Seeds of Love” which are small pieces from within this book, to plant within your heart.


Your tomb is empty

This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ. John 17:3 Lord, make us all one.

Jesus didn’t come here for Jesus – He came here for us..

We all need to know that our tombs are empty – we’re alive.  Make sure that you don’t go back inside when you close the door again tomorrow

and not come   out again until next  year.  Stay out of your tomb – LIFE!
