In The Night Watches

Tis' the time of day
To lay down again
And rest in the night watches
It is hard to accept Thy forgiveness,
Given in the stillness of dusk

Wilt Thou receive me gladly, O Lord,
Lest I leave this world to night?
If the beat of mine heart
Ceases for ever more?

In Thy presence I sit with knees bowed low,
Will this prayer reach heaven's door,
Up into Thine ear?
Or will it remain here,
In the darkness of the earth,
Because mine heart
Is encrusted in pride?

Whatever be Thy will, Jesus,
I know that Thou hearest me
And that Thou cleanses me in Thy blood
For I rest upon Thy promises
The counsel Thou hast given me to day,
Shall I carry to morrow
And the strength Thou showered on me,
Shall be renewed with the sunrise

I give Thee mine life
As I lay me down to sleep
Keep all Thy children safe in Thine hand
And shelter us
With Thy blanket of love

Now I go in peace
Until the morrow,
Lord willing

For ever in His love,

-Noémie H.

Introduction: Let The Journey Begin

Since this is a blog about You, Jesus, I guess it is only appropriate that we begin this journey with a little prayer... Shall we? :) 

Dear God, please let this website be about You first, and not about my desires or what I fancy. Let my prideful and perfectionist attitude depart, only to let Your amazing light shine through... Thank You for giving me Your courage to open this blog, and may I listen to Your voice more than ever before!

Thank You Jesus, amen!

Dear sisters (and prayfully brothers!) in Christ,

Welcome to my little internet world! I must admit that I first wanted to make this blog more "girly" or "appealing" than it is. I wanted the name to be fancy and attractive. But guess what? It failed! It does not sound romantic, neither is it all roses. But I think that whatever holds the name, "Jesus", is the most beautiful thing under and above the stars... I can't precisely predict what this blog will be about, for the Holy Spirit is so spontaneous, but I can assure you that I will not cease to declare my love and devotion for Christ! Therefore, relax and enjoy, because I am about to take you on a little journey through the eyes of a sinner redeemed by love!

I am eager to know what the Lord has planned for us on this trip. Don't forget to pack your full armour of God (Ephesians 6:11)! ;)

Psalm 25:4 
Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You.

In all sisterly love,

This blog might contain scenes of doubt or unpredictable emotions, as well as deep reverence and awe of God. Read at your own risk.
